Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 MTV Movie Awards

The MTV Movie awards were last night. Overall, they were less painful than I expected. Jason Sudeikis was pretty funny, the fashion was subpar and the backdrop on stage really confused me, but I didn’t mind that 2 hours of my life so I can’t complain.

Let’s get to the stuff that really matters…the red carpet of course.


Amanda Bynes in Hervé Léger

Man did I LOVE Amanda Bynes in her All That days. However, I am so not loving her now…in this getup. I’m all for a bold shoe but these have no business being paired with this dress. I hope this is not the work of a stylist because if it is, they should probably consider another profession.


Brooklyn Decker in No. 21

Short sequin dress and plain black pumps. Boring. Standard.


Elle Faning in Dolce & Gabbana

I like the individual elements and I’m all for mixing prints but I’m just not feeling this. And although this is not the most formal award show, I still find this outfit a little casual for the occasion.


Emma Watson in Marchesa

A little simple for my taste, but she looks really great here. These types of award shows tend to bring out the “trashy” when it comes to celeb style but Emma looks classic and chic here. So refreshing to see a look I don’t hate.


Hailee Steinfeld in Louis Vuitton

She’s been on a great red carpet streak since the SAG awards, but unfortunately….all good things must come to an end. She’s SO adorable and so young…why would she even think about wearing a pantsuit? AND it’s June. Nothing about this outfit says Spring/Summer…nor does it say “I’m 14.”


Jessica Szohr in Alice & Olivia

I never really cared for her story lines in Gossip Girl, nor do I care for this jumpsuit.


Kristen Stewart in Balmain

Let’s start off with this positive…she doesn’t look miserable. So I feel bad dissing her outfit. But let’s be honest…it’s a too-short dress with safety pins. Erica Domesek of PS I Made This could have actually made this. And pointy black pumps? Nine West circa 2006.


Leighton Meester in Balmain

I always want to like her red carpet looks, but I never really do. To be honest, this could have been much worse but I just can’t stop thinking of the JLo disco ball dress (I know there’s many but I mean this one).


Nikki Reed in Heather

I’ve never seen or read Twilight but this looks like Twilight.


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Dolce & Gabbana

I’m not the biggest fan of animal print and those shoes look like flat thong sandals at a glance…but overall it’s not terrible. She’s gorgeous so it’s hard for her to look bad, but at the same time…she’s gorgeous so she could have definitely done better.


Selena Gomez in Giambattista Valli

She dresses very sophisticated for her age but I don’t hate it. This is actually a more complex than she usually wears. The overall look is pretty standard though. But of course…she looks gorgeous.


Emma Stone in Bottega Veneta

Let me start off by saying…thank goodness she’s back to this hair color (was not feeling the blonde). Let’s move on by CONGRATULATING EMMA…for not only winning some award in a category I can’t remember (and was probably not that important to begin with) but for being the BEST DRESSED OF THE NIGHT. I absolutely love this dress, and even more on her. Perfect bag. Perfect shoes. Overall perfection!


Mila Kunis in Balmain

If you didn’t watch the awards show, this photo may or may not confuse you. Either way, Mila is yet another celeb wearing Balmain…and unfortunately another miss for me. It’s not that I hate the outfit, because I don’t, but it’s just another “going out” outfit. If you’re going to attend an awards show, especially if you’re presenting, you should try a little harder (even if it’s just MTV).

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 SAG Awards (Part 1)

The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were yesterday and the Red Carpet looks were pretty overall…but not much more than that. I definitely thought the Golden Globes looks (see Golden Globes Fashion part 1 and part 2) were far superior but that is also a bigger awards show than the SAGs.

The photos say it all so now it’s time to judge.

Angie Harmon in Monique Lhuillier

It’s a little “pretty pink princess” (with feathers) but it’s a beautiful dress. It would have been a better option for the Oscars…it’s just not SAG appropriate. But I have to say…she is gorgeous regardless.


Claire Danes in Louis Vuitton

I don’t hate it but I don’t love it either. It reminds me a lot of what Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Golden Globes a few weeks ago (most likely because that was Louis Vuitton as well). All I can say is that I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse.


Annette Bening in Tony Ward Couture Fall 2010

For a woman in her 50’s to look this good and this confident on the red carpet is remarkable. It’s a stunning dress that could work on a girl in her 20’s all  the way up to a woman in her 50’s. This was one of my favorite looks from the night.


Christina Hendricks in L'Wren Scott Fall 2010

I really just hate everything she wears on the red carpet. It’s always unflattering in some way, shape or form and I just don’t know what to do with her anymore. It’s too heavy on the top, the makeup isn’t great and I am not feeling the shoes.


Dianna Agron in Vintage Chanel couture

It is not easy to pull off this hemline but she is working this look! I love the hair…it’s sleek but a little messy (in a good way). The slightly smoky eye with the pink lip complements the dress perfectly. Overall this is a great look for her and the perfect dress for this kind of awards show.


Hailee Steinfeld in Prada Spring 2011

Not many people can pull off horizontal stripes, multicolor stripes or anything from the Prada Spring 2011 collection on the red carpet but WOW did Hailee look AWESOME. It was a bold choice but it totally worked for her. Loved the hair…perfectly cute and relaxed. Overall perfection! I am very impressed with this girl’s red carpet choices…I can’t wait to see what she wears at the Oscars!


Heather Morris in Romona Keveza Resort 2010

I love Glee but I don’t always love the cast’s red carpet choices (except for Lea Michele of course). Heather Morris is one of them I usually don’t love. This is the best she has looked on the RC so far. It’s not easy to pull off that shade of nude with her particular hair color and skintone but it’s super flattering and I love the detailing in the bodice.


Helena Bonham Carter in Marc Jacobs

She’s normally an interesting site to see at these types of events but she definitely toned it down for the SAGs. I actually love this dress and it looks fantastic on her. The shoes are perfect. My only comment (which should be obvious) is the hair. But she had to add some of her Helen Bohnam Carterness to the look so I won’t complain.


January Jones in Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2011

This is a big change from the red fringed boobalicious Versace dress she wore to the Golden Globes. I can’t decide if I love or hate the dress. I can decide that I hate the hair. I really do not like the hair. I think I’ve decided I hate the dress.
