Back in black!

A slew of stars arrived at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in outrageous, colorful ensembles, but it was the celebs who played it safe in black outfits that were among the night's best dressed. 

Best Pop Video winner Britney Spears opted for a black sequined Moschino romper and patent leather peep-toe Gina booties.

Fashion-forward actress Zoe Saldana rocked a plunging tweed minidress embellished with gold and silver military-style detail and leather panels by Barbara Bui. She accessorized with snakeskin heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Singer and X Factor judge Kelly Rowland donned a cleavage-baring Falguni & Shane Peacock dress. The gold embroidered mini featured a feathered skirt and leather detail at the waist.
