Sheer looks at the 2016 Video Music Awards: Hailey Baldwin vs. Ashley Graham

by Paige Exell -

On Sunday night, celebrities gathered at Madison Square Gardens in New York City for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. As expected, Beyonce took over her thrown, winning numerous awards and becoming the most awarded artist in VMA history. Meanwhile, Rihanna was awarded with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, stealing our hearts (and Drake's) once again.

But while the MTV VMAs are about celebrating the music industries past and current icons (see: Britney Spears), they're also a chance for celebs to showcase over-the-top fashion and beauty looks on the red carpet. This year, it was all about sheer. From sheer black jumpsuits to sheer dresses adorned with jewels, sparkles and feathers, celebs weren't afraid to let it all hang out for this years' VMAs.

The two sheer looks that stood out the most? Hailey Baldwin's sheer black jumpsuit and Ashley Graham's sheer black floor-length gown. The best sheer look? You decide!



At this years' VMAs, jumpsuits took centre stage over the traditional glamorous gowns we're used to seeing on the red carpet, with celebrities like Amber Rose, Holland Roden, Baddie Winkle, and Halsey opting for the functional trend. One of our favourite jumpsuits of the night? Hailey Baldwin's sheer beaded silk tulle number from Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2016 collection. The suit was black, beaded and embellished with a leafy pattern that covered her black lingerie. She paired her sultry jumpsuit with a pair of strappy black heeled sandals and matching black hoop earrings that brought us some retro vibes.

As for her makeup, Hailey kept it simple with a neutral eye and nude lip. She styled her short new haircut with tousled waves that added some serious volume and texture!


Meanwhile, plus size model Ashley Graham showed off a sheer look of her own, opting for a transparent floor-length embellished long-sleeve gown by Naeem Khan. The model went simple on the accessories as to keep the attention on her sultry ensemble, wearing nothing more than metallic nail polish that complimented her look.

Like Kim Kardashian, Ashley opted for the 'wet-hair' look, wearing her short brown locks in a slightly tousled, slightly damp 'do. She kept her makeup simple with a matte complexion, nude lip, and seriously long lashes that stood out from the crowd – even next to that dress!
