While a laidback event like the Teen Choice Awards rightfully attracts more simple, casual looks, we were a bit unimpressed with this year’s fashion choices of some of our favorite stars. Come on, you guys — basic black and frumpy frocks just simply aren’t going to cut it for one of the liveliest awards show of the year! Thankfully, Lea Michele (Rachel) did not disappoint, as she stepped out in a tropical-inspired number by Indian designer Naeem Khan. The leafy, beaded insets look glamorous and fresh, while the sparkly green shade pops against her tanned olive skin. And since both the hem and necklines were altered from the original version to accentuate Lea’s many enviable assets, the show-stealing frock fits her like a glove. Nude accessories and delicate gold jewelry keep the look cute, sexy, and daring without going over the top. Lea Michele nails it again!

WHAT SHE’S WEARING:
