Oh man! The 2012 Kids Choice Awards were SO SATISFYING. There’s just something so enormously rewarding about seeing gorgeous, dewy-skinned, long limbed ladies and dudes get dolled up for an event and then get RIGHTEOUSLY SLIMED. The show was all in fun, and we saw a lot of bright, bold, mini dresses on the “Orange Carpet” but something we also noticed was that Willow Smith, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber flipped their proverbial wigs for new hair dos.
The ever adventurous Willow (who’s been steadily making her way through the entire color spectrum) opted for pink for her close-to-the-dome shorn coif, which was just the perfect zany dash of color under a black porkpie. The added collar, stud earrings and retro rhinestone cat’s eye sunnies offset the black, leather jacket (also, is it us or does the whole Smith fam have the best collection of jackets EVER?) and while we love the truly, truly, truly outrageous hue we’re def curious about what’s next. We’d bet blue but we’re not ruling out any patterns either. Maybe she’ll twerk camo?
Katy’s also one of those thrillingly unpredictable sorts and this time we were pleased to see her hair pulled all the way out of her eyes because HOLY FACE, she really is stunning when we get to peep the lot of her. And while she’s been wearing a high pony tail for performances, this MEGA LONG sleek mermaidy iteration that snakes in front of her shoulders with a tight looped braid at the tie is new and absolutely The Business.
Speaking of business, holy hairspray and a tight-toothed comb can we discuss the HEIGHT on Bieber’s manbangs? Because wow. And also, ajfkaskdlkjfldksjfskdflkjdfska!!! THAT is an impressive feat of architectural majesty. The thing that was most gobsmackingly, golf-clap-worthy about the plume of tonsorial magic is that it wasn’t one of those overly gelled monstrosities. The thing MOVED. And we saw this in great, pleasurable detail not only when he surprised us with an appearance but also when he proceeded to get the great green BEJESUS slimed out of him as the ending of the show. It’s just a damned good thing this dude knows product ’cause we can’t EVEN imagine what it’ll take to get the gunk out. Maybe he should shave it? JKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJKJK *ducks* I know we don’t joke about this stuff. EVER.
