New York Fashion Week might be ending, but tonight gives fashion fans another reason to obsess: the MTV Video Music Awards are back! The red carpet just kicked off at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, and is sure to bring us all off the glamour that we've been missing since awards season ended a few months ago.
Native New Yorker Nicki Minaj will be emceeing the broadcast and the evening promises performances from Olivia Rodrigo—who is fresh off the release of her sophomore album, GUTS—Minaj, Sean "Diddy" Combs, and more. Taylor Swift, while not slated to perform, leads in nominations this year with a whopping 11 total nominations, so an appearance is all but guaranteed on the red carpet this evening. Other very fashionable attendees include Reneé Rapp Miley Cyrus, the members of BLACKPINK, and Sabrina Carpenter, so tonight's red carpet is sure to be chock-full of gush-worthy looks. You can watch the broadcast starting at 8 pm EST on September 12. You can watch it on MTV or the broadcast can be streamed via Paramount+.
