The MTV Video Music Awards are known for having one of the most varied guest lists in showbiz, creating mind-blowingly random Hollywood juxtapositions. Many unexpected duos are tapped to present awards together, and sometimes folks are feeling friendly and just want a picture with their secret celeb crush.These unexpected pairings sometimes could be the musical collaboration of our dreams, much like Lady Gaga and Cher appearing side by side (with a side of beef) back in 2010. Or they could be the nightmare we wish would end, like the legendary meeting of Kanye West and Taylor Swift in ’09. Who would have thought teen sweetheart Mandy Moore would want to be hugged up with the creepy Marilyn Manson? The VMAs have given us some insanely wonderful worlds colliding moments over the years, so we’ve made a gallery to celebrate our favorite. Head down bellow to check out our 20 Most Unexpected VMA Pairings of All Time. Let’s hope we can have another 50 Cent and Paris Hilton moment this Thursday!

Jessica Alba, whyyyyyyyyy? We understand that actors don’t have any control over the hairstyles their characters wear, but Alba’s bleached blond Sin City 2 look is making our retinas detach. “She got roots that Nancy,” the actress tweeted about her character, along with a photo of her hair in an ombre in-between phase. Later Alba post another photo of her hair dyed completely blond, and it’s giving us fashion flashbacks to her peroxide locks in Valentine’s Day. If you’ve seen that movie, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Then, as in now, light blond not Jessica Alba’s best look, but she’s nowhere near the only celeb whose bleached hair makes her look washed out rather than glammed up. From Lindsay Lohan to Victoria Beckham, Emma Stone to Angelina Jolie, a lot of famous ladies know blond is not always a girl’s best friend. Sometimes it just looks bleached.

We all know what a big deal the CFDA Awards are. It’s the Council of Fashion Designers of America panel, so their vote is important. The ceremony went down in New York, at the Lincoln Center, last night, and we had our eyes peeled for the best looks. And what we found surprised us because none of these ladies, as lovely as they are, are not found often on best-dressed lists. Other than Selita Ebanks. The supermodel could wear a burlap sack and look stunning. She wore a white form-fitting Herve Leger by Max Azria gown with metallic inserts and a matching clutch. Padma Lakshmi wore an incredible black and navy textured gown by Naeem Khan which had us floored. We also had Sophia Bush in a gorgeous leggy custom tangerine jersey gown by David Meister Signature with a Daniel Swarovski clutch and two-tone pumps. Julianne Hough took on a plunging neckline but still looked beautifully styled in Kaufman Franco Chinese red stretch-crepe gown. Lastly, there was Mandy Moore who looked statuesque in a creamy Lela Rose gown with embellished shoulders. Top points for the hot-pink lips! You can check out all the looks in the gallery below, but be sure to tell us what you think!
