Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

We definitely expected our style correspondents, Grimes and Rachel Antonoff, to be thorough in their red carpet interviews. By thorough, we were imagining things like: head-to-toe run-downs, designers, fabrics, inspiration, pre-carpet getting ready rituals, etc. You know the drill. #FASHUN But when the girls hooked up with Travi$ Scott, they took thorough to a whoooole new level.

Riff Raff

Of all the varying genres of looks on the red carpet, Riff Raff is one of the best at doing "casually outrageous." He may be a rapper, but there is something very hair metal about him, the 2013 equivalent of, say, Vince Neil in zebra-print leggings. This year, ya boy and his MTV neck tattoo hit the red carpet in snakeskin pants pulled up to the calves, neon pink Gucci high-tops, ski-goggle-esque shades, his Cheshire cat chain, a Permanent Vacation Crew Black Bart Simpson t-shirt, and a wintry scarf made of half a chinchilla (also, Gucci). Subtlety is not an option for this G-to-Gent.

Rihanna Video Music Awards

You know, only Rihanna could roll up to the 2013 VMAs in a T-shirt and jeans and still totally kill it in the style department. RiRi skipped the red carpet (sadface times a million!), but when we spotted her inside the Barclays Center, she looked as cute as ever in her casual-cool ensemble. She sported a distressed MC Lyte graphic tee with super dark cuffed jeans, black stilettos, a decked OUT diamond choker, diamond studs, massive bauble rings, and tons of stacked bracelets. Our favorite accessory of all, though, definitely had to be the teeny cross-shaped grill she wore between her two front teeth. I mean, between the gold gun mouthpiece she sported earlier this month and the diamond grill from July, it's safe to assume that this girl is growing QUITE the collection.

That's a wrap, y'all. Katy Perry ended the 2013 VMAs by performing "Roar" in a boxing ring, under the Brooklyn bridge. Like, you do not want to mess with "Roar"-era Katy, she is clearly ready 2 tango. The first performance of "Roar" is very elaborate: there's a boxing ring, sweaty dancers, a spit bucket, and jump rope. It's got it all.

Wow. Just. Wow. There you have it, folks. The rumors were true. We were just graced with an *NSYNC reunion at the 2013 VMAs in celebration of Justin Timberlake's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Is everyone still breathing? (Because I barely am...) In honor of the boy man band's ceremonious return to the MTV stage with a few bars of "Gone," "Girlfriend," AND "Bye Bye Bye" (with the VERY same TV choreography from their 2000 performance, BTW), we're taking a look back at how far they've come. Sartorially speaking.

1999 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS

Hello, late '90s. For *NSYNC's first appearance at the Video Music Awards, the group went all out with LUSH luxury fabrics. A strong fur vest for JC Chasez (plus some bicep and knee bands), head-to-toe black leather on JT (pre-dating another Justin who frequents this look), Lance Bass in wool jewel tones (and teeny bookish spectacles), Chris Kirkpatrick in a glittering sage jacket, and Joey Fatone in a full-length evergreen pony hair jacket off-set by his FLAME red hair. Classic.

Kanye WEst Video Music Awards

Kanye West's sense of personal style is as unpredictable as his music, and if you will notice, his clothing evolves with every album. And we've come a long way from the hoodies and v-neck sweater vests of his first few albums—we've even zipped past his Rick Owens man-kilts and all Givenchy everything (though trust, Yeezy will never turn his back on his friend/the god Riccardo Tisci). Earlier this week, when he appeared on his baby's grandma's show Kris and out-trending-topic'd himself (#Krisye!), he dressed down in khakis and a white tee and denim—it was Balenciaga, but still.

You guys. It has begun. *SQUEAL!* When Lady Gaga first hit the stage to perform “Applause,” we were like, “Is she supposed to be a yolk in the middle of an egg?” but then we were like, “Maybe she’s paying homage to the Flying Nun?” but then we were like, “What does any of that have to do with anything?” And then we were like, “Hello, it's Lady Gaga. She's on another wavelength.”

Miley Cyrus

So, the performance we've all been hearing about/thinking about/eagerly awaiting just occurred: Miley Cyrus hit the stage as first time VMA performer. She emerged from a giant bear statue, made by New York artist Todd "REAS" James, in a silver leotard that had a furry gray bodice with a bear face attached. The bear had a lot going on: it was winking and sticky its tongue out Miley-style. Like, can bears do either of those things? Prob not, but YOLO it's the VMAs, y'all! There was a minor bear theme throughout the entire performance, JK MAY-JAH BEAR THEME. The dancers had huge bears on their backs and, somehow, still managed to twerk alongside Miley.

VMAs

It's been interesting to watch Miley Cyrus' fashion evolution for the past few months, and right now is a crucial moment for her, as she establishes herself as an adult and explores different paths in her style since she's been trying to align herself with hip-hop. And we think we see where she's going with this: vintage, vintage, vintage. Earlier today, she dropped the cover for her new album, Bangerz, styled like an old-school Teena Marie album in a vintage Saint Laurent (then YSL) jacket.

Katy Perry

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.

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