As the VMA clock continues to count down to tomorrow's (Thursday, September 6!) star-studded show, everyone and everything VMA-related is in final preparation mode. The stage is being set, rehearsals are in full swing, final wardrobe fittings have been scheduled and finishing touches are being added to the first ever double-decker red carpet.

You might be wondering, how are the assorted nominees and attendees preparing for their red-carpet appearances? MTV News sought out "Teen Wolf" star Tyler Posey and "Awkward" star Molly Tarlov to get their tips and tricks on how to best maximize a walk down a red carpet. Both Posey and Tarlov have attended their fair share of A-list events, including previous VMAs, and as such, the real-life pals revealed that they're willing to change-up their usual carpet-walking routine.

"Everyone has kind of a different red-carpet style. I want to work on perfecting the 'not smile' look," said Tarlov of the closed lip 'photograph face' perfected by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes, etc. "I always smile."

"I always smile," admitted Posey. "I don't like that [no smile] look. I feel like that's weird."

"I know, but I feel like I should be able to do it," Tarlov said.

"Oh no, you definitely could," said Posey, which prompted both TV stars to strike their best red carpet photograph faces, Tarlov showed us her "no smile" face while Posey showed off his "cheesy grin" photo face.

"See the contrast?" Posey asked, clearly pleased with their demonstration.

"Do we both look good doing it?" Tarlov asked.

We think they nailed it. What do you think?
