Kids' Choice Awards 2014 Red Carpet: The Good, The Bad, and The Quirky

Winter may be the time when serious awards show like the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, and Academy Awards take place, but it’s spring when the awards shows really get fun, with events like the MTV Movie Awards and the first-ever iHeartRadio Music Awards taking place. And this past weekend, the first of these more casual awards shows — Nickelodeon’s 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards — took place, with a slew of celebrities hitting the orange carpet to show off their style. And that style was definitely a sight to behold, as some stars nailed their looks, while others missed the mark entirely. Who topped our best and worst dressed lists? Here's your answer.

Best: Lea Michele

We may not be big fans of those blunt bangs, but the Glee star looked gorgeous in her lace, corseted Elie Saab dress, which she completed with a voluminous skirt, bright pink lips, and a platform pump.

Worst: Victoria Justice

We’re sure finding a dress that doesn’t clash with the orange carpet is a challenge in itself, but the Disney star didn’t quite pass the test in her wildly patterned Atelier Versace mini and open-toed black pumps.

Best: Jayma Mays

This Glee star, however, found a way to make a pattern work in her favor, looking adorable in a floral-printed Timo Weiland number complete with sheer paneling and shiny, gold heels.

Worst: Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting

Sure, Cuoco’s blazer-and-shorts combo from Rebecca Minkoff had the potential to be great, but the too-baggy fit, too-clunky shoes, and too-wacky hair ruined any chance of making the best dressed list.

Best: Christina Milian

Rocking a kaleidoscope-printed Nasty Gal maxi and a wrist full of turquoise bracelets, the singer looked bright, colorful, and perfectly casual on the orange carpet.

Worst: Tia Mowry-Hardrict

We didn’t hate the scribble print or the color-blocking on Mowry’s Versace dress, but the straight cut didn’t do her figure any favors, while the heavy, strappy sandal does nothing to elongate her legs.

Best: Bella Thorne

Everyone loves a redhead in green, and Thorne in this emerald Valentino romper — which she paired with metallic pumps and long, curled tresses — was no exception.

Worst: Zendaya Coleman

We’re all for the singer expressing her individual style — after all, it’s resulted in some interesting looks — but pairing an embellished Oscar de la Renta top and quirky Chanel shoes with distressed denim shorts on the red carpet is taking it too far.

Best: Zoe Deutch

Deutch showed everyone how to wear shorts on the red carpet the right way, pairing her adorably printed Osman number with a simple clutch and ankle-strap heels.

Best: America Ferrera

Ferrera may have been opting for pretty dresses lately to promote her Cesar Chavez film, but we’re loving the edgy turn she’s taken her with her navy-and-black Veronica Beard suit and faux-hawk hair.
