Dressing up for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards is not a walk in the park. You have to be extra conscious about striking a balance between stylish and edgy. It’s an occasion full of creative artists whose idea of an awards show attire is something crazy so you definitely don’t want to be left behind. On the other hand, you also don’t want to end up on someone’s worst-dressed list.
For Lucy Hale, who was tasked to be the night’s host, the pressure is probably even stronger. But we have to hand it to the Pretty Little Liars actress because she pulled off the perfect ensemble:

The 25-year-old actress and singer gussied up in a leather halter top from Sachin + Babi and mixed it with a classier skirt – this floral maxi number from Zimmermann. If balance was what the You Sound Good To Me singer was after, she pulled it off with aplomb.
The leather top added the edgy appeal necessary for an awards show like the MTV VMAs and the skirt cleaned up the look, with its floral pattern and peek-a-boo detailing. She accessorized with a pair of teardrop-shaped earrings from Graziela Gems, EF Collection jewelry and a pair of silver sandals.
Lucy’s statement skirt is still available if you want to get your hands on it:
