Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen – MTV Movie Awards 2014

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.

Chrissy Teigen In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Chrissy Teigen In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - MTV Movie Awards 2014

Chrissy Teigen took a gorgeous turn on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards 2014 held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday (April 13).

The model and wife of singer John Legend wore short and sweet Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2014 Couture cocktail dress paired with black Christian Louboutin pumps.

This dress is the perfect flirty number for the event and to show off Chrissy’s enviable assets. Her legs rival the runway model’s–an impressive feat.

Chrissy’s gorgeous ombre hair is styled to perfection and giving everyone major hair envy, and her simple makeup and classic red manicure are red carpet beauty done right.

The only jewels this look needed were her stunning wedding rings.

Bravo, Chrissy.

Holland Roden In Salvatore Ferragamo – MTV Movie Awards 2014

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.

Ellie Goulding In Emporio Armani – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding In Giorgio Armani - MTV Movie Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding looked sexy and chic on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards 2014 held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday (April 13).

The British singer wore a crisp, white Emporio Armani dress with black peep-toe Jimmy Choos.

Ellie always adds her own brand of style to the red carpet (which doesn’t always pay off for her), but tonight I’m loving her look.

The detailing on the dress–from the cut-outs to the pockets to the A-line skirt–are fashion-forward and fun, but still classy.

Her side-swept tousled hair, shiny pink lips and funky silver bracelet all add additional Ellie charm.

I feel like there are better shoe options out there, but over all, this is a solid win for the singer in my book.

Do you agree?

Iggy Azalea In John Galliano – MTV Movie Awards 2014

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.
