One of the worst fashion moments on the red carpet this year? Cardi B's bizarre vintage Mugler moment at the Grammys in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. The over-the-top, tacky look involved a sequined nude bodysuit tucked into a black skirt that bloomed as if it were a clam shell. The ridiculous poses didn't help matters, and her accessories were equally loud. See them next…
Cardi B topped her insane Mugler clamshell number with an equally insane amount of pearls. She wore a bizarre pearl beehive atop her head and stacks upon stacks of pearls on her neck, though she went with 28 carats of Gismondi diamonds on her ears.
Scarlett Johansson sparkled in this little Versace number on the "Avengers: Endgame" premiere red carpet on April 22. The metallic frock was comprised of Swarovski crystal mesh, giving it an extra glittery effect, and featured a thigh-high slit to bring a little more edge to the ensemble. Equally on-point? Those perfectly simple golden Jimmy Choo sandals. Now see this one from another angle…

The back of Scarlett Johansson's Versace design featured multiple cut-outs, resulting in a nearly open back held together with just a few vertical straps. Next up? Her subtle homage to the flick via her accessories…
Scarlett Johansson rocked some seriously cool jewelry on the "Avengers: Endgame" premiere red carpet — this Sonia Boyajian creation meant to be a nod to Thanos's Infinity Gauntlet. The unique jewelry piece featured 18k gold and tourmaline, aquamarine, amethyst and Mexican fire opal stones. Making this addition even sweeter? It was a gift from Scarlett's fiancé, Colin Jost.
Denim on denim on… leather? Kim Kardashian West's Burberry ensemble at the WSJ Innovator Awards in New York City on Nov. 6 really fell flat for us. Besides not looking like it came from the fashion house, the bizarre denim balloon sleeves paired with those hideous part denim/part leather pants was just a flat-out miss.
The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most glamorous events of the year, and Julianne Moore definitely got the memo! She arrived for the premiere of "The Dead Don't Die" on May 14 in this sleek emerald green Dior gown, an off-the-shoulder design with pretty, sheer sleeves, a ruched bodice and a fitted skirt. To amp up the glam factor, she added some eye-catching Chopard jewels…
Julianne Moore accessorized her emerald green Dior gown with this stunning necklace from Chopard's Haute Joaillerie Collection featuring a 4.01-carat oval-shaped brilliant-cut diamond plus 8.31 carats of more diamonds. Even though the necklace was beautiful, it could barely hold a candle to those show-stopping earrings that matched her dress! The Chopard jewels featured pear-shaped emeralds of 24.62 and 24.22 carats combined with over 20 carats of diamonds and another 10 carats of emeralds. Next up, another piece of jewelry you might have missed…
Did you notice Julianne Moore's stunning ring? The Chopard piece featured a 21.55-carat pear-shaped emerald surrounded by more than 7 carats of diamonds set in 18k white gold from the brand's Haute Joaillerie Collection.
The best way to sum up Halsey's look? The singer did it herself on the MTV Video Music Awards' red carpet pre-show, explaining that her ensemble was "kind of naked, kind of classy." She wore a Peter Dundas creation that paired black undergarments with a sheer red dress dotted with floral appliques, all held in place by a thick belt. Though we couldn't get behind her outfit, we did love the fun surprise she added when it came to her hair…
Check out the rainbow in Halsey's hair! The singer showed off her pride in the form of a rainbow part. And when it came to makeup, she kept things equally unique with rosy red hues on her eyes.
Duchess Kate had a gorgeous moment in Gucci in February! The royal donned this gorgeous rose-hued gown by the design house the night before Valentine's Day while attending a charity gala dinner in London.
Liam Hemsworth wasn't able to make it to the Feb. 11 premiere of "Isn't it Romantic?" in Los Angeles due to a health issue (he reportedly had kidney stones!), so his stunning wife filled in for him. Miley Cyrus arrived wearing this gorgeous red ruffled gown with sheer panels from Valentino's Pre-Fall 2019 collection. From the dress itself to how she showed up for Liam, we think every ounce of Miley's look was totally romantic.
Janelle Monae arrived at the Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles on March 23 in style! The star rocked this sweet blazer-style dress by Petar Petrov in black-and-white gingham, which she paired with a black hat, black, yellow and red Louboutin booties and cool statement earrings.
Lady Gaga brought disco glam sparkle to the Grammy Awards red carpet in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. It was the perfect occasion to rock this Celine selection, with its fanned-out frill at the bodice, thigh-high slit and shimmering silver fabric.
Emily Ratajkowski's slinky Michael Kors gown felt painfully out of place at the June 9 Tony Awards, a red carpet that's never been known for its risqué fashion. The model's thin-strapped sparkly black gown with massive cut-outs stood out — just not in a good way — amongst a sea of tulle and ballgowns.
