Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger in leather at the Billboard Awards: hilarious?

Here we have some of the lesser fashion from last night’s Billboard Awards. We’ll have more coming up for you shortly. Taylor Swift was the big winner and took home eight awards! She won for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Female Artist of the Year among others. In this post we’re talking about some of the lesser celebrities and musicians, and who better to start with than engaged Canadian couple Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger? Neither of these two was nominated for anything, although Avril was a presenter. She wore her best black leather strapless mini-dress paired with ridiculous black gladiator shoes and a few extra applications of liquid eyeliner. She accessorized with stacks of rhinestone (I’m guessing) bracelets and a giant cocktail ring to balance out her huge pear-shaped engagement ring. These two look perfect for each other, don’t they?

Also in black we have Hayden Panettiere, who was unfortunately not accompanied by her hulk of a man, boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko. We’ve heard for weeks that Hayden and Wladimir are engaged and yet she hasn’t been wearing a ring. They were just spotted together last week, so I’m not suggesting there’s trouble, just that I bet Wladimir isn’t as gung-ho about getting married as sources would like us to believe.

Hayden is in Halston Heritage. That’s a gorgeous dress that flatters her but it’s a little conservative for this event. I love her styling! Check out the little gems in her hair and her very understated blush-colored makeup accented with green eyeshadow. She’s so pretty.

Jennifer Morrison is also in black, in one of the unfortunate trends of the night – see through gowns. She’s in a designer I’ve never heard of before, Kristian Aadnevik, and this dress is just awful. It looks like something out of the Fredericks catalog. It’s little more than lingerie with a mesh skirt overlay. Morrison rarely gets it right and needs a new stylist. Something nice – her hair and makeup are well done.

Here’s another see through dress, although this certainly isn’t the last of them – Emmy Rossum in polkadot Zuhair Murad. This long fishtail gown is too fancy and fussy, and it looks bizarre with the mesh paneling. Plus her matronly updo is dragging this look down. She looks hot despite all that though, and I really like her makeup.

Jenny McCarthy wore her best black cotton tank top with a blue cut-out glitter skirt paired with platform ankle boots. Trash to the E. This is actually a whole “look” by Tom Ford. Maybe he’s letting his interns design now that he has a baby at home.

Finally Chloe Moretz, 16, was cute in a Fendi minidress. This dress reminds me of some of Emma Watson’s looks and I really like the bold mix of patterns. It would have worked better with some neutral shoes, those clunky checkerboard shoes are overkill.

    A note for Avril and Chad Kroeger (aka The Paddle Pop Lion)


  2. Apples says:

    What year is it in their world?!

  3. Sabrine says:

    Why are they (Avril and Chad) bothering to get married? It’s not going to last more than a few years at most. They should just ride it out until it’s done and not have to bother with the legal hassles at the end.

  4. Arock says:

    And you know they went to hot topic to get her a accessories. They’re like the capt and tennile of 90s mall culture.

  5. Faye says:

    Why are all these celebs unconnected with music at the Billboard Awards? Is it because ABC hosted them?

    I really like Jennifer Morrison, and think she’s underrated as an actress. But she cannot dress for sh*t at events. I have yet to see her wearing anything vaguely normal or attractive.

    • TheOneAndOnly says:

      Remember faye, except for an actual musician like Prince, this is mostly an industry event pushing industry product.

    • Jenna68 says:

      She’s so pretty, has a great figure, and is so talented. Why does her stylist do this to her?!?!?

      • Faye says:

        I know, it’s so frustrating, right? She’s got so much good material to work with!

        I wonder if it’s her stylist, or if Jennifer herself has “unique” style?

  6. Joanna says:

    I like Jennifer’s dress. She has the perfect figure for it and the under leotard underneath is conservative so yu can’t see her naughty parts. she’s the perfect age to rock it too.

    I think jenny mccarthy needs to let go of the sex kitten look and class it up. she just looks desperate for attention. it even looks like she has her tank top tied in a knot in the back. when you’re older, showing it all off just looks like you’re desperate for attention. she’s used to using her looks, so she doesn’t know how to do anything else.

