A new year brings so much hope for the 365 days ahead, but sadly, fashion statements don’t always turn out the way celebrities planned. Hollywood stars who resolve to improve their ranking on the fashion scale might be disappointed to find out that no amount of manifestation or planning can keep them safe from scrutiny — and that’s why we’ve gathered here today.
In 2021, we were faced with what felt like endless months of tumbleweeds and crickets across red carpets, but as we neared the end of the year, events came back online, and the wardrobes prevailed. The global pandemic could continue to impact events in Tinseltown, but we can always count on more than a few street-style fumbles to get us through the hard times. With that optimism in mind, we’re ready to kick off 2022 with a fresh round of fashion hell raisers.
Nicky Hilton, January 25, 2022
We’re going to assume the outfit underneath this ridiculous jacket is as cozy as the chunk knit sweater suggests, but that can’t stop Nicky Hilton from landing here. Unique details make fashion what it is, but the yellow bungee cords are not worth the risk to secure this winter coat from impending weather.
Kristen Bell, January 25, 2022
We love everything about Kristen Bell — except this red leather ensemble. In the right setting, this power suit and puffer jacket combo could undoubtedly steal the scene, but when you’re caught simply strolling along the streets like an average human, it’s a bit offbeat, even for a charmer like Bell.
Kate Hudson, January 25, 2022
Wowie! There’s no way you could miss the adorable Kate Hudson when she arrived at The Drew Barrymore Show in the brightest shade of green available on the planet. It’s hard to slight her, but it’s even harder to miss her in what can only be described as a hazard sign in fashion form.

Rosamund Pike, January 24, 2022
Please help us, fashion gods, for we are bewildered! Rosamund Pike tried to tell us several fashion stories when she appeared at Paris Fashion Week in a frock that’s left many scratching their heads. It’s androgynous, it’s high-fashion bridal, it’s winter warmth, and quite frankly, it’s downright confusing.
Julia Fox, January 24, 2022
With all the Kimye drama that’s unfolded in recent weeks, you shouldn’t be shocked to see Julia Fox showing up here. Whether the relationship is real or simply a masterful PR stunt, Juliye is taking up space as big as their collective personalities. They brought their particular display of over-the-top style to Paris Fashion Week and we can’t look away — for all the wrong reasons.
Venus Wiliams, January 20, 2022
We understand Venus Williams’ choice to lean into a sporty look for Paris Fashion week. It’s very on-brand, and she gets major points for that, but something about this race car attire feels too buttoned up. Let’s hope she can serve us something better at the next show.

Naomi Campbell, January 20, 2022
The thought of critiquing Noami Campbell at all is terrifying, but, we like to take risks. The supermodel did her part by donning a designer look at the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter show during Paris Fashion Week, but it feels like we should build a campfire around her instead of giving her a round of applause.
Gamble Breaux, January 16, 2022
As a star of The Real Housewives Of Melbourne, it’s obvious that Gamble Breaux is not a woman to hold back — on anything. So it comes as no real surprise that this dress is as loud and obnoxious as any real housewife should be. If she wants to shout about it over a few cocktails, we’re ready!
Jennifer Lopez, January 15, 2022
It’s painful to add Jenny from the block to this growing list, but we can’t help but judge this DIY denim skirt Jennifer Lopez wore while hanging out in Los Angeles. Still, it’s nice to know that every pair of denim jeans we kicked to the curb could somehow breathe new life into a skirt worn by a beloved diva.

Joslyn Davis, January 13, 2022
YouTube star Joslyn Davis stepped out looking like a creamsicle cowgirl while attending a special screening of Universal’s Redeeming Love in Los Angeles. We love a good pantsuit combo, and a pop of colour is certainly what the world needs right now. However, the sleeve tassels aren’t redeeming any love we might have had for this outfit.
Aimee Lou Wood, January 13, 2022
Sweet Aimee Lou Wood won our hearts as Aimee Gibbs on the Netflix hit Sex Education, but unfortunately, we can’t say the same about what she wore to the Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA premiere. The iridescent material was an effort in the right direction, but in the end, she looked like a mom who tossed on whatever she could find before leaving the kids with the sitter.

Jessie J, January 13, 2022
Whoever said that clothing cutouts would be a hit has officially cursed fashion! Singer Jessie J has taken many style risks before debuting this look at Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA premiere in London. Still, something is missing here, and it’s definitely the material meant to complete this sleek look.
Maggie Gyllenhaal January 11, 2022
Maggie Gyllenhaal has met our fashion fail list before, which makes sense since she’s been super busy promoting her latest projects as a rad woman director. But even the talented fall victim to our opinions, and this garb she wore on The Tonight Show isn’t hitting the late night spotlight.
Scout Willis, January 10, 2022
There’s no need to pick on celeb street style, especially when said style is worn to do everyday things like grabbing groceries or picking up the dry cleaning. What’s curious about the attire seen on Scout Willis is her ability to choose a multitude of fashion items that have no business coming together to create one, shall we say, unique look.

Courtney Love, January 10, 2022
There’s nothing new to report when it comes to Courtney Love’s sense of fashion. The grunge rocker has been sporting a particular type of style since the ‘90s, but lately it feels like we are tiptoeing closer towards grandma grunge than the cool girl vibe we used to adore. Is it possible Love has lost her edge?

Hunter Schafer, January 5, 2021
Actress Hunter Schafer has modelled for a long list of renowned fashion houses, including Prada, Dior, Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Coach, Marc Jacobs and more. However, that same sense of style seriousness didn’t match the playful nature of the vibe at the Euphoria season two photocall.
Sydney Sweeney, January 5, 2021
Another Euphoria cast member who showed up fashionably confused about the photo call was Sydney Sweeney. Living out her best Pinterest board, the actress selected the closest possible thing she could get to a wedding dress, and all of us are now witnesses to the event.

Diana Madison, January 4, 2022
Producer, actress and talk show host Diana Madison was obviously never told that there is no good time to show up in a leather jumper — but here we are. It’s impressive that such a monotone look could garner so many critiques! The shoulder loops, baggy fit and oversized buttons are all great places to start, but the real cherry on the tanned leather cake is the belt she resurrected from the early 2000s.
Brandi Carlile, January 1, 2022
Brandi Carlile arrived at the Miley’s New Years Eve Party television special in a new version of Jerry Seinfeld’s puffy pirate shirt. We’re sure the intentions were as serious as fashion pretends to be, but there is just no forgiving what we see here. Thankfully, her incredible voice distracted us long enough to forgive her.
Miley Cyrus, January 1, 2022
Miley Cyrus continues to come in like a wrecking ball, and in a year where nothing seemed to change, we can’t go too hard on her for yet again wearing an outfit meant solely to ruffle viewers’ feathers. This disco-inspired two-piece was one of many outfit changes during her New Year’s Eve special (co-hosted by Pete Davidson), but it’s not the one worthy of celebrating.
