The VMAs rolled into LA last night, and some of the hottest names in TV, film, and music stepped out to party inside the Staples Center. We were on the red carpet capturing all the fun, and stars like Pink, Rita Ora, and Alicia Keys took it upon themselves to keep fans updated on Twitter and Instagram. US gymnast McKayla Maroney met up with Taylor Swift backstage and actress Rebel Wilson showed off some personalized accessories she wore to the show. Rita Ora got excited to meet a few of her youngest fans while Katy Perry joked around with friends inside the arena.

That's a wrap on yet another MTV VMAs! Bet you could have predicted that the star-studded night came complete with eye-popping performances, plenty of jokes from host Kevin Hart, and — oh yes — one or two of those silver Moonmen. There's plenty of eye candy from the red carpet all the way to the press room, so take a look at the highlights of the evening.

The MTV Video Music Awards brought plenty of stars out to the Staples Center in LA tonight. The carpet kicked off with Miley Cyrus and Rihanna both showing off their short hairstyles, and the fun continued inside with Pink, Taylor Swift, and One Direction taking the stage. Robert Pattinson and his Twilight costars also took the spotlight to debut a new clip from Breaking Dawn Part 2. Big winners included Rihanna, who took home video of the year, One Direction, Drake, and Coldplay. Click through to see all the action from the VMAs now.
Taylor Swift wore not one but two fabulous outfits last night at the MTV VMAs! She started with an off-white J. Mendel suit and gold Tom Ford sandals, then later changed into a casual outfit during her performance. We love her red-carpet look as a fun alternative to a dress at a fancy party and her striped top and shorts ensemble for a laid-back but cute weekend look. Get a closer look at both outfits, then shop similar pieces for yourself.
MTV brought back the iconic Moonmen tonight for the annual Video Music Awards. The show was jam-packed with music's biggest stars, like Rihanna, Drake, One Direction, Katy Perry, and more. If you missed out, take a gander at our list of which nominees took home top honors!

Rihanna and Pink were just a couple of the artists who showed up on stage at the VMAs this year. Some rocked it out (looking at you, Green Day), and some kept it a little quieter (Frank Ocean's just a sentimental kind of guy), but they all put their best foot forward to entertain fans. Take a look through all the performances and let us know: did you love them or loathe them?

The list of all the winners, and more MTV VMAs fun:
The VMAs are famous for their shocking red-carpet looks, but this year was far more notable for achieving quite the opposite effect. To start, Rihanna hit all the right notes in a curve-hugging white gown, Miley Cyrus turned it out in a darker sheer-paneled Emilio Pucci number, and Katy Perry appealed to her softer side in an embellished Elie Saab dress. What's the common dressing denominator here? These stylishly daring starlets opted for more sophisticated gowns this time around. That's right: no provocative cutouts, prints, or slits to be found — at least, not provocative by rockstar standards. However, a seriously eye-catching jumpsuit has been spotted. With even more standout outfits from Emma Watson, Rashida Jones, and Taylor Swift on deck, be sure to check out our up-to-date guide to who wore what at the MTV VMAs now.
Rihanna started tonight's MTV VMAs with a rowdy performance of her new song "Cockiness," and host Kevin Hart was on stage afterward to start the jokes coming. He verged into some potentially awkward territory when he tried to end the feud between Drake and Chris Brown, both of whom went on to win awards later. Kevin even leaped to Kristen Stewart's defense in his opening riff about mistakes. Katy Perry popped up to present the first award, best pop video, to One Direction. One Direction also later claimed best new artist. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, joined his Twilight buddies Peter Facinelli, Taylor Lautner, and more to debut a new clip from their upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2.
As for the performances, Miley Cyrus introduced Pink, who put on a boisterous show. Frank Ocean, welcomed by Zoe Saldana, had one of the night's most moving onstage appearances and was followed by Lil Wayne, One Direction, and Green Day. Alica Keys, who took in the fun alongside husband Swizz Beatz and their son Egypt, debuted her new song "Girl on Fire." Taylor Swift also wore her signature red to belt out "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." The final Moonman went to video of the year honoree Rihanna for "We Fell in Love." She made a triumphant speech after brushing some dirt off her shoulder — make sure to check out who wore what on the red carpet and the full list of 2012 MTV VMAs winners.
