With categories like “Choice Hissy Fit” and “Choice Lip Lock,” you know you’re in for a wild party at the Teen Choice Awards. Handing out custom-made surfboards as trophies, the awards show honors the year’s top achievement in different areas from films to sports, as voted by young viewers everywhere.
Several of this year’s box office hits like Black Panther and Infinity War competed in the movie categories, while Riverdale, the moody teen drama, was up for 12 nominations in the television field. Our favorite pop divas Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, were also all nominated in the Choice Female Musical Artist.
But, of course, given that the Teen Choice Awards are — as their name implies — are awards chosen by teens, there were plenty of male heartthrobs strutting their stuff on the red carpet. From new boy bands like In Real Life and PrettyMuch to old favorites like Troye Sivan, everyone arrived at the show with youthful, fashionable outfits.
Red carpet veterans K.J. Apa and Cole Sprouse from Riverdale showed us they have excellent fashion taste when it comes to showing off on the red carpet. And this year’s host was someone who’s never afraid of outrageous fashion choices: Nick Cannon, who showed off his abs in rainbow athleisurewear. Though we loved how Foster the People brought a new fifth member of the band to the show: an adorable English bulldog.
With so many great looks to choose from — including those from the cast of Love, Simon — it was hard to choose the best Teen Choice Awards red carpet looks. But this is precisely the kind of hard work we’re best at — so we were able to bring you our very favorites.
