IT IS hardly an event known for stylish fash­ion, but the VMAs hit a new low yesterday.

All day Con­fi­den­tial was on the hunt for some­one to brand “best dressed”, but we came up short.

Only Pitch Per­fect 2 star Hailee Ste­in­feld rocked up in any­thing that could re­motely pass as stylish.

Tay­lor Swift may have walked away with an arm­ful of awards, but even the su­per­star’s Ashish out­fit was be­low her usual stylish stan­dards.

Mi­ley Cyrus tried to shock in what could only be de­scribed as be­jew­elled Ver­sace over­alls – sans un­der­wear or shirt – but it only made us yawn and yearn for the good old days.

With no Bey­once, Katy Perry, Ri­hanna, or even Lady Gaga to keep us en­ter­tained, what we were left with con­sisted of lit­tle more than Swifty’s posse and a gag­gle of Kar­dashian/ Jen­ners.

Thank good­ness Rebel Wil­son was there fly­ing the flag for Aus­tralia, though her dip-dyed hair wasn’t the best look she has ever rocked on a red car­pet.

But af­ter be­ing blinded by the cleav­age on dis­play from Nicki Mi­naj and Brit­ney Spears, we were just happy to see some­one was at least at­tempt­ing to show some mod­esty.

Hailee Ste­in­feld

SB: Sleek and el­e­gant are two words not nor­mally as­so­ci­ated with the Video Mu­sic Awards. I would have ditched the shiny dog col­lar, but other than that, this was a rare stand­out.

KC: I re­ally like this. It’s cool, fresh and clean. Slightly age­ing, but she looked classy.

Vanessa Hud­gens

SB: Poor love has spent so much time at Coachella, she thinks she’s there per­ma­nently. Gor­geous hair and make-up save this from be­ing Nanna’s cur­tains.

KC: I find it just a bit messy. It’s pretty, but this is more By­ron Bay hip­pie wed­ding than red car­pet.

Mi­ley Cyrus

SB: Once, this would have been shock­ing, but we’ve seen far too much of Mi­ley for it to raise an eye­brow.

KC: This is like one of the Von Trapp chil­dren be­came an ex­otic dancer. That chan­de­lier on her crotch takes va­jaz­zling to a whole new level.

Kylie Jen­ner

SB: Kylie’s morph into Kim is al­most com­plete with this look. Em­bel­lished, fig­ure­hug­ging dress: check. All she needs is a rap­per boyfriend – oh wait, she has that too.

KC: Talk about an ugly duck­ling trans­for­ma­tion. Her plas­tic sur­geon must be one of the busiest in Hol­ly­wood.

Kim and Kanye

SB: I’m all for any preg­nant lady rock­ing out in what­ever she wants, but slinky khaki is never a good look. Kanye’s “I’m so cool I don’t care” schtick is get­ting tired.

KC: No mat­ter what these two wore, it would be over­shad­owed by their enor­mous egos.

Justin Bieber

SB: And we thought Don­ald Trump had the world’s most talked about ter­ri­ble hair? I can’t get over this Green Day wannabe look.

KC: Bieber looks like he is pre­par­ing to play Ellen DeGeneres in a telemovie about her life. I just don’t get what he is go­ing for here.

Brit­ney Spears

SB: Why so shocked Brit? That you squeezed into that frock, or that you still get in­vited to these things?

KC: Oh baby, baby, this is bad. It doesn’t fit. By show­ing this much skin, maybe she was hop­ing to dis­tract from the fact that she hasn’t had a hit in 100 years.
