The MTV Video Music Awards has got to be the circus of the award season - it wouldn't be the VMAs without a little controversy.
While there have certainly been memorable moments on stage - who can forget the liplock shared by Britney Spears and Madonna or Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift's award acceptance speech in VMAs gone past, the red carpet is not to be overshadowed; although we are still trying to wrap our heads around Miley Cyrus' bizarre girls gone wild performance with Robin Thicke.
The VMAs red carpet is where celebrities have brought out their A-game for the best and the what-was-she-thinking fashion stakes - Lady Gaga's meat dress is still burned into our brains to this day.
herworldPLUS presents the 10 must-see looks on the red carpet of the 2013 MTV VMAs.
Ciara in Givenchy
The singer was a vision in Givenchy haute couture. The strategically-placed crystal details kept the sheer dress on the right side of NC-16 while the feathered hemline was stunning and not the least showgirl. Well-played Ciara!
Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace
Again, Gomez reminds us her Disney princess days are over with this curve-hugging number from Atelier Versace that was sexed up with part of the lace bustier exposed and a higher-than-thigh slit up the side.
