As an event planner, I am obviously a huge fan of big, flashy events televised for the entire world to see and admire. This past weekend’s MTV Movie Awards were absolutely no exception. While some are watching for the music performances and others tune in to see who will snag “Best On-Screen Kiss”, I love to see how the evening flows and goes off, seemingly, without a hitch. Oh, and the fashion isn’t too bad, either!
While I always admire the classic stylings Hollywood’s royalty — Reese Witherspoon, Brad Pitt, Victoria Beckham, etc. — I was pleasantly surprised by the younger members of Hollywood’s elite. To name a few, MTV Movie Award winner Emma Watson and performer Selena Gomez wowed the audiences with their demure yet sassy duds. Emma rocked a lovely black and white cut-out frock, while Selena was a sass machine in sequins. Let’s focus on Selena, blazing the way as a young fashion icon.
Sequins and sparkle are components of any awesome party outfit. However, the key is to downplay shoes and accessories as to avoid seeming too busy. You want your extras to add to your outfit, not distract or confuse the viewer. That’s what I love about Selena’s look; she went all out with her flashy minidress but downplayed her jewelry and wore some adorable nude peep toe pumps. And, by keeping her hair swept away from her face, she ensured that all eyes would be on her sequins number by Julien Maconald. Check out my favorite ways to wear party sequins below!
