Gwen Stefani in Libertine at the Kids’ Choice Awards: ridiculous or cute?

We’re covering some fashion highlights from the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend, which were hosted by John Cena. You can see the full list of winners here. The fact that we’re leading with Gwen Stefani speaks to the fact that there weren’t a lot of big names there. Stefani was in a Libertine button down and Wanda Inylon shorts, which she paired with thigh high boots. Her makeup was very “Barbie styling head,” which is typical for her. In the thumbnails this doesn’t look bad, but she has fishnets on, her shorts are silver metallic and the top is dip dye with a bunch of sequins and junk on it. Paired with black pants and less jewelry it might be ok, but there’s too much going on here. She does get points for her nails, they’re white with slimed tips.


Speaking of getting slimed, here’s Demi Lovato looking like a million bucks in a salmon jumpsuit with split wide-legged pants. In theory I would dislike this outfit, but it works somehow. Her styling really saves this and she looks so pretty with that long lob with a few face-framing highlights. I don’t think she’ll ever be wearing this dress again.



Zendaya was in a slip dress from her new label, Daya by Zendaya. The website is up already and the clothing is very affordable. This dress retails for $38 and you can tell. There’s a 50% off coupon on the site so technically it only costs $19. It was smart of Zendaya to start her own label and to make it accessible to fans I guess. She looks good in everything, but those suede boots are a strange choice. Zendaya was there with her niece!



I don’t have an ID on Heidi Klum’s orange, black and white cap sleeve dress, but it looks like Versace to me. It’s goofy, it’s complicated and this is what she wears to a kids’ show. It’s not too revealing or anything it just has a weird mod military vibe. She’s worn worse.



Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were there with their five year-old twins, Morocco and Monroe. Mariah and Monroe were in Adidas dresses and Nick and Morocco wore matching orange hoodies and shorts. Nick recently quit America’s Got Talent over disagreements with executives about jokes he told in his Showtime special. He always speaks very highly of Mariah and recently said “I have nothing but respect and admiration for that woman. I will never have a bad thing, a negative thing, to say about her.” Check out their branded boots! Those are cute.

    GS’s hair is getting so yellow! She needs to stop with the high lift and go back to bleach and a toner. It’s vile

  2. Shambles says:

    I’m overly annoyed by the fact that Mariah and Nick match their twins. It doesn’t help that their daughter looks like she would rather be home watching a movie, rather than on a red carpet wearing that ridiculous, mommy matching ensemble. Poor girl. I’m sure the whole thing was Mariah’s idea.

      And, of course, Mariah can’t go without wearing something skintight, super short, and cleavage bearing (I guess the long sleeves are supposed to make up for it). Not even for a kids’ show. This woman is exhausting.

      • Geekychick says:

        Maybe it’s the fact that I’m not from UsA, but I don’t see a problem with her dress. Her hooha isn’t falling out, her figure is a body of a woman (human being) so I can’t see the controversy, and her cleavage is just boobs. I mean, kids breastfeed, kids cuddle with their mothers…why sexualize boobs?
        In my circle of friends and my country, this wouldn’t be exactly appropriate for a church, but for a kids birthday? Totally ok, except if you’re very, very conservative.

      • WeAreAllMadeofStars says:

        I think Mariah looks good there. She isn’t inappropriate, and her body looks really nice. Good for her. And the children are beautiful. Look at the wide set eyes on that boy. I’m in a good mood today I think. 🙂

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        I agree 100% with GeekyChick. There’s no good reason why this being the kids choice awards should mean that Mariah needs to dress differently than she usually does. Nothing in any of these photos have been scientifically proven to harm children. 🙂

      • Petee says:

        Yep.Mariah needs to learn it is not all about her and being sexy.

    • Aren says:

      I think it’s cute, but they both seem like they’re trying too hard to engage with the kids for the cameras.
      The kids look like they have no idea what’s happening, and are super uncomfortable.

    Heidi must have A stylist now, she’s looked nice like 3 times lately!

  4. Fallon says:

    Why is Heidi Klum at every show? Does she have ties to this one?

  5. Erinn says:

    I don’t get why most of these people are here. Demi and Zendaya makes sense I guess- but how many kids are listening to Gwen’s “I got a divorce” tour.

    And Nick and Mariah are embarrassing – I really feel for the kids. They have two parents who refuse to grow up – I can’t imagine how frustrating that’s going to be.

    Zendaya’s boots are hideous.

  6. Geekychick says:

    This is the bes Mariah has looked…in years. It just really, everything fits her, it’s not too much, the angles are right, she looks effortlessly sexy and happy. Vow.
    The whole family looks goodand I love how they seem to worked everything out without disrupting children too much, but Mariah is the star of this post for me.

    • AreYouForReal? says:

      Mariah always looks the most comfortable with Nick. He allowed her to be herself without being over-the-top.

      • Petee says:

        I hear him on Howard Stern.That was his dream girl.But reality settled in.Mariah is a diva and I am sure she is very hard to deal with.He didnt get a divorce for nothing.

  7. Beth says:

    It’s the Kids Choice Awards,not like it’s the Oscars. Gwen is fine for the occasion.

    • WeAreAllMadeofStars says:

      I like the clothes. I think they’re very Gwen. Was she supposed to wear a mermaid gown to the Nick Awards?

  8. Lady D says:

    Mariah’s son’s name is Moroccan not Morocco.

  9. Amanda DG says:

    I think Gwen’s “slime” outfit was better than the red carpet one.

    Heidi Klum for the win, she looks amazing. I like her hair, make-up and even the dress.
