The MTV Movie Awards go down tonight in L.A. -- and if history is anything to go by, there's going to be A LOT of very bad fashion on the red carpet.

Skin reigns supreme at the annual event, where stars somehow find ways to show more and more flesh every year.

Nicki Minaj, Paris Hilton, Lil Kim, Carmen Electra, Christina Aguilera and more have all worn some pretty out-there outfits ... and they're not alone!

Check out which stars had the tackiest clothes (or lack thereof) in the past -- and be sure to come back tonight starting around 4pm PT for the latest red carpet photos from this year's event.
