The 2013 MTV Movie Awards—a.k.a. the tween Oscars—happened in Los Angeles last night. If you are above the age of 14 chances are you did not tune in, but don't worry: you didn't miss much, at least in terms of fashion. A brief recap of the highlights: Kerry Washington looked pretty and poised in Michael Kors, Kim Kardashian rocked another uncomfortably sexed-up maternity look, and Selena Gomez continued her I'm-a-grown-up-now rebranding efforts in a gorgeous sparkly Julien Macdonald cocktail number. (Stylelist has a slideshow of all the red carpet looks, should you care to see them.)

Personally, our two favorite looks from the night were Ru Paul, who came dressed as a very dapper-looking he in a floral suit, and Quvenzhane Wallis who combined bright, on-trend sneakers, colored denim, and a high-low dress with another of her signature puppy purses. You just go on being you, Quvenzhane.
