VMA Fashion Meltdown! The Show’s 30 Craziest (And Crazy Bad) Outfits

View Photo/Video Gallery

In the almost three decades of the MTV Video Music Awards, we have seen a LOT. Magical performances, squirm-inducing smooches, totally awkward interruptions, triumphant victories. Above all, it has been a venue for the most wackadoodle fashions a famous person has ever put on. And we’re not just talking about Lady Gaga (though we are definitely talking about Gaga). Above, we present to you our list of 30 totally cray outfits, from Andrew Dice Clay’s sleazy retro look to Justin Timberlake‘s “Pop”-inspired rainbow to Rebel Wilson’s “revealing” bikini. Some of these were part of thought-provoking artistic performances, while others were just taking advantage of the no-holds-barred atmosphere of the red carpet. Or maybe the stylists were taking advantage of something else that day.

Ezra Miller Explains VMA Outfit Just The Way His Perks Of Being A Wallflower Character Would

Ezra Miller at the VMAs and in The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller was probably too busy jetting from the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles to the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend to notice that some of us — however reluctantly — had put him in our VMA Worst-Dressed list. But when VH1 Celebrity told him on the phone on Sunday that his outfit had been a “point of contention,” he smelled our BS all the way from Canada.

“Why don’t you just cut to the chase and tell me the honest opinion in the office about the caballero suit. I don’t need watered-down tales of unfabricated opinions,” he challenged. Well, we admitted, we did say he looked like a long-lost member of the Black Crowes.

“Oh no, oh no, oh no! See, horrible misinterpretation!” he exclaimed, before describing the unusual suit’s provenance. “I got it from a spot in Los Angeles, which is called Golyester and I just walked in, saw it, and was like, ‘Oh, this is this the dopest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m definitely going to wear this tonight at the VMAs.’ And then these awesome two women who work at Golyester named Zoey and Rebecca sewed it into shape and sold it me for a bargain. And yeah that’s pretty much the story. As for inspiration, it was a pretty inspired piece to begin with, in my humble opinion.”

As he told us this story, we weren’t imagining Ezra the actor as much as Patrick, the sweet, adventurous, openly gay, Rocky Horror Picture Show fan he plays in Perks. That same defiant individuality shines through in both of them. “I was drawn to this character, because he’s self-determined and he’s self-aware and he stands on his own two feet and he maintains his own dignity and his own pride, despite the sort of troubling circumstances that surround him and all of these conditions that challenge him and sort of seek to potentially degrade him,” he told us. “I was drawn to the character who stood in the midst of that storm, with his integrity intact.”

Rihanna Tells Piers Morgan To “Grow A …” On Twitter

 

Rihanna is one lady who definitely doesn’t take crap from anyone. But talk show host Piers Morgan decided to take his chances and make an unkind remark about Riri’s new pixie crop that she first unveiled at the MTV VMAs last week. Spoiler alert: he got burned right back. The singer performed at the closing ceremony for London’s 2012 Paraolympics last night alongside Jay-Z and Coldplay and Piers was not feeling her updated look. “Ps I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast.” he tweeted.

That’s when the singer launched her roundhouse kick to Piers’ feed. “@piersmorgan grow a d**k….. FAST!!!!” she shot back. Piers apparently d–k-less status caused him to become a trending topic on Twitter for the rest of the evening! Not exactly a great thing to become known for. Luckily the two kissed and made up soon after, with Morgan wisely deciding not to burn such a massive celebrity bridge. He invited her to appear on his show, and amazingly Rihanna was into it. “Haaaa! Only if it’s not about cosmetics! But phuck yea lets do it!!!!!!!!!” she wrote. We know everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but Piers’ is definitely wrong. Rihanna’s new ‘do looks ah-mazinggggggg! We wonder what he has to say about her dramatic new tattoo

Twilight‘s Elizabeth Reaser Explains Why She’s Finally Getting Her Twitter On

As prevalent as Twitter is among both celebs and regular folks alike, we sometimes forget what a huge step it is for someone, particularly a public figure, to decide to put it all out there, 140 characters at a time.

“I’ve stayed away from Twitter for a long time because I didn’t trust myself with such a very intimate but public way of relating to the world,” Twilight star and Twitter newcomer (@reasereaser) Elizabeth Reaser told VH1′s Kate Spencer on the red carpet at the VMAs. “But I feel like I’ve studied it enough, and I realized I was going on other people’s Twitter pages and I love seeing what my friends are up to. I love communicating with people, and I’ve actually kind of fallen in love with it.

“It’s a legal form of voyeurism, and I’m into it,” she added. “You don’t have to leave the house but you can communicate.”

After just five days on the service, Reaser admitted, “I’m really addicted to it now. It’s embarrassing. I’m having a really good time.” And we’re having a good time following her. In addition to chatting with her onscreen husband Peter Facinelli as they took in the VMAs last night, the actress also shared a couple of awesome pictures of herself: first in the car on the way to the show, then with the Fierce Five.

Katy Perry Kisses One Direction’s Niall Horan At The VMAs, Offers To Be His “Mrs. Robinson”

Katy Perry kisses One Direction's Niall Horan at the 2012 VMAs

Here’s one way to start adulthood off on the right foot! One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan is only18 but he’s already doing pretty well for himself, taking last night’s VMAs by storm and catching the attention of none other than Katy Perry. She was apparently really looking forward to seeing the British boyband, tweeting beforehand “If One Direction doesn’t perform on the VMAs I am gonna jump off this ledge.” She’s a big fan, we gather?

