MTV Movie Awards 2012: The 10 Best-Dressed Stars (PHOTOS)

"I want my MTV" was an anthem for teens in the '80s, and while the music network is now more "Jersey Shore" than "Julie Brown," they still very much embody the young American spirit. The annual movie awards show is a chance to see celebrities out in their finery, but because of the lively nature of the event, the atmosphere and fashion is much more playful. Stars take chances that they wouldn't dare at more buttoned-up awards ceremonies, and we are only happy to sit back and enjoy.

This year short and sweet was the name of the game as everyone from Charlize Theron to Emma Stone chose flirty knee-length dresses. But it was Vanilla Ice in his acid-washed jeans who reminded us that the '90s weren't that long ago. Check out our picks for the best-dressed, and tell us which look you like most. For a laugh, head over to our worst-dressed gallery. We promise, it won't disappoint.
