STORY: Music's biggest stars showed off their latest fashions on Sunday (August 24), as they walked the red carpet ahead of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in Inglewood, California.
Singer Jennifer Lopez sparkled in a silver Charbel Zoe gown, while Miley Cyrus - known for her famous 'twerking' performance at last year's VMAs - wore a black, leather two-piece ensemble from Alexandre Vauthier.
Meanwhile, singer Taylor Swift showed off her legs in a long-sleeved bodysuit from Mary Katrantzou, while Iggy Azalea donned a curve-hugging metallic gown from Atelier Versace.
Since launching in 1984, MTV's VMAs have become synonymous with irreverence and unscripted moments that have become part of music history. While Beyonce and Iggy Azalea lead the nominees with eight nods each on Sunday, all eyes were on whoever delivered the most outrageous planned or unplanned stunt.
Miley Cyrus, who set tongues wagging last year with her raunchy "twerking" during her VMAs performance, said on the red carpet this year that she "retired" her grinding explicit dance moves, adding "It's not about twerking, it's about the music."
But while Cyrus has retired the twerk, rapper Nicki Minaj brought her rump-grinding to kick off the show with hip hop song "Anaconda," scantily-clad and twerking against a jungle-themed backdrop.
