Red Carpet Roundup: Celebrity Fashion at the MTV Music Awards

Spl99483_009[1]

We're coming in late with this one, folks, but we've had major technical problems (i.e. no internet access) here at fashion Police HQ for a few days now, so we're frantically playing catch-up in the brief moments we manage to get online.

Anyway, our vote for Worst Dressed of this selection would probably go to Kristen Stewart, above. We went backwards and forwards on this one because we know heels aren't the be-all-and-end-all, and sometimes it's nice to wear something a little more comfortable, but ultimately we think Kristen looks like one of those office workers you see walking along in sneakers, with their "proper" shoes in a bag, ready to change into at the office. Still, it's the MTV Awards, not the Oscars, so maybe we should cut her some slack here, whaddya think?

Ashley Tisdale, on the other hand, we like, although if you'd said to us yesterday "super-strappy sandals that wind up the calf", we'd probably have reached for the handcuffs.

Hayden Panettiere.

Ah, OK. We're taking the Worst Dressed war away from Kristen Stewart and giving it to Taraji P. Henson instead. Because Taraji came in costume. At least Kristen didn't come in costume…

    Worst:
    Kristin Stewart – sulky reluctant, and grungy does not equal edgy or fashion OR awards show…mtv movie awards show or not. The shape, I’m ok with. the colors, i’m ok with. the pattern and the neckline make me a little sick. (but not as much as her hair and overly dark make-up)
    Taraji P. Henson – I would say she ties with Kristin for just bad tastes. I mean…the shape of the dress could have been really fun ………seriously? you have to ask WHO is letting these girls out of the house.
    Vanessa Hudgens- All around she is supremely ORANGE. the dress is too shapeless on her, the dark shoes don’t go with the gold accents, and there was SO MUCH SIDE/UNDERBOOB!!! It looks like she just got off the beach, and only had satin to make a beach-wrap out of.
    On the Fence:
    Rumor Willis – cute dress, cute shape, I’m a little worried by the mosaic pattern. Its just not as eye catching as other outfits. But it does look nice. As a dress. maybe she’s not the right shape for it? I’m not sure.
    Sienna Miller- nice concept…but there are lumps showing out of that dress that ought not to be (in my humble opinion). maybe its just the photo but its a little underwhelming. it isn’t bad though.
    Best:
    Ashley Tisdale- it looks fantastic on her, but its borderline too short. But it has a “go-go” look to it that is rather endearing on her.
    Hayden Panettiere -I like Hayden’s dress better than Ashley’s. it just works on her, and it pops. its CUTE, and it makes you say ‘wow i want that!’. the neckline disturbs me a little bit, but hayden pulled it off. it came through, while Taraji’s swept up the dust behind.

    Hudgens! What are you wearing? You are so pretty and young, but here, you look like you are 40!!!

    I think everyone looks a bit icky, with the (unusually enough) exception of Sienna.
    And It’s not just the sneakers for Stewart, that dress is not good. The pattern is gross, the neckline is just as bad, the shape is boring, and she looks like she just stumbled out of bed and threw it all on.
    (I think we have the same shoes though. I don’t wear them on the red carpet, however!

    I like Chucks, I think she looks cool in them. Not for a posh award show, but it’s the MTV awards, so I think it fits. Very nice outfit on Ashley, but Vanessa looks totally shapeless in this thing.

    I won`t say anything about Kristen because she usually looks gloomy and she didn`t display any fashion sense lately. Rumber Willis fails because of the face, doesn`t matter what she`s wearing.
    But Vanessa Hudgens, she usually dresses nice. What`s with that tablecloth? Did Nicole Ritchie borrow her one of the pregnancy gowns?
    Best dressed, i`d say Ashley, nice legs, the shoes are interesting, simple dress and i like how the belt looks on it.

    Enough with the bitchiness, please. This is a site where people can discuss fashion. I don’t tolerate snide comments about people’s faces or figures, so if you can’t discuss the clothes without being nasty about the people themselves, your comments will be deleted. This goes for anyone else thinking it’s OK to call people ugly etc.

    I’ve read somewhere that Kristen Stewart had a twisted ankle from previous filming days. And that’s why she went with those sneakers. Not sure though…

    Apparently Kristen had hurt her ankle – that’s why she wore flat shoes. I’ve looked at some other pictures of her, she looked a bit uncomfortable – almost like she didn’t really want to be there.

    Eh, I actually like Kstews outfit. It suits her, and the converse are cute – too much eyeliner though. Taraji P. Hensons outfit appeals to me – the cut is good on her, and the design and sitcky out bit at the back are pretty interesting. I like her hair and shoes too. Don’t care much for Sienna Millers outfit, it looks kind of plain and cheap and too clingy, kind of lackluster. I don’t like Vanessa Hudgens outfit either – I don’t get why she keeps wearing such long, loose dresses, she looks better in short, cute ones instead. This one is way too baggy and shapeless, and the colour doesnt suit her. The way she is posing and her shoes seem like she should be wearing something briefer. Ahsley Tisdale looks cool, kind of futuristic somehow lol. Hayden Pannetiere and Rumer Willis both look great too.

    I read that Kristen had hurt her ankle too – and even if she hadn’t, I think it’s ok to go casual to the MTV movie awards although I’m not a huge fan of the dress.
    Best dressed for me is Ashley, I wouldn’t have liked the idea of those shoes either, but on they look fantastic!

