The first real award show red carpet during the Coronavirus pandemic is currently kicking off in New York City with this year’s MTV VMAs underway.
In various outdoor spots around the city, celebrities are arriving in a new pandemic-friendly format which is seeing glamour from different locations instead of one traditional red carpet, with some even shot ahead of time with pre-recorded segments.
As always, VMAs fashion is unapologetically bold, brash and brazen with searing block color the standout trend of the evening. Even the boys took to punchy pigment, with Machine Gun Kelly in a shocking pink pantsuit with knitted sleeveless vest and string of pearls (taking a leaf out of the book of Harry Styles perhaps?). Other highlights include Miley Cyrus’s barely-there embellished sheath and opera gloves and Lady Gaga’s Covid-approved bubble helmet.
A VMAs like never before, ain’t no pandemic going to rain on MTV’s fashion parade. Here’s a look at some of the biggest, boldest fashion moments from one of music’s biggest nights – masks and all.
