Tired of May gray? Why not get a dose of color with this month's crop of celebrity fashion. Wonderwall.com is breaking down the best and worst dressed stars of the month, starting with Naomi Scott! Though we wish she 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. Keep reading to see more fashion highlights (and lowlights) from May 2019, including looks from this year's Met Gala and the Cannes Film Festival!
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.
Ashlee Simpson decided to step out during Cannes on May 17 in one of the strangest looks of the month (including the camp-themed Met Gala!) — jeans under a massively oversized black-and-white gingham dress complete with exaggerated, ruffled sleeves.
It was a white-hot Versace night for Elizabeth Hurley at the "Rocketman" premiere in London on May 20! The star donned this fitted pantsuit — sans shirt! — on the blue carpet and accessorized with silver sandals and a pink clutch.
Another pantsuit we loved this month? Jessica Chastain's fiery orange getup at the "X-Men Dark Phoenix" press conference in Mexico City on May 15. She also rocked the suit without a shirt underneath and made things cooler and more casual by rolling up the sleeves.
One more killer pantsuit of the month? This monochromatic look Eva Longoria sported during Cannes on May 16. This all-tan look was easy and breezy yet impossibly stylish from the rolled-up sleeves to the casual matching T-shirt to the strappy sandals.
Oh, Marion Cotillard, why? The star's fashion has been getting increasingly questionable, but this year's Cannes look at the "Matthias and Maxime" premiere on May 22 might take the cake. She arrived in a bizarre getup comprised of a high-necked crop top, shorts and a Balmain denim cape-coat. Making matters ever worse? The peep-toe booties. Hard pass.
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. And because her style was unparalleled this month, you've got to see the extra-special detail she added to her look…
To complement the gorgeous floral print on her Valentino gown, Elle Fanning adorned her braids with tiny yellow, pink and white flowers.
Another weird two-piece moment on the Cannes red carpet? Model Taylor Hill's Ines Di Santo ensemble. The Victoria's Secret Angel rocked this casual look underneath a dramatic cape at the premiere of "Too Old To Die Young" on May 17. The sapphire blue-and-white look featured a crop top and high-waisted miniskirt underneath a mismatched floral-print cape — complete with an insane over-the-top cathedral train. It might have been an attempt to dress up the outfit, but the cape and even those glitzy heels couldn't help out in that department.
Allison Williams looked superb in Celine at the premiere of "The Perfection" in New York City on May 21. The star donned this sweet black-and-white minidress, which featured a black high-neck detail and black around the short sleeves and at the waist for a contrasting, cool look. Those pointy-toe heels helped cement it all as a hit.
Missing something, Alyssa Milano? The star attended the Lifetime Summer Luau on May 20 in a shirt we're not sure was quite finished being made. The odd top — which was half long-sleeved and half strapless (and a little shorter) — was paired with black pants and some equally unfortunate low-heeled, strappy pointed-toe pumps. A dismal ensemble.
Camila Morrone opted for this frothy Miu Miu look at the premiere of boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio's "Once Upon a Time In… Hollywood" during the Cannes Film Festival on May 21. The strapless number featuring a banded waist and a full, subtly pleated skirt that culminated in mounds of pretty, delicate feathers resulted in an elegant red carpet look. Her diamonds certainly didn't hurt things either!
Baggy pants are trending and Gabrielle Union was the latest star rocking them on the streets of New York City on May 14. The only problem? She styled her oversized khaki pants with an equally oversized pink blazer and a plaid yellow shirt, resulting in a bizarre costume-like ensemble.
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.
Want an easily replicated, super-chic look for spring? Look no further than what Jessica Alba wore in New York City on May 16. The star topped her simple white T-shirt and jeans combo with a white blazer and white pumps for an impossibly easy and cool ensemble.
Yikes! Bebe Rexha donned this disastrous jumpsuit — part suit jacket up top, completely sheer lace pants with floral appliqués down below — for the 67th Annual BMI Pop Awards in Los Angeles on May 14.
Polka dots and more polka dots! Kaley Cuoco rocked this sweet spotted look in New York City on May 16, pairing a black-and-white blouse with tiny polka dots with a midi-length skirt covered in larger polka dots with black oxfords.
Aja Naomi King looked like a Cannes princess in Zac Posen at the premiere of "A Hidden Life" on May 19. We adored the coral hue of this ballgown and those gorgeous sleeves balanced out by an equally full skirt.
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!
Octavia Spencer donned this cool black Christian Siriano number for the "Ma" premiere in Los Angeles on May 16. We loved the sleek off-the-shoulder top with sheer sleeves and that pretty netted detail paired with skinny black pants, and the way she added those strappy sandals to the mix.
Maybe there was a business-casual dress code memo we missed? Drew Barrymore donned this strange combo for an event in New York City on May 15. The top was cute (a cheery plaid shirt) but the bottom was all businessman (baggy trousers and a bulky brown belt). Next!
