Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen - MTV Movie Awards 2014Nicki Minaj slinked onto the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13). And, in doing so, she gave me quite the shock of the night.

Rather than parading about in her unapologetically bizarro concoctions, the pint-sized rapper was rather subdued—at least by her standards—in a refined Alexander McQueen figure-scraping, black gown.

While the dress called attention to her hourglass curves, it did so demurely. The loudest shout in this look came from the Midas accessories, as she loaded up on the gold.

In addition to her Cleopatra necklace and earrings, she rocked the same McQueen arm cuffs that we previously saw on Sienna Miller earlier this year.

I have to say that I barely recognized the entertainer without her Rainbow-Brite fashion, nor her over-the-top Crayola makeup and platinum, bleach-blonde locks, which were replaced by sleek, dark Veronica Lake waves and the flick of a cat-eye.

Perhaps her cameo in ‘The Other Woman’ with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton has softened her fashion sense, transforming the style chameleon into a more sophisticated, yet still-edgy vamp star.

Holland Roden In Salvatore Ferragamo - MTV Movie Awards 2014Holland Roden was also at the MTV Movie Awards 2014, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13).

The ‘Teen Wolf’ star wore a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014 nude leather sheath dress, matched to a prim Ferragamo box clutch.

The frock might have benefited from the loss of its belted, half-pleated skirt detail, which looked every bit like a kilt.

However, on this occasion, I was simply enamoured by the styling that really saved the ensemble. With an impossibly mod and still-chic sensibility, Holland rocked a spit-slick ponytail along with flashes of hot, hot-pink in her Brian Atwood pumps, lip lacquer and nails.

A sprinkling of Philosophy jewels and on-trend Meira T ear cuffs was all she needed to complete this look, which was more about the accessories than the dress.

Iggy Azalea In John Galliano - MTV Movie Awards 2014Iggy Azalea was thinking pink at the MTV Movie Awards 2014, hosted at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13),

She’s somewhat of a red-carpet wild child, so I wasn’t all that surprised to see her donning a creative concoction from the John Galliano Spring 2014 collection.

The bodice of the blush-hued dress was punctuated by a series of perforations and eye-popping, 3-D petal-like embellishment.

The techno, synthetic style continued all the way down to her Galliano footwear, as the Aussie rapper wore the same massive, cartoonish platform soles seen on the runway that delivered plenty of kitsch.

Too bad she likewise didn’t keep the sleek, waist-cinching belt—or the sassy coral lip. She did enhance the funky vibe via white eyeliner and a colossally teased and crimped, long ponytail.

Perhaps it’s her slouchy pose, or the shortened, just-above-the-ankle length of the dress, but this look just missed the mark in the figure-flattery department.

Shailene Woodley In Balmain - MTV Movie Awards 2014Shailene Woodley attended the MTV Movie Awards 2014, hosted today (April 13) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, where she is nominated for Best Kiss for her smooch with Miles Teller in ‘The Spectacular Now.’

Continuing her impressive fashion-girl streak, which really came alive during her ‘Divergent’ promo tour, the actress took an edgier approach in a Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 army-green ensemble featuring a cropped leather tee, knotted high at the waist, and a matching leather, pleated skirt.

The mix of African-safari sensibility and hip-hop flair, prevalent in designer Olivier Rousteing’s collection, was slightly diminished here without the extravagant accessories and embellished waistband seen on the runway.

Still, this little number had plenty of power and panache, especially when paired with black Balmain strappy, statement sandals.

If anything, her gold David Yurman earrings seemed a mere afterthought—a bit refined and quiet for a look such as this. But Shailene knows when enough is enough.

Zendaya Coleman In Emanuel Ungaro - MTV Movie Awards 2014Zendaya Coleman was among the first starlets on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards 2014, as the Disney darling was one of the live pre-show co-hosts for the event today (April 13) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Taking an Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2014 neon yellow, black and chartreuse frock out for a spin, the young actress flaunted her statuesque frame and towering pins.

Slit to there, the dress wowed with its exuberant, stencil rose print and confident colour, to which Zendaya added a rocker-chic touch with a good dose of sparkling bling in her spiky, embellished Christian Louboutin black ankle-strap pumps, long pendant earrings, Swarovski clutch and stacks of assorted John Hardy rings.

With the stylistic boldness and busyness of the look—and the requisite leg jut—I would have preferred her long tresses coaxed into a sleek little updo, which would have also better complemented her thankfully barely-there makeup.
