The Men: 2009 VMAs Red Carpet

Per usual, most guys were decked out in suits and dress shirts. Except since it’s MTV, there were hardly any ties to be found, with top buttons undone. Of course, there was also lots of leather to be seen.

Jack Black really took it to the next level, with his fake giant arm muscles and giant battle axe. Joe Jackson had the nerve to show up to the event, most likely taking the opportunity to promote his record label. He’s a real class act, that one.

And as always, Sean Combs was probably the most impeccably dressed guy there, accessorizing with one lady on each side.
