Bucking the trend of dressing down at teen-oriented awards shows, starlets from Ashley Olsen to Zooey Deschanel hit the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards in sexy little evening dresses. The trend of the night was clear: high waisted, with full or bubble skirts, and daring necklines, ranging from the plunging, like Choice Music Breakout winner Rihanna‘s Collection Bebe frock (left), to the intricate, like Choice TV Actress Drama winner Rachel Bilson‘s Zac Posen stunner (right). Presenter Brittany Murphy (middle) also hit it big with her Sinha-Stanic mini-dress paired with slick patent heels, which is shaping up to be a major look for fall. Paired with soft makeup and hair, this look won across the (surf)board!
But guys still played it cool and comfortable on the red carpet– just look at Nick Lachey, who won the hotly contested Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon (Male). He stuck to his signature look of relaxed jeans and an untucked buttondown. And the people have spoken and wouldn’t want it any other way!
