04.08.08 Best Dressed

2008 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Leighton Meester stayed away from the mini skirts and mini dresses like most of her contemporaries, and opted for a very grown up look, wearing a beautiful green Lanvin Spring 2008 Grecian draped cocktail dress.

She accesorized with black peep-toes, gold earrings and a gold bracelet.

Her hair appears to be lighter than usual.

Best Strapless Award
I am not a fan of Katharine McPhee, but I absolutely adore this strapless dress.

It’s cute, fun, flirty and totally unique.

I love the embroidered pattern and the tulle hem.

Best Legs Award
I love this mini purple one-shouldered Tadashi Shoji dress on Blake Lively, her legs appear endless.

The dress is cute and appropriate for the event, but the shoes are so boring.

A gladiator heel, or a strappy sandal would have made a whole world of difference.

She accessorizes with a large patent belt, and a chunky ring.

Most Improved Award
Apparently this dress Lauren Conrad wore is a one-of-a kind custom dress she designed specifically for this event.

Yes I am just as shocked and skeptical as you are.

The sweetheart necklined maxi dress is multi-coloured with blue, white, taupe and orange.

Lauren accessorized with two gold pendant necklaces, gold bangles, and her ‘Lauren’ ring.

Best Maxi Floral Award
Sophia Bush looks absolutely adorable here. Her strapless floral Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 gown gives her a sophisticated air we are not used to seeing on the actress.

Her taupe clutch, belt and bracelet were a perfect choice.

Best Mini Floral Award
Sophia chose a maxi floral dress, but Brittany Snow opted for a mini floral dress, which is simple gorgeous.

The red peep-toes were a great idea, as they compliment the dress, and really stand out on the blue carpet.

Best Sparkle Award
Teen Choice host Miley Cyrus sparkled in her tiered sequined Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2008 sequined dress.

She accessorized with slouchy taupe suede boots, which helps keep her look young. She also wore three necklaces of varying lengths, including a ‘Miley’, name tag, a butterfly and half a broken heart.

I wonder who has the other half?

The make-up was thankfully light, and her hair was trademark wavy.

All in all, an age appropriated look, for a change, on the red carpet.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Rachel Bilson is striking in this ceramic blue asymmetrical Brian Reyes dress. The actress wore her one-shouldered mini dress, with a pair of strappy khaki heels.

Her nude make-up is fresh and flawless.

Best Hair Award
Vanessa Hudgens’ trademark wavy hair, was last night replaced by sleek iron straight hair.

With her cute dimpled smile the young actress wore a beautiful Catherine Malandrino three-toned tiered strapless dress.

She wore her dress with a two-tone crystal clutch and Mischa Barton favourite Christian Louboutin Mad Mary Janes.

As always, Zanessa stole the show, by cozying up on the red carpet.

‘I’m Not A Girl’ Award
Hayden Panettiere wore this very elegant, and interesting red, pink and white watercolor silk strapless gown, which cinched in at the waist.

The elegance is complete with her up ‘do.

Just OK Award
I love the fuschia skirt on her Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 ensemble and the multi-coloured necklace, but if it was not for those two elements, Kristen Bell would have faded into the background in this ‘Just OK’ ensemble.

I think she was trying to go for an edgier look wearing, than we are used to seeing on her.

She has had better moments on the red carpet.

Most Glamourous Award
Olivia Wilde has an air of regal elegance about her.

Her BCBG Max Azria draped and ruffled ivory dress and grey belt, was accessorized with a gold clutch and peep-toes.

Best Heels Award
This is the second time I have featured Danica Patrick on my blog, and I have noticed that she loves funky footwear.

The Racing Driver’s stand-out gold gladiator heels, complimented her gold studded belt which she wore with her grey/blue strapless dress.

Best Tutu Award
Danity Kane are not known appearing on Best Dressed Lists, but Aundrea Fimbres looks so cute in this strapless Elsie Katz Couture Spring 2008 mini tutu dress.

The dress is made of chrysanthemum brocade with rulled petticoat and hand-formed crystal beaded blossoms from the Spring/Summer 2008 collection.

