Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber recently rocked the pink carpet at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, hosted at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday, July 22. The hot Hollywood couple heated up the scene at the surfboard-centric show that’s dominated by the fans. And Gomez was definitely seeing the night through rose-colored glasses–her “Boyfriend” heart-throb was with her, she took home the Choice Music Group award for her and her band, The Scene, it was her big 20th birthday and she looked utterly fabulous in a flirty, bubblegum-hued frock by DSquared2.
But this starlet isn’t the only hottie who can pull off pink with the best of them and who has a handsome guy by her side. The Bachelorette‘s blonde beauty, Emily Maynard, also had a big party of sorts last Sunday when her final pick was revealed to the world. (Her number one was cool-kid Jef Holm, for those who may have skipped over the oh-so-dramatic, nearly comical finale, perhaps tuning into the Twilight- and pop sensation-packed TCAs, instea).
While Maynard would certainly dominate a contest centered around small-screen drama, did she outshine Gomez on a sartorial level, as well?
As Celebuzz highlights, the newly engaged reality TV show star had a magenta moment back in May, when she stepped out in Los Angeles in a figure-hugging neon pink dress that was demure in cut (knee-length and neck-high) but daring in color and curve appeal.
It was remarkably similar to Selena Gomez’s fuchsia design at the TCAs, except that Bieber’s girlfriend channeled a slightly more youthful look–and showed more skin while she was at it, with her dress’ mini skirted bottom and a low-cut, semi-cleavage-baring top.
Both gals were not photographed in these pink flashes with their hottest accessories–their boys–by their side, at least not in the style showdown pics on Celebuzz. But Emily Maynard did sub in some notable accoutrements that may have taken her look over the edge: a can of Red Bull and a red rose, natch. However, Gomez had her own answer to such things. During the Teen Choice Awards, she was treated to surprise, sparkler-topped cupcakes (all the sugar rush, minus the jittery, caffeine spike) and, afterwards, she was spotted with a full b-day bouquet of, yes, pink roses.
