You already knew Miley Cyrus would be making a 2013 VMA appearance, but we can finally tell you today that Billy Ray's little girl isn't just attending (as she has for so many years in the past), she's PERFORMING. That's right, Smilers. On Sunday, August 25, your supreme flaxen pixie-haired leader is joining the current line-up of Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy Perry, and also just-announced Robin Thicke, hitting the stage in honor of the Moonman and the year in music videos. We're fully aware that Miles can dress herself for her big VMA moment, but being that we spend 75% of our days online shopping, we figured we'd put our powers to good use and send a little unsolicited wardrobe advice her way. Y'know, just in case she needs it. In other words, we rounded up a few crop tops she might want to wear on stage.

One Direction

Take notes, boys. One Direction has just served up a catalogue's worth of model dude outfits for fall at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. We've watched this 5-piece boy band grow from meticulous color-coordination to the loose use of denim as a wardrobe unifier. This latest red carpet and stage showing, though? That's just exemplary laid-back guy styling at its best. Let's start with 1D's TCAs arrival. Every dude showed up in a pair of jeans of varying washes and silhouettes (stone-washed relaxed fit for Liam, dark resin and cuffed for Louis, white and tight for Zayn, vintage wash and slim fit for Niall, and basically painted-on for Harry). The guys' shoe game is out of this world, and almost every one of them wore an excellent transitional jacket, save Harry who chose instead to wear a collared shirt unbuttoned just below his diaphragm and a wide-brimmed felt hat. Very John Mayer, no?

A$AP Rocky

Everyone give up a slow clap for A$AP Rocky wearing old school Tommy Hilfiger on stage for the Wantagh, New York stop of his and Wiz Khalifa's Under The Influence Of Music tour. The fashion killa has made a name for himself as such by regularly sporting the flyest, most current threads like custom KTZ, Raf Simons, and Ann Demeulemeester just to name a few. For his run on Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour, he wore Hood By Air high-end streetwear hot off the runway on stage in almost every city (BTW, we hear you can win a free, Rocky-signed HBA shirt from VFiles *WINK*). But now, it looks like he's turning to the archives for performance togs, pulling out and repping Hilfiger's iconic rectangular blocked logo.

And just like that, she's gone. As of last night, Beyonce officially closed out the U.S. leg of her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Sure, she still has Made In America Festival coming up Labor Day weekend, but as far as King Bey's solo performance extravaganza, last night was it for the star-spangled states. As with everything else the "Grown Woman" has a hand in, she had to close out her American run in a big way, and BOY, did she deliver. BK (as in Beyonce Knowles) didn't just give BK (as in Brooklyn) the debut live performance of "Bow Down." She also brought out a new stage ensemble AND *drumrolllll* her husband, Jay Z. AWWWwwwwww!

Brooklyn (also, WORLD), get ready! Kanye West is performing at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, helping break in Barclays Center for its very first major awards show. Yeezy joins KAWS and Lady Gaga for the history-making 30th VMAs to perform "Black Skinhead," making history of his own by officially tying Madonna as the artist with the most VMA performances—come Sunday, August 25, Yeezus and Madge will be neck-and-neck with seven total. In honor of Ye's momentous return to the VMA stage and long history with the show, we took a look back at his previous performance outfits.

2004: CANDY PINK COLLEGE DROPOUT

Kanye today is larger than life, but even Kanye circa 2004 had a big VMA debut, performing a medley of chart-toppers from College Dropout—"Jesus Walks," "All Falls Down," and "Through The Wire"— with legendary Chaka Khan. The MC reworked his signature look at the time, a pink polo with the collar popped, for the occasion, opting instead for a striped Pepto Bismol pink button-up, pink satin tie, a black velveteen suit, and a big ol' smile.

Oh, Beyonce! You know us so well. Sure, the New York dates are trailing off on the tail end of your Mrs. Carter Show world tour's U.S. leg, but you made it worth our wait. Not just by delivering SO. HARD. for two hours straight of hits complete with performative piano-top writhing AND flying across the Barclays Center (*shameless plug* home of the 2013 VMAs *brushes shoulders off*)like TinkerBey to your second stage, but ALSO because you gave us not one but TWO new performance outfits!

Have you stared at the sketches of Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Show tour wardrobe a thousand times? Memorized the placement of every sequin and chiffon ruffle? Written strongly worded letters to Stuart Weitzman that it's about time they start carrying her stage heels and booties in stores? Well, now you have yet another style-related avenue to Stan out about King Bey's international tour: beauty. Thanks to makeup artist Sir John who's traveling and pretty-making in the name of Mrs. Carter, we're that much closer to maybe someday unlocking the secrets to Beyonce's consummate gorgeousness.

OK, apparently no one is even remotely concerned about wearing leather in the dead of summer anymore. Not Miley Cyrus. Not Justin Bieber. Not Ciara. And now, we can add Selena Gomez to the list. This morning, the pop star flew into New York City wearing leather sweatpants and continued wearing them right through to her OUTDOOR Good Morning America performance. *dabs sweat off upper lip*

Lady Gaga

Little Monsters, get your paws all. the way. UP. Lady Gaga is BACK! And we don't mean that just in the sense that ARTPOP is on a speeding train to your ears very soon. Mother Monster is making her epic return to the VMAs, not just attending but performing. That's right, folks. The premiere performance of Gaga's first ARTPOP single is happening live at the 2013 VMAs (Sunday, August 25, 9 p.m. ET) on the Barclays Center stage. *head explodes into a mushroom cloud of glitter* Talk about huge news! As anyone who has ever watched an award show at which Gagaloo was in attendance can attest, Stefani does not mess around when it comes to event attire, and the MTV Video Music Awards are an extra special case. Gaga's VMA fashion history isn't very long, but in just a handful of years, she's been responsible for some of the most iconic style moments of the past decade. In preparation for her 2013 return, we're looking back at all of Lady Gaga's VMA outfits. Ever.

2009: NECK BRACE BAROQUE

Gaga's first VMA experience was in 2009 (the last time the show was held in New York). Amidst the go-to sparkly mini dresses typical of stars at the time, she ruffled feathers (literally!) in a lace floor-length Jean Paul Gaultier gown worn with a gold House of Blue Eyes half-mask and a black, opulently feathered, intricately detailed Keko Hainswheeler neck brace situation.

Selena Gomez may say she's celebrating her birthday all week, but with a new single out, new album released yesterday, and a new movie to promote, she's back at work and hitting the late night talk show circuit. Selly stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night to chat about all of the above, and playing up that multi-facted split style personality, she wore one outfit for her interview and another later on the Tonight Show stage.

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