Best Dressed: Kanye West
Even with his rousing performance of "Otis" (alongside Jay-Z) making for one of the evening's better performances, it was a fairly tame VMA year for Kanye West. He managed to appear humble, even charming, during his acceptance speech for "E.T.," letting its star Katy Perry do the majority of the talking. His attire was similarly low-key: he wore chambray Balmain in a head-to-toe denim look, a.k.a. the "Canadian Tuxedo." He won't break any records for that look, but it still was pulled off with panache.
