PHOTOS: Bold, Backless, And Bright On The VMA Red Carpet
Tonight, while fashion obsessives everywhere stormed the streets in search of deals, steals, and free booze, MTV doled out its annual Video Music Award honors. The usual suspects were there (Katy, Ke$ha, Nicki) in the usual garb (short, tight, bright). But there were also a few surprises.
Rihanna debuted a cropped new ‘do in a minimalist white gown, while Taylor Swift forwent her sparkly, sequined style for an equally white pantsuit by J. Mendel. On the print front, Emma Watson hit a home run in a mixed-and-match minidress and Minaj channeled nothing so much as Spiderman in — what else? — a form-fitting nylon jumpsuit. The biggest disappointment, however, goes to Miley Cyrus, whose newly Robyn-ified hair defied gravity — while her dress, quite simply, defied taste.
