'Teen Mom' star Farrah Abraham hits 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards in traditional sari

Farrah Abraham turned heads Sunday night at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards when she stepped out in a traditional Indian Sari.

The "Teen Mom" star, who hails from Iowa and is of Italian, Syrian and Danish descent, donned the gold and pink two-piece ensemble which screamed Bollywood and definitely steered away from her normal Jessica Rabbit-style ensembles.

Abraham's bright dress from Taal Boutique & Bridal was adorned with lots of sparkles and she teamed it with long necklaces, a gold headpiece, henna tattoos, bracelets and some seriously smoky eyes. She polished by wearing her long blond locks down.
