VMA Red Carpet 2012

The fashion choices at this year's VMA awards did not seem to stand out as boldly as other events. Most female nominees were dressed in delicate fabrics, long dresses and relatively safe designs. But this night is more about the performances than the outfits. Some celebrities donned shorter outfits but there was an overwhelming amount of trailing, ballgown ensembles. Even tomboy punk singer Pink wore a Stella McCartney floor-length metallic dress with a highly coiffed peroxide hair. Miley Cyrus was out on the carpet for the first time in cropped haircut which did clash a bit with her Jolie-like black silk organza dress. With a return more traditional feminine shapes and styles, the outfits had a much softer touch than some of the outrageous couture-ish outfits of 2011.

Alicia Keys appeared in a glamourous yet futuristic floor-length olive gold gown.

Miley Cyrus looked very grown up in Emilio Pucci, a feminine cut with dramatic cutouts.

Katy Pery played it (relatively) safe this year - her hair a natural colour and in a trailing Elie Saab gown.

Emma Watson appeared in a playful Peter Pilotto ensemble, an unusual mix of colours for her but it worked well, paired with simple black heels.

Zoe Saldana has been a favourite on this year's red carpet in Salvatore Ferragamo, the neutral mini flattering her shape and natural look.
