VMA Fashion

My plans for getting into bed early Sunday night were cut short when I was reminded that the VMA's were airing. The resulting under-eye circles and lackluster skin were well worth the sacrifice.I love awards shows....I do....but mostly what I love is the Red Carpet arrivals before hand. 

So let's just jump straight into the fashion can we? 

Beyoncé photographed on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Announcing you're preggers with Jay-Z's babmbino on the VMA's....#winning.
Also winning? The color and cut of that dress and those amazeball danglers! In Love with Beyonce's look.

One of the fiercest looks of the night....bombshell waves, lace-up booties and lace overlay dress.....Katie hits every trend....and nails it.

I'm fairly certain I have every item Justin's sporting in my closet....minues the shoes....those are in Hugh Hefner's closet.

Deena Cortese of MTV's 'Jersey Shore' photographed on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
Lord have mercy....someone put her back inside the skittles wrapper. 

Is it just me or does Taylor Lautner makes men's fashion infinitely less boring and 10,000 shades of spicier? Loving the henley paired with fitted blazer.

Zoe Saldana is one of my fashion favs. Homegirl rarely misses a step.The deep V and zipper detail paired with the striped wedges are phenom. Way to bring the sexy to the show Z.

Everything about this says fresh-face and etheral. Looks like she could step off the red carpet and into a covergirl commercial. One of my top picks for the night. What can I say...I'm a big fan of anything bedazzled.

I didn't even know Jo Jo was still on the music scene. Apparently she is....however wearing trash-bag saddle-bag dresses and a constipated look on her face won't keep her there for long.

Jenni 'JWOWW' Farley of MTV's 'Jersey Shore' photographed on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
No doubt lots of electrical tape was used in pulling off this little number but I have to applaud JWOW for a truly wow-worthy look and equally glam makeup.

Bonnie McKee photographed on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
Someone please take the Forever 21 Mastercard away from her. From the camel toe, to the muffin top to the saran-wrap bustier....it's just all bad.

Ashley Rickards of MTV's 'Awkward.' photographed on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
Though Ashley Rickard is a newbie to MTV, One Tree Hill fans will recognize her as Brooke's troublesome foster child. And I think she did a great job in her emergence on the red carpet with this feathery eye-catching number. I have faith her fashion sense will only go up from here.

Who was a fashion Hit Or Miss for you?

I'll leave you with my absolute favorite moment from the VMA's. I've watched this no less than 20 times. Officially my new favorite song.

I love how I don't know who about 5 of those people even were, but am totally obsessed in both good and bad ways with their clothes!

Beyonce owned the show with that moment! (although Adele made me cry... and I dont even relate to that heartwrencher of a song she sang)

I'm totally loving the show awkward, so it's star was the red carpet showstopper for me!


Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I had no idea who some of those people were. I had no idea that JoJo was making music either.

Marian said...

I can't believe that last girl is from One tree Hill. I totally remember her and she looks so mature now!! Makes me feel old;) My favorite part was Beyonce as well!! She can never do wrong in my book

Virginia Belle said...

I agree, Beyonce and Katie had the best looks! Beyonce definitely stole the show!

Lauren Nicole said...

Yeah, I pretty much agree with every single one of these.

Especially Taylor Lautner. The guy is good looking, talented, and knows how to dress. Hell, he could make a paper bag look good.

I totally got chills watching this on tv. You can see how happy Beyonce is! That is going to be one spoiled child!!:)

jayme said...

First, I love Adele. Seriously amazeballs.
Second, jwow's body is rockin. Even if it looks trashy, I'd sport it too.
Third, I'm so jealous of that kid in beyonces belly. Just born into the coolest parents ever!
XO love

Beyonce ROCKED the show. Seriously in my next life I want a voice like Carrie and moves like Beyonce.

hahahah that Skittles bag comment killed me!! Maybe she is the jackpot at the end of the rainbow? Eww hopefully not.

I thought Katie trumped everyone. I want her shoes!!

Oh and it mad me mad the jersey shore was there (but I am not really a fan of the show in general). I was like hmm so is that what it takes to get to the vma's? Be as skanky and white trash as possible?! haha.

Lindsey said...

I didn't get to watch the end of the show and I forgot it was on so I missed the red carpet ... booo. But from what I've seen so far, Beyonce is my winner for the night. Deana? I mean ... just gross. That outfit is atrocious.

Abby said...

jessica // union shore said...

katie and beyonce were hands down my faves!

JET @ Moscato Villa said...

I didn't even watch it this year! BUT I agree with all your fashion commentary. J.Bieber always looks like a chick to me. He's very girly. And I can't believe Beyonce is preggers! What will they name it?! xo- Jet

Young and Fabulous said...

I am so excited to watch the VMAs!! Stupid power outage stopped me from watching!

beyonce? GORGEOUS

Jo-Jo WHO?? last I saw her was in that mermaid movie!

I have to agree Zoe Saldana is GORGEOUS. Even in her avatar outfit she was stunning!

i heard a lot about selena gomez's outfit and how it was racy...i have to go google that right now!!


Katie said...

I shouldn't have read this entire post since I tivod theVMA's and haven't watched it yet, but I couldn't stay away from your blog.. missed it so much while we were away haha

xoxo lovahh bee

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

danggg that is that girl from OTH. I never would've recognized her. She looks different or something. and I LOVED Beyonce's dress! My dad kept calling her "Fiance" yesterday, haha. I was like Dad, it's with a "B"!!!!

choose to be happy blog said...

Beyonce looked perfect. Her performance was amazing. And really the announcement that she is preg, was so perfect. I was cheering. Alone. In my apartment.

Katie holmes. Loved her look! I heard on tv someone say they didn’t like her shoes, I loved them!

The biebs. Is interesting. But I still have bieb fev. And loved when selena interviewed him and called him babe.

I was so excited when I saw you mentioned the girl from awkward. I thought I was the only one that watched that show. I am LOVING it!

Megan said...

Ahhhh, yay! I love this post! I didn't watch them, so I always love a fashion recap!!
