The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were full of moments that left me personally shaking my head in disbelief (ahem, Miley Cyrus) and while this sort of thing is typical of the VMAs, I was pleasantly surprised by the big time fashion on the red carpet.
Selena Gomez proved that she is a budding fashionista in a sophisticated Atelier Versace gown with a sheer bustier and thigh-high slit.
Girls actress, Allison Williams looked as polished as ever in a lace long-sleeved Valentino mini dress and Christian Louboutin shoes.
Shailene Woodley showed off her newly cropped locks and enviable body in an Emilio Pucci, Resort 2014 ensemble.
Ciara was pure perfection in a super sheer Givenchy gown with crystal embellishments and a feather hemline.
Taylor Swift channeled old Hollywood glamour in a plunging Herve Leger gown. Her dramatic chanteuse hairdo and bold red lip was almost as dramatic as her several blows to ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
