Jersey Shore's "blast in a glass" Deena turned up to the 2011 VMAs in an outfit that reflected (heh) her outgoing personality—a bright and cheerful sequin rainbow strapless mini dress! Not only did Deena match her sequin clutch and sequin hoop earrings to her sequin dress, but she ALSO sported new shocking green eyes to match her bright frock! Her makeup also ranged all across the visible spectrum, from her emerald eyes to her cherry lips and olive green liner. The typically brown-eyed girl also used the rainbow stripes as inspiration for her strands by streaking them with bits of blonde. Also, is it just us or does she kind of remind you of a Skittles bag?

We're not 100% sure whether Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose intended to (somewhat) match on the VMA red carpet tonight, but you know what? They did, and it looks great! It may be scoffed at as a juvenile practice meant to be relegated to grade school dances where you stand with your date in weird standing spooning poses covered in ill-advised arrangements of gardenia and baby's breath before spray painted/papier-mâché backdrops, but LAWD, does it make your couple pics look PURDY!

Britney Spears at the 2011 VMAs.

We hit up the 2011 VMA red carpet with our host Kreayshawn, and we live-blogged it all STRAIGHT from the scene to dish on what celebs were wearing. But sometimes, there are some artists we don't get to talk to (but REALLY, REALLY wish we did) and we have to admire their outfits from afar. See: Britney Spears' photo above. She wore a black sequin Moschino romper with sheer overlay detail, a low-slung belt, and platform gold and black peep-toe boots. KILLER. Demi Lovato shined a body-conscious Mandalay silver sequin plunging mini with matching Christian Louboutin pumps, and Miley Cyrus sported a long floral and animal print blue and black Roberto Cavalli gown. Wanna know who else we missed? Check out our SUPER HUGE VMA red carpet flipbook with every single celeb below!!

Kanye West at the 2011 VMAs.

Kanye West and Jay-Z surprised the 2011 VMAs with an unannounced performance of the new single "Otis" from their album collab, Watch the Throne. We'd been wondering if the Kanye rumors were true—if he was actually going to show—and if he'd possibly be wearing something that would hint at his upcoming fashion line that is reportedly set to debut during New York Fashion Week. Instead, we were bestowed with the gift of ombré chambray. Try saying that out loud: ombré chambray. Let it seep into your soul and emanate from your pores. Ommm-brayyy cham-brayyy. (Don't mind us, it's just the Swedish Fish talking, but, really, what a beautiful pairing of words and colored fabric.) But, WE'RE SERIOUS. Kanye rocked ALL OVER DENIM. That's risky. He paired a gradient shaded, blue chambray shirt (unbuttoned slightly, a thick strand of gold peeking through) with his FAVE Balmain jeans. We think he looks comfy, happy, and TAME this year. Blue on the outside but maybe not so much on the inside. What can we say? We like it.

OK, OK, so we know after these VMAs erryone is all up in a tizzy about Beyoncé and Jay-Z and the baby bump heard 'round the world, but would you just look at these two little love muffins? I mean, it's no secret that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are adorbz with a captial A, but the Sel'iebs/Jelena/Gomieber (Really? There's still no standardized couple moniker for these guys??) collective style star just keeps RISING, y'all!

Katy Perry wears a yellow cube hat at the VMAs.
Photo: Getty Images

It seems Katy Perry took a page out of Lady Gaga's book with a few prepared wardrobe changes for tonight's VMAs. Though the California Gurl only rocked half the total number of ensembles Gaga sported at the 2009 awards (honestly, six is preeeetty ambitious), Katy nonetheless turned it OUT with her three outfits, especially with this head-to-toe Christian Dior yellow cube-hat number. I mean, REALLY.

