MTV VMAs Red Carpet Gallery 2010
Lady Gaga is literally a work of art, in her Elizabethan-inspired Alexander McQueen gown and gold feather crown. She knows she's the queen of the VMAs -- the gold feather crown and her entourage of military escorts proves it.

Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Will.i.am and Katy Perry were just a few of the music luminaries who lit up the VMAs' arrivals area, but don't call it a red carpet. At this year's Video Music Awards, it was a cool white carpet that hosted a technicolor Minaj/Will.i.am collab, Justin Bieber and Usher in maching shades, Gaga and her entourage of gay soldiers and more. Check out all of the action in the gallery below.
