Divas and Darlings - Teen Choice Awards 2011

Red Carpet Fashion
Teen Choice Awards 2011

Young Hollywood starlets ambled across the blue carpet at last night's Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, California. Overall the style stakes were pretty dull, with just a handful of zesty looks on display.

My Favourite Looks
Nina Dobrev looked adorable in a navy and white gingham dress with fitted bodice and flair skirt. Her dress and white clutch bag are by Dolce & Gabbana, with satin heels by Salvatore Ferragamo. Model Hanna Beth Merjos' outfit appeals to the punk rocker in me. Her Marco Marco black bustier dress is structured and distressed all at the same. She added a white studded biker and leopard print heels to her look. Troian Bellisario always wows me with her red carpet gowns. Here she wears a stunning sheer grey chiffon gown with black criss-cross bodice, by Maria Lucia Hohan. A twinkly tiara Alice band adorns her hair.

Little Black & White Dresses
Avril Lavigne looks so refined for a change. She wears a black dress with sheer neckline from her own range, Abby Dawn. She added a punk touch with the yellow soled, stars-and-stripe sandals. Rachel Bilson looked lovely in a white Chloé dress with ruffled neckline. The studded booties let her down. Canadian actress Megan Park chose a charming little black ballerina dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. Multi-award winning singer Taylor Swift channeled Marilyn Monroe in a white silk halter neck dress with flair skirt, by Rafael Cennamo. A sparkly belt and grey bowed heels complete her look.

Cheery Colours
Blake Lively glows in tangerine. Her fitted leather dress is by Gucci, with leopard print pumps by Christian Louboutin. Elizabeth Banks also opted for a leather dress, hers in a bright scarlet red. Her J.Mendel mini is paired with an Edie Parker clutch and nude peep-toes. TV actress Holland Roden chose an emerald green mini by Donna Morgan, gold Matthew Campbell clutch and nude Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Twilight's Tinsel Korey was sunny in a Marisa Kenson mini with embellished asymmetrical neckline. She carried a Lancaster box clutch and wore Corso Como pumps. This look calls for a better shoe choice.

I like the inky pink and purple print of AnnaSophia Robb's ruched Malandrino mini. The black leather side panel keeps it modern. Ashley Benson wore an interesting black and yellow printed dress with high collar by Alice + Olivia. She added black accessories with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Ruthie Davis heels. Nikki Reed's printed Etro maxi dress looked like a sarong to me. Zooey Deschanel does her baby-doll thing in a black and peach floral dress, with glittery black heels and clutch, all by Miu Miu.

Two Tone
Kim Kardashian's dress of choice is by Givenchy. It has a white halter top and black feathered skirt. With her ballerina bun, she looks like an extra from Black Swan. I like the exaggerated striped shoulders on Fivel Stewart's tribal print dress, which is by MinkPink. She added a refreshing touch of orange with her clutch bag. Ashley Greene was simple in a black and white fitted dress by Givenchy. A pair of coloured heels would have jazzed her look up. Lucy Hale donned a sparkly sequin dress with cut outs and wavy black lines. It's by Turkish designer Cengiz Abazoglu. Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap sandals fit her feet.
Into the Blue
Cat Deeley revived the blue carpet in an aqua lace mini by Matthew Williamson, with nude Jimmy Choo heels. This colour is gorgeous on her. I had no idea who Destinee and Paris Monroe were before this event. The girl band members caught my attention in their complementing blue mini dresses. Their shoes are a national crisis. I appreciate that Kourtney Kardashian didn't go for a form-fitting dress like most stars. She wore a voluminous royal blue strapless dress with asymmetrical hem by Blaque Label. Her python pumps are by Christian Louboutin.

Selena Gomez in a matt gold Erin Fetherston mini with long white sash. Her look seems disjointed; but I do love her cerise pink clutch and purple with peach chiffon sandals. Awards show host, Kaley Cuoco wore an ice grey tiered gown by Rebecca Taylor. Emma Stone was colour-blocked in cream, bronze and brown. Her long-sleeved dress is by Christian Dior, heels by Lanvin. I almost dozed off at Cameron Diaz's ensemble. Then I realized that her amazing Burak Uyan colour block heels deserved all the attention.
Bottom Shelf
Grace Phillips in a nude slip with a piece of black chiffon pinned to it. Her glittery Spice Girl platform boots are giving me unpleasant 90's fashion flashbacks. Zoe Saldana, why this shiny muddy lamé dress with that awful roped belt? She usually looks so good on the red carpet. I get that Kat Graham likes to make edgy fashion choices, but the shoulder fringe needs to be snipped down to size. From the neck up, her hair and make-up is flawless. Demi Lovato, two words - Yellow. Doily.
