There was no shortage of glamour on the 2016 MTV Movie Awards red carpet.

The ceremony held in Los Angeles on Saturday night made room for some of the biggest names in entertainment including movie beauties Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain and modelling starlets Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. 

Charlize, 40, stunned in a black lace Alexander McQueen dress with jewel-encrusted butterflies adorning her plunging neckline while her other superstar counterparts also opted for low-cut numbers. 

A pretty pleated skirt flashed her black undergarments but stopped just at her knee keeping the look super sophisticated.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star wore her blonde tresses pulled tight in a chic bun to highlight her razor-sharp cheekbones.

Completing the look the South African beauty elevated her already lofty 5ft 10in frame in elegant black stiletto heels and carried a small satin clutch.

Jessica, 39, also brought movie star style to proceedings in a beaded black Givenchy fishtail gown which also featured a corseted bodice.

Sheer lace sleeves added a delicate touch to the look to offset the dramatic flowing skirt.

Reality star-turned-model Kendall Jenner stunned in a black asymmetric gown with thigh-high lace-up stilettos and matching lace-up on the bodice of the halterneck garment. 

The split on the sheer gown ensured that every inch of her slender model figure was on show, while the racy boots added a slight dominatrix feel to the racy look.

Kendall wore her raven tresses in a low bun with tendrils framing her face, while her make-up was kept simple yet striking.

The 20-year-old star's BFF Gigi Hadid opted for something a little different as she arrived in a pinstripe suit with lace bra peeking out from underneath.

Her suit was smart and stylish, giving a business feel to a glamorous affair, yet she ensured she upped the sex appeal to full by flashing her underwear - a look a supermodel could pull off with ease. 

The stunning star, also 20, looked striking as she showed off her newly sheared fringe - a look which made her look more than slightly like 1960s screen siren Brigitte Bardot.

Mean Girls star Lizzy Caplan shimmered in a sequin-encrusted halterneck gown with sheer skirt. The 33-year-old actress sported pretty waves in her brunette bob and carried a black and gold box clutch. 

Halle Berry was another actress to sport black lace at the event. The 49-year-old beauty donned a figure-hugging pencil dress with sheer panel at the waist and teamed it with satin heels.

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham was one of the first stars to pose on the red carpet and brought shimmering Hollywood glamour to proceedings in a gold strapless dress.

The strapless number hugged her curvaceous figure to accentuate her assets. The 24-year-old reality star opted for soft curls in her thick brunette locks and she added some colour with scarlet red lipstick.

Farrah's fellow Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans also chose a sparkling number and showed off her tan in a halterneck dress encrusted with jewels.

The brunette mother-of-two was joined by her boyfriend David Eason and the loved-up duo couldn't help but share a smooch for cameras. 

Celebs gathered on Saturday night at Warner Bros. Studios for a pre-taping of the ceremony to toast another year in movies as they were honoured by fans who voted for their favourite stars and films in various categories, which will air the following night on Sunday.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the leading nominees going into the awards show. The sci-fi hit competed with Creed, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Straight Outta Compton for movie of the year.

The 11 bids for The Force Awakens include multiple nominations for stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.

Ridley is nominated for four awards; best female performance, breakthrough performance, best hero and best fight scene - all for Star Wars.  

Coming in a close second for number of combined nominations is Deadpool with eight nods including best performance for stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin as well as best kiss between the duo. 

The MTV Movie Awards added two new categories this year: True Story and Documentary. Fans can vote for their favorites in all categories online.

Oscar winner Spotlight was snubbed in the true story category and instead Will Smith's Concussion goes up against Joy, Steve Jobs, Straight Outta Compton, The Big Short and The Revenant.

Avengers: Age of Ultron has six nominations in categories including movie of the year, best hero and best villain.

For best female performance, Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander gets a nod for Ex-Machina while Anna Kendrick is nominated for Pitch Perfect 2.

The duo are up against other contenders Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Morena Baccarin (Deadpool). 

Academy Award winner Leonardo Di Caprio will battle it out for best male performance against Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), Matt Damon (The Martian), Will Smith (Concussion), Michael B. Jordan (Creed) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool). 

'What has always been so cool about the MTV Movie Awards is that it's about blockbuster movies that audiences line up to see; comedies, superheroes, science fiction, fantasy, action,' said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer after the nominees were announced.

'This show is about fandom and the stars come out to celebrate that. The nominees and the content are naturally diverse and eclectic because we're a true reflection of real movie-going audience.'

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards will air 8pm ET on MTV.
