Here come the most-awaited award-show fashion reviews! On August 27, the 34th MTV Video Music Awards took place at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and saw big names playing host, such as Katy Perry, who also performed “Swish Swish” with Nicki Minaj, as well as rapper Kendrick Lamar, who managed to bring home the most “Moon People awards”: six in total.
