Back in action! While awards seasons had a bit of a hiatus over the summer, the red carpet was rolled out once again for the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards — and the stars brought out all the style stops.
The annual awards show, which took place on Sunday, September 12, brought well-dressed and fashion forward celebs from far and wide to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
From the second performers, nominees and lucky guests stepped on the scene, it became pretty clear that everyone came prepared to drop some jaws, take new trends for a spin and, above all else, wow the crowds.
To see all of these looks, watch the video above and keep scrolling to get the breakdown on each of the gorgeous ensembles!
