2011 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet: Part 2

Welcome back to the Teen Choice Awards! After you’ve refreshed your memory on Part 1 of the TCA red carpet, come take a stroll to Tackytown.

Shiny and fun, with some beautiful metallic colors. Usually I beg for more jewelry, but it’s the TCAs – more bling would have brought this dress to a too-formal place. Hair and makeup are relaxed and beautiful.

Apparently, brightly colored leather dresses are all the rage (Blake Lively wore one to the TCAs as well). Although I feel like I’m constantly begging Ms. Banks to touch up her roots, I love this color on her. It really pops, especially with the matching lipstick. The accessories are a little uninspired, though.

With the sole exception of Drake, I never expect Degrassi alum to look good on the red carpet. So Nina blew me out of the water with this adorable little modern Dorothy dress. Great accessories – love those navy satin pumps. I like that she’s not overdressed, not underdressed: very event-appropriate.

I’ve given up all hope that Taylor will ever wear anything interesting, ever.

The Community star looks simple but chic; perhaps a little too dark for the event. Love the badass shoes, but I can’t decide if they don’t work with the rest of the outfit or bring an otherwise plain outfit to an awesome place.

You know what? For Khloe Kardashian, this is a victory. For once, it’s not too tight or too vulgar. It’s desperate for attention, sure, but so are the Kardashians.

The proportions are just terrible, from the high neck to the short skirt. It makes her look much shorter and wider than she actually is. The severe hair is never good for her, as it tends to make her look like she’s had even more plastic surgery than she has.

Say it with me, dear readers: A shower curtain is not a dress.

There’s really no reason for your shoes to look like that, darling. Some women are in Lanvin dresses and Louboutins – you could at least not cuff your jeans.

ZOOEY DESCHANEL // dress by Miu Miu

If she could lose this ridiculous porcelain doll hair and makeup she’s stuck to for years, she might have a chance at looking stylish. The dress is cute (if way, WAY too immature for a woman in her thirties) and the shoes are funky, but the white face, pink cheeks, red lips and barrel curls make her look stuck in the 1950s, and not in a cute vintage way.

He looks good, but there’s something about a zip-up sweater that really doesn’t belong at this event, even if it is a nice sweater.

Who are you, and how many Muppets had to die for you to make this dress?

NIKKI REED // dress by Etro

Hate this print. Like, HATE. She looks like she’s wearing an oriental rug.

ASHLEY GREENE // dress and shoes by Givenchy

Ashley is a teeny-tiny woman, but I think this colorblocking and the placement of that belt are really not doing her any favors. She might be just a bit broad-shouldered for such an athletic-inspired dress.

Lose the fake tan, the hair extensions, half the bangles, the back of the skirt, and the shoes, and this might be something that would not burn out my retinas. Maybe.
