The 2014 Teen Choice Awards were held last night, Sunday, August 10 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.  Hosted by Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, the big winners of the night were Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, One Direction, Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence.

It was a fantastic red carpet this year, and we had trouble choosing our best dressed!  Hills2City were immediately wowed by Glee star Lea Michele, who wore a black, white and pastel pannelled mini dress by Fausto Puglisi and silver strappy heels by Christian Louboutin.

Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell wore one of the sexiest looks of the night, wearing a white lace two-piece look from Misha Collection.  The show won the award for Choice Drama and Shay won for best hair in our opinion!  She wore her hair in a loose side braid, which has become one of the hair styles of the summer.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians won the award for Choice TV Reality Show and it was Kylie Jenner’s 17th birthday, so it only seems right that the youngest Kardashian beat her sisters in the style stakes.

Kendall may be the model of the moment and Kim looked gorgeous, but in Hills2City’s opinion it was Kylie who really stood out.  She wore a cropped black top and gold skirt with an asymetrical hem by Sass & Bide, accessorizing with a pair of lace-up black heels.

Best Dressed: The 86th Academy Awards

“These aint no slashies folks, these are the pure breeds.”  This is not only one of our favourite quotes from Zoolander, but could equally be describing the difference between all other award shows, and the Academy Awards, as this is the night where the fashion big guns come out to play.

The 86th Academy Awards were held last night, Sunday, March 2 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.  Hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and featuring big wins by 12 Years A Slave and Gravity; the best actor and actress awards went to Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett.

Matthew’s co-star in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, and Oscars presenter Kate Hudson struck Hills2City immediately as a Best Dressed contender; she looked elegant and very Old Hollywood in a white silk gown by Atelier Versace.  In a look that could’ve come straight from American Hustle, Kate’s dress was cut down to the waist, and featured a back detail that hung from her shoulders.

Lupita-Nyongo-Oscars-2013-Prada-820x1105

Newcomer Lupita Nyong’o won the Best Supporting Actress award for her amazing role in 12 Years A Slave.  As well as her beautiful acceptance speech that left people in tears, Lupita’s style shined brightly.

Just like Kate Hudson’s gown, Lupita’s Prada gown featured a deep-v neckline, but instead of a slinky silhouette, kicked out from the waist to give a real prom-queen effect.  Lupita wore a gold headband, gold and diamond studs and a gold bracelet to compliment her gown.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson was a presenter at last night’s Oscars, and was another of Hills2City’s favorite looks of the event.  The Harry Potter star looked elegant, yet also quite directional in a gown by Vera Wang.

Emma and co-presenter Joseph Gordon-Levitt immediately struck MTV and E! as “the Oscars fantasy couple.” MTV suggested, “The big takeaway was, undoubtedly, that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emma Watson should be a couple. Or star in a rom-com together. Or star in a rom-com together and then become a couple.”

The 2014 Golden Globe awards were held in Los Angeles, California, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, on Sunday, January 12.  The big winners on the night were American Hustle, Breaking Bad, Behind The Candelabra, House of Cards, Ray Donovan and Blue Jasmine. 

Hills2City’s best dressed for the night had to begin with Taylor Swift in Carolina Herrera.  The Golden Globe nominee, for her song Sweeter Than Fiction from One Chance, went for an Old-Hollywood vibe, wearing her hair in loose curls and focussing her make-up using red lipstick.

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts’ show American Horror Story: Coven didn’t win its category, although Behind The Candelabra was a hard one to beat.  Emma was a winner for her red carpet gown for Hills2City however; this black Lanvin gown was a particular favorite. 

Emma, who is newly engaged to her American Horror Story: Coven co-star Evan Peters, let her gown be the focus, wearing her hair slicked back and accessorizing with turquoise earrings and a black clutch bag.

amy adams

American Hustle star Amy Adams wore a beautiful two-tone halter dress by Valentino, that was very much in line with the 1970’s era her nominated film was set in.  Amy wore her hair up in french braids and accessorized with delicate silver jewelry.

Amy, who won the Best Performance By An Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical award, also shared her tips for wearing such a gown with E! on the red carpet, saying,  “Good posture and very kind castmembers who give you a little wink if you’re showing too much.”

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis may not have a film nominated in this awards season, but the actress and Globes presenter wow-ed the red carpet in Gucci for the 2014 Golden Globes.  Ashton Kutcher’s lady love wore a metallic grey gown by Gucci Premiere, and accessorized with a Gemfields emerald bangle and earrings.

Girls star Allison Williams was one of Hills2City’s best dressed of the night, in this gorgeous structured dress by David Koma.  Allison accessorized her blue and white dress with a pair of pointed toe pumps, and wore her hair in a simple chignon.

Allison also features on Elle magazine’s cover this month, as one of the magazine’s cover series on television actresses.  She shared with Elle that she’d like to achieve something similar style-wise as Jennifer Aniston, explaining, “I wanted to establish a baseline: Here’s what I look like, I have long brown hair, I wear this kind of dress, this is the deal. You can count on it!  Look at Jennifer Aniston: she’s America’s sweetheart for a reason. You know what she’s going to look like when she shows up to something, and there’s something so comfortable in that.”

