The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are right around the corner (this Sunday, June 3!). Along with hilarious hijinks, blockbuster parodies, and the congregation of Hollywood's hottest stars, it also means a veritable PARADE of exemplary summer style will soon hit the MTV red carpet. Our freshly announced Special Style Correspondent Kat Graham will be on-hand to cover the breaking fashion news of who is wearing what as it unfolds, but judging from the trends of Movie Awards past, it can't hurt for us to do a bit of pre-carpet predicting!

HAHAHAHHAHA. Ugh. You know that thing where you hear your own voice and it’s octaves deeper and scads more alien-sounding than you suspected even with the allotted margin of error because you know that it’s a thing? Seeing yourself in video is that times a million. So gross! Whose bloated, animatronic, pie-face is this exactly? Also, who decided to go out the night before and eat all the sodium in the world and quaff entirely too much carbonated alcohol despite knowing they had on-camera duties the morning after? GAH. So yeah, ignore the looming, foreboding forehead but do listen to the words because we are talking MTV Movie Awards red carpet fashion.

We admit: we're notoriously bad at keeping secrets, so, needless to say the last few weeks have been REALLY hard. We knew it would be worth the wait, though. Ahem. Drumroll, please... Kat Graham will be reporting as Special Style Correspondent on the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet Pre-Show AND the MTV Style Red Carpet Report this weekend! Amazing, right?! As Special Style Correspondent of the pre-show, which you can catch this Sunday at 8:00 PM ET/PT on MTV, she'll be joining Josh Horowitz, Jim Cantiello and Sway Calloway from MTV News and talk to everyone from Chloe Moretz to Leighton Meester to Andy Samberg (yep, really!) on the red carpet. She told us, “I'm looking forward to being a part of bringing the show to the fun level it always arrives at. We're going to be bringing fashion/fierce/pop to a show honoring amazing talent, and showing how we do it the MTV way!" And, yes, there will be even MORE Kat Graham/fashion amazingness right here on MTV Style, so be sure check back in for the full red carpet report.

We all know and love the Swiss-born American actress from her breakout role as Bonnie Bennett in The CW's The Vampire Diaries, but acting is only the tip of the talent iceberg for this impressive multi-tasker. At only 22 she's already reached triple threat status, with a successful music career (including the highly addictive track "Put Your Graffiti On Me") and dance background...not to mention a killer fashion sense. After all, how many girls do you know who can pull off the sleek hi-rise ponytail and minidress as well as Miss Graham? That's a big fat zero, if you ask us. And now she's ready to put her personal style to good use this Sunday.

Movie Awards Mini Dresses Trend

DUDES. The MTV Movie Awards are almost here, and you know what that means—tons of red carpet ensembles for us to fuh-reak out over! We can only imagine what our fashion-y faves will wear on the big day (June 3!), but thanks to trends that have shown up on the Movie Awards red carpet time and time again, we have some serious sartorial guesses to make before Sunday rolls around. Why? Because 1.) It's fun and 2.) We will find any excuse to be right about something. JK! (Sorta.) First off, we need to talk about those forever-on-trend mini dresses. It seems like celebs want to start off their summer wardrobe with a bang, and lots of ladies opt for a shorter-than-short frock paired with sky-high heels and effortless hair. And when we say lots of ladies, we mean lots of ladies. From Kristen Stewart's safety pin Balmain dress last year to Victoria Beckham's zebra body-con frock (and hot pink bra) in 2007, there certainly hasn't been a shortage (heh) of super short mini dresses. In fact, we have 40+ examples (!!!) of these cropped frocks all bundled up in a little nice package for y'all. (Psst, you're welcome.)

Emma Stone, red

File this one under: TOTALLY AWESOME BREAKING NEWS. Even though the MTV Movie Awards don't happen until next Sunday, Emma Stone has already scored a coveted golden popcorn. How, you might ask? The actress has won MTV's first-ever 'Trailblazer' award, an inaugural honor given to the star with the most diverse and genre-hopping performances. Thanks to roles in The House Bunny, Easy A, Crazy Stupid Love, and the upcoming blockbuster The Amazing Spiderman, the 23-year-old has been all over the movie map (and nabbed a couple of golden popcorns along the way, including last year's Best Comedic Performance win). Since she's already being celebrated for her versatile acting chops, we figured it was about time she gets a shoutout for her equally trailblazing style, as well. Although her fashion sense has evolved in a huge way since her Superbad days, Stone knows which colors, cuts, and trends work best for her- and she's stuck with 'em over the years.

Look, we don't usually do this because we're way into sampling all of the delicious sparkly wonders the week has to offer, but this edition of the Shoe Update is all MTV Movie Awards. While we're well aware that this cozies close to the slimy world of shameless self-promotion, we just can't help it if the ladies TURNED IT OUT at our event. Sorry we're not sorry. The pics don't lie! We sifted through dozens of pretty platforms, stilettos, wedges (side note: OMNOMNOM), but three ladies stood heels and ankles above the rest (LOLOLOL SHOE PUNZ FTW!): Amanda Bynes, Elle Fanning, and Nicki Minaj.

