When judging the best and worst dressed on the 2012 MTV VMA red carpet, we make an exception for no one. Artists of all genres came together to celebrate their accolades and amazing performances, so we expected everyone to come out dressed in their best.  As Rihanna, Pink, and Miley Cyrus sported their cute short do’s, their style was on point.

2 Chainz, donned in Versace and gold, looked as if he and rapper Tyga had the same stylist and walked the line between stylish and tacky.  Nicki Minaj never disappoints her fellow worst-dressed candidates, as she unveils another skin-tight colorful outfit, and sadly, when others overdo, singer Frank Ocean and Olympic medalists joined Nicki Minaj on the worst-dressed list.
