MTV Movie Awards 2014, Ellie Goulding

If you didn't already think Ellie Goulding was an angel, you will after you see what she wore tonight to the MTV Movie Awards. As the stars began to filter down the red carpet during the broadcast's pre-show, the clouds parted and a beautiful vision in all-white appeared in the distance. Was it a goddess? Good guess, but no—it was Ellie. She stunned in a floor-length Armani gown with peekaboo cutouts and adorable (and practical!) pockets. The dress was paired with strappy black Jimmy Choos and flowing blonde hair for days.

MTV Movie Awards 2014, Rihanna, Eminem

Did Eminem and Rihanna nail their live performance of "Monster," or what? The duo sounded amazing (natch) on the MTV Movie Awards stage, but they also totally brought it in the fashion department. TBH, we let out a little collective squeal of delight when we saw that they decided to mimic their musical chemistry with matching satin bomber jackets—just as besties should! The sheen on Eminem's olive number gave it a polished finish, and Rih was his perfect counterpoint in white.

Lorde

There were two remarkable things about Lorde singing with Nirvana at the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night. First of all, the 17-year-old singer was born two years AFTER Kurt Cobain's death (also, literal teen spirit). Secondly, she ditched her typically all-black attire for a curveball colorful ensemble—and it all worked perfectly. Going with her familiar wardrobe of dark, grungy pieces would have been a little bit too on-the-nose for her performance of 1993's "All Apologies." And as for the bubblegum-pink choice, it helped highlight Nirvana's very, very awesome decision to invite only female stars (Joan Jett, St. Vincent, and Kim Gordon) to sing in Cobain's stead. Feminist and unexpected? Yep, sounds like Lorde fit right in with Nirvana's iconic image.

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.

In case you missed the news: Rihanna and Eminem are performing at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Yep, in five days the duo will perform "The Monster" for the first time live ever. (EVER!!!) Sunday will mark the first time they've been reunited on stage in three years, but it definitely won't be the first time Em and Rih have performed together—in 2010 and 2011 they performed "Love the Way You Lie" a handful of times at various tour dates and awards shows, including the 2010 VMAs. *hair flip*

In honor of their performance (and to make the time between now and Sunday as Rihanna and Eminem-filled as possible), we figured we'd take a look back at their past performance style. Leggo!

2010 LAST GIRL ON EARTH TOUR

One of the first times they sang together live was at Rihanna's 2010 Last Girl on Earth tour, where Rih had her short red 'do and wore a one-shoulder jumpsuit made from, essentially, straps. Maybe she'll break it out for the Movie Awards? We wouldn't mind seeing that shoulder cage again, TBH.

2010 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS

Later that summer, they teamed up at the 2010 VMAs, with Em in head-to-toe black with a white tee and Rih in a Madonna "Like A Virgin"-inspired tulle skirt and bra. Rih's red hair was longer, and she accessorized with a Jennifer Behr crystal headwrap. It's one of her best looks, IMHO.

If you're anything like me, your Saturday-night footwear is limited to, like, boots or slippers. Pharrell, it is clear, is not anything like me. I mean, he performed on Saturday Night Live last night in these bad boys. What are they, you ask? Oh, just a pair of customized Swarovski crystal Stan Smith sneakers, NBD. Looks like partnering with Adidas has its perks, eh?

Flanked by a group of string musicians, Skateboard P performed "Marilyn Monroe" wearing the shoes, a black three-stripe jacket, and his green Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat. Will the shoes become a full-time piece of P's look, like the jacket and the hat? Will he be able to get anything he wants customized with crystals from now on? These shoes raise a lot of questions.

In case you missed the big news, we're in the midst of a Lady Gaga Takeover here at MTV, where Gaga is giving us an exclusive look at her Roseland residency, which ends tonight. Sway Calloway not only sat down with Gaga for an interview, but got a tour of her apartment and drank tea with her from a set that Donatella Versace gave her. A perfect day, IMHO.

Terry Richardson has also been hangin' with Gaga as she does the seven final shows at Roseland, and he shared some pictures from backstage, which reveal a number of wardrobe details that we had never seen before—check 'em out!

Earlier this week we took a look at Gaga's rose-themed Roseland wardrobe, but we didn't realize she wears not one, but two purple moto jackets during her performance. While the first one is metallic, this one is bejeweled (and comes with a matching pair of hot pants).

The jacket also has "Gaga" emblazoned across the back, in white jewels. This jacket is for those who forgot who they went to Roseland to see. In case the hot pants, ripped fishnets, and voluminous wig didn't give it away, this jacket definitely will.

Today is a magical day, one that only comes once or twice a year: a Thursday during spring break. Hello, perfect opportunity to #TBT pics from spring breaks past. As you're probably aware, MTV has been hosting spring break events for years, including performances. What you may not know, though, is that during the late '90s and early aughts, there was a show that married our two fave things—fashion and music. Spring-break editions of Fashionably Loud featured models showing off vacay fashions to live performances from the likes of Destiny's Child, Jay Z, Missy Elliott, and more. We figured we'd get in the throwback Thursday game with six of our favorite looks from Fashionably Loud, most of which were totally inappropriate for the beach. Peep 'em all below!

It seems that Fashionably Loud was full of performers wearing things one wouldn't normally pack for a beach vacation. I could be wrong, but I don't think a furry Kangol hat is the first thing anyone would put in their bag for Miami. I'm not Missy Elliott, though, so what do I know?

Beyonce

Finally.

Most of us are far from flawless when we get into bed at night. The makeup comes off, the pajamas go on and face masks and zit cream are in full effect. Needless to say, most of us don't exactly wake up looking flawless either, especially when you're prone to drooling and "stylish sleepwear" equals your least-ratty T-shirt. But when Beyonce claimed in "***Flawless" that she woke up looking like... well, Beyonce, we believed bey-lieved her. And then we all sighed and shrugged and said to ourselves, "Life's just not fair." But there's hope for us yet, fellow Beyhive devotees! Because even though you might not be able to wake up looking like Beyonce, now you can LITERALLY wake up looking flawless. (Or at least wear the word flawless on the back of your nightshirt.)

Lady Gaga

In case you missed the news, Roseland Ballroom in New York City is closing, and the venue landed a pretty big name to shut things down. This local singer named Lady Gaga—you might not have heard of her—is doing the seven final shows at Roseland and her wardrobe, at least two shows in, has been heavy on the roses.

She's giving us updated classic Gaga looks, like a new Botticelli-inspired bikini, which she paired with a rose headband. Roses at Roseland, ya dig?

Gaga kicked off the first show on her birthday, and the outfit she arrived in, naturally, was essentially her birthday suit plus some strategically placed roses. Perhaps in an act of modesty (JK!), Gaga covered her face with a sheer, rose-embellished mask.

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