Best Clutch/Shoes Combo Award
I do love yellow and denim, they always work well together.

Jordin Sparks breaks my rule of wearing jeans on the red carpet, but for this teen event, she is forgiven.

The singer was the most casual at this event, wearing a green layer t-shirt with a pair of dark wash jeans.

I am still pleading with her to remove those streaks in her hair.

06.05.08 Worst Dressed

Costume Institute Gala – Worst Dressed

Most Confusing/Worst Dressed Award
I understand the theme, and I understand that Christina Ricci was going for Wonder Woman here, but the pink ruins what could have been a great Givenchy dress.

Maybe if the pink had been black it would have worked.

Shame.

Not So Golden Girl Award
Mary-Kate Olsen’s custom-made Diane von Furstenberg gold sequined dress had plunging neckline, and a sexy slit, but looks slightly too big on her, which is strange considering the dress is customed.

Her hair is a disaster and ruins anything that is good here.

Worst Hair Award
A pair of straighteners would have sorted that mess right out.

I would have much preferred it if this Calvin Klein dress was a plunge-neck instead of a turtle neck.

Your TV Stylist & Your Red Carpet Stylist Should Meet Award
What is up with Blake Lively lately on the red carpet?

For me she is hitting foul balls left, right and center. Her style started off great on the red carpet, but has been on a downward spiral ever since.

Blake was meant to be the Sarah Jessica Parker of my sisters generation both on and off the red carpet, but it is just not working. She looks about 20 years older than what she is here in this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 strapless gown with feathered detail….Booorring.

As usual, I expected more for young Blake. Whoever is dressing her for Gossip Girl, needs to sprinkle some of that magic onto the red carpet.

Where was Leighton Meester? She would not have looked this bad.

Most Disappointing Award
This one goes out to Victoria Beckham, David of course looks gorgeous.

I love Victoria Beckham so this hurts, but her dress is too see-through and she appears to have nothing underneath, so I feel like I can see her boobs, her face looks too pale and I usually like her hair up but on this occasion, not so much.

It would also have no killed her to have smiled at least once on the red carpet.

Worst Dress/Shoes Combo
Here is another person I was not expecting to see on the worst list.

Katie Holmes looks great from the ankles up. Her vintage Giorgio Armani red sequined beaded bustier and full ball gown skirt from the Fall 1993 collection is amazing as is her Boucheron jewels, but why OH WHY did she wear those blue Louboutins?

Worst Embellishments Award
I was torn on Mischa Barton’s Missoni dress for a while.

I like the chiffon straps, but I am not so keen on the dripping bead work and the gold skirt with a taupe overlay.

Lame Award
Isn’t it amazing how Michelle Trachtenberg has matched her skirt to her gold lame petal nipple covers?

She is not quite rockin’ this vintage YSL dress in a way I had hoped.

Far Too Safe Award
Sarah Michelle Gellar was far too safe with this black shapeless strapless Bottega Veneta dress.

Worst Hair Accessories Award
I know thanks to Gossip Girl headbands are back, but I am not loving the jeweled headband on Amanda Peet. I am also not crazy about her moody Derek Lam Fall 2008 strapless gown with a matching waist belt.

Most Uncomfortable Award
It looks like Eva Amurri can not breath in this Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress.

Eva is a busty lady, and this dress is crushing her lady lumps.

Worst One Sleeve Award
I am NOT a fan of the one long sleeve and this ruins what would have been a great night for Fergie in Calvin Klein.

One-shouldered or even strapless would have worked better.

Worst Use Of Colour Award
Kimora Lee Simmons’ kids did not colour-in her dress. This dress was actually designed like this by Kevan Hall.

Worst Lace Award
I was never a fan of the entire Prada Fall 2008 collection being lace and was hoping not see it on the red carpet.

Unfortunately Tilda Swinton is wearing this Prada Fall 2008 beige lace dress, and to make matters worse, she wore an orange brooch and a green velvet shoes.
