I hope you didn't think we forgot about the most important (in MY humble opinion - though, I know I'm biased) accessory in our 2011 VMA style round-up! Oh, ye of little faith. There were just SO many options, such A-grade shoes game (not to mention outfit changes) that we needed to let it all marinate before we made our selections. The flipbook is full of our picks, but our three most exemplary well-heeled ladies of the night were big winner Katy Perry, MTV family staple Lil Mama, and VMA House Artist Jessie J.

During the 2011 VMAs, we saw SO MANY celebs sparkling on the red carpet! From Jessie J and JWOWW to Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland, the ladies were literally lighting up the place with their shimmery dresses. But when we saw Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens we did a double take—they were both sporting super similar long silver dresses (try saying that 10 times fast! Because I can't :( ). The brunette beauties opted for low cut skintight metallic gowns AND glistening silver cuffs, but their hair game was totally different. Kim kept her look more relaxed with free-flowing strands paired with a cap-sleeved KaufmanFranco silver gown and no necklace. Vanessa piled on the metal and went with '40s glam finger wave curls to complement her Candie's dress. (Yes, THAT Candie's. We swear!) They both opted for a sultry smoky eye, but between these two looks, we like Kim's overall ensemble better! Her not-too-done-up 'do paired with an ultra fancy dress makes her look chic AND totally VMA-appropriate. Kudos to you, Kim!

+ Who do YOU think wore a silver dress best: Kim Kardashian or Vanessa Hudgens?

If there's one word to describe the VMA style this year, it's "fierce." From Nicki Minaj's candy raver outfit to Katy Perry's Asian-inspired ensemble, the ladies BUH-ROUGHT it on the red carpet. And when it came to their makeup, it was no different! VMA house artist Jessie J and Jersey Shore ladies Snooki and JWOWW fierceified (What? That's a word.) their makeup looks with super dramatic eyes that made a lasting impression.

Selena Gomez's outfits at the 2011 VMAs.

Any way you dice it, Selena Gomez looked in-CRED-ible at the 2011 VMAs. On the black carpet at the preshow, she was a vision in a lacy black Julien MacDonald gown. The dramatic hi-low hem, the sulty strategic sheer paneling, that NECKLINE. We die. If she weren't so stinkin' sweet, this would be THE perfect outfit for some classically seductive villainess. But Selena Gomez is wearing it, so it just looks sophisticated and insanely HOT (and not scary).

Lady Gaga as Jo Calderone by Terry Richardson.

Now, it's OFFICIAL. First, a prominent feature in the "Yoü and I" music video. Then, an all-night appearance at the 2011 VMAs. And now, Lady Gaga's dude alter ego Jo Calderone has been immortalized by the white-hot flashbulbs of legendary rock and roll photographer Terry Richardson. This makes Jo, we think, a bit of his own bona fide seperate entity, breathing new and individual light to what had seemed at first a fleeting character (most likely Gaga's aim all along, but we aren't mind readers). Jo's style is simple—white tees, black slacks, Elvis-esque pompadour—but that's what makes him the perfect subject for a Terry Richardson shoot. The photos are classically Terry—beautiful, clean, raw, and REAL. Peep the rest of the photos AND last night's live performance of "Yoü and I" at the 2011 VMAs after the jump!

Justin Bieber channels Kanye West at the 2011 VMAs.

So this is one of those times when we're almost like, "Whoa, how DARE we make a comparison this colossal??" but then a second glance at this side-by-side convinces us that the better question is: Really, how could we NOT?? Justin Bieber and Kanye West are two mammothly successful mega-stars of humans who are ultra-famous and infamous, each in his own right. They have their own styles—musically and sartorially—and seldom are the two mentioned in the same breath. Until now. Because maybe we're crazy, or we're so punch-drunk from marathon blogging the WAY eventful 2011 VMAs that we're apt to say anything in such a fragile mental state as this, but we're declaring that Bieber's outfit HAS to be some sort of homage (be it subconscious or not) to Yeezy's 2010 VMA performance outfit!

Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne all wear animal print to the 2011 VMAs.

Who said fashion was a lady-exclusive space? I know we've been focusing on the sartorial adventures of those VMA attendees of the fairer sex, but we're down to recognize that dudes didn't just bring it, they unloaded it and merchandised it in perfectly parallel three-finger-spaced rows on the table. So much so they're even dictating TRENDS. Yea, you heard me (or read me, you get the point). A hearty standing O began at first sight of those leopard skinnies and has continued into the afternoon here at MTV Style for the collective exemplary display of animal print made by Justin Bieber, dad-to-be Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne.

Well folks, it's been another year and yet another entertaining (and STYLE CRAZY!!!) VMAs. Seriously, what other awards show gives you a giant, yellow cube hat, a Ralph Macchio look-a-like, and a surgical mask as the accessory du jour? We don't mean to breathe on our Minx Nails and shine them languidly on our hypothetical METALLIC LEOPARD SEQUIN blogging gown, but we're pretty proud of all of the celebs who truly brought it this year. We don't know about you, but it felt like a PARTY (a sparkly, cat-eyed, Minnie Mouse party) out on that red—er, black—carpet, and we had a hard time narrowing down our STYLE FAVES to just 10 SHOWSTOPPERS. You see, in our no-rulez book, EVERYONE'S a WINNER, buuuuut, we picked 10 anyway. Thus, without further ado, we present our OUTFITS OF THE NIGHT!

BEYONCE

Newly announced mommy-to-be Beyoncé glowed in a fiery one-shoulder Lanvin gown that showed off a more regal side to Bey. Her effortless side pony and simple accessories were absolute PERFECTION against her bold dress. But we're sure Jay-Z already knew that.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry took a bit of Asian influence with her to the VMA red carpet! She wore a springy floral blue, pink, and yellow Atelier Versace frock, hot pink strappy Jimmy Choo sandals, and a matching parasol, which made her freshly dyed pink hair POP.

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!

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!

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