Heavy metal reigned at the MTV Video Music Awards last night, as a bevy of beauties hit the black carpet in stunning metallic gowns.

Demi Lovato shimmered in Mandalay’s metallic silver jewel-encrusted dress, paired with equally shiny shoes. Newlywed Kim Kardashian took a little sparkle away from her engagement ring in a plunging v-neck KaufmanFranco gown, which featured a sexy, cutout back. Victoria Justice continued the trend, sporting a one-of-a-kind metallic leather and metal fringe cocktail dress by Theia. And Vanessa Hudgens shimmied into an after-party wearing a floor-length silver gown highlighted by a necklace, two cuffs and a cocktail ring from Jewelry by Nola.

Selena Gomez also brought some shine to the stage, wearing a charcoal beaded high-neck mod dress by Jenny Packham while presenting with Taylor Lautner, and Jersey Shore‘s Jenni “J-Woww” Farley cleaned up in a glimmering, three-quarter-sleeved mini. Talk about shine control! Tell us: What do you think of the metallic trend?
