Jersey Shore meatheads met Gaga’s meat couture at the 2010 VMA Awards last night. And while the jewelry trends weren’t as bodacious as the Lady’s fashion choices – there were some highlights worth sharing.
First – the Franc Ferdinand-designed meat dress. Not even Cher in her iconic black sequined unitard could upstage this Peta-angering Gaga statement. Thoughts?
I’ve always been a ‘black-diamond Betty’ – and any MTV event is the perfect time for the dark side to shine.
Hoops have been a mainstay on these less formal red carpet events – and the VMA white carpet was no exception.
And my favorite overall look went to the lovely Selena Gomez – in a Reem Acra silver frock (love the pockets!) with blue gemstone detail and Baccarat jewelry, including what look like sapphire drop earrings and a chunky sapphire cocktail ring. Something about the silver and blue really works, right?.
And now for a little non-jewelry VMA musing. While I LOVE that Gaga is pushing buttons with her fashion choices – I kinda miss that tried and true VMA train wreck from yesteryear. There’s no Courtney Love faux pas to count on or some drunken grunge dude climbing the sets. The EARNEST, barefooted Taylor Swift/Kanye West ‘controversy’ just isn’t working for me.
Maybe I’m just cranky that the runway looks from Fashion Week so far aren’t giving me any gawk-worthy jewelry to crow about. But we’re only half-way through…stay tuned.
