It’s not hard to find superheroine looks at the cray-cray world of the MTV Video Music Awards (or any Awards awarded by MTV or almost any music awards — there’s just something about music that translates to more cotumey looks…and there is nothing bad about that!). It’s mostly hard to narrow down the cray-cray into authentic heroine chic. Miley Cyrus absolutely looked like a comic book character last night but she didn’t read heroine chic at all.

But the single sleeve was also a trend:
Right? I mean, she does actually have competition in Audrina Patridge:
There’s a lot of chatter about why there still are Video Music Awards on MTV since MTV never shows music videos anymore. Well, that may be, but the videos are still being made!
