Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus each took a strength-in-numbers approach to their VMA red-carpet arrivals. Swift showed up to the big night as one 10th of a sizable posse, rounded out the dream team of female co-stars featured in her "Bad Blood" video. The evening's host, Cyrus, hit the scene with her family — including patriarch Billy Ray, who vowed to live-Tweet the event — clad in a revealing silver-suspenders get-up. The dudes — such as Miguel, John Legend, Pharrell and Nick Jonas — put in more subdued appearances. Click through our gallery to relive all the glitz and the glamour.
