Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards were a big night for our favorite Jersey Shore stars. We loved Sammi’s dress, and even though Snooki had a bit of a panty fail, she still looked fab. And as for the boys? We were big fans of Vinny Guadagnino’s VMA dates. So who’d he take?

His parents! Vinny and his folks looked awesome as they posed together on the red carpet. And we love mom Paola’s dress. We can’t wait to see more of her on The Show with Vinny!

Vinny also stopped to take photos with fans on his way into the awards at Barclay’s Center. How sweet!

We love that Vinny’s returning to his normal, lovable self. He had us worried after those crazy Instavideos he’s been posting, but lately we’ve gotten a glimpse of the old Vinny we know and love!

What do you think of Vinny’s VMA dates? Let us know below!
