Selena Gomez and Katy Perry look cheap, tacky at the Kids Choice Awards

Selena Gomez

Here are more photos from last night’s Kids Choice Awards. Once again, I’m just covering the fashion aspect – you can read more about the awards show here. I already covered Kristen Stewart and Heidi Klum here – I thought they were the two best dressed ladies at the event, for what it’s worth. Now let’s get to some of the not-so-great fashion. Here’s Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana. It… I can’t…ugh. Yes, Selena is “of age” so maybe this outfit isn’t technically in appropriate, but really, it’s a kids’ show. Selena should be wearing more than a half-bustier and a short skirt. She’s a pretty little thing, but this just feels WRONG.

The Smith family was out in full force, all of them trying way too hard to look… cartoonish…? Is that the goal here? Jada Pinkett looks awful, Jaden looks like he spent hours working on his look, and Willow… well, I just feel bad for Willow. I feel like she’s having a hard time with her career, with her parents, with being a kid in a big world. I don’t have an issue with her shaved head – it’s fine. She’s a kid. It happens. But she just seems like a sad little girl.

Katy Perry wore this “slime” outfit – her bra thing is supposed to look like it’s made out of slime. I guess the skirt is supposed to look slime-spattered? I hate her hair. I hate the length of the skirt.

Emma Stone in Antonio Berardi. Love it. Wish she would go back to red, but I’m okay with the blonde. The dress is perfect on her.

Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward Couture. Meh.

    It must be tiring to be trying so hard. The Smith family all look ridiculous, with Jada winning the prize for most eye-roll inducing try-hard.

      It is horryfying to see what Hollyweird does to its young’uns.
      Only a year ago both Jaden and Willow seemed poised on the verge of HUMONGOUS fame and fortune, with career paths wide open and already at the heights that it takes ‘regular folk’ years to approach. They were called ‘moguls in the making’, the ‘future of Hollywood’ etc. Even as a family they seemed rock-solid, indestructible.
      Oh, what a sad, sad change in such a shot time! The kids both look disappointed, depressed and seriously disillusioned. I’m sure the home situation can’t be helping, but still it is more likely the ‘professional’ downfall that is to blame. I wish someone told them that there is more to life than fame, Hollowood, next project etc. They have enough money to do whatever they want, they do not have to be beholden to anyone and anything. Yet they both appear, already at such a young age, to be copletely dependend on the fickleness of public adulation, and unable to cope with the real world now that the labels bestowed on them so easily and undeservedly before were takew away.
      They seem to now be poised over a precipice leading down the path trailblazed by Judy Garland and more recently Macaulay Culkin. I truly hope that the parents wake up from the selfish trance they’re in, and actually TRY to help the kids thru this extremely hard period in their lives, both personally and professionally. Only I worry, judging by Jada’s outfit and general demeanor, that they are clueless and in way over their heads.
      I’m very sorry to say that I see every single member of this family minutes away from disintegrating in a spectacular fashion.
      What a waste of young lives that will be. AGAIN.

    • Jackie says:

      ya, and that young girl looks so lost. what truly awful outfits.

    • Carolyn says:

      Yes. Those kids don’t look happy. No young girl that age shaves their head unless she’s emotionally going off the rails in some way. Their parents have a lot to answer for. I’m not buying their cool, happy family image for one second.

    • mssnarnd says:

      A family beard. How truly sad for the kids.

  2. TTG says:

    Agree on all fashion talk. Selena just looks desperate. Gosh these teens have no interesting thoughts. They pick Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and other terrible actors over true talent and way better movies. And what is Halle Berry? Since when has did she become kid and family friendly? Last I read she was trying her best to remove the father of her own child out of their daughter’s life. The Hunger Games fans can be proud that the teenie boppers haven’t made it their own like the twilight crap.

  3. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    Is the Biebs rubbing off on his girlfriend (Lol)? She looks…..idiotic. Really. You don’t wear something like that to the Kids Choice Awards (emphasis on kids) – unless you’re Katy Perry.

    Emma Stone looks lovely. A woman of class. A very rare species, indeed.

  4. NotaHater says:

    I think they all look a little ridiculous, minus Emma Stone. However, it IS the kid’s choice awards. I think celebrities view this as a “balls out” (excuse the expression) type of event where they can dress however they want. They can’t do stuff like that on a normal basis.

  5. MrsBarneyStinson says:

  6. Frayed_Edges says:

    Wow is this the Try-Hard awards? The Smith family look like a sad sad bunch. I feel so sorry for those kids. Their parents marriage is all but over, and then their mom turns up in public with them dressed like some kind of 80′s teenage-nightmare. I’d also LOVE to know who invites Kelly Osbourne to these events. What is her relevance? To anything?