Elle Fanning reigned supreme in the fashion department at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but of all her stellar sartorial collections, this was our top pick. For the May 15 "Les Miserables" premiere, she wore this unforgettable Valentino ballgown with billowing short sleeves, a plunging neckline and a glamorously full skirt all fashioned out of a stunning floral fabric. To get the full effect, you need a closer look…
We loved every iota of Elle Fanning's Valentino dress — from the delicate ruffle detail at the waist to that gorgeous pink, yellow and white lace floral pattern. You've got to see the extra-special detail she added to her look…
Katy Perry opted for this throwback checkered dress by Paskal that was covered in clear plastic and gave a tiny glimpse of a blue bra underneath at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on March 14. When it came time for accessories, things got even weirder. Katy added a wig, a headband, a thick black belt and thumb-less black patent leather gloves for no apparent reason.
We adored Brie Larson's sparkly Rodarte getup at the New York City screening of "Captain Marvel" on March 6. From that long-sleeved crop top to the high-waisted pants and those killer sandals, this outfit fit together perfectly.
Rachel Bloom often shocks us with her questionable fashion, and her look at the "Jane the Virgin" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" farewell seasons PaleyFest presentation in Los Angeles on March 20 delivered once again. Her Moschino minidress featured a bizarre motif that looked like a pill bottle, which she paired with black heels for an odd — albeit eye-catching — getup.
Gemma Chan looked like a dream at the Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California, on Jan. 13. The "Crazy Rich Asians" star donned this show-stopping Jason Wu number with an all-over floral print, drop sleeves and a full skirt. Next up, see her equally flawless beauty look!
Gemma Chan added a braid tied in a black bow on the Critics' Choice Awards blue carpet, a perfect and unexpected choice. She then finished off her look with rosy-hued makeup and Anita Ko dangling earrings that matched her floral Jason Wu gown to perfection. A+, Gemma!
Though we wish Naomi Scott would have worn Princess Jasmine's signature blue shade, we can't fault the star for picking this pink statement gown for the "Aladdin" premiere in Los Angeles on May 21. The Brandon Maxwell creation featured an interesting draped neckline, a cut-out at the waist and a full skirt complete with pockets. The star opted for a high bun to balance out the full dress and scored a hit in our book.
We've missed seeing Selena Gomez on red carpets! Unfortunately, the star turned up in Cannes in this disappointing Louis Vuitton minidress on May 14. The off-the-shoulder frock seemed too casual for the opening ceremony afterparty, but she improved upon the look with her metallic pumps and that pretty necklace!
Laura Harrier donned this dreamy Louis Vuitton gown at the BAFTAs in London on Feb. 10. We loved the hue, the delicate pleating at the collar and along the sleeves and the way she paired it perfectly with nude heels. She also added an unexpected accessory to the mix, which we'll see next…
Laura Harrier jazzed up her look with a sleek bedazzled barrette — a fun new way to add jewels to the mix. We loved the unexpected addition and the way it incorporated a matching orange hue.
Kristen Stewart arrived at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week on March 5 in this insanely cool jumpsuit by the fashion house. The all-over logos and quilted-look fabric (just like their iconic bags!) took this one-piece to the next level, while the Mary Jane-style shoes infused a retro vibe. Equally eye-catching? Her accessories and beauty look. See those next…
That smokey eye! Those layered necklaces! Kristen Stewart completed her killer Chanel look during Paris Fashion Week with multiple necklaces, dark purple-hued eyeshadow and a nude lip.
Everything old does not need to become new again. Case in point — Kim Kardashian West's Azzedine Alaia moment during Paris Fashion Week on March 5. Kim wore this vintage leopard-print jumpsuit with a matching coat and shoes, delivering an ensemble no one needed to relive.
An example of rocking pastels perfectly? Kacey Musgraves — who is quickly becoming one of our favorite stars to see on the red carpet — delivered a win with her ACM Awards look in Las Vegas on April 7. The talented country music beauty wore this show-stopping Christian Cowan suit in a dreamy color palette of pale pink, lilac and light blue. She opted to rock the look without a shirt, but aside from the colors, it was the detailing that won us over with this one…
Those sleeves! The subtle pleated detailing on the sleeves of Kacey Musgraves' suit added an extra something special. And her gorgeous loose waves were the perfect hairstyle to go with this feminine and fabulous look.
Another feathered pink-hued mess? Kendall Jenner's mini by Ingie Paris that she wore to the Tiffany & Co. flagship store launch in Sydney on April 4. Considering how much she made to be there (she earned a reported $500,000 just to show up), we'd have hoped for a better outfit.
We're in the midst of another Taylor Swift transformation — and this one seems to be all about pastels. The star wore this gorgeous J. Mendel number to the TIME 100 Gala in New York City on April 23 — a dress designed with a removable puffy-sleeved bolero fit for a princess. Let's take a closer look…
Taylor Swift's J. Mendel gown sure was a stunner. Up close, you can get a better look at the delicate pleating, floral detailing and velvet embellishments. She topped off this romantic, feminine ensemble with a subtle, sweet tiara and pink-hued makeup.
