One of our favorite award show red carpets is the MTV Video Music Awards, which never disappoints in bringing a variety of fashion hits, flops and risks like no other event.
So many celebs at the VMAs subscribe to the notion of "go big or go home" and the styles are usually a feast (or faux pas) for the eyes.
Picking the 2013 VMA best dressed and worst dressed is no easy task, but we're up for the challenge!
Check out our picks and let us know what your favorite (and least favorite) looks were.
Worst Dressed: Katy Perry had a lot going on with her dress, sporting a leopard-print (roar!) body hugging turtleneck encrusted with loads of golden bling. Spot off! We loved, loved, loved her hair and makeup though.
Best Dressed: Ellie Goulding wowed in her gorgeous studded gown, showing off plenty of leg and a super sexy hairstyle. This is the kind of rock-inspired fashion risk we love to see at the VMAs.
Worst Dressed: Ariana Grande was as cute as ever, but her mega flirty floral mini dress kind of underperformed in terms of red carpet wow factor. Ariana played it a little too safe.
Best Dressed: Snooki has honestly never looked better. We loved her slinky black dress that combined a classy floor-length gown with a top that revealed plenty of skin. Her red hair even matched the VMA carpet!
Worst Dressed: Miley Cyrus went with black hot pants and a bare midriff (tribute to Britney?), but the look fell as flat as...her abs. She revved it up with some blingy jeweled detailing and topped it all off with a horn-inspired hairdo.
Best Dressed: Lady Gaga didn't arrive in an egg or wear a meat dress, and we loved her understated red carpet look. Gaga wore a figure flattering floor-length black dress with a pretty train and floppy bow at the waist.
Worst Dressed: Oh, Lil' Kim, where do we begin with this fashion nightmare? The skintight outfit, the giant shiny belt buckle, or the outrageously horrific shoes? There's just so much wrong here.
Best Dressed: Naya Rivera is a fashion goddess, showing off her excellent taste again and again on the red carpet. She didn't let us down at the VMAs, taking the black dress and dialing it up a notch.
Worst Dressed: Taylor Swift channeled old Hollywood in a jewel-toned dress that hugged her curves and showed off plenty with the plunging neckline--but we think she missed the mark given the less formal vibe at the VMAs. Her vintage hairstyle missed the mark too.
Best Dressed: Selena Gomez looked sleek and gorgeous in her long dark blue gown, with sparkly detailing and yes, a little sexy element at the top with a revealing peek. We couldn't get over her amazing hair and makeup too. Beautiful!
Worst Dressed: Rita Ora's black and white dress with the mega feathery train was just...no. There was so much plumage, it required a handler to chase her around and fan it out on the red carpet.
Best Dressed: Ciara flaunted a gorgeous balance of covering up strategically while showing plenty of skin beneath with sheer material. The feathers at the bottom and beautiful romantic hair style were icing on the cake.