You've now washed out the hair spray, wiped off the makeup, and sent the dress to the dry cleaners, but still one relic from the MTV Movie Awards night will keep on keepin' on for at least a few more days: the manicure (YUSSS!). The ladies of Sunday night's Movie Awards had their nail game turned ON for summer and really showed us how it's DONE. Bold, bright, and eye-catching are key to having red carpet-worthy nails, 'specially when the heat has risen.

Whether you're into going full-on, glammed-out rhinestone almond nails like pint-size rap princess Lil Mama or favor a subtler take à la Lily Collins, metallics are a BIG WIN for the summer months. Not only as a practical measure (umm, duh, if you're not reflecting the light, you're absorbing it), but a quick swipe of your metal of choice is a great way to add a healthy dose of flash to your outfit without layering on heavy bulky hardware.

Unofficial announcement made on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards last night: the summer of femme has begun. Sure, we've spotted some pretty graphic pops of color recently, but leaving your vampy red lipstick and black liquid liner in March gives way to a clean, fresh vibe that is ready to pull up a beach towel, slather on some sunblock, and seriously apply some (waterproof) mascara.

Sea-salt-kissed hair stormed the carpet, and while Blake Lively and Mila Kunis opted for sleek and straight, the majority of the ladies opted for texture, waves, and very loose and effortless curls. With a rich, summery blonde, Katie Cassidy reminds us that "day after" hair is always better, especially with those just-right roots peaking out. While she has a healthy glow and a bit of gold shadow to warm her up, she let's her eyes peak out and draw us in, choosing a nice nude lip. White dress, blonde hair, pale lipstick could be a wash out, but the hair is textured and a healthy dose of mascara keep us captivated in the eye region.

Taking a very similar approach is one of our favorite looks of the night—the perfectly assembled Selena Gomez, who used the wavy hair/statement eyes combo, but whose dark color adds a bit o'drama. Yet the girl whose coif we must covet this summer is our very own Leighton Meester, who rocks the ombre trend with her thick-as-a-rope locks which have more volume than control. With a healthy dose of blush and simple lined eyes, she lets her lips go low-key—which leaves the realm of flirty and goes full throttle into the delightfully coy. (To add this sort of rough texture to your hair, using a sea salt spray-in after your hair is styled does the trick.)

We could go for the layup and mention that Bryce Dallas Howard's pregnancy has given her a natural glow, and sure, that might be true, but her complexion has always been peaches and cream. The red hair has always been her thing (except when Kirsten went red and Bryce went blonde for Spiderman...), and because it is so striking, she lets it fall loosely around her shoulders and relies on her GORGEOUS green eyes. She may not even be wearing lipstick; all BDH requires is a light gloss. But the girl who did au natural with such joie de vivre is newcomer Lily Collins. Her eyebrows deserve a golden popcorn just for existing (Like Hailee's too!), but instead of doing an ornate updo, she just lets loose and allows her rich tendrils to shine. Just a little liner and a nude lip, and she bypasses the inner-outer eyeliner overdose that simply won't die. Once again the nude lip and flowing hair keeps us focused in all the lovely places.

Clutches, rings, and cuffs ruled the night and the multiple metallic surfaces sent our magpie-like covetous brains spinning. And scheming. From cunning little hard-case purses to mercury-shiny asymmetrical cuffs to bracelets that appeared to be made from boiled and spun sugar, there wasn't an accessory that we didn't mentally audition with our wardrobe at home. Let's take a closer look and really allow the envy to take hold and darken our hearts before dropping serious paper on some of these choice, outfit-making accent pieces.

While we personally would've loved a simple tank paired with Nicki's amazing, ultra-'80s, black-and-gold-hardware ensemble, we're uncompromised in our love and admiration of all that gleaming metal. From the bright buckles of her waistcoat to the enormous gauntlet of bracelets, we loved the deep, inverted, dramatic V of her gold Necklace by TomTom Jewelry that's held aloft seemingly by her impressive décolletage and set off by the badassery of her matching gold Crystal Chunk Knucklebuster Ring by Luv AJ.

Girls are fantastic and they smell lovely and whatnot, but when a supremely well-dressed, handsome dude takes the stage, there's nothing like a good long ogle. As soon as we see Blake Lively or Emma Stone hit the carpet we are sent fluttering about looking for dress names or designers or what shoes we would wear when we steal her style, but guys like Ryan Reynolds just freeze us, point blank, like our brains have been removed from our heads and set in jars on our bedside tables. Here are the seven dudes that kept us transfixed—with both their dead-on clothing choices and the amazing genetic eye candy with which they've blessed us.

Andrew Garfield's buttons are really what we are here to talk about. The Social Network star has been charming us left and right with his sweet geeky looks and affable, self-deprecating charm, but then he steps out adorned with these perfectly tarnished little cherries on top of an already adorable maritime ensemble and kills us. Oh, AND yes, he wore navy blue and black and successfully because THIS is how your dress pants should fit.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
