Celebrities Show Off Their Best Looks on Socially Distanced 2020 MTV VMAs Red Carpet

Lady Gaga gets creative once again, this time with COVID-safe masks.

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the MTV VMAs weren’t canceled this year — New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the annual event would be taking place with strict safety precautions. Although the awards show was missing large audiences, celebrities donned some of their best looks on the socially distanced red carpet.

Hosted by Keke Palmer, the VMAs took place in outdoor venues across the city, with performers including names like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, BTS, Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd and more. Marking one of the biggest events that haven’t been canceled this year, the show was a mix of pre-recorded live performances and real-time red carpet arrivals.

Bella Hadid took the spotlight in a sheer bodysuit with cut-out details, adding to her list of ’90s-inspired looks. Lady Gaga created an iconic fashion moment once again, sporting four futuristic looks with space helmets and face coverings that accurately reflect 2020’s ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “I was wearing face shields before it was a thing,” the star commented as she shared her striking look via Instagram. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus donned a sheer Mugler gown adorned with reflective decorations.

Keke Palmer kicked off the night in a satin mini dress complete with a large ribbon just above the leg slit, while Madison Beer kept her look simple in Mugler’s little black dress with sheer, cut-out details. Joey King arrived in a bold, floral piece by Versace with bold chain necklaces. Bebe Rexha took the cycling shorts trend to the red carpet, styling the versatile item with a black leather jacket and long blue nails.
