MTV Video Music Awards Rewind: 2006 Red Carpet Arrivals

by at .  Updated at .

Ah, 2006.  The Hills had just premiered a few months prior, no one hated Chris Brown yet, and Pitbull wasn't wearing suits.

This Sunday, the MTV Video Music Awards brings viewers the best and most outrageous the music industry has to offer.

And while we're not sure what people will be talking about Monday morning, we can at least get to gossiping about what the world was like ten years ago (the world being Hollywood).

Get ready to feel all the feels of nostalgia, because we're dialing it back ten years.


1. Rihanna

She looks so...lady-like, so innocent.

2. Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson
Soooo there's Jessica Simpson. And somewhere nearby was her ex-husband, Nick Lachey. Both were presenters at that year's VMAs, which is OMGSoAwkward. Simpson and Nick Lachey announced their split the day before Thanksgiving 2005, and almost a month later, she filed for divorce after three years of marriage.

3. Nick Lachey and Nicole Richie

Nick Lachey and Nicole Richie
There he is! And no he wasn't hooking up with Richie. However, his future wife, Vanessa Minnillo was also at the VMAs that year so...

4. Vanessa Lachey

Vanessa Lachey
Lachey co-starred in the music video for her future husband's single, "What's Left of Me" back in April of that year, and were full-on dating by the time the VMAs came around.

5. Beyonce

Beyonce was promoting her second solo album, B'Day and performed during the awards show.

6. Pitbull

This is Pitbull. You may not recognize him without his jazzy suit.

7. Bam Margera

Bam Margera
Ugh, this one hurts a little. Margera had his own show on MTV, Viva La Bam back in 2006, but ten years later, Margera appeared on 'Family Therapy' and struggles with alcohol addiction.

8. Fergie and Abigail Breslin

Fergie and Abigail Breslin
It's 10-year-old Abigail Breslin! The child star was promoting 'Little Miss Sunshine,' which was released about a week before the show.

9. Ice-T and Coco

Ice-T and Coco
Little did this couple know that it wasn't their time just yet. In another five years they would find themselves with a reality tv show and a little girl. #Blessed

10. Whitney Port and Audrina Patridge

Whitney Port and Audrina Patridge
Snoozer and Snoozier Alert.

11. The Hogan Family

The Hogan Family
Hey look! It's the Hogans right before Hulk Hogan went and did some dumb sh** that would ultimately break up his family!

12. Heidi Montag and Lauren Conrad

Heidi Montag and Lauren Conrad
Heidi had gotten a new nose and a boob job, but little did we all know that she was just getting started.

13. Chris Brown

Chris Brown
Ugh, Chris Brown. It would be a few years before he would assault Rihanna and make everyone hate him forever.

14. Jared Leto

Jared Leto
Sometimes we forget that the Oscar winner has a band, 30 Seconds To Mars. Oh, how bright your future looks, Jordan Catalano!

15. Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez
Anthony and Lopez had been married for two years at this point (they later split in the summer of 2011).

16. Danity Kane

Danity Kane
Remember when Aubrey O'Day seemingly had her sh** together on 'Making The Band?' The good old days...

17. Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson
The Rock was just starting to dip his toes in the acting pool at this time, and good thing too because ten years later, he would becomes Forbes' highest-paid actor.

18. Ciara

Ciara? that you? Why are you dressed like you're going to a semi-formal?
