MAMAS 2020 (Mnet Asian Music Awards) Best/Worst Dressed

 The 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) kicked off yesterday Dec 6th. Though there was no audience many artist still came with their best gear. Let’s look at some of the best and not so good. 

Also this is my first MAMA’s fashion review since the 2015 MAMA’s! Wow, it’s been a minute but if you’d like to check out those previous reviews click here. 

I’ll also include some of my favorite stage performance looks as well. 

Now let’s get into it!

Best Male Group

Stray Kids

Best Female Group


The English The Crown-esqe equestrian vibe from Moonbyul is chefs kiss. I also adored Wheein’s IG street-style vibe – basically a playful street glam. Hwasa’s all black androgynous look was perfect as well as the 90’s style glam from Solar.

Best Solo Male

Song Joong Ki

Dapper, regal…looking like he walked straight out of a movie – no one does it like SJK. The contrasting silk and velvet fabrics really add a stylish layer to an otherwise ordinary black suit.

Best Solo Female

Soo Young of SNSD

As soon as I saw her photo my mouth dropped: Miss SooYoung came to slay! The red color was a perfect bold choice that kisses her skin, the wrap waist shows off her curves and the thigh high split showcases a sassy elegance. I’ll even go as far to say this is the best look I’ve ever seen on a Korean female singer from an awards red carpet EVER. And if not that, at least in the 10 years I’ve watched and covered fashion from Korean award shows. Bravo, bravo.

Best Dressed






Jessi also came to slay! She looks amazing in this metallic cut out gown. I loved that she dressed it up despite it being a calmer awards show this year. Only item I’d change is the bag – it’s an old style. I’d switch it was a square clutch with a wrist strap. I want to see more of this glam from girl groups in particular.  
Bae Jung Nam

Park Ha Seon


I’m still currently watching all the stages but as of now my favorite performance of the night include King Taemin, Stray Kids, Ateez, JessixHwasa stage and Twice.

NCT 2020 (NCT 127/NCT U/NCT Dream/WayV)

Oh My Girl

The Boys



Worst Dressed

This worst dressed list is the shortest I’ve ever put together! This year most brought their A game: just a handful did not. 



The blues clashed with the grays too much. It’s as if the recipe was a school uniform meets professional suit uniform that didn’t bake well. To A+ this look I’d have their stylist look at EXO’s Growl looks. 


Some of the looks I enjoyed but overall it came off a bit campy when all together. I love the floor length gowns the best but the shorter ones came off very Windsor/Debs for me. Those stores are fine to shop at but for a red carpet I’d want more elevated looks. 


Unfortunately my bae, The King of Dance, The King of Artistry, The King of Cuteness ended up on my dislike list. It was the coin decor and blue button up for me.
