May 16’s MTV Movie & Television Awards saw a spectacular variety of ensembles on the red carpet, from dressy to daring, regal to racy. Stars like Elizabeth Olsen and Anthony Mackie attended the Los Angeles event dressed to the nines, as the 29th edition of the awards show kicked off with outfit after outfit gracing the carpet, culminating in a star-studded show with looks to kill.

With all the madness and dozens of outfits on the red carpet, we’ve got a style recap to keep you up to date on what your faves were wearing. Read on to see highlights of the MTV Movie & Television Awards red carpet style.

Chase Stokes

The Outer Banks star hit the red carpet last night in a bold crimson Fendi suit paired with an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watch, bold and fresh in the eye-catching look. A good thing, too—in line with the romantic look and sheer top, Stokes took home a Best Kiss award with his costar, Madelyn Cline.

Yara Shahidi

Yara Shahidi dressed for success in this bold, warm-toned look from her Yara x Adidas Originals collection. Paired with a dainty yellow bustier, the rich prints on the elevated tracksuit are playfully fun yet sophisticated, masculine and feminine cuts creating the perfect combination for MTV.

In a crisp yet casual Celine suit keeping it refined and youthful, Netflix star Jacob Elordi graced the red carpet in a put-together, neutral outfit. The key is in the details with this one: brown leather loafers, a thin gold chain with rings to match, and a shirt draped just right under a neatly tailored jacket.

Yvonne Orji

The Insecure actress clearly understood the assignment with this funky, bright Mimi Plange dress paired with David Yurman jewelry. With tassels for days, the fringe look is at once chic and carefree, gracefully hinting at the summertime.

Elizabeth Olsen

Marvel’s sweetheart swapped her classic, vintage WandaVision looks for something more contemporary and effeminate for the MTV Movie & Television Awards, but we aren’t complaining. In a black Miu Miu mini dress with pearl details and Sophie Webster satin pumps, Olsen’s look is dainty and refined, the very image of sophistication.

Antonia Gentry

MTV is all about youth culture and playful whimsicality, and Antonia Gentry absolutely dressed for the occasion. In a trendy white monochrome Valentino ensemble, Gentry came in style with the contemporary look, sleek and simple.

Victoria Pedretti

Taylour Paige

Dressed in Gucci, Taylour Paige was evoking the 2000s and cheeky lingerie couture with her red carpet look. The sparkling cropped cardigan and shiny metallic shoes make for the perfect campy complements to the chic, lacy black dress, bold and edgy while retaining youthful grace and energy.

Henry Golding

Dressed in Dior, Henry Golding was keeping it simple and refined on the red carpet. Tailored black pants and a luxuriously shiny jacket made for a sleek and groomed look, effortlessly handsome in its raw cleanness.

Madison Bailey

Wearing Versace from head to toe, Madison Bailey was equal parts bold and bright on the red carpet. The exaggerated multi-patterned high-low skirt contrasted with a simple black cardigan showed some skin while keeping it classy, and the embellished Versace bra only added to the fun look.

Kathryn Hahn

It was Kathryn all along! The WandaVision star swapped her Marvel style for a chic, classy black outfit with flared trousers, pairing it with statement gold Misho earrings and bold red lips for a look that is timeless and iconic.

Anthony Mackie

Clearly, effortless grace and poise was on the memo for Marvel stars at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Anthony Mackie dressed for success in Paul Smith, pairing a contemporary pinstripe suit with casual blue and red sneakers.

Addison Rae

In a barely-there Christopher Esber dress, Addison Rae turned heads on the red carpet. The TikTok star showed some torso with a thin bandeau and silver belly chain, contrasting the bare look with a black blazer and maxi skirt.
