The 2014 Teen Choice Awards went down last night, the red carpet of which we brought to you via liveblog. There were some good outfits, some great outfits, and–as per usual–some pretty awful ones. We brought you our best dressed list earlier, but stars like Hilary Duff, Sarah Hyland and one of the Kardashians just plain disappointed us, so now we must give you our worst dressed list of this year’s Teen Choice Awards.
So, I’m docking points from Hilary Duff because of her age. Hear me out: it has nothing to do with being “able” to wear certain items at any age. I have absolutely loved seeing women of all ages wear tight leather, crop tops, and all manner of fun stuff. My main issue with Hilary’s outfit is that it’s so poorly put together, and I feel like at her age and experience level with walking red carpets, she should know better by now than to mix an ill-fitting halter Sachin & Babi Noir crop top of a matte material with floral appliques with a tight leather vintage skirt that is super shiny. It just looks awkward.
It looks like there’s a black bar censoring Chloe Grace Moretz‘s chest. Also, I love crop tops, but this is a tube top. Tube tops are a no-go, friends.
I wanted to like Bella Thorne‘s dress–a custom Candies frock by Johnny Wujek–so much because that pattern is so stunning, but the bodice is so odd. Had it been a sweetheart neckline, this would have been much prettier, but the illusion panel with stretchy nude material has that creepy extra-flesh effect that can only detract from outfits.
It always bums me out with huge stars like Sarah Hyland don’t seem to get their clothing tailored so it fit me properly. If I had the money to do that, I’m pretty sure my entire wardrobe would be customized to my body. Instead, this Marc Jacobs Resort 2015 look feels rather baggy.
I want to like Willow Shields‘ pattern mixing, but I just can’t. Had she chosen two patterns of separate color schemes, then perhaps the pattern clash would have been more appealing and less…painful on my eyes. The tailored pants look absolutely wonderful on her, though; I just wish she had paired it with a white crop top or button down.
Sasha Pieterse‘s outfit looks like something American Apparel would market to high schoolers, but it was actually made by Vera Wang, so that’s…disappointing.
Surprisingly, Kendall Jenner was the least well-dressed out of the Kardashians who were at the Teen Choice Awards. Kylie looked understated and excellent; Kim looked “meh” but overall decent; Kendall just looked overwhelmed by this Oriett Domenech white…mess. The top has no discernible shape while the pants look like they belong on the background models for a yoga informercial. And it doesn’t help that her nude sandals make it look like she’s barefoot.
And the “I Wish I’d Made It To Sochi 2014″ Award goes to Kimberly Perry.
Besides Ariana Grande‘s white dress from Georges Chakra being a different shade of white from her shoes–a thing that I cannot help but be annoyed by–it’s just odd to pick a dress that has accents on the top portion, then cover it almost entirely with your hair.
I’m usually more keen on Zendaya‘s style, but this dress looks a bit like something one might find in the Spring Fling section of Deb. Her bob is spot-on, though.
Unfortunately, her Emanuel Ungaro look later wasn’t much better. This directly resembles the “Sexy Zebra” Halloween costume half the girls in our college dorm did during my freshman year.
Like Heather said in her original liveblog, this Dior dress gives Lucy Hale the silhouette of a lampshade. This looks straight up uncomfortable.
Lea Michele‘s outfit reminds me of the intro of a science video from the 1990s, or perhaps the rug in a “cool” third grade teacher’s classroom.
Gold on gold was not a great look for Katie Stevens, but I will commend her for taking a risk with all these different textures in one outfit. Perhaps it didn’t pay off this time, but in the future, I think she’ll be a lot of fun to watch on the red carpet.
