With such offbeat categories as Best Kiss and Best Action Sequence, it was expected that the MTV Movie Awards would be a far cry from the Oscars. They were. Even the fashions were unconventional, ranging from whimsical to simple chic.

While Rita Wilson went for a sexy Alaia number, her husband, Tom Hanks, rummaged his closet for "a very, very old Armani."

Alicia Silverstone, the 17-year-old actress who took home two awards including Best Villain for her performance in "The Crush," showed up in a chic black satin pantsuit but didn't know the designer. "A friend picked it out for me, I know nothing about clothes," she giggled, then added, "This is sooo weird."

Raising the most eyebrows was Penelope Ann Miller in an orange sequined knee-length slip dress that oddly matched the color of her hair. "I'm a big pumpkin," she laughed.

And raising the most hemline was Elle Macpherson in a mini, miniskirt-and-tails coat by John Galliano worn with strappy Manolo Blahnik sandals.

MTV's conservative-cool veejay, Kennedy, went for a liberal dose of pattern that went from her jacket down to her shoes.

"I'm wearing Todd Old-HAM," she said. "That's how you pronounce it isn't it? Old-HAM?"

The winner of Most Trends in a Single Outfit went to Courtney Love, who wore a slipdress, Maryjane shoes, a crocheted hat and a rock star (Michael Stipe) on her arm.

A few nights earlier, the establishment of the film business gathered at the Beverly Hilton to honor George Lucas with the first annual USC School of Cinema-Television Award for Leadership. "I lived on hot chocolate, candy bars and no sleep," said Lucas of his days at the university's film school. "I was a troublemaker...always pushing the limit." Lucas was surrounded by now-famous fellow Trojans including John Singleton, James Ivory, David Wolper, Jack Haley Jr. and Ron Howard -- who took a different approach to school than Lucas did and spent his time sneaking into film classes that were off-limits to neophytes. "I did it because I really wanted to get going," Howard said.
