The MTV VMAs Red Carpet Was the Fashion Fix We've All Been Missing
The 2020 MTV VMAs, hosted by Keke Palmer, shaped up to be quite an impressive show filled with performances and acceptance speeches — though the show wasn't actually live. There was a very specific plan set in place to make the evening's event appear to be so seamless, and part of that included the red carpet. A lot of planning went into the outfits too, with celebs showing up in everything from little Mugler mini-dresses to extraordinary, avant-garde Area looks. (Lady Gaga's look didn't quite beat out her famous meat dress for attention, but it was capped off with her signature sky-high, towering platform shoes.)
We got the rundown on Joey King's outfit from her stylist, too, which was an instant win for her as soon as she tried it on. Also in attendance? Jaden Smith in the coolest-ever iteration of his vegan leather New Balance sneakers and Bebe Rexha, who brought attention to Black-owned fashion label Lionne Clothing in her vixen style, form fitting blazer. Scroll down to check out details on everyone's look, because we know you'll appreciate the variety of exciting fashion influences here, and then be sure to read up on how stylists have been working with their clients to bring looks like this alive during COVID-19.
