While the Oscars and Golden Globes are all about floor-kissing gowns and high-octane glamour, the MTV Movie Awards are a slightly more laid-back affair. Held on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, the ceremony saw Hollywood A-listers dressed to the nines. Most ensembles were vivid and boasted great skill and technique. Here’s a rundown of the looks that caught our attention.
The 30-year-old Lucy star appeared in top form as she donned a curve-hugging coral Zuhair Murad jumpsuit, which comprised an elaborate cut-out neckline and embroidery around the waist. She also wore multi-coloured Sophia Webster sandals and sported her chic pixie cut effortlessly. Carrying a mint-green clutch, the Avengers diva polished up her look with gold drop earrings.
The supermodel’s deep-purple Reem Acra mini-dress boasted a rustic Elizabethan era appeal — from lace to vintage pockets to dramatic draping to intricate needlework to a mini turtleneck, it couldn’t get more retro than that. Keeping her make-up minimal, the Paper Towns actor flaunted her impeccable complexion and wowed in a quaint yet elegant hairstyle with a soft curl in the front. Perfect.
Leading the worst dressed list, the Divergent star sported a black-and-white-striped top, tucked into intricately designed navy blue trousers, which left us dizzy. She completed the busy-patterned look with a pair of unsightly, chunky black leather boots with silver detailing and a matching belt. The actor wore her short brunette locks combed to the side and rounded off her look with a swipe of bright red lipstick.
Amber, who’s famed for her risqué red carpet styles, enticed us with her outfit selection of a slick pencil dress. The wife of rapper Wiz Khalifa sported the well-fitted white sleeveless number, which featured shimmering silver detailing as she paired the look with sequined open-toed heels. She glammed up her look with flawless, luminous make-up and a nude-pink pout. Also, we utterly loved her platinum hair up-do.
