If you don’t read Go Fug Yourself, and you’re reading this, then you’re making one serious mistake in your online reading. The Fug girls dissect the latest celebrity style, in a pithy fashion I can only dream of. But what’s that? One should try to realise one’s dreams? Today will be dedicated to showcasing the style that was on offer at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday evening, where Kanye West didn’t storm the stage during Taylor Swift’s performance. That’s about the most notable happening of the night, but, sure, didn’t they all look swell? Well, no, not really . . .

Number one: Lady Gaga

There’s something gloriously reassuring about Gaga’s insane sartorial decisions. It’s a bit as if, if Lady Gaga didn’t turn up looking insane, then what else would go awry in life?! Here she is in Armani, with those McQueen shoes, arriving at the party. You know, as you do, with a harem of handsome, burly men and white/blue hair.

But of course! Why eat it, when you can wear it?! We’re all shouting “controversy” at this but, really, Tyra did it first – and better – several cycles of America’s Next Top Model ago. Next?!

This might be my favourite photograph from the whole night. Here’s Gaga, in Armani again, with Sue Sylvester! And Cory Monteith! And look! They all look so happy! Gaga looks as if she may be taking a break from being deep and alternative, and genuinely enjoying winning that award that everyone knew she was going to win.

What do you think of Gaga’s MTV rigouts?!
