Hearing the words “MTV” and “awards show” can mean two things; we’re filled with dread think about the next star that will wear a belt as a top, or a dragon, or a raw meat costume on the red carpet while twerking with a foam finger. Or, if you’re more adventurous than most of us and not prone to cringing, you’re just plain excited to see who can create the next big scandal.
Anything goes at the MTV award ceremonies. You just have to accept that nothing is guaranteed at these events. Except for bucket loads of style inspiration on show. While some of the stars use the MTV red carpet to get a little wild and wacky and promote ‘their brand’, I’ve managed to find three more eh, wearable looks that you can recreate on a budget using some of our favourite skirts, dresses and sandals. Here are my faves.
Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow proved that she is also red carpet perfect at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. Brittany wore a red midi, similar to this Definitions pencil skirt with a pop of pink on top. We say; perfect wedding guest outfit with separates are becoming increasingly popular.
For something more detailed on top, try this pale pink beaded top to match the berry tone of the skirt. Keep your look simple and understated like Brittany’s by keeping your accessories sleek and not too busy. These Shoe Box sandals and this Carvela clutch are perfect for finishing off the look.
Does J.Lo ever get it wrong when it comes to red carpet style? It would seem not. Sometimes, Jenny looks like it was more likely she came from a diamond factory than “from the block”, but this time, she kept it simple and relatively bling-free. To copy her look, start with this Definitions Blazer and Waist Belt. If you want to be as daring as the real J Lo, go braless and just add this lace pencil skirt.
In the event that you don’t have the body of a 45-year old (but somehow ageless) Hollywood star, then get a similar effect with a blazer over this black dress with pleather skirt. You still have a daring neckline, but you’re just a little more… tucked in.
Add some height to your legs with these So Fabulous sandals. Go gold with accessories: these 9 Carat gold earrings and Clutch Bag will do the trick, plus add some of that J.Lo glow with this Bourjois bronzer.
Shailene Woodley, AKA”The girl who made us cry like we had never cried before when watching The Fault in Our Stars movie” totally delivered on the MTV Movie red carpet. Her quirky mismatched trousers-top pairing was fresh and trendy and something we all want to try for ourselves.
With these South Tall Jersey Trousers and Lipsy Bardot Stripe Top you too can be ‘Divergent’. Add these edgy Joe Browns ankle boots with a pop of Rimmel lipstick and you’ve got a cool look that’s perfect for attending everything from a gig to a summer BBQ.
