Hollywood’s brightest dazzle on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet

The 2019 MTV Movie Awards red carpet brought out a bevy of celebrities to honor the best and brightest of  Tinseltown in Los Angeles on Saturday.

And Elisabeth Moss led the cavalcade of luminaries alongside Aubrey Plaza and Tiffany Haddish at Santa Monica’s Barker Hanger.

The The Handmaid’s Tale lead, 36, dazzled in form-fitting black metallic frock as the Parks & Rec alum, 34, turned heads in a sparkling mini dress and the Girls Trip star, 39, oozed Old Hollywood glamour.

Fresh off her premiere of the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth sizzled in a form-fitting black frock that featured a silver metallic Chinese dragon embellishment.

Her trademark sandy blonde tresses were pinned back slightly allowing a few loose tendrils to brush her shoulders as her youthful glow took center stage. 

She let her gorgeous gams steal the spotlight as the chic couture number cut high on her toned thighs while she rocked matching heels with silver metallic beads. 

Allowing her natural beauty to shine, the Mad Men alum went virtually makeup free as she offered a slight smokey eye and soft berry lip for the glamorous extravaganza.
