The statue, given to winners at the MTV Video Music Awards, has been redesigned for this year’s ceremony by fashion designer Jeremy Scott. Scott, who creates bold, over-the-top looks for both his own line and Moschino, is a favorite of the pop star set—he’s dressed Madonna, Katy Perry, Rita Ora and this year’s VMAs host, Miley Cyrus.

The redesigned Moonman features a peace sign, Jeremy Scott sneakers and TV color bars. Scott’s creation is only the second time the astronaut statue has received a facelift—the artist KAWS put his spin on the award for the 2013 ceremony.

See who gets to take home one of these bad boys when the VMAs air Sunday, Aug. 30 at 9/8c. The Weeknd is the only performer confirmed thus far for the ceremony, but with Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar leading the nominations, expect more announcements soon.
