As I mentioned yesterday I fell behind a little bit with my wishes for the 2019 Teen Choice Awards red carpet and had to cut my wishes short. So instead of 8 sets of wishes for this years red carpet I only have the time to share 6. So I am definitely going to make the most out the last three sets of wishes I have time to get out before this red carpet this weekend. Gabrielle Union just spent several days promoting L.A.’s Finest at the Monte Carlo TV Festival and is now nominated at the Teen Choice Awards for her role in the show. She always serves a look on the red carpet so I definitely want to see her on the red carpet, especially since her co-star Jessica Alba is already confirmed to attend. I decided to go for fun, funky, and dazzling meets elevated casual picking this Moschino Fall 2019 RTW ensemble which features a black and gold asymmetrical embellished brocade long sleeve crop top and a pair of currency embellished mid rise cropped jeans. This look is sin city meets Golden Girls and honestly I think it would take a real fashionista to make this look not look cheesy or tacky, and I believe that Gabrielle is the right girl to really make this look come to life in a chic and high fashion manner. Lately Gabrielle has been loving statement bags on the red carpet. Now I want to see her bring one with her to the Teen Choice Awards, but the slot machine bag that the look was paired with on the runway is a little much. I would add a Judith Leiber ‘Stack of Cash Rich’ crystal embellished minaudiere to keep the Vegas high roller vibe from the runway going. A ponytail of braids, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of gold Gianvito Rossi studded PVC and metallic leather ankle strap d’Orsay pointed toe pumps, and a selection of Jennifer Fisher jewels including ‘Double Pin’ 18k gold and white diamond earcuffs and 2″ ‘Hailey’ 10k gold plated hoops would finish this look perfectly. Aladdin star Mena Massoud is the only dude in my 2019 Teen Choice Awards wishes. He definitely showcased some amazing sartorial decisions over the course of the Aladdin press tour earlier this year and it makes me want to see him step out on this red carpet where he is nominated for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy Movie Actor for his breakout role in the Disney film. I decided that instead of going to one of the brands that Mena has worn on the red carpet thus far I decided that I want to see him expand her dossier of designers rocking this grey and black Dior Men Spring 2020 Menswear ensemble which features a short sleeve zip up trucker jacket, a Dior logo button down (I would like a short sleeve version for this red carpet though), a pair of high waisted pleat front pants, and a seat belt buckle belt. Since Kim Jones took over the reins at Dior Men I have loved every season just a little more and Spring 2020 Menswear had to be my favorite collection yet. This look is the right balance of high fashion style and casual tone that I think would make this a perfect look for him to bring to life on this red carpet. I would however swap the chunky boots from the runway in favor of black and white Dior Men ‘B24’ sneakers to make the look just slightly more casual for this red carpet. At the end of last year I put Naomi Scott on my Ones to Watch list, and she has not disappointed me. I am really excited to see what the rest of the year has in store for Naomi as she gears up for another major promo tour for Charlie’s Angels. At the 2019 Teen Choice Awards Naomi is nominated for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy Movie Actress and I am expecting that if we see her on this red carpet that she will deliver an absolutely glamorous moment. I saw this purple, black, and red geode print Prabal Gurung Resort 2020 wrap style mini dress which features a V-neckline, mutton sleeves, and an elongated drape tie at waist and immediately thought of Naomi. I feel like this color on Naomi would be phenomenal. A sleek center parted hairstyle, purple smokey eyes, soft nude pink lips, a pair of purple and red Alexandre Birman strappy metallic leather sandals, and simple Martin Katz amethyst and diamond drop earrings would finish this look in the perfect sexy and glamorous manner. Sofia Carson is always one I get excited to see on the red carpet. She is unafraid of taking risks when it comes to drama and that I what I am always happy to see from her when she steps out. Will she bring that same level of “extra” to the red carpet at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards? I definitely hope so. I would love to see the Choice Drama TV Actress nominee be one of the few rocking couture on this red carpet wearing this ruby red Zuhair Murad Fall 2019 Couture long sleeve mini dress which features a semi sheer construction, intricate bead and crystal embroidery, metal details on the waist, and flared feather detailed cuffs. I was honestly looking in my couture folder for someone else, but as soon as I saw this dress I knew it was the perfect look for Sofia to bring to life on this red carpet. It is fun, flirty, and dramatic. Now while for other red carpets I might have really done up the styling for this look I think that it is enough on its own for the Teen Choice Awards red carpet so I would just finish this look with a sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of red Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ simplistic strappy sandals.Finishing out today’s wishes is the gorgeous Yara Shahidi whom I always love seeing on the red carpet. She is nominated for three Teen Choice Awards this weekend and I definitely want to see her deliver a major moment on this red carpet. To do so I turned to one of my favorite young NYC based fashion brands, Area, to come up with the perfect look for her to do just that. I think that this watermelon pink Area Fall 2019 RTW tie-dye mini dress which features a crystal trimmed bow detail on the bodice, a crew neckline, and three quarter length sleeves is perfect for Yara to deliver on this red carpet. I think that like other looks I’ve picked for this red carpet fit the perfect meshing of casual and cocktail. Finishing this look with full bouncy curls, defined eyes, nude glossy lips, a pair of silver Miu Miu glitter detailed mirrored leather platform sandals, and Djula ‘Sun’ diamond hoop earrings would definitely lead to Yara having the major moment I want her to have on this red carpet.
The 2019 Teen Choice Awards will take place on Sunday August 11, 2019.
