Last night marked the 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards, and if you weren’t tuned in to the latest hurricane coverage, preseason football or an especially emotional Extreme Home Makeover (we had to keep switching in between commercial breaks), you might have missed it. Never fear, we’ve got your bite-sized recap right here—from the night’s biggest winners to the best dressed and more.
The Biggest Winners
Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Adele were the night’s biggest winners. In addition to Video of the Year (for “Firework”), Perry shared two awards with Kanye West for their “E.T.” collaboration. Gaga’s “Born This Way” earned the eclectic performer Best Female Video and Best Video with a Message, while Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” racked up a trio of tech-y and dance awards.
The Best Dressed
Two words: Selena Gomez. The 19-year-old Disney star stepped things up with a breathtaking Julien MacDonald gown that brought it all—black lace, filigreed frills and a hip-hugging, full-length train. At an event known for being flashy, Gomez brought a classic elegance more befitting an Oscar or Grammy appearance. Way to keep it classy!
The Big News
If you haven’t heard already, yes, Beyoncé is expecting. The “Run the World (Girls)” singer showed off her baby bump on the red carpet with hubby Jay-Z and during her live performance of “Love on Top,” where she dazzled (literally) in a purple sequined tuxedo.
