Looks We Loved at the Teen Choice Awards

08/21/2006 at 12:10 PM ET

Bucking the trend of dressing down at teen-oriented awards shows, starlets from Ashley Olsen to Zooey Deschanel hit the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards in sexy little evening dresses. The trend of the night was clear: high waisted, with full or bubble skirts, and daring necklines, ranging from the plunging, like Choice Music Breakout winner Rihanna‘s Collection Bebe frock (left), to the intricate, like Choice TV Actress Drama winner Rachel Bilson‘s Zac Posen stunner (right). Presenter Brittany Murphy (middle) also hit it big with her Sinha-Stanic mini-dress paired with slick patent heels, which is shaping up to be a major look for fall. Paired with soft makeup and hair, this look won across the (surf)board!

But guys still played it cool and comfortable on the red carpet– just look at Nick Lachey, who won the hotly contested Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon (Male). He stuck to his signature look of relaxed jeans and an untucked buttondown. And the people have spoken and wouldn’t want it any other way!

These girls look amazing! I love this style of dress because it shows off the legs while still leaving enough to the imagination. While grills leave much to be desired, this fashion statement is worth keeping!

My least favorite was what Kristen Bell wore to present. Her high-waisted pants went up past her rib cage!

All these dresses are gorgeous as are the wearers. However, they should not be worn when you are eight months pregnant. Someone needs to help Britney S.

Nick Lachey won an award for wearing jeans and an untucked button-down shirt? It’s his “signature”? As opposed to the look sported by every male between the ages of 22 and 29 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in every bar in the NYC metropolitan area? I’m pretty sure I figured out that look when I was in grade school (where every male between the ages of 10 and 16 wore it at least twice a week). Why doesn’t Nick have to work as hard as Brittany to get some attention for his look? Someone should point out that the emperor has no clothes.

I loved Brittany Murphy’s dress the most! I would wear that too if I had those killer legs ;)

i kinda have a different view on the brittney spears and her shorty-little-dress issue. i actually really liked the dress and think it suited her very well. even if she’s pregnant, i think she should show off her bump and her pregnant body. and this dress is the nicest thing ive seen her wear since…hmmm her career came to a halt and she started having babies…heidi klum wears a lot of short little dresses like this and she’s pregnant and looks amazing…

I agree, I thought Britney Spears looked fabulous last night! Other pregnant stars wear similar things and nothing negative is said. You should be proud of your new body when you are pregnant. She looked great compared to most of her maternity wear!

I thought Britney Spears looked GORGEOUS! When she walked out I was like “wow!”. She was just beautiful! The dress was just perfect. I love her hair too.
Brittany Murphy, Carmen Electra, and Brooke Hogan also looked amazing.

OH MY GOD!!! Rihanna looks so gorgeous. This girl is flawless in every single way. Her performance was beautiful too.
