Movie Awards 2011: From Emma to Kristen, Our Top 10 Looks Of The Night

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards is behind us but all that means is that’s it’s time to saunter down (very recent) memory lane to muse and mull over our favorite looks of the night. Sure Twilight swept the awards and dominated the Red Carpet but our picks for the favorite were a little more diverse. Running the gamut from “Easy A”’s Emma Stone to Chanel muse Blake Lively, the ensembles boasted trends that were varied and inspired so with no further ado, here are our favorites.

LEIGHTON MEESTER:

Leighton Meester’s art-deco-gone-disco-ball not only flaunted the mirrored shard trend but a second trend of a shortshort cocktail length juxtaposed by long sleeves. Plus, a deep, dark tan and lighter hair set off the dramatic reflections exquisitely.

REESE WITHERSPOON:

Oh man, if Reese Witherspoon didn’t wail on R. Pattz for his flubbed lines in the show (good natured ribbing of course. Ever the consummate professional, Reese brings flawless effortlessness in a juuuuust about knee-length, ultra fitted, Zac Posen leopard-print aqua and brown dress. The subtle sweetheart bodice adds a nuanced air while her tousled, beach-wavy blonde hair hits all the notes of a calculated informality. We see you, Reese!

EMMA WATSON:

We were on pins and needles (frantically chatting with the Marchesa twitter feed) about whether or not Emma would wear their fitted, stark white, mini-sheath—with the fringe and the beads and the YUM—and we’re thrilled that she did. The Potter star was lovely, gracious, and appeared to GLIDE on her reflective silver, sky-high Brian Atwood heels. Heavenly. Naturally.

BLAKE LIVELY:

Blake Lively is a sleek aerodynamic nymph in a gorgeous cut-out Michael Kors dress, which further proves that she is probably most at home being some sort of beautiful mer-creature. And to further prove the fact that she is actually a WOMAN times 10, she’s got that hair pulled into a streamlined ponytail, which makes us feel like she probably got right out of the pool after “kissing her skin” with sun and just came on over to the awards.

HAILEE STEINFELD:

The thing about this Louis Vuitton tuxedo that we’ve rhapsodized enthusiastically about SEVERAL times now is that the fit was just perfect. Now, we realize the ’p’ word is bandied around so frequently as to be egregiously diluted but the cut was insane. The sequin lapel and tuxedo stripe on the pant showed a fantastically whimsical element but the slightly flared trouser leg added just the sleekest hint of ’70s that was reminiscent of the BEST Stella McCartney pant circa early Chloe in a way that made us feel wildly nostalgic and happy. Fash geek-fest over.

MILA KUNIS:

So Mila Kunis didn’t walk the Red Carpet and for that we have a single-teared frowny face sticker added to her permanent file. But it’s scratch-n-stiff and smells like lilacs so it’s still a happy ending! The Justin Timberlake molesting ’Black Swan’ star kept it simple and complemented a deep, black top with a silver and gold HEAVILY textured metallic, body-con mini. Balmain and therefore IMPOSSIBLE to go wrong.

ELLE FANNING:

There are all of these girls on the red carpet at the Awards, and while most of them are bright young things, Miss Elle Fanning is so young, so tall, and clearly has a much-talented older sib to possibly over-shadow her. But instead, she goes for the bloomers (with blooms! Blooming bloomers!). Sure, it’s a youthful romper and all, but the she drops the bomb on us that it is Dolce and Gabbana.

KRISTEN STEWART:

Kristen Stewart’s hardware-laden Balmain strapless dress was PUHLENTY impressive from a distance as we were deafened by the screaming Twilight fans but as she approached we realized that the deep red number wasn’t beaded as we’d earlier thought but pierced throughout and riddled with hundreds of safety pins. Bad. Ass. Plus, think of the countless wardrobe malfunctions she could ameliorate with the handy fastenings! Yes. I just said, “ameliorate” it is one million o’clock here.

HOLLAND RODEN:

Who is this lovely statuette of a woman that has shown up on our screen, looking a bit like an idol/goddess? Grab a pen all: This is Teen Wolf’s Holland Roden. She’s prepped for her first red carpet (and judging by the Amy Adams’-like nature of her get-up, definitely not her last) in a killer Jad Ghandour gown that has a massive train, but is still fitting her form and showing off her killer gams. And lastly, the one-shouldered geometry of this dress is just slaying us. Forget wolves vs. vampires: We’re Team Holland.

EMMA STONE:

The temptation to flub a vitamin C opening joke in this write up is an enticing one but we’re not sure it conveys the proper sentiment which is that we ADORED Emma Stone’s playful foray into prettily, citrussy color palettes. From her nails to her clutch to the foundation layer of her Bottega Veneta dress, we loved the completeness of her convictions.
