Naya Rivera in Alice + Olivia at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Posted on August 12, 2013

We’re feeling a lot of things right now. It’s hard to pin down.

 

Naya Rivera attends the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California in an Alice + Olivia bra top and pants paired with Le Vian jewelry, and Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps and clutch.

Alice + Olivia ‘Erika’ Bra Top.  Alice + Olivia ‘Arthur’ Pants

Because sure, she looks hot in the sexytimes kind of way and yes, these are the Adolescents Making Choices Awards, where one is expected to grab the spotlight, and of course, one way to do that is to wear something crazy, and you’re absolutely right, it is a venue that allows for more than the usual amount of skin to be deployed on the red carpet.

But ohhhhhhhh, HONEY. This is so very not working for us right now. We think we could get behind the bra (so to speak), but not when it’s paired with the baggy leather capris and the 1986 prom shoes. You’ve got the bod and good for you, but we’re not loving the way it’s being shown off here, doll. Not that you care what we think. God forbid some of you should listen to us.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Choosy teens choose leather, apparently.

    • marlie

      That’s… awful. PLEATED LEATHER PANTS, people.

      • kimmeister

        Pleated leather CROPPED pants. I can’t think of a single scenario in which they would work.

        • Emily

          Or are acceptable.

      • majorbedhead

        Pleated leather CAPRIS. I just…I can’t even.

        • mlle

          With POCKETS.

          • eck

            And BELT LOOPS, but NO belt.

            • Rhonda Shore

              Disastrous.

      • crash1212

        Pleated leather cropped CUFFED pants. I can’t even.

      • Jessica Freeman

        You read my mind. PLEATS?!?!?

    • Julie Chase

      Trying way too hard.

      • VioletFem

        And she doesn’t really need to. There is a happy medium between pulling a Jolie and trying way too hard.

    • flamingoNW

      Well, I MIGHT have liked this if she’d kept her damn hand out of her pocket, or her thumb or whatever the hell she’s doing with her pocket. It’s like she’s trying to hide some flaw with the pants. It MIGHT have worked. We’ll never know.

    • Karen Belgrad

      Note to Naya: Attending Cher’s garage sale is not to your benefit.

    • NMMagpie

      I’m feeling no.

    • Darcy H

      If she had paired that with some classier (read: any other) pants or skirt and good lord some other shoes I could totally see her pulling off that… top-type-thing. But alas, not so much.

    • SophiaPehawkins

      She wore a similar top on Jimmy Kimmy. She’s really pretty, but just ’cause you got the body, doesn’t mean you have to show it.

      • flamingoNW

        better than the way Britney shows it off

      • Cz

        It’s like money and brains. The more you show it off, the less people appreciate it.

    • mlle

      When your shoes are shinier than your jewellery, you need to reconsider.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Oh cool, Lisbeth Salander is moonlighting as a stripper now!

    • http://twitter.com/aynaborrell Anastasia

      Ugh, she pulled a similar look on Kimmel a few weeks ago, too. Gwen Stefani is the only one who can consistently pull off the washboard abs shirts, eeeespecially if it’s this kind of material. Too much.

    • mjude

      the more i see this look the more i just dont care for it.

    • In_Stitches

      baggy, cropped leather pants are never the answer. I’d have liked it more if she’d gone full on sexy with a tight, high-waisted leather pencil skirt or tight leather pants. Both of those options will still make her look cheap, but at least she’d look hot doing it (and not in a temperature way).

    • AmeliaEve

      The pleats. Oh God, the pleats. The pleats on low-rise leather pants.

    • mmebam

      Go home, pants. You’re drunk.

    • Just Me

      Sadly, if Miley had worn this I would give it a standing ovation, such is the power of the Miley Scale of What the Fuckery…but on a supposedly normal person who should hopefully know better? Girl, please. You look too old for this shit and the pageant hair with this outfit is not helping your cause. Sorry.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Interesting theory. Though Miley would have worn white shoes, and made rigoofulous faces, killing any style she may have been bringing to the party.

        • Just Me

          I would have just been happy to no be in danger of looking at her nether regions. This outfit would have been just about “normal” on the Miley scale…sadly.

    • kimmeister

      I’m sure those shoes cost more than my mortgage, but they look very cheap.

    • bellafigura1

      I love the pants, although not with her tugging on ‘em.

    • MilaXX

      This look feels more VMA or BET awards than teen choice. That said, I wouldn’t mind the outfit as much with a different pair of shoes & possible a different bag as well.

