The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards brought out the hottest young stars to the bright orange carpet at the University of Southern California Galen Center last weekend. The show was notably more casual than, say, the Oscars or Golden Globes — knowing there is a distinct possibility one may get “slimed” may be a contributing factor — but the attendees managed to look appropriate and stylish without floor-length gowns or tuxedos.
Actress-singer (and Justin Bieber girlfriend) Selena Gomez stood out in the crowd of mini-dresses in a look that was fresh and playful. Gomez, who took home the award that night for favorite television actress, stars on the Nickelodeon channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.”
She chose a cropped bustier and skirt, both from the Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection; orange and pink studded stilettos by Cesare Paciotti; and jeweled hoop earrings by Ippolita jewels. Gomez’s bustier could easily transition from awards show attire to appropriate wear for the Coachella music festival this weekend, with cut-off jeans and maybe a flower in her hair.
For a similar top, get the new romantics woven bustier by Free People for $78 or the textured foil crop bustier by Free People for $38 or the Silence and Noise denim bustier from Urbanoutfitters.com for $39.99.
Gomez chose a jewel-embellished, mixed-pattern skirt to pair with her bustier. For a versatile style you can wear with any top, try the Rare metallic PU skater skirt from Asos for $69.83.
Add an extra pop of color in the Pablo pointed court shoes from Topshop.com for $140, and accessorize with Hemetite crystal hoop earrings from Windsor for $12.90.
