Red carpet: MTV Movie Awards 2014

There were only three words on everyone’s lips after the MTV Movie Awards last night and that was ZAC EFRON SHIRTLESS.

Behold the beauty:

Where was I?

The red carpet fashion proved somewhat of a mixed bag as always when it comes to cast members of MTV shows mingling amongst film stars. I also only recognised about 30% of the people walking the red carpet so I’ll stick to who I know..

Shailene Woodley has been a regular feature on best dressed lists recently after her promo tour for new movie Divergent. Her style is known to be very laid back and verging on the lazy (i.e bare feet, no make up), but she’s been knocking it out of the park and this latest Balmain look is no exception. For some this olive leather look may be a bit like marmite but I love the tough girl edge via the belted skirt and gladiator type sandals and that little flash of skin via that knot feature.

I normally discount Rita Ora whenever she appears on a red carpet because I just cannot get on board with her style. But this black satin very deep cleavage dress by Barbara Casasola, those blonde tumbling waves and that not-going-anywhere red lip all works perfectly. Well done Rita, and I salute you for ripping off Zac Efron’s shirt.

Of course Jessica Alba does sexy and cute like only she can. Her Piece d’Anarchive crop top is super simple and very easy to replicate on the high street along with her full ball skirt by one of her favourite brnad Kenzo. The mix of citrus and white is so effective with a little touch of monochrome via her shoes, Jessica is working every spring trend to perfection.

Chrissy Teigen has been an awards carpet regular this year, being the perfect plus one to her musician hubby John Legend. She either goes full on glamazon sexy or super cute and girly, the latter is what she chose to channel at the MTV Movie Awards in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture bird print dress. I’m glad that we’ve seen quite a lot of Ulyana’s collection because I basically loved it and love Chrissy in this in spite of the boring shoes.

Another Ulyana Sergeenko Couture creation, this time modelled by Rihanna. Some said on my Twitter feed that it looked like she was ready for bed, and Rihanna is known for doing the whole lingerie look to the extreme but what I love about this particular boudoir-inspired look was her toned down styling. The wavy hair pinned loosely back with face-framing tendrils, the stunning bronze make up and the matching nude shoes just totally worked. Someone else, say Rita Ora for example, wouldn’t been able to resist adding that red lip and making it trashy but Rihanna works it like only she can, this is one of my favourite looks from her in a long time.

Another major departure from her usual style on the red carpet was Nicki Minaj. I couldn’t believe how amazing she looked with her natural hair colour minus all the bells and whistles she normally sports. Wearing a figure-hugging black Alexander McQueen gown what made it stand out was her McQueen jewellery, are arm bangles going to make a comeback?

I’ve missed Lupita Nyong’o from the red carpet. She made a bold appearance in a multicoloured Chanel dress at the MTV Movie Awards. I think I only half love it because of the high neck but I think Lupita can pull off anything and those sky blue Casadei Blade pumps are to die for.

I adore Leslie Mann’s flirty polka dot Juan Carlos Obando dress. It’s great for this type of event and pairing orange shoes with black is something I absolutely must try this summer!
