Here at VH1, we love everything about celebrities. We love following their careers, dishing on their scandalous love lives and we absolutely adore it when they show up on a red carpet looking like a hot mess! So, in honor of our all-time least favorite fashions, we’re counting down the worst-dressed celebs in Hollywood today.
The days are growing longer and the temperature is getting warmer, which can only mean one thing: festival season is upon us. It’s time to prepare for short shorts, flower crowns and ridiculous costumes music fans will try to justify wearing to outdoor concerts all summer long. The first weekend of Coachella gave celebrities a chance to connect with their inner EDM flower children, while the MTV Movie Awards posed the challenge of getting dressed up for a formal award ceremony, yet still looking “cool” and “hip” to the kids. Not as easy as it looks.
No one wants to be the worst-dressed celebrity on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet. But it’s not enough to look good. After all, this is the MTV Movie Awards so you’ve also got to look young, hip and cool. As a result, celebs take horrible fashion risks. Most of the time, they don’t pay off. We’re sad to say it, but Victoria Justice, Pia Mia Perez and Johnny Knoxville gambled and lost. Here it is, folks: The worst-dressed celebrities at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards!
Some of us are just now starting to consistently feel that springtime weather as we head deep into April. That means we might have to take inventories of our wardrobes before we start putting last year’s gear back into rotation. Sadly, quite a few stars neglected that chore this past week, and the results leave a lot to be desired. So who made this week’s list of worst dressed celebs?
During awards season, celebs feel like princesses. Between December and March, designers send stars endless dress options, jewelers practically throw baubles their way, and A-list stylists clamor to be the ones to pull it all together for them. It can be overwhelming, dizzying — and ultimately, for some, the pressure results in a totally ass-backwards Oscar night look (in 1999, Celine Dion took this literally, showing up in a backwards tux). And then there’s the phenomenon we like to call Big Night Fail, where even the most stylish actresses look dazzling for every other awards show, but trip up for the Oscars (we’re looking at you, Kate Hudson in 2001).
Our job creating this Worst-Dressed List is so much more difficult when every celebrity on the East Coast AND at Sundance is hiding their wild style impulses under puffy jackets. We are SO looking forward to the wackiness the Grammys will bring this Sunday. That’s not to say some our favorite risk-takers didn’t let us down — Kim Kardashian was in Paris again; need we say more? — plus there were a few golden (terrible) moments at the SAG Awards, the Producers Guild Awards and (sigh) in Erica Mena’s lobby.
Thanks to awards season, Paris Fashion Week and, well, some sort of crazy vapors in the air (did that West Virginia water get farther than they said?) we had an overabundance of choices for this week’s worst-dressed list. In this supersize edition, we have a couple of Love & Hip Hop lovelies, Kanye West in a giant fur coat, and a nice selection of over-the-top red-carpet numbers.
Much has been said about the anonymity of the Internet making it much easier for us to insult people. Not much has been said about what to do when that anonymity is removed, and you’re met face to face with the 6-foot-3 former NFL star you poked a bit of fun at the week before. That’s why I’m relieved it was VH1 News’ Kate Spencer, not me, who met Terry Crews on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards last night, along with the rest of the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Because, it turns out, Crews was fully aware that we named him one of last week’s worst-dressed stars.
How refreshing (and utterly frustrating!) that Kerry Washington hasn’t said a word about her pregnancy until she showed up at tonight’s Golden Globes and called her bump “the best date of the night.” Her Balenciaga gown was Olivia Pope-worthy. But she wasn’t the only lady bringing her special glow to the red carpet tonight.
The Golden Globes are one of the biggest red carpet fashion nights of the year. Television stars mingle with Hollywood royalty, mega stars accessorize with hot arm candy and some of the biggest beauties in the world make major fashion faux pas. Some of these celebrities might be taking home an award tonight, but that doesn’t stop them from being the worst dressed.
