That’s a wrap on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards across the bridge in Brooklyn, where all of our favorite musical acts turned up for this year’s oversized show. Along with lots of must-see performances and amazing celebrity interactions to observe, your favorites got things started with a bang thanks to some hot red carpet dates.
Lady Gaga shared her special night with dear ol’ dad, while Ciara and boyfriend Future served serious old Hollywood glam, and Miley Cyrus and producer Mike WiLL Made It enjoyed a friends’ night out, where they couldn’t stop taking silly photos on the step and repeat. And Richard Simmons? He just wanted to kiss the hand of every beautiful woman that crosses his path. (Also, yes, he was there.) Whether they’re forever or just for the night, check out some of the hottest couples hitting the VMA red carpet in the gallery above.
