We don't know if MTV gave the celebs strolled down their Winter Wonderland-esque white carpet a heads up, but some seemed to take it into consideration. There was plenty of all-black (the better to contrast with) and sparkle (see: Audrina Patridge's entire look).
The cast of "Jersey Shore" appeared more tan than usual - guess this is a special occasion - and the cast of "The Hills" - including the sparkliest of them all, Audrina - looked great. But the award for "best white carpet pop of color" should definitely go to Rosario Dawson.
Who were your favorites on the red - er, excuse us, white - carpet?
I don't like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, honestly.
This years MTV Music Awards STUNK, STUNK, STUNK. Chelsea was boring as hell and her jokes were dull as a butter knife. WHY they chose her to host the awards is beyond me. In addition, Justin Bieber's FAKE-singing was SAD, SAD, SAD. The boy chose to lip-sync than actually SING is an insult. Taylor Swift is boring as hell. She looks and does the same thing on every music awards. CHANGE IT UP TAYLOR!!! The stage design was about the only COOL thing about the show, everything else was PREDICTABLE and utterly BORING, BORING, BORING!!
I'm so over lady gaga.. others have done the stock factor.. nothing new with her..
Hey out there remember the good old days of Michel Jackson , Madona exetra now its time for Lady gaga to show up
sit back and enjoy the ride of radio GAGA.
Drake looked so handsome!!!!!
um, HELLO, good try Ke$ha but Debbie Harry did the trash bag thing more than two decades ago
wow, its really amazing how old some of you people must be, or seriously sucking when it comes to fashion, style and basic coolness.
Gaga is an artist in every sense of the word. She is amazing. And her most beautiful accessory was the brave soldiers she brought with her. She is truly awesome.
Some of these people I never heard of. That Bieber dude looks ridiculous. Although, Katy Perry is cute, there is something funny looking about her face. Snookie is gross, sorry to her fans but it's true.
I'm not really much of the whole Gaga and Beiber bum lover (I'm a screamo lover), and I wasn't impressed by MTV's music choice either. Gaga looked like a rooster, I like Hayley in general but what she was wearing was..eek. Beiber CAN'T sing, not to be mean, alright he sucks. Everyone's outfits were screwed, it was seriously pathetic.
TRAVIE MCCOY DRESSED LIKE A 1940 AIRPLANE PILOT
PEN BADGLEY ONE WORD TACKY
KATY PERRY LOOKED LIKE A SKATING OUTFIT
DRAKE DRESSED LIKE HE IS 40 YRS OLD
JASON DERULO DRESS LIKE HE JUST GOT OFF A BIKE
LADY GAGA CAME DRESSED LIKE A ROOSTER
CHER CAME AS A 64YR.OLD IN A OUTDATED OUTFIT
NICOLE POLIZZI DRESS HAD TOO MUCH GOING ON
Snookie needs a mustache
who cares about these people,they do what they want anyways,rules are different for them.
Katy Perry was a doll; Usher is always pure class and wow Selena Gomes looked gorgeous! For others – can you just leave the blue jeans home one night?
Justin Bieber is looking more girlie every day. Why on earth did he wear such over-sized shades (picture 2)? Let the girls wear the over the top sunglasses – they look silly enough – but for a guy to wear them....just too much for me. He sure is trying to look 'pretty' and just isn't helping his masculinity at all with wardrobe like this. And what's with the peace sign? Pale white child looks ridiculous when attempting to look "cool".
I guess i'm way 2 old, i remember when it was all about the music videos
Don't any of you children remember Cher and her outlandish outfits? Lady Gaga is nothing more than a cheap imitation of the original.
Lady Gaga always looks like trash. Eww....
lady gaga looks awful.
Lady gaga is the hottest of them all. It really is sad that a dude with adams apple can be the hottest chick there.
Please inform a non music fan who happened to see this article: Is Justin Bieber male or female?
I love how the retards of the world still come to CNN.com to post absurd things like "Gaga dresses weird" (no effin sh!t you short bus'ers) or "Gaga has no talent" (i'm sorry, what you have won in life? other than maybe a pie eating contest? But lets be honest – you probably would lose at that too).
