Style Throwback: The Wildest and Wackiest of the MTV Movie Awards

Can you guess who these people are? Well, frankly, neither could we. Robert Downey Jr. is rocking a a baggy suit (accessorized with a coffee thermos?!) and Virginia Madsen chose head-to-toe plaid. 

Father of the Bride may or may not be one of our favorite flicks, so we're zipping our lips on Kimberly Williams' pin-striped and cut-out cocktail dress. Hey, it was the '90s! 

Cindy Crawford always looks flawless, even in what appears to be a dominatrix costume. 

That is some seriously radical fringe on Halle Berry's crop top. Luckily she's got the bod to pull it off. 

Oh Sharon Stone, we wish you hadn't pulled out this black wig for an awards show, but if there was ever an appropriate place, we guess MTV is it. 

Hopefully Marisa Tomei kept that floral headband - she could totally wear it to Coachella. The pants on the other hand? They can stay in 1993.

Before he was Trey MacDougal on Sex and the City, Kyle MacLachlan liked to rock silk pants. That explains a lot. 

Christina has changed her look up, down and all around, but here in February 2001 she's paired a dark tan with those braids.

We're not sure the Hawaiian shirt look works on Jackie Chan, but at least he's owning it in this shot.  

Claire Danes is usually ahead of the curve sartorially, but we're not a fan of this look.  True, separates are in, but this is separates gone wrong!

We're not sure if it's pajamas or a suit that Jenny McCarthy's wearing, but it sure looks comfortable!

Patricia Arquette's black dress is more than tight - it's like a second skin... and it does not look comfy.

Yowza! Fairuza Balk is showing some serious skin with that midriff-baring dress. 

We love a good leopard print, but Neve Campbell is taking it to a whole 'nother level with a skirt and pair or shoes. Side note: is that black strap from her bra or the top? Either way, we're not a big fan!

Gwen Stefani's canary yellow crop top might be competing with her platinum blonde hair, but at least it's a distraction from those chunky shoes.

We're not sure what's more blinding - Carmen Electra's white cut-out dress or her faux glow! 

Yes, that is Jim Carrey. And yes, we're at a loss for words.

Rebecca Romijn-Stamos might win the award for shortest dress we've ever spotted on a red carpet. 

A vaguely medieval feeling, high-slit silk kimono style dress and a wacky pose...we really wouldn't expect anything less from Courtney Love. 

We might be guilty of fangirl-ing over these boys back in the day, but yikes! There's a lot we could say about the looks sported by the members of 'N Sync, but we're going to refrain. However, we're more than a little relieved JT has abandoned his cornrows and Lance Bass no longer rocks frosted tips. 

Janet Jackson must have been going for the doom and gloom vibe with this look. 

We're starting to think Halle Berry has quite the crop top collection. 

Ananda Lewis wasn't afraid to bare it all, showing off some serious chest (and leg?) cleavage in this wacky getup.

Pink has the right idea when it comes to accessories. Why don't puppies on the red carpet happen more often? It's a welcome (and adorable) distraction from the mess of colors she's wearing!

Mya takes matching to a whole 'nother level with with her coordinating dress and eye shadow. Channeling Tinkerbell, perhaps?

A little less hair and make-up would have done the trick for Christina, but at least she's since ditched the lace-up pants - not the most lady-like of wardrobe choices!

We think Brittany Murphy is stuck in the '70s with these bell-bottom striped pants.

This punk rock ensemble situation clearly happened before Kelly Osbourne's appearance on Fashion Police

Between the "accidentally" bleached jacket and ripped jeans, we think Robert Luketic is trying to hard to get that "I don't care" look.

Paris Hilton may have been living the simple life, but this outfit is anything but. It is dangerously low cut on her midriff, and she's lucky it didn't become a wardrobe disaster!

We can't quite figure out what style Pink is going for here, but we know her outfit would have been better had she brought back the puppy. 

Well, we love Ashley Simpson's long hair, but it isn't enough to draw our eyes away from this frumpy, unfortunate dress.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to Samaire Armstrong, whose character Anna on The O.C loved to take fashion risks as well. This is a miss on lots of levels!

Apaparently Mya loves a good butterfly print, but there is way too much going on, and the lacy bottom and top just don't seem to fit.

Of course Andy Dick can't wear a plain black or navy suit. Plaid for the win! 

Rihanna takes lots of fashion risks, and sometimes they're amazing! Other times, not so much.  Ladies and gents, we have a not-so-much situation right here.

Singer Lucy Walsh looks pretty ridiculous in all these ruffles.  But we bet it was comfy when she settled in to watch the show, what with the cushion of extra fabric!

Sacha Baron Cohen never fails to shock us, this time showing off his legs in a revealing leopard print ensemble.  But seriously, thats a LOT of leopard.

We wish Monique Coleman would have toned down the volume with either her dress or her hair, the look is a bit much.

Lindsay's hair and makeup were on-point for the night, but that outfit was just... wrong. 

Oh Katy Perry, what a risk with this dress! She's got a rockin' bod, but these strategically placed sequins would have made us more than a little nervous!

A high-low dress taken to the extreme! Is it just us or does it look like Christina Aguilera's skirt was super heavy?

We can hardly keep track of everything that's going on here in Kat Graham's outfit: orange lips, blue shoes, bold chunky necklace and check out that shoulder on this dress! Busy, busy, busy.

Sorry, Grace V, but this dress looks like Easter egg dyeing -- gone wrong!

Never one to shy away from a bold look, Nicki Minaj chose to pair a short black hair style and signature pink lips with this risque top.

Not gonna lie, we're judging a bit.  Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys not only wore Tiffany-blue onesies, but with bunny footies to boot!

Between the high hemline and midriff-baring cutout, Brooke Hogan's sparkly dress is barely there, and a little risky.

We can't say we're in love with this dress on Amber Rose -- it almost looks like someone grabbed a glue gun and mint-green cotton puffs, and went to town!

The MTV Movie Awards are coming up -- for which we know we're in for a great evening -- and we can't wait to see who wins Best Kiss and Best Villain! Plus, did you see that Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane(Ted) are up for Best Fight? Epic. It's an awards show that is quite different than most!

One aspect that is surely unique about this show is the way the stars dress for the red carpet. Similar to the Grammy Awards, it seems to us that often the bigger and bolder the outfit, the better.

When the MTV Movie Awards first began in the early 1990's, the red carpet was fairly casual. While it's still much more laid back than say, the Golden Globes, in recent years we've seen the celebrity attendees kick it up a few notches. ​While some chose to go glam, however, others have chosen to step outside the box, ​sometimes with disastrous fashion consequences! ​We took a walk down memory lane with the MTV Movie Awards, and found some of the wackiest (and most cringe-worthy) ensembles of years past.

The '90s and early 2000s were filled with midriff-baring tops, and we saw far too many awkwardly placed slits and sheer fabrics. Some ladies cut it close(no pun intended) and are lucky their outfits didn't result in wardrobe malfunctions! From Cindy Crawford and Sharon Stone, to Pink and Katy Perry, the fashion risks kept coming in droves.

Click through the gallery to see for yourself -- but we're warning you, some of the looks may break your stylish heart!
