WORST: Katy Perry fails miserably to rock the latest leopard skin trend. The gold butterflies on top deflect from what could have been a hot outfit. The grill just makes a bad situation worse!
BEST: Selena Gomez shows she’s a grown up without looking desperate or cheap in this sleek, blue gown that reveals her lacy bra.
WORST: Miley Cyrus looks like she was playing dress-up with her grandma’s jewels and didn’t have enough time to change before heading off to the VMAs.
WORST: Snooki may have ditched the pounds but you can’t tell. The petite star is drowning in this oversized dress.
WACKIEST: Peek-a-eew! Erin Wasson looks like she has thrown a sheer, wrinkly stocking over her underwear.
WACKIEST: For most human beings this look is wacky. But for fitness instructor Richard Simmons, lime green leggings and a sparkly vest top are his version of jeans and a T-shirt.
WORST: And the award for best impression of a large feather duster goes to…Rita Ora. Her attempt to make a sweeping entrance with her glitzy jacket and swan-like train is an epic fail.
WACKIEST: 2 Chainz, one rapper and zero style sense. This hip-hop star looks like he’s wearing his grandmother’s curtains!
BEST: She’s a tad overdressed for the VMA’s but JWoww cuts an elegant figure in this halter-neck, black and white gown.
BEST: This see-through gown with strategically placed lace and jewels help Ciara to balance elegance with sexy.
BEST: Ellie Goulding goes for spunky and unique in this prickly sleeveless dress.
WACKIEST: Riff Raff by name. Riff Raff by nature. Forget ghetto fabulous. This look is trailer park trendy at it’s best.
WORST: Good from afar. But far from good! Lady Gaga’s dress forms a sleek silhouette. But up close her outfit looks like it’s made of carefully, crafted garbage bags.
WORST: Given her past VMA attire Lil Kim is relatively overdressed for this event. Maybe she was trying to go for a more grown-up look with this bizarre ensemble.
BEST: Quirky, hippie-chic and fun. You’d expect nothing less from Girls’ star Jemima Kirke.
BEST: Zip to it! Melissa Gorga from The Real Housewives of New Jersey puts a new twist on the little black dress with this leather outfit.
BEST: Jennifer Hudson works the red carpet in this black and white combo.
BEST: Daft Punk meets Men In Black. The French music duo look surprisingly good…even if they are hiding in plain sight underneath those shiny helmets.
Willow Smith and Jaden Smith
WORST: Willow Smith looks great in her denim dungarees but her brother Jaden lets the side down with his slovenly garb.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
BEST: Thrift Shop swagger clearly works for rapper Macklemore. This pea green suit and furry adornment wouldn’t look good on everyone.
Ronnie Magro and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola
BEST: Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola channels the Sixties in her monochrome mini-dress.
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
BEST: Va-va-va-va-voom. There are no blurred lines on Paula Patton’s sexy dress.
WORST: No. That’s what Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s stylist should have told her before she attempted to leave the house in ripped leggings and a mesh top.
WORST: Drake clearly didn’t want to make an effort when he was getting ready for the VMAs but his shirt at the very least makes a statement.
BEST: Taylor Swift takes Forties Hollywood glamour to the VMAs in this sleek midnight blue number. The plunging neckline and sleek waves only add to the screen siren image.
WORST: If either her top or her skirt – or both – were a bit longer, Shailene Woodley’s outfit would have been perfect.
WORST: Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland makes an awkward attempt at glamour in this red and gold dress.