Toilet paper couture! We were immediately reminded of that bridal shower game where you wrap people in toilet paper to make wedding gowns when we saw Rita Ora in this hideous ensemble at Clive Davis's Pre-Grammy Gala in Los Angeles on Feb. 9. The off-the-shoulder minidress by Yanina Couture featured messy white-and-black feather-like embellishments.
Supermodel Gigi Hadid embraced the winter whites trend at the 2019 CMA Awards in a white sleeveless turtleneck dress (while serving as pal Kacey Musgraves' date!) and added pointed-toe white boots to give her look a country twang.
Hailey Baldwin Bieber's Levi's Party outfit during Coachella on April 13 was all over the place. The star donned a vintage corset with a sheer jacket over top that featured feathered detailing at the sleeves' edges. On the bottom half? A pair of baggy jeans and bright red Vans, which all just left us scratching our heads.
Angela Bassett was a vision in hot pink at the premiere of "The Apollo" in New York City on April 24. The star donned a long-sleeved dress with a ruffled and asymmetrical hemline, finishing her look off with some bronze sandals and a black clutch, providing some contrast to the ultra-feminine frock.
Kate Beckinsale's very sheer fashion moment at the Warner Bros. and InStyle 20th Annual Golden Globes party in Beverly Hills on Jan. 6 wasn't one of our favorite looks of the night, to put it mildly. There just seemed to be entirely too much sheer paneling on her stark white gown by Aadnevik — though we did like the corset-style bodice and tiered detailing on the skirt.
Millie Bobby Brown scored an A+ for this sweet white and black-trimmed minidress that she wore to a "Stranger Things" Season 3 screening in Los Angeles on Nov. 9. Her Givenchy confection featured barely-there spaghetti straps and ruffled off-the-shoulder sleeves with a black ruffled tulle border and ended in a sweet pleated hemline.
Leopard and red are always a daring risk, but Melissa McCarthy pulled it off at the WB photo line at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on April 2. We loved the high neck, the bow detail along the collar, the long sleeves and that fun pleated skirt. And those red heels just elevated the look even further.
Yikes! Cindy Bruna donned this teeny tiny emerald green minidress covered with shimmering sequins for the CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3. On its own, the dress was pretty, but pairing it with over-the-elbow matching sequined gloves turned this potential hit into a miss.
We typically adore everything Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears, but her Oscar de la Renta getup at the The Daily Front Row Fashion Awards in Los Angeles on March 17 left a lot to be desired. We couldn't get behind this look, which was comprised of an over-the-top, one-shouldered asymmetrical top filled with frills that culminated in a dramatic one-sided train over a pair of sleek black pants.
Marion Cotillard delivered one of the worst looks of the year when she arrived at a film premiere in Brussels on April 23 in this truly bizarre Lacoste ensemble. Marion's getup from the sporty label included what looked to be a turtleneck underneath a full-length dress dotted with the brand's signature crocodile logo underneath an oversized sleeveless V-neck sweater. Let's take a closer look at this mess…
If the turtleneck underneath the dress wasn't odd enough, this oversized collared and sleeveless sweater took things to an entirely new (and terrible) fashion level. Though it would have been cute on its own, the odd outerwear looked bizarre over top the dress — especially considering that it featured a deconstructed crocodile motif where the brand's logo typically resides as well as mismatched navy, green and red striping.
We loved Jessica Biel's easy, breezy summer look in Los Angeles on June 10. The star rocked a leopard high-waisted skirt with a black T-shirt and brown sandals for a casual yet super-cool getup.
Kacey Musgraves attended the launch of her "The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show" special in her best winter whites! The country music beauty donned this David Koma two-piece ensemble, which featured silver embellishments along the bottom of the crop top and skirt, and added another dash of metallics with those gorgeous silver heels.
Priyanka Chopra pulled off one of the very rare fashion hits of the Billboard Music Awards on May 1 (no, seriously, go see how many misses the stars racked up!). The actress dazzled in a stunning belted Zuhair Murad number with a plunging neckline and an asymmetrical hemline, which she paired with nude heels and layered Tiffany & Co. diamond necklaces.
How sweet is this off-the-shoulder frock on Octavia Spencer? We loved the ruffled detail at the neckline and the leaf motif throughout the full skirt. Making things even better? Those strappy Tamara Mellon heels. Octavia wore the look at the Big Screen Achievement Awards at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on April 4.
Mila Kunis showed off her ageless beauty on the red carpet at the premiere of "Wonder Park" in Los Angeles on March 10. We adored her baby pink David Koma spaghetti-strap top and black trouser jumpsuit, which was a fun change of pace.
At the Giorgio Armani Prive show during Paris Fashion Week on Jan. 22, Amber Heard pulled out a fashion hit with this sleek, perfectly tailored black pantsuit with a white blouse underneath. She finished off this polished look with an artfully messy updo and a sharp red lip.
