VMA Fashions, In my Humble Opinion

Aug 29, 2011

For the most part I feel like I am way too old to be watching the VMA’S. I remember a time when I looked forward to them so much, now I pretty much just tune in to see the fashions. My favorite part was Beyonce’s adorable announcement that she was pregnant! They are going to have one gorgeous talented baby! Here are a few of my best and worst dressed picks.



Probably my favorite look of the night. She looks amazing in orange and I love the one-shoulder dress.

Zoe Saldana

I read somewhere that Rachel Zoe dresses her which explains why she always looks amazing. This dress fit her perfect and I thought it was a fun look for the awards.

Katie Holmes

Love the dress not too sure how I feel about the shoes. Katie has been looking great lately though, but on the super skinny side.


Miley Cyrus

This looks like something an 80 year old would wear. Not digging the dress and jewelry together. The dress is just way too busy.

Selena Gomez

I just don’t get this outfit. I think Selena is so cute and this look just dates her. It reminds me of something a vampire would wear.

Katy Perry

I have no words for this outfit just bad.


Britney Spears

I am not a huge fan of this look but I don’t exactly hate it either. I think the shoes are the worst part, the shorts may may been cute with high heeled pumps. I miss the days when Britney was at her peak. I think she needs a stylist!

Happy Monday! Who did you love last night?

  5. Carly says:

    I just felt old watching the show, I didn't know who half the people were!

  6. I loved Beyonce's performance -especially her baby announcement. I LOVE Zoe Saldana -saw her on Chelsey Lately and really love her personality.

    Brandon watched the VMAs with me & his two comments pertaining to fashion were, "Nikki Minaj looks like 'Hello Kitty'" and "Why does Katy Perry have a box on her head?"

    Haha, I have to agree!

  7. Totally agree with all of our opinions. And I felt so old too watching. Brit needs a stylist in a major way.

  9. LOVED Beyonce, she was working it in that gown and in a bedazzled blazer! Miley looked like a hot mess.

  10. Love love love Beyonce! She just stole the whole show! I feel you on feeling to old. I didn't know anyone.

  11. The fashion is always the best part! I agree with you Beyonce looked great in orange! It makes me want to dress in orange for the next wedding/event I attend, a great summer/fall color!

    Jay-Z's reaction. It was priceless! Katie Holmes looked great!

  19. I love the orange on Beyonce, and I have to admit, Katie Perry does put a smile on my face. Ha…

  20. I totally agree with all of your choices. Beyonce was definitely my fave for the night (and completely stole the show with her news), and I also loved Katie Holmes' dress.

  21. I completely agree!! Those worst dressed are the worst!!!


  22. Amen and holla at your girl to Britney needing a stylist…she should hire Rachel Zoe because if that is how Zoe always looks so fab, it would be worth every stinkin' penny!!! And Beyonce was absolutely *stunning*…LOVE that they are finally having a little bundle of joy! (c:
