Wow. In case you hadn't heard, Usher is going to perform at the 2014 VMAs. We've been thinking about Usher a lot lately, anyway. First of all, there's the "Good Kisser" remix by Disclosure. There's also the collab between Usher, Pharrell, and Nicki Minaj ("She Came to Give It To You") that already seems to be a floor burner. (Seriously, it's so catchy). But the one thing we really can't get out of our minds? That hat Usher keeps wearing.

He's been taking a page out of the Pharrell playbook by resurfacing vintage headgear. And while Ush may have had his raccoon cap since February, he’s been getting some serious mileage out of it. He’s been spotted in the cap while doing press to promote season six of The Voice, during a late night appearance with Jimmy Fallon, and, most recently, at the BET Awards. Where Usher goes, the hat goes. But does that mean it'll make the trip to Inglewood in August?

We've been taking the month of December to pour over the best, biggest, and most '90s fashion moments of 2013. Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? NO. Hence all the reminders. But a fresh start never hurt anyone. As we bring 2013 to a close, we've enlisted our old friend Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit to help punt the past 365 days clear into tomorrow. Kweens, may we present to you: #2013hashadit.

Listen, people. We know everyone can't stop talking about Miley Cyrus' twerk sesh "We Can't Stop" performance, but we have some serious VMA style moments to discuss here. Before any of the onstage shenanigans went down, we were peeping what the celebs were wearing outside the Barclays Center--you know, on that thing called a red carpet. We saw our favorite gals sporting everything from jeans and a T-shirt to super glam statement gowns, and we loved it all. As you know, though, we MUST narrow it down to our top 10 favorites, so check out who we picked below (and be sure to comment on who you liked best!).

Lady Gaga looked dashing in her all-black Prabal Gurung gown, and we know it's hitting us in a special place because we never, ever say the word "dashing." Honestly, we love seeing a sleek, goth-y Gaga wrapped up like a perfect little present, and for that, she makes it to the top of our list.

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that, by now, 80% of America has to have seen (or at least heard about) Miley Cyrus' performance at last night's 2013 VMAs. The kick-off of a three-song medley—her own single, "We Can't Stop," plus Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and "Give It 2 U" featuring 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar—Miley started things off with a bang in a silver bear-faced leotard accompanied by an actually pretty clever a**-glorifying intro medley of what appear to be interpolations of Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" and Big Sean's "A$$," if you were paying close enough attention, leading into her smash single. Giant teddy backpacks and dancers dressed as bears supported Miley's tongue-and-twerk-tastic solo performance, her first time ever on the VMA stage. And then the Robin Thicke portion started.

Sure, the 2013 VMAs may be over, but we still can't stop talking about those nails! In case you missed it, we had a STELLAR spot on the red carpet *brushes shoulders off* where we could shoot some of our favorite celeb's manis up close. While some ladies went for a super simple design (like our red carpet host Rachel Antonoff!), others went BALLS. OUT. with some seriously decked-out tips. We have a total soft spot for girls that take their nail game to the next level, so we picked our 5 favorite designs to share with y'all! FYI: Be sure to peep the poll at the end of the post, so you can see the winning design recreated in a step-by-step tutorial right here on MTV Style. Pretty cool, eh?

Our first favorite mani comes from Ms. Rita Ora. She sported seriously chic nude stiletto tips with just a hint of rhinestones on the pointer and ring finger to match her all-crystal-everything Alexandre Vauthier gown. *picks jaw up off floor*

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grimes, 2 Chainz

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

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