We loved Maren Morris's mosaic-like minidress on the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet in Los Angeles on March 14. The intricate sleeveless frock by Rami Kadi featured pretty hues, a plunging neckline and a ruffled asymmetrical detail along one side for a unique look.
This one's a shocker! We typically adore Cate Blanchett's every sartorial selection, but we can't get behind this messy Gucci look she chose for the National Theatre's Up Next Gala in London on March 5. From the caramel-hued snakeskin blazer to the lime green, high-necked blouse to those green snakeskin wide-legged pants finished off with red shoes, we're left nearly speechless.
It was mounds of pink feathers for Heidi Klum at the Christian Cowan x Powerpuff Girls runway show in Los Angeles on March 8. The star donned this frilly pink confection, which looked similar to a very cozy sweatshirt, for a fun but flirty miss. We're obsessed with those hot pink sandals though!
A tea-length treat! The black Rosie Assoulin frock that Zoe Saldana wore to the "Missing Link" premiere in New York City on April 6 was stunning. From the corset-like bodice to the long sleeves and lovely pleated skirt to the way she paired it with strappy emerald green heels, there was nothing missing from this fab ensemble!
Emma Stone seriously underwhelmed in this pale yellow Louis Vuitton design that she wore to the Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 19. The color wasn't ideal and paired with that bronze-hued chunky necklace, this look landed among the misses. One interesting note in this dull ensemble? Emma changed up her hair! See her beauty look next…
It would be impossible to top her 2018 Met Gala entrance, but Katy Perry certainly tried at the 2019 Met Gala! This year, the star transformed herself into a chandelier with the help of Moschino. Her frock featured lit bulbs surrounding her hips and head, making for an incredibly over-the-top and totally campy fashion moment.
Oh, Mandy Moore. The actress wore this unfortunate silver frock to the "Below the Line Talent" FYC event in Los Angeles on June 9, and it seriously underwhelmed us. The long-sleeved dress had a high-low hemline and a bell sleeve, but something about the fit felt off on the "This Is Us" star. Pairing it with those black heels was also a misguided choice.
Yikes. Dua Lipa's bizarre electric blue Mugler design at the MTV EMAs in Seville, Spain, on Nov. 3 wasn't one of our favorites that month. The odd blazer-like frock featured cut-outs down the bodice and didn't fare well with those blue tights and silky boots.
From dragons to scorpions! Sarah Hyland opted to go sans shirt with this otherwise cool Tanya Taylor checkered jacket and skirt set. We'd love this look if she added a blouse and lost that weird silver scorpion embellishment.
Does "dripping wet" vibe camp to you? We didn't think so. Kim Kardashian West's take on this year's Met Gala theme was a custom taupe corseted look by Thierry Mugler that brought a wet vibe to the pink carpet with beading that gave the illusion that she was rising from a body of water. Though we applaud the effort, we're not quite sure we're on the same page with this one.
Zendaya never lets us down on a red carpet, and the People's Choice Awards on Nov. 11 were no exception. The stylish star opted for this divine asymmetrical Christopher Esber gown with one tiny spaghetti strap holding things in place plus embellished detailing at the waist that gave way to some interestingly placed cut-outs. Great call to pair it with simple black heels, a red lip and an updo to keep the focus on this stunning gown.
We don't normally go gaga for lime green, but Keira Knightley's Valentino gown truly wowed at a screening of "The Aftermath" in New York City on March 13. We loved the gown's delicate tulle sleeves and pleated full skirt in that unexpected hue.
Monochromatic gray is seriously underrated! Saoirse Ronan proved this during a stop at the "This Morning" show in London on Jan. 17 when she arrived rocking a dark gray Khaite sweater with gray trousers and gray boots by Casadei.
Halsey's look at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards served up '80s prom dress nightmares. The strapless indigo blue number featured a sweetheart neckline and alternated between sheer black fabric and a pleather-like blue down the bodice and full skirt, which came complete with a nearly waist-high slit for a look that would only be matched by an equally disastrous beauty choice…
Though we hated the way Halsey matched her lips to that blue-hued dress, we do have to give her props for finding a nearly identical shade. But her slicked-back hair and mismatched earrings really sealed the deal on this abysmal ballgown ensemble.
We were hoping that stars would leave the sheer skirt trend back in 2018, but here we are! Lily Collins attended The Art of Elysium's Heaven gala in Los Angeles on Jan. 5 in this floral frock, and though we loved the multicolored print, we couldn't get behind that sheer skirt.
Halle Berry rocked the red carpet at the "John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum" premiere in Los Angeles on May 15 in this unique little number. We liked the long-sleeved Teresa Helbig black leather romper, which featured detailing down the bodice, a plunging (unbuttoned!) neckline and a bow detail at the waist. She finished things off with thick-strapped black sandals for an overall killer combo.
