Taylor Swift

Looking clean-cut and professional in an all-white suit, the country crooner stepped onto the red carpet in an ivory number by J. Mendel, completing the look with heavy bangs and blood-red lips.

Katy Perry

Queen of cleavage Katy Perry played it safe this year, opting for a natural hair color and a floor-length gown. Showing her more glamorous side, the “Part of Me” singer arrived at the Los Angeles event in a teal and fuschia-embroidered Elie Saab dress.

Nikki Minaj

We aren’t sure who created this sequined jumpsuit—maybe kids at a craft table? But we have to give her props for her colorful flair, showcased in a bright yellow wig, pink lips, and police-inspired cap.

Stella McCartney can do no wrong. Pink looked fierce in this floor-length number accented with Loree Rodkin jewelry.

Miley Cyrus

Showing that she has truly outgrown her stay with Disney Co., this newly blond bombshell wore an Emilio Pucci black silk organza gown, leaving all eyes on her new ‘do. (Except for that plunging neckline… we noticed that, too.)

Rihanna proved that less is more, rocking closely cropped hair and a modest white gown on the red carpet.

Gabrielle Douglas and Co.

Team USA’s Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, and Aly Raisman showed us why they deserve to win gold on the red carpet.

Emma Watson

Looking far too colorful to be a Wallflower, the Hogwarts alum looked retro and chic in a graphic printed mini-dress.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato loves rock ‘n’  roll. Showing off her playful side, the newly appointed X Factor judge played with leather and studs in a layered look.

Last week, she had the word “penis” branded on her index-finger nail, so we weren’t exactly sure what to expect when the “Tik Tok” singer stepped out at this year’s VMAs. Looking surprisingly demure in a nude minidress, the singer showed off her platinum blonde locks.

Rita Ora

Who knew a jumpsuit could be so smokin’ hot? British singer Rita Ora wore a Emilio Pucci number, showing off her ample … neck, and leaving nothing to the imagination.

Zoe Saldana

She may be starring in The Words, but we are speechless when it comes to Zoe’s Salvatore Ferragamo gown. The icing on the cake comes in the form of an Alexander McQueen clutch.
