Celebrity Spotlight: VMAs Edition

The VMAs were yesterday and man were they a ride. Rihanna killed it not once, not twice, not thrice, but with four performances throughout the show before receiving her Vanguard Award. We got some quality time with Kanye before he debuted his new, *ahem* interesting video featuring Teyana Taylor as a cat (we don't know what was happening either). But, if this evening was about anything, it was about team "B", and of course we are talking about the incomparable Beyoncé and Britney Spears. Check out everything we loved about these legendary ladies at the VMAs last night!

Beauty Bio: Beyoncé

Birthday: September 4, 1981, born and raised in Houston, Texas (which she makes abundantly clear in her song "Daddy Lessons").

Relationship Status: Married to rapper and mogul Jay Z with their daughter Blue Ivy, can you believe she's already 4?!

VMAs Highlight: Uh, everything about her Lemonade concert that took over the awards show. It was a showstopper and what performers should aspire to, and of course we loved the girl power ;)

Style Staples: Sparkles, body hugging pieces, show-girl chic, which she recently has been pairing with more natural hairstyles and intricate braids.

Get Her Look

Beyoncé look is an airy, angelic dream in a Francesco Scognamiglio dress. The dress features a lot of linear crystal work that seems to just rain down her body. A grand pouf of feathers evoke wings, but also looks distinctly like a royal collar. Quite fitting for Queen Bey. A high glam look that fits in with the angelic outfits mirrored by the all the women from the Lemonade visual album that walked the carpet with her.

Get her look with:

1. Body Drench Argan Oil Emulsifying Dry Body Oil $28, 2. Venique Tip to Toe Sprinkles 3 Piece Nail Art Kit $26, 3. Lola’s Backstage Beauty Highlighting Powder $26 


Beauty Bio: Britney Spears

Birthday: December 2, 1981, born in McComb, Mississippi, but grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana.

Relationship Status: Britney's doing Britney, and is the proud mom of her two kids Sean and Jayden.

VMAs Highlight: Britney being at the VMAs to take the stage again, after a marring performance in 2007, took guts. She gave a redemptive show that brought back the pop Britney we know and love, that she undoubtedly has been cultivating at her residency in Las Vegas. You go Brit Brit.

Style Staples: Go-go diva boots, and glimmering performance leos contrast her generally simple silhouettes for the red carpet.

Get Her Look

Britney Spears went for a pretty understated look (as understated a dress that slashes across her chest can be, but hey it's the VMAs) with a sleek black number by Versace. The dress creates some interesting shapes, with a plunging diagonal neckline and an asymmetrical one shoulder cut. A good update to the little black dress, we'd say.

Get her look with: 1. Tigi Luxe Lipgloss (Foxy) $10, 2. ClayPac ClayOns Salon Treatment (Lemon) $22, 3. St. Tropez Gradual Tan for the Body, $28