If you're rocking a very loud and busy top, it's probably best to steer clear of statement shoes too. Raven-Symone didn't take this advice, donning this busy multicolored sweatshirt with ladies in sunglasses (perhaps that's why she's rocking hers on the green carpet?). If she'd kept everything else simple it would have been fine, but she also added those odd and equally busy black-and-white shoes, earning herself a miss at the "Kim Possible" premiere in Los Angeles on Feb. 12.
Kacey Musgraves' pale blush gown drew rave reviews at the Grammys in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. We loved the nod to the cover of her album "Golden Hour" with the sweet fan detail along the neckline (the country star's cover features her holding a pink fan), and adored the hue and silhouette of the Valentino Haute Couture gown.
Rachel Weisz looked like a dream at the 2019 Golden Globes in this black-and-white Celine confection, which started with white ruffles and ended in fitted black, the perfect complement to the full, frilly top half — an instant hit.
When tulle and bows work well together, the results are magical. Case in point: Dakota Fanning's killer Rodarte fashion show look on Feb. 5. From the feminine, tulle-covered collar to the multiple bow details down the gown, we loved every inch of this frilly, over-the-top frock.
Fresh off his Golden Globes victory, Rami Malek picked up another win for this killer red suit at the Online Film Critics Society Awards in Los Angeles on Jan. 9.
Leopard print on a formal red carpet? Anne Hathaway not only embraced animal print but sequined animal print… which is never going to end well. The star donned this disastrous Elie Saab gown at the Golden Globes on Jan. 6.
Check out this sartorial nightmare from Katy Perry! The star arrived at a press conference in Mumbai, India, on Nov. 12 in this funky getup. Those cartoonishly large sleeves and that massive and bold polka dot print weren't great on their own, but when paired with those tacky feathered heels, this look quickly earned a fashion citation.
One of the strangest ensembles at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on March 14? Singer Billie Eilish's gothic Sailor Moon-inspired getup comprised of knee-length shorts and an oversized jacket. We're pretty sure it came from the beloved mall store Hot Topic.
Rose McGowan confused us all in this khaki jumpsuit she wore for an appearance on "Good Morning Britain" in London on March 5. The jumpsuit was bad enough, but the long-sleeved, high-necked floral shirt underneath certainly didn't help matters. Adding insult to injury? Those chunky white sneakers she inexplicably paired with black socks. Yikes!
Tessa Thompson's silver frock at the "Men in Black: International" New York City premiere on June 11 was on-theme since it did appear otherworldly… just not in a good way. This custom Rodarte confection featured a dramatic sleeve detail, tons and tons of ruffles and an asymmetrical skirt, and though it was on-brand with a futuristic feel, we just couldn't get behind this loud look.
Though Julia Roberts's polka dot Michael Kors coordinates made us miss summer, we have to give the star props for this perfect look at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles on Oct. 5. From the short-sleeved peplum top to the white belt to the way she paired it with those chic white lace-up shoes, this look scored an A+ from us.
Angelina Jolie went back to her Versace roots and wowed at the "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" premiere in Rome on Oct. 7. The stunning strapless gown was embellished with micro-sequins, giving it a subtle sparkle. Angie smartly opted for classic makeup and a simple hairstyle to keep the attention on the frock.
Christina Aguilera arrived at an event in Las Vegas on Oct. 3 wearing a suit jacket in a pretty blue shade, but things went awry when it came to her bottom half. She rocked tan pants and similarly hued knee-high boots that made it look like they were all one strange piece.
Kaley Cuoco brought a dash of fall to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles on Oct. 5 in the form of this killer Missoni plaid suit. She still kept things appropriately casual by mixing in a plain white tee and black flats and adding an updo.
We're a little confused about the dress code at the premiere of "The Addams Family" in Los Angeles on Oct. 6 thanks to Charlize Theron's casual getup. The star arrived in this Dior ensemble, which included a pale blue dress shirt and a pleated patterned midi-length skirt with a rope belt, then added pointy-toe flats — a look that didn't exactly scream film premiere or red carpet.
What on earth is happening here, Halle? Halle Berry arrived at the Tyler Perry Studios Grand Opening celebration in Atlanta on Oct. 5 in this ill-fitting shiny suit and dress shirt. She topped it off with a massive black hat, but no amount of accessories could save this ensemble.
Gwyneth Paltrow topped numerous worst dressed lists on Emmy night on Sept. 22 thanks to this vintage Valentino design. Though we appreciated the fact that she opted for a dress from 1963, the bizarre strips of fabric dangling from the sleeves converted this otherwise simple black-and-white frock into a fashion disaster.
One of the best dressed celebs on the 2019 Primetime Emmys red carpet on Sept. 22? Zendaya, who arrived in this show-stopping dark green Vera Wang design. The "Euphoria" star's strapless dress started with a sleek lingerie-inspired bodice and gave way to a silk skirt with a thigh-high slit that showed off her matching green Brian Atwood heels.
