The Teen Choice Awards are underway for 2013 — which means a bevvy of bright young things are hitting the red (/blue) carpet as we speak. First up we have Australian TV presenter and co-host of Extra in the U.S., Renee Bargh. The Australian beauty brought an ultra-modern look, ticking off the season's monochrome and midriff theme in a cropped short-suit and ankle-strap heels. Now it's over to you — love it, or leave it?
Jennifer Hawkins gave the colour pink an anything-but-girly update last night for the Range Rover Sport launch in Sydney (FYI she's a Range Rover Ambassador). Turning out in a body-hugging Yeojin Bae number, complete with thigh-high leg split (we already knew Jen is a fan of those) and clever cut-outs, the home-grown beauty anchored the look with all-black extras.

When walking the red carpet for an awards show, it's pretty much customary to go with a gown — and at yesterday's Critics' Choice Awards, we saw quite a lot of them. Floor-grazing looks were rife on the red carpet for everyone from from Anne Hathaway to Emmy Rossum to Jennifer Lawrence, but there were also a few standout ladies who decided to split from the pack and go for shorter silhouettes. Marion Cotillard stunned in a floral-embellished, tea-length Zuhair Murad dress, while Leslie Mann pumped things up in a petal-pink Honor dress that hit right at the knee. To round things out, Nina Dobrev stepped out in a showstopping teal embellished minidress by Monique Lhuiller, accented with a sexy keyhole cutout and bell-shaped skirt. We're loving these unique looks — and the fact that these three bucked the trend and went with something a bit shorter for last night's event can only be applauded. Are you a fan of the short-dress trend? Let us know below.
Poppy Delevingne stepped out in style for Chanel's Little Black Jacket exhibition in London on Thursday night. The newly engaged style setter hit the scene in a metallic, sheer-panelled mini dress that not only showcased her perfect pair of stems, but also managed to draw attention away from her new bling. Simultaneously stealing the show was Poppy's choice of headwear for the night — she sported a pretty lace cat-ear headband that popped perfectly against her blonde hair and gave her otherwise sexy look a fun, youthful vibe. But what do you think of Poppy's cat ears — do you love the look, or should she have left them at home?
What is the Spring '13 silhouette with the most impact? We're going to argue a case for the bold shoulder. Whether it can be attributed to a yearning for an '80s flashback or for a take-charge power-dressing dynamic, this latest outerwear redux is bigger, boxier, and more striking than ever. In short, we knew these designers meant business when they sent these ultra-structured shapes down their Spring '13 runways. Narciso Rodriguez emphasized his impeccable tailoring with a show of strong angular blazers, Balmain kicked up the volume on its edgy lineup, and Jean Paul Gaultier revisited all things '80s (think Annie Lennox, Madonna, and Michael Jackson all rolled into one). To add to the approach's fashion credibility, Stella McCartney, Barbara Bui, Altuzarra, and Roland Mouret were among the other heavy hitters who presented this look for Spring. And while the verdict's still out (on our end) on if we'll actually be donning this top-heavy trend, we want to know what you think. Is the bold-shouldered look one you'll be investing in?

We saw it coming on the runways this Spring, but Emma Watson just took the dress-over-pants trend for a real-life test-drive at the London screening of her new film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A wallflower she certainly is not, as Emma embraced the bold take on layering in a Christian Dior Couture look — a strapless fit-and-flare cocktail dress and a pair of straight-leg black trousers. Sure, the pieces on their own are all classics — right down to her pointed-toe pumps, but together, they become something a little more fashion-forward. Now we want to know, are they better together or would you have liked to see Emma just pick one?
The higher the hair, the closer to God, ain't that right Lana Del Rey? The "Blue Jeans" singer was outside her hotel in London over the weekend sporting a retro 'do and exaggerated winged eyeliner, reminding us of Amy Winehouse's signature beehive hair and 60s makeup look. Lana's rumoured to be the new face of H&M but this look was after her performance at the Isle of Wight Festival where she performed on stage with a similar volumised 'do. We're used to seeing Lana play around with her beauty looks — in 2009 she went bleach blonde for Keds and matched berry lips with her nails at this year's Met Gala — but this eye-catching style really caught our attention. What do you think of Lana's bouffant hair and kohl-rimmed eyes, love it or leave it?
On first inspection you'd be forgiven for thinking that Charlize Theron is another star on the natural beauty bandwagon at today's MTV Video Music Awards. But look a little closer and you'll see that beautiful golden bronze eye. The colour's been taken all over the lid and underneath the lower lash line with subtle finishing touches of warmed-up cheeks and a dusky pink lip. A natural-looking blow-dry with a side part and flicked-out ends rounds out the look. Thoughts?
