We’re kicking off the best and worst dressed stars of 2020 with Brie Larson! The Oscar-winning actress opted for this funky pick at the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles in February, and though we applaud her for taking risks, we can’t get behind this bizarre Rodarte number. From the one-shouldered stark white start to the asymmetrical black-and-blue tulle skirt to those embellished yet strangely sheer gloves, this is one couture look that needed to stay on the runway.
Zoe Kravitz’s adorable Saint Laurent dress was one of our favorite looks from the 2020 Golden Globes red carpet. The black-and-white confection featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and a smaller polka-dot print bodice juxtaposed against a much bigger polka-dot print skirt. It was tied together with a sweet bow at the waist for an A+ style moment.
Carrie Underwood sported this sparkly asymmetrical number by Yousef Aljasmi at the 2020 CMA Awards in November. The confection featured a high neck, one long sleeve and a diagonal hemline that showed off her equally fabulous strappy sandals.
Kendall Jenner has access to all kinds of killer fashion, so why she chose these disastrous lime green coordinates in February is a complete mystery. She sported the shiny neon Saks Potts top and trousers at a Brit Awards afterparty in London, adding insult to injury with clear heels by Amina Muaddi.
We were delightfully surprised by Renee Zellweger’s pastel moment at the 2020 BAFTA Awards. The star’s baby pink Prada number featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and the perfect balance between sweet and structured with the interesting sleeve shape and column-style gown. Our only complaint? We wish she would have branched out with her heels and not gone so matchy-matchy.
Jennifer Lopez landed on multiple worst dressed lists after the 2020 Golden Globes, including ours! The usually fabulously dressed superstar opted to wear this disastrous Valentino gown comprised of a distracting amount of fabric and colors up top and a seriously dramatic full white skirt on the bottom. Her hair and makeup choices didn’t fare much better…
We’re not quite sure what Jennifer Lopez was going for when she rocked her gorgeous hair in this bizarre overly braided updo. The only element of her look we could get behind? Those Harry Winston jewels, which featured diamonds and emeralds that complemented the green hue in that ridiculous Valentino gown.
Not many people can pull off a monochromatic pink look, but Jessica Simpson sure did in February while out in New York City! The star embraced her inner Elle Woods and rocked this stunning getup comprised of a bright pink PVC coat by Saks Potts and an equally cheery pink blouse and wide-legged pants. Completing the look? Pointy-toe pink pumps, a pink bag and — you guessed it! — pink sunglasses.
Bella Hadid reinvented the Canadian tuxedo during Paris Fashion Week in March, and we’re glad this didn’t start a trend! The model arrived at the Balenciaga show in a disastrous denim getup by the brand that included a full-length jean jacket, a denim shirt and some horribly baggy jeans. Her cropped brown tank top and funky black boots were also a big no.
At the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards in November, Rita Ora donned this funky yellow frock by Giambattista Valli that featured so much ruffled tulle, it resembled one of our favorite bath accessories — a loofah pouf! She made matters worse with a headpiece covered in sheer netting and heels with net-embellished detailing up to the ankle — a truly puzzling addition.
Lizzo looked like an angel in Atelier Versace at the 2020 Grammys. Her white gown featured a slinky silhouette embroidered with sparkling crystals — and we love how she topped it with a glam stole.
Lizzo’s fur stole included stunning crystal-covered bracelets to keep it in place. We loved that extra sparkly detail, and the way she added some more simple diamond bracelets to the mix. There’s one more blinged-out element of her look that we need to take a closer look at…
Check out those nails! To complement her heavenly white Versace ensemble, Lizzo’s nails included silver embellishments and diamonds dripping from each digit.
Florence Pugh arrived at the 2020 BAFTAs in Dries Van Noten. The star’s getup appeared to be comprised of a simple black minidress underneath a gargantuan fuchsia cape-like design comprised of frills — all from a collaboration between the designer and Christian Lacroix. From the messy ties down the center to the insanely dramatic train, we just couldn’t get behind this loud fashion decision — though we did appreciate those chunky black platform heels. Let’s see this look from another angle…
Unfortunately, we didn’t like Florence Pugh’s Dries Van Noten dress any more from another angle. Despite the disappointing dress selection, we did love the Tiffany & Co. jewels she accessorized with…
Florence Pugh added some serious sparkle at the BAFTAs with this pear-shaped diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. that totaled over 31 carats. If that weren’t enough, she also added stunning star-shaped diamond earrings and some insane rings to the mix…
Florence Pugh put even more Tiffany & Co. bling on her hands — rocking a pear-shaped diamond ring on her left and another diamond and platinum ring from the jewelry house on her right.
