VMA 2012 Red Carpet: All The Best And Worst Dressed Stars (PHOTOS)

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are a wrap and they were action packed as always!

Rihanna delivered an electrifying performance of "Cockiness," Lil Wayne crowd surfed, Gabby Douglas showed off her gold-winning moves during Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire," and the show's hot Kevin Hart was hands down hilarious.

And of course there were major fashion moments.

RiRi was a vision in white in a back gown that was sensational with her new pixie 'do. Alicia looked super glamorous in a shimmery gold gown complete with a thigh-high slit perfect for the pose du jour--The Angelina. And Nicki Minaj kept things interesting, per usual, in a full on lace catsuit with red sequin detailing and a head full of neon yellow and pink hued hair. Oh, Nicki--we really want to like your crazy ensembles, but yet again we're going to have to pass on this one. Sigh.

Here's a look those ladies and all our favorite stars at this year's VMAs. Make sure to vote on your favorite looks!
