OMG, guys! It's almost here! The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are THIS SUNDAY, and we couldn't be more excited. Over the course of the past week, we've taken you through some of the biggest fashion trends to flock to the golden popcorn, from mini-dresses to prints and patterns. Our absolute favorite red carpet fad of recent years, though, has to be sparkles, sequins, and shards - the glitzy, embellished frocks that caught, reflected, and refracted light down the step-and-repeat. Still a relatively new trend (our first example is Sarah Jessica Parker's glittery black mini from 2008!), we've seen it explode over the past year with a whopping nine starlettes showing up to the 2011 Movie Awards in shimmery shifts.
Leighton Meester's long-sleeved Balmain beaded dress was one of our favorites from last year for its interesting palette and pattern. It was edgy and fun and really shone in the summer sun. PLUS, it had pockets, which, as we all know, is an automatic win. Kristen Stewart doubled up with two-tone metallics in 2010 - gold jaquard on the top, pewter glitter on the bottom. MTV star Audrina Patridge has also sported sparkles before, trailblazing way back in 2009 with her ombre copper sequins.
Watch the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