Demi Lovato rocked a whole lot of sequins at the People’s Choice Awards in November. The singer arrived in bold Naeem Khan separates and though we loved the unique hue, we weren’t wild about the all-over sequin embellishments.
Jennifer Garner wowed in a ruby red Dolce&Gabbana gown with spaghetti straps, ruching along the bodice and a full skirt at the 2020 SAG Awards. We loved the unique cut and the full skirt, which stood out amongst a sea of thigh-high slits and slinkier silhouettes.
Kate Beckinsale found herself on the worst dressed list in January when she wore this getup to the Producers Guild Awards. The star arrived in a ridiculous costume-like Zuhair Murad design — a skintight flared jumpsuit — scoring herself an instant miss.
We loved Mindy Kaling in this bold marigold hue at the 2020 Oscars! The star opted for a vibrant Dolce&Gabbana column gown with one shoulder and asymmetrical pleating. Equally eye-catching? Her jewels, which we’ll check out next…
When it came time to add jewels to her gorgeous Dolce&Gabbana gown, Mindy Kaling opted for Chopard pieces. She rocked a necklace from the jeweler that featured 78.46 carats of marquise-cut diamonds and an additional 46.33 carats of round diamonds, plus a pair of earrings with 4.23 carats of pear-shaped diamonds from their Haute Joaillerie Collection. Completing her fleet of diamonds? An equally eye-catching ring…
From the wrinkles to the ill fit to the shapeless silhouette, Heidi Klum‘s aqua Stephane Rolland frock left a lot to be desired. Heidi wore this unfortunate ensemble to the amfAR Gala in February.
Harry Styles looked dapper at the Brit Awards in February when he arrived in this chocolate brown Gucci suit. He rocked it with a pale blue dress shirt with an oversized white collar, a lilac wool sweater and a string of pearls. But it was another accessory that made headlines…
Harry Styles also rocked a black ribbon on his brown Gucci suit at the Brit Awards in February as a touching tribute to his late ex, “Love Island” presenter Caroline Flack, who passed away that month. Next up, take a look at Harry’s eye-catching shoes…
When it came time to add shoes, Harry Styles continued his stylish choices by opting for custom-made Mary Janes by Gucci.
Kelsea Ballerini wowed at the 2020 Country Music Association Awards in November. The singer donned this show-stopping strapless number by Dolce&Gabbana featuring cascading red roses interspersed with leave motifs and ending in gorgeously massive red roses at the hemline.
Helena Bonham Carter served up her usual fashion miss at the 2020 SAG Awards, showing up in this bizarre ensemble. From the shiny navy blue frock with black sheer details to the very chunky platform sandals she chose to pair it with, this haphazard look only got worse when she added another accessory…
Sunglasses! Yep, Helena Bonham Carter opted to add these flashy sunnies to her red carpet look at the SAG Awards to make matters worse.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley made the case for camel and ivory while out and about in London in January. The model-actress sported high-waisted wide-legged trousers with an ivory tank top tucked in and topped things off with a killer coat.
Taylor Swift attended the 2020 Golden Globes in this bold Etro Couture gown comprised of a very loud floral print that we did not like. Though there was a break in the curtain-like fabric via a cut-out at the waist, with this much material and a dramatic train, there was no saving this fashion miss.
Shailene Woodley selected this denim Stella McCartney ensemble in March. The star rocked the two-hued blue look comprised of a short-sleeved blouse and embroidered wide-legged denim trousers at the designer’s show during Paris Fashion Week. We loved it and the way she paired it with those killer strappy tan sandals.
We were seriously disappointed by Scarlett Johansson‘s 2020 Oscars gown. The Academy Awards are a night to bring your fashion A-game, so her uninspiring silver pick from Oscar de la Renta scored a major miss. Next up, we’ll take a closer look…
Scarlett Johansson‘s silver Oscar de la Renta frock featured a sheer netted corset with strategically placed silver fringe and random dangling threads that gave the frock a messy feel. Last up? A look at the back…
The back of Scarlett Johansson‘s Oscar de la Renta gown didn’t fare much better. The silver frock featured more dangling threads and an overdone train.
