A quick rundown for the latest styles at the 2013 People's Choice and Teen Choice Awards.

Lea Michele

This is Pretty in Pink at its best!

Emma Watson

Emma could wear a potato sack and still look beautiful.

Jennifer Lawrence

It's granny, meets....Dynasty.
Not a good combo.

Cody Simpson

This reminds me of Chevy Chase in Vegas Vacation.
But seriously...who the heck is Cody Simpson?

Brittany Snow

Bright, fun and feminine. Love it.

One Direction-I think

One day they will look at this picture and wonder what the heck they were thinking.
Funny...I am already thinking that about this ridiculous mess.

Chloë Moretz

Appropriately dressed for the Teen Choice Awards.

Selena Gomez

Beautiful dress but interesting choice of color.

Jordin Sparks

Adorable. It must be summer time!

Demi Lovato

Nothing special about her clothes.
I love her makeup but this faux-mullet has to go!

Rebel Wilson

What did you seriously expect her to wear?

Sandra Bullock

Throwing pink shoes on is not going to help this poor dress.
Too long and too boring.

Janel Parrish

This dress looks like it's straight out of a 90's dELiA*s magazine.

Kaley Cuoco

She is just an angel. Beautiful.

Monica Potter

Monica wanted to just blend in.
Mission accomplished Monica.
Mission accomplished...

Rachel Leigh Cook

Bright color, light-flowing fabric.
It's like having a berry flavored spritzer on a hot summer day.


Simply put...a disaster.

Avan Jogia

French? Italian?
Whatever...this boy is cute...

Lea Michele

Sporting the pink again.
She could wear pink everyday and I wouldn't be bothered by it.

Robert Downey Jr.

Everything looks good-until you reach his shoes.
What is this?

Nina Dobrev

Gorgeous color. Beautiful.

Rumer Willis

Absolutely stunning.

Taylor Swift

 Yet again, Stunning.

Miley Cyrus

WE GET IT-you're not a kid anymore!
But really silly girl, you are supposed to dispose of trash.
Not wear it.
I am going to take a wild guess and say there is probably more where that came from :(

{Around the World}

 Years ago the TKE fraternity set in motion an awesome multi-party night called Around the World. Each frat house would first select a country (America being the last house). They would wear costumes, decorate their house fittingly and serve drinks from their chosen country.
Now that the boys are out of college, married and four of them are living in the same neighborhood, we couples celebrate the ATW party-neighborhood style. The TKE boys and their *fabulous* wives now serve food and beverage from their chosen countries, wear elaborate costumes and decorate their homes with intricate details.

This year we started of in the delightful country of Mexico. A sign on the door (written in Spanish-naturally) asked the guests to go around the house to the backyard. A blow-up palm tree on the porch housed an array of ice-cold Mexican beer, complete with bottle opener. They had margaritas, stick-on mustaches, tequila shots, a colorful display of Mexican food and a pinata filled with mini liquor bottles. The main attractions were the Donkey Show, complete with a blow up doll and donkey and the Mexican dancers cutout that made for some pretty funny pictures.


The ladies of Brazil guided us to the backyard where a soccer field was set up and the guys were dressed as soccer players. The fence was covered in a soccer stadium scene setter and a concession stand housed cups of beer, shots, mini Brazilian flags and colorful vuvuzelas. The food table was designed like a Brazilian steakhouse, with various meats on swords. Brazilian cocktails were served in the kitchen before we entered the carnival styled living room. The girls were dressed in elaborate carnival costumes and tables for each rival country were adorned with a hilarious display of pictures and "trinkets." We left through a dark hallway where we were forced to drink dirty water (some other sort of dark colored cocktail) before contributing our used cups to the floors of the Brazilian slums .
