Today marks the halfway point in my wishes for the 2018 Teen Choice Awards. I don’t get as excited for this red carpet as I do for some of the others because I never know who will actually show up on this red carpet. There might be some really great names nominated, but few of the nominees usually show up. The looks can be quite varried on this red carpet as well. So I don’t ever count out the red carpet, I never would have expected two looks from the ESPY Awards to be on my Best Dressed of July list, but I don’t like to get my hopes up too high. Now with saying that this list has a lot of really lofty wishes for some of the nominees at this years Teen Choice Awards one of them being for Camila Cabello. The pop star has been having a good year with touring with Taylor Swift, but there still has only been one fashion moment that she has had that I have actually been able to get behind. That was the black and white fringe Givenchy gown that she wore for the Billboard Music Awards. I don’t know if we will see the Choice Female Artist nominee on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards, but if we do I would like to see her go for something like this navy floral Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture strapless cocktail dress which features a lace bodice, tulle overlay, and a bubble hem. Picking couture for the Teen Choice Awards red carpet is a bit of a risk since we have only seen couture looks from brands like Georges Chakra, Nicolas Jebran, and Azzaro. Armani Prive has never been on a Teen Choice Awards red carpet, but I feel like Camila would be the perfect person to make this work on this red carpet. I think that with a messy updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, and a pair of sky blue and black satin Chloe Gosselin bow detail pointed toe pumps that this would be a really chic fashion moment for Camila to bring to like for the Teen Choice Awards.Gal Gadot may have won Choice Action Movie Actress last year, but she wasn’t seen at the event in person. Her acceptance speech was a taped message from the actress where you could see her wearing a Michael Kors printed halter dress. I hope that she is there to most likely collect that same award again this year in person. Instead of a dress I felt like the perfect look for Gal to bring to life on this red carpet, or more likely just to be seen inside, is this metallic bronze Poiret Fall 2018 RTW slouchy jumpsuit which features front pockets, a V neckline, and a relaxed fit. I definitely can see this being a look that Gal is drawn to on the red carpet, but I wonder if the brand would lend for an event like this. Since they relaunched the house back in February we have only seen the brand dress Naomi Campbell for Cannes and Rihanna for the Oceans 8 premiere in London, so this does seem like a departure to where we have seen them dress stars for before. The star power of Gal could make her a good candidate to still be able to make it happen. I will say that when I saw a product photo of this jumpsuit I decided that I want Gal to pair this look with a thin black Fendi ‘Bad Bugs’ belt to just make sure her waist is defined. A pair of black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Emily’ coarse glitter sandals, chic waves, defined eyes, and dark red lips all would add finish this look perfectly.Kelly Marie Tran burst onto the scene with the promo tour of Star Wars: The Last Jedi late last year and we have seen brands like Bibhu Mohapatra, Thai Nguyen Atelier, Mary Katrantzou, Georges Chakra Couture, Jenny Packham, and Naeem Khan. We haven’t really seen her since she presented at the Oscars earlier this year, but she is nominated for Choice Breakout Movie Star at the Teen Choice Awards and I feel like we just might see her step out on this red carpet. I wanted to pick something fun and flirty for Kelly to wear on this red carpet with this blush pink Pamella Roland Resort 2019 strapless mini dress which features a classic strapless neckline, a fitted silhouette, and playful feather embroidery detail. The dress is glamorous and flirty and I do believe that Kelly would look very chic wearing it on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. I think that while many would shy away from picking this gown for Kelly because of her curves I think that if it is perfectly tailored to her figure that it would make for a really chic moment for her to bring to the red carpet especially when paired with a chic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a rose pink glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Fie’ clutch, and a pair of nude pink Jimmy Choo ‘Fawne’ platform sandals. Millie Bobby Brown may be the face of Moncler’s fall 2018 campaign, but that doesn’t mean that she is slowing down her red carpet moments in Calvin Klein. Millie has become quite the fashionista rocking some of the most coveted brands on the red carpet. It was at the Teen Choice Awards last year that Millie started working with Thomas Carter Phillips wearing a bold yellow Kenzo ensemble and the matching of Thomas and Millie has been a match made in heaven ever since. I am very much hoping that Millie will bring something incredibly chic on this red carpet and that is exactly what I’ve found here with this black Calvin Klein policeman button sleeve dress which features a jewel neckline, contrasting panels at the sleeves adorned with silvery buttons based on police officers’ uniforms, and a mini length. There has been a big debate among people about what Millie wears on the red carpet because of her age. I don’t care honestly. She isn’t walking around with exposed bras and ‘naked’ gowns so if she wants to wear a dress without a back or something shorter I don’t care. I think that this dress is perfect for the Teen Choice Awards and when paired with a sleek low bun, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of white Calvin Klein Jean ‘Faith’ pointy toe corset lace boots I know Millie will own this look on the red carpet. Taylor Swift finally came out of hiding in May when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. She has a tour stop the night before the Teen Choice Awards so I wonder if Taylor will head off from Atlanta to the next tour stop in Tampa or if she will jet across the country to attend the Teen Choice Awards. I wouldn’t hold my breath, but I am hoping that she will. I would love to see Taylor step out also bringing couture to the red carpet wearing this black Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture draped mini dress which features flutter sleeves, a defined waist, an a-line skirt, and beaded details. Like I said earlier couture isn’t exactly what we are expecting to see on this red carpet, but I think that this dress is perfect for Taylor to bring to this red carpet. Pair it with a loose updo, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black satin Christian Louboutin ‘Raissa’ bow ankle strap pumps to ensure that this is another chic moment for Taylor.
The 2018 Teen Choice Awards will take place on Sunday August 12, 2018.
