Katy Perry hosted last night’s MTV Video Music Awards at the Forum in Inglewood, California, where plenty of drama was expected: Would Miley Cyrus be on her best behavior? Would the debut of Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” video decisively prove that it’s not just a copy of Beyoncé’s’ “Formation”? Performers included Pink, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, Lorde, the Weeknd, and Fifth Harmony. Other things we looked out for: MTV combined gender-specific categories into one Artist of the Year award and launched a new Best Fight Against the System award.
On the red carpet, the music industry gathered in their best, worst, and most prom-tastic gowns and tuxedos. See all the looks in the slideshow ahead.
