Scroll through these 2012 MTV Video Music Award red carpet pictures and relive all of the pre-show action! Soak in all of the fashion hits and misses from artists like One Direction, Rihanna, Rita Ora, the Wanted, Pink and many more as they strutted their stuff on the MTV VMA red carpet before the big show.

There were many new hairdos on the red carpet, including cuts from the guys of 1D and the gorgeous Rihanna. Louis Tomlinson was sporting a shorter, more polished haircut, but we’re not sure we’re totally digging it. Niall Horan, on the other hand, looks adorable with that spiky two-toned hairdo! Rihanna also killed it with a cropped pixie ‘do — it’s very Mia Farrow and totally works for Ms. Ri.

There weren’t many too many fashion offenses on the MTV VMA red carpet, as these pictures evidenced — save for Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, who both looked a hot mess for very different reasons — with ladies like Pink and RiRi keeping it glam while Rita Ora got funky in a cool jumpsuit. The Wanted looked dapper as ever in their slick suits, and the members of 1D all showed off their individual personalities in coordinated wardrobes.

Finally, the biggest red carpet news of the night came from Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, who announced they’re expecting their first baby! Congratulations to the happy couple!
