They say April showers bring May flowers, and it would appear a storm was already brewing in the land of celebrity fashion flounders. The end of March 2022 will go down in history for the shocking Oscar awards ceremony, which allowed us to jump-start this month with a slew of outfits best suited for backstage.

It’s not all glitz and glam for the stars, and sometimes they toss on outfits that stand out in all the wrong ways. We’ll always take the seriousness of fashion with a grain of saltiness while protecting the pride of celebrities who never intended to commit a style crime. 

As the weeks move along during April, we can’t wait to see which celebrities will shock us with talk-worthy wardrobes and accessories that do so much more than create a stir.

Rachel McAdams, April 28, 2022 

Rachel McAdams wasn’t trying to make fetch happen when she attended CinemaCon in what looks like a throwback to the Mad Men era. Her retro-inspired shirt and skirt combo are elegant, but the pattern-on-pattern plus colour-blocking combination is hard on the eyes.

It’s sad to see the popular Netflix series Grace And Frankie come to an end, and what’s more upsetting is the Little House on the Prairie dress that actress and recurring star Lindsey Kraft wore to the final premiere of the show.

Jenny Slate, April 22, 2022

Some film festivals are more casual than others when it comes to style, as seen in Jenny Slate’s choice of fashion when she attended the San Francisco International Film Festival this month. The actress, writer and comedian was horsing around with her wardrobe and somehow landed on an outfit fit for her former teenage self.

Alexa Demie, April 20, 2022 

Actress Alexa Demie attended a Euphoria event in a long black dress that felt reminiscent of Cabaret — but didn’t hit the high note. As much as we love her nod to Liza Minnelli, we long for a Maddy-inspired ensemble to get us through until we can binge-watch another season of chaos.

Actress Rebecca Wisocky might not be as well known as most of the other celebs on our list, but how could we resist adding this look to a series of fashion fails? The dress she wore to the premiere of The Offer reminds us of a kaleidoscope design and it doesn’t belong on such a stunning garment.

Nicole Kidman, April 18, 2022

It looks like Nicole Kidman finally got her wings. The adored actress graced the premiere of The Northman in an old-timey dress with some added flare. We want to give this angel her credit, but the wings gave her a crash landing here.

We love welcoming reality stars to the front of the fashion fails stage! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais has made her debut wearing what can only be described as an animal-meets-plant print pyjama suit as she casually walked out of the NBC building in New York City.

Who has allowed this all-denim trend to continue down its chaotic path? Julia Fox? The Kardashians? Or are we still blaming Britney and Justin for being the ill-fated denim duo? In any case, Camila Cabello has now joined the ranks, and it has us feeling blue.

Moving on to a different shade of the rainbow, we see country music singer-songwriter Priscilla Block dressed in an all-green ensemble as she attends the 2022 CMT Music Awards. The neon tank and matching scrunchie offer a nice balance against the sequined blazer and pants, but we’re still wondering — what happened to her feet?

We’re pleased to welcome Emma Corrin back to the fashion fails list, who was last seen here in September 2021. The English actress who played Diana, Princess of Wales, in the fourth season of The Crown attended The Olivier Awards in a peculiar outfit. Her creativity continues to astound, but these deflated balloons might not be popping the way she’d hoped.

It’s always risky to add a fashion designer like Vera Wang to the list — but c’mon! It’s a look that can’t be dismissed. While attending music industry legend Clive Davis’s 90th birthday party, the famous designer arrived ready to dance the night away in sparkly undergarments.

Tayla Parx has co-written hits for artists like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Khalid, and Panic! at the Disco, but the outfit she wore to the 64th Annual Grammy Awards isn’t making its way up the charts. We love a fun costume, but this particular look belongs in the dinosaur age.

There was no shortage of glitz, colour and sparkle at this year’s Grammy Awards, but some folks need to be held accountable for their style choices. It seems like H.E.R. got her Grammy invitation confused with her request to host a roller rink birthday bash.

Living up to fashion legend Carrie Bradshaw must add an extra layer of pressure to Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfit selections for events. Still, even Carrie made some questionable fashion choices.
