The Oscars might present a major sartorial challenge for Hollywood’s young stars—what to wear for an event where everyone and anyone is ready to pounce on your slightest fashion flaw?—but they’re nothing compared to the conundrum of dressing for the Kids’ Choice Awards: where, in addition to looking pretty and put-together on the red carpet, you must be prepared for the eventuality of getting slimed with grody green goop. Which is why this week’s Style Superstar featurees get kudos not just for cuteness, but courage, as they braved the one and only awards show where things can get truly messy and an adorable outfit is at high risk for ruination.
This week’s winner? It’s Bella Thorne, who struck the perfect balance of fresh, fun and fancy in her two-piece metallic shell and miniskirt. A lot of stars arrive at the Kids’ Choice Awards overdressed, but this outfit is exactly right: a classic silver sheath, some edgy pops of color (a green beaded necklace and pink patent heels) and free-flowing hair. Bella struck just the right mood for the year’s most whimsical awards event! And she didn’t get slimed, either. Bonus.
Also at the KCAs: Kristen Stewart, who showed off her legs in a typically KStew combo of shorts with a boxy top, in an eye-catching pattern of black burnout dots over deep blue satin. This look is very much in line with Kristen’s signature style, and it looks great on her even though it’s not our favoritest favorite (are those shoulder pads?)—but mostly, we’re featuring this outfit in memoriam, because after Kristen shared a hug with the slime-covered Sandra Bullock and Neil Patrick Harris, we’re pretty sure we’ll never see it again…at least not in this life.
