The MTV Awards have been known to disappoint. Over the years we’ve had a Britney and Madonna kiss, Kanye West’s famous Taylor Swift diss, and too many out-of-this-world Lady Gaga appearances to list individually…
I’m happy to report that the 2011 European Music Awards were certainly no exception. Hosted by teen queen Selena Gomez, the star power from Belfast’s Odyssey Arena was certainly up to par with previous years – maybe even bigger.
With thanks in part to Selena’s beau, Justin Beiber, who wowed the crowd with an impressive onstage performance (and several wins), as well as Gaga proving that she is indeed from another planet and Katy Perry’s mesmerising nod to Frenchie from Grease.
Check out the pics to see why the MTV Awards never ever disappoint…
Who do you think is the craziest of them all?
Yes i have to agree Lady Gaga is the queen of crazy, with the crazy outfits, the crazy hair and the crazy personality. Katy Perry looks so different i think it must be her thicker brows.

Earlier this year we gave you ‘Five minutes with Ruby Rose’, where we chatted about her sexuality, her strangest tattoo, and of course, her beauty secrets.
Now we’re back with another five minutes with Ruby - only this time she’s answering all the questions YOU asked her. So sit back, relax and get ready to learn a bit more about one of the newest faces of Maybelline New York, the lovely Ruby Rose…
Q: “How do you keep your skin looking so flawless and gorgeous?” – MissChriss
A: I have stopped drinking, don't smoke, have an addiction to bikram [yoga] and coconut water, and keep my skin out of the sun. I believe that although a good moisturiser and cleanser are great, it's what you put inside your body that shows on the outside.
Q: “What make-up brands/products do you favour?” – Shull87
A: Well…obviously Maybelline New York!!!! Haha what else is there? Skin-wise I mix up my toners, moisturisers and skin products because I feel like after three to six weeks my skin needs a change. I love Falsies Mascara, and Baby Lips by Maybelline – that's all I use when flying. I'm low maintenance!
Q: “What is your favourite long-lasting lippy? You can really rock a bold red lip!” – Nda
A: On the last few shoots I’ve done for Maybelline, they’ve used their Superstay 24hr lippie or Color Sensational, which is more of your classic lipstick. I think the shade they used on me last time was Superstay 24hr in Keep Up The Flame. It is such a hot colour that I may have taken it with me afterwards!
Q: “What’s your style inspiration, both as a designer and in every day life?” – MissChriss
A: Ummmmm...I guess just expression, art, and energy. I vibe my energy and go by that. I use fashion to kind of express my inside emotions. Music is a big part of my life and I often draw influence from songs too.
Q: “In a past interview you have said that you were bullied at school. I would love to know how you re-built your confidence after that?” – Jenniqua
A: It's a self-discovering process really – a tough and long process but one that builds a strong foundation for you later in life. It's a sink or swim scenario and I worked hard to swim. You just have to be kind to yourself.
Q: “How do you maintain that banging body of yours? And as you’re a vegetarian, I’d love to know if you have some veggie cooking tips!” – Spunkx
A: Wow!!! I really want to Google recipes right now. The inner perfectionist is telling me to Google some rad stuff, but the inner honest kiddo is like, 'just admit it. You can't cook.' I love raw food though and now you have pointed it out maybe that's actually because I don't have to cook it. I eat lots of greens…greens with garlic and chilli!
Q: “How does it feel to be one of the faces of Maybelline New York? In what way do you feel that you’re a good representation of the brand?” – bh’sDeb
A: It feels amazing. Surreal almost, I mean I remember watching the ads growing up. I never thought I'd be one of the girls! I feel like they chose me because I'm unique and they have often gone for unique, strong women. So I think it’s really a big compliment. I hope I am a good ambassador for people who enjoy the brand but show people to embrace what they have.
Which Aussie female celeb do you most admire?
What great questions beauties. Congratulations to all who were involved. Well done.

