Purple  may have been the color of choice at the Emmys, but at last night's MTV Video Music Awards , the stars opted solidly for gold. Gold is, after all, one of fall's most pervasive trends . Even host Jack Black spent part of the night in a sparkly gold suit.
Christina Aguilera arrived wearing a beaded, nude-toned gown that glittered like gold — and also very much like the gown Best-Dressed Katherine Heigl  chose for the Emmys.
Petra Nemcova showed up in an adorable strapless shift-dress paired with some sort of weird gold-chain headband.
For other golden VMA looks,
Vanessa Minnillo got decked out in a tight-fitting strapless dress with a bustier-style top.
Whitney Port's golden frock had a full skirt and a lingerie-inspired feel.
Tune in later today for more fashion coverage from the VMAs.
