Style and Fashion at the Teen Choice Awards 2012 – the Good, the Bad and the What on Earth???







WHO: In chronological order…Nina Dobrev, Selena Gomez, Kat Graham, Lea Michele, Jordan Sparks, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Will.i.am, Ian Somerhalder, Hayden Panettiere, Debbie Ryan, Peyton List, Demi Lovato, Jojo, Victoria Justice, Bella Thorne, Joe Jonas, Rebecca Black, Tia and Tamera Mowry, NO DOUBT.

WHAT: Teen Choice Awards 2012

WHEN: July 22nd

WHERE: Universal City, California

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: I finally see Selena’s Gomez’s fashion potential, in the midst of try-hards and die-hards she along with (fashion favourite Nina Dobrev in J. Mendel) and Kat Graham managed to set the fashion standard for the night in colourful well-styled looks. Standing out for all the wrong reasons was Demi Lovato in Falguni and Shane Peacock because she not only looked like she was channeling Fergie, she seemed to be downright aping her from head-toe-toe. I have seen many people (Kim Kardashian, Fergie, Kat Graham, Jennifer Lopez, Sonam Kapoor, Malaika Arora etc.) pull off the Falguni and Shane Peacock look flawlessly without looking like they were trying to be someone else but Lovato threw me for a loop. Joe Jonas looked like his outfit was dry clean only but he realised that only after jumping into a pool and looked perplexed as it dried off on the red carpet. Taylor Swift who usually wows me with her style selections let me down by playing it safe in a pale monokini style ice-skater dress by Maria Lucia Hohan, still love her though. Debbie Ryan and Hayden Panettiere (who did a dis-service to a Zuhair Murad dress but wore the best shoes of the night) looked like they were moderators at a prom being attended by Peyton List…among others. Dress your age kids, enjoy your youth! The Mowry twins looked radiant. Apart from my best dressed picks, I truly appreciated seeing Gwen Stefani and her NO DOUBT bandmates (below) walk the red carpet dressed in almost-all back like punk-rock royalty, needing no category of their own.

Dionne Bromfield Leads the Top 3 Looks from the London Premiere of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

WHO: Marion Cotillard, Dionne Bromfield & Anne Hathway

WHAT: The Dark Knight Rises Premiere

WHEN: July 18th, 2012

WHERE: London, UK

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: The fashion quotient was definitely higher at the London premiere of ‘TDKR’ last evening where we saw leading ladies in their best designer duds, braving chilly summer rain to walk the red carpet. Anne Hathaway and her pixie haircut continued with the goddess-like theme she began at the New York city premiere, showing up in a fluid flower-and-jewel-encrusted-neckline gown by Gucci while co-star Marion Cotillard decided to go the colour-blocking route in Christian Dior Couture. I still don’t fancy Hathaway’s style but I have to say this is an improvement from her NYC look. Kudos to her for opting for nude makeup in spite of the newly cropped haircut, it truly is a daring move not attempted on a major star since Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron boldly went there a few years back. Cotillard also wins fashion points for daringly blending four-shades orange successfully into one look. Also noteworthy on the red carpet was British singer and Amy Winehouse God-daughter Dionne Bromfield who walked the red carpet in a cutesy fringe accented LWD paired with blue peep-toe pumps and her million-watt smile.

The Look of the Day: Ashley Tisedale in a LWD by Camilla and Marc at the ‘Step Up Revolution’ Premiere

The Look of the Day: Ashley Tisedale in a LWD by Camilla and Marc at the Step Up Revolution Premiere

WHO: Ashley Tisedale

WHAT: Step Up Revolution Premiere

WHEN: July 17th, 2012

WHERE: LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: If perfection had an image, it would look just like this. Tisedale is really coming into her stylish own, either that or she has a very good stylist. Hair…the highlights and extensions are age appropriate, fun and super sleek. Dress…even Australian design duo Camilla and Marc would agree that she did them proud in their chic strapless white mini dress. Style Candy…snakeskin fifi clutch by Lulu Guinness, silver jewellery and zebra stripped strappy heels polished off her brilliant look and guarantees that she will sit pretty on my front-page until another fashionista comes along and one-ups her fashion home-run. Young, Fresh, Relevant. Bravo Ms. Tisedale!

Fashion from the Red Carpet at ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Premiere in New York City


1. Zoe Kravitz in Emilio Pucci
2. Alicia Quarles (Fashionwidget’s Best Dressed Pick)
3. Michelle Trachtenberg’s Style Stalker
4. Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior Couture
5. Hailee Steinfeld in Marc Jacobs
6. Anne Hathaway in Prabal Gurung

There is edgy and then there is going over the edge. That said, I was not a fan of anything I saw on the ‘TDKR’ red carpet, Anne Hathaway looked angelic but her style has never been my cup of tea. Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz’s daughter Zoe was over-exposed and an E! Correspondent stole major thunder in a simple LBD. The premiere for the upcoming summer blockbuster was held Monday evening in New York City. Hoping for a better style outlook at the upcoming London premiere.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Deepika Padukone Opts for a Sabyasachi Saree for the ‘Cocktail’ Premiere


