‘The Hills’ Ladies Go Glam For Red-Carpet Finale

While Kristin, Lo and the rest of the girls opt for head-turning mini-dresses, Brody and Frankie go way casual.

During six seasons of “The Hills,” the ladies always managed to leave an impression when it came to fashion. It was no different when the stylish castmembers arrived to walk the red carpet at Los Angeles’ Roosevelt Hotel, just before the show’s series finale was set to air on Tuesday night (July 13).

Although Lauren Conrad , Whitney Port and Heidi Montag were notably absent from the pre-show carpet, the rest of the “Hills” cast showed up in their finest to celebrate “The Hills Live: A Hollywood Ending” aftershow. And while the guys stepped out in casual looks, the girls mostly opted for designer mini-dresses.

Lo Bosworth, one of the first to arrive, bared her shoulders in a short, white Tadashi Shoji dress that she said was straight from the designer’s latest runway collection. Her pal Kristin Cavallari had one of the night’s standout looks, decked out in a gorgeous form-fitting, flesh-tone dress that was delicately crisscrossed with silver sparkles. Unfortunately, though Kristin’s dress was generating lots of talk, the reality-TV star couldn’t recall the name of its designer. (Her co-star Frankie Delgado tried in vain to help by searching for a tag.)

Both Lo and Kristin opted for neutral colors on the red carpet, but Audrina Patridge mixed things up a bit, arriving in a bright purple mini with cutouts at the waist and along the shoulder. Like Audrina, Stephanie Pratt also opted for color. And while Stephanie’s dress might have been a last-minute find — she told MTV News she’d gone shopping the morning of the finale — it was a really good one. Her strapless Hérve Léger dress, accented in various shades of blue, was another one of our favorites of the night.

The boys took no cues from the “Hills” girls when it came to getting dressed for the big finale, toning down the glam factor entirely. Brody Jenner and best friend Frankie ditched suits in favor of jeans. Brody sported a black-and-white, plaid button-down with dark jeans. And though he paired the look with big sunglasses and a fitted cap, the one accessory we didn’t get to see was Brody’s latest tattoo . The “Hills” heartthrob recently inked the name of his girlfriend, singer Avril Lavigne, on his arm.

Frankie shared Brody’s dress code, wearing a pair of jeans and a simple black T-shirt, letting his footwear grab the spotlight. Frankie’s red-soled Jordans nearly trumped the ladies’ red-soled Christian Louboutins.
