Red Carpet Looks for Less: 2010 Teen Choice Awards

Publish date:

The 2010 Teen Choice Awards aired last week and as usual, Young Hollywood showed up to rock the red carpet. The TCA's always present the perfect opportunity to experiment with fun trends or show off a new style and the stars did not disappoint: They definitely brought their fashion A-game!

While I was drooling over the TCA red carpet looks, I realized that all the fabulous outfits were way out of the average college student's budget. That's why I scoured the internet to find similar pieces for a fraction of the price.

Here are three of my favorite looks from the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, along with outfits that recreate the looks for less:

Selena Gomez: Little White Dress

Little White Dresses were big on the 2010 TCA red carpet, but my favorite take on this look was Selena Gomez's. She always looks so effortlessly chic, and her TCA look was no exception - she rocked a gorgeous LWD with nude accessories, for an overall aesthetic that was fun and high-style at the same time.

Recreate Selena's look with a similar dress and be sure to keep the rest of the outfit neutral like Selena did with white and nude-colored accessories. Finally, add a pop of color with a pretty blue nail polish for a young and playful look.

Megan Fox: Mix and Match

Megan Fox's TCA look paired two unexpected pieces-- a lamé skirt and printed top-- to create a look that was at once flirty and bold. The outfit is a variation of the mixed print trend that was big last spring, but this time Megan played up different textures as well.

To recreate Megan's outfit, rock pieces in different patterns and textures, and be sure to add a waist-defining belt to unify and streamline the look. Since you want the bold pieces to take center stage, accessorize with delicate earrings and black peep-toe pumps. To mimic Megan's glowing complexion, simply dust some shimmering powder in a rosy shade on your cheeks.

Hilary Duff: Heavy Metals

Hilary Duff's TCA red carpet look seemed like a total departure from her usual style, but in a good way! She paired a body-hugging bandage dress with some tough-looking chains for a look that was sexy yet fun. Hilary also wore a fun braided updo, which stayed perfectly coiffed all night with the help of some great products.

The bandage dress below costs much less than the Hervé Léger dress Hilary was wearing, but has the same basic structure and formfitting silhouette. For this look, pile on the chain necklaces-- the more the better in this case. Since this outfit is heavy on the necklaces, the only other accessories needed are some neutral suede pumps that will make any girl's legs look mile-long.
