The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards brought colorful performances and big winners during the socially-distant awards show on Sunday, August 30.

However, Lady Gaga definitely stole the night. The “Sour Candy” songstress rocked a plethora of stylish alien-like facemasks. She pulled out a whopping seven looks during the two-hour show and each one was more show-stopping than the next.

“I think as she’s grown and matured and really come into her own and you can see — I mean, she talks about how much more confident she’s become as a person — and I think you see that in the way that she’s styling herself as well,” Kerin Rose Gold, a longtime pal of the NYC native and creative designer previously told Life & Style. “I love that she’s always down to take a risk and doesn’t care about current trends but at the same time, has done a really incredible job at going really elegant and really timeless.” 

Kerin added, “She’s done an amazing job at sort of both taking risks and taking a lot of underground fashion and underground creative art and presenting it on a world stage, and she also does an incredible job at being this timeless, glamorous, beautiful woman. I think a lot of women have those dualities in us but we feel like we have to show one or the other and I feel she does both.”

As for other big winners of the night, The Weeknd won Video of the Year and Best R&B while BTS received awards for Best Group, Best Pop and Best K-Pop. Megan Thee Stallion won her first VMA for her song “Savage” in the category Best Hip-Hop.
