The Mtv Video Music Awards were last night and the stars were out in some fun flirty looks.  Common theme for the night were party dresses in black, white and metallic hues.  Here are some of my favorites and some attainable options to rock similar looks.

Emma Stone rocked in a leather sheath mini dress, the conservative style was perfect for the sultry fabric.  She paired her rock and roll look with black crystal adorned louboutins.

Despite Kesha’s terrible braid and the fact that her dress was made out of garbage bags the cut and style of the dress is fantastic.  The plunging neckline is balanced with the semi covered shoulder. The garbage bag sheen also creates an interesting texture that creates a subtle metallic.

Selena Gomez Shimmered in a silver lamè corset dress with draped grecian inspired skirt.  The draping, killer slit, and shimmering color radiated against the white carpet.

Audrina Patridge is the queen of being sultry chic, her sequin mini dress was no exception.  It seemed that she had one too many accessories on with the multi strand belt, and chunky bangles.  I also didn’t love the pairing of the gold balmain shoes with the silver dress,  but the dress alone is delicious.