Tracee Ellis Ross's dreamy hot pink confection at the Embrace your ish party in Los Angeles on Sept. 17 was a total winner. The Christopher John Rogers design featured a banded waist and exaggerated silhouette with the skirt. She paired it with heels in the exact same pink hue.
Gorgeous in green! Dakota Johnson rocked this beautiful Valentino gown with a ruffled off-the-shoulder cut and tied belt detail at a party hosted by The Hollywood Reporter during the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 7. Aside from picking one of our favorite gowns of the month, Dakota also rocked the perfect hairstyle to match. See it next…
We loved Dakota Johnson's artfully messy topknot, which contrasted well with that fabulous feminine off-the-shoulder gown. Equally gorgeous? Her plum lip shade.
Suits were everywhere during fall's New York Fashion Week! Kate Hudson jumped on the trend at the Michael Kors Collection Spring 2020 Runway Show on Sept. 11 in this chic houndstooth version, which she paired with a casual white top and chunky black heeled boots.
The silver spaghetti-strap Rodarte gown that Scarlett Johansson wore to the "Jojo Rabbit" premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 8 was a hard no. We weren't fans of the pleating, gathering and high-low hemline of the frock — or the way she paired it with super matchy-matchy silver sandals.
Though it was fitting for the occasion — the Savage x Fenty fashion show on Sept. 10 — we weren't wild about Kacey Musgraves' exotic ensemble. The green zebra-print coordinates paired with a lilac crop top (or maybe it's a sports bra?) certainly made a statement, just not a good one.
We loved the edgy Chanel garb that Kristen Stewart wore to the Deauville American Film Festival on Sept. 14. The star topped her casual white tee-and-shorts combo with a tweed Chanel jacket for an unexpected pairing that totally worked. Bringing a little more flare? Her high white socks and black boots.
Stunning! Though Mandy Moore has made some serious missteps in the fashion department this year, this look she chose for the Emmy Nominee Celebration in West Hollywood on Aug. 13 nearly made up for all of them! Her halter-style Proenza Schouler design featured interesting color paneling in shades of black, white, tan and gold and paired perfectly with her black accessories.
Megan Fox went with this unconventional all-black look at the "Battle of Jangsari" press conference in South Korea on Aug. 21. Her Olivier Theyskens getup included a strapless corset-like top with a bow detail paired with black trousers fit for a business casual wardrobe — resulting in a totally conflicting and confusing ensemble.
Christie Brinkley looked darling in this black-and-white polka-dot minidress at the "Dancing With the Stars" cast reveal in New York City on Aug. 21. We loved the Caroline Constas frock's dramatic sleeves and the way Christie paired it with silver strappy sandals.
This year's Teen Choice Awards were held at the beach on Aug. 11, and Sarah Hyland dressed like she was ready to sunbathe. The "Modern Family" actress selected this swimwear-inspired Teresa Helbig crop top and flared miniskirt with ruffled beige lace atop a neon orange base color — making it look like she opted for a bathing suit cover… which isn't the right vibe for a red carpet.
We weren't feeling Jada Pinkett Smith's two-piece look at the "Angel Has Fallen" premiere in Los Angeles on Aug. 20. Her Rosie Assoulin ensemble was comprised of a thin-strapped bralette, which we liked, and a skirt, which we didn't. The dramatic dotted creation featured a thigh-high slit and an over-the-top train that didn't make sense with such a casual top.
Penelope Cruz brought some much needed glam to August! The star donned this sweet Ralph & Russo number with tiered layers of sparkle and white feathers at the "Pain and Glory" premiere in London on Aug. 8. She completed the look with simple strappy gold heels and opted for an updo so all eyes stayed on that stellar dress selection.
Anne Hathaway took her baby bump out for a spin on the red carpet in this gorgeous custom Brandon Maxwell design. The actress, who in July announced she was pregnant with her second child, donned this hot pink number with just the right amount of cut-outs at the "Sea Wall / A Life" opening night in New York City on Aug. 8. And when it came time to pick shoes, she selected silver strappy sandals to add some shine.
Oprah Winfrey rocked this crisp white frock to the "David Makes Man" premiere in Los Angeles on Aug. 6. The mogul's midi-length dress with bell sleeves, which she paired with tan pointy-toe pumps, made for a perfect ensemble for a nighttime summer premiere.
We were underwhelmed by Pink's Nov. 13 CMA Awards ensemble. The singer sported this Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki ruffled rust-colored dress, which felt a little too casual for the big night, and strangely opted to top it with a flat-brimmed hat.
Jennifer Lopez rocked ruby red at a party during the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 7. The superstar sported this stunning sequined Elie Saab number, which featured a plunging neckline and asymmetrical hem, and paired it with matching red heels.
This one gets a big "No!" from us. Zooey Deschanel's Los Angeles "The Lion King" premiere look on July 9 featured a sheer black polka-dotted tulle overlay with black velvet detailing and a white minidress underneath, all paired with black tights and heels. The ensemble looked like it came from her "New Girl" character Jess's closet and overall felt dated in a bad way.
