I’m a huge Halsey fan, so realistically, I’d cheer her on even if she showed up to the MTV Video Music Awards in a pair of gym shorts and a hoodie. So when the Washington Township native rolled up to the white carpet rocking chocolate brown beach waves (is there a hairstyle she can’t pull off?), a stunning Yousef Al-Jasmi jumpsuit and strappy Stuart Weitzman heels, I obviously lost my cool.
The 21-year-old continued to slay when it was time to take the stage with The Chainsmokers to perform their single “Closer.” Her super short jeweled crop top and statement choker served up perfect early 2000’s pop star vibes.
In Vogue’s VMAs Best Dressed poll, the singer came in second, beating the usually untouchable Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Naomi Campbell. In fact, Halsey was number one until Britney Spears and her Julien Macdonald dress took the lead.
Though the jumpsuit did make headlines for being sheer, Halsey’s VMA looks weren’t even mentioned in most of the best dressed roundups (trust me, I sat through about three of them this morning) and fans were pretty annoyed on Twitter.
