The MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, but not without an air of controversy, ratchetness and omnipotent Bey sightings. If you’re like me and endured this year’s show in hopes of seeing Beyonce accept the coveted MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, then you know it was all worth it. There were a few highlights of the VMA’s last night, and I’ve sprinkled a few of Beyonce’s opening act moments for your enjoyment below.
Ariana Grande, Jesse J and Nicki Minaj kicked off the show with a medley of hits, Ariana Grande’s (aka Big Sean’s new boo) performed followed by a scandalous and booty-filled “Anaconda” performance by Nicki Minaj and then the heavily awaited performance of Jesse J’s “Bang Bang”.
The first award of the night went to Katy Perry (ft. Juicy J) for “Dark Horse” and then a few performance, awkward comedic monologues and epic crowd reaction side-eyes (Gwen Stefani and J.Lo – I’m looking at you…)
Even Taylor Swift got into the action performing “Shake it off” from her new album “1989” and Iggy Azelea and Rita Ora’s rendition of “Black Widow” had the crowd on it’s feet.
But nothing equalled to the moment we all waited for, the arrival of Beyonce’s earth-shaking and emotionally moving Video Vanguard Award performance. Performing every single song from her self-titled album, Beyonce’ sang, danced and gave fans the best performance of the show. Check out just a few award-winning moments from last night’s Video Music Awards below.

Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without Jay Z and baby Blue presenting the Video Vanguard Award to a tear-filled Beyonce following her mega performance. It was by far, my favorite moment of the show!

The fashion festivities have moved across seas to London and Paris and celebrities have made their way to celebrate the fashion festivities of both. One starlet who caught our eye is Rita Ora, hitting the pavement in a pair of Jimmy Choo Mogul Tall Cage Gladiator Boots.
This sandal-boot concoction has a suede cage shaft that stands 19″ inches tall with a four inch heel. Gold stud details are featured on the cage with a lace up front and inside zip. The open toe shoe has a thong detail and leather lining and sole. The sandal boot comb retails for $1495 and can be found in black at Luisaviaroma or in orchid at Nieman Marcus.
A tall sandal like these can get a little street walker-ish, and we would hate for you to see yourself on the Fashion Police with a street walker sign blocking your face. If you want to rock a tall sandal like Ms. Ora pair them with structure, edgy garments. Blazers, and leather or tailored shorts would be a perfect match for these shoes in the spring.
Divas its time for you to sound off, how would you wear these Sandals. Are you feeling Rita’s look, if not what would you change. Let us know below.
