The MTV Video Music Awards red carpet kicked off from the Barclays Center in New York, and stars immediately upped the ante when it came to fashion. After all, as events slowly start to pick up and stylists are able to hook up their clients with pieces straight off the runway, there’s no better time for an award show. We saw major glamour from the likes of Billy Porter, Chloe x Halle, Simone Biles, Tinashe, and Kacey Musgraves, all of whom have impressed with their outfits over the summer. Later, outfit changes from performers including Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Kacey Musgraves, and Normani continued to bring the heat. One thing’s for sure: we’ve never been so moved by such incredible, upbeat fashion. Scroll through to see every arrival from the night’s event you might have missed.
