My Best Dressed: The VMAs 2011

Yay!  Another Award Ceremony!  And another reason for another post in the My Best Dressed series.  The highlight of the VMAs was, of course, Beyonce's happy news!  Congratulations to her and Jay-Z!  Their baby is going to be one very lucky little thing :)

Beyonce's memorable moment was about the only memorable things about the VMAs however, the fashion was certainly a bit dud in my opinion.  There were a few outfits that caught my eye though...

Louise Roe in Tibi

I absolutely love this style of gown, especially the pleated taupe skirt part.  I actually have a very similar skirt, from topshop, which you can see me wearing on Lucy's blog... it's a shame I don't quite look like Louise wearing it!  This style of dress reminds me of the Jason Wu and Naeen Khan gowns I've featured in earlier My Best Dressed posts, the floaty maxi skirt just looks fab contrasted against a beautifully embellished top.  With that fabulous tan and coral nails Louise was by far my best dressed on the night.

Beyonce in Lanvin

The moment Beyonce revealed her 'surprise', and boy did she reveal it in perfect fashion!  Absolutely glowing in this stunning bright orange gown with classic drapes, we just know B is going to do pregnancy in style.  Can't wait!

Kelly Rowland in Falguni & Shane Peacock

Despite the first thing to catch the eye being the unfortunately placed feather detail, Kelly looked flawless in this dramatic black and gold embroidered number, which had a plunging neckline big enough to balance out that massive bunch of feathers.  Kelly paired this dress with the most amazing Louboutin shoes, good choice!

Katie Holmes in Azzedine Alaia

First of all, Katie looks so suits the long wavy hair over that short middle-aged crop, I've got some serious hair envy right now!  I love both the dress and and boots, and again I want!  I could actually imagine many a fashion blogger in a similar outfit...  But somehow, together, they weren't quite suited for an awards ceremony.  Still, the outfit looked fab, and Katie looked tonnes younger.
