Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.
I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.
The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.
The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.
I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.
She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal AzrouÃ«l Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.
I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.
Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.
This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.
She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.
Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.
The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.
I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.
Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.
It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.
I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.
Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.
The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.
I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.
Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.
She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.
The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.
Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.
The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.
A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.
The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.
She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.
Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.
The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.
Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Ã˜verland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.
We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.
Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.
1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.
She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.
Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Ã˜verland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.
Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.
Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.
I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.Â I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.
Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.
She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.
