What Was She Thinking? Jessica Simpson at the Teen Choice Awards

08/21/2006 at 04:47 PM ET

Was Jessica Simpson so consumed with the stress of hosting an awards show that her ex-husband and his new girlfriend were both nominated for that she ignored her wardrobe? Jessica is known for being a clothes horse and an avid shopper, so we’re a little surprised at her lack-luster wardrobe on the show. From the see-through Jill Stuart lace shorts one-piece (left) to the unflattering tulip-skirted Miu Miu dress (middle), Jessica looked off her usual style standards. The satin bustier paired with baggy cargo pants and heels (right) veers into the inexplicable, leaving us scratching our heads. Still, Jessica did a good job handling awkward hosting duties. If only her outfits had as much grace.

Normally I think Jessica dresses ok but yes, she too makes mistakes as seen in the photos. I agree with some with the over the top tanning!!

I would have to say that jess looked just fine, she is a gorgeous young woman. I am a big fan of her….and don’t be jelous of her look….

I love Jessica SOOOOO much she makes anything she wears look good. Although i personally would not wear the clothes doesn’t mean thay dont look good on her.

Okay, so it’s not the best look for her, and yes she’s a little heavier then she used to be…but…these celebrities can’t win for losing! When they loose too much weight, they’re critisized for having alleged eating disorders…then if they’re not rail thin, they’re critisized for being heavy and compared to other stars. Like in Jessica’s circumstances, her newly renovated little sister! Give her a break! All women are victims of emotional eating or lack there of at some point in my opinion! She just walked away from her 1st love and marriage, and she’s constantly being condemned lately for not being better then other people! I think she’s beautiful regardless!

She used to have really good style – but lately, it’s been terrible. I agree – the extensions have got to go. I’m not a huge fan of long hair in the first place and her mane just looks out of control. And…she definately had some interesteing makeup moments on the Teen Choice awards – aka hot pink lip stick that looked about as rediculous as it did in the ’80s.

Jess is trying to start her own fasion statement. But unfortunily, shes not doing so well. She needs to stick with tight clothing and Less hair. Also she needs to stop trying to cover up her boobs with heavey fabrics. She has too cute of a figure to do all this. Good luck jess.

Honestly I would give my right leg to look half as good as Jessica does!! she is gorgeous…I will agree with the pic of her in the corset (not the best) but overall not really seeing what most of you are seeing!! Jessica is HOT! :)

Does anyone notice her face and makeup in pic # 3??? It is not her usual gorgeous face and makeup. The first outfit in pic # 1 is definitley not as bad as the other 2 pics. Jessica is 100 times better than Nick’s girlfriend Vanessa. Why did she dress so horribly??!!! But I do give her credit for hosting. Jess did act really ditsy and fake, but any other person would not have the guts to host when their ex hubbie is sitting right infront of them. I don’t know why should would agree to hosting that award show when her private life and divorce with Nick is SOOO public. Jess is BEAUTIFUL, but musically, she is not talented. Everyone is saying people are jealous when dissing her music. But come on, you would actually listen to “public affair”? Everytime I hear it on the radio, I turn it off. Her cd will probably suck. But Jess is soooo hot and gorgeous, and she seems like a really good person. But her music is bubble gum YUCK.

One bad night of clothes. It’s a shame designers make such ugly duds She’s still adorable and Nick sucks!
