Fug File: Teen Choice Awards

Teen Choice Awards Who Fugged It More: Lily Collins vs. Bella Thorne, With Bonus Schmidt


People wear the same designer to an event all the time, but with something this distinctive, it feels like a strange choice to let these two ladies face off in matching palm trees. Then again, I will remember them both, so maybe the designer is a total genius for doing it.

First, Disney Channel’s Bella Thorne.

If we hacked off the black sleeves, or fitted them so that they didn’t look like a surgically altered sweatshirt, then I’d quite like this. For an event where people hand out surfboards, the whole palm tree/sky/ocean thing makes sense without being overly adorable.

Lily Collins picked a more dramatic version:

Teen Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Miley Cyrus


Honestly, aren’t we tired of this?

The sheer shirt/visible leather bra thing doesn’t really feel all that shocking anymore, or surprising or interesting or avant-garde or whatever it is that Miley here is trying to be. It actually feels kind of over. Yeah, yeah, you’re wearing a leather bikini top. Give me a call when you’re trotting out something we haven’t seen before. Isn’t it time that we look at an outfit, think, “Has Lady Gaga already done this?” and if she HAS, we put it away? I think the answer is yes. The bonus is that this means far fewer people will walk outside wearing breakfast food.

Teen Choice Fug Carpet: Anna Camp


I will not pull this punch: Anna Camp’s outfit might be the worst thing that has ever happened, and yes, I say that KNOWING we have already looked at what Ashley Benson wore.

She looks like the Big Top at Princess Sparklepony’s Fantasy Twinkle Circus On Ice. And with the netting and the makeup and the bronzer and her hand, she has four different skin tones working right now. She’s human Neapolitan ice cream, with a bonus flavor. That’s too many. I can’t. BE BETTER TO YOURSELF, Anna. You’re a palindrome, for God’s sake.

Oh, and there’s more:

Teen Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Ashley Benson


Often, my favorite red carpet photos are the ones where the subject is caught in transition.

This one says, “I’ve made a huge mistake.” I call it Pensive Starlet, Wearing Her Junk Drawer.

Let’s see if a sultry smile sells it:

Teen Choice Awards Fug Carpet: Selena Gomez


Is splitting your seams the new thing now?

This seriously looks like someone sewed a sheath to her as tightly as possible and then told her to do jumping jacks, and wherever it tore, that was the design. What a waste of a great color and good head-styling. And also of perfectly good jumping jacks.

Teen Choice Awards Well Played: Lea Michele


Well, this had to be the ultimate bittersweet night for Lea Michele. She won for best actress in a comedy, and Glee won, and it was her first public appearance since Cory Monteith died, and… it is so hard to face doing something, knowing exactly what everyone will be thinking and wanting to ask, and suspecting you will cry your way through the night.

But Lea looked gorgeous — that dress is extremely cute — and in fact the other two ladies behind her look nice also (I wonder if the three of them intentionally color-coordinated)(and then there’s Kevin McHale, whose shorts with socks/tights/whatever I can’t even talk about right now but suffice to say unless Cory Monteith once told him, “BELIEVE IN THE SHORTS, DUDE,” then I really don’t get why he couldn’t just wear freaking pants). Lea has worn a lot of that darker bright pink before; perhaps it’s like her sartorial Happy Place. Good for her for pulling it together, making a classy tribute to her boyfriend, and doing him and herself proud. What they’re doing at work right now must be unimaginably hard, and I’m glad they get to show up today feeling like everything they did with Cory really was appreciated.

I don’t have anything funny or snarky to add. Sometimes you just have to hug it out, not fug it out.
