Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora And More Are Best Dressed At 2013 MTV EMA

The MTV EMA have been host to some amazing fashion, from Selena Gomez’s parade of host outfits to Lady Gaga’s Paco Rabanne moment to a slew of other memorable performance looks, and tonight’s Amsterdam red carpet was no exception. Here are our favorite 2013 MTV EMA looks from the step-and-repeat!

IGGY AZALEA IN DILEK HANIF COUTURE

Talk about a knockout! Iggy Azalea is slaying it in all directions with this Dilek Hanif Couture gown from the Turkish designer’s Spring 2011 collection. (Side bar: exactly how many years have to pass before you can consider something “vintage”?) That asymmetrical neckline. Those side cut-outs. The red platform accent heels. THOSE MASSIVE NAVEL-HIGH SLITS. *pauses to catch breath* Also, a little P.S.A. from us and The New Classic herself: she is, in fact, wearing underwear.

MILEY CYRUS

Miley Cyrus’ East-meets-West B.I.G./Shakur red carpet ensemble may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we’re giving the girl props for not being boring. When the seasons start to change, it’s easy to get into a style rut (yes, even in fall, nature’s gift to fashion), but Miles is sailing through it with ease, holding hands with airbrushed t-shirt wearing angels. Plus, we can’t let the D.I.Y. magic courtesy of the Cyrus styling team (or whomever cut, sewed, and laced back up this shirt/dress) go unnoticed.

ARIANA GRANDE IN MIKAEL D

Ariana Grande may have taken a break from her long-time red carpet secret weapon, Kenley Collins, but her 2013 MTV EMA steez is just as cute and retro as always. Opting instead for a knee-length dress from designer Mikael D’s Resort 2012 collection, Ariana showed she can do bodycon, too, in pale satin with black lace embellishments. Grande finished the look off with simple black pumps and her signature cascade of curls.

ELLIE GOULDING IN DOLCE & GABBANA

Picking up on the black lace tip, Ellie Goulding wore the peekaboo fabric head-to-toe in a witchy gown by Dolce & Gabbana. The whole ~visible underwear~ thing might not work for everyone, but it certainly WERQUES for Ellie. Also, we appreciate that she kept her beauty and hair games fairly natural and toned down to balance the revealing outfit.

RITA ORA IN CALVIN KLEIN

By the looks of her stylist Jason Rembert’s Instagram, Rita Ora may have had a bit of a “fashion emergency” prior to the 2013 MTV EMA, but you’d never be able to tell otherwise. Rita was positively ravishing in this slinky black Calvin Klein number and her new platinum ’do—simple, sexy, chic.

KATY PERRY IN ZAC POSEN

Finally, the lady who refused to go black (on the step-and-repeat, anyway): Katy Perry. Before hitting the stage for the television premiere of her single “Unconditionally,” Katy wore a pastel turquoise dress from Zac Posen’s Resort 2014 collection (you know, just wearing things before they’re officially available, NBD). The intricate darting at the bust and waist really emphasized Katy’s *achem* assets, but the short sleeves, higher neck, and tea-length hem kept the look a little more covered up than we’re used to seeing Perry. Final touches on KP’s look included: a Dolce & Gabbana headband slathered in jewels, dusty rose pink Charlotte Olympia platform heels, and a solitaire diamond ring on her left hand, one finger in from her pinky…which obviously (OBVIOUSLY!) sparked rumors of an impending/now occurring engagement with John Mayer. *eyes bulge out of sockets*
