The MTV Video Music Awards are an odd event. Every year the network takes a few hours to honor the lost art form. (Remember music videos? They were those three-minute video clips set to hot singles that MTV used to air before shows like "Teen Mom" and "Catfish" came along.) Thankfully, the annual award show also serves as a platform for exciting live performances (yay, 'N Sync reunion!) and loads of dramatic red carpet dresses and scandalous on-stage attire. Legendary faves include Lil Kim's lone pastie and Lady Gaga's meat dress. From twerking teddy bears to completely transparent gowns, this year's award show did not disappoint. Here are the most outrageous looks of the evening. By Joanna Douglas, Yahoo! Shine Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor
