Apparently Cara Delevingne (above) was coerced by Saint Laurent to submit to each and every grouping. However, while I don't typically recommend shaving your head and also matching your lipstick to your boots, somehow her top quarter still looks stunning. And that, in a nut-shell, is why she is a model. Overall though: So-So.

If this Zuhair Murad dress was not entirely see-through then I would have to argue that it was too demure for an MTV event. However, since her entire body is on full view like a menu in a restaurant window, it indeed satisfies categories #1 and #3 and is therefore acceptable fare. Standing O!
Yara Shadidi's face is absolute perfection. (Doesn't she resemble Chilli from TLC?!) She is a glorious beauty but whereas I covet all of the pieces of her Gucci outfit separately, I'm unconvinced that they should all be playing on the same team. I'm going to say So-So since each component has extreme independent merit and since this ensemble addresses categories #3, #4, and #6 and since I'd abandon all of my morals and good sense to have 1/10 of her natural beauty.
