What do you wear to an awards show where the average audience member is under the legal drinking age, the main attraction is the cast of the “Twilight” film series and the awards are rainbow surfboards? The correct answer is whatever you please.
Young stars flooded the pink carpet at the recent Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre in anything and everything from jeans and leather pants to cheeky cocktail dresses and skintight minis. Justin Bieber arrived in casual white pants and a camouflage tee, while girlfriend Selena Gomez sported a Dsquared2 Resort 2013 flirty pink pleated mini. On the dressier side were Choice Action Actress Zoe Saldana in a matching patterned crop top and skirt by Jonathan Saunders and “Glee” star Lea Michele, shining in a metallic Versace mini.
Power couple Ellen DeGeneres (who won the award for Choice Comedian) and Portia de Rossi stood out as a fun, stylish pair who looked chic but didn’t take themselves too seriously. DeGeneres chose a menswear-inspired look in a plain V-neck tee, black blazer, khaki pants and a Repp stripe tie belt. De Rossi appeared laid back but elegant in a black tunic tucked into shorts and strappy heels.
