We almost didn't recognise Captain Sassypants with that new 'do.
The boys won Most Shareworthy Video, Best Pop Video and Best New Artist at the ceremony, and managed to look ovary-explodingly HOT as they did so. Obviously.
The theme for the evening appears to have been 'blue' - with each member of the band sporting a touch of the same colour, whether it be Niall's fetching trousers or Harry's little brooch thing. (No, that's probably not the technical term)
We'll give you a minute to finish drooling, but there is something very important we'd like to discuss, in relation to a certain Mr. Tomlinson.
Yes, THE HAIR. We're used to seeing Luigi rocking a sassy fringe, so this new slicked back look is quite a change - but we have to say, we're loving it.
Not only does Louis look oh-so-dapper, but we're also enjoying the unrestricted view this new 'do gives us of his face.
What do you think? Have you recovered enough to answer us yet?
Missed the ceremony? DON'T WORRY the whole thing will be shown in the UK on MTV at 9pm tonight. Hooray!
