The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards

So like I mentioned last week, I was invited to attend this year’s 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, courtesy of the fabulous Gucci Guilty fragrance.  Me = seriously ecstatic.  We met beforehand for some cocktails and apps at one of my favorites, Katsuya downtown, which just so happens to be right next to the Nokia Theater, site of the VMA’s.  As I sat and chatted with other blogger and web friends, it kind of hit me how totally lucky I am to get to attend such amazing events in LA…and when Katsuya gets brought into the mix, well there’s no going back from there.

After I stuffed myself with Katsuya’s Baked Crab roll and Crispy Rice Spicy Tuna, we headed over to the show and went up to a VIP area, where they served even more food and alas, open bar.  Heaven!  Once the show started, I knew we were all in for a treat- my obsession with Chelsea Handler only grew stronger after such an amazing show…who doesn’t love a good meat-based dress, no?  But what would an award show post be without a little fashion recap?  Here are my three favorite looks from the night:

Audrina Patridge in this sparkly silver number…I have to say, I’m not always a fan of what Audrina wears but this dress is eye-catching and definitely VMA appropriate.

Evan Rachel Wood looks amaze in this subtle leopard Gucci number from Spring Resort 2011.  Evan also happens to be the face of Gucci Guilty but I’m totally not biased…love this dress.

Ashley Greene.  Well, normally this dress would be a little too frou-frou perfect for my taste but in this case, I like it.  It’s age-appropriate and I love the black and white.

The thing about the VMA’s is that they’re about fun, not necessarily high fashion.  A fun, sparkly, short dress is always a sure bet for the white carpet.  I was lucky enough to be sent an amazing little number from Nuova Vita and I’m totally into it.  This dress line is fab because the dresses come in several different colors and can be worn more than TWELVE ways.  Seriously. I was a little confused at first but I check out the site’s very idiot-proof videos and now I’m a dress-wrapping pro.  I opted for the one shoulder (a la Kim Kardashian) for this particular VMA event and mixed the cranberry color with pretty turquoise vintage earrings that my friend Tiffany got me for my birthday.  I can’t wait to try out the eleven other ways to wear this baby.