  7. poppy says:

    all sorts of NO

  8. gogoGorilla says:

    Ugh. Just… ugh. Hayden is the only one who is passably cute, but she needs open-toed shoes with that long dress.

    In general, I hate the see-through dress trend and find it very Frederick’s of Hollywood. I hope it ends soon. Or at least before it trickles into the mall, or I foresee some very traumatizing weddings in the future.

    Additionally, Avril needs to stop hoarding all of the eyeliner of the world.

  9. Ellie66 says:

    I like Emmy Rossums dress she looks good in a paper bag. Jenny looks ridiculous and Advil and boyfriend look like they are going to a 1990s costume party.

  10. emmie_a says:

    Jennifer Morrison looking as trashy as Jenny McCarthy is is not a good thing.

    Jenny’s facial fillers/plastic surgery is also not a good thing.

    Hayden looks cute – but the hair bling is too bridesmaid-ish for me.

  11. siobhan says:

    Avril looks awful with all that eye makeup. Few women can pull of the very heavy eye makeup.I hope she didn’t pay someone to do that to her.

  12. squeakie says:

    why is avril STILL dressing like she shops at hot topic

  13. Bilex says:

    Jennifer, same dress as Selena Gomes wore in her new music vid. Way more appropriate for a music video than an awards event and looked a million times better on Selena.

  14. Cam S says:

    At first glance, I thought Chad was Avril’s Father….

  15. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Good one arock except captain and tenille had talent; these two don’t have the brains or talent to open a pickel jar without assistance – if they procreate guaranteed their offspring (note of pity) will produce the worst music ever.
    After I read that sweet avril spit on some journalist awhile back, she inhabits the lowest region in hell as far as i’m concerned. I think the incident’s on youtube.

  16. bridget says:

    Perhaps Jenny is in a dress by A Tom Ford, not THE Tom Ford.

  17. Tiffany says:

    It makes me wonder if those two will make it down the aisle. I have this on demand music channel and sometimes bands are interviewed. Douche and one of his bandmates sat down and the guy said that with them growing up and having families of their own they want Chad to go easy on the misogynistic lyrics and he said that he did not care and will continue to do so. His bandmate face said it all. Then the engagement came. Yeah…….

  18. wonderwoman21 says:

    Emmy Rossum’s dress would have been beautiful if the sheer paneling was only on top and left off the skirt.

  19. Abby says:

    Emmy rossum is so pretty!

    I just have to laugh at Avril and Chad. He looks a heck of a lot better than he used to.

  20. Nudgie says:

    Avril and Chad coming to E! (produced by Seacrest) in a new reality show called “I’m a bad-ass rocker!” “NO, I’M a bad-ass rocker – and a punk!”

    ALL 100%, non-scripted (excepted for a FEW notes) and brought to you by RONCO’s “One-Hit Wonders of the 90′s”

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    I agree with you about Jennifer Morrison. Such a beautiful woman; such a try-hard, unflattering dress.

    I really liked Emmy Rossum’s outfit except the bottom half should have been opaque. She looks absolutely gorgeous too.

  22. Melissa says:

    I actually like Chloe’s checkerboard shoes!

  23. Lucy says:

    This makes me sad. I love Avril, but hate the fact that she’s engaged to that massive douchebag. I also dislike her outfit (and his face). Oh, well. Chloe looks lovely, though! And I liker her shoes, but with that outfit.

  24. Lex says:

    Jenny McCarthy (by the way, what is she famous for? not being bitchy… genuinely do not know) – would fit perfectly if it were an award show in the 90s. In a way the 90s were cool like that – stars (not calling her one…) could wear jeans/singlets to award shoes but still be cool
    It is only haute couture these days and it is so tired!

  25. lisa says:

    jenny mccarthy has a case of the tries too hards

  26. lettylynton says:

    Avril looks great; I hate her music in general but really like her style. And I think Jenny McCarthy looks amazing! She’s still so hot.

  27. TheWendyNerd says:

    I used to shop at Hot Topic all the time. I thought I was hot shit, rebel rebel and all that. Then one day I realized how lame it was that I and so many people were buying into the idea that they were purchasing non-conformist “underground” stuff— on the top floor of the fking mall.

    I was fourteen.

    How old is Avril again?
