The VMAs have always been a night for creating major style moments — but apparently it’s now also a night for paying homage to some of the most iconic outfits from years past. Amber Rose nodded to Rose McGowan with her barely-there “dress,” and then Katy Perry took it up a notch by paying homage to one of the most iconic couples outfits of all time: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake‘s double-denim ensembles.

The key difference? While Spears and Timberlake were apparently completely earnest, Perry Tweeted that her outfit was a custom Versace created for her as a result of her “love for nostalgia and … tumblr addiction.” In the Timberlake role for the evening: Rapper Riff-Raff (reportedly the inspiration for James Franco’s Spring Breakers character, and Perry’s right-hand man on the remix of “This Is How We Do”). The denim-clad duo stepped out of a yellow Lamborghini to enthusiastic screams, giving us plenty of time to admire Perry’s attention to detail.

From the patchwork denim pattern to the bedazzled choker, Perry nailed the Spears vibe entirely, while Riff Raff captured Timberlake’s essence with his goofy sunglasses and generally delighted demeanor.

So was the original Princess of Pop flattered? Not only that, she gave Perry props for taking it to the next level, bringing the denim gown out of retirement years later. Spears’s response:

Katy Perry or Cara Delevingne: Who Wore This Pepperoni Pizza Onesie Best (and Other Sentences We Never Thought We'd Type)

There are questions that may never be fully answered in our lifetime, like “Is there intelligent life out there in the universe?” and “Who’s the boss: Angela or Tony?” To that difficult list of questions, we can now add this: “Who wore this pepperoni pizza onesie best: Katy or Cara?”

Katy Perry had the advantage of being an early adopter, first wearing hers to wrestle with her (less than amused) dog and then unzipping the head part to walk out in Philadelphia post-concert. And Perry is a pizza promoter, wearing pizza-adorned accessories and clothing in music videos and reliably Instagramming shots of herself eating the triangular treat in Disney castles. (Seriously.)

But then there’s Cara Delevingne, who has the supermodel advantage, as well as the bonus points she earned for being able to walk around with the face hole entirely zipped. We imagine that this is part of a tactic meant to deter the paparazzi, though we have to say that for our money, we’re more likely to notice the chick in the head-to-toe pizza ensemble with no breathing holes than we are the girl in jeans and a tee leaving the club quietly.

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that Beyoncé did it first. And possibly best. But it’s really up for you to decide in the poll below.

Who wore pizza best?

See the Most Popular Patriotic Dress in Hollywood (Hint: It's Been Worn by Meryl Streep and Wendy Williams)

Jul/04/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Catherine Malandrino’s American flag shirtdress is almost as much of a classic as Old Glory itself. Every year a new star steps out in the design, putting her own twist on the red-white-and-blue number. The frock seems to appeal to all age demographics, can be worn belted and is an easy way to show your patriotic side this Fourth of July. Unfortunately, it’s sold out pretty much everywhere. Since we can’t nab our own, let’s look back at the celebs who have the iconic frock hanging in their closets instead.

Halle Berry was the first to wear the design, choosing a sleeveless version for her Swordfish promo tour in 2001. Meryl Streep hit the carpet for Doubt in 2009 in her stars and stripes, and in 2012, Tatyana Ali wore it to the BET Upfronts.

More recently, Katy Perry and John Mayer coordinated their patriotic looks last Fourth of July (see photo below). And this year, two stars stepped out in the dress: Wendy Williams wore it to film an episode in May, while Miss USA fittingly displayed her patriotic pride while touring her crown back in June.

Whose broad stripes & bright stars?!

Dying to rock the look? You could try this American flag tank dress, or an oversize tee from ASOS. If you want to show a little more skin, check out this crop top and swimsuit, both available at Urban Outfitters. And of course, American Apparel has an extensive red, white and blue collection.

Are you loving the dress? What do you plan to wear this weekend? Will you be donning stars and stripes? Share your thoughts below.

Lily Allen Dyes Her Hair Red, Making Her the Latest to Join the 'Dark Roots, Bright Ends' Club

May/30/2014 at 01:40 PM ET

We like to consider ourselves open-minded when it comes to bold celebrity hair moves. But one of the latest mane trends taking over Hollywood really has us scratching our heads. So we’re bringing it to the table to discuss.

Lily Allen just dyed her hair a flame-red color, but rather than go for a whole hue change, the singer kept her brunette roots and bangs, going scarlet from mid-scalp down. She’s no stranger to the whole two-tone hair trend (just a few weeks ago she was black-and-orange), but it seems like the whole dark-roots-bright-color combo is gaining traction.
