A week from Monday all of the hottest of young Hollywood are expected to descend upon the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. There has been a whole new crop of young talent that seems to have really gained steam with their careers over the last year and I am really excited to see what they just might bring to this red carpet. Looking ahead at the wishes I have today they are pretty much exactly what I expect to see stars to bring to this red carpet, both the young stars and the more established names. Auli’i Cravalho was plucked out of obscurity to play the title role in the animated feature Moana, since then she had a short run on a new GLEE-like series called RISE for NBC, which sadly got canceled. She is expected to voice Moana again in next years Wreck it Ralph sequel Ralph Breaks The Internet and is expected to be one of the many presenters who will take to the stage at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards. When it comes to her style I don’t really know that much about it. I went for something chic and feminine for Auli’i to wear this year with this magenta and red silk Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2018 RTW one sleeve mini dress which features a slashed shoulder and an a-line tiered skirt. I do think that Auli’i would look very chic and flirty wearing this dress for the Teen Choice Awards and I think that chic waves tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of nude Sam Edelman ‘Ariella’ patent leather sandals all would add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble. Elizabeth Olsen actually made me a little excited about her style for the first time since she burst onto the scene in 2011 and was one of my ones to watch in 2012. While she was out promoting Avengers: Infinity War wearing incredibly chic looks from Alexandre Vauthier and Oscar de la Renta I started to re-develop my girl crush on Elizabeth and I hope that if she is at the Teen Choice Awards, where she is nominated for Choice Action Movie Actress for Avengers, that she brings the chic yet again. I went to a brand that I really wouldn’t normally think of for the Teen Choice Awards red carpet with this black and white Brandon Maxwell Fall 2018 RTW ensemble which features a white twist bottom sequin covered t-shirt and black skinny jeans, but I think that it is the perfect meshing of Elizabeth’s glamorous style, Brandon Maxwell’s structure and drama, and the inherent ease of the Teen Choice Awards. I wouldn’t do a whole lot with the styling either adding a sleek ponytail, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ patent leather pointed toe pumps to really make this a simple yet chic moment on the red carpet. Karen Gillan also stars in Avengers: Infinity War but her Teen Choice Award nomination this year for Choice Comedy Movie Actress comes from her performance in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. I really do wonder what Karen would wear on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. This is her first nomination and with the other nominees in the category I honestly have no idea who may win. When it comes down to it all of the looks that I have loved from Karen are way to dramatic, formal, and avant garde for this red carpet. She loves Valentino Couture, Thom Browne, and Monse. None of those brands really scream Teen Choice Awards so I went to Prada, not really a TCA norm brand either but I think that this pistachio, brown, and black printed Prada Resort 2019 mini dress which features a turtleneck collar with long sleeves and a logo patch on the chest. This dress is easy and flirty and I think is the type of elevated look that we could very well see from Karen on this red carpet, if she chooses to attend. I think that a sleek side parted ponytail, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Gianvito Rossi strappy d’orsay sandals all would really ensure that this is an incredibly chic moment for Karen to rock on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet. Rising country superstar Maren Morris has three nominations at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards and I wonder if we will see her step out. Usually we see the winners in the music category perform or they accept via video, but the Teen Choice Awards do fall in between a short break in Maren’s current tour so anything is possible. I would love to see the star continue to stretch her fashionable legs on this red carpet opting for bold, short, and sexy with this purple David Koma Fall 2018 RTW long sleeve mini dress which features a turtleneck, triangular cutout at the right shoulder, and large feather crystal embellishments at the chest and hip. This is a chic look for the singer, who believe it or not is actually 28 years old, to rock on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards especially with a sleek updo, defined eyes, dusty rose lips, and a pair of silver Aquazzura ‘Casa Blanca’ lamb leather buckle detail ankle cuff sandals.Rounding out this list is one of my favorite ladies of young Hollywood, Storm Reid. She has been a real style force so far this year rocking looks from the likes of Coach, Prada, Yanina Couture, Reem Acra, and Moschino. I went back to the brand that Storm wore in June for the MTV Movie & Television Awards to pick the perfect dress for her to rock on the red carpet at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards with this white Viktor & Rolf Sior Resort 2019 mini dress which features a shift silhouette with a collared neckline, puffy 3/4 length sleeves, and faded crystal patterns. This dress is perfect for this red carpet it is that chic summery easy glamour that we want to see on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. I would compliment the embellishments in the dress pairing it with a pair of lime Jimmy Choo ‘Mischa’ crystal buckle low heel sandals. Add a teased curly updo, defined eyes, and pink lips to really finish this look perfectly.
The 2018 Teen Choice Awards will take place on Sunday August 12, 2018.
