Jennifer Lopez can and will wear and do basically whatever she wants. (It’s JLo’s world, we’re just renting a modest one-bedroom in it). Still, even if she is our landlord, we have to call her on her BS from time to time. It’s for her own good!
Like this week when she—for some reason—fused a denim tube top to an overturned pair of coveralls for a hybrid fashion creation that looks like it belongs on the set of a sci-fi romantic comedy where JLo falls in love with a cyborg. She could make that script happen, but not this outfit.
JLo’s denim disaster wasn’t the only questionable celeb look this week. Flip through our worst looks of the week below to see the rest from Julianne Hough’s chainmail to Cyndi Lauper’s primary colour extravaganza.
JLo looks like she’s getting eaten by a denim venus flytrap
Vanessa HudgensYes, she’s at Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty show in NYC—which means lingerie is totally in play—but Vanessa Hudgens still manages to look casual... too casual. Sure, it’s sexy, but in a ‘waiting for take-out’ at home kind of way. Getty Images
HalseyHalsey must have really felt like showing off her leg tattoos this week. Very cool, Halsey, very cool. Either that or she’s just taken the bathrobe from the Shangri-La and is making it work. Getty Images
Bebe RexhaWhoever got to sit next to Bebe Rexha at this event likely didn’t have chilly legs. She showed up wearing a satin blanket disguised as a one-shoulder dress, and has enough extra fabric to keep the whole table cozy. Getty Images
Jennifer LopezJennifer plays a Queenpin in the movie Hustlers, so it’s appropriate that she dress like the boss at its premiere. But if our boss wore this to work (or a red carpet), we know what we’d be talking about at lunch time. And if that’s not enough, just take a gander at what she put on after.Getty Images
Catherine Zeta-JonesAfter deliberating whether to keep it on or take it off for years, Catherine finally had some special “alterations” made to her favourite coat. Now she can have it both ways and the only thing she had to sacrifice was her style. Getty Images
Kim KardashianThe leather pants look just a bit too much like cowboy chaps, which are functional pretty much only on the farm and at a certain kind of party. Pretty certain Kim isn’t going to either one of those places. Getty Images
Rachael FinchAustralian model and TV host Rachael Finch looks so radiant here it makes us happy just looking at her. That headband, however, makes us feel other things, mostly confusion. It’s not a fascinator, but it is fascinating. Getty Images
Ashlee Simpson RossIf you were shown photos of Ashlee Simpson back in 2004 and asked what that girl would be wearing in 2019, this is what you would describe. The touch-of-punk checked suit is fine, but too predictable. Getty Images
Lil' KimLil’ Kim looks like a character from an X-Men movie, but we’re not sure if she’s on the good side or the bad. The pointy nails and black heels suggest she’s team baddie, but the ruching and turtleneck say the opposite. Hopefully she’s just an extra because that’s exactly what this outfit is. Getty Images
Cyndi LauperSure, it’s quintessential Cyndi—which is to absolutely anything but boring—but between the right angles in the earrings, the bright-and-white pattern of the suit and the cotton candy blue hair colour, the Cyndi-ness gets a little lost in the din. Getty Images
Brad PittBrad has Dad Style on lock. The driver’s cap, the loose-fitting jeans, the untucked shirt, the scuffed boots—it’s paternity leave personified. The thing is, he wasn’t just out grabbing diapers at the local grocers, but at a press conference for a premiere in Japan. Maybe take the hat off and tuck the shirt, Bradley. Getty Images
Kate HudsonThe slick hair, layered necklaces and plain white shirt are all perfect on Kate here, but the pattern swap on the sleeves of the suit coat is just a bit too tricky on the eye. Either a little more delineation between patterns, or none at all. Getty Images
Coco RochaBubble gum. More specifically, Bubble Tape (remember that stuff?). This is that. It’s impossible to unsee. It’s not just the colour, either, but the way the mini dress wraps around Coco’s figure. Nostalgic, yes, but not a great look. Getty Images
Shannon ElizabethShannon has certainly matured from her early raunchy comedy roles, but this maxi dress looks too “Arizona retiree” for her. Not yet, Shannon. The black, inverted V in the middle just makes matters worse, adding yet another segregating element to an already busy garment. Getty Images
Gabrielle UnionThe cameras don’t know what to do with the reflective nature of Gabrielle Union’s shiny silver and black long-sleeve sequin dress. Does anyone? Also, the puff sleeve is in style, but these look droopy.Getty Images
Julianne HoughJulianne’s sheer, beaded, long-sleeve dress does look a little like chain mail, but it’s actually the metallic tube top and hot pant combo underneath that has us doing a double take. Why not layer with a simple sheer slip dress?Getty Images
