2017 MTV MOVIE & TV AWARDS

 

When I first decided I was going to blog about the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards show, which aired on 5/7/17, I had every intention of basically giving a play-by-play/recap of the night.  However, after about 30 minutes of watching it, I realized a couple of things.

One, I am way too old for this.  I felt like a Grandma – I had to constantly google who everyone was!  And secondly, I realized that there really is no point to recap the entire night.  If you didn’t watch it, the winners are all over social media.

Instead, I decided to focus on the clothing the celebrities chose to wear.  Their fashion choices are always my favorite part of every award show, and this year was no different.  (Even if I didn’t know who everyone was!)

I also started thinking about some of the past MTV Movie Awards (this year was the first year that they incorporated TV into it as well), and it made me realize how much has changed over the years.  So I’m also going to do a little throwback to the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, and you can see for yourself just how much has truly changed in the past 10 years.

 

FAVORITES:

Shay Mitchell (Actress, Pretty Little Liars)

Shay (or Slay) Mitch always looks so fierce.  She’s gorgeous, bold, and adventurous with her choices.  It’s always exciting to see what she will wear.

sLAY

Amber Rose (Model)

I truly thought Amber looked absolutely stunning.  Red is totally her color.

Jess Conte (YouTube Star)

Classy, simple and elegant. Love the pale pink for Spring.  Gorgeous.

Jess Conte

Hailee Steinfeld (Actress, The Edge of Seventeen)

This is an edgy look, yet still so pretty and innocent.  She looks beautiful.

Hailee

Kat Graham (Actress, The Vampire Diaries)

I’m such a fan of Kat Graham – she’s just so unbelievably gorgeous, she always looks on point.  I’m all about the All Black Everything look, and this outfit is no different.

Kat

Zendaya (Actress/Singer)

This is the second time in a week that Zendaya has absolutely slayed on the red carpet. She looked fabulous last week at the Met Gala, and here she is again, looking beautiful in green.

Zen

Cara Delevingne (Model/Actress)

Cara looks so bad ass and fierce.  Love it.

Cara

FASHION FAILS

Debby Ryan (Actress)

I feel so bad putting Debby Ryan in this category, because I think she is so cute, but I just don’t understand her outfit in the slightest!  She does still look pretty, though.

Deb

Holland Roden (Actress, Teen Wolf)

Another one I feel bad about putting in this category.  Maybe she was going for a Teen Wolf theme?  I just don’t know.

Holl

Shannon Purser (Actress, Stranger Things)

I love Barb, I hate putting her in this category, too!  I’m also wondering if she was going along with a Stranger Things theme – it’s totally 70’s, so maybe.

Barb

Farrah Abrahams (Reality Star, Teen Mom)

Finally, one that I feel no remorse whatsoever for!  I really don’t like Farrah in general, but that’s not why she’s a fashion fail.  I’m so confused why she thought a Bollywood look would be appropriate for this awards show?  I’m also confused as to why she’s on the red carpet at all, honestly.

& HERE’S A BLAST FROM THE PAST….

2007 MTV MOVIE AWARDS:

Lauren Conrad (Back when The Hills was still on air.)

LC

Lauren’s co-stars (and her ex-best friend)- Heidi Montague & her boyfriend Spencer Pratt. (They weren’t married yet!)

Spencer & Heidi.jpg

Paris Hilton, when she was still relevant, and everything was “hot”.

Paris HIlton

Jessica Alba was ranked No 1 in FHM’s Sexiest Girls of 2007 Poll.  (She’s still just as gorgeous, 10 years later, FYI.)

Alba

Zac Efron – he looks like such a baby!

Zac Efron

Vanessa Hudgens, who was dating Zac at the time.

Victoria Beckham, looking wild in zebra print.

& Amy Winehouse – RIP Angel.

MET GALA 2017

Last night as I was lazily scrolling through my Twitter news feed while in bed, I found myself coming across numerous posts and pictures of celebrities from the Met Gala.  Of course, I’ve heard of the Met Gala; I remember pictures from previous years.  But I  had no idea what the Met Gala actually was.  So I decided to do some research, and I was very intrigued.

