A lot of entertainers made the trek to Berlin - Beyonce, Shakira, Lil Kim, Juliette Lewis, Katy Perry and, obviously, the Hoff - because, apparently, you can wear the most ludicrous of getups and no one cares.
Beyonce Knowles, the ultimate modernist bombshell, in classic form.
The Hoff - in one place where he's always appreciated.
Juliette Lewis is intent on making everyone remember, at every turn, that she is not a rocker. Apparently she does put on a killer show!
Leona Lewis' getup makes me ponder the wide range of human tastes and likes.
Doda's outfit might be called "representational." "Literal," even.
But eh voila! The bomb contracts into a...large, random black circle.
Luckily for Lil Kim, there is a great deal to be said for consistency in this unpredictable world.
Is the, um, border of Shakira's arm-hole intended to evoke an Edenic serpent? Can she sit down in that dress? Or walk in those shoes? So many questions!
Now that she's 25, Katy Perry is an elegant grown-up lady. Or at least a Gibson Girl.
Asia Argento models the latest in Flintstones chic.
Elena Paparizou, meanwhile, models last year's iteration.
Not sure why Miranda Cosgrove needed to come to Berlin, but I guess Nickelodeon likes to represent. As do harlequins. And she's doing them both proud!
Shadow-tie-dye and high boots? If anyone can work it, it's a tall drink of water like Joss Stone.
