While Miley Cyrus cycled through 10 outfits in the evening (take a look at all of them HERE), other presenters, performers and personalities were limited to just one. Who among them topped our list of best dressed and who found themselves at the bottom of the dirty clothes hamper?
Nicki Minaj won Best Hip-Hop Video for "Anaconda" and was a winner on the red carpet too. She rocked a gold gown by Labourjoisie that was dripping with beads and sequins. Her on-stage partner, Taylor Swift, also donned Labourjoisie prior to the show, although she opted for a crop top and matching pants.
While these women were tops when it came to both fashion and awards, others were not so fortunate. Consider the likes of Kim Kardashian. She accompanied hubby Kanye West who was being feted with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. To get a gander of her get-up, click through the photo gallery below.
