Teen Choice Awards 2011

I must say, there were some pretty awesome dress choices out there last night. For example, the beautiful Avatar, Zoe Saldana.
Zoe Saldana rocked the blue carpet in this lovely Lanvin dress and gold Mary Jane pumps. This eye-catching dress instantly made my list and is by far my favorite of the night.
Officially the most important winner of the Teen Choice Awards 2011, Taylor Swift looked gorgeous as she went to receive her surfboard for being the Ultimate Choice. She donned a simple white Rafael Cennamo and Ranjana Khan dress with lovely shoes to match.
Next is the talented Selena Gomez, who I am a HUGE fan of. She wore this cute white cocktail dress from Erin Fetherston on the blue carpet, with a little hot pink clutch for a pop of color.
Selena Gomez also wore this daredevil number while performing her hit single, "Love You Like a Love Song."
 The Twilight Saga star Nikki Reed took a bohemian look to the TCA's this year. She wore this chic halter maxi dress by Etro, and her onyx earrings are to die for!
WOW! Look at Lucy Hale in this insanely sexy backless mini. Not only was the cut amazing, but the pattern was so abstract and fun, perfect for a night like this. And in case you couldnt tell from this camera angle, but her platforms actually had no heel!
This daring choice was jaw-dropping, and Lucy Hale definitely pulled it off.
 Troian Bellisario looked so sweet and innocent in this Maria Lucia Hohan dress. She made a good move by using almost no accessories, and the ones she did use were nice and simple. The half up-do really pulled the look together.

Least Favorites
I don't really know why, but I've always had a particular disliking for clothes made of leather. Leather jacket, OK. Leather purse, OK. But leather dress? NO WAY. It just looks so uncomfortable and awkward and it makes me feel like, "What was going through your head to make you wear something like that?" And it seems (to my dismay) that leather is in this season, because three huge celebrities walked down the blue carpet donning full-out leather looks. Who? The supermodel, Tyra Banks. The actress, Elizabeth Banks. And another actress, Blake Lively.
Tyra Banks wearing a Thierry Mugler jumpsuit. In my opinion, she was the worst-dressed celebrity of the Teen Choice Awards.
Elizabeth Banks in J. Mendel. Of course, the material was the worst thing about this for me, but also the little flaps on the side of her dress. Because it's leather, the flaps look too stiff and it's just plain weird for me. On the up side, however, I do like the way she matched her lipstick and dress perfectly. It gives it a nice pop, and stands out well with her fair complexion.
Yeah, yeah. I know what you guys are thinking. She was, by many many people, named one of the best dressed of last night. And in all honesty, she would've been in my best dressed list as well if it weren't for the leather. But hey, the material you make a dress out of matters. A lot. So even though I adore everything else Gucci did with this dress, as soon as I saw the leather, I tsk-ed. If that makes sense.

  1. Great post. I love Zoe Saldana! Following! Follow me back? xoxo margaret

  2. The PLL actresses look gorgeous! Lucy Hale's dress however, looks a bit like an ice-skating outfit. I would've loved it if it was a bit longer. I agree with your least fave choices. Sweaty latex materials are just gross on the red carpet.

  3. My favs are definitely Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario! I love watchin PLL - they have such a great stylist for the show and the girls obviously know how to rock an award show :)
