Movie Awards: A Fashion Homage To ‘Easy A’

Only three short weeks until the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, and MTV Style has all the fash-obsessed coverage of this year’s nominees that you could ever ask for! Earlier this month, we brought you the most-memorable style moments of the Best Female and Male performance nominees. Today, we have a Polyvore set inspired by the onscreen style of the triple-nominated movie, Easy A!

So when I was in high school, teachers gave out summer reading assignments that were due the moment the bell rang on the very first day of the new school year. AND I had to walk uphill both ways in the snow to get to and from school. JK, I didn’t walk, I drove or took the bus. And there wasn’t any snow. But there WERE a few hills, and there were DEFINITELY summer reading assignments. Before my junior year, my class was assigned Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. Considered to be the greatest work of Hawthorne’s writing career, this 19th century romantic novel is set in colonial Boston and tells the story of Hester Prynne, a young woman who is ostracized by her community for her illicit actions. SAUCY, right?! Easy A is decidedly NOT the film version of The Scarlet Letter, so I wouldn’t watch it if you’re looking to get out of reading the book (and shame on you for even contemplating such blasphemy! School is cool, guys!! *pushes up glasses*). But it’s preeeetty close in a contemporary super-loose adaptation kinda way à la 10 Things I Hate About You.

Emma Stone is totally funny and smart and cute as Olive Penderghast, a teenager who starts a series of white lies about her weekend escapades in an attempt to up her social cred around her high school. The rumors fly, and Olive is labeled the school-skank. Instead of withering in persecution, Olive embraces her new identity, starts dressing more provocatively, and uses her new reputation to help some of her fellow dude classmates whose popularity could use a boost. The above Polyvore set is an homage to Olive’s more scandalous wardrobe centered around a black All Saints corset and a pair of black J Brand ’912’ skinny jeans and an Alexander Wang multistrap shoulder bag for Olive to tote her books around—she is at school after all. (Side note: OK, so there are probably 0.000001 percent of girls toting Alexander Wang satchels to school, but like, realistic schmealistic, this satchel is FABULOUS, so there). The outfit is finished off with Jeffrey Campbell platform wedge heels, black Wayfarer cat-eye shades (a bad-girl staple), pearl earrings, a slick of bright red lipstick, and a scarlet letter. Easy A is nominated for a whopping THREE Movie Awards this year: Best Female Performance, Best Comedic Performance, and Best Line From A Movie. The Movie Awards are only a few weeks away, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite performances here!
