Red Carpet Recap: The VMAs

Proving that MTV's Video Music Awards is not your typical awards show, the red carpet at the VMAs was white.

The celebrities who worked the white carpet took a back seat to the woman who owned the night -- Lady Gaga. With a collection of over-the-top gowns (many by the late Alexander McQueen) and coordinating headpieces, not only did the superstar make her presence known in the world of fashion, she also cleaned up with multiple wins. She won Video of the Year, Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Best Collaboration with Beyonce.

In a rare moment, a designer was mentioned in an acceptance speech; Lady Gaga thanked McQueen for supplying clothing for her videos. Perhaps the only thing that rivaled Lady Gaga's get-ups were the elaborate onstage sets. And maybe, just maybe, Kayne West's red suit. (Yikes!)
Even though Lady Gaga stole the spotlight on many levels, my top look of the night had to be Selena Gomez, making her the 2010 VMA's White Carpet MVP.

The 18-year-old "Wizards of Waverly Place" star was a presenter and wore a strapless silver Reem Acra gown with a embellished bustier and high slit. She added a hint of color (blue) to the look with blue-toned jewels on her dress, blue hues in her make-up and with an oversized blue ring and simple drop earrings.

Her strappy silver shoes gave her extra height and her sleek side ponytail kept her look young.

New Jersey's Erica Salmon founded Fantasy Fashion League, which has now evolved into Red Carpet MVP -- a game "for the celebrity and fashion obsessed!"
