MTV Video Music Awards aka Beyoncé's Baby Bump

Dear Readers,

Before I get to my summer recap, I had to do a quick post on the MTV VMAs.  Any music industry red carpet event is guaranteed to have a few how-outrageously-dressed-can-I-get-away-with looks.  This year, there were the usual loud and crazy "what is that?" outfits (think Nicki Minaj), most of which were fun and humorous rather than the more traditional scantily clad options.  Of course, Lady Gaga had run out of outrageous ideas, so she just showed up as a dude - Jo Calderone to be specific.  But even with all that going on, even with the Britney Spears Tribute, Beyoncé outdid them all...and looked fabulous (and normal) doing it...just because she was preggers!!

I also really liked Adele's '60s performance look (not so much her red carpet dress):

Other interesting (meaning I'm not 100% sure I like them or not) fashion choices of the night:

Selena Gomez in Julien MacDonald and Jenny Packham

fine feathered friends:

Ashley Rickards in BCBG
Kelly Rowland in Falguni and Shane Peacock 

And my favourite semi-crazy pick of the night, Katy Perry's Asian-inspired look:

Before I go, here are my favourite performances of the evening...enjoy!!




  1. I love Selena Gomez's second dress! beyonce looked really great too. I like how the dress hid the bump at first and then she pressed her hands against it like 'surprise!'

  2. Me too i love Selena's dress both black and the silver gray..im not sure of katy though...but you know outburst of inspiration is too much to handle.