    • hughman

      Botoxing the shit out of your face does not make you look more like a teen, dear. I don’t care if you do end up 40 and still playing a HS student on some jumped-the-shark wailathon.

    • Rand Ortega

      Way too Kardashian for the classy albeit very sexy Miss Naya. This is a disappointment. & those shoes…

    • GorgeousThings

      In the hair/makeup closeup she looks like she’s channeling a Kardashian.

    • Telperion

      Hmm, lately I’ve been getting the vibe of Kim Kardashian 2.0 from her. This is … not helping me change my mind.

    • nowlo

      The outfit’s not right for this event or the season (black leather pants + bustier in August?) and it’s pretty ugly to boot. Those pants are simply horrendous.

    • filmcricket

      She seems determined to turn herself into a Kardashian, I don’t know what’s up with that. She’s a gorgeous young woman who used to have her own unique look and now … this. She’s still hot, but she doesn’t look like herself anymore.

      And normally I wouldn’t care about how much skin someone flashes, especially at the TCAs, but on a night when the cast was there to pay tribute to Cory Monteith, I find this a touch tacky.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Word. On all fronts.

      • sekushinonyanko

        It is in all black.

    • MW

      I’m choosing to believe that Naya and Miley were on their way to some adult awards and accidentally stumbled onto this. They only had enough time to change their shoes.

    • Little_Olive

      That bra is a bold choice, which she can get away with but paired with some sort of jacket and different pants.

      Also, I thought she had more of a waist. Huh.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      And,…showing up at an event about teens means you should dress like a 20$ hooker?

    • Amy909

      I agree with all of the kardashian comments.. i’m also getting a pussycat dolls vibe, which in my opinion, is not a good thing.

    • joancarol

      Kim Kardashian.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        i wich world kim would wear a bra like that???

    • Kayceed

      She looks like a backup dancer for a ’90s awards show.

    • Maika

      Wow, I genuinely never realized she’d done that much to her face, those obvious breast implants aside. Regardless, this outfit is one embarrassing plea for attention.

      I also never noticed her complete lack of a figure until now.

      • sekushinonyanko

        Honestly I think she’s quite a bit skinnier than usual at the moment. Because generally she gives vavavavoom when she wears tight/skimpy things. I think a lot of the “that doesn’t look like her” is because she’s so thin.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I think her make up is flawless. The rest is just tacky tacky tacky.

    • Tracy_Flick

      The two pitfalls of leather are tastelessness on one end of the spectrum, and Hefty-bag-like on the other. Takes talent to hit both of those in the same outfit.

    • JauntyJohn

      Just as an aside, and I do not mean this in a pejorative way at ALL, but for those of us old enough to remember the 20th Century, that on the Teen Choice Red Carpet this outfit doesn’t even cause a significant ripple shows how much we’ve all changed. Not saying for the worse (or better) just sayin’.
      Perfect makeup, I could get behind the Gladiator Bra if the bottom half were smart and chic, of which those pants are neither.

    • DominoEstella

      this is god awful! At least put on a belt.. this is a disgrace.

    • jen

      I had a very strong negative reaction to this look. Girl. NO. You have a super smokin’ bod but this is not the way to show it off!

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Great hair, makeup and body, but attention-grabbing and stylish are not interchangeable.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      This is causing me to lose my lady boner for Naya. And that gives me a big ol’ sad.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Alice + Olivia Ericka Bra Top. That A+O have called it a “bra TOP” is reassuring – otherwise I would have thought that she left the house in just her brassiere.

    • LadyCelia

      Seriously unflattering pants and shoes.

    • ConnieBV

      Those pants are what I’ll see when the good Lord sends his chariot for me and I will know it is the end of days. This was crying out for a 50’s skirt with an interesting print.

    • Glam Dixie

      The hair and makeup are working for me here so I guess from the boobs up she looks great. Pleated leather capris? Oh honey, no. The shoes are awful, the bod is slammin’.

    • Warrior89

      Just trying to imagine sitting in this outfit without making tummy rolls. I suppose she could do it, but still, skin folds, am I right???

      • filmcricket

        Amazingly enough, she can do it. As someone said upthread, she wore a similar get-up on Jimmy Kimmel not too long ago, and her tummy was, no lie, just as flat when she was sitting down. I am in serious awe of her bod, I just don’t think this outfit’s doing it the favours she thinks it is.

    • Anniebet

      Justin Bieber wants his pants back.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      I love LOVE love everything from the waistband up, and nothing below that. I can’t really see the clutch to comment.

