Sometimes the stars align so perfectly, it's hard not to just stop everything you're doing, sit back, and think about how beautiful this big ol' world is. Basically, we're referring to Robert Pattinson, and how we peeped a pic of him going into Beyonce's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour last night wearing a vintage MTV jacket. Let that digest for a minute: Robert Pattinson. Beyonce. MTV jacket. It's like the universe took our three most favorite things of all time and rolled them up in one beautifully-packaged moment. :') RPattz sported his red, black and white leather sleeve varsity jacket with a plain white crew neck tee, relaxed jeans, and backward snapback hat.
When two of our most favorite things (MTV and style, duh) mix in the most beautiful of ways, we can't HELP but be ecstatic. Last night our girl Snooki Instagrammed a pic of herself sporting an MTV tank top with the caption "#RetroMTV shirt <3," and we just about died. A current MTV star wearing a retro MTV logo? It's all too much for our emotionless hearts to handle. The Snooki & JWOWW star decided to stick with an all-American MTV theme on a heather gray tank (even though the old logo was ever-changing), and she finished the look with round, animal print sunnies, denim cut-off short, and high pony. Perf!
We might be a little biased, but MTV-themed nails are probably the best ever. And we're not even talking about the shows or celebrities or anything our network has created over its 30 plus years of existence—we just mean the straight-up iconic "M" logo with the word "TV" scribbled in front of it. We found UH-MAZING homages to our channel thanks to some killer nail artists across the globe, and we just had to share them with y'all. Not only do we feel honored that ladies are dedicating some serious time to painting mini MTV masterpieces on their tips, but DUDES—the execution is phenom. We couldn't have done it better ourselves (literally), so here's a shout-out to some of our favorite fan-based nail art! (And, yes, once you're done drooling over these designs, there's a tutorial on how to create the logo in a few simple steps.)
Netherlands-based nail aficionado Nina (whoa, hi alliteration!) created an MTV mani with the logo on EVERY finger. Whew, talk about a lot of work! She used a white base and added a splash of color on each tip with the 3D logo on top. We give her major props for not giving up after one nail (lord knows we would), but that's just the beginning! The rest of her nail art handiwork will make your jaw drop. Seriously, YOU MUST LOOK.
Guys' pants we'd never give back.

If you haven't already seen the trailer for MTV's newest show I Just Want My Pants Back, first of all, *GASP*, and second, what are you waiting for?! Just in case you're burdened by a laggy connection, we'll cut you some slack and break it down for you. It's a simple tease of boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Boy and girl hook up. Girl steals boy's pants and throws him off track with a phone number for a Chinese restaurant. ZING!
Now, don't let the title fool you. This isn't just some rat race, witch hunt for the dude's missing jeans. The tongue-in-cheek series chronicles the misadventures of four twentysomethings, the lead Jason and his three friends, trying to make it in NYC, but the pants-stealing hook tooootally has weight. And so, in honor of tonight's Pants series premiere (TONIGHT! at 11/10c on MTV), we've rounded up a bunch of guys' pants we would absolutely steal and never give back.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand are ALL about the PDA, so it only made sense for Katy Perry to show up at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with her fiance's image painted on her nails, right? Yes, you read that right. Katy Perry wore a Russell Brand manicure!! The lovebirds first hooked up about a year ago at the VMAs, so could Katy Perry's manicure be a nod to their anniversary? We're not sure, but that'd be a pretty CUTE gesture.
+ Do you like Katy Perry's manicure? Would you wear your man's face on your nails?

Who says you have to spend a ton of cash to get a great dress? Not Jersey Shore star Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, who walked the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in a $139 Bebe sequin and lace one-sleeve number! The pretty pattern and texture of the dress is so fresh! Plus, we love that Sammi kept her look sleek with classic black peep-toe pumps, and accessorized with a small, gold clutch and simple bracelet. Sammi looks so mature and pulled together, but she still showed off her Jersey roots with a poof in her hair. We adore this side of her!!
+ Do you like Sammi's dress—yes or no?

The Hills star Audrina Patridge chose a sparkly Isaac Mizrahi dress with spaghetti straps to the Video Music Awards and accesorized with an equally glam Judith Leiber belt and Jacob and Co. jewels. But the real kicker? Her KILLER diamond Balmain strappy sandals!! And then we remembered that this wasn't the first time Audrina Patridge wore silver to an MTV awards show. Back in June, she rocked another silver frock by CD Greene to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and paired it with studded, strappy Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Does Audrina Patridge have a go-to color for MTV awards shows? We think so!
+ Which silver dress do you like better on Audrina Patridge — VMAs or Movie Awards?
It's no secret that we've all been on the edge of our seats wondering what Lady Gaga will wear to this year's Video Music Awards, which kicks off in Los Angeles in less than FIVE hours! Coco Rocha, host of MTV.com's "Red Carpet Report" for tonight's event, is getting a head start on her duties with a fashion prediction for the head-turning pop star. What does the supermodel think Lady Gaga will wear tonight? MENSWEAR! Well, maybe.
WATCH COCO ROCHA DISCUSS LADY GAGA BELOW!!!
"I've been thinking about Lady Gaga, and I feel like she's going to come as her alter ego. I think she's going to come as the male version," Coco guessed to MTV earlier today. "Or, plain, simple. I don't think she's going to try and go above and beyond again. She's done it."
You may remember that Lady Gaga wore a number of stunning outfits to last year's MTV Video Music Awards. First, she arrived on the red carpet in a black, floor-length feather dress complete with a golden neck brace and and Phantom-of-the-Opera-style mask. Later that night, she took the stage in white thigh-high boots and a lace belly-baring top paired with white undies. And then there was that red lace dress, which came with a matching face mask and red crown.
So we think Coco might be right in thinking Lady Gaga will tone down her look this year. But probably not by much. After all, if anyone knows how to stun the crowd with a fashion statement, it's Lady Gaga, hands down. So we'll just have to wait and see ... only a few hours to go!
