The Shrine Auditorium hosted the most fashionable blue carpet in Hollywood on August 10, where celebrities turned out in their most colorful outfits for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.
From the revival of ‘90s inspired crop tops to the coolest animal print of the moment, along with neutral lips and complex braids, check out the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. The blue carpet may not be the best place for stunning gowns, but it’s certainly a good compass that can help point you towards the newest fashion trends.
The biggest trend on the blue carpet was definitely the crop top, with many young celebrities opting for separates that show off a bit of midriff.
From Kim Kardashian, Jordin Spaks and Nina Dobrev to Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift and Chloë Grace Moretz, crop tops made a big splash at the Teen Choice Awards, proving to be one of the biggest trends of the summer.
Definitely among the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, the all white look feels both summery and sophisticated. Shay Mitchell looked gorgeous in her Misha Collection lace separates, while Kendall Jenner chose an off white Oriett Domenech jumpsuit. Ariana Grande took it one step further by pairing a Georges Chakra Couture dress with white pumps.
While above the knee hemlines seemed to dominated the event, midi skirts also made a trendy appearance on the blue carpet at Shrine Auditorium. Hillary Duff rocked a Sachin & Babi ensemble with a black leather midi skirt, while Chelsea Kane paired a black top with a floral midi.
Definitely one of the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, the jumpsuit wasn’t as common as midi skirts and crop tops, but it definitely made a big impact on the blue carpet. Kendall Jenner opted for an Oriett Domenech creation in off white, and the cowl-neck really made the look even more sophisticated, while Selena Gomez chose a classy black Saint Laurent tuxedo jumpsuit, paired with a black top and gold heels.
Forget about putting your keys and your wallet in your purse, most stars at the Teen Choice Awards opted for clutches so small that they could barely hold a lipstick. The most important thing about the variety of clutches, along with their shrinking size, was the color selection, which made most blend in with the look instead of stand out, from Nina Dobrev to Jennifer Lopez.
While separates were clearly one of the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, Chloë Grace Moretz and Nina Dobrev opted for matching shorts, in the same prints as their tops. The star of “Kick Ass” and “Carrie” opted for a Fausto Puglisi ensemble, while “The Vampire Diaries” actress Nina Dobrev chose Vionnet.
Definitely the most trendy animal print, zebra showed up on the blue carpet in two stunning looks. Kim Kardashian rocked the crop top trend pairing a black Balmain top with a zebra print skirt, while Zendaya paired a black and white shirt with thigh-high black lace boots.
One of the most surprising beauty choices was also among the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Keeping makeup subtle and natural, many celebs chose a neutral lip, including Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, and Lea Michelle, while Taylor Swift, Odeya Rush and Cat Deely stuck to stronger shades of orange and berry.
While the smokey eye makeup might be too dramatic for such a fun and playful event, many young stars sported semi-smokey eyes, including Lucy Hale and Chloë Grace Moretz. The subtle look was a perfect match for the muted lip colors seen on the blue carpet, looking young while still sophisticated.
While only a few celebrities opted for updos and most went for a natural look with their hair, braids are also one of the best 10 trends from the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Nina Dobrev rocked a messy rope braid, while “Pretty Little Liars” stars Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell chose equally dramatic looks, a twisted French braid hybrid and a big braid combo.
