Beyonce stole the show when she showed off her newest accessory, a baby bump. It almost didn't matter what she was wearing, yet here she is, looking flawless as usual in what already looks to be an epic maternity wardrobe.

Somewhere, a child weeps softly because Nicki Minaj made off with the contents of her toy chest.

While Lady Gaga's alter ego Jo Calderone's performance admittedly grew stale by the end of the VMAs, there's no denying that "his" opening monologue had hints of a present-day Al Pacino mixed with Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire. The singer does lose points for continuously smoking and drinking throughout the night, though.

Does anyone remember that toy "Lite Brite" from the late 1980s? Deena's dress reminds me of the patterns I attempted to make on my Lite Brite as a kid. Also, Snooki wants her children of the corn contact lenses back.

Although we must deduct points for the presence of a mullet dress (mini or maxi--pick a side!), Selena Gomez continued her red carpet hit parade with this Black Swan ice dancer number. Bonus points for wearing her hair in a rare updo hairstyle.

Pro: Justin Bieber finally ditched the earrings. Con: He brought a nude-colored snake named "Johnson" to the awards. Blatant euphemisms must be what the cool kids are doing these days.

Katy Perry's pre-show prep was as unconventional as her style choices throughout the show. The multi-Moonman winner topped off this "Pop Asian" look with newly-dyed cotton candy pink hair. Unfortunately, Perry's outfits took a dramatic downslide after this arrival look.

Not only did Demi Lovato look totally hot in a sparkly silver dress and a great two-toned wavy hairstyle, she took to Twitter to combat naysayers talking about her weight gain after having an eating disorder.

I don't know about you, but when I break my foot and have to crutch around in a walking cast, I use it as an opportunity to cancel my performance obligations and rest. I wish Jessie J felt similarly so we were spared her awkward song covers performed in an armchair during the show.

Flawless. One tiny gripe: What is with the cigarettes as accessories? Don't these celebrities know impressionable young teens are watching?

I like a sparkly Micky Mouse dress as much as the next girl, don't get me wrong, but I usually accessorize mine with red Chucks, not Dunks, and my natural hair.

Katie Holmes is wearing an eighth grade graduation dress, but she looks kind of cute, no? Do you think Suri picked her outfit?

From the knees up, this is the best Britney Spears has looked in a while. Now relax, Brit, you're not playing a toy soldier in the Rockettes' Christmas Spectacular.

The Jersey Shore girls are clearly falling under the influence of the "reality starlet's third season plastic surgery makeover" trend, but Snooki looks like she's trying to do it through exercise (and possibly some plastic surgery, but shhhh).

I love Reality Bites early '90s makeup, too, Crystal Reed! You and Leighton Meester have that in common. Here in the twenty-first century, however, showing up to an award show looking like this is perceived as a cry for help.
