The MTV Europe Music Awards were finally back this year with the music industry gathering in Budapest, Hungary, for the ceremony hosted by American rapper Saweetie.

The awards show featured performances by Kim Petras, Ed Sheeran, One Republic and Imagine Dragons, but it was the red carpet arrivals beforehand that we couldn't get enough of.
