Dixie D’Amelio brought whimsical sparkle — with a cartoon twist — to the 2023 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

D’Amelio arrived at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the occasion on Saturday night, wearing a GCDS outfit that took an on-theme approach by highlighting one of Nickelodeon’s most beloved animated characters: Spongebob. A hallmark of GCDS’ spring 2023 collection, her Giuliano Calza-designed piece featured a light purple base with a draped sleeveless neckline embellished with sparkling crystals. Glowing into a faintly sheer skirt, the glittering piece was accented with a print of Spongebob wrapped in a feather boa on a clamshell, crafted with crystals for a bedazzled effect.

Allowing her dress to make the greatest statement, D’Amelio simply completed her outfit with a pair of thin diamond huggie hoop earrings and a metallic silver chrome manicure.

When it came to shoes, D’Amelio finished her look by slipping on a pair of shiny mules by Steve Madden. Her $99.95 Stunner style featured smooth uppers crafted from metallic silver vegan leather, accentuated with pointed-toe soles for a slick base. Thin 4.75-inch stiletto heels, as well as crossed toe and thin front straps, completed the pair with a sharp finish. The style added a dash of shine to D’Amelio’s outfit, adding a sultry edge to its cutout appearance while complementing her dress’ purple tones.
