lady gaga, beyonce, and the teen wolf queen who always wins…

by faran krentcil

MTV's Video Music Awards are always a talked-about affair (during the live broadcast, every major trending topic on Twitter had something to do with the pop culture spectacle). But this time around, two things threatened to steal the show: Beyonce's pregnancy, revealed with a triumphant whip of her Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket, and the fashion on the red carpet. Clearly, VMA style is hit or miss (Lil Kim's nipple pad remains etched in our brains) and this year was no exception. But somewhere between the mundane (Katie Holmes' lacy tea dress) and the insane (Katy Perry's literal take on Dior couture) there were things that made us look up from our Facebook page. Below, our Top 8. As usual, if you vote someone off or on in the comments section, we'll rearrange the gallery!

Beyonce looks glamorous and gorgeous in red.

Adele performs in Barbara Tfank, and for five minutes, the VMAs were actually classy.

Lady Gaga in Brooks Brothers. The outfit is amazing. The Danny Zuko hair and makeup - well, whatever, we were born this way.

We've never seen Victoria Justice's show, but we would gladly watch this THEIA outfit again.

Louise Roe in Matthew Williamson.

Zoe Saldana kills it (again).

Britney Spears is back, y'all!

Crystal Reed in a t-shirt, a miniskirt, and the best accessories ever - Tyler Poesy and Dylan "Stiles" O'Brien.
