The red carpet MTV Video Music Awards always features some of the craziest looks and is definitely different from other events, but the 2020 award show was unlike any other.
To limit crowds because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 37th annual MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30 was recorded remotely with performances being either pre-taped or staged at different locations throughout New York City. Even so, celebrities still showed up with wild costumes and gorgeous jewelry, from chokers to tiaras, that we couldn’t stop talking about.
Normally, hundreds of celebrities walk the red carpet in well-known fashion labels and expensive jewelry. But this year, since some of the award show was pre-recorded, without a celebrity-filled audience, only a handful of celebrities who were actually in attendance for the ceremony. That included those who performed, like Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, and Ariana Grande, presenters such as Joey King, and host Keke Palmer.