      I almost wish she went full on 90s hip hop and did ultra baggy (non-leather) pants with this. En Vogue/Salt N Pepa/SWV realness.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Oh, how I wish this was an IN OR OUT post, because I would vote OUT so hard.

    • TAGinMO

      Hmmm. Well, I seem to be alone in pretty much unreservedly liking this. To me, the bagginess of the pants sort of balances out the fact that she’s wearing only a bra up top, keeping the ensemble from veering from “sexy” into “trashy.” Shoes are interesting, too.

    • eck

      If you hadn’t told me that was Naya I would have sworn it was a photo of Kim K. five years ago. Setting aside the freakish cropped pleated leather pants and the matching black talon nails (OMG, I can’t believe I actually typed that!!) I can’t get over how much work she’s apparently had done to her face this summer.

      • Telperion

        They are leather nails too.

      • conniemd

        How do you tell Botox? I’m not that familiar with this woman, but to me her face looks squishy and ill-defined. I wouldn’t call her beautiful at all, based on these pictures.

      • sweetestsith

        I’m not sure she’s had work done, I’m personally leaning towards some SERIOUSLY aggressive contouring. But I could be wrong!

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      she was happy miley was ther and vice versa

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      mama JLO has a lesson to teach her

    • amanda lynn

      hot. but too much.

    • 3boysful

      This is weird. Her pose from the knees down is all prim; then on top, well, she evidently forgot her top. This whiffs of a Kardashian.

    • Laurieandclaire

      Pleats. PLEATS! I can’t believe I have to look at PLEATS!

    • sagecreek

      Look at that face. That is a beautiful woman. She needs to stop pretending that she’s a teen.

    • CommentsByKatie

      NO NO NO. Loving the face and the little bodice but the pants and toe cleavage hot pink shoes are just atrocious.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      naya, my long lean latina lovey. i, too, could (and would) get behind your bra. but those pants look cheap and don’t fit your gorgeous self. loving the west side story pumps, though.

    • elemspbee

      Isis, an ex-ANTM finalist.

    • hellkell

      1992 called, it wants its shit back.

    • formerlyAnon

      There’s a pleat in those leather pants. That is . . . wrong.

    • Trisha26

      Adult video awards except she’s way too covered up.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      … bless.

    • poggi

      I saw the thumbnail and that pretty hair and makeup and maybe an edgy leather dress and then, the horror, the horror…

    • altalinda

      If she was hoping to get laid, I’m guessing mission accomplished.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      Girl is hot. Outfit is not.

    • sleepycat

      the leather looks like the cheap leather gear you find at Bob’s BDSM Basement and Bazaar. It is also pleated.

      • kmc1138

        I actually kind of like it, but cannot get behind pleats. At all. And I kind of want to know those shoes in the Biblical sense.

    • Imasewsure

      If the pants fit in some normal way, I actually would like this… she’s that pretty

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      She’s turning into a Kardashian.

    • kerryev

      I actually like the outfit–only on her, only at this particular event–but wish she had gone for a colorful lip instead of the monoblack eye, and less-sleazy, less-extensiony hair.

    • thecitysleeps

      Tacky ville central.

    • LaSylphide

      Am I missing something? How is a stripper outfit like this appropriate for an event about teenagers? (I’m assuming she’s not a teen.)

    • Beardslee

      Truly vulgar, and aging to boot.

    • DCSheehan

      Choose something else. I irrationally lurve her and I can’t cheer this on. Just horrible. Give this to a porn actress for the Deep Throatees.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Sorry, Naya, this outfit has a distinct whiff of “trying too hard.”

    • AZU403

      I don’t care for the pants, but what gets my goat are shoes that don’t cover the top of your toes. It just makes them look like they don’t fit.

    • frannyprof

      She is the love child of JLo and Kim Kardashian.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Somewhere down the red carpet, Miley is twerking with envy.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Since when did the Adult Video News Awards show have a ‘Teen’ division?
      Really? someone let you out of the house is this horror? So how was that audition for the I Dream of Jeanie remake?

    • Luke Pacheco

      aren’t those Manolos ? The shoes..

      First Rxn: Oh God…
      Second Rxn: WHY?!?!

    • quiltrx

      She looks like she should be on a corner, bending over into a car window saying “ay, Papi!!”

    • silaria

      I’m assuming she just walked off the set of her latest sci-fi action flick, hopped in her limo, and chose her accessories from the array her stylist presented. Changing the costume in the car would have been awkward.

    • demidaemon

      Between her and Miley, it’s starting to look like the Teen Leather Hooker Awards.
