Singapore fashion brand Depression got a shout out at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards when American singer-songwriter Adam Lambert strutted down the red carpet in a pair of grey lace-up platform shoes from the brand.
Lambert, who’s known for his flamboyant style that flits between rocker and glamourous, sported a shiny Lanvin suit with black lapels to attend the VMAs show and rounded his ensemble off with Depression shoes from the Singapore brand’s Autumn Winter 2013 Plastic Surgery collection.
Kenny Lim, the director and part of the designer duo that makes up Depression, told herworldPLUS: “I had no idea that Adam Lambert had a pair of Depression shoes! I only knew he had worn them to the VMAs when I woke up this morning and saw my Twitter and Facebook accounts flooded with congratulatory messages. It’s really an honour to have Adam Lambert wear our shoes to such an important event. I was really surprised and I have to say – great styling!”
The other half of the duo, Andrew Loh said : "I love Adam Lambert. I love his style. He dares to be himself and dares to be different. He's definitely an icon."

Stars shock with wild looks at MTV VMAs
It was a wild night of fun, fashion, and performances at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
While Lady Gaga appeared surprisingly tame on the red carpet in a black dress and an almost bare-faced look, other stars like Ciara and model Erin Wasson sexed it up in their leopard print, feather-embellished and sheer dresses.
Former "Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus, clearly aiming to show that she was beyond the days of the Disney TV show, sang her summer hit "We Can't Stop" in a tight leotard, thrusting out her tongue and waving her microphone near her crotch.
She then stripped down to what appeared to be her underwear and remained on the stage, gyrating her hips and using a large foam hand as a sex prop, for a raunchy performance of "Blurred Lines" along with singer Robin Thicke.
Lady Gaga opened the show with her new single "Applause," and changed into outlandish costumes before ending in a bikini of giant seashells which she wore for the rest of the night.