Stunning in silver, Jennifer Lopez looked like a dream in her Atelier Versace design at the 2019 Met Gala. The hand-beaded frock was comprised of Swarovski crystals, opals and macro-paillettes that gave it a shimmering, delicate feel that gave way to a rainbow-like effect down the skirt. Completing the look? A matching headpiece!
We loved the Grecian-style pleated Valentino gown that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the fashion house's show in Paris on July 3 and how she wisely accessorized the white frock with a touch of gold in the form of a necklace and belt.
Celine Dion gave us quite a few phenomenal fashion moments this year, including this look at the Alexandre Vauthier show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on July 2. Only Celine could pull off those dramatic, exaggerated sleeves on such a short minidress while expertly pairing the ensemble with a top bun and metallic sandals.
Apologies to the Beyhive, but we weren't crazy about Beyonce's ensemble at the Los Angeles premiere of "The Lion King" on July 9. The Alexander McQueen design featured a seriously embellished suit-jacket-style minidress that would have been fabulous on its own, but the added sheer skirt killed it for us. (Though those sparkly shoes almost made up for it!)
Jennifer Connelly's Louis Vuitton number at the "Snowpiercer" photocall was one of our favorite Comic-Con looks this year. From the bold blue hue at the top to the transition into a dark floral print with leather embellishments, this look bridged the gap between feminine and structured, and her decision to pair it with simple black heels was perfect.
Bad Bunny's Latin Grammys look on Nov. 14 left a lot to be desired. The star arrived in a massive blue velvet coat, black trousers and dress shoes with huge sunglasses — an ensemble that stood out but didn't land him on the hit list.
Vanessa Kirby donned a stunning Tom Ford number for the Los Angeles premiere of her movie "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" on July 13. With a high neck and a single long sleeve, this LBD was anything but boring. And her bold red lip and peep-toe heels took things to the next level.
We love hot pink as much as the next fashion editor, but Kristen Bell's Comic-Con look at a photocall for "The Good Place" on July 20 left us wanting a whole lot more. Her mismatched neon pink hues clashed, and the addition of even more hot pink with those strappy sandals proved there actually is such a thing as too much pink!
Why, Jameela Jamil? The "The Good Place" star wore this hideous Balmain getup to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York City on Nov. 11. She scored an instant miss with the orange-and-black eyesore of an ensemble featuring a sequined corset waist — and she added insult to injury when she paired it with those polka dot tights.
At the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 26, Bella Hadid showed off her belly button in this halter-style mididress, which surprisingly wasn't a two-piece look despite its crop top and skirt combo. Nope, strange straps down the sides inexplicably held this nude design together, though they looked more like suspenders. And the addition of those translucent heels certainly didn't help matters.
It was a pretty jewel-toned suit for Shawn Mendes at the MTV VMAs in August. The "Senorita" singer rocked this teal look but put his own spin on it by adding an unbuttoned black dress shirt with a super-casual white tank underneath that. He completed his sharp ensemble with black boots, layered necklaces and a few rings.
WWE sisters Nikki Bella and Brie Bella did as twins do and literally twinned in coordinating Luciana Balderrama ensembles at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. Nikki wore a metallic tan two-piece number with a cropped off-the-shoulder top and high-waisted trousers, while Brie opted for a lavender wrap minidress in the same glimmering fabric.
Jessica Alba stunned in a maxidress that was both glamorous enough for a red carpet and laid back enough for summer at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. The "L.A.'s Finest" star's black Oscar de la Renta halter featured a light floral print, a plunging neckline and a whimsical flowing skirt.
Lizzo tried to bring nature-chic to the 2019 BET Awards, but she just turned out looking like a tree trunk. The "Juice" rapper donned a custom woodgrain House of Holland minidress with voluminous structured shoulders and booties that blended right in as they were made from the same print. Up next, check out the details of her matching hat…
If Lizzo's woodgrain outfit made her look like a tree trunk, then her coordinating circular headpiece would definitely be the stump.
Some stars truly went above and beyond to adhere to the "Camp: Notes on Fashion" Met Gala theme in May. One of those stars? Elle Fanning! The actress slayed the theme in this Miu Miu getup plucked straight from the '70s — a coral two-piece outfit with winged sleeves and bell bottoms. There's a lot to unpack from the perfectly executed ensemble, but let's start with those necklaces.
Elle Fanning's necklace truly took this Miu Miu look to the next level The oversized accessory featured words like "camp" and "The Met" and tons of brightly colored charms. Equally over the top? Her earrings.
Lily James was ready for Christmas a few weeks early at The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2. The actress opted for this Valentino number, which featured a dramatically oversized golden bow at the top of a while column silhouette. Despite the seasonal nod, we just weren't feeling this cutesy item of couture.
