We’re coming up on the advent of awards-show season again, a magical time when every Sunday night becomes an opportunity to debut your comfiest pajamas, craft a James Beard Award-worthy snack (or just some microwave nachos, it’s your life), and settle down on the couch to watch famous people try to seem relatable and laid-back while they accept trophies. 

If I’m sounding cynical, please know that I genuinely adore award shows, and the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards are some of my favorites; after all, when else do you get to see your faves perform and be rewarded for it? Below, find all the details you need to take in this year’s VMAs in style.
