Breaking news: MTV Style is so excited to announce that Grimes (Claire Boucher) and Rachel Antonoff will host the 2013 Video Music Awards Red Carpet Report for MTV.com on Aug. 25. AHHHH. That’s right—this year we’re bringing you double the awesomeness with two hosts instead of one because, well, we go hard in Brooklyn, y’all. You may know Grimes for her ethereal vocals, but we also know her as a style icon who has landed numerous fashion mag covers and even launched a clothing collab with Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane. Teaming up with Claire will be Rachel—an effortlessly cool New York-based designer who is also just an all-around amazing and hilarious gal. We fell in love with her during our House of Style episode where she and bestie Mae Whitman picked out their favorite dresses and dished on how they first bonded over flatulence. (Seriously.) “I couldn’t be more excited to be co-hosting this and so excited to be doing it with Grimes, she is the coolest! I’m thinking of wearing a long floral skirt with matching bra top but we need to secure the closure first so people don’t get a big (tiny) show.” Man, this is gonna be good.
Grimes and Rachel follow in the footsteps of former Red Carpet Report hosts Coco Rocha, Christian Siriano, Kat Graham, and, most recently, Holland Roden. Grimes said, “I am hard pressed to leave my studio at such a creative time of year, but deep in my heart I must know if Macklemore went to the thrift shop for his red carpet look. Also stoked to be joined by co host Rachel Antonoff, cuz I would be terrified to do this alone haha.” We can’t wait to see these soon-to-be-BFFs in action, so be sure to tune in Aug. 25 to watch Claire and Rachel talk all-things fashion!
