Like the Kids' Choice Awards, the MTV Movie Awards are more of a casual, loose event, so the stars dress down even when dressing up.

Names like Dior and Balenciaga are absent from red carpet ensembles in favor of fun, less dressy items like jeans and short dresses. The best dressed at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards were a mix of glam and casual, thanks to Selena Gomez, Emma Watson and Snooki. (Yes, Snooki).

Selena Gomez:

The singer and actress was a golden goddess in a fringe mini by Julien McDonald. She paired the short and sexy dress with a messy, fishtail braid. She has the greatest legs of her generation.

We know -- we were shocked, too. The new mom looked super duper glam, if a little drawn in the face, in a blush lace gown with a mega slit, with her hair falling in curls, as opposed to her signature, rat's nest bouffant. Who knew?

Emma Watson:

The British actress was darling in a geometric mini by Maxine Simoens paired with tricky Proenza Schouler heels. The short, mod dress was dynamite alongside her still-short hair.

Ariana Grande:

The cutie wore a pale pink party frock from Jones & Jones with a floral top and a flirty, short skirt. It was a "wow" moment for her.

Bella Thorne:

The Disney star paired her flame-hued hair with an eggshell pantsuit that was totally spring ready. It could have aged her -- she's just 15 -- but the classically-cut Emporio Armani design made her look like a respectable and well-dressed young lady, while the tight pants kept it edgy.
