Instead of the usual red carpet parade, MTV choose to lay out a white carpet, probably not wanting to interfere with the star’s outfits anymore. Smart decision!
Katy Perry showed up without her husband-to-be Russell Brand, who she started dating at last year’s show, but he wasn’t far from her mind, or hands. She had his picture glued on to her nails.
Lady Gaga, who always outdoes herself in the fashionably weird department, heated the carpet up in a bold look from the late Alexander McQueen‘s final collection.
UPDATE: After the carpet came the stage … Check out the haute-couture!!!
Ke$ha loves garbage chic and she kept that theme going at the MTV Video Music Awards with a dress made out of garbage bags. The “Tik Tok” singer claimed she got the bags at Home Depot and threw a little something together for the occasion.
Florence wore a flowy pastel dress on top of a circular platform and intense gothy dancers surrounded her.
