Red carpet outfit inspirations in COVID times for your own parties 

Outfit Inspiration

The year 2020 has seen so many never-seen-before things happening that nothing surprises us anymore. During this time of COVID, awards shows are getting creative as well. From zoom call Emmys to spatially dispersed VMAs, the stars adapted well to the ‘new normal’ of red carpet trends. Wedding Affair suggests you take fashion outfit inspiration from these stars as well for your own parties in the times of corona.

80’s disco ball by Miley Cyrus


The year 2020 has been all about the retro trends of the past. So, even though you haven’t had enough opportunities to flaunt outfits in the time of COVID, retro trend is the one to pick. The “Slide Away” singer was a stunner for the VMA. She set fashion goals in a sheer, strapless, and sequined maxi dress by Mugler. Cyrus spotted in an ultra-sexy, see-through number gave us major disco ball vibes. She paired her dress with matching mesh gloves and minimalistic stiletto sandals. Dor her makeup look, she optimised her bleach blonde hair in her new modernized mullet. And like every ‘80s trend, wore a bold red lip to finish off the look. Now that is a total glam party look, isn’t it? And also the perfect outfit inspiration.

Cartoonish Glamour by Zendaya

Has Zendaya ever failed to give us major fashion goals? The 24-year-old actor took home Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series. This was for her excellent performance in HBO’s new series Euphoria. She became the youngest actress ever to win the prize. Well, Emmy awards were on zoom call this time because of the extra-ordinary COVID situation. So, hey! If you’re having a zoom party your self, take outfit inspiration from Zendaya’s style. She wore a silk taffeta gown by Christopher John Rogers in hues of purple and black. The effect is cartoonish glamour, an Oompa Loompa crossed with the Cheshire Cat, but in the most elegant way possible, according to the CUT.

All Monochrome by Machine Gun Kelly


During the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, Machine Gun Kelly was a major stunner. Hence, the ideal inspiration for your party style. He proved that he can rock the hell out of a trendy pink suit. He appeared for the night in a bright Berluti outfit. Well, monochrome is ‘the look’ of 2020. Then why not style it with a suited look like Kelly’s. Later, remove the blazer and feel cool as a cucumber, like Kelly did. So, for your parties, even during COVID, a monochrome look will work wonder. Even if your step out of the world of zoom-call parties, a matching face mask will make your look even more bad-ass! 

Drama by Lady Gaga

Harper’s Bazaar

At the 2020 VMAs, Lady Gaga was the one with maximum drama. She appeared in multiple outfits, and all of them had their own face masks, because well COVID! So mix and match your party outfits by taking inspiration from the goddess Lady Gaga. Your outfit can also accentuate with the addition of a stylish face mask. For example, Lady Gaga channelled the VMAs’ Moon Person in a silver jacket by Area for the red carpet. She donned a clear helmet by Muscarella, necklace by Edward Avedis, and black platform boots by Pleasers. The clear helmet is the most unique face mask style we have seen until now!

Volumes and Proportions by Regina King


Regina King got a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.  And she made her virtual appearance during the Emmy Awards in the time of COVID every worth of its while. She wore a vibrant blue, brooch-adorned, asymmetrical-hemmed couture gown by Schiaparelli. Volumes and proportions are the ultimate party style when it comes to OTT events. So, take inspiration from the diva herself. Go voluminous, this party season.
