One of the more hilarious aspects of the deeply stupid fallout from Miley Cyrus‘ VMAs performance is the amount of hand ringing, pearl clutching and declarations that “the world is going to end” from otherwise reasonable people–as if Miley Cyrus is the first pop star to behave in a sexual manner.

Topic: MTV Video Music Awards
A long time ago, this would have passed for “pretty racy.” In 2013, however, a sheer plunge to the navel is kind of standard. If you can’t see vagina, it’s barely news. More
The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were a cornucopia of bad fashion decisions–but the beauty decisions were a little more even-handed. Check out great hair, great makeup, terrible false lashes and awesome butts from pop music’s luminaries. More
Last night, the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were live from Brooklyn–and boasting one of the most awesomely bad red carpets we’ve seen since the last MTV-branded awards ceremony. Here are the pieces we picked up, featuring Coco Rocha, Grimes, Allison Williams and like three other people. More
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! It’s the best of times, it is the worst of times.
This year, the ceremony’s in Brooklyn at the massive Barclay’s Center (above)–and the big draw is that almost-certainly-happening ‘NYSNC reunion. But even if they don’t break out the marionette strings, there will be plenty of other absurd outfits to enjoy.
We’ll be updating throughout the night as photos come in, so refresh early and refresh often. Tomorrow, we’ll round them up in (relatively) best and (definitively) worst lists. More
Dressing (or being dressed) for the red carpet is no easy feat. Making sure your look is creative enough to get attention and classic enough to avoid the critics is rarely accomplished, and once you have the look down, the make-up is a whole other story. It’s easy to become, as Cher Horowitz preaches, a “Monet”: “From far away it’s ok, but up close it’s a big old mess!”
This year’s VMAs and Emmy‘s brought a whole slew of red carpet disasters and show stoppers, but it was the make-up that made the the look a masterpiece or a, well…Monet. Trend-setting makeup expert COVERGIRL is helping cover the best red carpet looks from the VMAs during their ClevverTV Fashion Faceoff: Red Carpet Edition, and calling out the stars who rocked their looks this year. Let’s take our own look at what happened in the beauty department at these fall awards shows. More
Here’s one of the more confusing events in all of red carpet land: the Billboard Awards. It’s not quite the Grammys, but it’s still a step up from the MTV Video Music Awards (purely in terms of fashion). It’s attended by a diverse group (Kris Kristofferson was there, FYI), but the usual suspects show up, too: Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, Justin Bieber, etc. Also, everyone looked the same.

Have you checked out our galleries of the (comparatively) best dressed and the just outlandishly awful worst dressed at the MTV Video Music Awards last night? Well, if you haven’t gotten your fill of super tight sparkly mini dresses, here’s a bonus for you: the after party looks. Surprisingly, they were a little more subdued. ++Katy Perry’s wardrobe changes. More
The 2011 VMA’s have happened to us. I tried to be positive and root out the best dressed. Here is a gallery of everyone else, from the ridiculous to the intensely ugly to the simply fame whoring. Hope you like sparkly silver sausage casing, because everyone (Demi Lovato, JWoww, Vanessa Hudgens, Kim Kadrashian) all got together before the ceremony and coordinated their outfits. …When you’re finished, you can also check out the after party looks.

The VMA’s are reliable for two things: bad fashion and terrible medleys. This morning, I picked up the pieces and tried to decipher who among attendees I could deem “best dressed.” The following gallery depicts my psychological deterioration. If you have a little more time to spare, here are all the nominees for worst dressed and here are some looks from the after party. More
The MTV Video Music Awards last night were a whirlwind. No, literally. The white carpet was like a wind tunnel — hair was getting blown this way and that, and most celebs shuffled down the press line with goosebumps, clutching their clutches tightly to their bodies as if they alone would hold in their body heat.
But we were troopers, and despite the fact that we are not necessarily the best photographers in the world, we got some good action shots and found out some serious scoop on our favorite reality stars. The theme of the evening was black and gold, so you’ll note that anyone starring in an MTV show is rocking the combination. Some of our favorite dish from the evening: More
So, wow. We all heard Britney Spears would be back at the MTV Video Music Awards, and yes, I’ll admit, I figured she’s resurrect her “train wreck” status with gusto. But… She looks freaking fabulous! (Did I just say that … More
