The MTV Video Music Awards is back in full swing this 2021, featuring live performances and the most anticipated red carpet looks. Last year’s event had to forego in-person audiences due to the pandemic, so it was an exciting time for everyone. Here are some of the best outfits that graced the event earlier.
Brazilian singer Anitta went the Old Hollywood Glam route with her red lips and plunging neckline dress by Miss Sohee.
Madison Beer looked gorgeous in her vintage Dolce & Gabbana high-slit corset dress that Queen Bey herself also wore back in 2003 on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Lil Nas X
The controversial Montero singer, Lil Nas X, donned a two-piece lavender set from Versace with an off-the-shoulder top and train that matched his mullet.
As this year’s VMA host, Doja Cat brought a few wardrobe choices. Her black and maroon bodysuit and red over-the-knee-platform boots made quite an entrance.
Bretman felt honored to wear the same Roberto Cavalli dress singer Aaliyah wore 21 years ago and did the tiger print justice.
VMA 2021 Best New Artist winner Olivia Rodrigo was giving Catriona Gray vibes in her fitted Spring/Summer 2001 Versace dress.
A black and gold baroque Versace jacket is hard not to notice, and Ed Sheeran definitely caught attention with his ensemble.

Duo Chloe and Halle owned their style with Chloe dressing in a silver ball gown from Marni’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection, while Halle wore a daring plunging white gown from Monot.
Pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne rocked her pink plaid Area PF21 pantsuit and sparkly bralette and looked like she hasn’t aged at all.

The couple dazzled in their sequined outfits, with Fox baring her figure in a Mugler dress and MGK in an all-red suit by Dolce & Gabbana.
Build a B*tch singer Bella Poarch wore a sheer lace and a ruffled buster to the red cart, channeling her inner goth.
Kim Petras got literally masked up and stood out in a whimsical Richard Quinn Fall/Winter 2021 get up.