 

WHAT IS THE MET GALA?

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute in New York City.  It serves as an opening celebration for the Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.  It is one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the biggest fundraising nights in the city.  ($12 Million was raised in 2014!)  Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, oversees the benefit committee and guest list.  It’s extremely exclusive; the annual guest list inclues only 650-700 people.

Each year, the Met Gala has a “theme”.  The theme sets the tone for the exhibit, and the guests are encouraged to dress accordingly.  This years theme was Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Garcons: Art of the In-Between.  I’m no fashion guru, and I had no idea what that meant.  So I did some research.

MET GALA 2017: THEME

Rei Kawakubo is a Japanese Fashion Designer, and the founder of Commes des Garcons.  Commes de Garcons is French for “Like some boys.”  As of this May, Rei Kawakubo is the subject of one of the exhibitions of the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Fashion Exhibits in NYC.  (Once I looked up this fashion, many wardrobe choices that some celebrities had chosen made so much more sense to me.)

Here are some of Rei Kawakubo’s looks:

These looks are….interesting?  To say the least.  Once I understood this theme, however, I was super interested in what each celebrity wore.  Of course, some didn’t go with the theme at all, but still looked gorgeous.  Others decided to be bold and went with the theme – some of them really slayed, and others, not so much.  Let’s see….

 

BEST DRESSED:

Rihanna

Rihanna never fails us fashion wise.  Clearly she stuck with the theme, and she absolutely killed it.  Queen.

 

RiMet

 

Emma Roberts

Simple, yet elegant and posh.  So gorgeous.

 

EmMET

Selena Gomez

Simple, pretty, theme inspired.  She’s glowing.

SelMET

Lily Rose Depp

That bright pink is perfect – she is stunning.

LilDepMet

Zendaya

I’m pretty sure this look speaks for itself.  Amazing.

ZenMet

Kim Kardashian

Some call this look plain, I think she looks magnificent.  Not everyone looks fabulous in white, but Kim looks absolutely flawless.

KimMET

Hailey Baldwin

She looks like a Princess.  Beautiful.

HaiMet

Ashley Graham

I love Ashley Graham.  She followed the theme, looks gorgeous, and is defying all stereotypes for what is considered sexy.  Beautiful and Inspiring.

AshMET

Nick Jonas

I clearly discriminated against males in this category, but I really didn’t find any guy besides Nick Jonas who I thought deserved to be mentioned. He’s looking good!

HOTTEST COUPLES:

Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

Swoon…..

RYBMet

Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen

Maybe I’m biased because Tom is the GOAT, but they look pretty damn good.

TomGisMet.jpg

Mary Kate & Ashley Olson

Maybe not a couple, but such an iconic duo.  I love their boho chic look.

MKAMET.jpg

Of course, there were many looks that I found to be truly bizarre, which is bound to happen at any event.  Some looks that I “didn’t care for” (that’s really putting it mildly)….

FASHION FAILS

Katy Perry

I’m not crazy about Katy Perry in general, but when she looks good I will 100 % give her credit.  I hate everything about this look. I just feel like she tries so hard to be unique.  Give it a rest.

KatMET

Madonna

There are no words for this.  WHY?

MadMET

 

Celine Dion

I’m just genuinely confused.

CelMet

Kendall Jenner

So, when I saw the front of Kendall’s dress, she was originally a fav.  I thought she looked so pretty.  Then I saw the back.  And it ruined everything. So trashy.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry is so gorgeous – she could pull off practically any look.  Why she chose this, though, is beyond me.

HalMet

Bella Hadid

I’m typically a fan of Bella’s fashion.  I’m just really not feeling the cat suit.  She’s stunning, she could have chosen a much prettier, and classier, look.

BelMet

Jaden Smith

I should have put Jaden as my first Fashion Fail.  Seriously, WHY ARE YOU CARRYING AROUND YOUR CHOPPED OFF DREADS!? Beyond creepy.

JadeMet

That’s it for now! Until next year….
