The best of the MTV Video Music Awards

April 16, 2013
Kerry Washington always looks fabulous, but her outfit was especially sophisticated at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

Most people love award shows because we not only get to see our favorite stars praised for all their hard work, but what they are wearing as well. The MTV Video Music Awards, which aired on Sunday, April 14, was no exception.

From gorgeous dresses to impeccably tailored suits, the attendees at this event drew both praise and criticism with their outfits. At, here are our picks for the best dressed celebrities of the night:

1) Emma Watson
Her Maxime Simoens cut-out dress was not only effortlessly cool, it was age-appropriate. Her luxury shoes crafted by Proenza Schouler are to die for. Far too often, Hollywood starlets try to dress older than they are, which makes them appear as if they are trying too hard. Watson knows the importance of embracing her youth, which is why she’s constantly on the best-dressed lists.

2) Selena Gomez
What’s not to love about a long-sleeve gold metallic mini-dress designed by Julien Macdonald? This frock had the perfect amount of sparkle without being over-the-top. The fringe at the bottom added an extra hip factor.

3) Karlie Kloss
We say if you’ve got it, flaunt it! That’s exactly what model Karlie Kloss did. She showed off her svelte figure in a white Cushnie Et Ochs cropped top and matching high-waisted pencil skirt.

4) Kerry Washington
It’s not easy wearing a high-low dress, but Washington executed it perfectly. The combination of orange and black looked chic and anything but Halloween-like. We loved seeing her hair swept back in a chignon, which let her outfit shine.
