Many more PYTs—and one handsome lad—took to the ‘blue’ carpet at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (August 13) in LA with a range of creative looks that had youth on their side.
Katie Stevens: Although the rich, emerald-green hue of Katie’s Styland sexy suiting was eye-catching, I do believe it more readily exposed the jacket and trousers to some slight fit issues. As for those black pumps, the look would have been better served by a sandal. However, her L’Dezen by Payal Shah diamond earrings fit right in.
Georgie Flores: The ‘Famous in Love’ actress’s Alice McCall frock playfully riffed on polka dots and floral with a hint of sultriness in the sheer lace and strappy sandals.
Naya Rivera: Call it a Canadian tuxedo, but I’m calling this all-denim statement utterly cool. I loved seeing Naya in this Marques’ Almeida Spring 2017 ensemble that intriguingly paired pouf sleeves and ripped jeans with her signature sexy finish in the makeshift plunge neckline. This is how to take a throwback look and make it look completely relevant—and fun.
Cole Sprouse: Making a strong case for wearing two shirts, Cole had me at hello with his Prada Spring 2018 look that had spirited verve without going overboard. I love the boldness of the black-and-white, graphic shirt jacket paired over the graffiti, striped button-down that made perfect sense for Teen Choice. Jimmy Choo ‘Holden’ boots finished the ensemble on a polished note.
Camila Mendes: Pretty in pink, this Longchamp Spring 2017 girly-cute, floral frock made for a striking contrast with Camila’s raven-haired locks. However, I’ll have to admire it from ankles up, as the nude platforms compromised the look.
Janel Parrish: With ruching and cutouts defining that traditional ode to sexiness, this Hamel dress is nothing we haven’t seen before—and with her long wavy locks, it took on a bit of a dated effect. Stuart Weitzman white sandals rounded out the monochromatic look.
Emeraude Toubia: The flourish of colourful blooms on this Nicolas Jebran Spring 2017 wrap-style romper left me with somewhat of a craving the same wash of colour in her styling. Would you have preferred a bright lip and vibrant shoe over her taupe Christian Louboutin heels, or did you like the tonal mood?
Melissa Benoist: The ‘Supergirl’ star was more fashionable villain in her Zeynep Arçay Spring 2017 two-piece, leather look that oozed with a darker sense of intrigue.
Peyton List: I appreciate her daring embrace of such a saturated, fiery orange hue in this Bec + Bridge top and trousers. However, I believe the fabric made it far more susceptible to highlighting every tailoring and fit flaw. Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind Crystal’ sandals perfectly accompanied the monochromatic look.
Aisha Dee: This Vladimiro Gioia frock was a bit of a conundrum to me. Waist down, it presented as rather twee and maybe even a bit too sugary. But, the plunge neckline put it in all-grown-up territory. The grommet belt I won’t try to make sense of. Stuart Weitzman sandals completed the dress.
Pepi Sonuga: I would call this butterfly-bedecked Lie Sangbon design just as much a sculptural piece as a garment. It did leave me wondering how she was able to take a seat for the show.
Madelaine Petsch: While there was something whimsical about this Genny Spring 2017 outfit with its icy-blue metallic embroidery and floaty sleeves, it was cut rather short and it didn’t leave me convinced that this was the right palette for Madelaine’s alabaster complexion. It was her flame curls that were most captivating here.
Chloe Lukasiak: Chloe wore a Leilou by Aleksandra Dojcinovic Spring 2017 peacock-embellished frock. Aside from the visible nude bra, I cannot say I was particularly crazy about the peachy-nude palette on Chloe either.
Kalani Hilliker: With the audacious attitude we’d expect in a Moschino look, this polka-dot suit would not be missed. I liked the contrast of her magenta clutch and Aldo shoes, but I would have preferred to see the jacket buttoned for a less bra-forward look.
Kendall Vertes: Also rocking the sexy pantsuit, Kendall likewise made a statement in bright red with a sultry corset peeking from underneath her jacket. However, when I remind myself that she is but 14, I wonder why she didn’t wait a few years for this look and embrace something a bit more youthful and fun.
