Kendall and Kylie Jenner at the MMVA: A Style Journey


So yesterday in the great country of Canadia (lol), the youngest offsprings of the Kardashian/Jenner clan hosted the MuchMusic Video Awards. Social media exploded, asking why anyone would ever let Kendall Jenner host anything after she proved that she couldn’t read a teleprompter at the BBMAs last month. But say what you want about their hosting abilities, they were undeniably the best dressed girls there.

Not too long ago, we wrote about how Kendall has really stepped out from behind the shadows of her older sister (and probably the most famous), Kim. The same can be said for Kylie Jenner, who at only 16 has developed her own distinct sense of style – it’s pretty evident on her Instagram. The two ladies were styled by the family’s favourite stylist, Monica Rose – who has proven that she has quite a soft spot for Australian labels as they made quite a few appearances during the night.

The first outfits for the night were of course, for the red carpet walk and this included the dress that has divided the internet. We personally think that the Fausto Puglisi gown is actually a masterpiece. Long-sleeved, a high neckline and some gorgeous embellishment provided for a demure top half then came the crotch-skimming slits which show off Kendall’s model pins. And double-sided tape triumphs again! Kylie opted for a orange, intricately beaded mini dress by Nicolas Jebran - which at first look seems more age-appropriate but then you remember that she’s 16 and those tastefully placed sheer panels show off quite a lot.



The next outfits were a little more demure with both sisters opting for long pants. Kendall showing off her tiny frame is a bustier style peplum-top by Maria Lucia Hohan. But let’s be honest, Kylie steals the show in this jumpsuit by Alon Livne - a young Israeli designer (how haven’t we heard of him before?) The fun one-piece shows off some interesting mixed-material appliqué techniques but again drew critique from people about how it wasn’t age appropriate for a 16 year old. Oh well, you can’t please everyone.



We don’t know about you but it always feels great to see Australian labels on an international stage. Kylie is seen here wearing a beaded Sass & Bide creation from their AW14 ‘Novateur’ collection which showed at NYFW earlier this year. Kendall matched the grey colour palette with a one-shouldered, shiny snakeskin printed gown by Welsh designer, Julien MacDonald complete with nude mesh panels that provide an element of sexiness.





Long live Australian designers! Both sisters went for homegrown labels and sparkly ensembles in this final photo. Kendall showed off her model figure in a iridescent sequinned suit by Perth label, Zhivago. While Kylie wore Alex Perry again (she also wore one of his dresses at the BBMAs), this time opting for an unreleased mini dress from his MBFWA collection which shows off his new love of mixing in leather with his usual ethereal beaded silk.



In the end, we can’t even decide which one of favourite looks are. We can only say that these girls are definitely killing the fashion game.
