We’ve already shown you what Lady Gaga wore to the MTV Music Video Awards last night, now here are some of the celebrities she was attempting to steal the limelight from.  Remember to tell us what you thought of these outfits – who was your favourite and least favourite?

Above – Katy Perry, in a dress we could’ve sworn we’ve seen her in before…

Pink & Shakira

Pink & Shakira

 Pink and Shakira in “Same Dress” Shocker. Now THAT has to have been embarrassing…

Amerie

Look, she’s wearing a cape, like a superhero! Shoeperwoman would LOVE that.

Jennifer Lopez

What’s with the sling, JLo?

Kanye West & Amber Rose

Kanye West & Amber Rose

Amber came as a snake. Kanye came as a drunk.

Taylor Swift

At least Taylor Swift looked great…

Keri Hilson

Keri Hilson

The good thing about attending the same event as Lady Gaga is that even a low-cut jumpsuit starts to look like a refreshingly classy choice of attire.

Alexa Chung

“Back away from me with that hairbrush! No hairbrush! I mean it!”

Leighton Meester

Like a box of chocolates, we never know what we’re going to get with Leighton. Today we’re getting “meh”. Interesting.

Beyonce

Beyonce

You know the “legs OR cleavage” rule? Beyonce didn’t get that memo. And she doesn’t care.

Madonna

Madonna

“THIS is what to wear with thigh high boots, bitches.”

Over to you readers: whose outfits did you love and loathe?

    hah! I knew a open skirt was the thing to wear with the high boots!! okay she used a open coat but… same principle!!! 😛
    Now I wondering if Madonna reads the site….
    Kayne is too bore me, now I think I hate him… dammit I’m sure that is what he wants…
    But even if pink and Shakira got the same dress they kinda of give it a different look, and they both look quite nice. (Maybe I symphatize as I got the same dress as other girl on my graduation…. and she looked nicer on it -.-)

    Beyonce almost has it. Taylor looks great but I’m not sure its the best choice for the event. Amber’s outfit is a joke, a really bad joke.

    Leighton and Tyalor look great, I think! Taylor is a tad overdressed for the VMA’s, I think, but still looks great.

    Manu!

    Beyonce looks cheaper every time, and Katy is wearing a figure skating costume! oh, and I love Pink’s and Shakira’s nervous laughs, trying to hide the “I’ll kill you bitch” thought.

    Why is Katy Perry wearing a figure skating outfit?

    At list Pink and Shakira seem to be taking it in good spirit. The fact that they both look great probably helps.

    I think Kanye’s costume is actually supposed to be a raging asshat, not just a drunk.

    Alexa Chung’s dress looks like it belongs on the sort of creepy doll that dotty old ladies collect by the dozens and then they’re just _staring_ at you when you visit and it haunts your nightmares for years to come and I seem to have strayed from the subject. But seriously, doll collections freak me out.

    I wish Beyonce’s skirt had a few more inches on it; on the other hand, if I had her body I would flaunt it at every opportunity, too.

    Taylor Swift’s is definitely my favorite! I think Keri Hilston looks pretty good too, even though idk who she is.

    You mean Kanye came as a JACKASS.

    I’m glad Pink and Shakira were nice about the whole “same dress” storm. That could’ve gotten OOGLY.

      Katy Perry’s dress is trashy. I don’t like it.

      Jennifer Lopez looks like she was putting on her dress and it got twisted around her neck, but she was late so she just said to hell with it and left before she could fix the dress. Not a good look.

      Pink and Shakira seem to be taking the “wearing the same dress” thing well, but I bet they were both really annoyed. I think Shakira wore it better; I like her boots.

      Amer Rose needs a bra.

      Madonna looks great.

      Alexa Chung’s look is a mish-mash. The dress is girly and the boots are edgy and her hair is casual. Huh?

      Beyonce always looks terrible, and this is no exception.

    I’ve always loved Katy Perry’s style, and yesterday was no exception.
    While Pink and Shakira must have been embarassed, they both look gorgeous. Ten plus points for both.
    Okay, J-Lo just looks silly. Why would she ruin such a pretty little dress with those awkward sleeve things?! WHY?!
    I’m not entirely sure who Amber Rose is, but her outfit is a crappier version of Christian Siriano’s beautiful one. Oh, and I’m totally biased, but I dislike Kanye in all aspects so… dumbass.
    And to finish off my beast of a comment, Taylor Swift looks beautiful. I am completely and utterly biased, but she’s basically my idol, so SHE LOOKS EFFING AMAZING.

    Alison:
    Amber Rose needs a bra.

    I second that. In fact this is my fashion pet peeve these days that a lot of women think they can do without a bra when in fact it ruins what could have been a perfectly good styling… I don’t know who started this trend, but it’s been going on waaaay to long already!
