Avril Lavigne Returned to the Red Carpet after a Two-Year Absence
Avril Lavigne made her first red carpet appearance at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12, 2021, as well as made her first red carpet debut with her new boyfriend!
"Sk8er Boi" singer Avril Lavigne made her first red carpet appearance after nearly two years this weekend at the MTV VMAs. Her last appearance was in January 2020, when she attended the Recording Academy's pre-Grammy gala.
Lavigne strutted the carpet in her classic punk-rock and pink style wearing a pink plaid suit from Area PF21. The suit featured a large heart-shaped cut-out on the front of the jacket.
The cut-out showed off a black bandeau embellished with silver rhinestones. The singer accessorized the look with a small jewel bag and black platform heels.
MTV's Instagram page shared a few photos of her look and many fans shared their excitement in seeing the "Complicated" singer at the VMAs in the comment section of the post, which was captioned:
"hey hey YOU YOU @avrillavigne is at the #vmas!! I can’t even contain my excitement 🤯."
The post also featured a photo of Lavigne with her new boyfriend, Mod Sun, who rocked green hair and a patchwork-inspired suit alongside her. The occasion was the couple's red carpet debut.
Although the event was Lavigne's first red carpet in over a year, the singer has been making music following her comeback in 2018, including a few songs she released this year in collaboration with other artists.
Lavigne told People that he was an incredible artist and producer.
Some of those artists include Willow and Travis Baker. The trio collaborated on a song titled "GROW," which was featured on Willow's album, "Lately I Feel Everything."
Lavigne also collaborated with her own boyfriend, releasing their song "Flames" in January this year. Sun shared a promo photo of the two on Instagram and wrote:
"The fastest growing song of my entire career is officially 'FLAMES'🥺thank u so much for all the support....special thanks to Queen Lavigne..."
After their song was released, rumors of a possible relationship sparked in February 2021 when the couple was spotted on a dinner date at the BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles.
The source shared that the couple was having fun together after dating for a few months. Both artists have publically shared their admiration for one another. Lavigne told People that he was an incredible artist and producer.
Back in January, Sun also revealed Lavigne was one of his favorite voices in music. Hopefully, fans will hear more collaborations from the couple, with Lavigne telling People "Flames" was the first of many songs they plan to do together.
