Last night at the MTV Movie Awards, Rita Ora was responsible for probably our #1 fave show moment. Here's a hint: muscles. Here's another hint: Zac Efron. OK, yes, it was when Rita ripped Zac's shirt off. Snap buttons are the best invention, right? Before she was inches away from Zac's bare bod, Rita had to get ready for the show, and we snagged some behind-the-scenes photos. Just think, as she was getting her makeup done, she had no idea she'd soon be lauded as a hero. What a world.
In case you somehow missed Ellie Goulding looking like a total goddess both on stage and off last night at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, you should peep her red-carpet steez and her equally gorgeous performance look. We were lucky enough to get behind-the-scenes photos of her getting ready process and, as expected, she looks just as calm, collected, and glamorous backstage. Check out our exclusive photos, including one that shows how she gets her perfect 'do!

Like most people, before Ellie puts her gown on, she lounges seemingly nude on a fur-lined blanket. Do you relax in clothing or on a non-furry blanket? You're doing it wrong. Sorry.
Whoa. We were expecting some memorable looks from the 2014 MTV Movie Awards—there are always a few—but what we weren't expecting was for all our faves to look so ***flawless. Lots of colors, dresses with pockets, and robes (JK, there was only one of those) that we luhhhve. Below are the ladies we thought totally nailed it—check 'em out!

We've long praised Lupita Nyong'o for her love of color and wearing every shade of the rainbow during awards season, so we were thrilled when we saw that tonight she was wearing all of them, at the same time. It's official: Lupita can wear any and all colors and look amazing. We bow down.

Are you ready? We're ready. The day we've all been waiting for is finally hurr—it's Movie Awards day! While Conan O'Brien is strapping on his finest pair of jeggings, the other attendees are taking to the carpet, talking to MTV.com Red Carpet Report correspondent Rachel Antonoff, and spilling the deets on what they're wearing. Earlier this week we took a look back at memorable outfits—the only question is, what will we remember from 2014?

Oh hi, puppy Alien.

Not that you needed another reason to watch the MTV Movie Awards today, but, um, there are going to be puppies on the red carpet. In costumes. ICYMI, Tyler Posey, one of tonight's pre-show hosts, was on the red carpet yesterday hanging out with the fancy pups, and you can see them for yourself via our our behind-the-scenes cameras on All Access Live). Seriously, could anything be better? Designer/genius/wardrobe specialist Heather Zweigel made costumes for the li'l guys—Ron Burgundy's suit from Anchorman 2, Bilbo's outfit from The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Richie DiMaso's '70s suit vest from American Hustle, Alien's Hawaiian shirt and cornrows from Spring Breakers, and so many more. If you liked seeing Bradley Cooper in a deep-V, imagine how you'll feel seeing a puppy in one. *heart eyes emoji x's 100*
Oh hi, puppy Superman.

We had a chance to chat with Heather about designing for dogs, her favorite costume, and how she reacted when she found out she'd be designing for tiny dog bodies (spoiler alert: She was excited). Click below the jump for her answers, behind-the-scenes deets, and more pictures of puppy movie costumes!
When we heard Conan O'Brien was hosting this year's MTV Movie Awards, we were like, "Awesome. We are totally #TeamCoco." Then we were like, "Wait. 'Coco' is Conan's nickname AND the name of a famous fashion designer. Could we, as a fashion blog, get any luckier? We are so #blessed." JK, we didn't say any of those things aloud (we don't speak in hashtags, for one), but that was definitely our sentiment, and so was born our quiz. Over the course of their careers, both Conan O'Brien and Coco Chanel have spoken generally about style and fashion, so we figured we'd see how easy it would be to tell which Coco said what.
We present to you, in bold, seven quotations. Below each of them is a set of pictures of Conan and Coco Chanel. All you have to do is click on who you think said the quote, and you'll see whether or not your response is correct. Good luck!
"People always say it’s tough to be a model—no! Turning a big crank is tough."
"It is always better to be slightly underdressed."
Who is this guy?
In case you were worried that Drake's comedic chops were a one-time fluke when he hosted Saturday Night Live, I guess you've never seen Degrassi. JK, I guess you haven't yet watched Drake on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where he took to the streets in a disguise to see what people really think about Drake.
While I'm not fully convinced he needed a disguise—I mean, none of these people recognized his voice, which is pretty distinct—he wore one that consisted of a dark chestnut version of Justin Bieber's original floppy hair and a fluffy beard. For extra diversion he added some glasses and a multi-colored striped shirt, which totally transformed him from Drake to an i-banker with bad eyesight. Or one who pretends as much so he can wear glasses with thick frames.
If you've ever wanted an idea of what it's like to go shopping with Fifth Harmony, you're in luck. While last summer we followed the ladies shopping for themselves before their first VMAs, they've recently shared their shopping skills with a fan, and we were there to see it all go down. We also sat down with the ladies to talk about their style icons, and they're more disparate than you might think!
As you can probably imagine, we are pretttty excited to see what everyone will wear to the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday. It is perhaps the most casual awards show out there, which leads to memorable outfits year after year. With a number of our faves like Lupita Nyong'o, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, and Shailene Woodley slated to appear, and Ellie Goulding and Rihanna on tap to perform, we're basically counting down the nanoseconds until the red carpet.
Because it is Movie Awards weekend, we figured we'd dedicate this week's #TBT to the 10 most memorable outfits (IMHO) of Movie Awards past. Check them out in all their glory, below.

Before Ryan Gosling was ~Ryan Gosling~, he was The Dude From The Notebook™. At the 2005 Movie Awards, Ryan decided to make a political statement, wearing a plain white tee that simply had "Darfur" printed across the front. He wore a black blazer with the shirt (hello, it's a red carpet), but ditched it when he and Rachel McAdams decided to reenact their kiss from The Notebook on stage. Rachel was dressed in bootcut jeans, pointed toe stilettos, and a strapless lace bustier, which is perhaps the most 2005-y outfit to ever exist.
