After music's biggest party comes, you guessed it, the after-parties!
Following Monday night's 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, the audience's most recognizable faces slipped into some more comfortable looks and kept the festivities going at a variety of exclusive parties.
Video Vanguard Award winner Missy Elliott hosted a lively bash of her own, bringing together rap royalty for a celebration that latest into the wee hours of the morning: Cardi B, Lil' Kim, Queen Latifah and more were on-hand for the soirée, as were Regina King, Winnie Harlow and Lizzo.

Elsewhere, Republic Records toasted their big winners of the night including Taylor Swift and Jonas Brothers at Moxy Chelsea's The Fleur Room. Swift posed alongside the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, while Halsey, Bebe Rexha, Diplo and Lil Nas X all also made appearances.
Perhaps most notably, though, Miley Cyrus and girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, stepped out for the after-show festivities, holding hands as paparazzi snapped away and they walked into a bash with Cyrus' mom, Tish.
