The Teen Choice Awards have come and gone again… but, as we all know, the true battle was never going to be fought over the surfboard for Choice Selfie Taker. No: it would be decided on the blue carpet. Allow After Nyne to present their alternative Teen Choice Awards…
Best Camouflage Attempt: Sarah Hyland
Sarah took the co-ord trend one step further than usual by matching her crop top and hotpant combo to the wall – but, despite her best efforts, she was in no danger of fading into the background – this shorts suit was just too cute.
Best Impersonation of a Holiday Camp Entertainer: Rita Ora
First Diversity, now Rita? Butlins is seriously stepping up its game.
Chicest Adoption of Underwear as Outerwear: Maia Mitchell
Amidst flesh spilling from ill-considered cut-outs all around her, Maia’s sheer shirt + visible bra ensemble provided a timely reminder that sexy can still be chic, and even sweet!
Worst Supporting Outfit: Britney Spears
Another timely illustration of how underrated a good bra can be when it comes to occasion wear. Oh Britney – surely your pocket money would have stretched to an adult-sized fairy princess costume – and one which hadn’t already been ripped to shreds in the dryer.
Best Micro Mini: Bella Thorne
Breaking that old cleavage + legs rule with both audacity and aplomb.
Best Impromptu TOWIE Audition: Jenn McAllister
First stop global YouTube domination, next stop… Sugar Hut?
Best Appropriation of Granny Chic: Carlson Young
Now THIS is how you do lace. Carlson hops onboard Autumn’s Victoriana train, and straight into the driving seat.
Best Upcycling of a Lego Brick: Willow Shields
This stripe-on-stripe combo must have taken some guts to step out in, but it was a fashion gamble that might have paid off, big-time… if she’d chosen another belt.
Most Bizarre: Alli Simpson
Some stiff competition in this category, courtesy of Flo Rida’s disturbing denim dip-dye and Chloe Moretz’ oddly placed appliquéd snake, but trousers made from maps? Alli had this one in the bag from the beginning.
Overall Winner: Emma Roberts
Emma’s contemporary-yet-classic combination of clashing prints and sleek silhouette hit all the right notes – no bra, belly or knee-baring required.
