Everything That Wouldn’t Fit Into 140 Characters: MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet Photos and Commentary

As I rock my Hollywould flats (I throw in the towel by the time Friday rolls around) on this cold, rainy, non-June-esque day in New York, the irony that I’m continuing to judge people on the Interwebs based on their legs does not escape me. Missed the Twitter highlights? Click here. But I had to share with you the photos Gillette Venus so generously provided me from the event last Sunday along with a bit more commentary. Call it Everything That Wouldn’t Fit Into 140 Characters.

Here she is, dolls, the Best Legs Award runner up Lauren Conrad (only because I’ve never seen better legs on a dude–fauxmosexual or otherwise–than those of Bruno, hence his Best Legs Award title)! I didn’t catch Whitney Port (her legs are always killer!) on the red carpet, but Audrina Patridge looked radiant in person in her pink besequined frock.

Here she is again, with Miley Cyrus. More on Miley later.

Kristen Stewart, WHY? Why can’t you REPRESENT? This event very well could have been called the Twilight Awards, and here you are, in a dress you paired with Converse. Even Kurt Cobain, KING of Converse, would be like… really?

Here’s a pic Kristen touching her hair, for a change.

Cameron Diaz, I’m into your outfit. I always feel as if you need 33% more eyeliner, however. Your skinny jeans are totes cute.

Here she is, flanked by the adorbs Sofia Vasselieva and Abigail Breslin.

I thought Sandra Bullock looked great, and it wasn’t even because I was totally dazzled by her sexy arm candy. Her tights on a warm spring day denied her inclusion in my Twitter commentary, but other than that, I liked her dress, hair and makeup.

Ryan Reynolds. I KNOW you’re married to ScarJo, but you’re officially the best looking dude I’ve EVER seen in real life next to Brody Jenner. You should seriously send (in your best cursive) a letter to the genetic lottery and THANK them for the gorgeosity that is you. Even in this picture, you’re not actually walking the red carpet in LA with Sandra Bullock. You’re flatteringly backlit in the French Riviera or something. And Enigma is playing in the background.

Leighton Meester‘s hair and quasi-tush-showing dress disappointed me, but her makeup was smokily glambitious and her stems were scandalously fab.

Another pic of Leighton!

Zac Efron was one of the NICEST celebs on the red carpet. He, along with Tyrese and Peter Facinelli not only acknowledged our press group located at the end of a very long red carpet with minimal aggression on our part, they even paid mind to the screaming fans who ripped down the shrubbery BEHIND us to catch a glimpse. Anywho, Zac is very cute in person. I wish he’d cut his hair a bit, though.

LeAnn Rimes can barely fight the moonlight in THIS gown. I lurve its mermaid styling at the bottom. Alas, in it, she’s not gammunicating, but it’s a great choice for a long dress. Her smoky eye was the perfect compliment, but her hair leaves something to be desired.

Okay. I was sort of into Miley Cyrus (I may or may not have her Hannah Montana album from a couple of years ago on my iPod. Track 7, The Other Side of Me is especially catchy). But her shout-out/poor way of flirting with Andy Samberg when she presented an awards onstage (though doll, I can’t blame you. He’s on my Top Five list), reminded me of that epic scene in Dirty Dancing. You know, when Baby first dances with Johnny and then does that awkward floppy dance by herself when he leaves her quite abruptly as the song Love Man ends. REMEMBER? It’s awkwardness mixed with a dash of confidence sprinkled over a souffle of reality. Anywho, the color of her Moschino Cheap & Chic washed her out a bit, but the cut was great for her. The nude shoe was a fantastic choice for elongating her stems.

Vanessa Hudgens‘ dress looks sort of like a nightgown, but I’m into its creamsicle hue. Her natural waves and pretty Neutrogena makeup killed it on the red carpet.

I mean, I know dudes the world over are DYING over Megan Fox and I can appreciate that she’s a very pretty girl. But on a scale of Maxim girl to Butt Slut (a term I picked up from Fashion Binge’s Tamar), she falls squarely into the latter’s territory. Right? There’s just something inheritantly trashtastic about her. Even the dude next to me covering the red carpet told me his crush on her evaporated when he saw her in person.

I mean… I can’t. I also wasn’t a fan of her slicked back bad-interpretation-of-a-mermaid hair. I just felt this ‘do didn’t DO much with her assets.

Hayden Panettiere “stem”-ulated the crowd in this black mini. I like the dress’s tutu-esque cut and thought it was an age-appropriate choice. I COVET those simple black peeptoes.

Thanks again to Gillette Venus for this truly fantastical opportunity!

    Hey Amber,
    I am so glad you and SpoiledPretty cover Twilight stuff because that’s all I’ve been Googling the past few weeks. Anyway, I just wanted to know if you could try and figure out who the makeup artist for Kristen’s MTV look was and what makeup products she used. While I do agree that the acting was a bit fake and awkward at times in the movie, I can’t deny that she looks gorgeous everywhere she goes. Anyway, thanks ahead of time! BTW, the New Moon movie looks like it’s done in such a different light this time, the darker, dreary, blue overcast is seemingly gone (from the preview trailer at least). Do you think Van Phue used the same makeup on this movie like in the last?!

    Thanks, Nancy! It’s not the way the dress (Leighton’s) LOOKS, though. Just to be clear. If you see a pic of it from the back, it’s see-through on the sides of the BUTT. Do a google search, you’ll see. xo, doll!

    I have to disagree with you RE Leighton Meister…I love her dress. Cami booties rocked but what’s with the pants (Cami) and tights(Bullock)??? Hayden’s outfit is cute though Miley’s would have been nicer in a different color. You should also pop up your outfit too, celeb in the making 😉
    Hope you get to cover another event, I really loved your coverage – honest and fun. Noice work!

    Ugh… AGREED on Kristen. And, dare I saw it??? RPatt fits the role by appearance better than anyone I could have imagined, but I find his acting abilities hard to watch. So the 2 of them together just never has worked well for me. But of course I still own the movie and while I’m not clamoring for November’s release of New Moon, I’ll still be at the theater with bells on! Did you SEE Jacob in the trailer?! By the books, I’m team Edward, but I have a feeling that with the movies, I may be a convert!!

    Kaylyn, ME TOO! I HEART Twilight, but Kristen Stewart drives me insane. She was mediocre in the movie. Jenni, Hayden looked GORGE. Sydne, I hope to come back soon to Lala land! I’ll keep you posted on any possible visits 🙂
