Designer outfits shined as celebrities and singers walked the red carpet, live in Hollywood, Sunday, Sept. 7, for the 2008 VMA Awards.

Glamor and style mixed with exciting appearances and famous mom’s-to-be as people gathered to watch the return of Britney Spears.

Host Russell Brand gave the crowd something to laugh about with his unusual style and British accent.

Performances by Rihanna, T.I., Christina Aguilera and Leona Lewis, to name a few, sent fans screaming for more.

Spears made a debut as the biggest hit, as she showed off her new fit body in a beautiful Versace dress.

Spears who received a standing ovation opening the award ceremony, walked home with three moon men-best female video, best pop video and video of the year.

Other winners of the VMAs include Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Pussycat Dolls, Linkin Park, Kanye West, Toyio Hotel, Knarles Barkley, The White Stripes, Erykah Badu and Death Cab for Cutie.

New mom Christina Aguilera wore a long white and black dress, along with mom-to-be Ashlee Simpson-Wentz who wore a long, flowing black dress.

Other celebrities like Katy Perry made quite a splash as she showed up with a vintage inspired outfit made by herself. Miley Cyrus wore a short black dress, Pink with a long black and red strapless dress and Ciara wearing a short silver dress with a thick black belt.

All in all, the 2008 VMA Awards was a success. Fashion divas showed off their latest trends, baby bumps and of course thousands of dollars worth of bling-bling.

With after-parties and photos being taken, celebrities partied it up all night.
