The 2012 Teen Choice AwardsBy Samantha A. Sadhwani
One of the trends I absolutely love is pleats. From the pastel pleated dresses of Prada to the bold bias folds of Bottega Venetta, the trend not only proved essential in the best of the collections, but looked stunning on the runway, too. Pleats thrive on volume and grace, emulating a sense of effortlessness and opulence by the wearer. So it’s definitely no surprise that the most striking ensembles in the recent Teen Choice Awards composed of flirty pleated dresses!
Decked in a Dsquared2 pleated frock and Herve Leger sandals, Selena Gomez took pretty in pink to the next level. Although simple, each key piece concluded a fun and flirty ensemble perfect for the Teen Choice Awards.
Contrasting to Selena Gomez’s hot pink frock, I thought Zoe Saldana looked equally pretty in her Jonathan Saunder’s two-piece ensemble. The print + pleats + satin pumps combo surprisingly achieved a chic outfit.
I also loved Troian Bellisario’s pleated tulle dress. The Pretty Little Liars star looked elegant and understated clad in a Maria Lucia Hohan design. I personally would’ve opted for less distracting shoes, though.
Lastly, my favorite for the Teen Choice Awards was Taylor Swift’s stunning Maria Lucia Hohan pleated frock. Swift combined the right amount of sexy and elegant in her ensemble. She certainly did justice to the trend!
