VMA Fashion Roundup

When Hurricane Irene slams New York it becomes increasingly difficult to watch the MTV VMA’s. Like many, a loss of power meant missing Lady Gaga dressed in drag, Beyoncé’s baby bump, and the surprise Jay-Z and Kanye West performance. Without spoiling it for those who will watch it on MTV.com, let’s highlight the night’s best and worst fashion moments.

Beyoncé shows off her baby bump with a fiery orange Lanvin sheath from the Fall 2011 collection.
When it was time to perform, Beyoncé changed into a purple-sequined Dolce & Gabbana tux (again showing off her baby bump).
Adele keeps it classy in a Barbara Tfank midi-length dress (She must have gotten the midi memo from the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar).

 

Katy Perry in head-to-toe Dior topped off with cotton-candy locks.

 

Since outfit changes were a common theme throughout the night, Katy Perry hopped on board the hat bandwagon with a Rubik's Cube headpiece.
Kanye West pays homage to the “Canadian Tuxedo” with double denim Balmain style.
Miley Cyrus ages herself with this Roberto Cavalli floor-length number. May we advise picking a more age appropriate dress in the future.
Actress Zoe Saldana shows off her legs in a mini black shift by Barbara Sui.
Lady Gaga fails to amaze dressed as Jo Calderone…we get it, you want to make a statement.
Nicki Minaj raids Lady Gaga’s closet creating a mismatched Japanimation themed ensemble.

 

Rolling Stone may have given Justin Bieber two thumbs down but how do you go wrong mixing a leopard, red, and black motif? Could it be the all-too-small women’s blazer paired with the dainty glasses frames?
The pop princess, Britney Spears, cleans up nicely in a zig-zag print Moschino romper, finishing the look off with open-toed patent-leather platform boots.
Newlywed Kim Kardashian shows off her infamous bottom in a form-fitting silver beaded gown with a sheer back panell, leaving us to ask, "What was she thinking?!"
What can you expect from Snooki? Boobs, boobs, and more boobs.
Snooki’s couterpart, JWoWW got the boob memo as well showing off her "purchases" dolled up in a plunging metallic minidress.
Deena Cortese poses as Rainbow Brite gone wrong.
Ne-Yo -- Real men shimmer in Prada.
Jessie J makes a cast and crutches look fashionable, jewel-encrusted head-to-boot.
And the winner for best dressed is… Selena Gomez in an exquisite lace Julien Macdonald gown, Brian Atwood pumps, and matching Judith Leiber clutch.

From Rubik’s Cubes to crutches, the VMA red carpet was a mash-up of the tasteful and tasteless.  Who are your picks for the best and worst of the 2011 VMAs?