    Honestly, my fav is Kristen. I love the hair, I would absolutely love to be able to do and pull off her makeup, and I adore the “fancy” dress + casual shoes combo. The only thing i don’t like very much is the pattern, but red suits her and the interesting neckline “saves” the dress.
    Ashley Tisdale looks elegant, despite her dress being a “bit” short, and although i normally hate gladiator-like shoes, she can really pull those off, I like them on her.
    As for Vanessa Hudgens… I don’t get it. There are 50-something women that dress as if they’re 18, and vice-versa. Has the world gone mad? I’m not saying that she should only wear tight, showy things, but that.. curtain doesn’t really hang well.
    And Rumer Willis… poor Rumer, she would have done so much better if she had let her hair down! It looks like she was in a hurry and just put it up in a bun. Show off your beautiful red hair, “ginger”!

    I dunno, I rather like Kristen’s outfit. It looks very rockeresque… something I would think should be appropriate at an MTV event 🙂

    I love Chucks, but I have to admit that they arent the most confortable shoes out there.
    There are many cute and confortable flats and sandals if she had a hurt ankle.

    Hayden and Ashley look amazing!
    Rummer’s dress is truly eye-catching, but Vanessa’s really doesn’t help her nice figure out!

    Hurt ankle could have meant flats, not necessarily sneakers. Too mismatched for me.

    Sienna’s is cute, but not very flattering – especially around the tummy area.
    Ashley seems to be the only one that can rock shoes like that.
    Kristen – I agree with Amber. Even if you did injure yourself, there are other, more fashionable shoes that are both flat and comfortable.
    Hayden – cute as a button! Vanessa – not a good look. You should show off your good body, not hide it in a giant orange mass.
    Taraji… if you cut off the extra, poofy odd fabric at the back and took off the odd pattern and stuck to a simple colour, maybe it would have worked. Love the shoes, though.
    Rumer – I hate it. Sorry, but I don’t like anything: the hair colour/style and the dress colour doesn’t compliment her skin and nor does the pattern. I like the shoes though.

    I like Kristen Stewarts dress and especially the shoes. I am twelve years old though. Lily Allen does that though, and I love her style!

    Worst: Vanessa Hudgens.
    Orange, shapeless, just plain gross. It looks like she borrowed her obese Mom’s slip from the 80s and tried to make it fit using a brooch. It just looks terrible.
    I think Kristen Stewart looks cute, a little Avril, maybe but at least she tried something interesting. Plus the dress is a little edgy and I like the overall look, maybe not for an awards show but it is just MTV…
    I’m always accepting of trying something different like TPJ did. It might not have worked but its either a love it or hate it thing and I think it’s pretty cute, and at least it has shape.

    I think Ashley Tisdale looks great!
    Yeah, I think it’s hard for celbrities to pull of that grunge/just-rolled-out-of-bed-look. I’m like “Hello! We know you planned your outfit and had hair and makeup people.”. If I saw K.Stewarts look on the street I would think it was faboo, but when you know there is a but of money and time behind that look it almost seems like trying TOO hard.

    Maybe if Kristen Stewart had worn a plainer dress (i.e. without the in-your-face snake-skin pattern) then her outfit would have been fine.
    I like Ashley Tisdale’s dress, although I agree that it would have been better if it had been a little longer.

    I kinda like the way Kristen looks. I mean, she looks like a teenager, which, after all, she IS.

    You know, when I first saw pictures of Taraji P. Henson’s dress, I liked it. From the front, it’s whimsical, and a little short. This is the first time I’ve seen it in profile, and now I see how terrible it is. The shape is just so awkward.
    Ashley Tisdale and Hayden Panettiere’s outfits are the only ones I really like here. Sienna Miller is wandering over that fine line between too ’80s and too boring, Kristen Stewart is trying too hard, Vanessa Hudgens kind of looks like she’s playing dress-up in her mom’s clothing, and Rumer Willis just looks uncomfortable. I don’t think the cut of that dress suits her at all.
    It’s the MTV Music Awards, though. I’m sure none of these are the worst-dressed to walk that carpet.

    I have to say I agree! I hate that look to no end. I remember at my Homecoming dance people wore sneakers with their dresses….Hideous! I have to say though, every rule has it’s exeption! At the end of the Twilight movie, Kristen was wearing sneakers with her dress…And I have to say it didn’t look half bad!

    Kristen does look pretty bad. But the chucks are sort of her thing now, because she wore them with her dress in the final scenes of Twilight. If she had a better dress, I would like it.
    Ashley’s is okay, I guess, but the sandals are too much.
    I like Hayden the best.
    Sienna’s is cute, but its simple and she could definitely go for something more flattering.
    Taraji would actually look cute from the front, but the profile is just plain ugly.
    Vanessa just looks hideous. I don’t know what she was thinking.
    Rumer’s dress has a cute pattern, but it’s way too low-cut for her.

    vanessa looks incredibly stupid wearing a Tang wrapper for a dress. that pose isn’t fooling anyone you silly girl.
    hansen: a nice attempt at looking couture, but overall she looks ancient and can-can-y. are those ppl on the front of her dress? ugh.
    sienna is sienna, that dress is nothing special, looks like a balmain knockoff from her collection with her sister. i expect better from a chronic husband stealer.
    willis needs to learn how to pose so she doesn’t look like a confused girl at homecoming, otherwise, could rock that dress.
    hayden and tisdale look the best: hayden’s good at looking smart/sexy/age appropriate and i would kind of kill for tisdale’s shoes. dress is on the short side but who cares? if you’re young, flaunt it for god’s sake!
    as for the accused kristen stewart, regardless of the chucks wearing violation, i can’t get over the fact that she is a talentless ho excuse for an actress to even care. i’m amazed she’s even getting away with it too. now that’s a crime.

    Oh gee I must say I really hate Vanessa Hudgens’ dress. Its sheen and color make me feel like I could drag a butter knife along it and put it on my toast. It also has no shape and that hem plus those shoes make her look short-legged.
    she gets my vote for worst! <3
