VMAs 2010: The 10 Best Dressed At The Video Music Awards

The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards brought stars together from all corners of the music and fashion industries. The red carpet walk was a visual feast, with some stars wearing designer gowns (Ciara in Givenchy!), while others went for a more low-key look, such as Jared Leto, who rocked a leather jacket and combat boots! Herewith, our top ten favorite looks from the evening.

1. Lady Gaga In Alexander McQueen
Lady Gaga paid tribute to Alexander McQueen, the British designer who sent her clothes for her “Bad Romance” video, by wearing a gown from his fall 2010 collection. The red, green, and gold piece looked royal on Lady Gaga, and the head piece was the perfect finishing touch!

2. Lady Gaga In Giorgio Armani
Lady Gaga looked DIVINE in this voluminous black dress, which had a plunging necklace and full leather skirt. Also, check out that matching spiked black headpiece! Designer Giorgio Armani custom-created the look for the pop star, and you can get a peak at what the outfit looked like before it was made for Lady Gaga here!

3. Jared Leto In Leather And Combat Boots
We know we’re not supposed to fall for bad boys, but how can we help ourselves when Jared Leto shows up in this gray leather jacket worn over black jeans and combat boots? It’s pitch perfect for the recent fall weather, and we’d be happy if we could cozy up next to this guy.

4. Hayley Williams Of Paramore In Miu Miu
Paramore’s Hayley Williams took the high-fashion road tonight, and selected a black Miu Miu dress with floral appliqu├ęs on it, and a bow on the neckline. She finished the look with Miu Miu pumps, and we must say, this is such a great look on her! The minimal makeup and bright pop of hair color all go together so well.

5. Justin Bieber In Sparkles
Justin Bieber took his fashion know-how to a new level when he rocked BLINGING sparkles! Really, we think he’s too adorable. And the sparkles are adorable. And the two together? Well, don’t get us started.

6. Taylor Swift’s Strapless Gown
Taylor Swift paid tribute to fashions of the past with this forties-inspired strapless dress for her VMA performance. Check out her glam curls and deep wine lipstick…. she’s like a modern-day Katharine Hepburn!

7. Selena Gomez In Reem Acra
There are too many young ladies trying to look too sexy too soon these days. That’s why we loved this silver Reem Acra gown that Selena Gomez chose for tonight’s show. Sure, it has a thigh-high slip, but the beaded corset top and loose ponytail give this look a hint of romance, and keeps her age appropriate (she’s 18!).

8. Coco Rocha In Zac Posen
Oh, Coco, how we ADORED your black Zac Posen dress with its ruffled straps! Given that Coco Rocha is one the world’s most famous models, we knew her pick would be nothing short of fabulous. Her pretty, dangly earrings offered just the right touch of glam.

9. Florence Welch in Givenchy Couture
Florence Welch’s flaming red hair really popped against this long-sleeved, embellished dress, which had a golden-greenish color. The fit really shows off her curves, and we love that Florence Welch manages to look sexy while staying covered up.

10. Ciara in Givenchy
Feathers, and lace, and slits, oh my! Ciara looked like a supermodel in this gorgeous Givenchy black dress. We love the mix in patterns and textures… it’s such a nice look for the singer.
