With social distancing rules in place, the MTV VMAs happened last night with Lady Gaga and The Weeknd taking home the big awards (see the complete list of winners here) and, surprisingly enough, the fans at home were even granted access to the red carpet, which was walked by some of the most stylish stars in Hollywood.

While there was not the regular brouhaha attached to a regular red carpet affair, Lady Gaga, Jaden Smith, and more showed up to flaunt their 'fits, celebrating artistry for one of the biggest nights of the year in music.

The red carpet was not as bountiful as it normally is but still, stars like The Weeknd (with his After Hours broken nose), Miley Cyrus, Machine Gun Kelly in his all-pink ensemble, Travis Barker, DaBaby, the Black Eyed Peas, Bebe Rexha, Doja Cat, and more made sure to make the night special despite the socially-distanced nature of the event.

As we continue navigating the new world post-COVID, it will be interesting to see how award shows adapt. Obviously, this was a pretty well-organized night, meaning that some of the other big shows could take a cue and ensure more fun in the near future.
