Putting the "V" in VMA

Last night I was one of the millions of viewers who tuned in to watch the 2011 VMA's. I was left dazed and confused at the overextended monologue by Lady Gaga's alter ego, Jo Calderone. (Kudos to the make-up artist who did a fantastic job with the visual transformation.) 

Far removed from the "monster mania", I grew impatient with the opening act as I awaited a performance from Momma Monster and changed the channel only to miss her tumble off the beer drenched piano. (I got to watch the performance on Youtube less than 15 minutes later).  No matter what anyone has to say about her antics, Lady Gaga is an amazing singer, musician and performer.

News of Beyoncé announcing she was expecting on the VMA black carpet blew up the entertainment blogs and had everyone buzzing.  Pre-show photos were later confirmed after her "Love on Top" performance when she dropped the mic, opened her sequin studded blazer and massaged a very-present baby bump.  She was glowing!  Her elation was infectious as her auric field radiated throughout the Nokia Theare and permeated television screens around the world.

She wore a gorgeous bright orange, one-shouldered Lanvin Fall 2011 gown accented with emerald and diamond accessories.  Aside from the bright hue, it was a far cry from her usual body hugging, skin baring outfits like the mini-dress she wore at a prior VMA show.

"Mommy-to-Bey" is definitely a trendsetter.  Boob-bearing frocks were all the rage last night, a look Beyoncé donned at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

Sone of the "Deep-V" vixens included Kelly Rowland (former Destiny's Child sidekick and Beyoncé's bff) and reality TV's T&A star Kim Kardashian.

I generally prefer to conceal the twins but after seeing these hot plunging necklines, I am considering adding a peak-a-boo piece to my closet.

Très Chaud!
