Never one to disappoint on the red carpet, Elizabeth Banks brought some much-needed excitement to the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held in Universal City, California, on Sunday evening.

Trying out a very much on-trend jumpsuit, Elizabeth looked stunning in a black Elie Saab Fall 2012 one-piece with edgy lace-like panels.

Elizabeth nails this tricky trend thanks to flawless tailoring, which keeps the entire look sleek.

I am completely enamored with Elizabeth’s hair and makeup on this occasion, as her cool top-knot and smoky eyes give an extra bit of toughness to the look.

Black Ruthie Davis ‘Beverly’ heels, a hot-pink manicure, a Stephen Webster dagger ring and a Lulu Guinness Black Perspex lips clutch complete the ensemble.
