Dance Moms Stars' Takeover at the Teen Choice Awards
Hair and makeup: check! Maddie Ziegler, an 11-year-old star of Lifetime’s Dance Moms, gets primped for Sunday night’s Teen Choice Awards in L.A. Up for choice reality show (they lost to Keeping Up with the Kardashians), the starlet was joined by her sister Mackenzie, 10, and mom Melissa Gisoni for the big night. Still, they had fun!
MEET AND GREET
Lucky ladies! Maddie and Mackenzie have their first star sighting on the red carpet, cozying up to choice female country artist winner .
Another winning moment happens as the sisters meet choice TV drama actress winner Lucy Hale. “Being on the carpet was amazing!” Maddie tells PEOPLE.
MAMA KNOWS BEST
The girls take a break from stargazing to pose for a photo with mom. “I’m just so proud and blessed that my children have this talent,” Gisoni told reporters on the red carpet. “It does blow my mind, because I have no talent! I really don’t, and I’m okay with that.”
Mackenzie makes things official, signing a Teen Choice Awards surfboard before heading into the show. Preparations for the big day included a fitting with stylist Lo Von Rumpf, who helped the girls get extra-gorgeous. “I love a princess dress,” Mackenzie tells PEOPLE. “I was so excited that I got to try a new color since I usually wear pink.”
Before heading into the show, the sisters take one last (very colorful!) pic with Teen Choice Awards hostess Sarah Hyland and Dance Moms pals Kendall and Nia.