We know geometric is, like, totally a thing right now, but Katy's putting the sleeper hold on this trend and totally one-upping it here. It would be noteworthy enough had she left it at the cotton candy pink cropped jacket top with its yellow saucer of a button and single lime lapel. But girl done went ahead and took it to the next level, pairing it with the facet-printed tulip skirt and this CRAYMAZING 3-D cube hat. What is it made of? Wood? Plastic? METAL??! Is it heavy? Is that why you have to do that "broken down doll," Katy? Because you can barely hold your head up? What's the inspiration behind it? Is it a cube of cheese escaped from the toothpick of a Giantess at some swanky party in the heavens? Is it a symbol of some sort? We're each a part of one whole crazy colorful Rubix cube of a world? We'd like to know.

Adele at the 2011 VMAs.
Photo: Getty Image

One of the most anticipated performances at tonight's VMAs (both for fans and for several of the VMA attendants) was most definitely Adele singing "Someone Like You." When the ladybird chanteuse emerged from the blackened stage, all you could see was her dramatic porcelain visage framed by a loosely curled, ladylike, side-ponytail (which we think could replace the side summer braid this fall). Her face was devoid of any overt makeup other than a strong set of loooong black eyelashes and (unless you blinked and missed them) even LONGER nude fingernails. Both were rather BOLD choices rendered in a subtle way, and they worked beautifully against her 1950s-style black, Barbara Tfank cinched-waist dress.

Lady Gaga performing at the 2011 VMAs and Ralph Macchio from "Karate Kid."

So, remember when Lady Gaga opened the 2011 VMAs as her alter ego/manself Jo Calderone? And she looked kind of oddly hot—like a potty-mouthed, broken, soul-searching, young boy on the quest for self-discovery? Yeah, well, in her rolled-up Uniqlo white tee and baggy Brooks Brothers pants, she/he kind of reminded us of someone ELSE who was a little rough around the edges—The Karate Kid. And no, we're not talking about the remake here, people. We're talking about the rough-n-tumble ORIGINAL Ralph Macchio Karate Kid shining in all his 1984 glory. He's got the printed bandana, same relaxed rolled-up-sleeves white shirt, and high-waisted baggy pants as Gaga. Plus, that SAME shaggy black 'do and chillax attitude is just TOO MUCH for us. They're the same. We're convinced.

+ Do you think Lady Gaga looks like The Karate Kid?

Beyoncé arrives at the 2011 Video Music Awards.
Photo: Getty Images

OH MY GAHHHHHHH, you guys. The BIGGEST, BESTEST, MOST INCREDIBLE NEWS just landed in our laps quite, um, literally, when we spotted Beyoncé on the 2011 VMA red carpet in an GORGE fiery orange Lanvin one-shoulder wrap dress and hidden beneath her layered fabric was an even MORE beautiful surprise—she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child!!! *explodes into tears* We loved Bey's effortless side-swept hair and that she STILL sported heels even though she's a mommy-to-be.

And then, she SANG onstage in a killer purple sequin Dolce & Gabbana tux jacket and black pants during her "Love On Top" performance. At the end, she ripped open her jacket and rubbed her belly for ALL to see. Loveeee itttt.

Katy Perry rocks an outfit with Asian flavor at the VMAs.
Photo: Getty Images

Here at MTV Style, we just KNEW if there was one person whose outfit was guaranteed to shock us and send us into a head-360-spinning, eye-buggin' outfit at this year's Video Music Awards it would absolutely be the one Miss Katy Perry. And let us tell you, girl surely did not disappoint. Katy arrived shimmying down the red carpet in a full-on Asian-inspired ensemble of epic proportions. Rocking a floral-embellished besequined light blue mini (and we're talking MINI) with strappy neon coral heels, decorative flowers pinned into her newly pink hair (sidenote: We're LOVING the pin-curl waves, girl! Very South Pacific. Is that nerdy to say? Oh well, too late.), she goes the extra mile and tops the whole thing off with a gigantic PARASOL. Ugh. *clutches pearls + 'round the world snap* DO WERK.

+ What did you think of Katy Perry's themed 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.
