The neon and fluorescent colors came out in full force to Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday. Perhaps it was the neon orange "red carpet" that invitees had to compete against as they entered the ceremony in Los Angeles but Jada Pinkett Smith wore a hot pink jumpsuit, Ludacris had his neon green shoelaces and a few celebrities like Halle Berry were covered neon green head-to-toe…but only because they were doused in goo. 

But perhaps one of the most talked about guest’s outfit belonged to First Lady Michelle Obama. The First Lady’s metallic ensemble (including skinny metallic jeans) were designed by Wes Gordon, a 25-year-old up-and-comer American designer.

The annual ceremony hosted by Nickelodeon is one of a handful awards ceremonies where young people get to cast votes. This year kids paid tribute to their favorites by casting over 220 million votes March 1-March 31 on, Twitter and Facebook.
