The 2020 MTV VMAs Had Plenty Of Fashion Moments β€” Here Are The Most Unforgettable Looks Of The Night

Joey King actually shared her look days before the show aired.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards aired tonight, and they were truly like no other awards show. For one, the "red carpet" was actually a virtual one that was staged ahead of time. Presenters and performers all photographed their looks well before the actual show β€” and some even low-key shared it ahead of time.

Even though the MTV VMAs ended up being largely remote β€” and we missed what was usually the most adventurous red carpet of awards show season β€” there were still plenty of standout looks. Below, scroll through the most unforgettable looks "of the night," or whenever they actually took place.