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson was another standout for Hills2City on the People’s Choice red carpet.  Jennifer wore an elegant white body con dress by Kaufman Fanco, which she accessorized with a pair of white heels with an ankle strap, and clear band across the toes. 

The singer and actress won the favourite humanitarian awardon Wednesday night, and gave a heart-wrenching speech, saying, “My mother always taught us without family you have nothing. Whether you know it or not, we all are family. What happens to the other happens to us. It’s one thing to be a celebrity and have power, but it means nothing if we’re not making a difference and helping someone else.”

Sara Bareilles

Singer Sara Bareilles was a stand-out favorite for Hills2City; wearing a Jil Stuart black dress that featured cutouts and a white collar and cuffs.  The Grammy nominated singer , who performed her song Brave at the People’s Choice Awards, accessorized with black and red Moschino heels and a white Charlotte Olympia clutch.

Following on from the Golden Globes red carpet arrivals, the InStyle And Warner Bros. Golden Globe Party was held inside the The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday, January 13.

Sophia Bush steped out in a V-neck white sleeveless gown by Lisa Ho paired with Casadei shoes, jewelry by Amrapali and a silver metallic DVF clutch. Besides showing off her very stunning figure, Sophia also debuted some heavy bangs to the party.

Hills2City love the fact that Sophia went for a completely different hairdo than she usually does, keeping her hot-pink lips and shimmering eye shadow in check.

Recently single Selena Gomez went for a gorgeously golden look. The actress posed in a strapless, shining Atelier Versace dress paired with heels by Jimmy Choo heels and some Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Selena completed her look wearing her voluminous and wavy hair down and some smashing makeup containing thick lashes and quite the eyeliner line with pink-ish lip gloss.

Hills2City loves when the stars either suprise or take a risk at high profile events. A real stand-out for us, Nina Dobrev hit the carpet in a turquoise Oscar de la Renta dress paired with some silver Jimmy Choo heels linking her silver metallic belt.

Nina wore her hair in a classy, oversized bun with a lower braid beneath it, completing the look with glossy lips and a touch of dark cat-eye makeup.

It’s time to kick off the first best dressed list of 2013, starting with the 70th Annual Golden Globes, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday, January 13.

It’s no surprise Nicole Richie is on our list, having really kicked her red carpet appearances up a notch in 2012; this trend looks to continue this year too. Nicole wore a light blie lace Naeem Khan gown from the Spring 2013 collection, accessorizing with a black clutch from her own House of Harlow collection, H. Stern earrings and rings by Sylva & Cie, Elahn and Arunashi.

Megan Fox dazzled us in a Dolce & Gabbana nude strapless gown, with a fishtail hem. She styled the gown with Jimmy Choo heels, bright pink earrings and some to-die-for curls.

Megan scored highly on many of the best dressed lists on Sunday, looking absolutely sensational beside husband, Brian Austin Green, who was actually the one who picked out the dress for her.

Kate Hudson wore a gorgeous vamp-y black Alexander McQueen gown, with a small train.  Kate accessorized with Jennifer Meyer jewelry, and wore her hair down in a slight wave.

MTV EMA's 2012 - Red Carpet Arrivals

2012 brought us a lot of great fashion, especially on the red carpet with the likes of Taylor Swift, Whitney Port, Ginnifer Goodwin, Emma Stone, Selena Gomez and Mila Kunis.

One of our faves from Taylor was this stunning white gown she wore to the 2012 MTV EMA’s, which were held in Frankfurt, Germany, on Sunday, November 11.  Taylor looked every inch the American Sweetheart in this white form-fitting dress that flared out into a fishtail at the hem.  She wore her hair down, and kept her makeup focussed on the eyes.

Whitney Port was another stunner in white on the red carpet in 2012; her white and silver textured dress was worn to Elle’s 19th Annual Women in Hollywood celebration on October 19, in Beverly Hills.

Whitney’s cut-out dress was by ASOS, and she accessorized with a pair of nude and silver strappy heels and silver jewelry.

Hills2City are still crushing on Emma Stone, who didn’t disappoint in the style stakes in 2012 one bit.  To the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, the Gangster Squad star wore a gorgeous nude and black Martin Grant dress paired with nude shoes, and wore her blonde hair back in a retro-inspired french roll.

Mila Kunis really made a huge hit in 2011 in the fashion-stakes, and continued her trajectory in 2012.  This stunning black Christian Dior gown that Mila wore to the 2012 Golden Globes was one of our favorites from the year, which the actress accessorized with diamond drop earrings and a diamond cocktail ring.

ginnifer-goodwin-011112-207

It was Ginnifer Goodwin who kicked things off for us in 2012, so it’s only fitting she is also our final star to grace this Best Of post!  Ginnifer was a stand-out style star on the red carpet for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards; in this hot pink Roksanda Ilincic dress, with fluted sleeves, she was certainly Hills2City’s choice.

Ginnifer’s dress really showed off her pale skin and dark hair, as well as evoking a real 1960′s vibe.  She accessorized with a pair of lace detailed booties, diamond drop earrings and a black leather clutch.
