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:


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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!!!

  3. 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. 👍🏼

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
