This is giving off Britney Spears at the VMAs, but a couture take. The head-turning denim gown is far from casual and she looks beautiful, sexy and elegant. The blue eye shadow is the ideal accent for this flawless effort.

She looks gorgeous, but one wonders if she’s uncomfortable — does the front of the skirt need to be carried? Regardless of the logistics, the dress is cool and there’s drama in the glove and the slicked-back glam.
