While some were eager to find out which celebrity was going to win the "Best Video" or "Song of the Year" Award, most were obsessed with what the celebrities were going to wear on the red carpet! It's no surprise that Nicki Minaj was on the "Worst Dressed" list this year -- as she is every year -- but some celebrities shocked us by doing a complete Fashion 180, as they finally made it to the "Best Dressed" list. And here are the nominees:
5) Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift looked edgy, for the first time ever! She wore a pantsuit by J. Mendel and looked "bad" with her red lipstick and dark eyeliner. To go for an even edgier look, she had bangs. We usually expect the country girl look from America's known sweetheart, but this year, she totally surprised us. Nice going, Taylor!
We never know what to expect from Pink, but we did not expect this. In fact, we didn't expect her to make a comeback at all, but she definitely shocked us when she rolled down the red carpet in this metallic, beaded gown by Stella McCartney. The gown toned down her slightly muscular body, and made her look girly as opposed to her always looking like a tom-boy.
3) Miley Cyrus
Despite the fact that many criticized Miley Cyrus for her new haircut, it worked well with her black dress. With an all blonde short haircut and dark gown designed by Emilio Pucci, we could no longer see Cyrus as the little girl that we once saw her as. She has definitely grown into a fine young woman, and by the look of her outfit, we can see that her taste in fashion is also going in the right direction.
2) Katy Perry
All I can say about Katy Perry's outfit is WOW! She usually goes for the playful look, that involves shorts and colorful wigs, but she took a different route for this year's VMA's. She wore a gown made by Elie Saab with a major train, and her decision to keep her hair simple didn't take away from the elegance of the dress.

Rihanna's fashion sense is always on top, which is why it was no surprise as to why she's number 1...AGAIN, on this year's "best dressed" list. Unlike the other celebrities, her gown was custom made by her personal stylist, Adam Selman. Some were afraid as to how her new haircut would look, but it definitely complements the dress. If Rihanna continues to put faith in her stylist, then we can put faith that she will continue to be number 1 on the fashion charts.
