On display last night at the MTV Video Music Awards: a lucid Britney Spears, svelte Christina Aguilera and lots and lots of diamonds.

Despite bling on all ends of the stage, my eyes were on host Russell Brand, the British comedian who took a scene-stealing turn in this summer's Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

While his hosting skills might be debatable (urging kids to vote: very cool; poking fun at the Jonas brothers for wearing chastity rings: not so cool), his was the only jewelry that I openly remarked about.

Check out PopSugar for the full ensemble, and you’ll see a wrist load of bracelets, rings on both hands and a neck studded with pendants. OK, so maybe you don't want to take style tips from a guy with that hair, but at least he's got us talking, right?

Brand's skull pendants and diamond rings are from Loree Rodkin, a designer known for her medieval-style jewelry and a favorite of rockers such as Marilyn Manson and Avril Lavigne.
