Confirmed: It’s actually Lady Gaga’s world, and we’re all just living in it. Tuning into the 2020 MTV VMAs, you’ll see stars stepping out on the socially distant red carpet and performing on outdoor stages, but it’s none other than Mother Monster herself who has our jaws dropping at every turn. The performer (who’s won three awards this evening and counting) has made a number of appearances so far at the award show. With each new look, she’s styled a different face mask (or in one case, a literal helmet)—each more epic than the last.
Whether it was her astronaut-inspired helmet or her silver sequinned mask, Gaga’s protective gear is downright iconic. Seeing as face masks have become an essential part of our wardrobes this year, these looks couldn’t be more relevant for 2020. To see every mask, shield, and face-covering Lady Gaga has worn at the VMAs, just keep scrolling.
