Power Couples Who Rocked VMA 2016: Show Stopping Duos who Came in Twos
The MTV Video Music Awards went down on Sunday, and among the most watched were celebrity power couples — some rocked the red carpet, some not. Nevertheless, the star quality and the power duos were simply “it” and you can’t miss them.
1. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill
It was a Blue Sunday for Nicki Minaj as she posed on the red carpet with Meek Mill’s arms all about her. She wore a revealing full-length, chiffon gown with a deep, plunging neckline that hid only her private parts. The dress was stunning but Nicki’s body, moreso! Nicki performed during the show together with Ariana Grande. Meek Mill went casual dressed in pants, boots and college jersey that bore embroidered red roses on both sides of the chest.
2. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz: Still continuing to sport her naturally freckled face with a no makeup look, R&B artist and producer Alicia Keys was on fire in a loose, sheer dress with red and black prints. She presented the Best Male Video Award. Swizz Beatz casually wore a white blazer over a black shirt and white denims. The couple has been married since 2010.
3. Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Queen Bey walked the VMA red carpet with daughter, Blue Ivy, in hand. The mother and daughter duo were channeling royalty — Beyoncé in a full, white gown that had a dramatic shoulder which made her look like a Snow Queen, while Blue Ivy wore a champagne gown with a jewel in her head. Beyoncé was the most nominated artist of the night winning 8 of 11 nominations. She also performed a five song medley during the show.
Where’s Jay-Z? The king and queen didn’t walk the red carpet together but were spotted having dinner after, and an after party that followed with four other couples — Alicia Keys and Swiss Beatz, Lauren Branche and Steve Stoute, Cassie and Diddy, and Kimye.
4. Sean Diddy Combs and Cassie. The couple did not walk the VMA 2016 red carpet together but were seated together during the show. Diddy came with his usual all black casual ensemble, long, gold blings hanging from his nape. He presented the Best Hip Hop Video Award. Long time girlfriend and model, Cassie, was stunning in a greyish green blazer worn with her chest open, paired with gold pants and a bright yellow bob haircut.
5. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
The reality star – singer, producer couple looked perfectly matched for the cameras. Kim wore a sheer dress that seriously showed off a lot of skin and curves while Kanye was in an all-white shirt and denim ensemble. Kim introduced Britney Spears and G-Eazy in Britney’s comeback performance at the VMA following her much criticized 2007 showing.
Love ’em or hate ‘em, these couples will continue to be watched as the public stays interested on what they’re all up and about. On of off of the red carpet, the public will keep on the lookout for these celebrity power couples.