Margot Robbie looked like a fairy princess in this stunning Giambattista Valli number at the "Bombshell" premiere in Los Angeles on Dec. 10. Her lilac confection featured a bubble hemmed tier followed by another level of pleated pale purple and was adorned with floral details at the waist. Her beauty look was equally flawless…
When it came time for beauty, Margot Robbie went with a berry lip, warm eyeshadow shades and loose, beachy waves to complement her stunning lilac Giambattista Valli dress.
Loofah-inspired couture? Poppy Delevingne sported this frilly minidress by Oscar de la Renta at The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2, stumping us as we wondered why, of all the fabulous gowns in the world, she chose this barely-there white one. The strapless, super-short frock featured layer after layer of wispy tulle and, despite Poppy's killer silver accessory choices, ended up on our miss list.
Rachel Brosnahan wowed in pink Christian Louboutin at the season 3 premiere of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" in New York City on Dec. 3. Her pantsuit was comprised of glittery fabric and featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and button detailing, which all paired perfectly with her equally pretty pink strappy sandals.
It's been a while since the cape trend took the red carpet by storm, and Daisy Ridley didn't make a convincing case to bring it back. The star wore this unfortunate David Koma getup — comprised of an iridescent cape over a crop top and white pants — at the "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" premiere in Tokyo on Dec. 11 and paired it with white pumps.
Laura Dern stole the spotlight at the "Little Women" premiere in New York City on Dec. 7 in this standout Ralph Lauren look — a long-sleeved, high-necked purple sparkly number.
Billie Eilish arrived at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch in Los Angeles on Dec. 7 in this bizarre getup that looked to be inspired by a bold curtain print. She paired the unfortunate coordinates with Gucci sneakers and orange-lensed sunglasses to make things even more confusing.
Cate Blanchett wowed at The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2, looking like a dream in this mint green confection by Giorgio Armani. From the ruffled sleeves to the belted waist and full skirt, this ethereal gown stood out amongst a sea of fabulous fashion.
Model Elsa Hosk's shimmery mermaid look on the red carpet at The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2 landed among the misses this year. The Celia Kritharioti design felt more costume-like than couture on the high-fashion night.
Ellie Goulding's Angel Chen ensemble fell seriously flat at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch in Los Angeles on Dec. 7. The singer sported this funky asymmetrical dress with mismatched straps — one thin and one a tad thicker — which on its own wouldn't have been that awful. But paired with equally funky pants underneath, Ellie's getup amounted to a massive fashion miss.
It was all about the embellishments on this gorgeous Ralph & Russo creation that Jennifer Lopez wore to the Gotham Awards in New York City on Dec. 2. The confection featured one sheer shoulder and plenty of feathers and appliques for an extra-glamorous vibe on the red carpet that night.
Is it a sarong tied over a minidress? Julianne Hough served up a puzzling look on Dec. 5 at the "An Evening with Derek and Julianne Hough" event in Los Angeles. The Magda Butrym design, which featured long sleeves and a bold purple floral print, would have been fine without that odd black layer tied in a bow around the waist.
Saoirse Ronan opted for a unique look at the premiere of her film "Little Women" in New York City on Dec. 7. The Gucci gown featured a bib collar embellished with stunning turquoise stones plus sheer sleeves and a thigh-high slit that showed off her knee-high boots.
Tilda Swinton's fashion is always next level, but we couldn't get behind this Loewe look the star wore to the screening "It Must Be Heaven" in Morocco on Dec. 4 — a strange baggy brown dress with a dramatically long black tie at the neckline.
Charlize Theron served up a fab look in this black minidress at the "Bombshell" Los Angeles premiere on Dec. 10. The Dior frock, which featured teeny-tiny spaghetti straps, a daringly low neckline and a fringed miniskirt, stood out on the black carpet. She wisely paired it with sky-high strappy black stilettos.
There was some strange fashion at The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2. Case in point? Winnie Harlow's Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood dress with an odd uneven hemline, plenty of poof and a plunging neckline. Overall, there were just too many things happening at once with this couture piece and we had to give it an F.
Butterflies galore! Beanie Feldstein stunned in this butterfly-covered Mary Katrantzou dress that showed off just a bit of her Savage x Fenty lime green bra at the Gotham Awards in New York City on Dec. 2.
The Attico high-low dress that Emma Roberts wore to The Fashion Awards in London on Dec. 2 just wasn't a hit. She paired the strapless design with black leather opera-length gloves trimmed in white feathers — which was a little over the top for the slinky little number.
Super-sharp! Nicole Kidman donned this subtly sparkly Saint Laurent blazer with a dress shirt and tie for the Los Angeles "Bombshell" premiere on Dec. 10. She added simple black trousers, but the real star of her look was that shoe selection. Let's take a closer look…
When it came time for shoes, Nicole Kidman infused some extra glam into her menswear moment in the form of these killer sandals. They featured sparkly chain detailing at the ankle and along the top strap, complementing her blazer's subtle shimmer perfectly.
