State Street Style: State street choice awards

The 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards took place this past Sunday, Nov. 10.

All of your favorite – and least favorite – celebs were in attendance because, well, the people chose them.

Shall we start with the bad news first?

Some celebrities, no matter how much we stan them, cannot get in contact with a good stylist.

David Spade, I love you in “Grown Ups” and on “SNL,” but black dress shoes do not go with a blue suit.

Please invest in a brown pair.

We love a good “Sister-Sister” rerun, but Tamera Mowry-Housley didn’t exactly wow us with her outfit on the red carpet. Her sleeveless white feathered cocktail dress wasn’t horrible, but the bright yellow bow around her waist gave us major Björk swan dress vibes.

Mowry-Housley’s saving grace was her hair and makeup. Her bright blue eyeliner made her gorgeous brown eyes pop, and her up-do showcased her perfectly natural curls.

“Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland will never look anything other than beautiful, but that doesn’t mean she can’t wear a bad dress.

Hyland wore an embellished coral-toned gown to the awards show. The dress had slits on each side that were topped with rhinestone palm trees.

I support striving for a look more on the fun side, but the double slit is just a turnoff for me.

What does work for me, however, is a man who diverges from a plain black suit. Some of our favorite guys such as KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, and Jacob Tremblay went for colorful looks on this year’s red carpet.

KJ Apa’s light pink Ermenegildo Zegna XXX suit was tailored perfectly and complemented his bright red hair. Apa looked oh so sophisticated with his beige suede shoes and his classic smolder as his trusty accessories.

Apa’s “Riverdale” co-star Cole Sprouse took home the award for Drama Movie Star of 2019, and he looked great accepting it!

Sprouse graced the stage in a dark-blue Bertuli suit and sky-blue matching shirt and tie. It’s obvious that the “Riverdale” cast knows a little tailoring goes a long way.

Apa and Sprouse may have a few years on actor Jacob Tremblay, but he is not far behind them in the style department.

The 13-year-old posed on the carpet in a burgundy velvet suit, proving he is not only adorable, but fashionable as well.

It’s barely a surprise that Zendaya is on the best dressed list for this event. The actress won two awards that night and wore a black asymmetrical Christopher Esber gown with black pumps. The cutout bodice was perfectly embellished with silver stones.

Zendaya finished the look with perfect brows, a flattering red lip, and a topknot I wish I could recreate before my 8:30 classes.

Regardless of how you feel about the Kardashian/Jenner clan, there’s no denying that Kourtney K brought her A-game to the People’s Choice.

The 40-year-old (yes, 40!) reality TV star walked the red carpet in a glamorous Naeem Khan black suit with silver embellished stripes. She paired the oversized suit with a simple bralette underneath, some open-toed black heels, and a sleek ponytail.

This mom of three proves that a unisex look can still be sexy and stylish.
