When we say that the guestlist for this year’s VMAs was jampacked with A-listers, we’re not exaggerating.
And yet, despite a sea of celebs on the red carpet, it was 88-year-old Internet sensation and all-round flawless queen Baddie Winkle who stole the show for us.
Baddie, best known for catchphrase ‘Stealing Your Man Since 1928’ and advocacy of decriminalising marijuana, was snapped on her way into the event in an outfit we don’t think words can even do justice, so here she is.
No, you’re not mistaken, that is 88-year-old grandmother Baddie Winkle sporting a glittering leotard, looking like she’s ready for her own Las Vegas residency.
Rhinestones clearly being the theme of the evening, Baddie also boasted bejeweled nails and some high heel shoes, emblazoned with some sparkly stars - and even her cane had been specially blinged up for the occasion.
Talk about red carpet goals, right?
Baddie Winkle first rose to prominence last year, when her granddaughter persuaded her to try on some of her clothes and pose for a Twitter photo, bagging her a follow from none other than Rihanna, who won the Video Vanguard Award at this year’s VMAs bash.
