2012 MTV Movie Awards

If there are two things I'm disgustingly obsessed with, it's Russell Brand and Fun. As we all know by now, Fun is my favorite band- even before "We Are Young." And let's be honest: who doesn't love Russell Brand? I can happily say that I've read both his memoirs, own his comedy DVD, and cannot wait to see Rock of Ages. So obviously I was excited for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. Let me just say that the fashion did not disappoint- there were some stellar looks and horrific ensembles that I couldn't have dreamed of if I tried. Ready for a crash-course in the red carpet? Let's hope you are!

The Worst
Shailene Woodley in Stella McCartney: I wish this wasn't on my worst dress list; however, I blame it all on Shailene's hair sylist. Stella's feminine pantsuit looks perfect on Shailene- the top's silhouette gives her a curvy figure while the bare back is super sexy. But that hair ruined everything. As she was accepting her award for "Best Breakout Star," I was too consumed by ill-styled locks...oh and how she kept saying "dude." It's not that the hair was "messy chic," it was literally falling apart. Major no-no. This just goes to show you how crucial your hairstyle can be. (Photo Cred)
Julianne Hough in Sally LaPointe: My heart is actually breaking. There is so much that's wrong with this ensemble, where to begin. The mid-drift? Ab-bearing ensembles are huge this season; however, it's all about proportion. Word from the wise: a crop top, regardless of the sleeves, with a mini skirt is tasteless. Speaking of that skirt, we should talk about that peplum. Wrong trend at the wrong time! No need to sport two edgy trends at once! It's like she's trying to overcompensate for the god-awful straightening job. I'm sure her outfits in Rock ofAges are chicer.  (Photo Cred)
Brooke Hogan: For once, I am genuinely speechless. Like, I'm tying to find the appropriate words to describe my feelings, but all of the phrases I can think of are painfully crass. And for that, I will refrain. But just know that this ensemble makes me sick to my stomach.(Photo Cred)
Though I don't like bashing Elizabeth Banks or Elie Saab,  it's my duty to teach them a valuable lesson. First of all, this jumpsuit scares me. Perhaps it's the detailing, but this playsuit reminds me of a spider. If this outfit wasn't disappointing enough, what is going on with Elizabeth's hair? Trust me, I love the fashion girl bun as much as the next stylista, but she looks way too serious. Lighten up  girl, it's an MTV awards show.(Photo Cred)
Ciara in Balmain: I love the concept, but why is this so short? I'm mildly traumatized. (Photo Cred)
Josh Hutcherson: Sure, this is a terrible photograph, but maybe it'll help show you how horrid this ensemble is. Note to all single guys: drop the hipster hats. Baseball hats? Fine. Knit beanies? Cute. But these indie fedoras? Just stop. They make me uncomfortable and 99.9% of the time, you'll look like an idiot. If that wasn't enough, the proportions of this ensemble was just wrong. Too baggy in some places, but too tight in others (like the upper thigh/ crotch area). I'm concerned. This whole ensemble is also way too wrinkly. He would've been so much better with dark wash jeans and a light chambray. I should be Josh Hutcherson's stylist. Obviously. (Photo Cred)

ZZ Ward:Who are you and why do you look so terrible? For the record, both are serious questions. Stop me if I'm wrong, but all my research makes it seem as if she's wearing a navy suit with a black hat. While I love navy and black together, it looks like she's trying to make them look like one hue. So wrong! The key to mastering a black and navy ensemble is putting them right next to each other. That way, you're telling critics, "I have NOTHING to hide!" Also, what's with that shirt? Sure, I love Urban Outfitters as much as the next teen, but enough is enough!  (Photo Cred)

Lucy Hale in Catherine Malandrino: As much as I love Lucy Hale, and as much as I love color-blocking, this dress has to go. Nothing makes sense! Let's have a crash course in color-blocking, shall we? If you're rocking this colorful trend, make sure the rest of the accessories are neutral. While metallics can be considered neutral on special occasions, this is not one of those occasions.  The metallics and the various colors are competing with each other. A classic case of poor styling, if you will.(Photo Cred)
Nicky Hilton: I'm so confused right now. The dress screams "sweet sixteen," but those pointed shoes are uncomfortably matronly. On a side note, can we just reflect on how skeletal Nicky looks? I feel bad. (Photo Cred)

Mila Kunis in Fendi: If I could have one sound effect to describe this ensemble, it'd be "belgh." This ensemble is either here nor there and a little too short for my liking. Speaking of the length, the hemline looks a little sloppy. It's not even that this dress is horrible: it's just that I expected better from Mila.(Photo Cred)

The Best
Charlize Theron in Lanvin: Though my friends and I found Snow White and the Huntsman to be boring and super long, I must say that I have a mild girl-crush on Charlize Theron. Not only is she a phenomenal actress, but she's always a red carpet staple. Fortunately, she ceases to amaze us. The ketchup red is gorgeous with her complexion and I love the peplum's wave-like effect. The down do and strappy sandals give this ensemble a dash of summery fun. But really, can you ever go wrong in Lanvin?  (Photo Cred)
Emma Stone in Martin Grant: Seriously, this is so flawless. I'm obsessed with the black and beige motif. While the matching shoes and ensemble may sound overbearing in theory, Stone plays with silhouettes to make this interesting. Sophistication hits the MTV Movie Awards as Stone finishes off this ensemble with a gorgeous updo and bright pink lip. This look has been criticized for looking too sophisticated, but would you rather have a million Brooke Hogans running around? (Photo Cred)

Emma Watson in Brood: If anyone can pull off a zany design and make it lovable, it's Emma Watson. Brood's quirky pattern and questionable peplums are deemed stylish through Watson's styling.The bold bracelets and tough, strappy sandals make this whole ensemble rocker chic. Let's be honest, Watson could wear a plastic bag and still be the coolest girl at the party. On a random side note, I just watched the trailer for her new film,  The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and died a little bit on the inside. (Photo Cred)
Kat Graham: Definitely my favorite of the night. She looks sophisticated and super trendy. Since her black gown is long-sleeved, and neither the v neck nor the high slit are too revealing, Graham looks sultry not slutty. The Style Correspondent's gilded accessories prevent another "Angelina's leg" moment by keeping this look fun and youthful (as opposed to overtly vixen). The neutral makeup, slicked back hair, and stunning platform sandals are perfect. Literally, perfect. (Photo Cred)

Chris Hemsworth in Hugo Boss: This is the perfect gentleman apparel for the MTV Movie Awards. Though the concept of the ensemble suggests an uber formal attire, the lack of a jacket is crucial- it makes him look like he's ready to have a good time. And where better than the 2012 MTV Movie Awards? All in all this outfit is relaxed, yet sophisticated. And it doesn't hurt that it's on Chris Hemsworth...(Photo Cred)
Janelle Monae: If you thought Monae was going to wear a dress, you're 110% wrong. What I love about Monae is how dedicated she is to her menswear-inspired style. Though her outfits have the same concept, she never bores us. The ankle hemline and punchy, pink lip gives us something to gush over. Hats off to that! (Photo Cred)
Andy Samberg:  I have this unspoken theory that Andy Samberg and I would make a lovely couple. Don't ask me why, but I have this irrational love for him. This love only deepens with this A+ outfits. To every, single man out there: this is what you should wear every, single day. The suit jacket and polo create a quirky combination; however, the monochromatism makes it acceptable. Samberg's fresh "kicks" gives this look a pop of color as well as a dash of youthfulness. Swoon city? A little bit.(Photo Cred)
