The MTV Movie Awards show is always quite the spectacle, both onstage and on the red carpet, and this year’s show (on June 3) was no different.
Take for instance, Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie in “The Hunger Games.” Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum and a shirtless Joe Manganiello presented Banks, who wore a black jumpsuit, with a golden popcorn trophy for best on-screen transformation. Banks playfully fondled all three men before being carried off by Manganiello, who made a fashion statement in a fireman’s pants and suspenders.
The red carpet was equally hot, with stars opting for short, flirty dresses or pants for the occasion instead of more formal gowns. Charlize Theron dressed in a knee-length red Lanvin with a peplum while her “Snow White and the Huntsman” co-star Kristen Stewart wore a micro-mini by Guishem.
But “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester had the evening’s most confidently relaxed yet polished look in her cream-colored ensemble by Christian Cota.
Meester, who presented the award for best kiss with “That’s My Boy” co-stars Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler, looked chic in her sleeveless jacket, shorts and silk print top. She accessorized with Neil Lane jewelry, a buff-nude envelope-style clutch by Jimmy Choo and buff-nude, suede Brian Atwood heels. Her pulled-back hair and bright poppy lipstick were perfect complements to her casual chic summer attire.
To get Meester’s white-hot summer look, try the Ivory sleeveless blazer from Topshop.com for $90 or the Oversized pocket vest from Gap.com for $49.95. Pair with the white chino shorts from Mango.com for $34.99. For a pop of color, get the warehouse printed top from Asos.com for $69.58. Or for something a little dressier, try the Asos premium silk shirt with florals and studs for $78.28.
Meester’s buff-nude heels and envelope clutch keep things simple and polished. For a similar pair of heels and clutch, try the Aldo Prak shoes in beige from Aldo.com for $69.98 and the Asos envelope clutch for $31.31.
This outfit is full of versatile pieces that can be go-to basics all summer long.
