The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards brought stars together from all corners of the music and fashion industries. The red carpet walk was a visual feast, with some stars wearing designer gowns (Ciara in Givenchy!), while others went for a more low-key look, such as Jared Leto, who rocked a leather jacket and combat boots! Herewith, our top ten favorite looks from the evening.

1. Lady Gaga In Alexander McQueen
Lady Gaga paid tribute to Alexander McQueen, the British designer who sent her clothes for her "Bad Romance" video, by wearing a gown from his fall 2010 collection. The red, green, and gold piece looked royal on Lady Gaga, and the head piece was the perfect finishing touch!

2. Lady Gaga In Giorgio Armani
Lady Gaga looked DIVINE in this voluminous black dress, which had a plunging necklace and full leather skirt. Also, check out that matching spiked black headpiece! Designer Giorgio Armani custom-created the look for the pop star, and you can get a peak at what the outfit looked like before it was made for Lady Gaga here!

3. Jared Leto In Leather And Combat Boots
We know we're not supposed to fall for bad boys, but how can we help ourselves when Jared Leto shows up in this gray leather jacket worn over black jeans and combat boots? It's pitch perfect for the recent fall weather, and we'd be happy if we could cozy up next to this guy.

Fashion is supposed to be fun. But sometimes, celebrities and musicians can take it to another level — an OUTRAGEOUS level, which is one of the best parts of the show! Check out the top 10 most outrageous outfits from last night's 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. See the list below!

1. Lady Gaga in Franc Fernandez
Lady Gaga closed the show in a MEAT dress that reminded us of artist Mark Ryden's "The Meat Show." To say the outfit was attention-grabbing would be an understatement. We couldn't stop starting at it! The pop singer sure knows how to steal the show with her sartorial choices.

2. Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" Outfit
We thought we were experiencing déjà vu when we saw Cher come on stage in the sheer, black number! It was a total throwback to the video for her classic hit, and we applaud Cher for still being brave enough to flaunt her fab figure!

When the worlds of style and music collide at an event like the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, there is bound to be an explosion of trends and fashion statements. And tonight, the trends hit hard! The ladies loved bright blue dresses (Rosario Dawson, Miranda Cosgrove, and Snooki) and metallic shifts (hello, Audrina Patridge, Stephanie Pratt, and Lo Bosworth!). Meanwhile, the boys looked dapper in head-to-toe black (we're talking about you, Drake, Usher, and Justin Bieber). Elsewhere, we saw a TON of black-and-white outfits, like Katy Perry in Marchesa, Jersey Shore star Sammi "Sweetheart" in Bebe, and Ashley Greene in Giambattista Valli. Plus, sporty leather jackets were super popular with guys such as Justin Timberlake and Penn Badgley. And there are plenty more trends, too! To see all of the top VMA red carpet trends, click here.

The stars of The Hills seem to always know how to stand out among a crowd. And tonight, Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, and Lo Bosworth shined on the red carpet of the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in gorgeous metallic dresses. Stephanie Pratt wore a sleeveless, floor-length, V-neck dress by Nicole Miller that was had multi-colored beading over a beige background. Meanwhile, Audrina Patridge opted for silver, silver, and MORE silver! She picked a sparkly Isaac Mizrahi mini and cinched it in with a matching Judith Leiber belt. And check out those studded Balmain heels! Gushworthy. And finally, Lo Bosworth picked a one-shoulder gold Gabriela Cadena dress and wore it with strappy black sandals. We love the way she added some glam to her look by pulling back her hair and wearing dangly earrings. But who looked best?

+ Who wore metallic best? Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, or Lo Bosworth?

Lady Gaga just picked up a statue at the MTV Video Music Awards for best female video, and in her acceptance speech, she gave a HUGE thank-you to fashion designer Alexander McQueen for sending her the amazing clothes for the video. Lady Gaga also took her red carpet walk in an elaborate Alexander McQueen gown. Check out the video below!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand are ALL about the PDA, so it only made sense for Katy Perry to show up at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with her fiance's image painted on her nails, right? Yes, you read that right. Katy Perry wore a Russell Brand manicure!! The lovebirds first hooked up about a year ago at the VMAs, so could Katy Perry's manicure be a nod to their anniversary? We're not sure, but that'd be a pretty CUTE gesture.

+ Do you like Katy Perry's manicure? Would you wear your man's face on your nails?

Who says you have to spend a ton of cash to get a great dress? Not Jersey Shore star Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, who walked the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in a $139 Bebe sequin and lace one-sleeve number! The pretty pattern and texture of the dress is so fresh! Plus, we love that Sammi kept her look sleek with classic black peep-toe pumps, and accessorized with a small, gold clutch and simple bracelet. Sammi looks so mature and pulled together, but she still showed off her Jersey roots with a poof in her hair. We adore this side of her!!

+ Do you like Sammi's dress—yes or no?

We're dying to see what all the ladies will don on tonight's red carpet, but we were especially excited to see what supermodel Coco Rocha would wear to tonight's Video Music Awards. Of all the ladies walking the fashion red carpet, Coco Rocha has had the most experience with fabulous clothes, having appeared on the cover of every major fashion magazine and in a ton of designer advertising campaigns, too. Coco Rocha's even missing New York Fashion Week to host's "Red Carpet Report" tonight—talk about dedication!!

So what did Coco Rocha end up wearing? A black Zac Posen dress with ruffly straps. Well, OF COURSE she did! After all, Coco Rocha has walked Zac Posen's fashion show every season, and she even wed hubby James Conran last month in a Zac Posen gown that fanned at the bottom. Coco Rocha's ties to the designer run deep.

The V-neck, floor-length gown (which fanned a little at the bottom just like her wedding dress!) showed off Coco Rocha's gorgeous neckline, which the supermodel played up by sweeping her wavy hair back into a loose bun and wearing sparkly, dangly earrings. Coco Rocha kept her makeup simple with a gorgeous berry lipstick, which is SO. IN. for fall. By keeping her makeup and accessories low-key, Coco Rocha really let her beautiful dress stand out. We think the supermodel looks absolutely stunning, and thank you, Coco Rocha, for showing us that basic black NEVER has to be boring.

+ Tell us, do you like Coco Rocha's look?

The Hills star Audrina Patridge chose a sparkly Isaac Mizrahi dress with spaghetti straps to the Video Music Awards and accesorized with an equally glam Judith Leiber belt and Jacob and Co. jewels. But the real kicker? Her KILLER diamond Balmain strappy sandals!! And then we remembered that this wasn't the first time Audrina Patridge wore silver to an MTV awards show. Back in June, she rocked another silver frock by CD Greene to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and paired it with studded, strappy Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Does Audrina Patridge have a go-to color for MTV awards shows? We think so!

+ Which silver dress do you like better on Audrina Patridge — VMAs or Movie Awards?

Ke$ha performs at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards Concert to Benefit LIFEbeat on September 11.

Last night, Ke$ha took the stage during the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards Concert to Benefit LIFEbeat in West Hollywood. Ke$ha wore a black sleeveless shirt, gold undies, and fishnets for the performance, and tied an American flag handkerchief into her glitter diapers. And to no one's surprise, Ke$ha showered herself with body glitter to finish the look, including gold glitter stars around her eyes. Earlier this month, the three-time VMA-nominated singer told us that she slathers glitter on herself "because it just pops! It just looks great!" Well, we can't say we disagree.

+ Do you like Ke$ha's outfit?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
