Breaking news, y’all! MTV Style is proud to announce that Teen Wolf star Holland Roden will host the 2012 Video Music Awards Red Carpet Report for MTV.com on Sept. 6! You may know her as the red-haired beauty Lydia Martin on the supernatural drama, but in real life this actress has a serious soft-spot for all-things style. From awards shows to fashion week, Holland has been bringing her retro waves and signature red pout to the masses and can’t WAIT to share her love of fashion with the world. “It’s been a blast to do these previous events just as part of the red carpet as a guest, and now that I’m hosting for the Red Carpet Report, I have no words. Just a lot of looks!” Holland even admits that while fashion is already a hobby of hers, she’s been studying extra hard to prepare for the big day. “I just love to converse about the new trends that are popping up on the catwalk, and it’s just been so surreal that I’m genuinely a part of this role and no longer just a fan looking in.”
The Dallas-born actress has also appeared on Lost, Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Community, Weeds, and Criminal Minds since beginning her career in 2007. When she wasn’t working the small screen, Holland attended UCLA and received her degree in Women’s Studies. (She used to major in molecular biology!) During her free time, she likes to kick back and listen to music including everything from Ingrid Michaelson to Cat Stevens to Mumford And Sons.
Holland follows in the footsteps of former hosts Coco Rocha, Christian Siriano, Adrienne Bailon, Fonzworth Bentley, and, most recently, Kreayshawn. Will she be taking any tips from last year’s Red Carpet host? You betcha! “I love that Kreayshawn had fun and she spoke to all of the people on the red carpet like they were her friend, and that’s something I would try to emulate.” Awwww. Be sure to tune in Sept. 6 to watch Holland talk all-things fashion!