  7. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    That blonde does nothing for Emma. I just googled her age and it said 23; but judging by this picture, I would have said early 30′s. I think true redheads, like Emma and LiLo, look much younger with their natural color.

    • Inari says:

      Emma Stone is actually a natural blonde, although I also prefer red on her.

    • Alexis says:

      Emma in general looks a bit mature for her age, even with red hair. I first became aware of her in Easy A, and I was shocked that they would shunt what seemed to me to be a 30-year-old woman into a high school role. I was shocked to learn she was my age.

      I think Emma pulls off blonde a lot better than Lilo, but I don’t get why starlets think not being unique is the way to go these days. I don’t recall earlier generations of famous redheaded women dying their trademark locks as quick as they could.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @alexis, ITA. Why try and blend in? Being a bit more “unique” is what tends to get noticed, and getting noticed puts the actress at the forefront of a director’s mind. Of course you can take being unique TOO far and alienate yourself (see The Smith family). In Hollywood you’re either try hard (like Katie Perry, GaGa etc.) or a plastic clone filled to the brim with injectables. There are very few unique, stand out individuals.

      • JessCar says:

        She’s only blonde because of the Spiderman promo, she actually makes a point of saying she likes being red haired to be different, as it what made her stand out and start getting roles.

    • Scandoll says:

      I’m sure Lilo went back to red after being mistaken for 66 yr old Debby Harry. My
      first thought was I bet Emma goes blonde to
      avoid a comparison to Lilo…and lo and behold

  8. some bitch says:

    never thought I’d say this, but Kelly Osbourne looks beautiful. The shoes are super cute.

    • brin says:

      I agree, for once she looks good!

    • Jackie says:

      i really like kelly’s shoes too. they are great for this type of event.

    • polk8dot says:

      Are we looking at the same picture?
      I think Kelly looks very overwrought in that dress. The super stiff bustier, in way too heavy and over-stylized black fabric. Juxtaposed with what should have been effortless and weightless lace that can’t even be appreciated because of her ‘posing’. I think the dress is a complete trainwreck, and somehow it feels very plastic-y and contrived. The shoes, in that crazy hot pink, seem locked in eternal screaming match with the dress, plus they make her legs look pudgy, swollen.
      The pinup posing is passe by now. Move on, Kelly, you’re old enough to know better than trying to pass yourself as a sweet and innocent 16 year old.
      And the HAIR? God, who ever told her that color looks good on her? It might look good on my 90 year old granny, had it been washed down to 10 percent intensity. It looks horrible on her.
      The whole ensamble, head to toe, looks like she’s trying sooooooooooooo hard to fit in with the true stars of this generation, like Katie Perry.
      Sorry Kel, you don’t have what it takes to pull it off.
      And I agree – why is she even at these events? She has no talent, no projects or achievements to hawk, and no kiddie-culture cred. Is she there only to later gossip about the fashions on the ‘Fashion Police’? If so, she is working, and should not be shoving her own face into the papps cameras.

  9. Kaboom says:

    Selena Gomez always looks like she’s 13.

    • LAK says:

      doesn’t she? i always think she’s inappropriately dressed for a 13year old!!

    • polk8dot says:

      And being ‘of age’ now, I worry it is only a matter of time before we start noticing subtle changes in her face and body. I bet a nose job is forthcoming, soon, although very delicate, just enough to make it smaller, not enough to scream ‘new nose’. And, oh horror, probably the bolt-ons. Female stars in that age group seem to ‘miraculously’ sprout female curvature overnight.
      She is really pretty now, and I hope she stays that way.
      Her fashion sense though needs major retooling.

    • jwoolman says:

      But she’s not 13, she’s 19. I still don’t see anything wrong or unusual about her outfit. It suits her. If it’s a little bit of cleavage bothering people – good grief, much more than that has been popular among the young set for decades now. Just watch the Disney Channel. There is nothing about this outfit that would make it unacceptable on her old Wizards show. It’s downright conservative! Seriously.

  10. Justine says:

    +++Breaking news+++ Katy Perry looks cheap and tacky +++Breaking news+++

    Um, seriously? The contrary would have made news, but this? She ALWAYS looks hideous. Well, at least she is creative with her looks, but she almost always fails.

  11. shaboo says:

    emma’s dress is gorgeous she looks really pretty

  12. Esmom says:

    Emma S is gorgeous, Katy P is ridiculous. That top looks like a melting jog bra.

    And the Smiths are insane. I wonder if the poor kids even know how to relax like normal kids their age.

    Selena’s skirt and shoes look cute, the top is a rare misstep for her so I’ll give her a pass :)

  13. Iggles says:

    Omg! So much fug! Where to begin??

    Selena Gomez looks 12. It’s disturbing when she tries to dress “sexy”.

