The MTV Movie & TV Awards have come to be known as the entertainment industry event of the year where Movie stars, musicians, and the best of the fashion world collide for an evening watched by millions worldwide.
This year saw a lot of big changes come to the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Now the award show with the Golden Popcorn trophy has expanded to honour the best of TV as well as movies. We went down to Hollywood to mingle with the stars attending the 26th annual show hosted by comedian and actor Adam DeVine.
This year MTV broke down barries by letting men, women, and gender non-conforming actors compete in each category. We saw Stranger Things own the TV category while Beauty and the Beast received the top movie awards.
Check out our behind the scene coverage of the dopest gifting lounge at the MTV Movie & TV awards. We met a ton of the top celebs who shared our love of fashion and style.
Notable stars we met:
Memorable moments of the night:
The show kicked off with a Beauty and the Beast musical number by host Adam DeVine accompanied by the multi-talented Hailee Steinfeld who mastered the on screen outfit change becoming Belle in the iconic yellow dress.
Emma Watson’s victory in the first genderless Best Actor category was a particularly moving moment, as a champion for feminism, Emma believes Belle is a positive role model for girls around the world as she refused to stick to the status-quo of a Disney princess.
Our favourite kids from the Stranger Things cast stole the show, as they have been doing all awards season, with Millie Bobby Brown (Aka Eleven) picking up the best Actor in a TV series – Eggo’s all around!
The Spice Girls would be proud of the serious Girl Power that took over the awards last night

As we wrap up the “most dramatic season in Bachelor history,” (sorry, couldn’t resist!) there was definitely one bachelorette that stood out of the crowd. We fell head over heels for Vanessa Grimaldi, the natural beauty from Montreal, our hometown! As soon as we saw her undeniable connection with Nick Viall from their very first one-on-one date we knew they were meant for each other. Maybe it was her down to earth no-nonsense attitude, her infectious smile, her passion for working with the special needs community or the fact that she’s from Montreal and we’re biased – but this Italian babe definitely captivated our hearts each episode as we watched the drama unfold.
If you’re not already a dedicated player on #TeamVanessa then you should know that Ms. Grimaldi won fans over with her sweet, but opinionated personality on a show full of- um, let’s call them “characters”. She quickly became one of the most well-liked contestants in the media and stood out as role model for women who stand up for what they want in relationships. Originally from Montreal, Vanessa is a special-needs teacher to adults with various disabilities, something she says she always aspired to be. Here’s a little inside scoop, that not many people know – it was originally one of her best friends who had submitted her application to the show! She was quite surprised getting the call back from the network to meet them.
For those of you that are true fans of the show, you all know that no matter what happened in her love quest with Nick, she always remained true to herself and her values while also staying humble – And we just love that!
We invited Vanessa to the Tempt Brands offices to hang out with our glam squad and share some of her favourite date looks with us. Having shopped Tempt before her TV debut, it only made sense for us to get her insider style info to be able to share with you some of her favorite daytime and nighttime date looks! Check out the behind the scenes photos below.
Getting to know Vanessa and working with her on this project was such a joy! She’s an incredibly funny, quirky and grounded young woman. And what a natural beauty! Best of all, we were all impressed at how many chicken fingers and fries she can pack into that little 5 foot 3 inch body.
We couldn’t wait to get to know more about life on The Bachelor. While she didn’t give away all the details about everything that happened on the show, we got some insider knowledge about what happens behind the scenes before and after those suspenseful Rose Ceremonies.
