Teen Choice Awards: Resoundingly Fine-ly Played, Zooey and Selena


SELENA: Hey, Zooey.

ZOOEY: What’s up, buttercup? You look pretty, in that kind of ‘cheerleader going to her spring dance’ kind of way.

SELENA: Is that a bad thing?

ZOOEY: Only if you accidentally break into some high kicks, Tricks.

SELENA: Well, YOU look… fine, actually. That dress is nice. And your hair looks less fake. And no tights!

ZOOEY: That was the plan, Stan. It’s time for some bare legs, scrambled eggs!

SELENA: Why are you rhyming?

ZOOEY: Does that not seem like something I would do, little boo?

SELENA: I don’t know, but it’s sort of creepy. Can you stop?

ZOOEY: Sure. Maybe instead we’ll just stand here and talk about whether Justin Bieber is a sensitive lover.

SELENA: Ugh, never mind, go back to the rhymes.

ZOOEY: Yeah, that’s what I thought, fembot.

    A little of the length of Zooey’s dress needs to be chopped off and added to Selena’s.

      I was just thinking that the simplicity of these dresses really highlights how much more material Zooey’s has! Makes me dislike both of the outfits.

    Just putting it out there, they both have less than beautiful legs. But they are lovely girls. And I love their outfits.

      I don’t think that needed to be put out there, and indeed, I’d prefer if people didn’t.

        Thanks so much Heather. This policy is one of the reasons I adore this blog. OP was wrong anyway since both of these girls have gorgeous legs.

          Seriously. They just haven’t been photoshopped to get rid of every teeny deviation in skin tone–and it looks like it isn’t great lighting, too.

          They look awesome.

        Thank you for helping us stick to a discussion on fashion. And FWIW they have amazing legs.

        AMEN! This is about fashion, not bodies!

      You know, it’s comments like this that probably lead to Zooey’s addiction to tights. Don’t bring back the tights Zooey! You have lovely legs – show them!

    These two dresses are so unflattering! Aaand easy on the eye make-up Selena.

    I had to double-check the post title when I saw the pic – Zooey looks exactly like Alexis Bledel in these pics to me, rather than herself. And also at least 5 years younger than she usually looks (not that she’s OLD).

      Yeah, in every picture I’ve seen of her from that night, Zooey has looked like someone else. Is she just wearing really different makeup or something?

      • zut

        I think it’s liner overload, on the lower rims of her eyes (making them appear smaller) and on her upper lip (making them appear fakey). I hope to Zeus that’s all it is.

        • Al

          Yeah, I think it’s bad makeup. Too much liner, too little blush and her foundation is a bit too white. It’s a shame, I think she’s so naturally beautiful!

    Do they not have people to hold their phones? If I was rich and famous, I would not have to carry my own phone. I’m just saying…

      I didn’t watch the show, but I’m guessing the phones (or whatever that gadget they’re holding is) were part of the routine they were doing as presenter?

      Can anyone confirm/disprove my assumption?

    Not that I haven’t enjoyed the Teen Choice posts, but after they’re done, could you post maybe 20 in a row of people who are at least 40? I only commented on this particular post because I at least recognized one of the people in it.

    Good God, I am old.

    • Lindy

      I agree, Wendy. And adding to the whole being old thing, Justin Bieber’s love ability is not something I wanted to think about.

        Bieber always looks so bemused when she is trying to kiss him. It’s painful to see. All the silly young starlets there should just copy whatever Zooey has done, is doing… she is fabulous.

          I couldn’t disagree with you more about Zooey- her twee “it’s ok for a female character vapid and one-dimensional as long as their aDORKable, tee-hee!” persona makes me want to punch my face. I’m so over the manic pixie dream girl trend. That said, I find her far more palatable here than I usually do, and I think Selena looks age- and venue-appropriate and adorable: original flavor.

        We can only post about them if they’re a) out and about, and b) wearing something worth commenting on. Cross your fingers!

          I’m actually finding them helpful–but mostly b/c my 9 yr old just announced that she doesn’t know anything about music or TV, and wants to be able to sing along to songs other kids do, so I’m finding myself getting on top of tween (ugh) culture quickly. Between this and the Top 40 list, that should cover it…

    I always feel like Zooey’s looks are ‘so close but not quite there yet’… which is a shame because she has the potential to look amazing in almost everything she wears.

    She should hire her costume designer from New Girl – Jess’ clothes are always adorable and stylish and not TOO twee. I would love to see what they would do with an event like this!

    I love Zooey’s dress! It is the exact kind of thing I would love to wear to work. I think she has the same kind of problem I have with that kind of dress though – it’s a little too long all over.

    The difference in dress lengths between the two of them cracks me up.

    I’m not really feeling either of these. I feel that they could maybe both be Unfug-It-Ups, but Selena’s especially is confusing to me. It feels too…rigid? It sort of looks fake, and I don’t know why. On the plus side, her hair is nice, and I like the colour of Zooey’s dress.

    Zooey’s dress needs the waist brought up an inch and the entire thing shortened like 3. this is not fine, she looks droopy.

    I think these would be better if Zooey’s dress was a little shorter and Selena’s a little longer. Overall, though, I think they’re cute (dresses and girls, both). However, the lighting or something is giving their legs a weird hue-Selena’s in particular look like she has some weird bruising going on.

    “Hi, my dress is boring and too small!”

    “Well, hi, my dress is boring and too big!”

    Selena’s hair looks too much “done”, and her dress is a reminiscence of what we 90′s girls used to wear to hit the mall back then; the difference being that pretty much any of us looked better -or, at least, fitted better- in ours than Selena in hers.
    Zooey’s face and hair are amazing, but the dress’ waist is perhaps a little too low. Metoo hate the twee thing; idk from when it became mandatory for Hollywood people to behave in real life as their fictional characters.

      Wait, you wore that to the mall? No wonder I didn’t get any dates in the 90s…flannel and jeans didn’t bring the boys to the yard!

        Sweetie, I used to live in Miami!!!! Flannel and jeans are a big NO weather-wise back there.. specially in the summer.

    Selena looks cute. Zooey looks dowdy – not the best choice for a teen show

    Is this the best they could do? Sooooo boring!!! Zooey looks adorable, as always, though!

    Loved the commentary. :) They both look fine, dress-wise, but in this and every other picture I saw of Zooey at this event, she looks a bit off, face-wise. A couple of pictures I thought were mis-captioned with her name! I hope she hasn’t done something to her face that changes how she looks long-term!

    Because of their colors, I love the juxtaposition of these two dresses! I don’t know if the colors would work as part of the same outfit, but next to each other, in separate outfits, each one makes the other pop. (though the pink dress, I suppose, did not need help in that regard).

    I really like the matching blue leather belt on Zoe’s dress. Its adds a subtle edge to a pretty safe dress.

    And I just realized I spelled her name completely wrong. “Zooey’s” belt!

    Hi all. I am looking for a specific designer of a bathing suit (pictured here- http://dlisted.com/2012/07/18/search-new-bride-tommy-girl-has-begun?page=1) and was directed to this site by someone who thought I could find out here.

    Does anyone know who makes this bathing suit or where it can be bought?

    Many thanks!!!

    I am finding your Zooey voice completely plausible, in a delightful way. Is one of you secretly on the “New Girl” writing staff?

    You are *excellent* at imitating Zooey!:D

    They are both so pretty but now all I can think about is Selena Gomez as a fembot in an Austin Powers movie.
