Few events make for a better fashion spectacle than those at which the music industry congregates to honor and attempt to one-up each other in weird costumes. So let's take a look at what divas wore to the MTV Europe Awards, which took place over the weekend. See Rihanna's frills, Kanye West's modest tee, Jared Leto's tight white zipper pants, Katy Perry's (you guessed it!) fireworks, and Eva Longoria Parker's ham costume in the slideshow.
Jared Leto and Kanye West
Kanye's shirt says "JESUS IS LORD," which is actually quite a modest choice, for him especially. Jared's look makes up for that.
And everyone thinks they can only wear their wedding unitards one time.
This Marchesa was a coup for her, resulting in one of her best looks in recent memory. Plus if she needs a shoulder to lean on, she can just user her own.
See, she really IS growing!
Katy Perry and Eva Longoria Parker
We like this Katy Perry look if only because it's one of the rare instances she's not dressed as an inanimate object or piece of fruit or dragon-boobed superhero. We like Eva's look as well, because she finally gave up on the bottoms, which weren't serving her much purpose anyway. That's sartorial honesty for you.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Why, it's a ticket! So that's how Russell Brand gets around.
Some might think white satin panties were inappropriate for a girl of Miley's age.
But her eighteenth birthday is almost here, and she has to prepare.
It's Karl Lagerfeld meets that skirt you threw away four years ago. On the other hand, those are coming back!
Ah, this is better. If she's going to own this aesthetic she really needs a tail growing out of her hip.
Eva Longoria Parker
Eva hosted the awards show, changing ten times throughout the night. This ham costume is not only a strange and amusing way to pay homage to Madrid and Lady Gaga, but also a perfect representation of what it means to change outfits ten times in one night.
Eva Longoria Parker
See? She was working her way toward the leotard all night.
At first you're like, "Oh, what a fun skirt!!"
And then you're like, "Oh no — pants! Fun hairy dance pants!"
Pauly D and Snooki
Comparatively, they look like they're going to prom in dress and attitude — like they feel really awkward touching each other and really need some booze.
Don't you love how she never changes? Doesn't it grow on you in a twisted way? No? Just us? Such consistency in taste at 16 years of age is rare.
...Just for the taste of it?
And there was at least one normal cocktail dress.
