VMAs 2013 Best and Worst Dressed Red Carpet Photos

best dressed vmas

The MTV Video Music Awards of 2013 featured the usual mixed bag of red carpet looks--some of them simply stunning and others ... not so much.

Five who were definitely rocking their glam: Selena Gomez, Ciara, Taylor Swift, and a pair of reality stars--Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and her sidekick Jenni 'JWoww' Farley.

The lovely ladies in our second grouping  landed slightly lower on our radar but were definitely not fashion misses: Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Paula Patton, Shailene Woodley and Jordin Sparks.

not bad not spectacular vmas

Our least favorite looks were worn by Erin Wasson, Richard Simmons, Miley Cyrus, Sarah Highland and Jennifer Hudson.

We must confess, this year there were far more candidates who fell into the Worst Dressed category than landed on the Best Dressed.  Check out Lil Kim, Rita Ora, Ashanti, Becky G and Coco Rocha.
