Fun. opened the 2012 MTV Movie Awards with this year's unofficial anthem "We Are Young", and that is exactly how the fashion on the red carpet felt - fun and young! What a refreshing break from the extravagance of the MET gala and the Cannes Festival. Don't worry, there were still plenty of peplums to fill the couture void in our hearts, but there was also a lot of leg room from the short hemlines to kick ass (well demonstrated by Charlize Theron's Best Fight simulation with Michael Fassbender). We at NET A LA MODE made a list of the ten best dressed celebrities at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
#10 Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae rocked the red carpet with a Chanel ankle-length pantsuit with an untucked white button-down shirt, a wide-brimmed hat and a pair of black loafers - a relaxed twist to her usual tuxedo look.
#9 Victoria Justice
The 19 year-old actress looked very pretty in an Erin Fetherston one-shoulder white and sunny yellow gown, cinched at the waist with a large black belt.
#8 Christina Ricci
Christina Ricci sported an intriguing custom-made Christian Siriano for Timex gown. The strapless sweetheart neckline dress was adorned with Timex watches and beaded embroidery. It was only a matter of time for this dress to turn heads!
#7 Leighton Meester
This Gossip Girl actress brought summer to the red carpet in her Christian Cota white sleeveless jacket with matching pleated shorts and a planktonic-prints silk top from the 2012 Spring Collection. This is certainly a look worth stealing for those promenades on the beaches of Nice.
#6 Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks wore a daring Elie Saab one-piece black jumpsuit with lace-like panels from the 2012 Fall Collection. Who else could pull off such avant-garde look!
#5 Emma Watson
Emma Watson pulled off the sportwear trend in a Brood grey racerback top and a skirt adorned with a futuristic peplum from the 2012 Fall Collection. Don't you love it when Emma Watson tries out edgier looks!?
#4 Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel channeled the 70s with this Chanel textured empire-waist white dress with voluminous long sleeves from the 2012 Spring Collection. She completed the look with a pair of color-blocking Barabara Bui "Biker" sandals.
#3 Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale looked stunning in a light pink three-quarter length sleeve Christian Dior dress, a very elegant summer look.
#2 Charlize Theron
This "Snow White and the Huntsman" actress wore a gorgeous strapless red Lanvin peplum dress. Charlize Theron looked smoking hot!
#1 Emma Stone
Emma Stone rocked an edgy black and ivory Martin Grant peplum dress from the 2012 Fall Collection. We are in love with the architectural bodice.
Emma Stone might be the fashion winner and the winner of the Trailblazer Award but Elizabeth Banks definitely came out on top. She received her Golden Popcorn from the cast of the upcoming male strippers movie, Magic Mike, and was whisked away by a shirtless Joe Manganiello.
We bet you that at that moment, teenagers were sighing around the world and probably pulling a one-person make-out session à la Kristen Stewart in their bedroom.
