Miley Cyrus, Ciara and Snooki also come to the MTV Video Music Awards along with such male guests as Drake and Robin Thicke.
Big celebrities stepped out glittering the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, August 25 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Some of the female guests walking down the red carpet were the likes of Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Ciara, Ariana Grande and Ellie Goulding.
The Mother Monster traded her usual outlandish appearance with a more demure look for the VMAs. Set to perform her new song at the event, the "Applause" singer donned a Prabal Gurung leather fishtail dress with a ribbon-styled belt and plunging neckline. She toned down her makeup to minimum and finished off her look with chunky heels and vintage glasses.
Ready to "roar," Katy rocked bejeweled grill. She wore an Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2013 long-sleeved leopard print dress with a sexy side slit and gold embellishments around the neckline and shoulders. She put her long hair in a sleek high ponytail and finished off her appearance for the night with black-and-gold Celine sandals.
Also opting for a long gown was Rita Ora who sported a short bob hairdo. She stole attention with her Alex Vauthier Fall 2013 turquoise dress that had a deep-plunging top with crystal embellishments, a daring slit up her waist and a long flapper train. Her black-and-gold strap-ankle Louboutin sandals matched her belt.
Miley showed off some skin in a vintage Dolce&Gabbana outfit consisting of an off-shoulder cropped top with long bejeweled sleeves and tight long pants with matching stone details around the waist and left thigh. Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, sherry red lips and two little hair knots on top of her head completed her look.
Ciara donned a Givenchy sheer long dress with strategically placed crystal embroidery and feathers at the hemline. Ariana kept her youthful look as she opted for a Kenley Collins baby-blue short dress with flower print and finished it off with white pumps. British beauty Ellie Goulding went with a nude spiked dress with a high neck and a sexy slit.
Rapper Iggy Azalea rocked an Emilio Pucci Spring 2013 creation. It's a long column dress with gold-leaf embroidery on sheer nude veiling. Actress Paula Patton donned a Lever Couture strapless black sequined dress with a high slit while her husband, "Blurred Lines" hitmaker Robin Thicke, was in a suit with no tie.
MTV's "Jersey Shore" stars Snooki and JWoww were also spotted among the A-list crowd. Newly-reunited Danity Kane and "Divergent" actress Shailene Woodley attended the prestigious event as well, along with rappers Drake, Wiz Khalifa & A$ap Rocky and rising star Austin Mahone.
