The morning after the MTV Video Music Awards, lets recap. The red carpet was sparkling with many stars opting for silver metallic dresses. Favorites rockin the trend were Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, and Kristen Cavallari. Speaking of rockers, Pink stormed in on a fire truck with husband Carey Hart minutes after Shakira walked the carpet wearing the same leather studded mini dress. All was well, and as the show moved inside, the opening tribute to the late Michael Jackson was incredible. Janet’s dance sequence while performing “Scream” evoked the sentiments of a sister saddened by loss, but empowered through their passion for music and dance. Did anyone catch Lauri Ann Gibson and Cris Judd dancing? K-Fed was busy working out.
Not to be detered by a belligerent Kanye West interrupting her acceptance speech for Best Female in a Video, Taylor Swift delivered a beautiful performance of “You Belong With Me.” The night belonged to the ladies, Beyonce proves again that she is the baddest lady in the game and her performance of “Single Ladies” was on point. Pink performed “Sober” with a heart shaped pastie without stepping one toe on the stage. Only Pink can make swinging from a trapeze look effortless. Lady Gaga brought her aggressive avant garde persona to the stage with “Paparazzi” sure it was shocking, but hey, it’s entertainment.
As we were looking at the fashion last night it was clear that metallics dresses were everywhere, loved the color choices from Beyonce and Amerie, and the little black dresses were well played with accessories and shoes. Just a few comments, the DJ AM tribute from Kid Cudi, Wale, and UCB should have been on the main stage and where was Rhianna? Congrats to Matt and Kim for Breakthrough Video. Here’s our roundup of some of the best looks of the night, and a few of the worst for good measure.
