There were no meat dresses, or purple pasties at the official unveiling of Miley Cyrus’ new haircut… I mean, the 2012 Video Music Awards, but the PopStyle team did see a few memorable looks. From Nicki Minaj’s arresting ensemble to Frank Ocean’s simple chic, we count down the night’s biggest style moments.

5. Miley’s New ‘Do

The question isn’t ‘What do you think about Miley’s new haircut?’ it’s ‘What does Pink think about Miley’s new haircut?’ And we’d love to hear the answer.

NEXT: Chris Brown

4. Chris Brown’s New Look

Peroxide blonde and blue hair, neck tattoos, sunglasses, was Chris Brown channeling Dennis Rodman from the shoulders up? We liked the shiny suit and skinny tie, but we just weren’t feeling what Brown had going on up top.

NEXT: Nicki Minaj

3. Nicki Minaj’s Light-Up Lingerie

According to Minaj, this black mesh bodysuit — complete with working Christmas lights — is Versace. Sure it was tame compared to last year’s everything-but-the-Harajuku-girl outfit, but still…

2. Emma Watson and Ezra Miller

It’s hard to tell whether we just don’t like Watson’s Peter Pilotto dress or if her Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star Ezra Miller’s bizarre outfit took them both down. We’re usually big fans of Watson’s style, so we’re hoping Miller’s bad influence was a one time only thing.

NEXT: Frank Ocean

1. Frank Ocean’s Headband

Not only was Ocean’s stripped down performance of “Thinkin Bout You” one of the most refreshing moments of the night, so was his simple outfit. In an elegant black jacket — with cool toggle buttons — his trusty rising sun bandana and bare feet, Ocean proved that not everyone needs to hype.
