HUGE NEWS today, y'all! Frank Ocean is officially performing at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards! *holds in blood-curdling squeals of glee for fear of permanently wrecking coworkers' ear drums* That's right, world: this year's three-time nominee is joining the 2012 VMA performance roster alongside Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and more, AND this is extra epic for Frankie because (much like the boys of One Direction, this will mark his very first VMA performance. EVER!
As MTV's Style arm, we're just as concerned with the silky smooth vocals Frank is expected to lay down on the VMA stage as we are about what exactly Ocean is going to wear. His performance style is characterized by simple ensembles that let his musical brilliance do all the leg work. He verrrrrrry rarely gets behind the mic without his trademark rising sun bandana, so we definitely expect to see that. The rest of Frank's outfit, however, is a complete toss-up, but we fully intend to take that stab in the dark.
He's been wearing this two-tone oxford shirt a lot lately, but we're going to suggest maybe he dress the look up a little bit for the big night with this forest green x metallic silver version we spotted at Need Supply. When he's not rocking plain white under the button-up, he opts for photo-print graphic t-shirts. We like this A.P.C. astronaut number because it's, y'know, Moonman festive.
