We are gearing up for the first major red carpet in a very busy month with the 2018 Teen Choice Awards. August starts off with some big pop culture red carpets like the Teen Choice Awards and the VMA’s and then starts fall film festival season with the opening of the Venice Film Festival. It is pretty much wall to wall glamour from here on out. The red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards is probably the most casual event of the month and I have to say I am really excited to see what all of the stars will bring to the red carpet. Anna Kendrick is nominated for Choice Comedic Movie Actress for her performance in Pitch Perfect 3 and Choice Twit and will also be one of the many presenters of the night. I had originally decided that I wasn’t going to pick a look for Anna because despite the fact that she is nominated I didn’t expect that we would see her on this red carpet. But since she is presenting, and has a movie coming out, I guess it does make sense. This surprisingly the first time that Anna will make an appearance at the show. I wanted something really chic and very summery for Anna to bring to this red carpet so I felt like this black and white draped Vionnet Resort 2019 wrap style dress which features a notch lapels, short sleeves, and a purple ribbon tie on the hip would be a real perfect moment for her to bring to this red carpet. I think that with easy waves, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of lilac Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Foulard’ patent leather sandals all would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Last year Halsey was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards including Choice Breakout Artist, unfortunately she lost all three and didn’t end up attending the ceremony. This year she is only nominated for Choice Song: Female Artist for “Bad At Love” and I would love to see the singer rock the red carpet at this years red carpet wearing this black Fausto Puglisi Resort 2019 skater dress which features a plunging neckline, a gold embellishment detailed and leather waist, and a mini length. This is a sexy and statement making moment and I think that Halsey would definitely own this look on the red carpet. I went through many different shoe options to pair with this look, but I ultimately thought that a pair of antique gold Casadei crossover strap platform sandals would be perfect to compliment this dress for this red carpet. A short punky hairstyle, smokey eyes, and rose pink lips all would really make sure that this is an absolutely chic and sexy moment for Halsey to bring to this red carpet. As I have gone through my wishes for this red carpet over the last several days I have really made my wishes known that I want to see a more elevated level of glamour on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet. I don’t know if I believe that will happen, but a guy can dream right? Maddie Ziegler is nominated for Choice Dancer for the fourth time. The very talented dancer rose to fame thanks to the Lifetime show Dance Moms. She has then been a darling of pop star Sia and has started to become a darling of the fashion industry. I would love to see Maddie bring some major flirty glamour to the red carpet wearing this blue, yellow, and white print Chanel Cruise 2019 mini dress which features ruffled shoulders and hem. I really don’t know if Maddie has earned enough fashion clout to be able to snatch one of Chanel’s newest collections right off the runway, but I do think that this is a very chic moment for Maddie and it is the fun and flirty look I think would work perfectly on this red carpet especially when paired with a sleek ponytail, defined eyes, bright pink lips, and a pair of two tone blue Alexandre Birman tied ankle strap sandals. Nina Dobrev is no stranger to the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. She has been nominated several times and won several as well. She may not be nominated this year, but we will see her on the red carpet this year as one of the nights many presenters. In the past we have seen Nina wearing designs from Zuhair Murad, J. Mendel, Vionnet, and D&G and with her working with Kate Young as her stylist now I am really interested in seeing what she will bring to this red carpet this year. When I think of Kate’s work I don’t usually think of the Teen Choice Awards, but I think that she could help bring that elevated glamour to this red carpet that I am craving. I feel like Nina would totally rock this red carpet wearing this coastal blue denim Ralph Lauren Spring 2018 RTW acid wash cocktail dress which features a square neckline with spaghetti straps and a feather embellished skirt. It is chic and flirty while being very grown up and glamorous. It is exactly what I want to see on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards. Add a romantic updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a silver M2malletier metallic handle clutch, and silver Aquazzura ‘Linda’ metallic sandals to really round out this look in a very modern and glamorous manner. It was last year at the Emmy Awards that I really took notice of Atlanta star Zazie Beetz on the red carpet when she wore a dramatic and eye catching Rosie Assoulin gown. Since then we have seen Zazie rock the red carpet in highly coveted designers like Valentino, Stella McCartney, and Chloe. I am very interested to see if the Choice Summer Movie Actress nominee will be on the red carpet at this years Teen Choice Awards. I went for a fun look with this baby rose pink Ulla Johnson Resort 2019 denim jumpsuit. It isn’t the same major designer moment that we have come to see from Zazie, but I think that Ulla Johnson is the perfect cool girl brand for her to bring to this red carpet. It is one of those easy yet chic looks that it would take the right attitude and styling to really make a major moment on the red carpet. I think that Zazie has the right attitude and I think that teased out curls, defined eyes, bright pink lips, and a pair of pink neon glitter Sophia Webster ‘Soleil’ ruffle detail leather sandals would add the perfect styling to this ensemble.
The 2018 Teen Choice Awards will take place on Sunday August 12, 2018.
