Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock — or just watching “True Blood” and “Mad Men” — then you know last night was the MTV Video Music Awards. It was a fairly exciting show, what with Kanye West acting like an ass, Lady Gaga gettin’ her menstruation on, and Janet Jackson paying tribute to brother Michael. Fashion-wise, there were a lot of trends to watch on the red carpet: short, sparkly minis; edgy ‘dos; metallics; and loads of black abounded. Hands down, I thought the fiercest was Solange Knowles showin’ up big sister Beyoncé, while Lady Gaga was certainly, and expectedly, the freakiest. “The Hills” gals donned, for the most part, totally cute wearable looks, while Shakira and Pink wore the same leather mini (scandal!). The worst-dressed, in my book, went to Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon and “Twilight”‘s Ashley Greene. Oh and Alexa Chung? Effing perfection as always.
