Rose McGowan’s 1998 VMAs moment is so burned into all our collective memories that it’s no surprise that few celebrities have tried to top it. In case you’ve somehow forgotten, McGowan showed up on the arm of then-boyfriend Marilyn Manson wearing a sparkly sheer veil down her front connected by a handful of delicate strings … and not much else. Even red-carpet risk takers like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna haven’t gone quite so bold (though Rih’s come close). It appears Amber Rose thought we were overdue.

RELATED: See even more VMA style!

The star attended with husband Wiz Khalifa in the polar opposite of her wild wedding dress: A sparkly series of chains linked to create the illusion of a dress, over a sparkly G-string. Silver sandals and a big smile completed the look. Khalifa wore a statement-making shirt over slim pants and classic shoes.

We give both ladies props for their daring ensembles while silently praying this does not catch on outside of the VMAs. Now we’re looking for you to weigh in.

Are these people related to the Emperor? Nothing styling, gorgeous, or flattering about either “dress”! Pathetic hardly expresses it……

Marcia on

The only real thing that amazes me out of this whole thing is that thirty seven percent of people who voted actually thought Rose McGowan looked better.

What’s with these Miss Piggys? How in the world do they think they look good? Who lied to them? At least McGowan is not fat, but Amber Rose should cover those York hams.

ANB on

Ana you have some serious issues if you think Amber Rose is fat. Poor choice in outfit, yes, fat, no.
