The Tackiest Outfits On The 2013 VMA Red Carpet

Katy Perry presented the biggest surprise on this year’s MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, by surprising us in a way we weren’t even expecting: she wore a dress we’ve already seen. The Emanuel Ungaro dress was really familiar, and we soon remembered that Coco Rocha wore the exact same one to this year’s punk Met Gala. But she paired it with a grill and Richard Simmons, so we guess it was original?

Everything else was pretty much what we expected: Miley Cyrus in a crop top, Lady Gaga in her usual-of-late black, and lots of sequins and skin. There were a few nice looks, but all in all, it was a very tacky offering from the music world. Check out the worst offenders below.


Katy Perry is a copy cat.


Richard Simmons, a loud and colorful accessory.


Check out those teeth.


Miley Cyrus in vintage Dolce and Gabbana and upsetting buns


Ciara‘s Givenchy Couture is a bit much.


2 Chainz was technically tacky in Versace, but we loved it.


We get it, Danity Kane, you all have great legs.


Snooki wears NYC Glitz, whatever that is.


Riff Raff, doin’ him.


We wanted to like Lady Gaga‘s Morticia Addams-inspired custom Prabal Gurung look, but that wig looks pretty plastic.

What do you think? What were you favorite/least favorite looks?
