Glam Slam: All The VMA Style Action!
First Published: August 29, 2011 1:38 PM EDT Credit: WireImage
LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Last year at the MTV VMAs we got the meat dress….this year, we got Lady Gaga’s male alter ego Jo Calderone, who wore a simple black Dior jacket, white tee and black Brooks Brothers pants all night.
So it was a bit of a style letdown for me without the outrageous Gaga to shake things up.
Here’s how it all breaks down:
LOOKING GREAT BEYONCE Congrats!!!!! Will there ever be a more glamorous mommy-to-be than Beyonce? The mega-star showed off her mini bump first in a loose orange silk one-shouldered Lanvin gown and then at the end of performing her song “Love on Top” while decked out in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana, she opened her purple sequined jacket and rubbed her belly. Such a cute moment- so happy for her and Jay-Z!
KELLY ROWLAND Beyonce’s fellow Destiny’s Child member also looked amazing in a Falguni & Shane Peacock black-and-gold mini adorned with feathers and leather! She also rocked sexy studded Christian Louboutins. Love her look!
ZOE SALDANA Also went with a short dress looking gorgeous, as usual, in a black embellished mini with plunging neckline. Both the dress, which showed off her long, lean legs, and the shoes are by French designer Barbara Bui from the Fall 2011 Collection.
BRITNEY SPEARS The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Honoree kept things simple and looked cute in a black sequined Moschino jumper, which she paired with peep-toe black booties.
PREDICTIBLY WILD NICKI MINAJ Where does one begin with this outfit? The crazy cotton candy wig, the face mask, the ice cream cone necklace, the mirrors on her dress, the crazy stuffed animal thingee? “Tokyo inspires this outfit,” Nicki told us. “Harajuku is something I have been absorbing for a very long time.” She gave Gaga some competition in the over-the-top outfits department and she succeeded in a very cheeky way. She kept things fun and interesting.
KATY PERRY “I just felt like being colorful and fun and with me, I am okay with self deprecation,” Katy Perry told us last night. “That was the inspiration for tonight… to have a laugh.” And Katy succeeded with her colorful series of outfits. The “Video of the Year” winner wore four different ensembles throughout the evening, each more colorful than the last! The pink hair, the Tom Ford purple gown with lace top, the Atelier Versace blue geisha mini with matching parasol, the Dior yellow cube hat…I think she represented every color in the rainbow! She always keeps us guessing and that’s why we love her.
MILEY CYRUS “I didn’t know if it was too, like, fancy-dancy for the VMAs but it’s all about, you know, being as wild as you want to be,” Miley told us. Grrr! In a long-sleeved long gown that was part animal print, part floral print, this Roberto Cavalli was all over the place and seemed too mature for the young star.
THE ‘JERSEY SHORE’ LADIES Enough said.