    As for Willow Smith – I love her jacket. She has the best look of the three. Her mom, Jada, looks RIDICULOUS with that 80′s style hair! And wow, Jaden is growing up fast…

    Katie Perry looks HORRIBLE in that neon getup! Seriously, she needs a stylist. Clearly splitting with Russell did a number on her…

    Kelly Osbourne’s hair is so WTF??? It’s an ugly color and looks worst with roots..

  14. brin says:

    The Smith family seem to be competing with Nikki Minaj

  15. kiko says:

    the moment i saw Willow i thought poor thing you are so pretty why do you do this to yourself then i saw her mom and everything made sense.if my mom dressed like that i would definitely rock the shaved pink head.i mean come on!Emma Stone who is like 20 years younger can dress better then Jada Pinkett…

  16. LAK says:

    LOL – photo assumptioning the Smith kids who are over it but Mama is all look at me!

  17. lucy2 says:

    Emma looks good, though I agree about going back to the red hair. Kelly looks OK. Katy and Selena look terribly and very cheap. That’s a shame for Selena, she’s very cute, but that sort of get-up is just bad on her.

    I’m sorry, but look at that photo of the Smith family. They look ridiculous.

  18. Agnes says:

    i don’t understand any of these outfits (minus emma and perhaps kelly?). i mean, you leave your house looking like that AND you think “yeah, this looks hot!”???

  19. MizzVJJ says:

    Im 30 and look seriously young for my age. But I dress my age. Stilettos and a short dress if I please. So I think Selena can dress how she wants. Unfortunately she picked a seriously fug outfit. In fact, they all look ridiculous and desperate.

  20. Devon says:

    I didn’t like the white blonde that Emma was rocking for Spiderman but this blonde looks good on her. She’s a natural blond and if she wants her natural hair colour, then let her have it!

    Katy looks like Kelly Kapowski.

    Jada has her left hand in her pocket. Hmmm…

  21. Michele says:

    I loved Emma’s look last night except for the hair. I know she is a natural blonde but she wears red hair so well. I think the light blonde washes her fair complexion out too much. Plus she ends up looking like every other young, blonde starlet in Hollywood instead of a standout redhead! I hope she goes back to the red hair.

  22. Tiffany27 says:

    I watched Katy Perry on SNL last nite……… God she was awful. Almost as awful as her outfit here.

  23. TG says:

    Forgot to comment that the Smith children have probably been raised with enormous self-inflated egos. Their nepotism can only get them so far. The fans are the ones paying their salary so if no one likes their music or whatever than it is over. I have always like Will Smith but lately it seems that he has lost control of his family. And Kelly Osbourne is adorable but I wish she would remove the tattoos on her arms they only accentuate her softness and make her look unclean and fat. And please get rid of that gray/purple hair. Kelly you are awesome and can do better than this.

  24. stacie says:

    The Smiths look like the Griswolds from European Vacation when they shopped for clothes in Italy.

  25. lisa says:

    Kelly and Emma looked great. Selena made a rare misstep. Katy Perry and the Smith family looked like they tried too hard.

  26. My Darling Pinkett says:

    I actually think Selena and Katy look cute. The Smiths, though…just no.

  27. LIVEALOT says:

    I LOVE jada but she makes it so hard when her face is now a rock and her outfit is ???? I feel like her and willow should have switched outfits. Jaden looks the best to me. JUST remembered that Will was host so automatic win for them I guess.

    Like that Katy Perry doesn’t take herself too seriously. Wish she would though at other events. :-/

    I actually like Selena’s color combo (skirt, nails, ring, shoes) MINUS the top

  28. Nancy Perkinson says:

    Kelly O., PLEASE stay home. Can’t look at you and your ugly clothes anymore. Fashion Police…really…?????

  29. Nan209 says:

    Emma Stone seemed to be the only who dressed appropriately – you know for a KIDS show! Short skirts, bra tops and hooker shoes should be reserved for adult functions.

  30. ImpC says:

    Kelly O looks AMAZING! Katy looks ridiculous, I want Willows shoes, THAT IS ALL! Emma does look pretty darn good also.

  31. suzanna says:

    Emma’s dress is so beautiful and fits her perfectly. I think Kelly looks great, but I hate her hair color!

  32. Pretty Kitty says:

    I think Kelly looks Gorgeous..minus that awful hair. Katy perry looks ridiculous as per usual. Selena doesn’t look awful she looks her age..

  33. nina says:

    Katy needs to remember she’s more VH1 than Nickolodeon. I mean, it’s getting embarrassing at this point with her strawberry short-slut fashion.

  34. jwoolman says:

    I though Selena Gomez and Katy Perry looked fine. I’ve seen Selena often on Disney Channel stuff, this wasn’t out of line for what she and others her age wear. It looked nice on her. Katy looked much more normal to me than I’ve seen at other events, but I don’t see her much. She looked good in the outfit and hairstyle though. I was only surprised that Katy didn’t dye her hair slime green for the occasion.

