So the MTV Video Music Awards went down last night…and I slept through it. But you must understand, I tried. I tried to stay up for programming but time difference is a bastard. While it was only a good ol’ Sunday in America, airtime for us here the UK was at ungodly hour:( Well, thank God for catch up TV. I hear there’s a lot of bits that made moms cringe. Like this bit- miley cyrus and robin thicke gif

But let’s just get into the fashion first shall we? Ciara turned it up with rapper boyfriend Future. She donned an ethereal feathery sheer Givenchy nude number. Divine. She kept her makeup and footwear in the same flesh tone hue. ciara and futureciara

Selena Gomez slayed in a Versace creation. Her dress boasts a lingerie bustier and thigh-high slit. Yasss! This is how sexy elegance is done. selena gomezKaty Perry showed off leg in an Emmanuel Ungaro leopard print dress with butterfly embellishments around her decolletage. She pulled this look off well I must say. katy perrykaty perry mtv vmarita oraRita Ora stole the night as she channeled Beyonce  best look of the night as she strutted the red carpet in this Alexandre Vauthier dress. The thigh-high slit feature of the dress gave us a peak at her toned legs. I love her haircut. And who else is loving her face without that signature red lip?! She looks fabulous. Best she’s looked in a while really. Go Rita:) rita ora mtv vmarita orarita ora nude makeup mtv vmarita orarita ora iggy azalea

Taylor Swift totally, like totally, looked different in a navy bandage dress. She went for retro Hollywood glam with her hair. She looked demure.

Miley Cyrus and her tongue were at the event in full flesh. She was clad in a Dolce and Gabbana off-the-shoulder crop-top and high-waist leggings embellished with  colorful gemstones. She gave to her look with double mini-buns and Giuseppe Zanotti peeptoes. miley cyrus mtv vmas 2013miley cyrus mtv vma 2013miley at mtv vmamileyRihanna came in through the back door in her jeans and a t-shirt. Her face looked beat as always.  rihanna mtv vmarihanna mtvRihannaShe added a grill for good measure. rihanna mtv vma 2013

Jordin Sparks and her boo Jason Derulo were also in tow. Jordin showed of her hard-earned bod in a white crop top and zippered skirt in white. She accessorized with barely there sandals. Love the look but it looks slightly uncomfy around the waist. Jason Derulo looked nice.
