Lady in red!! The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards broadcasted this past weekend and Chrissy Metz was a red rockstar! The This Is Us star hit the MTV red carpet in a deep red latex babydoll dress with ruffled cap sleeves and a pair of cute ballet flats to finish off the look. It was the perfect look for the edgy nature of the MTV crowd. The MTV awards franchise — whether that be movie/tv or music — are known to let their hair down at the red carpet and Metz nailed it!

In fact, I’m thinking she may have channeled an MTV iconic video: Oops!… I Did It Again by Britney Spears! It’s like a glamorous meets adorable version of the infamous jumpsuit. You see it, right??
Honey was not only on trend, she was on topic!
Along with slaying the red carpet, Metz gave the dress a second spotlight by presenting the award for Best Duo, along with her This Is Us TV father Milo Ventimiglia. The success doesn’t stop there, though! She was also nominated for the highly-coveted First Generation Award! This Is Us was also nominated for Show of the Year and a Tearjerker award, the latter of which ended up going to the NBC ensemble drama.

Oh, and for those haters out there who don’t think Metz is “allowed” to join the latex trend? Metz deftly dropped the mic for that crowd:
For the record, I wear what I want, when I want. News flash it’s
MY body. #thankstho

Whoop, there it is.
In terms of body-shaming, art imitates life itself as Metz portrays Kate Pearson and her struggle with her body image on This Is Us. Chrissy is transparent enough with her own relationship with her body image, giving off a real “sister” vibe to pair with the confidence she exudes on red carpets and on camera. As she told Marie Claire in an interview earlier this year, “Size doesn’t equate to beauty.”
Chrissy, you go girl! You’re out here starring in a hit TV show, taking trends to a whole different level, and dismissing haters in the process of uplifting girls around the world, all while finishing it all off with a confident hair flip.
We live for it!
She is totally SPOT ON. It’s her body and her dress. Case closed.
She is a gorgeous woman and I agree with everything she said but IMO, that dress is hideous!
It looked like a shower curtain. I’m not a fan of latex, on anyone.
I love the dress, and the color is so good on her. I like that she is willing to go outside the box and be a little daring with her fashion, especially for an event that is supposed to be a little more fun.
I thought it was a thought out piece that really did bring focus to the best parts of her figure …. good for her, she was nicer then I would have been .
The color is beautiful. It’s the cut that is not so flattering but she’s so cute and if she likes it, so be it.
My only criticism is it clearly doesn’t fit her chest. The actual dress itself is pretty effing cool.
And the shoes don’t fit properly but if all fit right it would be badass.
This. That bustline is in the wrong place.
That dress is the wrong style for her for her shape, age and height. She is correct, it’s her body and choice but I hope she gets a better stylist STAT.
100% your opinion.
Marcy J Huff-Taylor And it’s a rude, antiquated opinion. Holds no merit and won’t change what she decides to wear, thankfully.
Her age? Lord
No, it’s not. Just because they make something in her size doesn’t mean it looks good on her. That empire waist is not flattering on her at all, period.
I just want to know where she bought it!
Seriously, who made this dress and where do I get it, the sleeves are kick ass, and its red and shiny and I want it.
Im thinking its custom and havent sren anyone claim it!
Yes Good for Her!
i like it but have to admit it reminds me of a fruit roll upð
More women need to realize that Real Men are attracted to confident women, so they should dare a little or a lot more. Own it, ladies!
Love the color!
Was that dress made out of car upholstery? Chrissy is pretty but that dress is horrid. Completely wrong for her shape.
Man this has been all over fb and I made the mistake of commenting on one that people were so rude in. People want to judge her because of her size. It’s bullshit. Who says she isn’t healthy? Who says she doesn’t work out? I mean they did away with male and female awards. Next step, do away with judgement!!!
I love this dress and think she looks fabulous. Good on her for being herself. Her hair and makeup looks lovely too. Showing her inner sexy with the latex look but has a bit of innocence too in the babydoll style. For a lady of her size that’s hard to pull off but she did well. ðð¼
She looked great
I think it was interesting. But I would have been sweating to death in that dress. Latex does not breathe.
Good for her!
Latex is hot and she looks amazing!
I mean, come on, no matter the size of the person wearing that dress it still looks like a garbage bag. I have a feeling someone is giving her bad fashion advice. There are some really gorgeous dresses that she could wear and just totally rock them.
Yeah I kinda hate how we’re expected to love everything a plus sized woman puts on.
Someone needs to give her better advice on what to wear, that dress makes her look like freshly polished Red Delicious apple. It’s almost like they choose the worst pieces for plus size actresses. If she listened to someone that told her she looked great, should be fired.
Loved her response
She looks great. Nice dress and she looks nice as well.
Video don’t see anything wrong with it what am I missing
I would have liked to see the dress better fitted for her shape. At that level of publicity – the cost of a tailor fixing the dress for your body is priceless.
Yes, that seam across the boob is a no-no
Wow. Such judgers. I love the dress. And love her in the dress.
The dress is hideous
I agree it’s really bad. Love her though.
I think it’s cute and fun. But…..I think a different shape would be better. The pleats around the biggest part of her tummy make her look even bigger.
It’s not about appearing smaller though. The point is people should stop policing other people’s bodies and how they should dress those bodies etc.
True. Good point.
She looks cute.
She looked great.
But it wasn’t a good fit… the seam is mid-boob. If it was cut better for her, I’d like it.
She looks cute as hell.
I love the color, not so much the material…
Her acting, and the writing of her character on this show, is the most accurate portrayal I have ever seen on what it’s like to walk through this world in a large body. How you fluctuate between confidence and self loathing, and how every single minute you are taking it into account. How you want so badly to make changes but somehow sabotage yourself every time. It’s one reason I adore this show.
Cute dress and I love those little sleeves! That style is exactly what I go for. I’d want this in a lightweight fabric because in that latex, I’d get heatstroke and pass out!
I would have styled her differently with black or matching tights i think. Not my favorite look but like she says its her body her choice.
Shes gorgeous, the dress not so much…
She looks fantastic, and yeah why should she care what other people think. She should be able to dress how she wants 😀
Love the confidence. More power to her. Mesmerizing persona
Plus the dress is fierce and she slayed in it and haters gonna hate because inside they hate themselves
She is right. Wear what you like. Yazzzzzzzz. I think it was horrible though.
She looked great! Wear what you want and forget what other people think…