Katy got her chance to present Niall and his mates with a Best Pop Video Moonman for their song “What Makes You Beautiful” when she swooped in for a smooch. Yes, he seemed into it. Niall then tweeted a picture of the momentary hookup at Katy, saying “Looks like its official … me and you.” Smooth, dude. But it seemed like Ms. Perry was more than game to play the cougar card. “I’ll be your Mrs. Robinson…” she tweeted back. Looks like she’s got a new Teenage Dream. Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time she met man at the VMAs…

Pink, Alicia Keys, One Direction Can Count Celebs Among Their Superfans At The VMAs

“I look forward to that performance that people will be talking about for 10 years,” fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff told VH1′s Kate Spencer last night on the VMA red carpet. “I have a feeling that might be Alicia Keys tonight.”

His feeling may prove true, but not just due to Keys’ soaring vocals during “Girl on Fire.” Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas showed up onstage to deliver a bit of her floor exercise/dance in the middle of the song, definitely demonstrating what a girl on fire looks like.

Other celebs on the red carpet were likely satisfied with the performances of their faves, too. “One Direction just showed up!” the entire cast of MTV’s Inbetweeners practically squealed like tween girls, before breaking out into the boy band’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Besties Rihanna and Katy Perry seemed to be fans of nothing as much as each other all night. Their adorable shared whispers were the best cutaway shots of the show.

And Ne-Yo disclosed his plans for the night: “[I'm a] huge, huge fan of Pink; she never disappoints. I haven’t stalked anybody today, I think she’s going to be my target.”

Jackson Rathbone Opens Up About Being A New Dad On The VMA Red Carpet, Melts Our Hearts

We have no idea which is cuter: Jackson Rathbone’s new baby boy, or Jackson Rathbone describing his new baby boy. Check out the video above and you’ll see what we mean. It’s a tossup! VH1′s Kate Spencer caught up with the Twilight actor on the VMA red carpet last night, and asked him about life as a dad since the birth of his son Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI in early July. And it sounds pretty darn adorable.

“I’m used to long hours and late nights, but it’s much more rewarding raising a little baby,” says the 27-year old. “He’s the most wonderful thing. He’s so beautiful, he’s got the greatest smile, little dimples.” Not only is he super precious, but he’s also a sleeper. “We’re blessed because he sleeps through the night,” he added. Sounds like the ideal baby situation to us!

Do fun., Walk The Moon, Or RuPaul Want To Be The Subject Of A Taylor Swift Breakup Song?

The VMAs ended last night with Taylor Swift performing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” her latest stinging anthem to relationships gone horribly horribly wrong. It’s not news to say that T-Swizzle has gotten some pretty decent mileage (and record sales) from her heartbreak with high profile dudes like John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and god knows how many more. It’s gotta be pretty freaky for a guy to get called out in the form of a hit pop track…but then again, it might be kind of cool. Right? Like being part of an irritatingly catchy piece of history. VH1′s very own Kate Spencer was on the VMA red carpet and asked celebs to weigh in on whether or not they’d like to be the subject of a Taylor Swift breakup song!

Drag Race star RuPaul wasn’t too enthused at the idea, saying he’d rather be in “a Taylor Swift make-up song,” and fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff also wasn’t feeling it. “Too stressful. Seems really stressful. I like that song, but I don’t know if I’d want it to be about me.” Dan Reynolds from Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons seemed downright terrified at the thought! “I think that that’s every man’s biggest nightmare. Especially now,” he said. “She puts people on blast. She seems like a sweet girl but then she goes hard.”

Taylor Swift Gets Carried Away At The VMAs

Taylor Swift Performing At The VMAs

So we already know that Taylor Swift was one of the main reasons why McKayla Maroney was impressed at the VMAs last night. It doesn’t matter that the singer was very sadly, on our worst-dressed list for the night. But really, how couldn’t the gymnast not be impressed, especially with Taylor’s rousing performance of  her new single We Are Never Getting Back Together, which served as the closing performance of the show. BTW, Taylor was dressed like someone spending the weekend, in, say, Hyannis, Massachusetts, with short shorts, cheeky red moccasins and a red-and-white striped sailor’s top. Her new romance must have her in a really good mood as a lot of her performance focused on ariels. She was picked up by her squad of hunky male dancers while singing, and she also ended up diving into the audience and crowd surfing. Yeah, Taylor! We’ve put together a little gallery of her ecstatic, carried away moments so you can relive them.

Report: Did Rihanna And Chris Brown Really “Kiss” At The VMAs?

This Chris Brown-Rihanna saga’s never going to end is it. And since both of them were going to attend the MTV Video Music Awards, held last night, there was some serious anticipation about whether was something was going to go down. Over the past few months, all signs have led towards to some sort of a reunion, and not just a conciliation. Chris being there at Rihanna’s birthday party, albeit on the down-low. All the hoopla about the Chris-Drake fight over Ri-Ri. Yeah, yeah “allegedly” over Ri-Ri, but c’mon, we all know that it was about her. And let’s not forget Rihanna’s turn with Oprah, where she admitted she felt “protective” about him. Did they two really meet up before she headed to Italy on vacay? While that rumor will never be substantiated, who all here think it happened? Yeah, that’s what we though. Most of you do! That Rihanna-Chris collabo — there’s more to it, guys. We feel it. They’re inching towards a full-on public declaration of re-love. Hah.

Rihanna greets Chris Brown at the VMAs

Anyhoo, taking all of this into consideration, let’s get down to what happened at the VMAs last night. Rihanna was looking mighty-fine with her new hair and in a white gown that got her onto the best-dressed list for the night. Chris was looking dapper in a steel grey suit. They met. But were there fireworks? Well, that’s for you to decide. MTV has video of them meeting and of a kiss between the two — right in front of everyone. But we can’t tell, due to the angle, if it was a friendly peck hello, or something more passionate. What it does reveal though, is that these two have reached a place that’s more than just civilized. Rihanna looks really happy to see him. So, what gives? And what’s your take on the kiss?
