The MTV Video Music Awards have a long history of wild fashion moments. Lady Gaga‘s infamous meat dress, Lil Kim’s revealing one-shoulder jumpsuit, and Britney Spears‘ use of a live snake as an accessory all went down at the annual event. Along with honoring the best and brightest talents in music, the VMAs have become an opportunity for celebs to wow spectators with their bold looks. This year, it seems like the stars were even more eager to pull out all the stops — especially given that the 2020 VMAs were held virtually due to pandemic restrictions.