It seems I’ve been two-toned for so long now that I seem to have forgotten what it’s like to a enjoy beautiful, rich, one-tonal hair colour. My balayage is one of the things I’m best known for, but recently I’ve started noticing how beautiful my friends’ hair is when they have just a single, rich block colour. Take my friend Lydia for example, who is currently sporting the scrummiest of Cadbury-esque browns that I’ve ever come across. Seriously, I tend to drool when I’m around her and her amazing mop.
In addition to that, her hair looks really, really, healthy. And though I love my blonde ends like I love my favourite red lippy, I must admit that sometimes they don’t look all that well kept.
So the question plagued me, is it time to trade in my two-tone look and opt for a more singular look for my strands?
Rather than make up my own mind, I thought I’d take it to the people I really trust – the beautyheaven beauties! You always know what you’re talking about, and your advice has never failed me in the past (I hope that’s true in reverse too!) so who better to ask?
So beauties, what do you think… is it time to bring back the block hue and finally say bye-bye to the balayage?

Oh Liv I love your balayage! It would be hard to say goodbye to that but I in saying that I could see you with dark chocolate locks with a dreamy soft curl going on. I just recently went from chocolate to black and I love it - a change is as good as a holliday they say! And I have a donut coming too so I am uber excited! Boom! Haha!

I think that your hair looks beautiful with the balayage, but I tend to agree with you about blocks looking more healthy. I reckon that you give the block a go and if you dont like it(I couldnt see why you wouldnt like it though) you could always go back to the balayage. Please give us a photo if you do go block.

With more and more vintage clothing stores at our fingertips, it seems apparent that what once was old, is new again – and that what my grandmother said about everything coming back into fashion at some point was actually right on the money.
And as the number of my friends’ little sisters choosing High Tea luncheons over drunken parties for their 21st celebrations increases, it dawned on me that times were indeed changing. Luckily for us, there are a myriad of beauty product options out there to cater to changing moods – and changing trends!
For a High Tea soiree fit for a queen, I’d look no further than Crabtree & Evelyn for products that will make your experience that touch more authentic. Not only do a lot of the brand’s products look the part with their pretty floral motifs, but I personally love the Crabtree & Evelyn Carleon Fragrance Diffuser,as it captures the English seaside in a bottle – and what’s more authentic than that at a British-style High Tea?
For a sleepover with that ‘turn-back-time’ theme, think the Pink Ladies in Grease. You know, cute silk nighties, curlers in hair, loads of gossip, and of course you’ll also want some nourishing skin goodies so you can get all nice and pampered, Frenchie-style! Trelivings Lolita Body Lotion and Hand Cream are deeply nourishing, thanks to a scrummy blend of peach kernel oil, cocoa butter and sweet almond oil – plus the packaging is totally like something your gran would have owned in her hey-day!
When you’re just in the mood for a bit of ‘me time’ and want to be supremely pampered, why not take things back to the Elizabethan era by adding Taylor of London Calming Lavender Perfumed Soap to your cleansing routine? The scent of Lavender was used for its calming, soothing benefits way back then, and continues to deliver now.
What has come back into fashion for you?
The "Bun" is the first thing that comes to mind. I never thought that the bun would come back into fashion. Also there are heaps of clothing shops selling vintage clothes which I really like.

maxi skirts have come back in fashion for me, i think it looks very feminine. You can still look girly without showing leg.

We LOVE a curvy celeb – esp. those proud to show off what their mama gave ‘em.
What we don’t love is when they step out in clothes that aren’t exactly the best fit for their bodies – you know, like when their boobs are falling out, they’re sporting serious muffin tops, or their ill-fitting clothes are less than flattering for their figure.
CHECK OUT OUR GALLERY OF CELEBS BELOW – who should do themselves a favour, and find some more, err, fitting clothes…
Check out what else Snooki, Christina Aguilera, and Katie Price have in common?
Or do you wanna smell like Beyonce? No problem!
Liz Hurley and Katie Price!!!!

I'm one of those who believes that there's far more allure in keeping some things hidden, and the guys guessing. It's beyond me why some women go for the "bolt-on-boobs" look - I think it's freaky looking rather.than sexy, but then I'm not a fella :-)
