2011 Teen Choice Awards

I just finished watching the 2011 Teen Choice Awards.
Were you able to watch it?

I think it's crazy how these award shows and making posts about them kind of indicate how much time has already passed. Next thing we know, we'll be blogging about the Oscars again = crazy!

Okay, now that I've said that... let's talk about the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Oh wait, I have a story -- so my younger siblings all made accounts on the Teen Choice website so they can vote, and I wanted to vote too so I started making my own account. At the back of my mind, I was already thinking that maybe I can't vote because I'm not a teenager anymore, but when I entered my birth date, the year 1990 was part of the choices = hooray! So, there I was all happy that I can vote... but when I clicked done, they told me I am "not eligible" because I am not a teen. :(

But oh well, it's okay, that didn't stop me from making sure my siblings voted for Harry Potter in every category they were nominated for. ;)

Anyway, okay, red carpet... blue carpet!

Rachel Bilson - white ruffled Chloe dress and Brian Atwood booties

Actress Rachel Bilson arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I loved this look! I think it's very appropriate for the kind of award show that Teen Choice is. I love how fresh, fun, simple, and youthful this look is.

Maggie Q - Max Mara halter sheath and two-tone pumps


She looks fantastic!

Katie LeClerc - BCBG dress and Sergio Rossi heels

Acterss Katie Leclerc arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

Switched at Birth is now one of my favorite TV shows! Katie is very talented... and beautiful!

Elizabeth Banks - J. Mendel dress and Edie Parker clutch


She looks amazing! I love how she made her dress really stand out by keeping everything else simple.

Avril Lavigne - head-to-toe Abbey Dawn

Singer Avril Lavigne arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

Very simple. Nothing crazy. I like it.
I probably won't wear the shoes though, but they are so Avril.

Fergie - Dolce & Gabbana dress and Christian Louboutin heels

Singer Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

Fergie makes the look work!

Demi Lovato - BCBG Max Azria dress and Christian Louboutin shoes

Singer/actress Demi Lovato arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

Not my favorite look, but it doesn't matter. I'm glad that Demi looks beautiful, happy, and healthy! :)
And those shoes = wow!

Blake Lively - Gucci dress, leopard print Louboutin stilettos, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels

Actress Blake Lively arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I actually like the dress, and I think she looks gorgeous as always, but the shoes and the jewelry are making the whole ensemble kinda off.

JoJo - Marco Marco dress with Penelope and Coco pumps


I didn't really see her on the actual show, and I didn't even know she was there until I saw her blue carpet photos. :/ I wish they made her sing (instead of Selena Gomez... peace to all Selena fans, but her voice is nothing compared to JoJo's).

Taylor Swift - Rafael Cennamo halter dress, Ranjana Khan belt, silver Fendi peeptoes, and Neil Lane jewels

Musician Taylor Swift arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I think she looks pretty and her dress is pretty, but I'm not too crazy about this look.

Anyway, I wonder how awkward tonight must've been for Taylor... Joe Jonas was there, along with his other ex-girlfriends Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene (who sat next to Taylor!). Taylor Lautner was there, and we all know Back to December was written for him. Taylor Swift also went out a couple of times with Cory Monteith and Chord Overstreet (who were both there!). And of course, there's this whole Selena dumped her bff Demi to become bffs with Taylor thing. :/

Selena Gomez - Erin Fetherston mini-dress and Brian Atwood stilettos

Singer/actress Selena Gomez arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I am not her biggest fan, but I usually like her style (or her stylist's style, haha!)... but this look is just too all over the place for me. It's not my favorite.

Nina Dobrev - Dolce & Gabbana gingham dress, Dolce & Gabbana clutch, Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, and Ippolita jewels

Actress Nina Dobrev arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I think she's pretty and I love her hair and makeup. The dress is okay, but the print reminds me of an apron. :(

Ashley Greene - black and white Givenchy dress, strappy heels, and Neil Lane jewels

Actress Ashley Greene arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I like her hair and makeup... and yeah, that's it. The rest of the look is just not working, at least in my opinion.

Zooey Deschanel - Miu Miu pumps, tan floral tank dress with black lace trimming

Actress Zooey Deschanel  arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I don't like the look, but I like her!

Zoe Saldana - Lanvin dress, Alexander McQueen shoes, Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Jamie Wolf bangles, Lana earrings, and Carla Amorim ring

Actress Zoe Saldana arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I'm undecided about this look. But I think I dislike it more than I like it. :/

Raven-Symone - black blazer, harem pants, and black pumps

Actress Raven-Symone arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I guess it's okay, but I'm still waiting for her to wear something really "Wow, that's beautiful!".

Nikki Reed - Etro halter dress and a Ferragamo clutch

Actress Nikki Reed arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

This look would've worked... if she wore a different dress. :/

Tyra Banks - Thierry Mugler tube-top body suit

TV personality Tyra Banks arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I don't understand. I am so confused.
Why, Tyra, why???

The Kardashians (and Jenners and Odoms)

(L-R) TV personalities Lamar Jr., Lamar Odom, daughter Destiny, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian arrive at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I think it's cool that they brought Lamar's kids with them.

Khloe - Roberto Cavalli dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Ferragamo clutch, Loren jewelry
Kim - Givenchy dress, Louboutin heels, Bottega Veneta clutch, Lorraine Schwartz jewels
Kourtney - Blaque Label dress, Louboutin shoes, Chanel clutch, Loren jewelry

Apl.de.ap, Fergie, and Taboo -

(L-R) Singers apl.de.ap, Fergie and Taboo of the The Black Eyed Peas arrive at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I love The Black Eyed Peas!

Shane West!!!

Actor Shane West arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I'm gonna watch A Walk to Remember again, haha! ;)

Justin Bieber -

Singer Justin Bieber arrives at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on August 7, 2011 in Universal City, California.

I'm gonna say this now because I don't think I will ever really blog about Justin Bieber. He is talented and I admit, I know the words to his songs... but lately, whenever I see him, all I see is a rich and famous teenager who thinks he is all that. And I think his and Selena's PDA is more nauseating than cute. Sorry, Beliebers and Selena fans, peace! But yeah, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I prefer Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart over Justin and Selena.

Anyway, HARRY POTTER was a huge winner tonight!


I am loving Rupert's "I <3 LA" shirt!

  4. Lovely post.
    Thanks for the comment, not all magazines are in covers only when there's a free gift. Don't you get gifts with magazines?
    I agree I liked seeing Rob Pattison and Zac Efron as real people other than dancing or what have you. I've never seen Twilight though so I wouldn't know what he's like as a vampire. xx

  33. Rachel Bilson and Blake Lively rocked their looks. Avril Lavigne, you have changed so much! Wow! Honestly almost all of them were rocking it except for Tyra and Fergie and Nikki Reed. And maybe sometime in the future we will see Justin dress up instead of down.

  40. Nice! :]
    I did a Teen Choice fashion post too. Check it out!

    I so agree with the Taylor Swift thing. I mean seriously, how awkward was that?! I also hated the fact tha Selena didn't even sit next or near Demi, her supposed "BFF". She chose to sit with Ashley Greene and Taylor Swift. So high school haha.

    I so agree Justin Bieber IS talented, but way too proud of himself. :/
