Who Wore Boots at the 2011 MTV VMAs Worse? Britney Spears Vs. Katie Holmes

August 29, 2011 • By Erika

Oh dear.

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards was already lackluster fashion-wise, but the worst pairs of shoes of the night just had to be boots.

We couldn’t choose which of these two celebrities in boots is worse so we thought we’d ask the help of Boots4You readers.

Let’s start with the lady of the night Britney Spears, who was honored with a big tribute performance at last night’s VMAs:

Britney Spears likes it tight and short and unsurprisingly, that’s what she chose to wear for the 2011 MTV VMAs.

She went for this chevron-patterned sequined black romper from Moschino paired with a low-slung belt.

On her feet are the boots in question, a black patent open-toed pair from Gina Shoes which cuts off all the length from Britney Spears’ legs.

This outfit looks a lot like what Britney wore at KIIS FM’s 2011 Wango Tango Concert in May and we weren’t much of a fan of that outfit either.

Next up is Katie Holmes whom we can’t fathom why she went for this particular pair of boots given all her other amazing shoes:

Katie Holmes loves her Azzedine Alaia dresses and clearly, Azzedine Alaia dresses love her back.

Her hair looks great, her makeup is fabulous, the dress is beautiful but everything just falls apart when we get to her shoes.

We really can’t understand why Katie Holmes went for these Proenza Schouler ankle boots when she has successfully worn Azzedine Alaia dresses with beautiful sandals and pretty pumps in the past.

Maybe she thought she should go a bit more “edgy” because it’s the MTV Video Music Awards?

Boots CAN make a dress look tougher and sexier but not this boot and certainly not with that dress.
