Best and worst dressed at VMAs

Last night's VMAs hosted by British crazy Russell Brand weren't short on drama or dramatic fashions. The big themes of the night were the touching Michael Jackson tribute starring Janet Jackson and Madonna, Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech and the cast of New Moon with the amazing new trailer.

MTV Awards shows have always been a place where celebs take fashion risks and as usual some went too far (cough*Lady Gaga). Twilight's Ashley Greene served as the fashion correspondent on the red carpet.

Best dressed
-Taylor Swift. The classy award-winner arrived in a horse-drawn carriage in this gorgeous KaufmanFranco gown. I also love the simple up-do.

-Taylor Lautner. Twilight's Jacob Black looked handsome as he presented an award in a dapper grey Calvin Klein suit. His co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart skipped out on the red carpet but joined him in presenting the new trailer

-Madonna. She wore a chic and appropriate all-black ensemble and L'Wren Scott coat as she gave tribute to the King of Pop.

-Pink/Shakira. Unfortunately these two pop stars arrived in the same studded leather Balmain minidress. Lucky for them, it's a fab dress, and they both looked different in it. Pink paired hers with black pumps, while Shakira wore trendy thigh-high boots.

Worst dressed
-Lady Gaga. Oh, where to begin. Every outfit that this daring pop star wore kind of scared me. She somehow managed to hide part of her face in each by a lion mane/eskimo look, a face mask/neck brace (above in Jean Paul Gaultier), a red lace crown and even fake blood.

-Jennifer Lopez. I did not like Lopez's pink Louis Vuitton getup. The velvety looking top part looked out of place. It clashed with her Christian Louboutin lace shoes too. Her permanent holier-than-thou expression doesn't add much to the outfit either.

-Whitney Port. The City star missed the mark in a Christopher Kane skirt and bustier top. I also didn't like it with the ankle boots.

-Kanye West/Amber Rose. These two definitely win the worst dressed couple award. Kanye wore sloppy-looking acid washed jeans and a half-tucked black shiny shirt. His accessory of choice was a bottle of Hennessey. His girlfriend or muse or whatever wore a frightening tight snakeskin jumper.
