Ariana Grande ups ante in leather at MTV awards

NEW YORK (AP) - Ariana Grande upped her sex appeal with an ooh-la-la black leather mini and matching thigh-high boots but kept the signature girly high ponytail while British pop singer Charli XCX wore a yellow tiger-print leotard Sunday to the MTV Video Music Awards.

"I feel sexy in it," said Charli, among the early red carpet walkers. "I think my spirit animal is probably a tiger."

The 21-year-old Grande worked long zippers back and front on her strapless Moschino moto look. Charli's tight animal-print leotard and leggings were designed by the same Italian brand.

Designer Jeremy Scott joined Charli in her yellow, yellow world in bright tuxedo tails - chest bared - with a big smiley face on the back.

Kesha, sometimes a red carpet shocker, went classic in a floor-length sparkler. Amber Rose, who is married to Whiz Khalifa, decided on a Vegas showgirl moment, her chest barely covered in strands of beads that exposed all as they cascaded down in loose loops to a tiny bikini bottom.

Taylor Swift arrived in a long-sleeve, blue lace shorty romper with a lettered alphabet theme to go with her new short 'do. It was designed by London-based Mary Katrantzou.

Laverne Cox was in sparkly blue, a space-age one-sleeve from Marc Bouwer, and Miley Cyrus tugged on a tiny strapless black leather midriff-baring top she wore with high-waisted matching trousers.

Jessie J stood out in a pale green vintage Halston goddess gown with a deep V halter, and Jennifer Lopez showed off her curves in silver cutouts.

The show was nothing but simulated sex by fame hungry women. It's very sad to see, no wonder the young generation only cares about making a quick buck off their body while they can't read.