    As for Will Smith’s kids – I always feel sorry for them. They’re being pushed into a limelight for talent they don’t really have yet, opportunities purchased by their parents. Not likely to do well as adults. Willow seems to be having a lot of trouble just being a kid these days, not dealing well with the interparental troubles.

  35. T.C. says:

    Willow is only a little kid people need to lay off her. She actually looks pretty nicely dressed. It’s her mom that looks awful.

  36. Minty says:

    This is an awards show for kids. I don’t know what Selena was thinking. If the blind items about her are true, I guess she’s showing more of her real, not-so-innocent side. Katy Perry often dresses like a cartoon tramp. In this instance, Katy and Selena look like they should be at a hooker convention in Vegas.

    I agree with you, Kaiser: the Pinkett-Smiths are trying way too hard. If they want to get noticed for looking ridiculous, mission accomplished!

    That’s a pretty dress on Emma Stone. I like the ruffles on the skirt. She should have worn a different color, though. The beige/neutral dress and blonde hair just wash her out.

    Kelly’s dress is really cute. It’s in a heavy black, but the shape and detail keep it from appearing too mature and somber. The only downside is it’s on Kelly Osbourne. It would have been better on anyone else.

  37. Reece says:

    The Good: Kelly looks cute! Emma looks cute too. I think the blonde must be for Spiderman. Katy’s shoes.

    The Bad: Kelly’s hair. Selena looks like every other disney kid. Meh. I swear on everything I love I had Katy’s skirt before. But I was also 5 & it was the 80′s.

    The Ugly: The Smiths.

  38. skuddles says:

    The only one who looks good here is Emma Stone. Jada… WTF?? Osborne, just give it up already. And Perry’s skirt looks cheap and homemade – actually that describes her entire look.

  39. Lia says:

    Kelly Osbourne would look better if she didn’t look like she is smudged with dirt everywhere because of those awful tattoos. The dress is cute, and she has the figure to wear it, but she always looks dirty.

  40. Gattis says:

    Selena is not sure to be a child or a girl yet, but she is so lovely. Very well, Emma Stone, she is already a young woman.

  41. Reba says:

    Kelly looks FUG as usual and she’s piling on the pounds… Good! She’s gross and she’ll never be thin like she desires

  42. Lauren says:

    Katy looks more Fugiwug than Kelly. Emma Stone is the only emotionally stable lady in this photo montage. The Smith clan looks very lost & damaged..Jada is bizarre, her daughter needs a mother, not a skeezy old mum-pimp-mmm..proof that money doesn’t replace a stable family. Where is the strip club? Selena is very pretty, her outfit is feminine. I do not like mothers who dress like teenagers..a la Demi & Jada. Grow Up!!

  43. Arianna says:


    emma’s selena’s willow’s jada’s my gosh! want allll

  44. Isa says:

    I know right?!? Red hair really makes you stand out. If my kids ever dye theirs I will be so sad.

  45. It is ME!! says:

    Selena is a gorgeous young lady…..her outfit, though? UGH.

    And Katy’s top looks like she bought a neon green sports bra at Dick’s and attacked it with puffy paint she bought at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.

  46. Jackie says:

    How come we only ever see Jada’s children from Will? Where is his older son? And why is he always left out of things?

  47. emma says:

    Kelly Osbourne… No matter what you do, you will never be pretty. I dont care how much you weigh. Come to terms with this and youl be happier…

  48. kitty bye says:

    The Top one looks like an vintage curtain cut up & blinged lol… & parachute pants hehe been a while since I have seen those… but even if I am not into the outfits I like that they did something “different” but I think you can be different & exceptional & these look like they were home made @ jr high :)

  49. Sakyiwaa says:

    i love the shoes and hate the fashion!

  50. Kim says:

    The Smiths need to teach their daughter humility. She is an untalented, brat! Terrible personality!

  51. Daphne says:

    Emma Stone is the only one that looks amazing. Don’t know why, but I loathe selena gomez. She seems like an airhead addicted to beauty products. *shrug*. I feel for the Smith family. I don’t believe they’re together anymore, and it’s going to take a lot for me to change my mind. Those poor kids. I can’t. even. comment on Katy Perry. Yuck.

  52. Beatriz says:

    WTF is going on with Jada? She looks like she raided Willows closet.

  53. Caroline says:

    Always like what Selena wears, she has a good eye..
    cute skirt+shoes

    Though Emma’s choices look fine by themselves, together they always look a on her.
    For example, those shoes are worn much better by Charlize Theron, Chiara Ferragani… …

  54. cannonball says:

    I can never stand looking at that hard ass face Jada wears. Eat something girl!

  55. Bogz says:

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with Selena Gomez showing her body.The female body itself does not traumatize children.It’s just that the outfit is so ugly!
