This year’s MTV Video Music Awards took place in New Jersey on Tuesday night, and, as ever, drew in a seriously A-list crowd.
Presumably in a nod to the night’s emcee Nicki Minaj, the usual red carpet was replaced with a Barbie pink one, with some of the biggest names in music striking a pose for photographers as they made their way into the VMAs.
Among those in attendance were Taylor Swift, who was also the night’s runaway success with a total of nine wins, and Shakira, who joined the ranks of some of pop’s most influential figures when she was bestowed the Video Vanguard Award.
Before her attention-grabbing performance, Doja Cat also made a big impression with her cobweb-inspired dress (a nod to her upcoming album Scarlet’s cover), while Lil Nas X kept it low-key as ever in a lacy top, chunky platform boots and a white feathered headpiece (oh, and naturally, a prop Bible).
As for the British celebs on the guestlist, chart-topping singer Rita Ora, former Eurovision favourite Sam Ryder and media personality Amelia Dimoldenberg were all representing the UK on the pink carpet.
