The Style Evolution of Avril Lavigne
At the 2002 MTV Music Video Awards, a 17-year-old Avril Lavigne won best new artist clad in a pair of oversized camouflage cargo pants. Avril paired the jumbo-sized pants with her then signature tank and tie combo. A wristful of spiked and studded bracelets completed her bad girl look.
Stripes and Studs
In 2006, a polished Avril attended the US Weekly Hot Hollywood Awards in a strapless striped dress. In black leather pumps, the newly platinum blond singer balanced her feminine look with a studded belt.
Avril Lavigne looked stunning at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival in a floor length striped gown. The full on glam look was a definite departure for the punky singer, who paired the striking dress with perfect blond curls, leaving the ties and studs at home.
At the 3rd Annual Hollywood Awards, Avril kept her look low-key in a pair of black slacks. She paired the casual pants with a brown parka, studded belt and shimmering pumps. Although the look itself may have been slightly confused, her gold waves and smoky eyes looked fantastic.
Avril returned to her punk roots at the Maxim Hot 100 Party in a pair of plaid pants paired with a black vest. Avril went heavy on the accessories with a black statement necklace, studded belt, striped hoops and plastic bracelets. Red and pink bow-adorned pumps were an unexpected addition to the look.
Red Carpet Rebel
Avril maintained her punk rock aesthetic at the Teen Choice Awards. In a plaid mini skirt, high top sneakers and pink streaked poof, Avril showed her commitment to the rock and roll style.
Avril struck a balance between girly and rock and roll at the 2007 Latin America MTV Awards. Dressed in a black sequined strapless dress, Avril stayed true to her roots with a pair of studded Converse sneakers. Avril's pink streaked hair and skull and crossbones necklace finished off the red carpet look.
Beauty in Bronze
Aside from the pink streak in her hair, Avril's look at the 2007 American Music Awards was a definite step in a more sophisticated direction. Avril sizzled in the ruched bronze dress that skimmed her petite figure.
