There was a whole lotta glitz, glam, and gam on display at last Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards, with many members of Hollywood’s new class sporting identically short and sparkly looks (making us wonder if the pre-show preparation included more than a few phone calls of the “What are you wearing? ME TOO!” variety). But while the prevailing trend at the TCAs might’ve been cut from the same cloth, not everyone pulled it off with equal panache. Who stunned in sparkles on Sunday night?
Miranda Cosgrove, that’s who! Miranda was the clear winner of this week’s Style Superstar honors, with a Colette Dinigan dress in a cool, mercury-colored sheen. Her silhouette was a breath of fresh air in a sea of super-tight bodycon, with a blousy drape up top that gives way to a svelte, tiered skirt—and while the ultra-textural fabric is a bold and unusual choice (no doubt she heard a “disco ball” joke or two, although we think it’s more like sexy chainmail), Miranda wisely let the dress do the talking, with sleek, simple hair, strappy heels and a clutch that looks like a small, chrome-plated machine. In a fun way.
Also showing off a spangled look on Sunday: Hayden Panettiere, who opted for this Zuhair Murad minidress bedecked with purple sequins. But with the ultra-matchy shoes and the ruffled hemline, not to mention her blonde waves and perma-tan, this outfit travels too far into Human Barbie Doll territory for our taste. Might we recommend a sleek ponytail and some nude sandals?
