MTV Video Music Awards: worst of the red carpet

There was plenty to love on the red carpet at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards ... but there were a couple who definitely hit a sour note.

Rihanna: If this look were a Project Runway challenge entry, it would evoke a thumb-on-the-chin-finger-on-the-jaw "I just don't get it" from Tim Gunn. The top is just "eh," while the skirt looks like a pile of painted newsprint. Sorry, Ri, we still love you, but it might be time for a little sit-down with your stylist ... if you can, in fact, sit down in this thing.

Katy Perry: "I kissed a girl and I liked it ... so much that I came to the VMAs dressed as an Esther Williams wanna-be." We can understand the overnight sensation's desire to make a splash at her first VMAs, but we wish she hadn't taken it so literally. Not that she doesn't have the bod for it—she definitely does—but there's definitely a "taste factor" at play here. (There we go with the Project Runway buzzphrases again.) Consider your splash made, girlfriend ... and next time, show us some actual style.
