When it comes to award shows, we're all about who's winning and losing on the red carpet.  Last year's MTV Video Music Awards were filled with fun, fabulous and sassy fashion.  While we loved most of last night's fashion, our favorite two fashionista starlets were a gorgeous Beyonce and beautiful Katy Perry. 

Beyonce knows how to make anything glamorous; even pregnancy.  The singer stunned us all with her pregnancy announcement.  Congratulations to the happy couple!  This couple sure does know how to keep a secret!  They could get jobs with the CIA.....  While we are always waiting for the next celebrity baby bump announcement, we just figured the only announcement we'd get this year was her music.....

Anyway, back to fashion.  Beyonce rocked the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in a bold orange Lanvin gown from the designer's Fall 2011 collection.  Everything about the gown fit Beyonce to a tee.  From the one-shoulder draped style to the bold Lorraine Schwartz bling and Rene Caovilla heels, everything worked.  We're looking forward to the Beyonce pregnancy style watch.........

Now, on to our other favorite of the night; Ms. Katy Perry.  We fell in love with Katy's playful Christian Dior look from the designer's Fall 2011 collection.  The pink, yellow, green and black & white combo were fun, flirty and so Katy.  The tulip skirt was divine.  And how could you not love that Stephen Jones topper?
Well done, ladies!

Formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone's sexy white/ivory Vera Wang Wedding Rehearsal Dress

When it comes to Formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone's wedding, nothing is over the budget. 

Budget?  What budget??  Not when dear dad is one of the most richest billionaires in the world.......... [insert our wistful sigh!].

We're still looking forward to seeing the "we know they will be fabulous wedding photos" from Petra's wedding to fiancé James Stunt.  Rumors abound that the bride rocked a fabulous Vera Wang creation.  Vera's definitely in high celebrity demand.........

When it came to her rehearsal dinner fashion, Petra went all out in a gorgeous and sexy long white Vera Wang gown. We love the elegance!

The uber lavish nuptials were held at the same castle where TomKat tied the knot five years ago (wow, time really flies).  The Black Eye Peas performed in a private concert at the wedding ...... for a reported $1 million.  What's next for Petra?  Moving into the late Aaron Spellings massive estate, which she purchased for $85 million.

How we would have loved to be guests or cristal champage bottles at this event.  LOL!

Kim Kardashian's 3 Vera Wang Wedding Dresses will be available at David's Bridal in 2012

2011's big wedding reality tv special event is finally over!  Until the 2 part E! TV Special, of course.  Which I'll probably watch because I love watching wedding shows regardless of who the couple is.  Plus, how can one ignore the spectacle of it all. 

Anyway, since all the PEOPLE Magazines featuring Kim and her wedding photos seem to be sold out, an ultra fab Krystal over at GLAMAZONS scanned Kim and Kris's wedding story and photos.  I'll just highlight Kim's 3 Vera Wang dresses and white Vera Wang white bridal party dresses.  I actually like her dresses for her.  She stayed true to her personality and style.  The white bridesmaid dresses are not too shabby either, in my humble opinion.

Now, for those brides who are seeking replicas of Kim Kardashian's Vera Wang dresses (or the real deal...), Vera plans to debut replicas of all three dresses at David's Bridal.  During an interview with E! News (the Kim Kardashian news hub....), the designer showed off her three replicas and explained that for couture gowns, it takes about three weeks and a lot of hands on time to create a lovely bodice.  No wonder those cost a fortune. 

I saw the replicas during the E! News interviews and they looked pretty good.  Luxe is good, but for those stylish recessionistas, the feel of shelling out a mere $1,500 versus a whopping $20,000 is definitely the smart route.  As far as the replica gowns, after seeing all three on Vera's E! special, my pick is dress no. 2.  Not everyone has Kim's body so for regular women, there will be plenty of room to breathe.......

The replica gowns hit David's Bridal after February 2012.........................!  I guess you've got to give time to enjoy her exclusivity first, right? LOL!


Lindsay Lohan in plunging white Temperley dress at Kim Kardashian's wedding...Lindsay Lohan v. Pippa Middleton..

We are not even sure why we are putting this up for debate, but we will...

Lindsay Lohan was one of the 'stylish' guests at Kim Kardashian's wedding this past saturday and Lindsay definitely attempted to wow in a plunging white Temperley dress.  If this dress looks familiar, it is because this is the same dress (in green) that Pippa Middleton wore to her sister's royal wedding reception.

Now, on to the good part.  Lindsay v. Pippa.  Who rocked and who bombed? 

As a sidenote, what happened to Lindsay's youthful glow???

Kim Kardashian's wedding video: Sneak peek of Kim Kardashian's Vera Wang dress and diamond head piece

A bejeweled 'princessreality' Kim said her I Dos with hubby, Kris Humphries on Saturday.  While our  fashionista bridinista clients are waiting for a Kim's wedding dress pics or all 3 of her Vera Wang dresses, here's a lil E! News wedding ceremony video with a sneak peek of the dress.  It appears ivory was the color of the night for the Kardashian and Jenner gals.  We're not a huge skeptic when it comes to other people's relationships, so here's wishing Kim and Kris a healthy, happy marriage, no matter long it lasts

Kim Kardashian's wedding dress inspired by Nicole Ritchie

A timeless old Hollywood classic look!  That's the look celebreality starlet and bride Kim Kardashian is aiming to capture.  Earlier today, the reality tv starlet gave her exclusive dress details to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.

The starlet is looking forward to her wedding tomorrow.  She's expecting a small, intimate crowd of about 500 close friends and family. 

When it came to designing her perfect gown, she looked no further than Nicole Ritchie.  Kim told Ryan that her pal Nicole callled her saying....."Oh my God, I have this vision for your gown just hear me out please, please, I think you should go super classic, really old Hollywood."  According to Kim, Nicole told her not to do anything "trendy" or "show off too much."  The result?  Kim's interpretation of a timeless design.

I can't wait to see what the dress looks like, but if its anything like Nicole Ritchie's own timeless Grace Kelly inspired style then it should be beautiful. 

And the other gowns?  I'm guessing Kim plans to wow in other party looks!

Kim has asked her guests to wear black or white.  Does that mean she'll wear a white dress with a black sash or some other black and white combo? 

We'll see in a few hours.

Good luck and congrats to the happy couple!
