The Teen Choice awards were on last night, a show that always brings punches of bright colour and playful fashion to the carpet. The youthful fearlessness is a key factor in what makes it one of my favourites, not to mention its spot as one of summer’s last big events. Here’s who I thought killed it on the blue carpet:
Shay Mitchell killed it in this white belted shirt dress and strappy heels. Definitely a look that can transition summer to fall (we’ll even allow it past labour day!)
Bright, fun, and fit Bella Thorne like a glove. Bonus points for “going out on a limb” with it’s nature-y pattern and contrasting clutch.
Now, I’m used to watching Bethany Mota on a much smaller screen, which made it so exciting to see her success leading up to this event, including taking home the surfboard for Female Web Star and dazzling the crowd with her speech. Her dress fit her gorgeously and the somewhat sheer black back was a killer touch to an otherwise simple dress. Well done team internet!
An unexpected favourite, I genuinely loved the retro shape and feel of Chloe’s outfit and thought she completely stole the stage (as she is used to) when she accepted her favourite dancer surfboard. I always preferred her to Maddie anyways… (Avid dance moms watcher here)
Two beauty looks I adored, Janel Parrish’s bright berry lip and Lucy Hale’s deep blue smokey eye. Two key styles to try this fall whether it be dressed up for going out, or more muted for daytime. Both of them are also sporting slicked-back, middle part, low ponytails, something I can assure we will see a lot of this fall, as well as a significant loss of volumized hair. Not sure I’ll be able to rock that one, but definitely worth a shot!
Of course, Zendaya has now become a fashion and beauty fixture and she proved that again last night with her daring Ashi Studio ensemble and lengthy braid. Her neutral lip colour looks stunning, as well as her fiercely lined eyes.
Let me know what you think of my picks and of the awards themselves!
