8 Looks That Could Have Been Salvaged At The VH1 Do Something Awards

Worst-Dressed At The VH1 Do Something Awards

We’ve always sighed about the fact that, where there’s a best-dressed list, there has to be a not-so-best-dressed list. We’ve already taken care of the best-dressed list at the VH1 Do Something Awards that took place yesterday in Santa Monica, California. And now comes the part we don’t like. We’re not going to call this the “worst-dressed” list, but instead, offer insight into, what we think, could have salvaged these outfits. We’ll start with Lea Michele‘s Giorgio Armani dress. We love the hair, we love the Jenni Kayne shoes and the Samira 13 jewelry. We even like the silver Fendi clutch, even though it looks kind of smushed. The problem is that we’re seeing far too much sternum and leg in the same outfit. Too much skin combined with the ruffles makes us feel like she’s about to break into the cha-cha. Olivia Munn‘s next. We love the color and texture of her bright Alice + Olivia frock, but really can’t get past the block-like cream pumps that are so wrong for this outfit. They weigh the whole thing down. We’re also digging the color of Sophia Bush‘s bright orangeOlcay Gulsen gown, but the fit just doesn’t sit right with us. It’s the same with Kristen Bell‘s crazy, colorfulJenni Kayne Resort 2013 dress. It’s absolutely not the right fit, and the Jimmy Choo sandals are too clunky for the dress, as well. This is depressing isn’t it? Such lovely ladies — we’re sure they’ll get it right the next time. We have more looks in the gallery below, so how about you check them out and tell us how they could be saved?

10 Best-Dressed At The VH1 Do Something Awards: The Men And Women Who Shook Things Up

VH1 Do Something Awards Best-Dressed List

We’re doing a little something different today for our best-dressed list. The VH1 Do Something Awards took place yesterday inSanta Monica, California, and we’re shaking things up by putting the men and women in the same best-dressed list. What can we say — everyone has equal opportunity to look good! Having said that, can we start with the dudes first? Because they really brought it on the carpet. Guys like Harry Shum Jr. and Nick Cannon looked super spry in formal wear, and Cannon gets extra points for those raspberry brogues. John Cho and Will.i.am went two different direction within the casual sphere. Cho was hipster and streamlined in black textures with cool sneakers, but Will.i.am went all fashionista in shades of cream, ochre and olive. And pulled it off, we might add. The blazer ain’t easy to wear.

As far as the women are concerned, the Twilight ladies ruled, in our opinion. Ashley Greene debuted a new, light hair color, and paired the ‘do with a complementary jungle-printed, metallicMichael Kors Resort 2013 dress with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a Roger Vivier clutch. Her cast mate, Nikki Reed, was elegant and Grecian in a beige, belted Lela Rose gown. Naysayers may sniff that it’s a tad bedsheet-like, but you know what — it’s a pretty gorgeous bedsheet. Hats off to Ellie Kemper for taking on a black-and-gold brocade dress, as well. She’s a smart lady for pairing the dress with really strappy shoes too, to lighten the look up. If your interest is piqued, then head on to the gallery for the rest of our best-dressed list.

Watch & Learn: “Throw Some D’s (Remix)”

Watch & Learn: We peep a video and come up with five things nobody knew.

Kanye West‘s new clip for "Throw Some D’s" is a remix of Rich Boy‘s southern-fried hit about throwing rims on a Caddy and lovin’ the spin. But the "Touch the Sky" MC has his own rather sexy interpretation of the phrase. As West was supposedly unavailable for the shoot, the video stars his "old-ass cousin." Hmmm … Check our notes:

- When Kanye turns sixty, there’s a good chance he’ll bear a striking resemblance to Mark Twain

- In the south, D’s are rims. In Chicago, D’s are cups.

- If you’re Kanye West, Grey Goose is a valid excuse for infidelity. If you’re anyone else, it’s not.

- Alicia Keys’? They’re real.

- Halle Berry’s? They might be real. Kanye … I mean his old-ass cousin … isn’t sure but he’d definitely like to find out.