And /facepalm if you think the dress was MADE OF *****RAW MEAT*****.
Except for Selena Gomez and Audrina Partridge the rest of them looked like bums off the street.
Young musicians and artists once were creative and original.
That was such a long time ago, now.
'she looks like she doesn't think in the morning when she gets up' is helly funny! Good one (: azsent.com | twitter.com/joAmoDaDon
Chelsea is uggggg
Hey guys, will you visit SaveStan.ORG a friend of mine with 4 young babies is fighting for his life…… thanks.
eeeek yall uglyyyyy
u guyz hate on snookie cuz she actually got famous and money maybe for nuttin but she actually got money
ur a hater u prolly luk like a fat girl wit pimples!
Bieber, with those sunglasses, looks like a 3 year old trying to pretend he's a big boy.
Nancy Pelosi looked HOT !!! The botox is working........ Shake it baby, shake it .
MTV should play music videos & give us more programming like Cribs ... shows that introduce us to the NON-TABLOID private lives of our favorites ... and dump all the trash programming. The VMS's reminded me how few pop stars can actually sing real musical notes and how many are untalented posers who do nothing but strut around a stage in clown costumes.
So when was the last time MTV actually played a music video?
Music is dead. If you can call it music anymore. Nothing but Rap Sh!t and Dumb A$$ Bubble Gum Pop.
Agreed. What happened to the real music and musicians? Original tracks and beats. If you remake a cut it should be better not worse, and please stop sampling. Come up with your own work. What happened to the days when artists had to really earn their keep.
Taylor Swift sang about mistakes, Lady Gaga dressed like one – http://www.onelineheadline.com
Only about 20% of the people in the pics above even purport to make music.
Half of these people look creepy, other half like cardboard cutouts that you'd have in your car waving at people.
Was the fashion meant for the 15 and under crowd? IF SO, then I understand why they all looked way out there! The gal in the "trash bag" dress looked the best....and I didn't even recognize Rihanna, her disguise was very convincing and ridiculous as always....this should've been called the Lady/Sir GaGa awards....it must've killed Chelsea not being able to cut loose, on most of these people...I LOVE HER SHOW!!!!
Self important tools.
I remember when people... Hmmm well i guess I'm too old to remember.
drake is so hott!
Let's all sit around the tube and watch The Sound of Music...
I thought Roseanne Barr was the best dressed.
Is it me or did the ladies look like ladies and the guys look like bums! Don't they have suits or tux?
kind of agree with you on the guys they could have done somthing better
LOL! Hey what do you want, M & M (or however it's spelled) looked like he had a new or at least clean black hoddi on and Kanye a red PIMP suit.... LOL!!!!!!!! I agree with you except for that guy with the Grey Leather Jacket, he looked GREAT ......
I miss the MUSIC
I think that lady gaga dresses cool.
This is nothing more except then a cheap advertising attempt: http://www.criminalcustomz.com , btw, snooki, id hit it!
These dregs of society are suppose to be stars? I feel sorry for the human race!
All of this negativity amases me. Wow. Let's not be jealous of the Jersey Shore crew. Would you want to be famous for your own stupidity? And guys, it should be two in the pink and none in the stink... Unless Daddy really wants it.;)
Mtv video awards????? Where are these so called videos and who plays them???
Wow, Snooki looked HORRIBLE.
But I was really liking what Katy Perry wore! She looked fanatastic, as always. Ke$ha looked trashy... nothing new there.
And I really liked Selena Gomez's dress. It was really different, I liked it a lot.
Snooki a Star, what is wrong with you CNN, she is an uneducated trashy low life, come-on CNN . And third in the line-up WOW
Not impressed with todays music anymore. Its loosing direction at an alarming pace. No morals, and no soul!
And plus they suck. No talent.
Good music is out there and still being made. You just have to look at other venues, not MTV or the radio, to find the good stuff.
You are right.... and no dignity at all. Thanks for comment.
Why are people like the cast of Jersey Shore even considered celebraties?
Agree....a bunch of spoiled wannabee celebrities.
CIARA looked amazing with the black dress and also on the Mini Performance with N.E.R.D the matrix was awezome
Lady GaGa rocked the house in that McQueen gown.....
