Amber Rose's 'VMA' Outfit is a Total Rose McGowan Exhibitionist Throwback - PHOTO

Ladies and gentlemen, start your fashion engines. The carnival of absurd fashion that is the VMAs has officially begun. And boy, are things off to a strong start. Amber Rose's VMA outfit on the red carpet is a chain-mail dress that embodies the "if you got it, flaunt it" principle. Without a doubt, this dress is, erm, a conversation piece. Actually, come to think of it, this look is like a '20s follies bergere costume that amounts to a bit of a Rose McGowan 1998 VMAs exhibitionist moment. Because obviously, this dress is a dress that's meant to be talked about.

This, my friends, is no dress, but an elaborate draped body chain with matching skivvies. Really though, the operative concepts here are sparkle, chains and skin. All I gotta say is, thank God this is southern California in the summer. Whether or not I can see London, France, and the English Channel, I have to give Rose her kudos. This gal commits with her fashion. The VMAs come but once a year, and Amber Rose will drape her body in extremely heavy materials for this sake. Bonkers fashion creations of the ultra-revealing kind are what Amber Rose exists for, and she knows this better than anyone. Plus, g-strings made of diamonds and chain mail is not for the faint of heart.
