While not the Oscar’s, Emmy’s or even the Tony’s, Mtv’s Video Music Awards has always been known for the fashion, in addition to the hijinks.
This year, in addition to the outlandish outfits, the drama, and a potential hurricane, the stars of music and movies came out with a myriad of outfits.
Some of our commendations go to Gwen Stefani who wore an ornate leopard print dress, not to be outdone by Lindsay Lohan who also wore some sort of cat print dress, Snoop Dogg who made pimping easier than it looks bu wearing a white suit embellished with a blue paisley lapel and a royal blue (or was it navy?) hankerchief, Nick Lahey who went all black for this event and looked uncomfortably happy with wife in tow, Jay-Z who had a my-oh-my dark blue seer sucker suit thing happening with the Robert Deniro inspired matching shirt and tie, and if Jay-Z is around you know girlfriend Beyonce couldn’t be trumped by Marcy’s own. She looked especially fetching in a shimmering silver quasi spaghetti strapped dress. Jamie Foxx with a bottle of Aquafina in tow arrived at the red carpet with a shirt that had Versace written all over it (didn’t quite get who was the actual designer). The Black Eyed Peas decided to buck all fashion trends and wear red, yellow, black and brown all in some sort of variation. (loved the dress on Fergie though) Usher played up his fashion strength by arriving in an off-white shirt offset with a baby blue blazer. Orlando Bloom decided to be sexier than ever in grey suit and shirt that accentuated every muscle cut on his frame. Common displayed fashion sense wearing a gorgeous brown/orange suit with burberry inspired vest. Somebody forgot to send the memo to certain rappers that it’s A-OK to do the suit and tie thing.
All in all it was a night where music and fashion took center stage.