Dang! U guys r tripping! Chill!
katy perry looked wildly hot in her outfit. i was thinking like bad garage sale outfit for rhianna. the group "thirty seconds to bars" has a cool name. mostly great clothes on all the heads. but i must give kudos to madonna who had the sense to not barge in like cher who was making a last gasp stab at yute.
It's "30 Seconds to MARS", not "Bars", not "Mars Bars". :)
How old is Cher ?? Chelsea Handler looked good in her dresses but Cher blew her away in hers.....
Yall triping & haters! How about jus emjoyn the show!
i really loved the show. but i have to say that cher left me scarred. did i mention also scared. i am believing it would have been easier on the eyes to see shamu the whale in spandex.
kujo-grow up! who r u tryin 2 impress anyway? or r u hoping 2 shock every1 with how vile u r? yr just pathetic & boring & im positive the only action u get is from yr own hand. f'n sad.
Chelsea was great! Loved tha outfits! Lady gaga : awesome as ever!
Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine) looked absolutely gorgeous, IMO.
TrailorTRASH stop with the CAPS you annoying loser!
Two in the coin slot, one in the balloon knot.
Chelsea's outfits were hot!

Roast beef curtins are the best!
Loved the curtin show
Ke$ha! Love her trash bag dress and long braid!
I just noticed that her dress is made out of trash bags. lol That's cool.
MTV=Music Television...i dont ever recall there being music played on MTV for them to give out video awards..MTV should rename itself to RSTV..Reality Show Television because that's all i ever see as i'm flipping past it..and yes..flippin past it..i've never stopped to watch anything on it..maybe it could be CTV for Crap Television
I remember when MTV actually played videos.
Do you also remember when MTV wasn't a beacon of pop culture and instead catered to the fringe? Me neither! Maybe the MTV from your past wasn't more real or down to Earth? Maybe it's always been about pop stars and the highschool/college demographic /-5 years of age. Maybe the fondness you have for the past is tied to it's association to your youth?
Chelsea looked great, but not that funny except for the opening. HATE JERSEY SHORE PEOPLE WISH THEY WOULD SHRIVELL UP ON THE TANNING BEDS AND GO AWAY. I was not empressed this year.
I think Lady Gaga is a very unique singer, sometimes to wild, but she's the best right now! Love you Gaga!!!
i know right she's so cool
GaGa was so GORGEOUS tonight! I loved seeing her arriving in a McQueen number. It's just too bad she didn't perform... I'd have loved to have seen her sing more than a few bars. :)
Emma stone looked really cute. Snookie was way too tan. Lady Gaga... scary.
lady gaga scary..dont think so
Shouldnt you be in day care Po'sha?
FACT JUSTIN BIEBER , TOO MUCH BLACK, NO NEED FOR DOUBLE VEST...
wow do you always have to be a hater..just sayin get off of the riches
FACT: LADY GAGA LOOKS LIKE A ROOSTER ! AND YOU KNOW IT IS THE TRUTH!
no i think you looks like one...Hater
I hope she hates herself for the silly outfits she needs to prolong her time being relevant
Actually you just looks like a freak. Come on people the "oh that's just her style" is a crock, I mean that's like saying a bag lady looks awesome in rags because "oh it's just her style!"
She looks like she doesnt think in the morning when she gets up
she looks good the way garbage looks good.
A RAW MEAT DRESS....that's all I am gonna say! UGH!
I agree...that meat thing was fug! Besides The Beatles did that way back in aprox. 1966. I'm all for artistic expression. wear the meat dress, be a hot topic, but don't give me that load of BS explanation about " I am not a piece of meat... soon the only thing we'll own is the meat on I bones" blah blah blah. Its BS, its total faux semiotic post modernish crap. go pedle it somewhere else...like the local food market.
uhhh well that's her stlye so get over it!
Chelsie looked very hott!
Yes, she needs a lot of botox ....... she looks as hot as a chihahua
Lady Gaga looked awesome, as usual. Emma Stone looks sassy.
She looks good the way garbage looks good.
Why did Lady Gaga wear a liver on her head?
Chelsie looked hott!
No, she didn't.
She is an old hag.
