Ariana Grande Is Wearing The Hottest Leather Mini Dress At The VMAs

If you’ll recall, Ariana Grande wore the sweetest little feminine floral dress to last year’s VMAs. But the year is no longer 2013, and Ariana Grande is no longer merely a Nick star (not that she was merely that then, but just go with it), nor is she merely a pre-show performer. Just 12 months later, her transition to full-fledged chart-topping bombshell is complete—and what put her over the edge is the insane[ly awesome] Moschino leather mini dress (repeat: Leather. Mini. Dress.) she’s wearing at the 2014 Video Music Awards.

There are zippers. There are snaps. There are thigh-high leather boots. There is very, very little fabric. It could not be more different than what our girl Ari wore to the show last year, but our girl Ari did not have a best-selling album or five hundred billion (approximately!) singles on the charts last year.

Good thing her hair remains unchanged, or else we seriously wouldn’t recognize her.
