Social media treasure Charli D’Amelio teamed up with former NFL player Nate Burleson to serve as co-hosts of the 36th Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
At the ceremony, produced by Nickelodeon and held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the show honors the biggest of the year in television, film, music and sports, as voted by viewers around the world from Nickelodeon networks.
Ahead of the main event, the TikTok star, 18, stepped out for a round of red carpet photos in a pink and black mini dress that hugged her incredible figure.
Her feminine dress had a corset bodice and a bell-shaped bottom that fell over her hips with a section of pink trim hanging down more than a foot.
The teen completed her look with a pair of black open-toe platform shoes.

Opting for minimal accessories, D’Amelio had her dark brown locks styled long, straight and wavy to the bottom of her back with a center parting.
At one point during the red carpet, Lil Uzi Vert joined D’Amelio for a round of posing for all those photographers.
The rapper and singer (born Symere Bysil Woods), 27, showed off his unique sense of style in an extremely baggy pair of black jeans paired with a white shirt, short blue cardigan and a red white and blue tie and matching sneakers.
Many of the images showcased his array of facial tattoos, as well as his distinctive haircut in which his dark locks were styled in two spiky sections that stood several inches from his head.
And despite her smiley demeanor, D’Amelio previously joked that she had plans to get back at the people who had slimed her and her sister, Dixie, in recent years.
“I got slimed down at the KCAs in 2021, watched my sister slim down on last year’s show and now no one is safe with me as a co-host,” the Dancing With The Stars Season 31 winner teased about her co-host responsibilities of the show in a press release.
“Nate and I will make sure this year’s show is full of unexpected Slime shots, impressive dances and surprising tricks,” she added.
Burleson, 41, agreed: “Hosting NFL Slimetime is always a blast, and I can’t wait to bring that same energy and Slime with me as co-host of the iconic Kids’ Choice Awards!”
Attendees at the event included Melissa McCarthy, Pete Davidson, Halle Bailey, Awkwafina, Seth Rogen, Michelle Rodriguez and Chris Pine.

D’Amelio was a competitive dancer for over 10 years before launching her social media career in 2019, with a lip-syncing video along with her boyfriend that she posted on TikTok.
More dance videos would follow on the social media platform, eventually leading to the Norwalk, Connecticut native earning the accolade as the most followed creator on TikTok in March 2020.
