M Recap: 2012 Video Music Awards!


Hey M Girls,

Last night was one of the biggest nights of the year in entertainment -- the Video Music Awards! If you were following our tweets, you know we were having the time of our lives! M was right there for all of the action -- from the fab fashions to the amazing performances.

The biggest stars of the night were without a doubt the cuties from One Direction! Not only did the guys look totally suave (hello, Louis' new hair!) but they snagged three awards and gave a rockin' performance of "One Thing". Yep, one thing's for sure...these guys are getting bigger and bigger every day!

Other big winners included Rihanna for her "We Found Love" video, Demi Lovato and Katy Perry. For a full list, scroll down!

Unfortch, some of our faves like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Carly Rae Jepsen didn't take home any awards. Still, Justin showed that he was in good spirits by tweeting: #goodguysalwayswin. We're still so proud of all of you!

We also loved seeing the Fierce Five gymnasts present Alicia Keys' performance -- especially when Gabby Douglas came out and did some gymnastics! And it was super-sweet to see Katy Perry and Rihanna's close BFF relaysh while watching them sit together the whole night.. aww!

And of course, we were obsessed with the brand new clip from Breaking Dawn -- Part 2. The cast introduced the clip and we can't wait for November 16!

Here are some of our other vid highlights of the night:
