This year's Video Music Awards were never going to be just another awards show: 2020's universe flipped awards season on its head and took the red carpet with it.

While most black-tie celebrity events have been cancelled or pushed online, the VMAs managed to be one of the first COVID-era functions to tie in an in-person element, thanks to closely followed social-distancing guidelines, green screens, and some (frankly, quite cringey) canned laughter.

Despite the ghost town ambiance and elaborate face masks, some things are inextricable from the VMAs — mess, for one, and Lady Gaga Lady Gagaing, for two — pandemic or not.

Lady Gaga's four-look evening had our heads spinning, but one dress truly floored us: an absolutely massive silk taffeta ball gown by Christopher John Rogers in an iridescent green fabric called "Baja Blast."

The teal-colored Mountain Dew flavour exclusive to Taco Bell drive-thru chains is the inspiration behind the fabric.

Christopher John Rogers has been heralded as one of the most important new designers to watch, and this high-brow/low-brow moment is just a tropical-lime taste of his genius.

As his popularity surged particularly over the past few months, it's nearly impossible to find his designer pieces in stock (Black-owned boutique McMullen has a handful of pieces on sale!), so in the meantime, we're adding any and every Baja Blast-tone piece we can find to our fall closets.
