One of the biggest starts of the moment, Katy Perry, stole the spotlight at the MTV VMA 2011 with her colorful outfits and nail art. She has always shown a style of her own and it is usually colorful and sweet with some elements that make it a bit different. This year, we not only got to see one outfit, but two, which she changed during the event.
Her first outfit was the Atelier Versace flock inspired from Asia and she had pink pastel nails with yellow lines that looked great with the outfit; it was like her clothes continued to her fingers and everything look great. The pink hair is always a nice touch and the little Asian umbrella was the perfect accessory for this outfit.
She then switched to a Christian Dior Fall 2011 couture ensemble. Not only did she change her clothes, but also her nails which were now black and white geometric inspired from the 80s. What is an outfit without a shocking element? Katy Perry had a yellow cube on her head for this second outfit and she was rocking the look. We got to see her receive the award for Video Of The Year, the most prestigious award of the night, for her song Firework.
It was an amazing night for this young star who took the music industry by storm for the last couple of years. Ever since I Kissed A Girl was released in 2008, Katy Perry became known worldwide for her great voice and unique style. Other hits quickly followed and now, in 2011 we finally see her getting one of the most important awards in the music industry.
The 2011 VMA were not just about winning this award for Katy Perry. She was nominated for 10 awards and had four music videos shown in different categories; the only artist in history with this achievement. During the event, she won three awards including Best Collaboration and Best Special Effects for E.T. featuring Kanye West. She is a great example of what happens when you combine a great musical talent with an incredible fashion style.
