This is what all the celebs wore to the VMAs in 2003

Warning – jeans feature prominently.

2003 WAS A monumental year for pop-culture.

Finding Nemo was due for release, Mickey Joe Hart represented us at Eurovision and BRITNEY AND MADONNA KISSED EACH OTHER AT THE VMAS.

Despite the uproar at the time, the world didn’t implode and MTV’s most famous award ceremony continues to be held every year.

The style was the focal point of conversation for many this year.

Hilary Duff wore a bejewelled cuff and a tank top.

Nice and understated, you know yourself.
