This year's Video Music Awards marked the first major red carpet event since the Covid-19 pandemic
This year's MTV Video Music Awards was a ceremony with a difference. The first major awards ceremony to take place in America since the Covid-19 pandemic, it saw performances take place in audience-less arenas across the city, with celebrities walking a reimagined red carpet - with digitally enhanced backgrounds and social distancing as standard. Stars such as Ariana Grande - who performed hit collaboration 'Rain on Me' with Lady Gaga - took to social media to thank the event's organisers for being "so diligent in making this such a safe and healthy experience for all of the performers and crew involved".
Lady Gaga was the big winner of the night, taking home multiple gongs and performing numerous outfit changes (we counted eight in total - plus eight different masks or face shields), while stars such as Bella Hadid, Miley Cyrus and Madison Beer embraced getting dressed up again and brought back that naked dressing trend so synonymous with music event red carpets.
