With a thunderous growl, Katy Perry is the queen of the red carpet jungle in an purrrrfectly fitting knee-length Emanuel Ungaro animal print FW13 dress, super-slick high pony and gold and jewel-plated GRILLZ, which spelled out "ROAR" (natch) across her teeth. You guys, she is literally about to take a bite out of the VMAs.

Grimes, 2 Chainz

Aannnnd we have officially witnessed the first of tonight's extra magical magic moments: Grimes, our Red Carpet Report co-host, chose Versace menswear pants for tonight's ensemble and… so did 2 Chainz. Chainz went head-to-toe
Vehrsayse, doing his classic jiggy man-rapper look, while Grimes tempered her pants with adidas sneakers and a black baby tee. Very Montreal underground promoter doing bday dinner at Nobu. But they were unmistakably wearing the same pants. #2Pantz

9:00 PM — It's showtime, peeps! Gotta run inside to catch all of Gaga's performance - what will she doooo? More accurately, what WON'T she do?

8:59 PM — PLUS: Let me also tell you about the time I asked Jared Leto "who are you wearing?" And we both took a beat to consider the douche-factor of the question at which point he responded "myself." And then I looked chagrined so he turned his eyes to STUN and just said, "oh, it's all old stuff." Mortified. But, whatever, also 100 percent worth it. Jordan. Catalano.

8:56 PM — Taylor Swift in a bodycon-diculous Herve Leger dress with a plunging back and immaculate pin curls.

8:53 PM — Sometimes famous people are so famous that for a split second it doesn't occur to you how you know them. It's the most surreal thing. It's what happens when you see Will Smith basically.

Rachel Antonoff and Grimes

It's the day before the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, New York, which means our red carpet hosts, Grimes a.k.a. Claire Boucher and Rachel Antonoff are here at the Barclays Center rehearsing the rigamarole of posing that age-old question—who are you wearing?

OK, so, the weirdest thing about the VMAs this year being within walking distance of my house is that it makes downtown Brooklyn serve eerie "movie studio backlot" vibes, and it's even more surreal to get to see one of our favorite recording artists and one of our most beloved clothing designers chatting it up with MTV Style mic cubes. Obviously, the best part of all this is that me and Chrissy get to take turns pretending to be Austin Mahone or Selena Gomez.

Lil Kim

Rebecca Romijn interviews rapper Lil Kim (in a boobie onesie outfit) at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.

Thinking back on the most iconic VMA fashion moments of all-time, most everyone's top 10, maybe even top 5, will include these four standbys: Lady Gaga's meat dress, Madonna's bridal "Like A Virgin" moment, Britney Spears' accessory python, and of COURSE, that time Lil Kim wore a purple onesie to the 1999 VMAs with her left boob hanging out. In our opinion, it's always a fitting year to relive this magical show-stopping sartorial moment, but it's even more appropriate given this year marking not only the Video Music Awards' return to New York (the 1999 show took place at NYC's Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center), but ALSO given we're breaking new ground in Kimmy Blanco's hometown of Brooklyn.

Jay Z

Talk about a Throwback Thursday! Back before Kanye West was selling out high fashion white tee collaborations, before A$AP Rocky was a fashion killa, there was a Brooklyn boy by the name of Jay Z (though, it had a hyphen then) building himself from a businessman into a "business, man" with a little streetwear line he dubbed Rocawear. Using Roc-A-Fella Records as the foundation, Mr. Shawn Carter and his long-time business partner Damon Dash decided they would spin the MC's success into other creative business avenues. Before Hov was rocking Tom Ford, he was making a sartorial name for the R-O-C. And on what red carpet did Jay rep Rocawear in its debut year? The 1999 VMAs, DUH.

Grimes Rachel Antonoff VMAs

Breaking news: MTV Style is so excited to announce that Grimes (Claire Boucher) and Rachel Antonoff will host the 2013 Video Music Awards Red Carpet Report for MTV.com on Aug. 25. AHHHH. That's right—this year we're bringing you double the awesomeness with two hosts instead of one because, well, we go hard in Brooklyn, y'all. You may know Grimes for her ethereal vocals, but we also know her as a style icon who has landed numerous fashion mag covers and even launched a clothing collab with Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane. Teaming up with Claire will be Rachel—an effortlessly cool New York-based designer who is also just an all-around amazing and hilarious gal. We fell in love with her during our House of Style episode where she and bestie Mae Whitman picked out their favorite dresses and dished on how they first bonded over flatulence. (Seriously.) "I couldn't be more excited to be co-hosting this and so excited to be doing it with Grimes, she is the coolest! I'm thinking of wearing a long floral skirt with matching bra top but we need to secure the closure first so people don't get a big (tiny) show." Man, this is gonna be good.

One Direction

As you may know, our pals/husbands in One Direction are starring in their own feature film, a documentary, called This Is Us. The movie hits theaters August 30th (I'll be there at midnight, the only fan in the world old enough to go at midnight), but its world premiere was today in London and, among thousands of fans who camped out overnight (yeah, I was there, JK I MERELY WISH!!!!), were the five One Direction lads dressed in coordinated black-and-white ensembles, monochrome coordination that they're already familiar with. I took on the task of poring over hundreds of photos of the premiere—yeah, you're welcome—to break down each guy's look.

Oh, red carpet. With the exception of the occasional summer blockbuster premiere, these warmer months are generally devoid of step-and-repeat steez. Luckily, come August, there's always the Teen Choice Awards (and of course, our own VMAs later this month #shamelessplug). The 2013 TCAs certainly didn't let us down in the well-dressed PYT department, and even though it was pretty much impossible, we did our best to whittle it down to the top looks of the night from Demi Lovato to Hailee Steinfeld and everyone in between.

DEMI LOVATO

Lovatics were treated to two Demi outfits as didn't just attend but also hit the stage to perform her single, "Made In The USA." On the carpet, D wore a black satin brocade blazer (which was swapped out for a leather jacket on stage), relaxed fit white tee, leather leggings, and black platform booties. Angling for a rock edge, the look was finished with layered silver necklaces, heavy smoky eyeliner, and a dramatic half-up half-down 'do with a high pompadour.

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?

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