Patriotic looks and retro styles were also big at military tribute.

Stars didn’t shy away from bold fashion choices when it came to supporting soldiers at the “VH1 Divas Salute the Troops” event.
Celebs hit the stage and the red carpet in looks that either paid homage to the military’s legacy or rocked the soldiers’ worlds with eye-popping outfits.

Nicki Minaj piled on the color in an orange-and-blue-hued, long-sleeved mini-dress, turquoise tights and fringe-covered platforms when she rocked the stage. She finished off the look with a puffy trapezoidal white wig with pink tips and a large beaded necklace.
Snooki topped off her snug little black dress with an officer’s cap that she brightened up with a pink bow.
Katy Perry went for ’40s glam in many of looks, like her crimson sequined gown with a sweetheart neckline and daring thigh-high slit. She upped the vamp factor with long red gloves and a diamond cuff. Perry also got patriotic with a tube top emblazoned with the American flag paired with sparkly hot pants.
Keri Hilson, Perry and Jennifer Nettles took it back with their World War II-era style in the show’s opener, swishing about in spangled gold and white mini-dresses and military hats.
Grace Potter went runway-chic with a tiny silvery beaded number adorned with long fringe that showed off her long legs. The Situation got spiffed up his typically casual look with a vest and black button-down shirt with paisley accents, paired with grey jeans and black kicks.
Supermodel Marisa Miller was suitably dressed for the occasion in an olive drab jumpsuit nipped at the waist with a wide belt, a look she softened with a wavy retro hairstyle.
Hilson rocked both the stage and red carpet and an all-black outfit she enlivened with glitzy accents like sparkly lapels, studded jewelry and bedazzled booties.
