2011 MTV VMA fever is officially in full swing and this year’s hottest celebs have just finished strutting their stuff at the 2011 MTV VMA Pre-Show!

The Black Carpet was a glittering kaleidoscope of celebrity frocks, and this year, the stars were determined not to disappoint as they all shamelessly vied for their place on the best dressed list of 2011!

Flashy outfits competed with eye-brow raising couture – but not everyone got it right on the night. So who blew us away (for all the right reasons), and who has just made their way into the Hall Of Shame? Check out our pics below and decide for yourself!

She’s no shrinking wallflower, but we recommend donning a pair of supersized sunnies when checking out Deena’s outfit! A pair of bright green-coloured contacts polish off the ‘Jersey Shore’ starlet’s look.



Not even a broken ankle was going to let the perennially stylish Jessie J from having her big moment on the MTV VMA black carpet! The super foxy UK songstress dazzled in a black strapless bodysuit paired with shimmering tights – and bedazzled crutches.



Selena Gomez can’t put a pedicured foot wrong! The teen starlet kept it classy and age appropriate with a black lace and satin gown – scoring plenty fashion kudos!



Never shy about putting their best assets on display, Jwoww and Snooki impressed by leaving the ugg-boots and Ed Harvey hats behind in Jersey, instead keeping it sassy, sexy and SHORT in these flesh baring numbers. Nice ladies!



Meanwhile, the boys put in a dapper appearance, with Pete Wentz showing off a new cropped do topped off with a sharp grey suit.



Justin Bieber is determined to show us he’s (almost) all grown up by pulling off bookish, sensitive and intelligent with a sharp pair of specs…



Meanwhile, the Madden brothers decided to ditch the suits in favour of some comfy punk rock get ups….



But stealing the show was Beyonce who was simply glowing! Pregnancy definitely agrees with the bootylicious starlet as she proudly showed off her bump in a stunning orange gown. Congrats B!



And last but definitely not least - Nicki Minaj raised the roof in typically dramatic fashion – looking like she jumped straight from the pages of a Japanese Manga cartoon as she channeled Harajuku Barbie! This femcee is definitely ready to give Lady Gaga a run for her money in the OMG fashion stakes!
