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.

It is a play-date fever dream and a 2013 MTV VMA wish-fulfillment miracle that none other than the legendary Kathleen Hanna and future-legendary Grimes (also known as Claire Boucher) interviewed each other for our All Access Live stream. We've included the clips for you of this fascinating chinwag but the best part is that the conversation topics ran the gamut from deceptively subversive Beyoncé lyrics and contemporary misconceptions of feminism.

Hanna, who blazed the trails as the lead singer of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, is currently the front woman for Brooklyn band The Julie Ruin, whose debut album Run Fast will be released on September 3rd on TJR Records. And of course Grimes, who will also be hosting our Red Carpet show later today with designer Rachel Antonoff, is best known for her Faery Queen musings and manifestos on various social media platforms as well as her status as a critical darling amongst the music cognoscenti for her peripatetic influences and how her voice feels like air conditioning on your face.

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

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.

miley cyrus

So la da di da di, twisted knots up like Mi-ley.

There isn’t a whole lot of hair on Miley Cyrus’ head these days, but we gotta give a girl credit where credit is due—she sure has found a ton of ways to wear it. Mussed to the left, tussled to the right, bouffant, fauxhawk, voluminous spikes! I’d imagine that the amount of styling gel that girl goes through in a week could fully submerge a normal-sized human in a bathtub, AMIRITE? (Free business idea: Miley-branded hair goop!?)

But before she went pixie, the VMA nominee/performer was all about the topknots. And now that she’s actively trying to grow her hair out again, she seems to have found a way to pay homage to the style she used to rock on the reg with itty-bitty raver buns! Since admitting to Kelly Osbourne on E!’s Fashion Police that she’s been “secretly tugging on [her hair] every night” and taking growth vitamin supplements, Miley’s been snapped twisting two tiny knots up on top of her head pretty frequently. It’s punky, low-maintenance (not to mention low-gel) and cute without being darling. So will this be her hairstyle of choice for this year’s VMAs?

Fifth HarmonyX-Factor finalists and all-around stylish ladies--are heading to the VMAs this Sunday, but, alas, they have nothing to wear! The five girls—Camila, Ally, Normani, Lauren, and Dinah--graciously allowed MTV to tag along as they went shopping at Dalaga in Brooklyn for their VMA Red Carpet looks and, we must say, we are pretty psyched to see what they end up wearing.

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.

arianna grande

Ariana Grande gets giddy at the thought of snakes on stage.

Here's a realization that’s going to blow your mind/make you feel old: This year’s VMAs will mark the 10-year anniversary of one seriously may-jah OMG moment, when Britney Spears, in booty-baring bridal wear, got an open-mouth kiss from Madonna during their mash-up performance (with a fake-and-baked Christina Aguilera) of “Like A Virgin”/”Hollywood.” But that wasn't Britney’s only OMG VMA moment! When MTV talked to Ariana Grande about her upcoming VMA pre-show performance (where she'll sing a mash-up of her two hit singles, “Baby I” and “The Way”), Grande named Spears’ “Slave 4 U” snake-charming stunt from 2001 as her favorite moment in VMA history. So would Grande dare to wear a giant reptile for her big debut?

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