#MTV VMA’s 2020: Lowkey Glam, Highkey Explosive: The Must See Looks & Performances Of The Night

COVID-19 and the resulting pandemic has taken a toll on events and our social lives as we continue to physical distance. Numerous big events have been cancelled since the beginning of the outbreak as people took to their homes. However, as people are starting to get used to the ‘new norm’ of SOPs and face masks, we’re seeing more and more events brought back to life while incorporating these ‘new norm’ practices. And one of the biggest events of the year, the MTV Video Music Awards is one such event! While many celebrities stayed home or performed from where they are, those that were able to make it to New York on the 30th of August didn’t disappoint with both their looks and their performances! Take a look at the glitzy night’s fashion here!
