There's something about MTV award shows that inspire bizarre and brazen style choices. In honor of the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which air May 7, Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the most outrageous outfits stars have worn to the network's Movie Awards over the years, starting with the eye-catching ensemble Halle Berry donned back in 2000. The Oscar winner showed off her taut tummy — and her undergarments! — in a midriff-baring two-piece look. Pretty in pink? Not so much. Now keep reading for more!
During the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, Lil' Kim wore jeans with a statement belt and a bikini top that was just one baby step up from being a pair of pasties. This is what we call progress, people.
Can someone please tell us how the heck Carmen Electra kept this strapless gown from falling down at the 1998 MTV Movie Awards?

We're not sure which moment was more memorable during the 2009 MTV Movie Awards: Was it Sacha Baron Cohen — as his alter ego Bruno — vogueing on the red carpet in a pair of leopard-print briefs? Or Sacha Baron Cohen as alter ego Bruno flying down from the rafters to give Eminem a very uncomfortable bare-butt face, er, lap dance?
WHOA! Where do we begin? Well, we're loving Pink's brightly colored 'do, but in regards to the rest of her look at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards … it was a big ol' mess.
Sharon Stone wore an LBD with black tights, elbow-length white gloves — with jewelry over them, of course — and a feathered hat during the second MTV Movie Awards back in 1993.
Here's a reminder that Victoria Beckham hasn't always been known for her flawless sense of style. Back in 2007, the former Spice Girl donned a pink-trimmed zebra-print micro-minidress during the MTV Movie Awards. Yikes!
Did she forget a few buttons? Tara Reid donned a black jumpsuit that awkwardly gaped open at the front during the 2000 MTV Movie Awards. (By the way, folks, armpit cutouts are never a good idea.)
Paris Hilton showed off her bronzed bod in very little during the 2003 MTV Movie Awards.
"Pitch Perfect" actress Hana Mae Lee donned a cigarette-butt fascinator by Alain Lafaille for He-Ha during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Fashion critics may have despised the over-the-top headpiece, but we bet Big Tobacco were fans!
Well, MTV, this is what you get when you invite Bai Ling to your award show. During the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, the Chinese actress wore a barely there skirt with a golden-dragon top complete with a horned breastplate, a dragon head on the left shoulder and a tail that snaked around to her hip.
Back in 1999, Jim Carrey attended the MTV Movie Awards dressed up as a bizarre hybrid of Rob Zombie and Jim Morrison. The comedian wore distressed denim and a long jean jacket with a hippie-approved crochet top, plus a wig and fake beard, to accept the golden popcorn award for Best Male Performance for his work in "The Truman Show." He even acknowledged his "new biker friends" during his acceptance speech.
Christina Aguilera put a modern spin on her "Lady Marmalade" style during the 2001 MTV Movie Awards. The singer, who rocked a permed hairdo and performed the "Moulin Rouge" hit during the telecast, wore a corset top with lace-front pants and heavy makeup.
Lindsay Lohan risked a wardrobe malfunction in a sparkly jumpsuit with a plunging neckline during the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. We actually think she looks kinda great — except, you know, for the major lack of support on her upper half.
Could it be that Samaire Armstrong's wacky MTV Movie Awards ensemble was what hipster style looked like in 2004? If so, we're glad to see that hipster style has improved over the years.
Back in 2011, Jessica Szohr still had access to her coveted "Gossip Girl" wardrobe, so we have to ask: Why did she choose to wear this busy paisley black-and-white jumpsuit to the MTV Movie Awards that year?
If party rocking is wrong, we want to be right. Much like their music, LMFAO's ensembles during the 2010 MTV Movie Awards were kinda loud and annoying.
Halsey sure made a statement at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards — by wearing next to nothing. The singer donned a tiny pink embellished bustier and short-shorts combination, and topped it off with a matching embellished jacket.
Coachella or MTV Movie Award ensemble? Kesha went boho at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, opting for sheer white lace pants, a printed top and a black fringe vest. She topped the look off with the quintessential choice of bohemian ladies everywhere — a floppy black hat.
Well, no one would accuse Tyler Posey of not being comfortable at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. The MTV star sported a bright red onesie to the big event, which even had a nod to his employer — an MTV logo — emblazoned on the left side.
Macklemore rocked a…. cape to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. His bizarre fashion choice was worn over an electric blue suit, which matched the background color on his printed cape. Four years later, we're still unclear on why he rocked this garment.
Back at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, Julia Stiles was up for prizes for her hit flick "Save the Last Dance." Getting just as much attention that night? Her odd fashion choice: a teeny tiny crop top emblazoned with the Mets logo paired with low-rise jeans.
Kerry Washington appeared at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in this confusing frock. The black long-sleeved minidress would have been super-stylish and a fashion hit, but the strange golden peplum-like addition — complete with a lengthy train — really raised eyebrows that night.
