19 Craziest Teen Choice Awards Outfits In History — PHOTOS

While the Teen Choice Awards may not be known as a must-watch red carpet event — most celebs stick to somewhat modest clothing befitting of a younger audience — there have, to my surprise, been more than a handful of quirky costumes at the TCAs. The craziest Teen Choice Awards outfits, while relatively tame in comparison to an MTV awards show, for instance, are just zany enough in their own right to be a must-see. And, in true fashion writer style, I have rounded up the 19 craziest, zaniest, and funkiest outfits of TCAs history.

When I think Teen Choice Awards, young and talented are just a couple of words that come to mind. However, after looking at the red carpets of TCAs past, I can’t help but think that fresh and funky are necessary additions. From early 2000s trends like dresses over jeans to pink neck ties and leather bodysuits, the TCA red carpet is anything but conservative.

If you enjoy a red carpet roundup and plan to check out the TCAs on Jul. 31, or if you are just looking for a celebrity flashback, then go on and have a scroll through the craziest looks that have graced the Teen Choice Awards’ red carpet to date.
