The event, which was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, saw everything from playful sneakers to summer sandals.
Beyoncé, winner of the Best Female R&B artist, paired her yellow Stéphane Rolland gown with nude Givenchy sandals. The singer was joined in the front row by husband Jay-Z, Kanye West and new pal Kim Kardashian, who chose to rock a pair of gold Tom Ford sandals.
Kardashian’s boyfriend, West, took the casual route. The rapper donned his signature Air Yeezy II sneakers while accepting the award for “Video of the Year” with partner Jay-Z, who interrupted West mid-sentence a la Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj showed off multiple looks as she went through several costume changes throughout the evening. One of the female musician’s standout styles was a pair of sparkly Christian Louboutin pumps.
And for his musical performance, “Male R&B Artist of the Year” winner Chris Brown hit the stage in a pair of Air Jordan Retro 12s.
