The 22nd annual MTV Movie Awards is only hours away. And, as with any glamorous red carpet event, the night will be as much about the awards as the beautiful women in fashionable gowns and sexy dresses.

Over the years, the MTV Movie Awards night has seen a number of celebrities in sophisticated gowns... and some others in crazy ensembles. It has seen plunging necklines, high slits, sheer fabrics and more.

In 1998, for example, television personality and actress Carmen Electra made jaws drop when she hit the red carpet in a backless white gown. Not to be outdone, singer Lil' Kim's 2001 dress was daring and almost topless, leaving very little to the imagination.

More recent red carpet appearances have become quite a bit more conservative. There is still a generous helping of the stylish in gowns today. Consider Kristen Stewart's black, silver and lime Guishem dress with Christian Louboutin heels and a Repossi ring from 2012. The Twilight star sported a studiously styled tousled hair-do and smoky-eyed make-up.

As for the show, Australian comedienne Rebel Wilson, who is nominated for Best Female Performance and Breakthrough Performance for Pitch Perfect, will host the event. The 26-year-old actress will be the first female anchor of the show in six years.

Brad Pitt will be presenting the award for Movie of the Year and Peter Dinklage handing the Comedic Genius Award to Will Ferrell. Other presenters will include Kim Kardashian, Steve Carell, Melissa McCarthy, Zac Efron, Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto.
