Sure, the Cannes Film Festival offered almost two weeks full of Hollywood glitz with a dash of South of France glamour and the Met Gala went high fashion camp. But honestly, the MTV Movie and TV Award ceremony earns top-billing in our book because it’s allowed — no, it’s encouraged — for your favorite celebrities to go all out and express their unique selves through their red carpet fashion. And they go all out.

 

From big screen icons to reality show stars you’re not-so-secretly obsessed with, these famous personalities channeled the creative spirit of cinema and television through their own sultry, bold, confident, unpredictable and often risk-taking looks. We can’t think of a mindset that fits more perfectly with Galia Lahav House of Couture’s empowering and performance-inspired “Make a Scene” collection and Gala’s fantastical, whimsical and free-spirited Alice in Wonderland theme.

 

Whether it’s the MTV Awards, red carpet or your wedding day, there are no rules or boundaries in expressing your personality and style in your own way — whether you want to explore a past decade, as if you’re jumping into a beloved costume-y period piece, or seize your major diva moment in the most show-stopping look ever. (Too bad Lady Gaga didn’t make the awards because it would have been the perfect starring moment for the House of Couture Gaga gown.)

 

Need more inspiration for your big day? Here are 12 ways to go down a rabbit hole — see what we did there? — of trends, embellishments, silhouettes and details to express yourself in your own singular sartorial way for your wedding.

Audrey-Plaza

Pay homage to cinematic fashion legends with a penchant for rocking menswear-inspired silhouettes, namely, Diane Keaton (and her celebrated character Annie Hall) and trouser-icon Katharine Hepburn. Tailored details — like a posh bow at the neck and pleated, flowing cuffs — bring a rakish elegance to a glimmering sequin-covered dress.

Lana-Condor

Short wedding dresses are so versatile for a more relaxed courthouse, garden ceremony or the reception (and definitely the after-party). Consider adding a fun ‘80s vibe with exaggerated puff shoulders and pretty floral accents. It really is the wedding dress you can wear again — like maybe for your own best kiss moment?

Brie-Larson

Celebrate your power and strength, Captain Marvel-style, on your big day with a stunning jumpsuit instead of a dress. (FYI: The jumpsuit is the new supersuit.) Remember that your superpowers lie in the details: daring asymmetry, a shoulder-baring silhouette and ethereal, otherworldly sparkle will help you, figuratively, soar sky high up into the stars. (And look amazing on the dance floor.)

Storm-reid

Star in your own lush period epic — like a Merchant Ivory romance or, perhaps, the evergreen Alice in Wonderland — with a dreamy mix of Edwardian and Victorian details. It’s all about the dramatic puff shoulders and billowing lace cuffs, waist-cinching corsetry and a mix of captivating textures: beaded lace appliqué, velvet piping and sublime layers of tulle.

Maude-Apatow

Sultry meets sweet with intricate, vintage-inspired embroidery on a strapless corset-topped and blush-toned A-line gown with soft tulle layers. A delicate ribbon bow at the waist and hidden pockets add a girlish — and functional — touch to the irresistibly charming dress.

Tiffany-Haddish
Tiffany Haddish

Go for the gold — or silver, in the case of the actual dress — on your wedding day by reigning supreme this jaw-dropping stunner of a bridal gown. The award-winning aspects of this lauded performance: a sultry shoulder- and décolleté-baring cut, compelling detail at the neckline, infinite amounts of brilliant silver sparkle and miles and miles of leg. May we present the trophy, please.

Bring the drama, but with your dress and not your friends or your bridal party — like what could happen on a popular reality show set in a Hollywood hot spot, just saying. Eighties-style power shoulders and conversation-starting ornamentation, like beaded lace (or a flurry of feathers), infuse a demure long sleeve silhouette with brash and fearless attitude.

Vanessa-Marano

Go for sweet and spicy by countering romantic embroidered lace, sweet floral motifs, soft blush undertones and a demure high-neck silhouette with saucy sequins, peekaboo illusion panels and flash of leg.

Haley-Lu-Richardson

Like in the silent movies kicking off Hollywood’s Golden Age, make a statement without saying a word on your big day. The trick: incorporating ‘20s-inspired fringe and deco-style beading that will dazzle down the wedding aisle — and under the lights on the dance floor.

Sandra Bullock

Yes, you can infuse Sandra Bullock’s leading lady style into your wedding day. Just translate her strapless sequinned top into a 3D-embroidered and asymmetrically ruffled corset draped over flowing layers of tulle. This award-winning look just might earn you a standing ovation once you finish your vows.

Sydney Sweeney

Serve up some ingenue allure with a streamlined sheath silhouette, but express your confidence with bold elements: strong bare shoulders, lots of leg and resplendent silver sparkle. You’re a legend in the making.

2019 MTV Movie And TV Awards - Arrivals
Raquel Leviss

Earn rave reviews for — and make sure your photographer captures all the close-up shots of — the elaborate details on your spotlight-worthy wedding gown: guipure lace illusion sleeves, a sublime body-celebrating fit, peekaboo panels in all the right places and museum-worthy 3D appliqués on the bodice.
