The MTV Video Music Awards took place in L.A tonight and OH! What a night. We've seen Katy Perry's homage to Britney Spears, Taylor Swift shaking it off Roxie Hart style and Beyonce being honored by her own hubby and daughter onstage. N'awww! But here on the beauty desk, it's time to discuss the makeup and hair looks that appeared at the glitzy event.
One dramatic look came courtesy of Rita Ora who added the drama of her Donna Karan dress by slicking back her blonde tresses and matching her lipstick to her crimson red gown. Phwoar indeed. Her pal Iggy Azeala went a similiar wet-look route but kept her makeup soft and natural, highlighting her pout with little more than a slick of gloss.

Ever adventurous in the beauty stakes, Gwen Stefani treated us to a retro twist a-top her head and a flash of neon pink lipstick. Hats off to Demi Lovato too who showcased her edgy undercut (nothing faux about this one) with a side-swept bob. Speaking of bobs, Taylor Swift's shaggy 'do is looking better than ever and it worked wonders when she took to the stage for a Chicago-inspired performance.
But it's Jourdan Dunn who gets our biggest beauty vote. Not only did she look like she was wearing baring any makeup (she probably DID wake up like this), the Brit model debuted a brand new blunt cut that perfectly frames her face. Inspired by Karlie Kloss perhaps? Who can blame the girl.
