With summer well underway, some stars have turned up the heat on their red carpet or street style ensembles, while others have truly missed the mark. Let's take a look… Though we didn't love the dress she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of "The Lion King" earlier in July, Beyonce completely redeemed herself with this golden goddess gown at the film's London premiere! We loved the bold hue, asymmetrical neckline, cut-outs and hip-high slit of her Cong Tri gown. Keep reading to see which other stars fared better — and worse — in the fashion department this month…
What was Katy Perry thinking wearing this coat dress during a heatwave?! The star stepped out in New York City on July 18 in a bulky navy blue Sally LaPointe PVC coat with a pair of metallic heels — a very puzzling street-style look.
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.

Lili Reinhart looked pretty in pink Valentino during Comic-Con in San Diego on July 20. The "Riverdale" star sported a sweet long-sleeved minidress and brought an extra pop of color via those bright red heels — a stylish, stand-out pairing.
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!
Want to make a strong sartorial statement? Just pair hot pink and feathers like Lucy Boynton! The star sported this sweet hot pink Patou minidress at a screening of "The Politician" in New York City on July 16 and opted for an equally bold pair of shoes — sweet little feathered heels by Roger Vivier.
Someone who didn't pull off pink this month? Amber Heard, who wore this Cloe Cassandro spaghetti-strap gown at the Giffoni Film Festival in Salerno, Italy, on July 25. We weren't wild about the length and ruffles, or the way she finished off the look with mismatched snakeskin heels.
We adored the show-stopping Giorgio Armani number Vanessa Hudgens wore to the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" premiere in Los Angeles on July 22. The star's sleeveless slinky black dress featured sheer fabric — even over those cool pockets! — and a fitted, floor-length skirt for the ultimate glam appeal.
July was filled with stellar black dress selections, including this look on Vanessa Kirby. The "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" star donned a stunning Tom Ford number for her film's Los Angeles premiere 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 brought things to the next level.
Though the lightning bolt motif on Maisie Williams' skirt fit in amongst all the superheroes at Comic-Con, we still weren't wild about the Prada look the "Game of Thrones" star wore to the annual convention in San Diego on July 20. From the collared shirt to the mismatched print to the way she paired it with sheer socks and heels, this haphazard look is a miss.
Hailey Baldwin exemplified easy, breezy summer style in Los Angeles on July 24 in a sweet printed minidress with a pair of stark white sneakers. Her low ponytail held with a scrunchie embraced another hot trend and made this one of our favorite street-style looks of the season.
Street style that didn't stun this month? Natasha Bedingfield's bizarre New York City getup on July 22. From the bright pink-and-green striped two-piece with a partially sheer skirt to that mismatched red beret to those silver platforms, we couldn't find a redeemable element in the whole ensemble.
Mixing patterns is a delicate art, and Diane Kruger pulled it off in this bold Michael Kors balance of florals and plaid. The '70s-inspired two-piece ensemble featured a light brown floral print paired with a bold plaid top and a matching plaid trousers all held together by a light brown belt and completed with a pair of killer boots.
Naomi Watts picked this polarizing Preen frock for the New York City premiere of "Luce" on July 24. Though we liked the unexpected cut — the short sleeves and the ruffled hemline — we weren't crazy about the muted hues in that checkerboard print. Her embellished heels solidified this look as a miss.
Gigi Hadid updated the Canadian tuxedo for summer when she stepped out in New York City on July 18. She rocked a short-sleeved striped denim One Teaspoon shirt unbuttoned with a white crop top underneath paired with a lighter pair of jeans and white boots by By Far for a fresh yet funky summery look (that probably no one else on earth could pull off!).
Hunter Schafer is one of our favorite up-and-coming style stars, and she proved it in this Thom Browne getup she wore in New York City on July 23. We loved the unexpected color combo of that deep green and pale pink and the way the "Euphoria" star paired it with those funky white-and-green pointy-toe shoes.
Green and pink is the color combo of the summer! Helen Mirren arrived at the "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" premiere in London on July 23 in this colorful Eponine London gown. The three-quarter-length-sleeved green frock featured an all-over pink floral print and paired perfectly with her hot pink clutch and heels. Nicely done, Dame Helen!
That's a whole lot of ruffle and floral, Rumer Willis! The star donned this busy Jill Stuart number at the Women's Brain Health Initiative 100th Anniversary event in Los Angeles on July 17, and though we loved those phenomenal strappy sandals, we couldn't get behind this dress that looks like curtains a la "The Sound of Music."
