Manicure alert! Ke$ha and porn star Jenna Jameson both showed up to the Video Music Awards with the same cheetah-print foil pasted onto their fingertips. (It looks like they are Minx nails!) We know Ke$ha always loves animal-inspired things because she named her first album "Animal," and he even played off her colorful manicure with equally colorful gigantic stone rings. As for Jenna Jameson — well, apparently, she has some animal instincts in her as well.

Lady Gaga's meat dress was by far the most outrageous fashion moment of the 2010 Video Music Awards last night. It was her third and final outfit change of the night (she wore it to accept her Moonman for Video Of The Year), and definitely the most insane. But the bigger question is — was Lady Gaga's meat dress real?

The answer is YES.

The designer behind the dress is Franc Fernandez. And when we chatted with him this morning, he told us: "The dress is indeed real meat from my family butcher. Glad it went so well." Franc Fernandez showed off how he created the look on his blog this morning, and it's a work of art. (Lady Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, was the one who styled the look.)

So why meat? It's symbolic ...

On why Lady Gaga chose a meat dress, she told Ellen DeGeneres that it was a symbolic choice: "Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening ... If we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And I am not a piece of meat."

We caught up with Nicki Minaj's stylist, Niki Schwan, to find out the sweat, love, and last-minute changes that went into these looks. Read on for all the details! Read More...

Lady Gaga in Franc Fernandez and Mark Ryden's Incarnation painting.

Lady Gaga's third outfit of the night at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards was by far the most ... meaty. Literally. Lady Gaga wore a meat dress, hat, shoes, and purse by designer Franc Fernandez. What was Lady Gaga trying to tell us with this outfit, the look she wore when she proclaimed her next album title on the Video Music Awards stage, "Born This Way"? That the world treats her like a piece of meat? That she's the heartiest person in the whole room? That she could care less about PETA? This meat-as-art is an interesting perspective, one that we've seen before in artist Mark Ryden's work, who painted a picture named "Incarnation" of a girl wearing a meat dress that is similar to Lady Gaga's dress. Do you see the similarity?

One of Lady Gaga's three outfits at tonight's Video Music Awards included a voluminous black dress and matching spiked black headpiece. Well, here's the inside scoop: Designer Giorgio Armani custom-created the look for Lady Gaga's Video Music Awards appearance, and the label sent us a sketch of what the outfit looked like before it was made for Lady Gaga! Isn't it fabulous? The look is a bustier gown with a plunging neckline and a black leather long, full skirt. And her MTV Video Music Awards Moonman for Best Pop Video is definitely the perfect accessory!

Lady Gaga in Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, and a meat dress.Photo: PictureGroup

Lady Gaga blew us away tonight with her THREE wardrobe changes at the 2010 Video Music Awards. First, she walked the red/white carpet wearing an outfit from the Alexander McQueen fall 2010 with matching Alexander McQueen shoes, which she also wore in her "Bad Romance" video. Then, when Lady Gaga accepted her award for Best Pop Music Video, she changed into a black dress custom-designed by Giorgio Armani. Finally, to accept her award for Video Of The Year, Lady Gaga wore a meat dress by Franc Fernandez (similar to the one she wore on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan), which left her backside bare. But which one of these Lady Gaga looks was your favorite? Ours has to be the Alexander McQueen dress. It reminded us of her "Bad Romance" video and it was absolutely breathtaking. But what do you think?

+ Which Lady Gaga Look did you like best — red, black, or meaty?

Jersey Shore's Ronnie, Vinny, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

The Jersey Shore cast all looked like major STUNNERS tonight at the 2010 Video Music Awards. In fact, it looks like they just emerged from the spray tan booth — seriously, every single one of them had fresh-to-death tan, which really stood out against the white carpet. And they had some major moments: Snooki debuted a fresh new hairstyle — BANGS!, JWOWW added some red to her hair, and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola wore a one-shoulder dress from Bebe that cost $139. Meanwhile, the boys — Ronnie, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and Vinny — brought their A-game in sweet jackets (Vinny's was from Urban Outfitters), sunglasses, and fresh sneakers. Looks like the cast really went all out, don't you think?!

Lady Gaga has ARRIVED at the Video Music Awards! After weeks of anticipation of what the artist would wear to the Video Music Awards tonight, she revealed another amazing outfit on the Video Music Awards white carpet. Lady Gaga wore a long red gown by Alexander McQueen, with a long black tulle skirt giving it volume — a dress we first saw her wear in her Vanity Fair cover spread last month. She also wore a golden feather headdress, also by Alexander McQueen. This look is so epic, you need to take a closer look. Click here to see Lady Gaga's Video Music Awards outfit closer!

Hey there, fans of The Hills! Look who has descended upon New York Fashion Week! KRISTIN CAVALLARI. The 23-year-old attended her first fashion show of the season this morning (day three of NYFW) when she sat front row at the Jill Stuart show. She was in good company, too, seated with One Tree Hill actress Shantel VanSanten, socialites Dabney Mercer and Tinsley Mortimer, Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr, and actress Taryn Manning. Doesn't she look smashing?

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