2011 MTV Video Music Awards Black Carpet Looks

2011 MTV Video Music Awards Black Carpet Looks

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are taping live now at Nokia Theatre in L.A.  There are so many wild and fun looks for the evening (can we say Nicki Minaj and Gaga!?), but I’ve compiled my personal Top Five ( + Bonus) hottest looks from the evening!

Zoe Saldana stepped out in a black Barbara Bui Fall 2011 tunic that she paired with Balenciaga snake-skin heels, a gold cuff by Ofira, and a Lanvin clutch.  The tweed tunic turned mini dress was embellished with gold and silver military-style details and leather panels.

Amber Rose kept it cute and casual in an ivory romper by Barilà, a Brazilian designer from Montreal, and gold platform pumps.  The rumor is that her dress was “ruined” before the show so she had to throw the romper on.  Hmmmm. Well, I think she looks perfectly adorable and the outfit seems pretty true to her typical red carpet style.

Kelly Rowland was stunning in a black and gold Falguni & Shane Peacock Fall 2011 dress with Christian Louboutin Lady Peep Spikes peep-toes. I’m typically not a fan of feathers, but the feathered skirt and leather harness-style detail wrapped around her waist really worked for her tonight.

Newlywed Kim Kardashian was glowing and voluptuous in a silver sequin halter gown with an open back by Kaufmanfranco. She finished the look with a matching sparkly cuff, statement earrings, and a statement ring.

Katy Perry went with a geisha style Atelier Versace Fall 2011 mini dress, embroidered with cherry blossom-shaped sequins and crystals on a baby blue sequined background.  Pink Jimmy Choo “Beak” sandals, a cherry blossom flower in her pink curly hair, and matching parasol completed this playful look. The entire outfit is very fun and very “Katy”!

***BONUS*** Congrats to Beyonce and Jay!  Bey was pretty, pregnant, and glowing in a bright orange, one-shoulder silk crepe cut-away gown from the Lanvin Fall 2011 collection. She completed the look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a side sweeping ponytail.

During an energetic performance later, Beyonce took a break from her signature sequin mini dressess and bodysuits and opted for a tailored white shirt and purple sequin Dolce & Gabbana jacket with wide black lapels from the Fall 2011 collection.  She paired the suit jacket with loose black trousers, also by D&G, and a stretchy black maternity belly band (that resembled a cumberbun).  King Bey completed the look with black diamond earrings and black heels.

  1. Kim Kardashian and Kelly Rowland are working it (and more) in their dresses! And Beyonce looks gorg, as usual. I didn’t get to see the awards, but I saw the clips of her (after her performance) asking everyone if they can “feel the love growing” inside of her. SO so cute!!!! Love her!!!!

    loooooooved beyonce last night! she was absolutely RADIATING!!!! the “glow” is so not a made-up concept!!

    kelly rowland has the best breast implants i’ve ever seen. so cute and perfect for her physique!

    lol, wiz khalifa looked like such a bum next to amber rose, lol.

    • yakini says:

      Yeah, Wiz did not look good yesterday…. and it was sad when he did not win for best new artist. how humiliating to be at the awards show, with his boo looking all good, and her ex winning awards and stuff. *smh* Poor thing.
      lol @ you commenting on Kelly’s implants. Do we know that for sure?

  7. toi says:

    I love Kelly’s shoes:).

    I like Beyonce for proudly showing off her bump, that makes me like her, LOL!

  8. Glamamom says:

    I didn’t get to watch 🙁 but this is one of my fave events bc it’s expected that the celebs will get a little creative. No picture of Nicky??

    I can’t stand Katy Perry but I don’t know why. I just think she’s a complete creation and there’s nothing authentic about her. It’s just a gimmick. And that outfit? SMH

    • yakini says:

      lmaooo @ your strong feelings for Katy. I have a few celebs who i have that same feeling for.
      Jill, Nicki really let me down last night. 🙁 The two fashionistas i was looking forward to seeing most were Nicki and Lady Gaga…. and both looked a hot mess. Gaga was dressed like a guy – the entire night, not just for one outfit. And Nicki just took it too far with the craziness. I mean, neither outfit are really worth sharing (lol).

  9. Usually i am not a fan of Beyonce but she looks radiant in her outfit…but perhaps it was due to her pregnancy! I love Zoe…always looks so classy and fun!
