The MTV Video Music Awards aren't exactly a traditional awards ceremony, so it shouldn't be a surprise that when it came to Sunday night's white carpet, plenty of celebrities had some extra fun playing up to photogs.
That was especially true for the duos who attended the show in New York City, whether they were romantic couples or just good pals.
1. Beyoncé and Blue Ivy
Nothing's sweeter than a mother-daughter date, especially when that duo is Queen Bey and her adorable offspring. Little Blue, 4, nearly stole the spotlight from her famous mom, sweetly holding on to Beyoncé's hand while rocking a nearly $11,000 Mishcka Aoki gown, complete with gold tulle fit for a princess.
Plus, let's not forget that it was at this very awards show five years ago that the "Freedom" singer announced she was pregnant with her first child by revealing her baby bump on stage following her performance. It all comes back around!
2. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill
The rappers turned the VMAs into their very own prom photo shoot! The two couldn't keep their hands off each other, with Mill sweetly wrapping his arms around Minaj, who looked not just stunning but madly in love with her beau.
3. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Before gracing us with an epic (more than) four-minute speech and that very NSFW "Fade" music video, West took to the white carpet with his wife, where the two posed in a stance that has become so familiar, we nearly thought it was a wax figure version of the loved-up couple.
4. Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo
We know most soon-to-be parents are excited to welcome a first child, but the Catfish star and his fiancée really took the love over-the-top! Perlongo dared to bare her baby bump, going shirtless under an olive green bomber jacket. Both a bodychain and Schulman got up-close-and-personal with her burgeoning belly. As surprised as we were by the daring ensemble, it was pretty adorable to see such a crazy in love couple.
5. Jennelle Evans and David Eason
It was baby bump overload at the VMAs! Just days after officially announcing she was pregnant with kiddo No. 3 -- a baby girl who will be named Ensley -- the Teen Mom 2 star debuted her belly on the white carpet, where she and her fiancé couldn't help but share a sweet smooch for the cameras.
6. Ashley Graham and Justin Ervin
7. Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson
Fresh off his historic final Olympics run, the gold medal winner and his fiancée cuddled close together at the VMAs, where Phelps introduced Future's performance. Sadly for us, they left baby Boomer at home.
8. Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
Sure, these two aren't in a relationship, but they have been BFFs ever since their Jersey Shore days, and we adore their outspoken ways and deep-rooted friendship. The reality stars held hands while walking the carpet, where Farley opted for a revealing, sheer dress with plenty of cut-outs, while Polizzi channeled old school glamour in a sparkly silver sleeveless gown. Sorry, Roger and Jionni -- these two are ours for keeps!
9. Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys
Could these two be any cuter? The "Girl on Fire" singer knows she's one lucky lady, sweetly tweeting about their VMA evening. "Night out with my #1," she wrote, adding winky face and heart-eye emojis.
