Young Hollywood convened at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday night to celebrate the year in music, film and television (or at least the music, film and television that is relevant to the teen set) for the Teen Choice Awards.
I love events like this where the main red carpet stars are young and sometimes newcomers to the celebrity scene. They don't all have stylists—or at least, they don't all have good stylists. They're still figuring out their personal style (most of them are still teenagers themselves, after all) and the resulting red carpet looks are fresh, fun, and risky. These girls are here to get noticed and that leads to interesting fashion statements, for better or for worse.
Pictured above are some of my favorite looks from the night. Crop tops proved that they are definitely here to stay. Nina Dobrev, Shay Mitchell, Jordin Sparks, Taylor Swift, and others all bared their midriffs with crop tops but no one looked trashy in doing so. Most of these girls have been walking the red carpet for a while now and thus have figured out what they look good in.
Selena Gomez continued her classy lady style streak with a sleek version of le smoking, which Yves Saint Laurent originally reimagined for women. The metallic pumps and the cool ponytail keep this look modern and youthful, and I feel that Selena has truly hit her style stride.
I loved Shailene Woodley's Peter Pilotto dress and especially enjoyed how she drew out the red in her dress with matching red heels. I only wish she had worn a sleeveless or short-sleeve version for the summer event. Nina Dobrev similarly matched her shoes to a color in her look, which made her outfit look instantly put together.
Nina Dobrev would have to be my pick for best dressed of the night.
