Interactive Wednesday: Pretty Little Liars (Teen Choice)

Last night’s Summer finale of Pretty Little Liars had my head spinning. There are so many characters and plots! And I missed the marathon (stupid work) so when {Spoiler!} was revealed as Alison’s secret boyfriend I was jumping up and down going Wait, which one is that?! I made even more of a scene about the fact that Aria’s nail polish in the final scenes was THE SAME AS IN THE CREDIT SEQUENCE (hot pink brightly lit due to the subdued “it’s the middle of the night” lighting). And then {Spoiler!} happened and, well, long story short, when does it start up again???

Anyway. The Liars walked the red-blue-green carpet at the Teen Choice Awards together and like the Sex and the City and Gossip Girls girls before them, they looked like a super-group (hero, villain, super-spy, or singing variety is up for debate):

I like how Lucy and Shay have their smiles (!) on, Troian looks like she’s purposefully not smiling but not not smiling (and setting herself slightly apart from the others) and Ashley is giving the camera the ‘this is so manufactured’ look. Let’s take them individually–

I love the colour of Shay (Mitchell, portrays Emily)’s dress. In theory, I love the fit. I think it ages her and while she is 23, not the 17ish she’s playing in the show — I think she looks at least 28. Maybe it’s the styling — the shoes and bag and ring and make-up all read older to me. And this being the TEEN choice awards … well, it’s not my favourite. And other than vaguely resembling that Deanna Troi dress (again!) not so heroine chic. More Joan from Mad Men. Which is kinda awesome but kinda weird. Beautiful smile, though.

Lucy (Hale, portrays Aria) is adorable. Pretty much always. Here she’s my personal favourite of the four in a dress by Paula Ka and boots by Ruthie Davis. The spikes on the back of the shoes are fashionably iffy (I think they just work because she’s going for a punky look but it is a very fine line) but a total win for heroine chic!

In the far pose I really like Ashley (Benson, portrays Hanna)’s dress. It has a funky space trip feel to it. Up close the swirly galaxies aren’t as fun and it loses some sparkle. But she is very well put together and I really like the black nail polish. Gives her that little edge.

Troian (Bellisario, portrays Spencer) has her “take the picture please” smile and pose down pat, doesn’t she? On the plus side this dress is very heroine chic, she could concievably fight crime AS IS. On the minus side, she could also compete in the World Figure Skating championships AS IS — or a dance competition — in fact, this dress makes me want to see her on the next Dancing with the Stars. Which isn’t a BAD thing. But it’s a notable thing. I’m not sure about the eye make-up either — it’s heavy on all four of them but on Troian it looks heavy.

Now, what about you? Are you worried for {Spoiler!} or {SPOILER!}? Er, I mean —
