We’re constantly anticipating the next awards show (call us fashion obsessed) and when the MTV Video Music Awards was around the corner, we had to cancel out all other appointments so that our eyes could stay glued to the television screens. The VMAs see stars getting all kitted out in the coolest getups and since we’re always shedding the light on the beautiful ladies, how about we show some love to the men too?


The VMAs this year saw the cutest couples on the red carpet and we just had to feature their complimentary showstopper looks. Of course Kim Kardashian, Queen Bey and Nicki Minaj made it to the list with their partners in crime. Our favourite of the lot? Beyoncé and Blue Ivy!

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy

So dreamy, adorable and ethereal. Beyoncé and Blue Ivy stole the show in pastel dramatic numbers adorned in tulle, feathers, and glittter. Keep slaying you two.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West 

Hollywood’s love-to-hate-hate-to-love couple didn’t take the VMAs too seriously and came dressed in yin and yang. Kim had her hair in a wet messy do and Kanye – well, no one does Kanye best than the man himself.

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill 

Altogether now, “Awwwwwww”. Just look at this loving duo! Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are every bit of a couple madly in love. The dress that Nicki has on accentuates her curves in all the right places and we love how her man matches her stunning number with studded green sneakers.

Laura Perlongo and  Nev Schulman

A hit on the red carpet, Laura Perlongo’s growing baby bump was bare for the world to see and although it’s an uncommon sight for mamas to flaunt their bumps so openly, the look is slowly growing on us! And with a matching coloured shirt, Catfish star Nev Schulman, looked like a dashing husband and daddy-to-be!
