MTV EMA 2013 best dressed: Katy Perry, Redfoo, Bridgit Mendler and more

mtv-ema-2013-best-dressed-katy-perry-gi.jpgThe red carpet at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards was filled with flashy, tacky attire -- with just a few exceptions.

Katy Perry descended upon Amsterdam and the Ziggo Dome to perform her latest "Prism" single, "Unconditionally." But not before classing up the red carpet with a demure Zac Posen aqua-colored 60s inspired frock. She set it off with a Dolce & Gabbana headband and understated nude peep-toe pumps. 

Katy's look is a complete 180 from Miley Cyrus' bawdy gangsta rap "dress" and trashy thigh-high boots. 

Also gaining a stamp of approval is the night's host, Redfoo, who wore exactly what you would expect LMFAO's No. 1 party rocker to wear. 

"Good Luck Charlie" star and EMA Artist on the Rise nominee, Bridgit Mendler, kept it simple and pretty in a black floor-length gown with a peek-a-boo cutout, and an easy, swept back updo.

Dutch singer-songwriter and LMFAO collaborator Eva Simons strayed about as far as one can get from "simple," but she rocked it out in a bizarre pants-meets-afghan blanket wrap over the top of a cutout-laden onesie. And the over-the-top mohawk seals the deal. Because "faux hawks" are so over.
