The 2020 VMA awards were held on August 30th, 2020, and although the fashion was amazing, we have to say that seeing an event safely held in the midst of COVID-19 was the hint of normalcy that we needed and loved to see. And of course, the fashion was beyond spectacular, so we had to list out all of our favorite looks and give credit to the extremely talented designers that created them. Despite all that 2020 has thrown our way, everyone that showed up to the VMA’s with a smile on their face and their best foot forward emulated persistency and positivity, giving us all something to look up to.
Bella Hadid’s mesh bodysuit is made by Nensi Dojaka and is paired with hoop earrings, heeled sandals, and black trousers.
Doja Kat’s red dress with fringe and red flower appliqués was designed by Versace.
Machine Gun Kelly shows us that we are far beyond the days of associating hot pink with just girls and that men can enjoy this vibrant color as well. We love the entire three-piece suit look designed from Berluti. It was paired with a gold pearl necklace and black pointed-toe flats that make this outfit perfection.
Joey King’s gold chain necklaces are representative of the chain trend that’s making an impact this fall. Her Versace floral dress is paired with shiny red pumps.
Smith’s colorful jacket dips into the cardigan trend that is currently appearing in the fashion world, paired with fun sneakers and light wash jeans that are reminiscent of the ’90s. Maybe the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air inspired this outfit??
Taking inspiration from the VMA’s astronaut figure, Lady Gaga wears a silver Area jacket, paired black boots by Pleasers, and a helmet by Muscarella. Bonus points because of the helmet that doubles as a mask!
Maluma’s double-breasted suit designed by Versace is the perfect combination of fun and sophisticated elegance.
Sofia Carson’s red Giambatista Valli Haute Couture gown emulated the timeless red carpet style and was paired with Jimmy Choo heels and Vhernier jewelry.
Nicole Richie’s green dress perfectly displays one of the most on-trend colors for Fall 2020, celery green, and pairs nicely with her vibrant heels.