We've missed seeing Laura Harrier on the red carpet! The stylish star donned this Louis Vuitton ensemble comprised of a funky asymmetrical black-and-gray crop top and high-waisted black trousers paired with black heels at the "Balance Not Symmetry" premiere in London on July 25.
When we first saw Karlie Kloss's pretty powder blue Carolina Herrera suit at the Good Girls Do Good: A Female Empowerment Panel in New York City event on July 23, we thought it was a hit — then we looked down and realized this look is an example of shoes ruining a good outfit. The model's black heels threw off the fresh feel and turned her look into a miss.
Another stellar green striped number we saw this month? Andie MacDowell's Etro frock at the Women's Brain Health Initiative 100th Anniversary event in Los Angeles on July 17. This long-sleeved dress with an asymmetrical hemline featured bold green-and-white stripes in different directions and a black-and-white striped border that brought even more personality to the statement look. The simple strappy black sandals were a perfect accessory choice, as was her green-trimmed bucket bag.
Another good green moment? Kate Walsh's green-and-gold printed frock at the "Sell By" screening during the Outfest LGBTQ festival in Los Angeles on July 20. From the long sleeves to the bold print to the way she paired it with those sleek black heels, we adored this whole ensemble.
Yikes. We could have done without Nikki Bella's getup at the Variety Charity Poker and Casino Night in Los Angeles on July 24. The WWE and reality TV star opted for an odd semi-sheer off-the-shoulder crop top and bright yellow trousers — an unfortunate combo.
The Dolce & Gabbana dress that Natalia Dyer wore to the Giffoni Film Festival on July 21 is what fashion dreams are made of! From the lace detailing to the bold red-and-green print to the embellished red buttons down the bodice — plus the way she paired it with equally stunning heels — this look gets an easy A+.
Actress Ashleigh Cummings' Comic-Con look on July 20 left a lot to be desired. Pairing a red gingham high-necked, long-sleeved top with wide-legged wrinkly gold pants deserved a fashion citation — and don't even get us started on those shoes!
Damian Hurley pulled off a killer look at a Pat McGrath Labs event in London on July 25 when he arrived in this Versace outfit reminiscent of mom Elizabeth's Hurley's iconic Versace safety pin dress. This more masculine take included a suit jacket and skinny black trousers accessorized with a pair of Medusa-adorned loafers.
Tallulah Willis attended the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" premiere in Los Angeles on July 22 in this unfortunate hot pink one-piece. Her Topshop jumpsuit featured oversized sleeves and wide-legged pants and an overall excess of fabric. Pairing it with those silver platforms gave this look more of a costume-like vibe, making it fall among the misses this month.
Laura Prepon picked the perfect summer red carpet look for the "Orange Is the New Black" final season premiere in New York City on July 25. She opted for a crisp tan linen suit by Ralph Lauren with a white shirt underneath and paired it with nude suede heels.
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!)
Celine Dion's fashion is one of our favorites to follow, and fortunately, she treated the streets of Paris like her own personal runway during Haute Couture Fashion Week this month. This Valentino minidress is a perfect example of her impeccable choices. From the flowing feathers to the high neck and the addition of the metallic sandals, this was one of our favorite looks of July. She sported this ensemble at the fashion house's show on July 3. It deserves a closer look…
Check out the details! The feathers swayed with Celine Dion's movements and up close, the pretty multi-colored embellishments on the Valentino design popped. She added pretty drop earrings and rocked artfully messy waves to complete this stellar sartorial selection.
Another phenomenal fashion moment brought to us by Celine Dion this month? What the star wore when she attended the Alexandre Vauthier show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on July 2. Only Celine could pull off those dramatic, exaggerated sleeves on that minidress while expertly pairing it with a top bun and metallic sandals.
Even Queen Celine makes a fashion misstep now and again. This time it came at the Schiaparelli show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on July 1 when Celine Dion stepped out in a wild all-black getup that included a halter dress, over-the-elbow leather gloves and horrendous open-toe high boots.
We know bike shorts are a big trend this summer, but Emily Ratajkowski is doing it all wrong. The model wore hers with a white bralette and an oversized tan blazer then added insult to injury with those peep-toe heels. The equally trendy tiny shades didn't help either, proving that even if you're a stunning model, sometimes embracing too many trends results in disaster.
Obsessed! Singer Michelle Williams looked like a work of art in this Atelier Zuhra design comprised of a mosaic of mirrored fragments. We loved the cool texture and cut, and the way she paired the opulent dress with simple strappy heels.
