Hello 2020! Cheers to a new year and new looks (we hope)!
Whether they’re wearing something wildly glamorous, fluffy or sequined, many of our style stars are attracting attention for all the wrong reasons already this year.
Speaking of having an attention-grabbing moment, did you see Greta Gerwig’s purple velvet Grimace gown? Or how about Billy Porter’s NYE look? You can never quite predict what he’ll step out in next! Billy’s flashy sequined suit looks almost as groovy as the velvet original in Austin Powers, yet, the we think it might have been best suited to the stage at one of Elton John’s farewell tour shows, not New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
See those fashion flubs and more from JLo (gasp!), Ciara (we know!) and Renée Zellweger below in this edition of Worst Looks of the Week.
Greta Gerwig’s purple gown is all kinds of Grimace
Charlize TheronIf somebody took a photo of netting like this on a sea turtle, it would break the Internet. I guess that’s the difference between turtles and celebrities… Too bad her pencil skirt doesn’t come with an eraser.Getty Images
Post MaloneDressed head-to-toe in Barbie’s signature shade, save for the Steve Jobs-style black turtleneck, it’s safe to say that Post Malone has a thing for pink. Even though his look is well-coordinated, we think Mr. Malone should leave that amount of pink for the dolls and stick to statement pieces instead.Getty Images
Sam HuntSam Hunt obviously wasn’t fishing for compliments at the Times Square New Year's Eve 2020 Celebration. Or if he was, he was using the wrong bait. Is he holding the event’s confetti? Why else would he opt for the oversized and underwhelming fishing jacket and cargo pants?Getty Images
Greta GerwigThe purple velvet robe Greta is wearing here is enough without the hot pink beading draping from the neck. Combined, this looks like something a member of Hufflepuff would wear to prom, not for the colours, but for the spirit.Getty Images
Billy PorterKudos to Billy on his matchy-matchy suit, and for finding a way to repurpose the black skirt on his Christmas tree as a neck accessory, but this suit needs to be returned to its rightful owner, the man of mystery himself, Austin Powers. Yeah, baby! Yeah!Getty Images
MonicaMonica’s puffer jacket provided the perfect insulation at State Farm Arena. The best part: if the event runs late, it doubles as a sleeping bag. Neat!Getty Images
Alanis MorissetteAlanis, “You Oughta Know”... better. Glittery flame pants and Adidas bowling shoes are a no-no, unless your outfit is inspired by Katniss Everdeen, Girl on Fire and you plan to twirl and engulf all your glitter in flames.Getty Images
CiaraIs Ciara joining the WWE? We love that her character is embracing the wet leather, but we worry about the addition of hoops and heels to the look. They’re not the safest accessories in the midst of a takedown.Getty Images
Cynthia ErivoBritish actor and musician Cynthia Erivo certainly looked eye-catching in this blue dress layered with a shiny silver bodice and hood. It’s a little too reminiscent of some of the costumes from The Fifth Element movie, though. It’s probably mostly the hood...Getty Images
Renee ZellwegerRenée is looking sweet and (mostly) stylish in this black getup. The cropped pants look modern, but the feather embellishments across her shoulders fly past playful and land somewhere around goofy. Getty Images
Laura DernOoooh, that floor-length hot pink coat Laura Dern has draped over herself here is angelic! The equally-as-long floral print dress underneath, on the other hand, is far too matronly to be heavenly. It wouldn’t be appropriate to button the coat up, would it?Getty Images
Jennifer LopezJLo is not in the business of being one-upped, so it’s lucky that nobody else wore a long floral print dress with train to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala. If she stood still in a park, you could have quite a lovely picnic on all that extra fabric. Getty Images
Lorene ScafariaKimono sleeves are super trendy right now, so bravo, Lorene, on that front. It’s the reams of dark, drooping leather that make up the rest of the gown that are dragging this look down. Getty Images
Beverly JohnsonWell, it is a gown, but it’s also kind of a monstrosity. It’s like the designer decided to “just have fun with shapes!” This is what it would look like if a tsunami hit a pink sand beach in Bermuda. Getty Images
