Last night, millions tuned in to watch Tinsel Town’s finest congregate at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, which were held at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California. While the show isn’t quite the same extravaganza as its more hyped cousin, the VMAs, the event still managed to satiate the world’s appetite for all things celebrity-endorsed.

Some highlights from the function include an exclusive new Suicide Squad trailer, a Movie of the Year accolade for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a 25th anniversary tribute rap performed by hosts Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart (and company), but let’s take a moment to focus on something we at Highsnobiety know a thing or two about: fashion.

Though I wouldn’t consider the swag at this year’s Movie Awards to be the most eye-grabbing in the show’s 24-year history, the show’s attendees nonetheless made an effort to put on a sartorial spectacle.

Heres the good, the bad and the downright fugly of what your favorite stars wore at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.

Fleeky Fresh

Cara Delvingne red-carpet flexing not just with her eyebrows, but with this fresh off-the-runway Balmain FW16 getup.

Fashion’s gruesome twosome Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid setting the #slay bar above and beyond.

Still not over this slay. #kendalljenner #gigihadid #mtvmovieawards

Halle Berry testing the limits of aging in this lacey Noam Hanoch dress.

Think style runs in the family?

Not everyone can pull off bedroom attire at the function, but Kat Graham evidently can.

We love Kat Graham's look to the #mtvmovieawards #fashion #style #frolic #redcarpet

No shade, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but Kevin Hart’s Saint Laurent souvenir jacket trumps your lighting bolt tee just a smidgen.  

The entire cast of Straight Outta Compton achieving all kinds of #squadgoals.

Lowkey shouting out these two, again. 

Hot Mess

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Easter was a few weeks ago, Ariana. No need to flex for Peter Cottontail anymore.

Your funny game may be pitch perfect, Rebel Wilson, but your style game needs work.

How many alarms did you sleep through, Alexander Skarsgård?

Looks like Halsey just walked through a spiderweb before taking the stage.
