One Direction looked red hot on the red carpet for tonight’s MTV VMA Awards. This fact doesn’t come as a surprise to fans, but it’s our duty to show these Brits at their sexiest.

The five boys from across the pond coordinated their outfits, wearing black and grey with red accents. While some of them dressed up more than others — with Harry wearing a full suit and Louis wearing a jacket and pocket square — for the first-time nominees, it was all about the hair.

Surprisingly, the whole band gelled their hair up high, some flashing serious looks while Liam and Niall grinned for the cameras.

Throughout the entire pre-show, One Direction was trending, reaching more than 35K tweets throughout the hour! And to kick off the show, they won their first ever VMA: Best Pop Video for “What Makes You Beautiful.” We’ll have to wait and see if they win Best New Artist, too!

Tell us what you think of the band’s VMA style, and then gear up for their performance later tonight!
