Taylor Swift made a grand return to the MTV VMAs on Monday. The singer, who released her seventh album Lover on Aug. 23, kept things cool in a colorful ensemble and black boots as she stepped out on the red carpet before her show-stopping performance.
The last time Taylor attended the show was all the way back in 2015, when she joined Nicki Minaj for the opening performance, presented then-friend Kanye West with the Vanguard Award, and took home video of the year for "Bad Blood." Needless to say, a lot has changed since then. See even more pictures from Taylor's big night ahead.
