"Well, I chose it because I'm just really, I'm in a really fun mood, and I wanted to 'wow' people when I stepped out on the carpet," smiled Lovato. "And I don't know, the host has to wear something special, it's the Teen Choice Awards."

New pop star Carly Rae Jepsen wore a beige blazer paired with a matching miniskirt and dark green printed palm trees accompanied by a black clutch and chunky black Aldo platforms. "It just felt kind of suited for Teen Choice. The surf boards. Why not?" said Jepsen.

The youngest Kardashian sisters, Kendal and Kylie Jenner, opted for dark dresses.

"We wanted to be different," said Kendall Jenner. Added Kylie: "I picked this dress, just because I really liked it, and then to coordinate, she picked a dark one."

Miranda Cosgrove of "iCarly" wore a short silver metallic sequined dress with subtle jewelry, while Victoria Justice wore a long animal-print dress with a bejeweled black belt, sleek straight hair and beige heels.

"Vampire Diaries" fashionista Nina Dobrev wore a teal strapless J. Mendel dress, gold strappy heels and a soft Grecian braid. "The Teen Choice Awards are all about having fun and being young," she said. "Just playing around and feeling liberated, I guess."
