Beyoncé dons high fashion maternity gear at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

What an interesting maternity watch this will be. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, lol, you know Beyoncé made a very special announcement at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, and she did it without saying much of anything.

Instead, the Love on Top singer simply walked onto the red carpet, held her stomach in that universal expecting motherly way, and that was that. Her head-to-toe glow in Lanvin Fall 2011 didn’t hurt things either.

Bey’s first look of the night was an orange, one-shoulder silk Lanvin dress. She kept her accessories to a minimum (for Beyoncé, anyway), adding only an oversized emerald ring, tassel earrings, and a statement cuff on her wrist, all by Lorraine Schwartz. Subtle makeup, and a simple side ponytail complete the beauty portion of her look.

For her second ensemble of the evening, Beyoncé donned a suited Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 look to perform Love on Top from her latest album, 4. Her outfit consisted of a purple sequined tux jacket, crisp white shirt, and easy fitting black slacks.

During her lively and throwback inspired performance, King B didn’t let her newly revealed baby bump keep her from dancing across the stage in a pair of sky high black platform heels. Clearly Beyoncé’s pregnancy style won’t be your typical maternity wardrobe, and I eagerly await seeing what she’ll wear next.
