Demi Lovato is performing for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show! That’s right, Lovatics, the singer/actress/X-Factor judge is hitting the VMA pre-show stage to pump up the crowd with her hit single “Give Your Heart A Break” to kick off the big night. We’re thrilled for her to rock out in honor of the Moonman, but we’re even MORE excited for what our girl D will WEAR! Since we can’t ever be bothered with sitting still to wait for these things, we took a quick scan through the Fall 2012 runways for a few looks (that aren’t Topshop) that we’d love to see her wear for her VMA performance debut!

We think Demi would look absolutely BANANAS in this strapless A-line Versace number. It may be Fall 2012 couture, but the lemon yellow and lime green of this color palette, not to mention the striated construction of this truncated ballgown just scream summer stage ensemble to us. PLUS, she could totally layer a black leather moto jacket or studded denim topper over this, as we know she’s wont to do.

Demi has made UK retailer Topshop a TOTAL go-to for her everyday steez (see her entire X-Factor press tour wardrobe), but we also know she likes to kick things up a notch for awards shows à la that GORGE Falguni & Shane Peacock from this year’s Teen Choice Awards. THUS, we think it might be cool if she married the two with this Mary Katrantzou blue patterned number. MK did, after all, once collaborate with Topshop, so it’s not too far of a jump. Also, that updated peplum is EVERYTHING and verrrry reminiscent of Emma Watson’s Brood Movie Awards dress.

Finally, though her bestie Selena wore this collection on the cover of Elle this summer, we still think this Balmain is up for grabs for Miss Lovato. Actually, for everyone because this season with all its baroque opulence and lavish embellishments is mind-bendingly amazing. Rather than the three-quarter sleeve shift Sel wore, we’d like to see Demi in this mini + vest number because it’s a little punkier, and we think Demi would really go for that.
