Ahhh, we're on the second day of Holland Roden's timeline to the VMAs, and our MTV.com red carpet host has less than a week to get her ENTIRE look together. Eep! It's a lot of pressure, but luckily she has her longtime stylist and friend Karen Raphael to help her out. Yesterday, she met up with Karen to discuss exactly what kind of dress she was looking for, and today, she gets to try them on! YUS. Both ladies decide they definitely want to go for something more dramatic, and Holland pulls out some of her favorite pieces from the racks and puts them to the test.
First up—a cute and punky Alice + Olivia sequin leopard frock complete with a black tulle skirt. Holland loves that it's comfy and flattering but is worried that it may be a WEE too safe her big red carpet moment. She also pulls out a GORGE Maria Lucia Hohan gown in a dusty rose color. Holland loves the hue and thinks this dress will make her look like a "Grecian goddess," but is worried the peplum won't fit her body right. For her final pick, she tries on a floor-sweeping gold and black strapless Erin Fetherston dress that, after a small alteration, will totally accentuate her curves. Watch Holland try on the dresses below, and be sure to vote on which frock you think she should wear to the VMAs!