Stylishly seen here on the cover of EYE (a section of the Indian Financial Express), former Indian supermodel turned actress Deepika Padukone is riding a tidal wave of popularity with the success of her recent films ‘desi boyz’ & the newly released ‘cocktail’ not to mention countless magazine covers that almost rival her days as a supermodel as well as numerous appearances promoting her brands. One such occasion was that of the world premiere of ‘cocktail’ in Mumbai last week where she debuted her newly curvy figure in a stunning 2012 bridal collection Sabyasachi saree. Previously in the week, she promoted the film wearing casual looks from Halston Heritage and Diesel, in all of which she looked on-trend and poised. See collages below for details on where to buy the looks.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Imran Khan Covers Filmfare Magazine – August 2012

Looking too cool for school in a classic white tee, faded jeans & wayfarer sunglasses Indian actor Imran Khan covers filmfare magazine’s first issue for the month of August 2012.

I love Imran Khan (Fashionwidget’s choice for best dressed bollywood male 2011) the actor and the stylish bloke. I have not seen enough of him this year on the red carpet but wherever & whenever the reclusive actor has shown up, he has delivered the style as expected even at somewhere as simple as the airport. He just knows how to bring something special to the traditional suit look and I think that’s the style factor I appreciate most about him. His wife Avantika’s style (pictured below) is a different tale entirely but she is a star-wife and is free to dress any way she chooses to. I appreciate those who try to make fashion statements but if they do not care for fashion then they should be left alone. While we’re on fashion statements, I’m hoping that new beard Khan has been sporting is for an upcoming movie role…it keeps growing and looks a bit creepy. Nothing against bearded people or beards or anything.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Actress Deepika Padukone’s Style Tour Begins


She has just begun a whirlwind promotional tour for her upcoming film ‘Cocktail’ so we are guaranteed to see more fashion risk taking from the Bollywood showstopper. Preliminary reports are good. I have to say I wasn’t expecting to see her so elegantly decked out in a Sabyasachi Mukherjee lehenga saree on Sunday as she walked the red carpet at the Filmfare South Awards. The tie-dye skinny jean and tank top look seems in line with the fashion sense of her ‘Cocktail’ character (at least based on what I picked up from the trailers) and as we know actresses tend to dress up as their characters during the film’s promotion. She seemed to be back to being Deepika in a jumpsuit, black peep toe pumps and fuchsia clutch when she stepped out for more promotional duties with her co-stars Saif Ali-Khan (pictured) & Diana Penty (not pictured). What I like about her style is the fact that while she never seems to be trying so hard she never stops short of reminding us of her days as a supermodel with her choice of fashion statements.



Even as she graces the cover of Women’s Health India July/August 2012 gone is her usual high-octane style replaced with a more resort/beach carefree look in line with ‘Cocktail’ tentatively scheduled to hit theatres on July 13th. Yes, Ms. Padukone is in full ‘Cocktail’ promo mode and (while it may be asking for too much) I hope she lands the upcoming covers of L’Officiel and Hi! Blitz magazines just for the sake of glamour. 馃檪

Best Looks from the Red Carpet + Backstage at the 2012 BET Awards in Los Angeles

Beyonce + Nicki Minaj


Mariah + Monica + Cissy Houston + LaLa



Eva Pigford + Selita Ebanks + Toccara Jones


Lola Munroe + Angela Bassett + Kerry Washington

From what I saw, the afore-mentioned celebrities were the only ones who represented for fashion at the 2012 BET Awards, which took place in Los Angeles last evening. The men had it easy (don’t they always?) All they had to do was show up in jeans and a t-shirt or a suit. The women? Hmm! Boy, did they try to make all kinds of fashion statements in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and lengths all night long, with performers changing into as many as two or three outfits through the course of the night. For the most part they were okay fashion statements. Kerry Washington, who is one of my favourite fashionistas played it too safe in a beige bustier and black pencil skirt. I was pleasantly surprised by Toccara Jones who looked pretty stylish in print, Selita Ebanks knocked it out of the ballpark in a semi-see-through floor length Falguni & Shane Peacock (she’s definitely becoming a fashion favourite), Beyonce shined in a thigh-high slit sleek yellow dress paired with a statement silver belt, Kim Kardashian and Eva Pigford also impressed in sizzling white numbers. Angela Bassett kept in classy in an appropriately short lacy lbd paired with peep-toe pumps and her stylishly signature pixie haircut. I really loved Lola Munroe’s one-shouldered fitted gown by Gerardo Reyes but couldn’t understand the necklace on her head which threatened to unbalance her nearly perfect look.

Hollywood Fashion Update: Salma Hayek and Blake Lively Light Up the ‘Savages’ Premiere in California

Blake Lively (left) never ceases to amaze me, the fact that she never uses a stylist yet manages to pick the right outfit and styles herself perfectly each time she steps out on the red carpet is quite commendable. Here she is at the premiere of her latest film ‘Savages’ in a swirly striped beige and black figure accentuating Zuhair Murad, sensibly paired with her Veronica Lake-esque hair-do and on trend red lips, in fact only one other person came close to stealing her fashion thunder on the red carpet Monday evening in Westwood, California and that was her co-star Salma Hayek in a green floor-length-sequins-embellished Gucci number. Fashion on.
