Lady Gaga looked rather conservative (for her) while making her grand entrance at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in a dramatic Renaissance-inspired gown from Alexander McQueen’s last collection. The pop star topped off her blue, lilac, and gray locks with a gold feather headpiece.
Usher clearly inspired his protege Justin Bieber’s ensemble. Not only did the duo come clad in head-to-toe black, but both fellas even tucked their pants into their shoes and donned black shades. Unfortunately, the 16-year-old pop star looked a little girly in his lady glasses while posing with the suave 31-year-old King of R&B.
Katy Perry probably described her baring black-and-white dress best herself when she said, “I feel like an ice skater. I also feel like I got a tattoo when I was drunk.” Rainbow Brite hair and nails adorned with images of her hubby-to-be, Russell Brand, completed the look.
Best New Artist nominee Ke$ha showed off her stems in a micro mini, which she made out of a trash bag! The “Blah Blah Blah” party girl paired her creative frock with turquoise rings, patent leather platform heels, a silver clutch, and an enormous braid.
“Twilight” hottie Ashley Greene delivered a model-like look in an embellished corset, ruffled mini, and freshly-highlighted tresses.
“Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara looked almost too classy for the MTV event in a sexy sequined sheath and patent-leather pumps.
Although we think Audrina Patridge looks better in gold, the reality cutie still glittered in a silver mini, which she accessorized with diamond bangles and sparkling, strappy heels.
Audrina’s former “Hills” co-stars, Stephanie Pratt and Lauren Bosworth, also got gussied up for the MTV event. While Steph looked like a sun-kissed California girl in a sheer sequined Nicole Miller dress, Lo paired her bouffant ‘do with a sassy strapless gold frock.
Disney darling Selena Gomez failed to impress in a tin foil-like frock, chintzy-looking heels, and an abundance of eyeshadow.
Selena’s fellow teen titan Miranda Cosgrove (“iCarly”) wore yet another matronly ensemble that belonged on someone three times her age.
30 Seconds to Mars bandmates Tomo Milicevic, Jared Leto, and Shannon Leto hit the white carpet in shades of gray. Jared — who is just as hot as he was when he starred on “My So-Called Life” — needs to tell his older brother Shannon that tight-rolling your pants (particularly your dress pants) is an ’80s trend that should never be revived.
Rosario Dawson looked slightly uncomfortable and a bit outdated in her ruched pleather dress, teal stilettos, and Joker-like lipstick.
Brenda Song — who appears in the upcoming flick “The Social Network” — was ready to rock in leather pants, a spangled top, and big hoops.
Let’s be honest, Ciara also deserves a second look. The R&B songstress dropped jaws at the MTV event in a fashion-forward Givenchy dress, statement earrings, and pink wedges. Va-va-voom!
Emma Stone hits the red carpet in a black Pucci mini dress. Emma finished her look with Neil Lane jewelry and Giuseppe Zanotti Design shoes. She also rocked a Dana Rebecca Designs Samantha Elizabeth Super Seven Quartz & Diamond Ring and Kara Ackerman Designs Inside Out Hoops in Silver & Diamond.
Marilyn Manson’s former flame Evan Rachel Wood pursed her lips and struck a pose in an ill-fitting, one-shoulder dress and thigh-high boots.
