Kylie Jenner's MMVA Style Ruled Too, So Watch Out, Kendall!
Poor Kylie Jenner. With sisters like tabloid queen Kim Kardashian and actual, legit, up-and-coming model Kendall Jenner, the 16-year-old is constantly getting upstaged by practically everyone in the Kardashian family (even Rob, amidst his much-publicized weight issues and the family’s rumored ire over him skipping the Kimye wedding) and missing out on all the attention typically reserved for the baby in the family.
I mean, sure, she dates the ridiculously cute and equally famous Jaden Smith; has nearly 10 million Instagram followers; and recently “wrote” a young adult novel, so yes, she gets her fair share of time in the spotlight. But when it comes to fashion, at least, it’s rare that the youngest Kardashian klan member is the topic of conversation.
Take Sunday’s 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards, for example. Hosted by both Kendall and Kylie, I would wager that at least three-quarters of the buzz surrounding the annual event and its fierce fashion has to do with Kendall’s insanely sexy, double-slit, super-leg-baring gown, or even the cutout-back, python-print dress she slipped into during the awards show. And as much as these sultry looks earned the limelight they received, it must be said: Kylie’s ensembles deserved their fair share of praise and attention, too.
Let's just start with her red carpet look. Yes, it was short. Yes, it was tight. And yes, it showed a fair amount of skin (or, at least, the illusion of skin). But that rich orange hue looks absolutely divine against her olive skin and dark locks (hey, where's the blue?!), and the all-over beading really is a work of art (though the shoes are a total snooze fest).
Hitting the stage in a new ensemble, baby Jenner also looked undeniably pretty in her printed mini dress, a look she kept pared down with minimal jewelry, another nude lip, and basic strappy sandals.
Switching in the middle of the show, Jenner ditched her short hemlines in favor of a fresh, color-blocked ensemble that — while leaving room for improvement in the pants department — looked both playful and mature (and most definitely fashion-forward) all at the same time.
Let's see a close up of that amazing top.
Just as I expected: Structured, satiny, and oh-so chic. And even though it's showing a little more skin than I would want my 16-year-old daughter (or sister or niece) revealing, there's no denying that it's a fierce piece of fashion that goes beyond your typical Kardashian klothing. And that's something to be applauded, right?
