After going virtual last year, the 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards were held in person in Budapest, Hungary, at the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna. Hosted by American rapper Saweetie, the awards saw a long list of the world’s best musicians – both nominated and featured – with Ed Sheeran, Maluma, Måneskin, YUNGBLUD, Kim Petras and Griff all performing live.
And while the performances are incredible, one of the other exciting aspects of the EMAs was the celebrity fashion, and as with many music award shows, they didn’t disappoint. Rita Ora brought the glamor to the red carpet in a black jumpsuit with a feather bodice and train. to handle she opted for her signature cute aesthetic and wore a pastel two-piece set with embellished lace, pearl and silk details. We loved the fact that Maluma went for a classic “music awards show” outfit in a leather jacket and pants set covered in glittering panther-headed studs and gold panther teeth. But we can’t talk about the best dressed without highlighting Måneskin’s Damiano David who wore a sparkly black crop top with latex boots, latex opera gloves and fishnet stockings.
