The stars of GLOW on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet: knockout or nah?

MTV Movie and TV Awards 2018

Even though GLOW was overlooked for any recognition at this year’s MTV Movie and TV Awards (damned youths), stars Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin brought the eleganza for the ceremony’s red carpet on Saturday night.

Alison, who was a presenter during the ceremony, wore a black patterned bodysuit and sheer skirt combo from designer Sandy Liang. It looked like something her GLOW character, Zoya the Destroya, would wear at a wrestling gala. I’m not a huge fan of the look, but I adore her platform shoes with a heel that looks like stacked balls. For an actress playing a female wrestler, I think “stacked balls” is definitely an appropriate wardrobe choice. Alison incorporated a retro vibe to her look with a high ponytail and the one-two punch of pink lip gloss and “beginner blue” eye shadow (please let me not be the only person here who didn’t try rocking that look in the 80s).

Alison’s GLOW co-star, Betty Gilpin, sported a menswear-inspired Zac Posen suit, complete with matching pumps. She wore her hair pulled back into a bun, showcasing her smoky eyes and nude lips. Betty is also a beautiful woman and, although I’m not sold on the hair and makeup, I love the suit. I could get deep and say it’s the perfect representation of her character on the show, attempting to make her mark in a male-dominated field, but I really just think it’s a sexy suit, and it looks great on her.

Another overlooked actress for a nomination, Mandy Moore, showed up in a short, silver dress by Alberta Ferretti. When I saw this, all I could think was, “Oh, Mandy,” which made me think of the Barry Manilow song, which isn’t nearly as painful as this dress looks. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mandy, but this dress is a definite boot. It does absolutely nothing for her lovely figure. It’s too short and I don’t know what it’s doing to her boobs, but it’s not good. I like the sparkly stones on the shoulders and along the neckline, but it just needs to be longer, belted, or something. As much as I’m not a fan of the dress, she did everything to complement it right, such as the slicked back hair, long drop earrings, black clutch and strappy stilettos. I like the sci-fi vibe, but she should not have said yes to that dress. It makes me want to cry almost as much as watching an episode of This is Us does.

She may have been nominated for Best Villain (for her portrayal of Lenny Busker on the FX series Legion), but Aubrey Plaza looked positively angelic on the red carpet in a long sleeved cream-hued mini-dress decorated with beaded gold bows by designer Elisabetta Franchi. Everything about this look is on point, from her subtle makeup and side-swept, wavy hair to her metallic Jimmy Choo pumps. The Parks and Rec alum also sported Alexis Bittar earrings and Eva Fehren rings. If only I had decent looking legs, I would be searching out a knock-off of this dress right this minute. Brava, Aurey. And, being the sole female nominee in this category, here’s hopes that you take home a Moonman tonight.

    I very much like Mandy Moore’s dress.

  2. laulau says:

    Why so many long sleeves?

    GLOW is awesome and I love the casting.

  3. K says:

    Alison Brie and Mandy Moore seemed to choose the things that don’t work for them and then ran with those looks. Really unflattering.

    Aubrey Plaza and Betty Gilpin look great, but I wish Betty has worn a deeper or brighter lipstick. It would have been a complete knockout.

  4. Abbess Tansy says:

    Most of the looks are boring, bland, or overdone. Except Betty Gilpin’s Zac Posen suit. I want that suit, love the glitter shine and the fit.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Aubrey looks great!
    I like Betty’s suit, but Alison and Mandy’s dresses not so much. I just hate sheer skirts, and Mandy’s uncomfortable with how short it is.

    • Esmom says:

      This might be the best I’ve ever seen Aubrey look. Love her. Agree with the rest of your assessment, too. They are all beautiful women, though.

  6. Patricia says:

    I love that you “booted” one of the dresses hahaha.
    Alison Brie is a goddess, she’s so talented and so beautiful, and so enthralling on screen. Lately though she looks on the verge of gaunt. Maybe she needs to gain a few pounds back for her face to fill back out, or maybe this is just the way her face looks as she gets a few years older lately. But if she’s trying to be super skinny… she should stop! She looks better at a more normal weight. I hate the way the fascination with being as skinny as possible can ruin some women’s looks (like ScarJo, too). Natural body weight makes the most beautiful face. Hollywood freaks me out for this reason, the suuuper skinny obsession.

    mandy moose’s dress is awful. just awful.

  8. bella says:

    I agree with everything you said. Mandy dress -no, hair and makeup – yes, Betty Gilpin- suit- yes, makeup- – no, Alison Brie- outfit- no, shoes- yes, hair and makeup-heck yes!, Aubrey Plaza- dress- yes, hair and makeup-yes.

  9. Eden75 says:

    Sorry but those shoes do not look like stacked balls. Those are anal beads……

    The last outfit is adorable, she looks fab and comfortable. The rest? Yikes. No thanks.

  10. JennyJenny says:

    Betty Gilpin looks so much like Princess Charlene in these photos.

    • Bellaluna M says:

      I came here just to comment on this. As soon as I saw the photos, that was my precise thought. I even thought it was her at first.

  11. Amy Pannell says:

    All these women look terrible and aged. Look at those deep naso labial lines…poor things look over 45 and roughly used. The paunchy bellies on these sad old mares should be covered up too… who are they trying to fool in miniskirts up to their hoo ha’s?

  12. Jenna says:

    Mandy Moore’s makeup looks great. I like the style of her dress, but it doesn’t flatter her shape very well (maybe just the material hitting the wrong way). Alison’s hair and makeup look good too, but her dress is such a weird length at the bottom. Betty’s suit is amazing, but she looks dehydrated, hungover or perhaps just really tired.

  13. Hoping says:

    I love them and the show, but for me this is all a big no under every aspect.

  14. ladida says:

    Alison Brie is beautiful, but last night I watched some old Mad Men episodes. Man she’s had a lot of work done. Almost didn’t recognize her.

    • tealily says:

      Do you think so? I haven’t gone back and watched them lately, but I thought she had lost some weight and was doing her eyebrows differently.

      • ladida says:

        It could be that as well, weight loss and brows can make a huge difference. But I’d have to add botox, nose job, chin implant and boob job at the very least. I’m a huge fan of hers, she’s so talented, but I just find it kind of sad that women have to do all these things.

      • elle says:

        She looks really different to me, too. I thought she was gorgeous in Mad Men. She looks generic to me here.
