Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, And More Set Trends At 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards

The 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards may not have been the Selena Gomez x Lady Gaga outfit parade that was last year’s event. And Justin Bieber may have swapped out that Kelly Kapowski tee for his baby brother Jaxon, but the Canada-based MMVAs still soldiered on a fashion-filled awards show.

Mini-dresses are a pretty universal summer staple, but judging from the MuchMusic red carpet, the key to keeping the look on-trend is going bucking prints and patterns, going straight for the solids. Selena Gomez fudges the lines a little with this gold embellished spaghetti strap number, but keeps the hue head-to-toe to maintain uniformity. Lucy Hale test-runs the hottest silhouette of the season – the peplum – in a rich bordeaux, while Nelly Furtado sticks with stark white in this ruffled strapless bodycon.

Katy Perry & co. know that the best way to shake things up for a summer event is to roll in wearing all black. KP sported head-to-toe onyx accented by her purple hair and a large sculpted gold filigree panel across the bodice of the dress. Fellow performer Justin Bieber also wore all-black with leather/wax-coated pants, a liquid look tee, and sueded high-top sneakers. Carly Rae Jepsen and Shenae Grimes both opted for black maxis with thigh-high slits. Carly Rae punched hers up with a neon Man Repeller x Dannijo bib necklace while Shenae went for punkier gold-spiked pumps.
