The 2011 MTV VMAs brought us shimmering new jewelry trends including big blingy cocktail rings, cuffs, bangles, silver mini dresses – and let’s not forget the little gem that gave Beyonce an extra sparkle!
The MTV Video Music Awards aired Sunday night and while there were no shocking interruptions this year, we were all picking our jaws up off the ground to see that Beyonce had one accessory a bit more precious than her cocktail ring – her baby bump!
While she undoubtedly glowed with baby bliss, Beyonce showed the world she’s still a diva with an outstanding display of shimmering Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including long diamond dangle earrings, a gorgeous emerald and diamond cocktail ring and a breathtaking cuff bracelet decked with diamonds and jade that wrapped around a good part of her wrist.
Video of the Year winner Katy Perry – with bubblegum pink hair – also sparkled with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. She kept it simple with a bracelet, cocktail ring, and stud earrings, while her dress was an intricately elegant Atelier Versace number.
For her first ensemble, VMA Pre-Show Co-Host Selena Gomez went for the goth look with a Julien Macdonald dress, but when it came to jewelry, she sparkled like a princess wearing a gold Ofira cuff and black dangle earrings. She shimmered in a silver sequin mini for her second look of the night and kept the bling to a sparkly pair of chandelier earrings.
Newlywed Kim Kardashian didn’t have hubby Kris at her arm, but instead wrapped it with a gorgeous cuff and Lorraine Schwartz sapphire earrings – and of course, that engagement ring! Victoria Justice rocked the black carpet with a silver sequin dress by Theia and accompanied it with bangles and hoop earrings by Philip Press and 88 by Sandy Simonian.
Demi Lovato brought ‘bombshell’ to a whole new level in the ensemble she rocked Sunday night. Her gemstone-embellished silver dress by Mandalay was accessorized with eye-catching jewels ’round her wrist and fingers.
While all the other gals walked the black carpet in silver sequin minis, Maria Menounos brightened up the scene with a green Amanda Wakeley dress that she paired with twinkling diamond studs and a gold cuff.
Singer JoJo added some sparkle to her black dress with dangle earrings and statement ring by Elodie K. and one by Philip Press and a Soffer Ari cuff.
The ever-classic Adele sang beautifully in her on-stage performance, but we think her Harry Winston diamond earrings might have stole the show!
…And then there was Nicki Minaj.
The ladies at the VMAs sparkled against the black carpet in their metallic minis, but it was the shimmering jewelry that had us captivated – from blingy cuffs to colorful statement-making cocktail rings, we are definitely looking forward seeing more of these trendsetting sparklers.
