Katy Perry, in Elie Saab, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, in Emilio Pucci and Taylor Swift in a J. Mendel suit and Tom Ford heels surprised us last night on the red carpet for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards in really elegant looks. We're so used to trendy and gimmicky getups that we had to rub our eyes to make sure we really watching the VMAs. In sharp contrast Katy and Miley (sporting her new radical 'do) went dark in chic evening gowns with intricate detailing, while Rihanna and Taylor kept in bright in crisp white looks that showed off their curves.
What did you think of last night's looks at the VMAs? Do you think all the polished and elegant looks is a new trend we'll see in VMAs to come, or just a passing trend that is as fleeting as an artist keeping their spot in an MTV video countdown.
