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.

Mag-Rack: Katie Holmes Covers Elle Magazine (US) – August 2012

You would have to be living under a rock not to know that actress Katie Holmes has officially filed for divorce from her husband of six years, actor Tom Cruise. In fact, rumours are rampant that the couple reached a divorce settlement in less than two weeks, which by all accounts is a record for Hollywood. While no official details have been released concerning the obviously very private personal matter, the soon-to-be-single stylish actress-turned-fashion-designer and mother of one graces the cover of Elle Magazine, on newsstands in the US starting July 17th.

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.

Mag Rack: Freida Pinto Covers Flaunt Magazine for July 2012

Fabulous Freida

Proving once and for all in a pictorial for US Flaunt July 2012 that there is more to her than just playing the damsel-in-distress with the exotic looks. These photos bring to mind the blaxploitation era heroines portrayed by actress by Pam Grier in the 1970s, a no-nonsense crime-fighting sexy woman who was not to be messed around with. Well done Freida! This was totally unexpected. I hope this helps people see her in a different light and that we get to see her in more diverse roles from here on.

Freida Fabulous

The Red Carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globes Had Us Seeing Some Serious Bridal Trains…

HERE COMES THE BRIDE

Kate Beckinsale

Jessica Chastain

Kathleen Robertson

Shailene Woodley

Jessica Alba

Julie Bowen

Charlize Theron

Piper Perabo

Jessica Biel

Busy Phillipps

Amanda Peet

Andie MacDowell

There was RED and there was BLUE but if you are a bride-to-be or a mother of the bride-to-be well, you were in luck last night because “bridal” was certainly trending on the red carpet at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. From the Modern to the flat of Matronly,  there certainly was something for everyone so feel free to draw your inspiration from what you saw on display. In a sea of statement gowns and sleek dresses, the wedding gown look as seen above stood out (we’re sure Vera Wang would be so proud) as a clear trend and while we loved some and turned our faces away at the others we can honestly conclude that last night saw some of the best fashion displays on red carpet in a very long time. Well done ladies.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everybody who joined us LIVE via Twitter last night for making it such a memorable night of lively fashion commentary and discussion. A special thanks for our friends @zimbio, @Polyvore ,@DImageBoutique & @KMartFashion

Also thank you to @dkny‘s PR Girl who tweeted us this message:

Evan vs Zoe vs Camilla: Who Wore It Best? Don’t You Just Love It When Everybody Shows Up Wearing GUCCI?

BRIDESMAIDS?

Or hostesses? I just can’t get over the fact that these three ladies showed up at the same event looking like they had been calling each other up all day deciding on what outfit to wear. You know like back in highschool when you and all your girlfriends would co-ordinate your outfits and accessories? Ah! The memories…
