While the rest of us are getting our summer wardrobes together, it seems the warm weather vibe has stalled on the celebrity front. A few stars have tried out some looks that reflect the summer season, but they clearly have their heads in the sand, because their outfits aren’t cutting it. Who made this week’s list of style setbacks?
The Cannes Film Festival is upon us, which means international movie stars and wannabe glamazons have flocked to the South of France ready to sweat in floor-length gowns. No, the fashion parade doesn’t stop after the Met Ball! And now it comes with a French twist.
Having gotten past some of the more unappealing sights at the Met Gala, we still found other reaches of the celebrity world where stars managed to fall short of their fashion goals. So who made this week’s Worst Dressed list?
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala might be the one night a year that a fashion forward celebrity wants to wind up on the worst-dressed list. It’s the one night a year when couture walks the red carpet and failures are fawned over. Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Upton and more all surprised, dazzled and disappointed us in different ways last night–and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it!
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.
