Seen on the Scene: MTV Movie Awards 2

Taraji P. Henson wore this black and white mini-dress to the MTV Movie Awards.

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008

I like this dress.  It’s part French maid’s dress, part Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 Chinese porcelain inspired dress. I would have preferred seeing a different hairstyle though and some more oomph in the accessory department but a nice look from Taraji.

Stephanie Pratt, sister/sister-in-law to Speidi, wore this volumous black dress with snake skin belt strappy heels and a curlicue necklace.

I love the dress (J’adore volume and drama), the belt and the shoes but I don’t love the necklace.  Diamonds, animal skin, bondage-chic…there’s just too much going on here.  Lose th diamonds add a cuff or some other kind of wrist wear and we have a winner.

Rumer Willis wore this patchwork, geometric one shoulder tube dress.

This is a good look coming from Rumer and I think this dress looks amazing on her.

Vanessa Hudgens wore this peach Max Azria dress with Jimmy Choo shoes.

There is a time and a place for everything and I don’t exactly think that the MTV Movie Awards was the place for an ensemble like this.  I like it but it’s still a little blah for me.  She may have redeemed herself if she went with a printed boho-chic dress.

Miley Cyrus wore this nude cowl neck dress with ruffles down the back.

This would have been a nice choice for someone much older then Miley’s years but on her it just really ages her. Unspectacular.

Finally we have Kristen Bell in a black silk bustier dress with studded sandals.

I’m going to have to give Kristen the award for Best Dressed of the Evening for this perfect LBD.  Her styling – hair, accessories, shoes, make-up – complement the dress instead of competing with it.  Well done!
