13 MTV Movie Awards Accessories That Epitomized The Early '00s — PHOTOS

In comparison to today's standards, 2000s era accessories spotted at the MTV Movie Awards look pretty dated. I don't even really want to talk about it, but in case you're unfamiliar, here's a rundown of what constituted as trendy back then. The early '00s were all about embellishing. Designers used everything and anything from rhinestones, insane prints, frosted everything, brand names, chains, and leather and suede cutouts. No solid or dark color was safe from almost excessive over-design. Hats were bucket and pageboy, whilst bags and purses were minuscule in comparison to today's large hobos and graphic clutches. Buckles were almost everywhere besides your belt.

If you've ever found an old GirlTech Password Journal commercial on YouTube, that should explain a good amount to you about what life was like for people my age growing up. Heck, my greatest fashion role model growing up was Lizzie Mcguire!

When it came to the red carpet instead of real life, trends were similar. Art imitated life, and we saw everything from Jenny-from-The-Block in sparkly bandanas and body glitter to frosted sun glasses on Queen Latifah to Lil Kim in pasties. The MTV Movie Awards were not exempt. Although the red carpet was not as notorious for wacky style as the Grammy's or the VMAs, celebrities still exhibited some pretty iconic early 00s trends. Take a look back at some of these mystifying accessories below.

The ice on Amanda Bynes's necklace and wrists was so early 2000s because everyone was obsessed with crystals on dresses and studs.

13. Rhinestones

Host of the 2004 MTV Movie Awards, Lindsay Lohan, studs it up with terry cloth and rhinestones for her opening dance. It's truly an amazing performance to watch and really explains a lot about culture in the early '00s. Also, you've got to note those diamond crosses!
