MTV Video Music Awards Pay Tribute to Robin Williams

The MTV Video Music Awards, a ceremony typically best known for revealing outfits and risque performances, turned serious for a few moments tonight.

The event paid tribute to Robin Williams, the Oscar-winning actor who took his own life two weeks ago, with a short montage of pictures of the star, backed by Coldplay‘s “A Sky Full of Stars."

Very sad stuff.

But the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards did not disappoint in terms of crazy, sexy fashion. See what we mean in the following gallery of photos:
