While the VMAs red carpet is always a hotbed of buzz-worthy fashion moments, our eyes are always firmly planted north of the neck. The hair and makeup these stars sport tends to be just as shocking as their sartorial choices. But, at this year's VMAs, things took a more subtle turn. There were no wacky hairstyles, no crazy beauty looks — even Ms. Miley Cyrus herself kept things seriously understated. Talk about shock value.
Although the hair and makeup focused on the pretty over the outrageous, there was still plenty to talk about (and fawn over). Ahead, we rounded up our 10 favorite looks of the night. These may be the most wearable styles we've ever seen on a VMAs red carpet — and we're not hating it.
