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.
