Cassie VMAS 2016 Red Carpet Look

Cassie graced the red carpet wearing a hot, new look for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. The singer was seen in a Balmain Jacket and Gucci Metallic Leggings. Her accessories for the evening included a Gold Body Chain and Handbag.

The eye-opener was Cassie’s neon hair color; very fitting for the awards show red carpet!

To re-create this look, fashion girls (and guys) can visit their local ASOS store online.  Simply purchase a Ponte Blazer and Gold Leggings.  Pair this look with a Body Chain and Zip Pouch Handbag. For a more conservative twist, add a Fitted Cami Top underneath the blazer.

Don’t forget to accent the hair with Blonde Hairspray, Extensions, or even a Wig. The singer/dancer’s red carpet look was trendy, fun, and inspirational.  Dare to be different!
