The secret to looking young? A crop top, apparently.

Guests of the Teen Choice Awards may have noticed a small note on their invites announcing the upper stomach as the night's erogenous zone ... because really how else did everyone in attendance wind up wearing the same trend?!

From Kim Kardashian, who posed with a forced smile in Balmain between her two half sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, to Hilary Duff in a shiny black ensemble, a huge majority of guests showed off their middle ribs on the red carpet. Even Taylor Swift, a woman you'd never expect to leave her shimmering nude dress at home, chose a crop top/high waisted skirt combo in – wait for it – neon green for the affair. 

But some chose not to comply with the dress code: Hailee Steinfeld chose a pretty Elie Saab frock (OK, it did have sheer lace at the mid-section, make of that what you will), Kendall Jenner wore inverse chaps and Shailene Woodley looked amazing in a Peter Pilotto dress. Ariana Grande was also in attendance. Want to guess what she wore? You already know ... but see it in the slideshow above anyway.
