The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards is always an eye-catching time as some of the most talked about musicians walk the red carpet. This year, the stars will be able to experience a one-of-a-kind, double-decker red carpet. How amazing is that? It will be interesting to watch how they manage the trek wearing high heels. While we wait for tonight's show, let's take a look at some of the most outrageous looks from the past few years.

Lil Kim-1999

All decked out in pretty purple, Lil Kim did not look so pretty in this way too revealing pant suit. Or was it half a pant suit? The nipple patch was very extreme, but then again, so is this outrageous girl. This was one way to get attention.


Sprouting spiked pink hair in 2000, the 32-year-old had on rolled up jeans that were cut out to reveal her hip lines and a metallic faux-fur coat. She sure has come a long way since then.

Britney Spears-2002

What was she thinking? The black ensemble that she had on in 2002 looked like she was all decked out for an early Halloween. The low-cut, extremely snug outfit included see-through arm length gloves, a shiny beret, and shoes that were laced up to her knees. The "Oops, I Did it Again" singer definitely had an 'oops' moment.

Christina Aguilera-2002

This outfit worn by "The Voice" judge was all over the place back in 2002. She had on a very short denim skirt and a shirt that looked like a piece of drapery placed around her neck for decoration. It barely covered her chest and looked highly uncomfortable. The "Dirty" singer also had black and grey hair that hung loosely across her top. Luckily, she has better fashion sense these days.


The Black Eyed Peas singer looked like she just stepped right out of the filming of "Grease." Her fifties take of fashion for the red carpet in 2004 wasn't her best. She sported a pink top with the name 'Chic-Pea' on the front and black pants. Her hair was up in a ponytail with her curly bangs hanging off to the side. The 37-year-old even wore a classic scarf around her neck to complete this retro look.

Lady Gaga-2010

Who is the most outrageously dressed lady at the VMAs? Yes, Lady Gaga pretty much leads the way in this category. One of her most talked-about outfits was the multi-colored gown she had on in 2010. The dress wasn't too bad, but the gold feathers that was fitted on her scalp and those lobster-claw heels took the cake. How does she walk in those shoes? The "Bad Romance" singer is always known for her unusual designs. What will she have on this year?
