The MTV Video Music Awards was held here in Los Angeles yesterday.
It was extremely hot, so they had to move the red carpet -- or, I should really say black carpet -- inside. There weren't a lot of showstopping looks (after all, it's not the Oscars), but nevertheless, let's have a quick VMAs fashion recap. :)
Beyonce -- She looked beautiful and absolutely glowing in her one-shouldered orange Lanvin dress. Dripping Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a side ponytail completed her flawless look.
And she's pregnant!!! :D
I am so so so happy for Beyonce.
It seems that this is the perfect time for her and Jay-Z to have a baby. She's had a very successful career and she's accomplished so much - I think she is going to be a great mom.
Zoe Saldana -- She is totally rocking this leather Barbara Bui dress!
She paired her LBD with Barbara Bui sandals, Lanvin clutch, and Ofira jewelry.
Adele -- I love love love Adele! :)
This custom Barbara Tfank dress is not something you'll see most celebrities wear, but this is so Adele. I love how she has her own unique style and I admire how she doesn't feel the need to conform to "Hollywood standards".
Her performance of Someone Like You was amazing! Wow!
She is so incredibly talented. And she has gorgeous hair! ;)
Demi Lovato -- Demi looked va-va-voom in her sparkling Mandalay mini-dress and Christian Louboutin shoes.
I don't really like the term "va-va-voom", but I think that's the best word to describe Demi's look, don't you think so?
Victoria Justice -- I think she looked pretty in this sparkly Theia mini-dress.
Although I gotta say that it feels like I've seen this look many times before.
Katie Holmes -- I love her outfit! I think her lace-up booties complement her Azzedine Alaia halter dress really well.
Maria Menounos -- I think she looked smashing in her Amanda Wakeley dress and Giusseppi Zanotti heels. She completed her look with a Lana Marks clutch and XIV Karats Beverly Hills jewelry.
Britney Spears -- Oh man, Britney! I love Britney Spears, but I wish she wore something else!
She was given a tribute, surely she could've worn something better than this sequined Moschino romper. And oh my, those black Gina shoes? So wrong. :(
Jojo -- Same... I wish she wore something else too! The upper part of this Marco Marco dress looks good, but the lower part kinda looks like a trash bag. :/
Kim Kardashian -- Mrs. Humphries wore a silver Kaufmanfranco dress.
Not her best... she's definitely looked better. And is it just me, or is there no newlywed glow in her?
Miley Cyrus -- She wore a Roberto Cavalli gown, Azzedine Alaia shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
Ummmm, not my favorite.
Selena Gomez -- The 19-year old wore a Julien MacDonald gown, Brian Atwood heels, Ofira jewelry, and a Judith Leiber clutch.
I think this is better than her Teen Choice Awards dress, but I'm not sure if I actually like it.
And she has this fascination with dresses that have a long back/short front thing going on... I don't get it. I think this dress would've looked better if it was just plain short.
Katy Perry -- She sported this Atelier Versace mini, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels as she walked down the black carpet with her husband Russell Brand.
She is known for her eccentric (but not overly-weird) looks, so there's really nothing much to say except this is so Katy Perry. ;)
Jessie J -- She wore a bedazzled corset, mirrored leggings, and crystal-adorned crutches.
I'm not sure what to say about this, but kudos to her for walking the black carpet with her crutches. :)
Nicki Minaj -- Amato Couture pink corset, Shojotomo Japan shorts, thigh highs and critter socks, Tsimori Chisato stockings, Onch Movement ice cream necklace, Fifi and Romeo plastic cuffs, and Duepunti rings.
And I think one Lady Gaga is enough, thank you very much.
Justin Bieber -- I just added him on this recap because I want that YSL brooch he's wearing, haha! ;)
Did you guys watch the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards? Whose look did you like and whose did you not like at all?
P.S. If you weren't able to catch it, I hope you can find Adele's performance on YouTube or something. And watch Beyonce's as well! She's amazing as always, and she showed her baby bump in the end -- so cute! :)
I wish all of you a great week ahead! :D
