CelebrityStyle File: 2014 MTV Movie Awards!

The MTV Movie Awards are always a riot that turns Hollywood on its ear with outlandish surprises and non-stop laughs, and this year was no different! Conan O’ Brien was our fearless leader for the evening, and the stars were pulling out all the stops (Zac Efron’s shirtless salute, anyone?)! And while the red carpet may not have been studded with the fanciest of gowns, our favorite starlets kept it fun and fabulous!
