The  2013 VMAs were held in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Aug. 25 at the Barclays Center for the first time. Everyone waited for Brooklyn’s A-List power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce, to make an appearance, but the highly-anticipated moment never came.

Their absence was especially strange considering Jay Z used to have a small stake in the Barclays Center before starting his sports agency, Roc Nation Sports.

But Queen Bey and HOVA did make it out to the VMAs after party. The dynamic duo were spotted by paparazzi in Brooklyn looking chic on their way to the star-studded event.

Beyonce was the essence of elegance a form-fitting, black cut-out dress and wore her new bob with wavy curls. Jay Z went for a more casual look in jeans and a royal blue satin shirt with plenty of bling.
