26th August was the day of the 36th edition of the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony. It was held in New Jersey and the host was Sebastian Maniscalco.
Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift were the most nominated artists this year. Each of them got 3 awards: Ariana Grande for Artist of the Year, Best Art Direction (for the song “7 Rings”)and Song of Summer (that would be “Boyfriend”, in case you’re wondering) and miss Swift for Best Visual Effects (for her tune “Me”), Video of the Year & Video for Good (for “You Need to Calm Down”).
The same amount of astronaut statues was given to Billie Eillish. The 17-year-old singer won the prizes for Best New Artist, Push Artist of the Year, Best Editing (for “Bad Guy”). Missie Elliot won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The first-ever Fashion Trailblazer Аward was given to the one and only Marc Jacobs.
Who wore what on the red carpet?
Taylor Swift donned a chic retro look in Versace. Camila Cabello was sweet and romantic in Balmain. Halsey was extravagant – not just because of her Dundas outfit, but also because of the rainbow in her hair. In her own words, FKA Twigs was “the lady and the unicorn”.
Shawn Mendes tried to look hot in an emerald green Dolce & Gabbana suit, Rick Ross was screaming Gucci all over the place, Diplo showed a unique custom ensemble from The Elder Statesman and Lenny Kravitz tried to look like… well, Lenny Kravitz. And he nailed it!
