Mary Hawkins | Aug 26, 2013 Beauty & Style

Miley CyrusYou know you're really starting to get older when you catch yourself saying, "OMG! That's disgusting!" at least six or seven times during the MTV Video Music Awards. And while most of the appalling stuff that took place was during the performances of the show -- some of the bad moments happened on the red carpet too.

Apparently the 2013 VMAs weren't the place to dress to impress this year, which is why there were definitely more hits than misses in the fashion department. Actually, finding a few looks that were deserving of any sort of positive recognition was a bit of a challenge -- but somehow I managed.

  • Shailene Woodley -- Best

    How awesome was this ensemble? Shailene looks sexy and youthful without being flashy or over-the-top.

  • Katy Perry -- Worst

    What the heck was going on with Katy's dress? Was she supposed to look like a leopard or a peacock? I can't tell.

  • Naya Rivera -- Best

    Simple, sleek, sexy, and gorgeous. Naya nailed it with this dress.

  • Miley Cyrus -- Worst

    Y'all? Do I really have to elaborate, here? (Hideous.)

  • Taylor Swift -- Best

    Yes, Taylor's gown really was beautiful. (Too bad her immature attitude during the show didn't come close to matching her sophisticated look.)

  • Selena Gomez -- Worst

    Oh, Selena. Did you raid Miley's closet? Or Gaga's? (I'm sorry, but the bustier really cheapened her overall look.)
