Hot! or Hmm…: The 2011 28th Annual MTV Video Music Awards

The 28th Annual MTV Music Awards taped last night at Nokia Theatre in LA. From groundbreaking announcements to spectacular performances, the night certainly packed a punch.

Let’s take a look at the red carpet style, shall we?

A positively radiant Beyonce announced she was pregnant (!!!!) , thus definitively stealing the show. To bless her new arrival, she slipped on a tummy skimming blood orange Lanvin gown, accented no doubt by Lorraine Schwartz jewels. She accessorized her simple yet glam dress with dangling earrings and an “I’m a Mommy!” smile. Congrats, Beyonce, you look hot!

Kelly Rowland went for short and saucy in a black Falguni & Shane Peacock cocktail uplifted by gold embroidery and a feathered skirt. Peep toe spiked Christian Louboutin heels and a black clutch completed her look. I can’t say much about her hair (Danielle?), but she certainly looks piping hot from the neck down;) Work it gworl!

Colombiana star Zoe Saldana also opted for black, working a Barbari Bui Fall 2011 dress with Balenciaga snake skin heels. I love how dangerously low cut the v-neck is, and the leather and metal accents are dope! That said, this look is a bit luke warm at best for me. It seems a little safe for the MTV VMA’s! Cute shoes, though.

Kim Kardashian appeared fresh off her honeymoon in a sparkly silver halter Oriett Domenech gown, showing off her ample decolletage. She certainly looks like a Bombshell in this figure hugging creation. Hot!

Ne-Yo chilled backstage before his electric performance in a gold speckled v-neck brown sweater, anchored by chocolate sneaks and his signature fedora. I’m usually wary of brown people in all brown, but the varying tones look great on him. And that sweater? Hot!

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa posed for the cameras with Amber in an ivory playsuit and Wiz in a simple tank and light bronze jeans. Amber looks bodacious, though a pop of lip color would have made this look just a wee bit more interesting. Wiz has developed his own signature laid back style. Hey, it works.

Lastly, best hip-hop video winner Nicki Minaj seemingly threw on everything but the kitchen sink to twirl at the annual celebration. There are no words, but hmm….
Who were your faves?
