Joey King detailed the amount of work that went into her VMAs look: ‘I don’t really look like this’

Joey King said it took a lot of work to achieve her red-carpet look for the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, which aired on Sunday.

During the event’s pre-show, King spoke with musician Travis Mills about how she prepped for the awards ceremony, according to Glamour. She told Mills that though others might not realize it, she was wearing fake hair, body makeup, and “a lot of Spanx.”

I’m wearing Versace. My first time wearing Versace,” King said, according to the publication. “What’s up? And what all went into it is I’m wearing a lot of Spanx, I’ve got some fake makeup on my legs so that they look shiny, and yeah, I have extensions in my hair. So you know, I don’t really look like this.”

Earlier in the week, King shared before-and-after photos from her VMAs experience with fans on Instagram. She first posted an image of herself in her red-carpet look, writing “VMAS!!!!!!!!!!🌓🌹” in her caption.

As Insider’s Darcy Schild previously reported, “The Act” actress paired her long-sleeved, form-fitting dress with $470 red pumps from ISCREAM. To complete her look, King wore a coral manicure, sleek, straight hair parted down the middle, two gold clips attached to each side of her head, and oversized Versace chains.

Her beauty team for the night was comprised of fashion stylist Jared Eng, manicurist Thuy Nguyen, hairstylist Dimitri Giannetos, and makeup artist Allan Avendaño.

After filming her award presentation, King switched into a more casual look that included a floral button-down shirt by Garçons Infidèles, graphic T-shirt, denim shorts, and flip flops. The actress also wore a red-and-black face mask.

She shared a photo of the outfit on Instagram, writing: “That post VMAS glow amiright? #BackToReality #BackToMyCouch.

Welcome to the Blumhouse | First Trailer

Unsettle” in for a quartet of disturbing Blumhouse Television and Amazon Studios films that will be hitting the Amazon Prime Video streaming service in October. The two studios are gearing up to release four horror films on the platform next month and the new teaser for the upcoming films promises that they will provide all manner of chills.

The roughly 70-second teaser offers a glimpse at four of the eight “Welcome to the Blumhouse” series of films that will eventually make their way to Amazon’s streaming service. The four films are titled “Black Box,” “Evil Eye,” “The Lie,” and “Nocturne,” and though the scenes in the new trailer rapidly shift from film to film, the teaser suggests that each upcoming film could offer as many chills as the best of Blumhouse Television’s horror releases.

Black Box” and “The Lie” will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on October 6, while “Evil Eye” and “Nocturne” will premiere on the streaming service on October 13.

The “Black Box” synopsis reads: “After losing his wife and his memory in a car accident, a single father undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is.” “The Lie” will kick off when a “teenaged daughter confesses to impulsively killing her best friend, two desperate parents attempt to cover up the horrific crime, leading them into a complicated web of lies and deception.”

Evil Eye” centers on how a “seemingly perfect romance turns into a nightmare when a mother becomes convinced her daughter’s new boyfriend has a dark connection to her own past.”

The “Nocturne” synopsis reads: Inside the halls of an elite arts academy, a timid music student begins to outshine her more accomplished and outgoing twin sister when she discovers a mysterious notebook belonging to a recently deceased classmate.

The teaser trailer for the four films is set to the disarmingly relaxed “What’s Up” by indie pop musician FJØRA. The song is produced by Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated producer Linda Perry, who served as vocalist of 4 Non Blondes.
