It’s rare to catch 5 Seconds of Summer in anything other than their usual beat-up bands tees. Not that we mind! (Trust me—I really, really do not mind.) But tonight marked their very first VMA performance AND MOONMAN(!), so they pulled out all the stops. And by stops, I mean they topped their usual black skinny jeans and worn-in Vans with some very expensive jackets and a little extra hair pomade.
Not that they knew what they had on. When Rachel Antonoff, MTV.com’s red carpet correspondent, asked what the boys were wearing, they said, “Clothes.” Which is, yes, a true statement. But that was pretty much the extent of their sartorial knowledge. But in a charming way.
Fear not, they were back in their beloved band tees for their performance, PHEW! So, if you were worried that they went and got fancy on you now that they’re winners of important awards, well, stop yer worrying.
