So Beyonce picked up three awards, Leona Lewis cracked out another belter and Pixie Lott was announced as the Best Push Artist (no, we don’t have a clue either). But what we really want to know is who wore what at the MTV Europe Music Awards extravaganza last night and luckily for you, we’ve formulated a round-up of the best dressed...

Before Beyonce wowed the crowd in her David Koma number, the diva arrived at the awards dressed in a shimmering Atelier Versace A/W ‘09 gown that perfectly exaggerated her famously voluptuous figure. The warrior-esque bodice plays up to her Sasha Fierce persona but the soft pink quartz hue and sweeping fan shaped train keeps it ever so feminine. This one’s a real winner! In contrast, Pixie Lott chose to keep it short and sweet in her D&G ruffled frock but added a touch of bling courtesy of her fabulous embellished wedges and matching cuff. Cute!

Woah where did those legs come from?! Joss Stone gave us quite a surprise when she ditched her usual boho vibe and brought some sexy back with a pair of very on-trend OTK boots and slinky mini-dress. Shakira also opted to flash some serious leg in her metallic mesh Versace dress with black Swarovski shoulder detailing. We’re loving her mix of old and new as she teamed her vintage frock with those fierce Versace S/S ‘10 heels.

And now it’s time to pay homage to the event’s style chameleon of the night, Katy Perry. As the hostess with the mostess, she changed outfits not once, not twice but a whopping 12 times, turning the awards ceremony into her own personal catwalk. Bring on the frockathon!

For starters, Katy looked ever so sophisticated when she walked the red carpet in an elegant pink Marchesa S/S ‘10 gown with embroidered ebony flowers. And just like Beyonce’s floor-sweeper, this gown really makes the most of those killer curves.

For Katy’s next costume change, she chose a conventional strapless mini-dress and black YSL heels, reminding us that Mr Brand is one lucky boy. She sensibly kept her accessories to a minimum so as not to distract from the sparkling jeweled panel. But if you thought Katy would continue to play it safe, think again!

Ta da! We were convinced Lady Gaga would be the first to brave Viktor and Rolf’s wacky designs (aside from that rather stylish alien). But Katy proved that her kooky sartorial status is on the rise courtesy of this fabulous tulle ball gown with cut-out holes from the designers’ bonkers S/S ‘10 collection.

Next up was this show-stopping sparkler by Georges Chakra which added a splash of Hollywood glamour to the proceedings. We’re loving the vibrant blue hue and glistening sequins of the Couture gown– we just hope she didn’t trip up on all those tassles!

And finally, the hostess channelled her eccentricities into this ultra feminine frock from Marchesa’s S/S ‘10 collection, the very same that Camilla Belle worked so well last month. And although it’s not easily done, Katy perfectly pulls off the beautiful white feathers and lace bodice of this charming number, proving she’s no ugly duckling but a rather graceful (and oh-so-fashionable) swan. Top marks all round!