Saoirse Ronan made a splash in this stunning sparkly number at the 2020 Golden Globes in January. The star arrived in this flawless Celine gown with gorgeously studded spaghetti straps and a thigh-high slit. But the real drama came from the back…
The other side of Saoirse Ronan’s Celine design featured a dangerously low back held in place by those gorgeous straps.
Meghan Trainor was on hand for the Christian Cowan x The Powerpuff Girls Runway Show in Los Angeles in March and arrived wearing full Powerpuff Girl-inspired garb from the designer. From the dramatic blue feathers to her blue-tinged pigtails to those chunky boots, despite being on-theme for the night, we couldn’t get behind this wild look.
“Mulan” star Liu Yifei looked like a real life princess at the film’s London premiere in March. The actress’s Elie Saab ballgown featured off-the-shoulder ruffled sleeves, a semi-sheer corset-style bodice and a full chiffon layered skirt. She paired it with an updo and a bold red lip for a classically glamorous red carpet ensemble.
Billie Eilish sported this custom black-and-green Gucci suit at the 2020 Grammys in January. Even though it stayed true to her very unique personal style, we just couldn’t get behind this funky wide-legged ensemble. But from that seriously sequined turtleneck to the fingerless gloves to the sheer face mask she sported months before the world started wearing them, we do give her props for nothing about this look being expected. Next up, a better view of some of these wild accessories…
This accessory was a few months ahead of its time: Billie Eilish sported a Gucci-logo-emblazoned face mask a few months before the coronavirus pandemic surged. She also threw on tiny shades and fingerless gloves for good measure while also rocking wild dark green Gucci nails.
Natalie Portman‘s Dior ensemble at the 2020 Academy Awards was exquisite — and it simultaneously made a serious statement. Her stunning black-and-gold gown was topped with a black cape. The most powerful element, however, could only be seen up close…
Upon closer inspection of Natalie Portman‘s Dior ensemble, you can see that her black Dior cape was subtly embroidered with the names of female directors who were overlooked for nominations at the Oscars this year.
Here’s a surprising addition to the worst dressed list — Vin Diesel! The action star arrived at the premiere of “Bloodshot” in Los Angeles in March decked out in this long coat paired with a black T-shirt and leather pants — a surprising getup that unfortunately landed him on the miss list.
On paper, sequins paired with a red-and-purple leopard print doesn’t sound like a fashion hit, but Kelsea Ballerini proved that wrong at the 2020 ACM Awards. The nominee sported this impossibly cool long-sleeved minidress embellished with sequins and an animal-print miniskirt. Completing her look? Matching (and equally cool!) red leopard-print boots!
Rachel Brosnahan seriously disappointed on the 2020 Golden Globes red carpet in this Michael Kors number. From the dull hue to the duller silhouette, this look was forgettable amidst some much bolder fashion moments of the night.
Ariana Grande served up a serious Cinderella moment at the 2020 Grammys in this frothy Giambattista Valli confection. Her pale gray gown featured layer upon layer of fluffy tulle and was accessorized perfectly with matching evening gloves. The silhouette lent itself to a very unique red carpet pose…
Aside from loving her dreamy dress, we loved the way Ariana Grande posed on the red carpet and showed off the full effect of this dramatic ballgown.
Anne-Marie sported this bizarre Florence Grellier design at the Brit Awards in London in February, and we’re not sure where to begin. The singer’s minidress featured off-the-shoulder sleeves, random blue ties and a massive bow detail at the back that gave way to a train. Completing this messy look? Opera gloves, silver strappy heels and a dramatic diamond necklace.
We love a good floral moment, and Tiffany Haddish served one up at the People’s Choice Awards in November. Her gorgeous Prabal Gurung dress featured embellished straps and even more sparkly additions at the neckline and at the top of the thigh-high slit. She smartly paired the busy frock with simple black sandals and pearl accessories.
Lucy Hale stepped out in New York City in February in this sweet long-sleeved minidress by Racil. We adored the multicolored polka dots and how it paired perfectly with the red coat slung around her shoulders. We also loved the way she brought a little more color to the mix with those pink hoop earrings and red pointy-toe pumps.
FKA twigs always rocks eccentric outfits, but this Ed Marler gown she wore to the 2020 Grammys amounted to a fashion miss. The star’s gothic pink-and-black dress felt more costume-like than couture with its dramatic ruffled neckline and sheer fabric along the sleeves and up the skirt plus all that black-and-silver embroidery over top.
