Shakira

Seems like the colour theme for the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, held on Sunday, is black with slivers of silver every now and then.

From classy to whacky, these celebrities grabbed eyeballs with their outfits.

Columbian singer Shakira chose a strapless sheath and knee-length boots to show off her assets.

Lady Gaga

Pop sensation Lady Gaga grabbed eyeballs by appearing in a unique outfit.

The Poker Face hitmaker wore a black lace Jean Paul Gaultier dress with Dragon print silk underlay from Gaultier's fall/winter ready to wear collection. Her fashion accessory included Keko Hainswheeler neck brace and Kiko jewelry.

The 24-year-old walked the carpet with Kermit the Frog.

'I'm just happy to be here, and I'm excited for everyone to win,' Us magazine quoted her as saying.

Pink didn't choose her namesake. Instead she arrived at the event in this black sheath which looks remarkably like Shakira's.

Okay, so Jennifer Lopez's outfit is strictly not silver, but we'd use any excuse to include this hottie in this list.
