Teen Vogue’s 10th Young Hollywood Party

Posted on September 28, 2012

Darlings, it was Teen Vogue’s 10th Anniversary young Hollywood party and all the little misses got dressed up all ladylike and shit!



Ariel Winter in Collette Dinnigan

We’re not kidding about that ladylike crack. Ariel tends toward dressing far older than her 14 years. In fact, there have been a couple looks in the recent past that we opted not to feature on the site simply because we knew we were going to sound like Oldie McOlderson, ranting about how inappropriate her outfits are. This is a clear attempt to yank her back from the slutty-dressing abyss. It’s very cute and sweet. We don’t think she HAS to dress this way, but it’s a nice change of pace from the low-cut/high hem/stripper heels looks she’s slowly been turning towards more and more.


Hailee Steinfeld in Louis Vuitton

Ditto Hailee. Although we don’t think she tends toward dressing too provocatively, like Ariel does, but she sometimes dresses far beyond her years.


Jessica Lowndes  in McGinn

 Cute dress. Way too much eye makeup.


Kiernan Shipka in Opening Ceremony

 We’re going to find another word for her, because we keep typing “Adorable!” whenever we see her. But it’s true, right?

Leslie Mann in Rodarte

 It’s a great dress, but it’s awfully heavy-looking. The shoes are kind of tragic.


Lucy Hale in Christian Dior

 Super-sweet look, but her shoes make her look like she has three toes on each foot.


Nikki Reed in Emporio Armani

 Love it. Killer chic. Love the way the shoes visually tie back to the jacket.


Sarah Hyland in Erin by Erin Fetherston

 Looks like someone failed to tell Sarah that boobs are not on the menu tonight. It’s fine, though. A little tight up top.


Victoria Justice in Emporio Armani

We suppose if you’re going to wear a velvet jacket in less-than-cool weather, a bandeau top helps, but it’s weird seeing her skin peeking through above and below the button. Great look otherwise.

    Why do most of them look like bobbleheads?  Is it the photo angle? Because it’s really weird.

    •  Because they really ARE teeny tiny people with overly large heads. A majority of screen actors are.  And the camera isn’t helping one bit.

      • teensmom99

        I noticed this a long time ago about movie stars.  And I think (and no PARTICULAR body snarking meant) that this is what happens when you are too skinny.  Your head stays the same size and rest shrinks, leading to bobble head.

        •  It’s a particular look that works onscreen but seems weird in person or in particular still pictures.

        • I think this also happens because of people holding the camera up high and using wide angle lenses.

  • Sobaika

    Nikki Reed! Love it, head to toe.

  • Wow, in that dress and make up/hairstyle combo Hailee looks 30. 

    • tereliz

      Which explains why I want to wear her outfit out to cocktails at the W bar.

      • And I’ve no doubt you would look smashing.

        • tereliz

          Yeah, until my feet start hurting from those sandals and I pull my Fold-a-Flats out of my purse. Leopard is a neutral, right? 

          Wrangler, hold my shoes!

      •  I’d love that outfit for me, as well, and I’m more than twice her age (ouch).

    •  I love her hair like that though.

  • afabulous50

    Sarah Hyland looks strung out…

    • teensmom99

      Sarah H has a kidney condition, I think and she often looks not 100% healthy.  I don’t say this in a body snark way (2nd time I’m pointing that out for this post) but rather to say that sometimes I think it helps celebrate looks and diversity to see someone who isn’t 100%.

      • NC_Meg

        Oh wow, I had no idea (and I’ve watched Modern Family since the middle of the first season.) I noticed that sometimes she looks healthier/more put together (even on the show) than other times but didn’t think anything of it. 

  • imspinningaround

    Kiernan Shipka and Hailee Steinfeld give me hope for Hollywood’s future. 

    •  I like your avatar. 🙂

  • Laylalola

    Those very early teen years are tough to get right, fashion-wise — not old enough to go for sexy yet and not a preteen anymore (Kiernan Shipka is adorable all the time right now, and might well be forever, but she’s 12, and I’m guessing over the next four years we’re going to see some uncomforatble fits and starts on the runway).

    • What’s worse is when they turn 18 and all hell breaks loose and they think they can wear as little amount of clothing as possible.  I would not care to be in the lime light from ages 13-30.  

      • RebeccaKW

         When I have to go to the mall, I cringe at the shorts.  I mean, 13 year old girls should not own shorts that are barely longer than underwear.  I don’t mean they should wear shorts to the knees, but there has got to a happy medium.

        • NC_Meg

          I’m 24 and built like a 14 year old. Do you KNOW what a nightmare shopping for shorts is?! I don’t want booty shorts nor do I want Bermudas.

