The Best Dressed Stars Of The VMAS

The MTV Video Music Awards took place last night in America, with all of the biggest names in the music business making an appearance at the star-studded event. The show is due to air in the UK tonight at 9pm on MTV. Not only can viewers look forward to seeing who wins what awards, some of the music industries biggest names took part in a Britney Spears tribute, as well as a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse. But for those of you who can’t wait here is a sneaky peak at some of last nights best dressed stars…

Demi Lovato wore a silver bejeweled mini dress by Mandalay accompanied with matching shoes from Christian Louboutin. Her long glossy hair finished off the glamourous look. It was great to see Demi looking amazing and confident last night, in a dress that flaunted her fantastic curves. Her outfit showed the world that she is beating her eating disorder and proud of her fabulous natural figure.

Girl of the night Britney Spears managed to impress in a black sequined Moschino mini dress. The only thing we aren't a fan off with this look are the black patent leather boots, but other than that Britney looked amazing and back to her best.

Selena Gomez showed the world that the Disney star is all grown-up wearing a risque black lace dress by British designer Julien Macdonald. She teamed up the look with gold heels, a clutch and an elegant tied-up hair do. Selena showed the other stars how to stand-out on the night with a sophisticated yet sexy vamped-up look.

Controversial singer Rebecca Black showed she can look every part the star wearing black satin hot-pants, a lace top and a matching black satin blazer. Rebecca accessorized the outfit well with dusky grey and black jewellery and shoes, whilst keeping her glossy dark hair simple.

Adele last night proved that women of any size can look stunning, going for a glamorous 60's inspired look. The simple yet flattering dress is jazzed up by her bouffant hair.

Justin Bieber proved that it wasn't just the women who dressed to impress last night, looking stylish in red jeans, a black top and black YSL blazer. He teamed the look with gold jewellery, leopard print trainers and some thin-framed glasses.

Alfred Angelo Designs Disney Princess Wedding Dress Collection

Renowned wedding dress designer Alfred Angelo is bringing every girl’s childhood dream to life, with his new collection of Disney princess bridal gowns- Fairy Tale Weddings. Disney have teamed up with Angelo to create a unique, and stunning collection of dresses inspired by the most popular Disney princesses. The wedding dresses are available in 65 stores across the UK and Ireland, priced at a respectable £599 to £1999. So lets take a look at these amazing dresses…

#201- Ariel

This dress is heavily inspired by the sea, with intricate pearl and crystal beading. The tight-fitting, fish-tail style gown combines the look of Ariel as a mermaid, as well as the romantic look she wore when she got married.

#202- Jasmine

The shimmering satin, ruched bodice, jeweled neckline and bead encrusted halter neck straps, make this gown feel exotic like princess Jasmine. The slim goddess fit of the dress, is a sexy yet sophisticated look, ideal for summer weddings.

#203- Sleeping Beauty

Aurora’s dress is the most feminine and romantic of the collection with layers of gossamer tulle, creating the look of a rose petal skirt. A rose like flower is also on the one strap, along with lace and crystal beads.

#204- Tiana

Tiana, the newest of the Disney princesses dress is a one-shouldered taffeta ballgown. The dress has a very dramatic and expensive look, with beaded flowers and metallic embroidery.

#205- Cinderella

Cinderella’s ball gown is the most traditional of the collection of dresses. The glitter netting over taffeta shimmers just like Cinderlla’s glass slippers. The criss-cross bodice, with a sweetheart neckline adds a romantic, ballerina feel to this dress. Further beading and rhinestones on the bodice adds the final touch of shimmer to this sparkling sensation.

#206- Belle

The Belle dress stands out from the others with the addition of the detachable shrug, replicating that of Belle’s famous ball gown. The satin corset includes gold metallic embroidery, giving the dress a luxurious feel. The draped net skirt, continues the luxurious and grandeur feel of the dress.

#206- Snow White

The Snow White gown reflects the nature loving princess. The is bodice covered in blossom detail, and continues as it is scattered across the skirt. A satin sash and back bow add a girl elegance to the dress. For a closer look at the collection what the promotional video below…

Victoria Beckham’s New Line & Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection

Despite being heavily pregnant Victoria Beckham has been busy working on producing her second clothing line, ‘Victoria’ by Victoria Beckham. Although, the clothing will not be cheap, it will be more affordable than her current collection which sells for over £1000 for an item.

The new line will start with a collection of dresses for Spring/Summer 2012, consisting of a more ‘girly’ and ‘softer’ style to the clothing on her Victoria Beckham Line, which stars such as Eva Longoria and Nicole Scherzinger are frequently seen wearing.

It’s exciting news that Victoria is creating a second line, and although £300 may still be a lot for a dress compared to most high-street stores, with some saving (why not start now ready for the spring launch) the possibility of owning a Victoria Beckham design is perhaps achievable for us ‘ordinary’ folk.

I’m looking forward to getting a look at the designs, and will be sure to write a new post with my verdict and details of stocklists.

But for now lets have a look at some designs from her Autumn/Winter 2011 Victoria Beckham collection…

Dip-Dye Hair

The new dip-dye hair colour sensation is a celebrity favourite this summer. The style starts with dark roots, fading in to medium tones, with lighter tips. The gradual blend of colour makes this hairstyle look effortless and natural, yet right on trend. Being subtle is the key with this style, to avoid the look of badly grown out roots!

Here are some star’s looking great sporting the dip-dye look:

Lily Aldridge

Ashlee Tisdale

Rachel Bilson