We loved Ariel Winter's look at the Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine Upfront party in New York City on May 13. The "Modern Family" star rocked a little black dress that was anything but dull thanks to some silver-dot detailing. She completed her edgy look with a pair of silver sandals and newly dyed red locks.
Allison Williams arrived at the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" studios in Hollywood on May 15 in this puzzling Gabriela Hearst getup. The white jumpsuit itself would have been fine if not for that bizarre tassel-turned-train addition that draped down the bust.
Red, white and blue! Ahead of Memorial Day weekend, Nikki Bella showed off some American spirit in Los Angeles on May 20. The star donned a white tank top tucked into high-waisted wide-legged cherry red pants and topped things off with a denim shirt. Sealing the deal on this summer-ready look? Those nude sandals (and that water bottle — gotta stay hydrated!).
Elizabeth Hurley served up a fabulous fuchsia moment at the BCRF Hot Pink Party in New York City on May 15. We loved her one-shouldered frock, which she accessorized with a gold belt and strappy gold sandals.
Hannah Brown embraced the sweet combo of pink and white on the streets of New York City on May 16. The star of "The Bachelorette" donned this tiered white minidress with a pair of bubblegum pink sandals — a very summer-ready look.
That's a whole lotta print, Katy Perry! The music superstar hit the streets of London on May 1 in this yellow-and-orange all-over floral-print romper complete with a collar and black buttons. And if that wasn't enough flower print for you, this look seems to also include a matching jacket. Though we weren't crazy about this busy ensemble, we do have to say we loved the addition of those cute white heeled mules and coral bag.
With all the great style on the May 6 Met Gala pink carpet that adhered to the "Camp: Notes on Fashion" theme, it was hard to pick favorites. But one look that was undeniable fun and playful? Kacey Musgraves's ensemble! The country music star transformed into a perfect icon for the night — Barbie — complete with a bright pink leather bomber jacket-turned-dress by Moschino. She traded her signature dark locks for Barbie blonde and even brought her A-game when it came to accessories — matching sunglasses and a hair dryer-shaped purse.
This insane look certainly adhered to the Met Gala theme! Cara Delevingne donned a bold Dior design — a rainbow dress with matching tights — that would bomb on any other red carpet, but at the Met, it fit right in with the other odd ensembles. Now about that headpiece…
Eyeballs and teeth and fingers and… bananas? Cara Delevingne truly answered the call for camp with this bizarre headpiece complete with figures of all sorts of random body parts and food. The orange line around her face complemented the rainbow stripes of her dress while her rainbow necklace also added another round of color that could only belong on this particular red carpet.
While some took the theme to perfect extremes, others' attempts fell totally flat. The most tragic case? Harry Styles in his Gucci getup. The former boybander is known for his over-the-top fashion, which typically includes eye-catching suits and plenty of fun, feminine flare, but he opted for this seriously underwhelming Gucci jumpsuit at the 2019 Met Gala. The black look served up some unexpected ruffles, a pussycat bow and sheer fabric, but overall, this might have been the biggest disappointment of the night. Not even that pearl earring could salvage things!
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.
What exactly is happening here, Ciara? The music star wore this Stephane Rolland disaster at VH1's "Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Mom" event in Los Angeles on May 2. From the looks of things, it's a romper gone wrong — a white ruffled top half that gave way to a ridiculous part-skirt, part-train and a shiny bronze bottom half. But despite the ensemble being a loss, we did like those studded heels.
While many stars swayed too far in one direction at the Met Gala on May 6, model Bella Hadid — who paired her look with a vampy short hairstyle — excelled at the "Camp: Notes on Fashion" theme in this black Moschino gown. The frock was the epitome of extra, from the racy cut-out at the hip to the bedazzled, multicolored embellishment. The addition of over-the-elbow gloves kept the jewels coming.
We haven't seen Debra Messing on a miss list in a while, but she made her triumphant return at the Gloria Awards in New York City on May 8! The TV star donned this hideous Zara jumpsuit comprised of a floral-slash-leaf motif that we wish she would have left on the rack at the mall.
Taking a page out of her character's fashion book, Naomi Scott donned this killer blue suit at the "Aladdin" photocall in London on May 10. Her Paul & Joe suit featured an oversized jacket and wide-legged pants in a bold blue hue, which paired perfectly with a paler blue silky dress shirt underneath. Taking this look to the next level? Her unexpected shoe choice… see it next!
Check out those sparklers! We loved Naomi Scott's silver sky-high heels, and the way they brought a little bit of princess-like shimmer to her menswear moment.
