Charli XCX rocks 'mermaid' look at MTV EMAs

An awards ceremony gives the A-list an excuse to go overboard with their wardrobe, and the 2016 MTV European Music Awards on Sunday night (06Nov16) was no different.

Heading up the bold choices was Charli XCX who rocked a pink cropped top and flares combo, adorned with giant pink discs. Adding a grunge vibe to her hippy outfit, the 24-year-old Brit wore her hair in a middle parted ponytail and a choker necklace, with a slick of red lipstick and a pink faux fur stole finishing the look.

“It’s a day by day thing, sometimes I feel very confident, other days I don’t,” she told Mail Online when quizzed on her outfit. “You know, I think everyone gets like that; sometimes it’s on, sometime’s it’s off. But tonight I’m ready to party! I’m feeling good in my mermaid outfit.”

Earlier in the evening Charli uploaded a selfie to her Instagram page, telling fans: “feeling spicy for the emas”.

Also walking the red carpet in Rotterdam, Netherlands was Joe Jonas’ band DNCE, with band member Cole Whittle wearing what appeared to be a black and white onesie, tucked into knee high white boots. Joe himself kept his look low-key in a sweater and ripped jeans and Jack Lawless and JinJoo Lee went for leather touches.

Host Bebe Rexha had seven outfit changes throughout the course of the evening, wearing everything from a jewel-embellished mini dress, to a spangly purple jacket and trouser suit. She also went bold in a sparkly pair of highwaisted pants, worn over nude fishnet tights.

MTV star Elettra Lamborghini, from show Super Shore, left little to the imagination in a sheer bodysuit, with black squares strategically covering her modesty, and fellow MTV star Chloe Ferry from Geordie Shore was also happy to show off her assets, in a thigh-bearing black split dress.
