Beyonce Knowles returned to the red carpet for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA, hosted at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24).
Like a selection of other stars who embraced the sartorial dark side, she flaunted a moody moment in a black Nicolas Jebran Couture long-sleeve, curve-hugging gown with peekaboo spider-web netting and glittery sequined embellishment.
Somewhat in the spirit of Chanel Iman’s dress, Bey’s look had me wondering whether she was rather warm. But her shimmery, smoky eye, glossy nude lip and flowing waves only translated as cool, calm and collected.
It was those massive Lorraine Schwartz earrings that really did all the talking, though. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen earrings that mammoth in size. With their distracting proportions, they seemed better suited for the performance stage than the red carpet.