          • RebeccaKW

             Yes, I can’t figure out what the thinking is on the shorts front.  Either almost bikini bottom or short capris.  Whatever happened to mid-thigh lengths?

    • RebeccaKW

       I wonder sometimes, too, if the character they play influences how they dress.  Like in Ariel’s case, her character is nerdy, not into fashion, etc.  So in real-life, to separate herself from that, she tends to the opposite of the spectrum.

      • teensmom99

        Clearly Ariel tries to demonstrate that she is not the unattractive nerd she plays.

  • MrsMaxPower

    Well, at the least the hair here is better than the Emmy’s, right? 

    • AudreysMom

       hmmm… for at the Keirnan love here I’m not a fan of the Heidi braids.

  • Kiernan Shipka WERQ. Not baby-WERQs, it’s condescending; she has consistently great style. Killing it.

    • tereliz

      I know. She always looks so put together and polished. More than that, she looks happy to be here. Also, I want her shoes. All of them. In size 9. 

    • Soren Lundi

      Kiernan Shipka is wearing the dress that Chloe Sevigny wore months ago and we all agreed was a Kiernan Shipka dress!

  • ChaCha_70

    Kiernan IS adorable. I can’t find another word either. Her stylist is a winner and I love her happy smile…which is very unlike Sally Sourpuss Draper.

  • Leslie Mann’s shoes are more than kind of tragic.

    • Introspective

      yes. they look like contraptions. used for torture. combined with the heavy dress, she looks cray.

    • charlotte

       I don’t like her dress either. Didn’t like in on Aubrey Plaza, don’t like it on her.

      • S_Swift

         Not my fave dress on either of them but Aubrey looked a lot better in it than Leslie does. And those shoes… *shudder.

  • Kiernan does look adorable, although those shoes are a tad ugly.  She always looks great and age apprpropraite. Leslie Mann is just all sorts of wrong, the shoes are the least of her problems here.  That necklace Haliee is wearing is ridiculous. It looks like a gold collar. 

    •  That’s the point of the necklace, though I don’t know how or why this became a “thing.”

      • Jennifer L.

        I don’t care for the trend either, but I think it might have worked if she had pulled her hair back and let the collar take focus. 

  • Am I the only one who is seeing an unnerving resemblance between Sarah Hyland and 1995’s Courtney Love?

  • Kiernan Shipka, showing ’em how it’s done.

  • alyce1213

    Kiernan Shipka – dayum, she even got the perfect shoes!

    ETA: What is Leslie Mann doing in there?

    • “I know… you’re right. I’m so sorry, I fuckin’ hate this job. I don’t
      want to be the one to pass judgement, decide who gets in. Shit makes me
      sick to my stomach, I get the runs from the stress. It’s not cause
      you’re not hot, I would love to tap that ass. I would tear that ass up. I
      can’t let you in cause you’re old as fuck. For this club, you know, not
      for the earth.”

    • I think Leslie and Judd went to chaperone Maude.

      And also cos people love them and they add major cred.

  • MilaXX

    Once again Kiernan shuts it down while looking her age. Not 100% sold on the shoe, but love the dress/bag combo. Completely agree that Areil dresses to old in a tarty kinda of way. but Hailee tends to dress older in a granny kind of way. Happy to see effort was put into dressing their ages for this event.

  • Judy_J

    I’ve tried to come up with another word to describe Kiernan, and adorable just fits.  She always looks so together, so charming, so delightful, so polished.  I tip my hat to her parents, who have obviously been doing it right.  She’s a lucky girl.

  • I’m a little stunned that someone as teeny, tiny as Sarah Hyland could find a bandage tube top that’s “too tight”.  Do they make them in toddler sizes?

    • teensmom99

      sadly they do make the stripper clothes in toddler sizes these days.

    •  Yes she’s tiny, but not unnaturally so for her size, so she still has the boobs that most women that size probably don’t. That’s what makes the top tight.

  • G

    Three cheers for  Kiernan Shipka!  She could teach those 2 or 3 times her age a thing or two about dressing.  Adorable, yes!

  • Has Sarah Hyland always looked like Michelle Trachtenberg?

  • Introspective

    Kiernan FTW. loving her colors.

    Nikki a close 2nd with the B&W chic pants outfit. fab.

    everyone else is a yawn or a wtf.

  • AudreysMom

    Ariel needs to sit down with Hailee over a chai latte and learn how to stylishly dress at 14. And that includes NOT wearing 4″ heels. 

    • teensmom99

      Poor Ariel plays a nerd on tv so in her free time she has to prove she’s cool and sexy.

