This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Much Music Video Awards. And in the past 25 years we’ve seen some pretty amazing performers grace the MMVA stage. From Kanye West to Katy Perry, some of music’s greatest performers have helped make MMVA history. And a big part of what makes the MMVA performances so special are the outfits. Who could forget Lady Gaga’s flaming bra in 2009? In honour of this milestone celebration we are looking back at the most iconic performers’ outfits from the past 25 years.
Don’t forget to watch the 2014 MMVAs to see who else will make MMVA fashion history. The 2014 MMVAs are on Sunday, June 15 at 9E/6P on Much, CTV and CTV GO.
