On Sunday, August 28th MTV hosted the 2011 Video Music Awards at the Nokia Theater in LA.  Whenever you put chart topping musicians together under one roof there will always be a parade of fashion to discuss.  This year’s award show did not disappoint.

I have to start with Nicki Minaj. The hip hop and R&B recording artist looked like she was attacked by stuffed animals and the animals won managing to subdue her.  Then to add insult to injury she borrowed the Tin Man’s costume from The Wizard Of Oz.

Lady Gaga who normally grabs my attention and I must know who she is wearing did a 360 degree turn around dressing as Jo Calderone in a Brooks Brother black suit redefining the menswear trend.  She wore a white tee and stayed in character all evening.

Miley Cyrus looked like she borrowed a dress from her Mom’s closet.  Though I liked the low back the long-sleeved dress by Roberto Cavalli was too mature for the 18 year old actress.  Miley added Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Azzedine Alaia heels.

Now let us move onto the Best Dressed.  Top pick of the night goes to Beyonce who shocked us with her baby bump worn under an orange Lanvin gown worn with Rene Caovilla platforms and platinum colored gems by Lorraine Schwartz.  She looked glowing and every bit the superstar she is.  Beyonce later performed in a purple sequin Dolce & Gabbana jacket and black pants.

I also have to give a shout out to Selena Gomez.  The 19 year old Disney star stunned in a black asymmetric lace Julien McDonald gown with a high neckline. She accessorized with champagne Brian Atwood pumps and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Also making the list is Victoria Justice.  She looked sexy dressed in a short silver sequin Theia dress with Elie Tahari clutch and jewelry by Phillip Press and 88 by Sandy Simonian.

Who should be added to this list?  Who wins your vote for Best Dressed?  Worst Dressed?
