How these are not behind-the-scenes images off a Wonder Woman-esque film set I DO NOT KNOW.

Heroine Chic at the MTV Movie Awards

This is not very heroine chic.

It’s sexy and it’s snazzy and it pops (!) but it’s not heroine chic. Until this happened:

My Little Pony At the (Met) Gala!

The Met Ball is the most fun night for fashion every year. Or as the ponies would say: BEST. NIGHT. EVER. Unlike other red carpet events, the Met Ball is about fashion. Fashion takes center stage, legitimately, and so we get:

Coco Rocha as a humanized My Little Pony. Humanizing the ponies in art and cosplay is a huge part of the Pony and Brony fandom (my family is planning it for an upcoming convention ourselves). But I never expected to see it so CLEARLY on the red carpet. Basically, Coco is my fashion hero FOREVER for this.

Although she’s in Fluttershy’s colors, she’s rocking Pinkie Pie’s attitude: this is MY party. But don’t worry, I found the other ponies.

Ready-to-Wear: Snow White

I recently returned from Disney World and I already want to go back. But do you know there are rules about cosplay in the Magic Kingdom?

Night of a Thousand Ingenues (PCAs)

The title of this post is not meant to refer to the fact that newly single Zac Efron was photographed with every young woman at the awards show (but just sos you know, he was). No, it refers to the parade of actresses 16 to 26 that peopled the Peoples Choice “red” (it’s blue) carpet.

Let’s start with MY choice for Best New TV Drama, here are the Hellcats (Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale):

Shine! (MTV Movie Awards IV)

Where R-Patz sparkles, K-Stew shines:

I love this picture. She looks so MEAN. As for the Dolce and Gabanna, it suits her. I don’t like the necklace or the nail polish — both look like she’s going for “I don’t care”. As does the hair, but it’s been worse.
