Last night stars came out for one of the hottest annual events of the season, the MTV Video Music Awards.

With a scintillating Michael Jackson tribute, hip shaking Beyoncé performance, and a requisite Kanye outburst, it was certainly an entertaining show. Let’s take a look at how the stars flossed on the carpet:

Beyonce MTV Video music Awards

The ever classy Diva Beyonce looked ravishing in a red mini dress with ruffles outlining her shoulder and neckline. Large silver earrings, stacked diamond bangles, and pointy toed satin pumps completed the simple look. While the idea and design of the dress are quite hot, something about the pull of the mini makes me go hmm…perhaps a quick trip to the tailor could have afforded a more forgiving thus flattering fit…

Solange Knowles Video Music Awards

Younger sister Solange Knowles looked delightfully sophisticated in a one shoulder Armand Basi One black dress with dramatic shoulder and hem details. Solange’s dress speaks to her fun personality, and everything from her unique look to her bold silver earrings, platform pumps, understated clutch, and neon manicure were hot!

Alicia Keys MTV Video Music Awards

Alicia Keys wore black as well, glittering in a black and silver sequined Dolce & Gabbana shift topped off with strappy sandals. Alicia tends to go for grecian gowns in these situations, so I appreciate her switching it up a bit and going for something more youthful and event appropriate. Also, love how her black and silver bangles and large hoops complement her dress.

Keri Hilson MTV Video Music Awards

Keri Hilson offered her interpretation of a chic black red carpet look with a plunging zip front jumpsuit with white embellished shoulder details. While I don’t *love* the onesie, Keri manages to pull it off, making the outfit hot with the help of large earrings, a slick hairstyle, and black accessories.


Jennifer Lopez wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 champagne dress, accessorizing the unique piece with Christian Louboutin peep toe ankle boots with a print stiletto heel. Marc Jacobs is a design genius, but I think this dress could have done without the velvet sleeves and neck tie, shining instead as a strapless stunner. That aside, the look gets an A for originality, and J. Lo’s smouldering makeup and withering stare can make anything hot!


Adrienne Baillon went for cute in a long sleeve yellow and pink print dress with silver necklaces, glittering bracelets, and roomy suede boots. I’m a sucker for yellow, so I adore her dress, but hmm…I think a pair of platform pumps would have accentuated her gams a bit more and added instead of detracted from her overall appearance.


Dapper Diddy stunted in a black suit with white piping, fleshed out with a black shirt and white tie. Guys, if you ever need suggestions on how to switch up your typical suit, look to Diddy. He looks simple, yet distinctly hot.

Kanye West Amber Rose MTV Video Music Awards

Lastly, headline making couple Kanye West and Amber Rose showed up rocking some of their signatures– spandex and heels for Amber, and a bottle of Hennessy for Kanye West. While the attractive duo looked…predictable for the casual awards show, all was overshadowed by Kanye’s questionable on stage antics. A fun somewhat fashionable prop loses its luster when the wearer doesn’t quite know how to handle it in public…hmm…

What do you think Bombshells?
