Whoever you are, this red carpet is about to make you feel really old. But if youth culture is the bellwether of fashion, looking at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards red carpet tells us that some trends are definitely going to be sticking around for a while. Crop tops are going nowhere. We lost track of all the belly slivers, cut-outs, peplums, and metallic, pointy-toed shoes on this red carpet. They may go away eventually, but it won’t be happening this year.
The children are our future. Let’s check out what they’re wearing:
Lea Michele looks like Judy Jetson in lingerie.
Kaley Cuoco Sweeting looked cute in her little shorts suit.
But then they sprayed green slime all over it.
Acacia Brinley is ready for the club from the waist up. From the waist down: Fancy prom. She’s good for anything.
Lia Marie Johnson wore cutouts and pointy metallic shoes. We love the shape of her cutouts, and the color of this dress.
Willow Shields brought her crop top and pointy pewter shoes.
Jaylen Barron paired her crop top with a sarong-style skirt. There’s a lot going on here, and the varying hem shapes are competing for attention.
Laura Marano has a cute shiny purse, and we like her orange-red manicure.
Temara Melek is actually making this work. Love the shoes.
Gigi Hadid is officially that cool girl in high school who DNGAF about clothes and still looked better than anybody.
Bella Thorne picked a great color, even though she’s wearing gold shoes. Her stylists tend to send her out looking over-styled like a prom queen, which is a shame because when she shows up with undone hair and minimal makeup, she’s always one of the most gorgeous people around.
Zoey Deutch is unimpeachable in this cool printed short set. She totally sits at Gigi Hadid’s lunch table.
Jayma Mays is trying to distract us from those gold shoes by wearing 8 prints at once. It’s not working.