Not all Chanel ensembles are instant hits. Case in point: Margot Robbie's look at the Chanel fashion show in Paris on July 2. The star donned this buttoned-up jacket over top busy plaid pants and added pointed-toe booties to finish things off.
Elle Fanning sparkled in silver Celine at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on July 10. The star donned this gorgeous one-shouldered, floor-length frock and made the smart decision to keep accessories to a minimum, focusing the attention on the shimmer of that stunning gown.
One dress we really weren't feeling this month? The disastrous pink number Emily Blunt wore to the Stuttering Gala in New York City on July 11. From the weird neck tie that draped down to her waist to the odd sheer cut-outs and unfortunate sleeve length, this Elie Saab dress left a lot to be desired.
Not many people could pull this combo off — a sparkly short romper with polka-dot tights — but Dua Lipa owned this splashy Saint Laurent look. The singer donned the long-sleeved one-piece with a plunging neckline for Amazon's Prime Day Concert in New York City on July 10, adding a pair of pointed-toe heels with ankle straps to finish things off.
As much as we love Tiffany Haddish, we can't excuse this flashy pantsuit she wore to the premiere of "The Lion King" in Los Angeles on July 9. The crimson and blue printed two-piece ensemble by Libertine featured a super-shiny fabric that didn't match those blue heels, resulting in a look that landed on the miss list.
It's hard to make this much print work, but Olivia Palermo did her best in this set of Giambattista Valli coordinates — a top, pants and jacket all in the same pretty floral and leaf pattern. Olivia not only pulled it off but gets extra points for the unexpected shoe choice — black flats — at the brand's exhibition during Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris on July 1.
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.
We loved Gwyneth Paltrow's Grecian-style pleated Valentino gown. She wore it to the fashion house's show in Paris on July 3, wisely accessorizing the white frock with a touch of gold in the form of a necklace and belt.
Oh, the old dress and pants combo! But even Kate Bosworth can't make this hideous pairing work. The star wore a bizarre Sally LaPointe getup comprised of a high-necked, sleeveless frock with a pair of wide-legged pants underneath to the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Awards in Sydney on July 2 and earned herself a fashion citation.
We loved the mismatched florals on Kate Mara at the premiere of "Skin" in Los Angeles on July 11. The star wore this sweet high-necked, long-sleeved mini by Giambattista Valli that featured a white floral print up top and a black floral skirt. She finished things off with simple black pumps and a black clutch.
Usher truly committed to houndstooth at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on July 10, but we're not so sure that was a good choice. The all-over print was a little dizzying, and pairing it with those shoes sans socks is a no-no in our book. Sorry, Usher!
Nicole Kidman rocked this gorgeous hot pink off-the-shoulder number by Olivier Theyskens at the Taormina Film Festival in Italy on July 1. We loved the hue and the bow detail at the waist, and the way she paired it with an unexpected color choice by adding those ruby red sandals.
Everything about snowboarder Chloe Kim's ESPY Awards look in Los Angeles on July 10 felt unbalanced. From the high-low hemline to the thin straps and off-the-shoulder sleeves to those chunky heels, the proportions on this ensemble really missed the mark and resulted in a major miss.
Zendaya was a golden goddess at the Fendi fashion show in Rome on July 4. The "Euphoria" star wore this look from the fashion house — a long-sleeved minidress — with matching gold sandals for a standout moment.
Rita Ora can always be counted on to deliver a fashion miss, so this outfit she wore in London on July 10 held no surprises. She stepped out for a night on the town in a leather jacket, shiny snakeskin trousers and… shimmering chunky boots. Cementing this look as a giant no? She added a pair of sunglasses… at night.
Margot Robbie was inspired by Old Hollywood glam with this look she donned for a "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" photocall in Beverly Hills on July 11. The star wore a long-sleeved, drapey white satin Derek Lam number, adding some big curls and a red lip to complete the look.
File this one under: Don't try this at home. Though Gigi Hadid made this black suede Sandra dress work with her odd additions while out in Paris on July 3, that's probably only because she's a supermodel. Though the dress is great, the miniature sunglasses and those Valentino slides would probably look foolish on anyone else.
Kim Kardashian West pulled off this questionable Yeezy look while out in Los Angeles on July 10 — though we're still trying to piece together why she's rocking that beige coat under the summer sun. Despite that odd addition, her gray denim-like sweatpants and bandeau combo was edgy and cool for the summer, though we wouldn't have paired it with those pointed-toe boots.
