Not since the 1998 Video Music Awards has such a possible wardrobe malfunction occurred! As seen below, divas Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston both rocked the same brown dress during the show. Mariah's was just a tad shorter and more scandalous, but can't expect anything less.
Fast forward to 2009 — just over 10 years later — and singers Pink and Shakira have committed the same "sin": both are wearing the same Balmain leather dress (the only noticeable difference is the "She Wolf" singer wore knee-high black boots, while Pink chose black heels). Obviously sparkly, black and short is very appropos for the VMAs, so we're not going to knock these ladies for trying, but shouldn't their stylists maybe have been more aware?
Who do you think wore the black mini better: Shakira or Pink?
The crowd was madly cheering "Taylor! Taylor!" at Radio City, and we totally know why. After all, how suave does the real-life Jacob look all cleaned up and in a suit? We're used to him in red-carpet get ups that are more casual, so it was a nice surprise to get a glimpse of him in Calvin Klein.
During his interview with costar (and Fashion Correspondent!) Ashley Greene, Taylor admitted that the performance he's most looking forward to seeing during the VMAs is that of a person who shares his first name's with and stars with in the gigantic ensemble "Valentine's Day": Taylor Swift. Oh, how much we would love to hear Taylor (Swift) pen a love song for Taylor (Lautner). It can be about werewolves and their fluctuating hearts. See, we can practically write it for her.
Nate Archibald's transition from high school student to college co-ed has done wonders for Chace Crawford. We're not sure which designer he's draped his hot self in, but our red carpet source says "He's wearing a black suit, white button-down and no tie." Only real men can rock no ties.
Curiously, he didn't stop for fashion correspondent extraordinaire Ashley Greene. Remember back during the Teen Choice awards when they were caught flirting by our cameras and then later swapping spit? Maybe the newest rumers about him and model Bar Rafeli are in fact true? That's too bad, we liked the idea of a "Gossip Girl"/"New Moon" crossover!
Like we said yesterday, the lyrics to the theme song for "Fame" are utterly infectious. Even we wanted to get up off our seat, jump on top of our desk and bust out with "Remember my name... FAME...!" after we watched the premiere of the music video just now. Of course, our officemates here who are currently working hard on the rest of VMA night might give us some odd looks, so instead of showing off some of (no doubt awesome) dance moves, we've decided to gift you with something even better: the full music video in all it's remixed glory.
Press play above to learn how to fly, and after the jump check out what a few of the movie's stars (including Naturi Naughton whose powerful vocals you heard throughout the song) had to say about the movie. Read More...
Paging Kristen Stewart! It seems Katy Perry might be trying to steal your weapons-on-a-red-carpet style. OK, so KStew's Rock & Republic dress from the Teen Choice Awards wasn't exactly a weapon, but those bullet-ish things on the skirt looked positively painful to sit on. Katy Perry's VMA dress reminds us a lot of the "New Moon" star's previous fashion choice. Not because it's silver, sparkly or sexy of course (could you even imagine Kristen in sparkles?), but because it has tiny spikes coming out of the side by her hips. We're just hoping whomever she sits next to during the ceremony doesn't try to sit too close!
The "New Moon" starlet Ashley Greene has gone all out in the style department as the MTV Video Music Awards Fashion Correspondent! Check her out below as she arrives on the red carpet wearing an outfit worthy of a diva (we can most see Beyonce in something similar): A Dolce & Gabbana dress, Bulgari jewelry, and Jimmy Choo strappy heels.
This is a total 180 from her typical pixie-like Alice Cullen look, especially because those extensions give her a much more mature look. What do you say Twi-Hards? Is this is a win or a lose?
Today is an extremely special day for Twilight fans. Sure, you probably already know it's the debut of the extended New Moon trailer at the VMAs, and its going to be presented by Kristen, Rob and Taylor, and Ashley Greene is going to be a fashion correspondent tonight. Old news.
But did you also know today marks the birthdays of Bella Swan ? And that it's also Stephenie Meyer day in Forks in honor of the "Twilight" author? Read More...
When we caught up with rising young star Anna Kendrick at the Toronto Film Festival, where she's promoting her co-starring role with George Clooney in "Up in the Air," we had one big question in mind...has she seen the brand new trailer for "New Moon"?
"I did," she exclaimed, "[but] it was a very, very small video and it was very blurry, so I'm looking forward to seeing it in a big theater." Well, that makes two of us, Anna, but if you want to see the expanded trailer with even more never-before-seen footage, you'll have to tune into the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT where we're airing the exclusive full-length trailer for "New Moon" for the first time. Check out Anna's thoughts below, including her comparison between heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Clooney.

To get you ready for the dancing, singing and totally infectious lyrics ("FAME! I wanna live forever..." — see, it's already stuck in our heads!) we're offering you a few exclusive stills from the video so you can see what kinda of dancing-in-the-streets (and apparently on cars) you're in store for.