      • AudreysMom

        and a 14 year old needs to do that wearing stilletos (yes I know that’s not what she’s wearing here)? I’d say she’s trying too hard. Heck Haillee Steinfeld played a 19th century school marm in training. Her stylist made sure she was tasteful, age-appropriate (OK, maybe a little mature at times) but never slutty or sexed up.

        (steps off soapbox)

        • teensmom99

          To borrow your soapbox for a minute, Audreysmom, I wasn’t saying I think Ariel is making the right decision, I’m just thinking about how a 14 year old might want to address the fact that she plays an allegedly unattractive nerd.

  • Nikki Reed wins in terms of what *I* would wear, and Kiernan Shipka (I just love her name!) wins in terms of what I’d want my ~13 yo to wear (if I had one). And she really us utterly adorable. Is it possible to have a mom-crush (as in, I’d love to be her mom)?

  • Also, blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combos these days. Go Kiernan!

  • teensmom99

    Kiernan finally looks like she’s not dressing too young. . . just like a normal teen but a lot better.  And I think Hailee’s dress doesn’t flatter and looks kind of mature.

    • PinkLemon

       I’ll take Hailee’s LV off her hands.

  • Contralto

    Whomever dresses Kiernan Shipka never, ever gets it wrong, that I’ve seen.  She’s precious in the best sense of the word.  While I love that Hailee isn’t showing ALL SKIN ALL THE TIME, that dress does her no favors.

  • Beardslee

    I would let my 16 yo wear Kiernan’s dress for sure. Chic and appropriate.  Lucy’s dress is also nice.

    • AudreysMom

       actually I looked at Lucy Hale and thought, there. That’s what those under 16 year olds could be wearing. Then I looked her up on IMDB. She’s 23. A very nice model for the youngsters.

  • jilly_d

    Regarding a new word for Kiernan: no need to reinvent the wheel. Take a page from Will Ferrall’s James Lipton and go with “scrumtrilescent”. I think it suits her.

  • charlotte

    I knew Kiernan would WERQ it before I even saw her. I thought “Teen Vogue? Kiernan will save the day!”

  • kikisayshi

    Victoria Justice FTW. Love it.

  • I think Ariel Winter’s dress would be better on me. And I am fat and 39. One of us is delusional.

  • nannypoo

    In defense of Hailee Steinfeld, who needs me to intervene on her behalf because she cares so much what I think, it must be hard to keep it all in perspective when designers and fashion magazines are so eager to promote you. I sometimes think she dresses too old for her age, but so far I don’t think I’ve seen her look slutty or provocative.

  • guest2visits

    I know Sarah Hyland is 24-25, but she has such a doll face – it always looks like she has way too much make-up on. Not crzy
    about the boob-top either; for this event, really?   Lots of pretty outfits. Really like Hailee’s and Lucy Hale’s.

  • kcarb1025

    One of these young Hollywood things is NOT like the other……  LESLIE MANN. 

  • That explains the Ariel Winter thing!  Every time I see that girl looking like a Real Housewife, I want to shout at the picture. And then I want to see the picture on your website with a good old fashioned scolding.  You’ve been disappointing me, but now I understand why.  There’s only so many times you can pull a girl aside and say, “you know he’ll respect you more if you don’t give it all away on the first date”

  • lilazander

    Nicky Reed: total 90’s cliche hopelessness (pukey); Vic. Justice: 90’s accepteble, but stil 90’s—digusting outfits.

  • lilazander

    Leslie Mann… Well, always a fantastic sense of humour; no doubt! I just love her.

  • frankystein123

    Ms. Justice should had worn something other than a tube top underneath the blazer.

  • “We’re going to find another word for her, because we keep typing “Adorable!” whenever we see her. But it’s true, right?”

    appealing, attractive, captivating, charming, darling, dear, delightful, fetching, heavenly, pleasing, precious

    I hope this helps.

  • quiltrx

    Victoria looks pretty great, especially compared to her usual “cheap prom dress from the mall” looks.  I’ll forgive her the usually-unforgiveable tube top.

  • AtticWife

    Kiernan Shipkaaaaaaa! I just love her. There is no other time in her life when she’s going to be able to get away with pleats AND a peter pan collar in the same outfit, and yet it’s not nursery-school or twee looking. She just stands there in her perfectly age-appropriate, completely fashion-forward outfits and smiles confidently. Love.

  • Hey, didn’t Kiernan Shipka’s dress almost get Elena eliminated during the Rockettes’ challenge?  

    (*Thank you, thank you, you’re a beautiful audience, I’m here all week!*)
