Doja Cat Towers in Platform Heels and Thigh-High Latex Socks + More Red Carpet Arrivals at the 2021 MTV VMAs

The 2021 MTV Music Video Awards are underway tonight in Brooklyn, with stars already hitting the red carpet in daring looks.

Doja Cat, who is serving as host as well as a performer at the event, took a fashion risk in shades of black, purple and red when she made her first appearance. She wore a deep purple shawl draped over a black strapless corset bodysuit. She added stone jewelry to her look with a necklace and earrings. She wore more simple rings as well.

The “Planet Her” musician added serious height to her ensemble with platform strappy heels. Her red lace-up heels featured a thicker toe strap and at least seven inches of height to her frame, like the platform heels she wore in May. To add even more drama, she wore matching red latex thigh-high socks.

Kacey Musgraves also hit the red carpet. The “Star-Crossed” singer matched Doja Cat’s color scheme for her initial look with a bright purple mini dress with a high-neck and ruching detailing and red gloves. She went with calmer shoes, however, with clear two-strap open-toe heels. She did, however, add drama with an oversized purple furry headpiece that matched her mini dress — all by Valentino.
