Less than a week past the Met Gala, which always provides copy material for months, it’s time for MTV Movie & TV Awards. The 26th edition gala, hosted at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, was the first one to comprehend TV shows as well as Movies (spoiler: Stranger Thing’s Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, is the first winner in the brand new Best Actor in a TV Show’s award). On May 7 the pouring rain has forced an indoor red carpet, but it most surely hasn’t killed no one’s enthusiasm.
We’ve seen a lot of notable faces, from Farrah with her traditional Saree and bleached locks to 13 Reasons Why’s star Katherine Langford rocking a romantic look, and changes have been made in the history of artistic awards with the baptism of new gender neutrals categories, but who made a difference on the red carpet?
Former Hermione has said adieu to nerd attitude and wizardry schools just to throw herself in another castle inhabited by a monster and a whole bunch of magical furniture, but we are certainly not complaining. Watson’s makeup is sophisticated but portable, leaving a sense of cleanness that softens the slicked back chignon. The actress chose a rosé lipstick and a classic winged eyeliner, with just a splash of pink on the cheeks. No heavy contouring for Emma, who looked jaw-dropping beautiful and confident in her own skin.
We all have a thing for freckles and good-girl looks and she, certainly, has shown that you can look both sweet and empowering at the very same time. Emma, winner of the Best Actor in a Movie, is the first to win the new gender-neutral category promoted by MTV, which hopefully would soften the differences of genres that divide the world of movie awards.
Talking about Movies, do any of you actually remember Cara’s long, blonde locks in “Paper Town”? Honestly, they are quite hard to compare with the new space-like look that Delevingne is rocking.
After showing up at the MET Gala with a unique match of silver head and makeup, the model wears a “platinum buzz cut” (thank God Vogue has a word for everything) that leaves all the attention for her stunning makeup. On the back of her neck, Cara shows a beautiful head tattoo that looks like a silvery flower, which matches the garments of her Yves Saint Laurent’s dress.
The eyebrows, always her signature mark, are bold and roughly defined, adding a bit of rock to the model’s blue eyes, while showing oxblood lips and red-winged eyeshadow. Even though Cara certainly looks beautiful, the cut is not only about making the story of this year’s red carpets: in fact, the model is to play the role of Jaden Smith’s (Will Smith’s son) dying girlfriend in Life in a Year, scheduled for 2018.
Blue lipstick is really a thing and we all wish we could put it on flawlessly like Amandla Stenberg.
The actress has channeled the very essence of her name (Amandla means “power” in Zulu) into a single detail of her makeup and, in fact, it came out awesome. Former Hunger Games’ Rue showed up at the Awards with a super minimal makeup – no trace of eyeshadow on her eyelids and almost no color on the beautiful dark skin – but God’s in the details. Pro Tip: we’re not talking about the tiny winged eyeliner or the extra short buzz cut (cut, as well, for a role earlier this year). The only thing you’ll see when you look at Stenberg’s face shall be the lips; electric blue is a very tricky shade to wear but, this time, taking a huge risk paid off well.
But does it work with a Fendi’s striped dress and red open-toe?
Vintage hair, don’t care.
Zendaya showing up at an indoor red carpet with a grown-up look and short raven waves was jaw-dropping. The young actress rocks a hairstyle that winks to Jackie O, showing a sophisticated and mature attitude ages far from her own Met Gala’s self (remember the super curly wig and coral makeup?).
Her cinnamon skin is glowing magically, with generously highlighted cheekbones and a shade of dark brown on her cheeks that dares when the entireness of her look does not – though the lips, nude-but-classy – downplay the importance of the powders and contouring. The girl’s sweet brown eyes are marked with black winged eyeliner, but the real win is the mint green eyeshadow, cool and sweet. As this year’s trend commands, Zendaya too shows thick eyebrows.
Spiderman: Homecoming’s star matched the makeup with a green sheer Zuhair Murad with 3D appliqués.
Who can wear hoops, a whole world of ruffles and lavender satin trousers without looking like a bride-to-be in an episode of Big Fat Gipsy Weddings? Why, a Victoria Angel of course.
26 years old Jourdan Dunn is a vision for sore eyes and is giving us 70s Summer vibes, rocking a whole burgundy look that makes her look casual and beautiful.
The model’s luxurious black hair was pulled back in a ponytail that opens in a waterfall of Afro-curls, which, although being an important part of her look, leaves the face free to be looked at. There is a whole new level of classy in matching a matte mauve lipstick and thick black eyeliner with the lacquered red nails: way to mix rock and elegance. And honestly? We all envy her shiny, smooth skin.
After being officially renewed for a season two, the cast of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why has drown lot of attention to itself during the awards. Katherine Langford, who plays the tormented teenager Hannah Baker, looked beautiful in a long sleeved red dress and showed a bold eye makeup that immediately dramatized her blue eyes. Dark purple and black, the smoky eye really works for her fair complexion, especially when matched with soft-shaded peach lipstick: the effect of the purple on her big eyes is stunning, concentrating every attention on their brightness. Certainly, Katherine knows how to make her best trait stand out.
Her brown hair, which we loved in 13 Reasons Why and was actually a dramatic sign of the downfall of Hannah’s character, was half tied up and free to fall in shiny waves.
