It’s time once again for the greatest red carpet of all–no, not the Oscars, not the Met Gala, but the MTV Video Music Awards. And why is it the greatest? Because it replaces all the pomp and circumstance of those other red carpet spectacles with more shameless fameballing, astonishingly tacky minis, ridiculous costumes, novelty hats, ornamental canes and so forth–sometimes even capes!
