The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards took place on September 13, Sunday. The premiere was watched by 27 million viewers. On the red carpet, the stars reflect the fashion of this year, wearing extra-large hoop earrings, a sparkly or metallic dress, combination of black and white diamond jewelry or an armful of bracelets–or all four at once.
Beyonce, who took home three Moonman awards including Video of the Year for her song Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), wore more than a million dollars worth of diamond jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz. Her gigantic pair of hoop earrings, worth $450,000, were crafted of diamond and rock crystal. Moreover the trio of bangles, valued at $600,000, were made of lavender, green and black carved jade with diamonds and rubies.
Pink also joined the hoop trend wearing Siera diamond triangle earrings and a white gold and pave diamond chain-link ring by R.S. Durant and an Irit Design oxidized sterling silver and rose-cut diamond multi-chain bracelet.
Jennifer Lopez was wearing large platinum drop earrings featuring two interlocked asymmetrical links studded with black and white diamonds by Lorraine Schwartz.
Lauren Conrad was in a black-and-white graphic-print dress accented with diamond floral band rings by Siera.
Actress Lisa Edelstein was distinguished with a shoulder-baring blue gown with diamond and platinum ball bracelets, bangles and earrings, plus three diamond and platinum rings, all by Neil Lane.
