Beyonce Knowles In Lanvin – 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
Beyonce Knowles used the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards to announce that she is pregnant.

I couldn’t be happier for her. Its news I’ve been waiting to hear for a very long time.

The mother-to-be was beaming with joy and pride wearing a Lanvin Fall 2011 gown.

I love the bright orange colour of her one-shoulder silk crepe cut-away gown. It was the only look I liked at this lackluster event.

Her big announcement was matched by some amazing big bold Lorraine Schwartz jewels which included an emerald ring which provided a nice contrasting to her bold hue of her gown and platinum ?and white?diamond tassel ?earrings.

A side sweeping ponytail and Rene Caovilla ivory platform heels with Swarovski crystal and pearl details completed her look.

Maternity watch will be very interesting.

I’m glad she let us know she is pregnant by making it obvious rather than hide her bump in oversized dresses like Bryce Dallas Howard and Aishwarya Rai did.

    She looks gorgeous here. Definitely one of the best times I have ever seen her look. Pregnancy must agree with her.
    Very nice announcement and she looks happy and glowing.

    This might be the best Beyonce has ever looked, and I’m so pleased she has chosen such a beautiful look to show off her bump.

  14. Sandie August 29, 2011 at 09:07 #

    I literally screamed when I saw her touching her belly. So happy for her. The evening was hers I believe. She looked stunning!

  15. Vidhya August 29, 2011 at 06:56 #

      Thank you…x

  17. rebecca o August 29, 2011 at 05:38 #

    She looks fabulous. Everyone else looked terrible. What a crappy event.

  18. niya August 29, 2011 at 05:35 #

    I just love her, she does look lovely esp in the sea of uninspiring black/grey dresses that showed up on tonight’r red carpet.

  19. Ella August 29, 2011 at 05:19 #

    She was hands down the best dressed of the night. She wore a color that just added to her maternity glow. Loved it!

  20. Cheryl August 29, 2011 at 05:12 #

    One of her most beautiful moments 🙂

  21. pascha August 29, 2011 at 05:07 #

    She is gorgeous and hands down the best dressed there.

    Haha and thanks for including that picture with Nicki Minaj. Best dressed standing next to the worst dressed much? 😛

    • Fashion Critic August 29, 2011 at 09:01 #

      I have no words for Nicki

  22. taylor August 29, 2011 at 04:58 #

    She looks stunning.

  23. Rebecca Z August 29, 2011 at 04:52 #

    Stunning–beautiful dress and makeup, and I like the jewelry– gorgeous woman showing lots of class.

  24. Incroyable August 29, 2011 at 04:46 #

    Of all the looks I’ve seen of the night, this is the only one I’ve enjoyed. Best Dressed Of The VMAs for sure!

  25. Alina August 29, 2011 at 04:42 #

    Stunning !!!

    I’m so happy for her and Jay !

  26. Amaka August 29, 2011 at 04:41 #

    She is glowing 🙂

  27. Shaina August 29, 2011 at 04:07 #

    She looks beautiful. She is literally glowing, I am so so happy for her and Jay Z. She’s also my best dressed. Especially since every one else was dressed like they were going to some fancy funeral.

  28. Cynthia August 29, 2011 at 03:52 #

    Glowing. She looked so cute and her silent announcement at the end of her performance was cute. Jay looked so happy during her performance. I’m so happy for them.

  29. mm August 29, 2011 at 03:51 #

    Beyonce shut it down on the RC, during the show and the news cycle for the week. I am So happy for her and Jay.

  30. maria August 29, 2011 at 03:45 #

    i agree. she looked great and simple without much bling on the dress. I do not like her jewelry though, i wish she would have gone for more summery pieces instead of these big clunkers.

  31. Amber August 29, 2011 at 03:45 #

    Well, at least it isn’t her normal uniform of either a too tight mermaid gown or a too short mini-dress.

  32. Hannah August 29, 2011 at 03:44 #

    I completely agree, best dressed, easily. The runway dress was divine, and she only improved it. Even though I feel that simpler/les jewels would nto have goen amiss, this is beyonce, so it was pointless wishing, but I do love the interesting choice of emerald with orange. Her hair is also incredible, and her makeup is perfect too, undoubtedly enhanced by her beautiful, natural luminescent glow, which has only increased with her pregnancy. I am so happy for her and Jay-Z, maternity is sure to be amazing, thank god, I am aving Alba withdrawal symptoms already.

    • Hannah August 29, 2011 at 03:46 #

      Also, FC, thanks for all your coverage tonight, especially since it was a pretty rubbish event, and it is now almost 4 am, and still, almost, the weekend, so I really appreciate it 🙂

      • Fashion Critic August 29, 2011 at 03:47 #

        my pleasure…I had help from Zarina too

        • Hannah August 29, 2011 at 03:57 #
