She has become quite the style chameleon recently and for tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus mixed up her look yet again.

The star looked like she had come a long way since her Disney days as she transformed into a Goth girl for the evening.

The 19-year-old took the plunge in a black gown with a very low-cut neckline which displayed a lot of cleavage.

The dress had strategically placed mesh panels with matching sleeves and a train which flowed behind Miley as she walked the red carpet.

Miley is 5ft 5in but came up with a novel way to give herself a boost of an extra few inches.

The Hannah Montana star styled her new peroxide pixie cut into a retro quiff.

Pink and Alicia Keys each wore silver gowns with sexy side-splits.

And Alicia decided the best way to show off her outfit was to strike an Angelina Jolie-inspired pose and stuck her leg out.

Zoe Saldana, Ke$ha and Emma Watson – who arrived with Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star Ezra Miller – all opted to show off their pins the conventional way, in mini dresses.

Why are all these girls buzzing all of their hair off?! 8/10 end up looking so masculine. Also, whats with Amber Rose pulling a Michael Jackson? And I never realized it as physically possible to have no hips until I saw Gabby Douglas...who invited the Olympics girls anyways?...their 15 minutes is up! Red arrow is this way -------->

Miley looks amazing with that edgy haircut! Taylor Swift is an idiot though.

Some of those people look absolutely horrid! And those gymnasts, though looking very pretty, also look like they feel pretty awkward and uncomfortable.

Taylor Swift and Rihanna- best dressed of the night! Miley Cyrus - Horrific.

Whoever styled Gabby Douglas is an idiot. She doesn't have curves, so do not put her in a skin tight dress! It makes her look manly and terrible! She need a dress with a skirt that goes outwards, to create the impression of a curvier figure.

With so much of make-up on, half of them are looking like wax statues! Exception being AMBER ROSE: She went beyond and above .... she is looking like a dead body! :D

Rihanna's short crop really suits her; Katy Perry looks stunning; Pink - rocking the hair, Miley - not so much (that cut down and parted seems a nicer way for her to sport it)
