The 2014 Teen Choice Awards red carpet run down:

Kim Kardashian looked smoking in cropped leather top and zebra print bodycon skirt by Balmain. The shoes were a bit off but she always slays. Hot mama!

I did not recognize Zendaya Coleman in this pink halter cut out dress but she looks smashing here.

Jennifer Lopez presented an award in a lace green Elie Saab iteration. Hot mama!

Jordin Sparks works out, hard! She showed off her body in a matching print crop top ensemble.

Kendall Jenner was drool-worthy in a white elegant jumpsuit with sheer details. She killed it.

My gal Kylie Jenner served side eye in a crop top and wrap skirt ensemble. She’s always different. I like.

Bella Thorne was a dream to behold in a Johnny Wujek strapless flare dress. Love this print. Stunning!

Hailee Steinfield wore a lace floral print dress by Elie Saab.

Taylor Swift looked demure but playful in a green dress paired with Charlotte Olympia yellow sandals.

Selena Gomez looked simply chic in a black jumpsuit with satin lapels. Loved it.

Lea Michelle was one of my favourites in a multicolour cami dress by Fausto Puglisi. Hot!

Sarah Hyland was also in the mood for a LBD. She skewed a black sequin number with strappy sandals. Pretty.

Nina Dobrev’s matching print shorts and crop top were on my must have list. The pink Kurt Geiger pumps sealed this hot combo together. Yes!

My favourite ‘Liar’, Shay Mitchell added burgundy lips to a white sexy lace ensemble. Reminds me of a look Kim has done before but hot nevertheless.

Lucy Hale however brought it! I loved her deep plunge blood orange mini skater dress paired with £437 Brian Atwood Abell Sandals. Gorgeous Pretty Little Liar 😉 

Ariana Grande wore a little white dress and cream YSL pumps. Her dress had cute embellished details which were unfortunately hidden by her hair. Boring.

Chloe Grace Moretz served toned abs in a printed crop top and shorts ensemble. The crop fashion is definitely here to stay. Hot!

Aisha Dee gave me curl envy in a cream cut out dress and brown sandals. Pretty.

Janel Parrish worked a crop top and maxi skirt in differed shades of blue.

Hilary Duff was all about black on black leather.

Odeya Rush worked a red lace strapless gown and Louboutin pumps. Hot.

Kat Deeley’s orange floral mini dress was cute but she looked a little too orange for me…


 Chelsea Kane looked chic in a black print maxi skirt and sleeveless top.

Faking It actress Rita Volk tried on a pink cut out number for size.

Cher Lloyd’s embellished black sheer top and shorts  were alright.

Sasha Pieterse wore a gingham print draped dress and white strappy heels.

Emily Osment was in a white cut out pencil dress.

Which looks kept your boat afloat? Who sank it?

Pray tell!

This week’s hottest looks:

Zendaya Coleman showed off toned legs in a beige ensemble while leaving the 106 and Park Studios in NYC. These colours look beautiful on Zendaya.


Kim Kardashian channels vintage glam in an all black ensemble while out and about. That Saint Laurent blazer is to die for. She looks pretty here. Loving the vintage hair as well.

Selena Gomez adds edge with a ripped pair denim trousers to a cool blue jumper. Love this look. She certainly looks curvy here. Nice!

The girls of ‘Think Like A man Too’ are keeping busy! The stepped out to promote their movie at the ABC studios.

La La Anthony looked fab in a red trouser suit. I prefer this hair on her. 

Taraji P Henson looked pretty in a paisley print pleated skirt and blouse and blue sandals. Lovely.

Meagan Good wore a matching crop top and pencil skirt.

Gabrielle Union offset a turquoise dress with a red Prada tote. Hot.

Lady Gaga had a fashionable moment as she stepped out of her NYC apartment. C all me crazy but I love this dressing gown, hot sandals and curly wig old school vibe she’s serving here. Glamourous.

Eva Longoria arrived in style for the Taormina Film Fest in a leather ruffle bib dress and Louboutin sandals. Adorable.

Kat Graham looked summer ready in  neon coral  skirt and top at Empathy Rocks A Spring Into Summer Bash Fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Loving this look especially the eyeshadow.

Jennifer Lopez looked smashing on the Tonight Show in a £105 White Solace London Byredo Knee Length Dress with Plunge Neck.

Chrissy Teigen smized for her life at the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards. Get into the summer time face makeup! Gorgeous. I’d wear this in a heartbeat.

Cheryl Cole and the other judges kicked off the new series of X Factor UK. They all looked fab at the Manchester auditions. Cheryl paired a ruffle structured skirt with a white top and metallic strappy sandals.

Melanie Brown works out! She showed off her toned gams in an Anthony Vaccarello Gold Studded Viscose Blend Skirt which she paired with Louboutin nude pumps.  On the fence about the length of this skirt.

Sarah-Jane Crawford and her signature red lip also hit the carpet. I love her black and white ensemble. Simply chic.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner strike a pose at Nordstrom after book signing duties. Kylie wore a strapless navy peplum romper and Kendall rocked a lace inset skater dress. Loved both looks.

They had earlier hosted the Much Music Awards. Kylie looked sultry in a beaded orange Nicolas Jebran mini dress while Kendall was risqué in a high double slit embellished white Fausto Puglisi dress. A bit too much or just enough for an 18 year old?  Her face is pretty though!

That’s it for the day’s looks!

Who topped your list?
