I’m an award show devotee and in my opinion, the MTV Movie Awards is one of the best for fashion and beauty looks. Unlike at the Oscars or the Emmys, which are more buttoned up, the MTV Movie Awards give celebs an excuse to have fun on the red carpet. This year’s event didn’t disappoint: from short shorts and high buns to orange lips and peek-a-boo jumpsuits, here are my four favorite looks from last night.
Jessica Biel: One thing Jessica Biel knows how to do extremely well: balance. The beauty showed a lot of leg last night, but her dress kept her nicely covered up on top. What’s more, her stick-straight strands nicely offset her billowy sleeves. Plus, you’ve gotta love anyone who can sport a perfectly blunt fringe.
Leighton Meester: Talk about summer fun! Meester’s white shorts and vest are the definition of effortless chic. Aside from the fact that I’d like to dress like this every day for work, I also admired her orange lip color. The punchy hue is one of this season’s hottest shades and Gossip Girl star couldn’t have worn it better.
Emma Stone: Proving yet again that she can do no wrong on the red carpet, Emma Stone displayed a very fashion-forward corseted dress. Letting the cool geometric neckline speak for itself, Stone pulled her hair up into a loose, romantic updo. She paired the structured look with extra feminine makeup and a beautiful rosy lip. And can we please just talk about those shoes?! I need a pair like now.
Elizabeth Banks: In a word, this ensemble is awesome. I love how the Hunger Games actress is taking a huge fashion risk here—skin-tight jumpsuits can really go one way or another—but it totally pays off. Her sky-high bun, sultry eye makeup, and understated lip are the perfect compliment to the avant-guarde fashion choice.