The structure! The hues! We're obsessed with Lily Collins' look at the "Tolkien" premiere in Los Angeles on May 8. Her Roland Van Der Kemp halter gown featured a pale gray bodice with structured detailing along the neckline and a gold belt uniting it with a gorgeous jewel-toned patchwork skirt. We loved the eclectic mix of shades, and the way she paired this elegant look with a gorgeous high bun.
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.
Saoirse Ronan's Met Gala gown on May 6 was flanked by dragons! Not only did it answer the call for "Camp: Notes on Fashion," but it also stood apart as one of the most dazzling looks on the pink carpet. It featured golden creatures atop both of her shoulders, which complemented the gorgeous classic Gucci red and green shades down the dress, serving up a look that would make Khaleesi green with envy.
One of the most radical Met Gala misses on May 6? Lili Reinhart's bright blue romper. The off-the-shoulder design featured massive sleeves and an excessive train. And she topped things off with a ridiculously oversized flower in her hair that yes, was definitely camp, but not as artfully done as others.
Somehow Emma Bunton masterfully updated her Baby Spice wardrobe for 2019 with this look on the "Lorraine" show in London on May 1. From the pink hair to that baby blue turtleneck paired with a cute rainbow plaid skirt by Marques Almeida to the knee-high white Mango boots, we're loving this spicey ensemble.
We no longer can say Kris Jenner never taught us anything! Nope, we learned an important lesson from the momager this month — there is such a thing as too much leopard print. The reality star rocked an excessive amount of the animal pattern in the form of vintage Azzedine Alaia (to which she added matching leopard-print shoes!) at a perfume launch party in New York City on May 4. Yikes.
Red-hot! We loved the Adeam number that Mindy Kaling wore to the Hulu Upfront presentation in New York City on May 1. The long-sleeved fiery red frock featured a black belt and sweet lace detail along the trim, even bordering that thigh-high slit. She paired it perfectly with simple black Christian Louboutins for a killer combo.
Our next miss? This Dior look on Bella Hadid that was certainly a strange pick. The model wore a long-sleeved top with a sheer bottom layer tucked into a pair of baggy pants with almost a tie-dye motif in a denim hue. She paired the odd getup with simple black pointy-toe heels and a half-up, half-down hairstyle.
Olivia Wilde looked like a princess in this gorgeous coral Giambattista Valli frock. We loved the lace-trimmed bodice and the way it ended in delicate ruffles at the hemline. Her metallic heels were the perfect addition, finishing off this feminine look perfectly.
Sometimes you wear the dress, and sometimes the dress wears you. The latter happened to Jennifer Connelly, who chose this pink, blue, black and gray Louis Vuitton number for the designer's show in New York City on May 8. From the ruffles to the oversized sleeves to the way it paired with stark black tights, this outfit felt more costume than couture.
Rebel Wilson had a gorgeous moment in black Christopher Kane at the premiere of her film "The Hustle" in Los Angeles on May 8. The star donned this gorgeous short-sleeved frock with an interesting cut-out and a jeweled neckline — one of her best style moments of all time.
We feel like we've seen a monochromatic pantsuit on Bebe Rexha a thousand times before, so this look at the Music Biz 2019 Awards in Nashville on May 7 felt anything but fresh. She topped off her white jumpsuit with a wide-brimmed hat and showed off a dash of pink in her hair, but it wasn't enough to turn this miss into a hit.
Polka dots, pink and leopard print! These three things don't seem like they'd go together well, but Peyton List pulled them all off flawlessly at the Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet Fragrance Pop-Up Event in Los Angeles on May 9.
We weren't crazy about Anne Hathaway's Elie Saab look at the premiere of her film "The Hustle" in Los Angeles on May 8. Her black jumpsuit just had a little too much happening — from the embroidery down the bodice to the bell sleeves to that unnecessary train.
We couldn't get behind Zoe Kravitz's look at the Hulu Upfront presentation in New York City on May 1. She donned a bizarre short-sleeved striped Supreme shirt left open over a white crop top with neon green pants — a truly strange getup made only more puzzling with the addition of those black kitten heels.
Kiernan Shipka has been a fashion maven since she was a young child star, but this 2019 Billboard Music Awards look on May 1 didn't do the trick. The odd Dior design featured a semi-sheer top half with horizontal black stripes and a red skirt with a black chevron stripe for a similarly sheer effect, all of which amounted to a big fashion miss.
Kat Dennings wowed in a black Christian Siriano dress, which featured thin straps, a belt detail and a sweet mermaid-style flared skirt, at the Hulu Upfront presentation in New York City on May 1. She kept things classic with pointy-toe black pumps and a nude lip to complete her look.
Lily Collins typically delivers a surefire hit or a flagrant miss, rarely anything in between. Unfortunately, her "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" premiere look in New York City on May 2 was a bust. The Saint Laurent minidress featured a shiny asymmetrical neckline dotted with red stars that was distracting enough, but when coupled with her polka-dot tights, we were truly lost.
