Pre-show performer Ariana Grande kept things playful on the 2013 MTV VMA red carpet. The 'Baby I' singer showed some serious leg in a short, floral frock perfect for the occasion.

Ariana's glowing makeup and loose hair accentuated her natural beauty.

She even kicked up one very high heel while posing. Work it, girl.
