Let’s be honest, 2020 wasn’t the best year for fashion. As most of us spent the year home in sweatpants, celebrities were stuck in the same boat with the cancellation of premieres and awards shows due to the unexpected arrival of COVID-19.
Although glamorous opportunities were few and far between, there were a fair number of red carpets that made it into the 2020 books. Those from earlier in the year before the pandemic hit and some socially distanced events in the last few months.