Dakota Fanning had a princess moment at the 2020 Golden Globes in this lilac confection. The star’s Dior design featured sweet puffy short sleeves, braided detailing and a full pleated skirt.
Too many prints! Greta Gerwig’s 2020 Independent Spirit Awards frock by Prada had way too much happening for our taste — from blue and white stripes to floral prints in shades of pink, yellow and green to stripes of just solid black. The midi-length skirt also felt like an odd choice considering the formal top half, and it didn’t mesh well with those chunky heels.
At the 2020 SAG Awards, Lili Reinhart delivered a fashion win in this stunning Miu Miu selection. The pretty two-toned confection started out with thin black straps and a plunging neckline divinely bordered in delicate pearls and jewels before giving way to a subtly pleated full white skirt with ruffled detailing at the base.
We typically like Shawn Mendes’s red carpet fashion, but we felt he played it a little too safe at the 2020 Grammys. The cute crooner rocked a burgundy Louis Vuitton getup and though we liked the shade, we weren’t wild about the styling. He added an unbuttoned white dress shirt underneath his three-piece suit giving it an undone feel. We wish he would have pushed the envelope a little more for music’s biggest night.
Elisabeth Moss rarely scores a fashion hit on the red carpet, but her look at the 2020 SAG Awards proved different! She arrived in this sweet Monique Lhuillier gown, showing that clashing shades of red and pink can actually co-exist beautifully. Its long, draped sleeves and full pleated skirt proved romantic while the red detailing at the waist gave us some serious Valentine’s Day vibes (in a good way).
The navy velvet Stella McCartney gown Olivia Colman wore to the 2020 Oscars underwhelmed. Though we love a good velvet moment, this dress had too much happening between the cut-outs, the jewel embellishments on the shoulders and the train with a dash of white.
Absolutely acing maternity style on the red carpet at the 2020 BAFTAs? Jodie Turner-Smith, who arrived in this glorious golden Gucci gown. The star’s halter-style dress featured a subtle all-over sparkle and showed off her baby bump perfectly.
Ellie Goulding rocked this bizarre green-and-black tie-dyed getup at the “Sky Up Next” event in London in February. The all-over print spanned from the top of her turtleneck to the bottom of her wide-legged pants, amounting to an extremely over-the-top fashion miss.
Liam Payne sported this sharp ensemble at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Berlin back in February. We loved his bright red suit paired with a white tee and clunky black boots — a ridiculously cool look.
Cate Blanchett very rarely makes fashion missteps. And this Haider Ackermann polka-dot suit and blouse she wore to the FX Networks TCA Winter Press Tour Star Walk in January would have been perfection… if not for her accessories. The usually stylish star added a brown belt to the mix and finished her look with purple boots, which both seemed like strange additions to the otherwise black-and-white ensemble.
Ming Na-Wen sported this stunning strapless frock by Mark Zunino at the “Mulan” premiere in Los Angeles in March. The star’s satin confection featured a sweetheart neckline and a full ballgown skirt complete with a lengthy train.
In January, Laura Dern arrived at the BAFTA Tea Party in this costume-y Dries Van Noten getup. The bizarre combo of a printed bright orange jacket and gold baggy trousers was an instant miss, despite her attempt to tone it down with a black shirt and accessories
At the 2020 BAFTAs, Emilia Clarke wowed in a dazzling Schiaparelli design. The black frock featured sparkling navy blue embellishments that paired perfectly with her equally stunning earrings. We’ll check those out next…
When it came time to add jewelry to her beautiful black gown, Emilia Clarke embraced shades of blue and added these stunning blue-stone Asprey drop earrings. She also wore rings by the designer, which included diamonds and gems in the same pretty blue shade.
Rita Ora sported this truly bizarre ensemble in London in March. The singer rocked a funky Courreges outfit comprised of a cropped leather jacket with brown and orange paneling over what seemed to be a flesh-toned bodysuit (maybe?) and pants with slits along the thighs and splits at the hem — a truly baffling combo.
Model Sara Sampaio embraced the spring pantsuit trend in this gorgeous bright blue number by Michael Kors in March. She paired her bold three-piece suit with a matching silk shirt and stark white pointy-toe pumps for the Roundabout Theatre Company’s Annual Gala in New York City.
