Lady Gaga swapped her purple Versace gown for a sparkly ensemble during her AMA performance of "Do What U Want" with R.Kelly. As the Marilyn Monroe to R.Kelly's JFK (yeah, R. Kelly played the president in this American-inspired performance because DUHHHH), Gaga began the performance in a sequined jacket, which she quickly removed to reveal a matching dress. Very ice skater chic: getting in the Winter Olympics mindset, eh, Gaga? ME TOO.

Rihanna

Ever underscoring that she's Princess Doing-Everything, Rihanna wore a Dominican doobie wrap and pins to accept her award for top R&B Female Artist—the hairy hair-cap most black women tend to reserve for the ride to the salon—paired with a goth mermaid look (custom Jean Paul Gaultier sequined-sweetheart bralette and matching mini cascaded with lace, BTW). The coiffure seems to be a deliberate accessory to the #ghettogoth steez she's been riding so hard lately (to the chagrin of Ghe20 Goth1k originator Venus X) and another entry in the recent pantheon of "hood accessories" incorporated into high fashion. (See: the proliferation of house slippers and socks in these streets, including Miley Cyrus, via Phoebe Philo.) Twitter was mostly beside itself, underscoring the importance of bringing visibility and power to every aspect of black hair, often immersed in politics. As writer and cultural critic Sydette Harry (@Blackamazon) tweeted, "@Rihanna is what happens when [West Indian women] get enough money to not be able to google a f*** to give. I.LIVE.FOR.IT."

OHHH. So, THAT'S what her cherry blossom mic was all about. Katy Perry opened the AMAs with a dramatic performance of her new single, "Unconditionally," and we're starting to get the impression that she's ~quite~ the film buff. I mean, her music video for the song was FILLED with movie refs and now this? Pass the popcorn, girl. In what appeared to be a direct nod to book-turned-movie, Memoirs of a Geisha, Perry wore a light pink flower-covered kimono (which matched her mic) and danced with a purple floral parasol (which matched the purple flowers in her hair). So much matching. The set was made to resemble Japan, with cherry blossom flowers falling from the sky throughout the duration of her performance.

Katy Perry was all KINDS of coordinated for her red carpet arrival at the 2013 American Music Awards. First of all, before the show she tweeted a photo of a cherry-blossom covered microphone and then she shows up with flowers all over her dress. Granted, the flora on her dress was roses, not cherry blossoms, but HELLO! They were still flowers, OK? Then, we noticed that her voluminous Oscar de la Renta gown, which she described as "polka dotted punk rock," also coordinated with her nails (polka dot) AND her giant statement accessory (a flower-shaped ring). #impressed

Beam me up, Miley! Miley Cyrus opened the 2013 MTV EMA by descending from outer space in a caged UFO contraption. The spherical spacecraft (which actually came from the Ziggo Dome ceiling, not space) spewed smoke and glowed with red and blue neon lights as Miley and her little lady co-pilot landed on stage. After they detached from their oxygen tubes and astronautical helmets (#spacesafety because we've all seen Gravity by now), Miley left the comfort of her in-flight leather barcalounger and immediately got to twerking with darkly-shrouded, disc-headed aliens to the tune of "We Can't Stop."

Katy Perry's 2013 MTV EMA performance of "Unconditionally" included two looks: human maypole and suit of mirrors. Katy kicked off the performance covered in strips of purple, blue, and pink cloth, which the dancers below her intertwined. The result was, essentially, a brightly colored cocoon. Katy then shed the cocoon to emerge as a mirror-encrusted butterfly, and once she was free of acting as the pole for the #latepass May Day celebrants below her, she began floating through Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome, reflecting light.

The MTV EMA have been host to some amazing fashion, from Selena Gomez's parade of host outfits to Lady Gaga's Paco Rabanne moment to a slew of other memorable performance looks, and tonight's Amsterdam red carpet was no exception. Here are our favorite 2013 MTV EMA looks from the step-and-repeat!

IGGY AZALEA IN DILEK HANIF COUTURE

Talk about a knockout! Iggy Azalea is slaying it in all directions with this Dilek Hanif Couture gown from the Turkish designer's Spring 2011 collection. (Side bar: exactly how many years have to pass before you can consider something "vintage"?) That asymmetrical neckline. Those side cut-outs. The red platform accent heels. THOSE MASSIVE NAVEL-HIGH SLITS. *pauses to catch breath* Also, a little P.S.A. from us and The New Classic herself: she is, in fact, wearing underwear.

Harry Styles won the 2013 MTV EMA for "Best Look," going up against Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Rita Ora. We weren't at all surprised by Harry's win because, well, DUH. Let's take a look at what helped him pull off this win, shall we?

HE EMBRACES BOLD PRINTS

Harry is pretty consistent pants-wise (hullo, ripped black jeans), but shirt-wise, he isn't afraid to dabble in prints. In fact, he likes that Burberry heart print so much he wore it twice.

While it's no RedFoo-inspired Speedo, Miley Cyrus' 2013 MTV EMAs red carpet ensemble is just as head-turning. Miley took a new spin on those throwback '90s photo screenprint t-shirts she's been known to rep, turning what was likely an East-meets-West The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac tee into a halter neck dress.

Taylor Swift on the CMA Awards red carpet.

At first glance, the sophisticated red gown Taylor Swift wore to this year's CMA Awards seemed pretty predictable. I mean, let’s be honest: she’s been known to rock full-skirted, feminine frocks a time or two (or ten) and this Elie Saab piece ~appears~ to be no different.

The ornate, crystal detailing, the demure neckline, the ample train—don’t get us wrong, the girl looks gorgeous. But it feels a little safe, no? NOPE. Further inspection reveals a dramatic, plunging back with The Most Perfect gathers that accentuate her tiny waist. Swoooooon. Taylor accessorized the business-in-front-party-in-the-back gown with stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Jimmy Choo heels and a delicate chignon. Needless to say, we’re into it. (And hello! It’s red. Because, you know, Red. Heh. *sigh*)

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