#TBT: The Most Memorable MTV Movie Awards Outfits

As you can probably imagine, we are pretttty excited to see what everyone will wear to the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday. It is perhaps the most casual awards show out there, which leads to memorable outfits year after year. With a number of our faves like Lupita Nyong’o, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, and Shailene Woodley slated to appear, and Ellie Goulding and Rihanna on tap to perform, we’re basically counting down the nanoseconds until the red carpet.

Because it is Movie Awards weekend, we figured we’d dedicate this week’s #TBT to the 10 most memorable outfits (IMHO) of Movie Awards past. Check them out in all their glory, below.

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards.

Before Ryan Gosling was ~Ryan Gosling~, he was The Dude From The Notebook™. At the 2005 Movie Awards, Ryan decided to make a political statement, wearing a plain white tee that simply had “Darfur” printed across the front. He wore a black blazer with the shirt (hello, it’s a red carpet), but ditched it when he and Rachel McAdams decided to reenact their kiss from The Notebook on stage. Rachel was dressed in bootcut jeans, pointed toe stilettos, and a strapless lace bustier, which is perhaps the most 2005-y outfit to ever exist.

At the 2009 Movie Awards, Bruno (aka Sasha Baron Cohen) descended from the rafters in an angel’s outfit made solely from feathers and leather straps. Besides a loin cloth, he had nothing on below the waist—a fact Eminem knows all too well, after Bruno landed on his face.

Christina Aguilera at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards.

Oh, hello, Christina Aguilera. In 2001, Xtina (she wasn’t even known by that nickname yet, WUT?) took the stage with Mya, Pink, and Lil’ Kim to perform “Lady Marmalade” from Moulin Rouge. All four dressed in thigh-highs, garter belts, and bustier-esque tops, but Christina is the only one who had this hair. And that tiara/forehead decoration.

Will Ferrell at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

At last year’s show, Will Ferrell wore a three-piece suit with money printed all over it. Also, sunglasses inside? Swag on you, Ferrell.

Rihanna at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards.

The last time Rihanna performed at the Movie Awards was in 2007. Seven years ago, you guys. Good Girl Gone Bad had just come out and Rih debuted her short hair. This performance of “Umbrella” was one of the first live performances with the reinvented Rihanna, the @badgal who wore a patent-leather tutu and harness bra.

Justin Timberlake with cornrows. Five men coordinated in denim. It all happened at the 2000 Movie Awards. While the vast majority of *NSync’s style was, um, of its time, this denim look is a lot. I will remember these outfits forever, whether I want to or not.

Macklemore at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

At last year’s show, Macklemore wore a bright blue suit with, NBD, a removable fringed cape. Many attendees would keep it simple for their first Movie Awards, but not Macklemore. I mean, why play it safe when you could wear a cape?

Kristen Stewart at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.

Between 2009 and 2012 Kristen Stewart and the cast of Twilight ruled the Movie Awards. At the 2011 show, at which she three won Golden Popcorn statues, Kristen wore a safety pin-covered Balmain dress. We’re still dreaming about it today.

Katy Perry at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.

Right before summer 2010 became the summer of “California Gurls,” Katy Perry performed the song at the Movie Awards. Katy wore her iconic blue wig (RIP) and a bejeweled romper that only looked like #JORTS and a croptop.

Jim Carrey at the 1999 MTV Movie Awards.

At the 1999 Movie Awards, Jim Carrey accepted his award for The Truman Show in this outfit. No one knows why he decided to wear a macrame shirt, fake beard, and wig, but there he was. Maybe he just liked the feel of cool air on his bare chest?
