The highlight of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards has to be Beyoncé’s announcement of her pregnancy at the end of her glittery performance. The singer danced and sang to ‘Love on Top’ introducing it by saying, “Tonight I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me.”
She wore a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble for the appearance which included a sequined tuxedo jacket. At the end of the song, she opened her jacket, smiling and rubbing her growing bump. The revelation sparked one of the biggest moments in Twitter history with a rate of 8,868 tweets per second.
Dolce and Gabbana are extremely happy to have dressed Beyoncé for the momentous occasion. Domenico Dolce told The Cut, “We are very happy for her for her maternity, and we are proud she announced it while wearing Dolce & Gabbana!” He went on to say, “She is versatile, determined, and never afraid of changes.” His sentiments were echoed by Stefano Gabbana who added, “She will be a fantastic mother and we are sure that during her pregnancy she will not lose a bit of her glamour and sensuality.” Congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
