Red-carpet review: Beyonce bumps aside competition at VMAs

No one would ever turn to the annual MTV Video Music Awards in search of the most glamorous red-carpet fashions. Certainly there are star-studded events which lend themselves to a classier brand of celeb couture. But MTV's VMAs are always worth watching to see who turns up wearing what.

We skipped Lady Gaga's Jo Calderone drag act here, and Nicki Minaj in dayglo somesuch is nothing new, is it? Admittedly, the foursome we assembled here isn't pushing the envelope very far. But take a look at, from left, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Miley Cyrus -- we've got a little leg, a little pink hair, a couple long gowns. But the accessory everyone was talking about Sunday night wasn't Perry's umbrella. It was that bump under Beyonce's orange dress. Tough to beat that no matter what you dress it up with.

Was there anyone you saw at the VMAs that you loved or loathed? Talk about the event and the fashions here and on Facebook.
