Britney Spears was the most talked about artist at the 2008 Video Music Awards. Thanks to her single, “Piece of Me“, Britney won her first ever 3 VMA’s after being nominated 17 times. Personally the best highlights were Rihanna and T.I’s “Live Your Life” performance and Kanye West’s new song, “Love Lockdown.”
Many style trends were show all over the VMA red carpet. My best dressed picks went to Jordin Sparks, Ciara, and Rihanna. These three definitely own the red carpet…
Best dressed couples were Kobe & Vanessa Bryant plus T.I & Tiny. Vanessa was decked out in Gucci head to toe while Tiny rock a sequin Herve Leger dress. Kobe and T.I both complimented their women with sharp suit jackets.
Melanie Brown kept her red carpet look simple in silver sequin dress and matching Christian Louboutin pumps.
White collar shirts were the ideal look for Chris Brown and LL Cool J. These two basically looked alike in their outfits, huh?
Solange Knowles and Tocarra took fashion risks. Solange wore a tiered Moschino mini-dress and her ever present Fendi clutch while Tocarra went for a biker chick look. However compared to her Fashion Rocks look, Solange looked great! Tocarra decided to focus the attention off her liquid leather leggings to her message tee “Big & Fabulous.”
Nicole Scherzinger and the Dolls The Pussycat Dolls finally look together instead of their notorious five different looks they’re known to do over and over again.
All in all the awards ceremony wasn’t as excited as the hype was. There was no surprises expect that Jordin Sparks/Jonas Brothers/purity ring drama.
Anyone else disappointed that Christina Aguilera lip-synch her new single, “Keeps Gettin’ Better”? I did like how she remixed “Genie In A Bottle.”
