The days are growing longer and the temperature is getting warmer, which can only mean one thing: festival season is upon us. It’s time to prepare for short shorts, flower crowns and ridiculous costumes music fans will try to justify wearing to outdoor concerts all summer long. The first weekend of Coachella gave celebrities a chance to connect with their inner EDM flower children, while the MTV Movie Awards posed the challenge of getting dressed up for a formal award ceremony, yet still looking “cool” and “hip” to the kids. Not as easy as it looks.
The 10th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party with Emporio Armani in Beverly Hills was a pretty successful bash last night, judging from the guest-list. Lots of young stars turned up to preen on the red carpet as you can see in our mega gallery below. Nikki Reed and cover girl Victoria Justice stood out from the dresses brigade wearing pants suits. Nikki wore a monochrome Emporio Armani jacket while Victoria chose a red blazer in the same brand with her blank tank and skinny trousers. Sarah Hyland and her Modern Family co-star, Ariel Winter, were lovely in a strapless taupe and black Erin by Erin Fetherstone mini-dress and minimal white Collette Dinnigan frock, respectively. Bella Thorne had her lovely titian hair tumbling down over a black dress and edgy metallic burgundy and silver ankle booties. Lucy Hale looked fresh and so pretty in a printed white and pale Christian Dior Resort 2012 collection dress while Hailee Steinfeld was working it in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. They were just the tip of the iceberg as the ladies kept coming: Leslie Mann (in Rodarte), Kiernan Shipka (who is her stylist and where can we find them), Jessica Lowndes, Cody Horn, Claire Holt and a host of others. It’s gallery time! Who is your best-dressed pick? We think Kiernan leads the pack for us in that Opening Ceremony 2012 dress by far.

By now we’re sure you’ve drooled over the Teen Choice Awards‘ Best Dressed, winced at the Worst, agreed or disagreed with our dream Anastasia Steele, and got the low-down on Beautiful Creatures from actress Camille Balsamo. Now it’s time to sit back, nosh on some dinner and be hypnotized by Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey doing a twist of sorts, Stephen “Twitch” Boss moving like the pro that he is, Carly Rae Jepsen being downright adorable and many other TCA attendees getting silly with us. Warning: GIF wall ahead!
Ridiculous hats — check! Crazy sunglasses — double check! Celebs can be just like us sometimes, especially when it comes to July 4 celebrations. Beyonce, Fergie and the Jenners were just a few of the celebs who couldn’t wait to show the world their fab 4th ensembles. We especially loved the candy-apple red lips on Miley Cyrus and Victoria Justice! And of course some took advantage of the red, white and blue day to show off their hot bikini bods. Tweeting pics from picnics, parties, and poolside, these stars clearly had a blast with fam and friends celebrating Independence Day.
Britney Spears on a Best Dressed List? Who would have thought it possible?! While her shoes weren’t our favorite (accentuate your legs, girl! Skip the bondage braces next time) we’re feeling her LBD and damn, her face! Her hair! She’s glowing — and there’s no baby belly in sight. Also on fire tonight, the very pregnant Beyonce, who stole the show with her glow, her grin and her gorgeous red gown. We’ve got our other faves in the gallery below, including Bey’s Destiny’s Child bestie Kelly Rowland, the classically styled Adele and Taylor Lautner, whose stylist has the casual cool thing down to a science. Well played, kids.
Already one of Nickelodeon’s hottest stars, Victoria Justice is not only staring in the network series Victorious, but has also given us one of this summer’s hottest songs. We can’t lie, we have had “My Best Friend’s Brother” stuck in our heads while working around the office (not to mention on the ride home) all summer long. The teen star is showing all signs of a successful year and future with the release of the Victorious soundtrack next week, as well as the cross-over TV hit iParty with Victorious, in which she co-starred alongside the cast of iCarly. We are proud to see the former Zoey 101 star growing up while making us laugh and dance along the way.
Before tuning into the one-hour movie special Victorious: Locked Up, which airs this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on Nick, take a look at some of Victoria’s hottest looks through the years. (We promise the orange jumpsuit she and her cast mates will be sporting in this week’s episode is not included.)
