New York was the place to be last night as the stars attended the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall! Russell Brand was asked back to host the awards for the second year in a row, and looked comfy in a cardigan as he posed for cameras before the show. A few of the ladies looked stunning in shimmering shades of silver and gold last night, including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Leighton Meester, Jennifer Lopez and Kristin Cavallari. Alexa Chung looked gorgeous in her mini dress, while Beyonce Knowles wowed in bright red. NY Fashion Week is going on in the city at the moment, and Shakira and Pink had the ultimate fashion faux pas when they both showed up in the same dress. Eek! Twilight's Taylor Lautner, Adam Brody and Chace Crawford looked handsome in their classic suits, while Russell's buddy Diddy looked sharp in his, accompanied by two ladies!
