MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet Style: The Good and the Eye-Crossingly Bad

What was good was good on the red carpet. What was bad was boring. Guess the usual suspects stayed home!

Okay, MTV had the lamest ever red carpet coverage for their MTV Movie Awards in the history of red carpet coverage. It was sandwiched in between the Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crews show and commercials. We did see three big trends: animal prints, lace and metallics.

Read on to find out where Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Szohr, Brooklyn Decker, Jessica Szhor and Kristen Stewart fell in the "thrilled us" or "made our eyes cross with ennui" lists.


Reese Witherspoon

This year, Reese Witherspoon walked away with the MTV Movie Awards Generation Award. And she's only 34! When Reese walked onstage in her in green and brown leopard print dress and silver Ferragamo sandals, she was all smiles. Her speech, however, came out of left field and appeared to slam half of Hollywood!

"I just want to say to all the girls out there, I know it's cool to be bad. I get it; but it's also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed. And like, if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hid your face, people. It's totally possible to be a good girl and make it."

Kristen Stewart

OMG people! Kristen Stewart smiled on the red carpet! It was possibly her best moment of the night. She spent the majority of the evening sitting in her seat with her head hanging low. At least she looked great in her metallic accented fire red Balmain cocktail dress.

Nina Dobrev

Another vampire in red! Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev also showed up in a red bow embroidered dress by Georges Chakra. She also wore silver peep toes (maybe to keep werewolves away) and loose curls.

Selena Gomez

What's a red carpet best dressed round-up without Selena Gomez? The 18-year old always looks so fashionable, fresh and just plain adorable on any red carpet. She looked awesom in her printed Giambattista Valli dress, Casadei heels and a Cecelia clutch. Look for more of her cuteness later this summer when her movie Monte Carlo hits the theaters.

Chelsea Kane

Fellow Disney cutie and DWTS alumni Chelsea Kane looked adorable in a black lace bustier over a nude dress with peplum by Maria Lucia Hohan, gold Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a black clutch. Her red carpet date was Stephen Colletti of MTV's Laguna Beach.

Lily Collin

You know Lily Collin from Snow White, and you'll be seeing her more in Abduction with Taylor Lautner. She looked fantastic in a leopard Dolce & Gabbana print dress and Louboutin black suede peep-toes.

Katie Cassidy

Katie Cassidy is one of Selena's costars in the movie, Monte Carlo. She wore the third trend of the night: lace. Her long Catherine Malandrino ivory lace gown was not too dressy for the night and it was definitely very sexy.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson is another star who always gets it right -- on and off the red carpet. Last night she wore a beaded Marchesa dress and six-inch Brian Atwood heels. I wonder if she practiced wearing those shoes at home before she went out...

Emma Stone

Emma Stone's hair is now strawberry blonde and it looks great on her. Her lacey Bottega Veneta dress, orange satin woven clutch and burnt orange satin Casedei pumps worked together beautifully.

Blake Lively

Presenter Blake Lively looked super sleek and chic in her royal blue Michael Kors dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and purple Louboutin heels. She stayed composed during all the barbs that were tossed at her during the show. (See Reese Witherspoon, above!)

Leighton Meester

Leighton Meester looked fab, not scary at all (remember The Roommate?) on the red carpet.Hher metallic embroidered and beaded cocktail dress looks amazing. The only question is, how much does that thing weigh?

Rosie-Huntington Whiteley

Talk about red carpet presence! Transformers star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in a Dolce & Gabbana tiger print dress, Salvatore Ferragamo bag and Sergio Rossi shoes owned it!


Aimee Teegarden

Look it's a beach towel! Who knew those suckers could be so versatile? Apparently only Aimee Teegarden.

Jessica Szohr

Oh, this is painful. And doesn't Jessica Szohr look upset? Her paisley printed jumpsuit by Alice + Olivia is beyond overwhelming.

Amanda Bynes

Can you say orange? Looks like Amanda Bynes over did the spray tan just a tad. Her Hervé Léger dress also looks painted on. Will def borrow the vintage Chanel clutch.

Brooklyn Decker

Can anyone figure out what it is that Brooklyn Decker is wearing? I swore I saw it on an episode of The Golden Girls.

Nikki Reed

Nikki Reed usually has great fashion instincts and has never made a worst dressed list. Until last night. This Heather dress doesn't do a thing for her. At all.

Crystal Reed

I think Crystal Reed of MTV's Teen Wolf is hoping they're gonna do a remake of the '80s flick Valley Girl.

Holland Roden

Does Holland Roden also of Teen Wolf share the same "stylist" as Kesha? This dress is an awful echo of the one that Kesha wore at the Billboards Awards.

Terri Seymour

Metallics may be big now, but the fabric on Terri Seymour's dress looks cheap, does weird things to her figure and the neckline is all wrong for her.

Tell us: Who do you think was the best and the worst dressed of the night?
