The Red Carpet Photos We Can't Stop Staring At
TAYLOR & HER SQUAD STEAL THE SHOW
Why have one date to the VMAs when you can have nine? (Sorry, Calvin.) Swift and her BFFs' (a.k.a. the cast of "Bad Blood") arrival to the VMAs not only gives us major #squadgoals, but presents an opportunity for us to play "Where's Waldo?"
VANESSA CUDDLES A PUPPY
Because it was pretty genius of MTV to bring puppies (adoptable ones at that!) to the red carpet.
FRANKIE GRANDE SHINES
If you're not staring at Ariana's brother's glittery chest you must have your sunglasses on.
GIGI GORGEOUS DRESSES BEST
The YouTube star lives up to her last name in a VMAs look that can be described in two words: flawlessly fringe-tastic.
THOUGH WALK THE MOON AIN'T BAD, EITHER
You know their hit and now you'll remember their faces – or at least their paint-splattered suits.

NICKI STUNS – AND KNOWS IT
The VMAs' first performer of the night is all about her golden globes, er, goddess look, and we can't blame her.
KIMYE MAKES THEIR ENTRANCE
Sweats for him, a plunging dress for her, neutrals all around. Color us not shocked.
EMILY RATAJKOWSKI SHOWS HER STEMS
BIEBER DEBUTS A NEW 'DO
Is that you, Justin? The singer shows off a totally different look with his side-swept, half-dyed hair.
