OMG, guys! It's almost here! The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are THIS SUNDAY, and we couldn't be more excited. Over the course of the past week, we've taken you through some of the biggest fashion trends to flock to the golden popcorn, from mini-dresses to prints and patterns. Our absolute favorite red carpet fad of recent years, though, has to be sparkles, sequins, and shards - the glitzy, embellished frocks that caught, reflected, and refracted light down the step-and-repeat. Still a relatively new trend (our first example is Sarah Jessica Parker's glittery black mini from 2008!), we've seen it explode over the past year with a whopping nine starlettes showing up to the 2011 Movie Awards in shimmery shifts.

There are plenty of stylish starlettes we're anxiously awaiting glimpses of at this year's MTV Movie Awards. From trailblazer Emma Stone to Special Style Correspondent Kat Graham, there's sure to be plenty of sartorial eye candy traipsing down Sunday's red carpet. One little lady we're particularly psyched to see is Miss Emma Watson, who is confirmed to present at the show alongside her The Perks of Being a Wallflower co-stars Ezra Miller and Logan Lerman. This week, Emma tweeted her excitement for the impending award show, revealing that not only has she already found her dress but that it's by a "new designer"! *strokes long, thinking whiskers*

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!

Lea Michele, Jessie J, Lily Collins

Guys, isn't it summertime? *finds nearest window* Yep, it's totally shorts and tank top weather, but despite the rising temperatures, Lea Michele, Jessie J, and Lily Collins kept their looks dark and demure at last night's Glamour Women of the Year Awards. Lea Michele opted for a winter chic off-the-shoulder shimmery midnight blue Zac Posen mermaid-shaped gown with giant Lorraine Schwartz dangling jewels. The Glee star pulled her hair back into a simple ponytail and added tons of drama around her eyes. She swept some bronzer on the apples of her cheeks and chose a nude lip for a clean, slightly-sun-kissed-in-the-dead-of-winter look. Jessie J also went the dark route in a shredded black Julien Macdonald frock with killer gold and black peep-toe booties. She sported kohl-rimmed eyes with a glossy lip and angular brows. She slicked her deep-parted raven locks back into a low side bun and sported no-nonsense nude stiletto nails for a seriously grown-up look.

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.)

Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Cannes.

Kristen Stewart has been killing it on the red carpet recently with some seriously fashion-forward dresses (see: her BCBG harness outfit, Marchesa see-through lace gown, and art deco-inspired Balenciaga minidress), and we’ve been obsessed with all the unexpected awesomeness coming from the Snow White and the Hunstman star. But chalk it up to the long hours, paparazzi overdose, or just plain exhaustion, she’s now returned to her tomboyish roots. Look no further than Cannes Film Festival, where she’s promoting the big screen adaptation of On The Road. Posing next to costar Kirsten Dunst and dressed in brightly printed Balenciaga skinny trousers and a basic white tank, she looks especially laid-back. (Pssst: is it just us, or do these pants remind you of the Balenciaga top she wore earlier this year?) Paired with black pumps, a Rebecca Minkoff blazer, and sunglasses, this is an outfit we can picture K.Stew wearing even after the her PYT duties are over…minus the heels, obviously.

This year has been a big one for the Billboard charts. From Katy Perry's record-breaking fifth single off Teenage Dream to Taylor Swift's reign as "Woman of the Year" at just 22 years old, there's a lot of celebrate, and that is pricelessly what the pop music's finest did at tonight's Billboard Music Awards. The 2012 BBMAs drew out some of the music industry's most stylish celebs, but a few shone brighter than the rest. From Miley Cyrus to The Wanted, these are MTV Style's top looks of the night!


Taylor Swift

Straying from her go-to gold, Taylor Swift looked stunning in a bright red gown by Elie Saab. The symmetrical strappiness of the bodice provides a bit of edge which is balanced by the girlish lace insets. The racy sheerness of the lace is also off-set by the conservative neckline and the floor-length solid skirt. Tay finishes it off with short, dark nails, blunt bangs, and a touch of smokey red-brown eye makeup.

Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa, Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Two of our favorite music industry couples saw things in black and white (literally!), working awesome B&W looks at the Billboard Music Awards tonight in Las Vegas. Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz, along with Amber Rose and fiance Wiz Khalifa, played matchy-matchy with each other in these unexpected hues, proving that opposites really do attract.

Let's be real: Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa have never really obeyed the fashion rules, and this time around the pair upped the ante in equally rockstar-worthy outfits. Rose paired her studded strapless minidress with gold pumps and hoop earrings, adding pops of color with bright yellow nails and cherry lipstick (and hello, body glitter!). We love how Wiz color-coordinated with his girlfriend while still doing his own thing in slim black jeans, white tee, and vest. He topped off the streetwear style with bright red sneakers, hat, and shades. Nicely done!

Cassie at Cannes Film Festival

Leave it to Cassie to convince us we need to add a silk leopard jumpsuit to our wardrobe STAT. The musician-slash-model is already the queen of tricky fashion trends (after all, she still manages to pull off the half-shaved head thing), and this week she worked this amazing Salvatore Ferragamo onepiece to Cannes Film festival. Straight from the designer's Spring/Summer 2012 runway, the exotic orange and purple number is splashed with bold leopard print and adorned with a tie-waist cinch. It should go without saying that this eye-catching outfit is definitely not for the shy- but considering it's Cassie we're talking about, is it really any surprise the singer paired the piece with equally flashy accessories? She's added white Givenchy heels, a Balenciaga carryall bag, and, the piece de resistance, matching shades.

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