Hosted by comedian Tiffany Haddish, the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards premiered on June 18, 2018. MTV handed out the coveted Golden Popcorn trophies two days earlier on Saturday, June 16 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California for standout performances from both the television and cinematic worlds. And although no best dressed awards were given, the red carpet certainly saw some major fashion wins.
Since the awards ceremony was pre-taped, fans got a sneak-peek at their favorite stars’ red carpet fashions thanks to the power of the internet — and boy, oh boy, did these stars come to slay! From Zendaya’s candy-inspired ensemble, to Tessa Thompson’s dramatic Rosie Assoulin gown, to Betty Gilpin and Yara Shahidi’s statement-making pantsuits, these television and movie stars proved the know how to dress for an occasion. Here’s an inside look at some of the show’s best looks, straight from the MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet.
Cristin Milioti stuns in silver
Fresh off the heels of her completely terrifying (though, at times, quite funny) Black Mirror debut, Cristin Milioti stunned as she walked the red carpet and posed for photographers at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on June 16, 2018. The star, who you know from her memorable performances in How I Met Your Mother, Fargo, and The Wolf of Wall Street, was nominated for MTV’s “Most Frightened Performance” award — and boy, was she ever deserving of the golden popcorn. Seriously, if you haven’t watched “USS Callister” — the first episode of Black Mirror’s fourth season — do yourself a favor and carve out some Netflix time. Milioti’s performance is simply unforgettable — so it was only fitting that her red carpet look be equally as memorable.
The star stunned in a tea-length, long-sleeved metallic number, complete with a high neckline and bold, black stripes for days. Milioti topped off her futuristic look with neon green eyeliner and geometric drop earrings, looking every bit the part of a sci-fi badass.
Betty Gilpin looks killer in a chic pantsuit
If binge-watching the Netflix original series, GLOW, has taught me anything, it is this — Betty Gilpin could totally kick my butt if she wanted to. In the series (whose second season premieres Friday, June 29), Gilpin plays Debbie Eagan — a soap opera star turned stay-at-home mom who throws herself into the ring to deal with the pain of a cheating spouse and a best friend’s betrayal. And while Gilpin’s GLOW storyline might be fictional, I’m pretty sure she’s every bit as tough as her on-screen character — and the suit she wore to the MTV Movie & TV Awards only further proves my hypothesis.
Gilpin walked the red carpet at the Barker Hangar sporting a sultry two-piece suit straight out of every woman’s pantsuit dreams. Designed by Zac Posen, the all-black, chic ensemble was tailored to absolute perfection, featuring a super sexy plunging neckline that added just the right amount of feminine flair.
Tiffany Haddish serves Cinderella vibes
All hail the queen, Tiffany Haddish!
2017 was the year of Haddish, no doubt about it. Though she’s been in the comedy game for years, the hilarious star’s breakout role came in the form of the 2017 hit movie, Girls Trip. Haddish received loads of critical acclaim for her role in the flick, and stole the hearts of millions of fans across the globe with her quick wit, contagious laugh, and down-to-earth personality. Haddish was undoubtedly one of the most beloved and talked-about stars of the past year, so it only made sense that MTV give her the reigns to one of the entertainment world’s biggest nights.
As always, Haddish looked every bit the part of an actual queen as she floated down the red carpet. Stunning the crowd in a metallic, floor-length gown with a thigh-high slit and a princess-like tulle train, the host and nominee flashed her famous, thousand-watt grin as she posed for adoring fans and photographers.
Katherine Langford is delightfully dramatic in this black ensemble
There are definitely more than 13 reasons why Katherine Langford was one of the MTV Movie & TV Awards’ best dressed stars. The smokey eye, the black veil bow, the stunning Giorgio Armani velvety gown — talk about a dramatic entrance!
Of course, a dramatic entrance is quite fitting for this gal. After all, she is the star of the hit Netflix drama, 13 Reasons Why. Nominated for “Best Performance in a Show” for her role as troubled teen Hannah Baker, Langford sported a small number 13 on her wrist in honor of the show that gave the star her breakout role. Langford took to Instagram to post a picture of the small, numeric detail, thanking both MTV and Giorgio Armani in her caption. “I’m so glad to have met so many of you and to have been on this crazy journey together,” Langford wrote. “Here’s to what lies ahead.”
