Hits and Misses at the TCAs: Part 1

I like the shoes that Fergie wore to the Teen Choice awards, but the dress is not my favorite. Although together, they go well with each other.

Brenda Song always looks beautiful, but this is not my favorite ensemble of hers. The dress looks alright, but I'm not to fond of the shoes.

I like the look that Emma Roberts had at the Teen Choice Awards. I don't really like the booties look, but with this dress it looks really cute.

I love the outfit that Leighton Meister wore and I love the red shoes that she wore with it. Great color choice to wear with the black and white.

The dress that Megan Fox wore to the Teen Choice awards is probably one of my favorites. It's simple and pretty. And I love the shoes that she wore with it.

I don't really much care for on sleeved ensembles, but Selena Gomez looks nice in this one. She always looks so classy on the red carpet.

I'm not really feeling this outfit, either, that Vanessa Hudgens chose for the Teen Choice Awards. But even so, she still looks good in it.

This dress that Emily Osment chose for the TCAs looks elegant and classy on her and I think the shoes go great with it.

Not so much feeling the dress Ashley Greene wore, but it fits her well and the shoes and hand bad go fabulous with it.

I love seeing Amanda Bynes at the Teen Choice Awards. The simple tube dress she chose is simple and pretty. And I love the hot pink polish she is wearing with it.

The outfit that Alexis Bledel chose is probably my least favorite of the night. It looks like the dress is a little too big, and I don't realy like the shoes with this dress at all.

A.J. Michalka also looked elegant and classy at the TCAs, but again, I'm not too fond of the one sleeved dress look. And I think she should have chose black shoes to go with the dress, instead of nude.

Four Bandslam Beauties

I love this dress that Vanessa Hudgens chose for the premier of her new movie, Bandslam. I think the dress looks great on her and the black accessories look great with the outfit.

The other star of Bandslam, Aly Michalka, also rocked the red carpet at the premiere of the new movie. I'm not really feeling the dress, itself, but I even so, it still looks great on Aly.

I really like the maxi dress that Tiffany Thorton wore to the premier of Bandslam. She looks beautiful in it and I love the updo that she chose to wear with it.

Another dress I loved at the Bandslam premiere was worn by Chelsea Straubb. Its a really pretty dress and she looks gorgeous, as always, in it. And I love the necklace and the shoes she chose to wear with it.

What do you think of these four beauties at the Bandslam premiere?

Who Wore It Best? Miley or Hilary

It's time for another instalment of Who Wore It Best, featuring Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff. Who wore this black and gold shimmer tube dress best? Was it Miley or Hilary? I think the dress is gorgeous and I think it looks great on both girls. However, I think it looks a little better on Miley's darker skin.

Who do you think wore it best?

Cute Ways to Wear...Braids

Braids can be worn all sorts of ways. You can do a simple french braid, or a simple side braid, or a french side braid.

For other ways to wear breads, Zimbio, has a few.

Braids can be incorporated into an updo, with them in the front as seen here on Anne, Nicole, and Jessica. A french braid is also an option, here. Another option is, instead of an updo, just go with a ponytail.

Lauren Conrad is always using braids in here hair, some like the ones above, or like this, where it starts on one side and ends on the other.

Or this style, which I love, and am excited to try, where she has tiny braids in random spots.

For other braided looks go on over to Zimbio and check out the other pictures they have.

One braid style that I found on Celeb Salon, was a really cute style from Kate Hudson.

I really love this style, and I'm excited to try this one out, also.

I hope you have some new hair ideas, and will try some out because I know that I will :)

While researching this week's hair how-to, I found out that Katherine Heigl has a lot of hairstyles to choose from. She is always doing cute, fashionable things with her hair for red carpet events and such, she is a wonderful candidate for this feature.

The next hairstyle is Katherine's "50's Glamour" look.

Step 4- Smooth the other side over hand and work the roll up while securing with pins, pusing them the opposite way you want the pins to go and then turn them back. Take the top section and comb a little at a time while adding to the roll.

A White Dress on Pale Skin...at the Julie & Julia Premiere

I'm not really feeling Amy Adams' ensemble at the Julie & Julia premiere last Monday. I don't know what it is but I really don't think white looks all that great against very pale skin. And her nude heels kind of just blend in. I'm also not really feeling her hair. I'm just not feeling the whole ensemble.

What are your thoughts?

Another women in white at the Julie & Julia premier is Ashley Greene. Although she s also wearing white and has very light skin, I like this ensemble better. Maybe its the fact that Ashley is wearing darker heels, has darker hair, and is wearing dark red lipstick.

When wearing a white dress with pale, white skin, it needs to be worn "right." I think Ashley wears her ensemble better than Amy.

What do you think?
