Robert Pattinson's fiancee FKA twigs might have lost at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, but the British singer won accolades for her red carpet style.
Twigs was nominated in three categories at the VMAs -- Artist to Watch, Best Visual Effects and Best Cinematography. American rapper Fetty Wap beat twigs in the Artist to Watch category, according to MTV.
In the Best Cinematography category, Flying Lotus ft. Kendrick Lamar's music video "Never Catch Me” bagged the VMA. Twigs' music video for her track “Two Weeks” was also nominated for Best Visual Effects, but she lost to Skrillex & Diplo and Justin Bieber's collaboration of "Where Are U Now.”
This was the first time that twigs was nominated at the MTV VMAs. She has previously been nominated for the Grammy Awards, Mercury Prize and even Brit Awards. The 28-year-old has recently won the YouTube Music Awards. Her name was chosen from the list of 50 greatest artists and YouTube performances.
Though twigs did not win any awards at the MTV VMA, she managed to win praises of critics because of her red carpet style. Unlike her MET Gala red carpet appearance where she was flanked by Pattinson, her MTV VMA red carpet appearance was solo. The “Glass and Patron” singer ditched her rebellious style of dressing up, and opted for a slightly different look by wearing a black Atelier Versace corset and skirt outfit.
Twigs' dress accentuated her waist line and even showed off her legs in a sheer skirt. She even ditched her regular braided hairstyle and opted for a simple, curly-haired look. The singer did not go overboard with accessories and make-up and kept her look simple with jewellery from designer Eva Fehren.
This is the first time twigs has opted for a traditional look on the red carpet. The singer made headlines in March when she wore a multi-coloured Alexander McQueen birds of paradise dress with feathers at London's Victoria & Albert Museum for the exhibition, “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.”
However, her most outrageous outfit till date has been her MET Gala Christopher Kane gown that had male private part on it.
