It’s that special time of year when, slowly but surely, the snow begins to melt, and soggy, muddy grass starts to peek through once again. As spring officially begins to take shape, the spirit of a new season inspires celebs and everyday folks alike to refresh their wardrobes as they ditch the chunky knits for dresses, tees and the possibility of open-toe shoes once again.
Just because the seasons are changing and warmth is imminent doesn’t mean that celebrities will change their stripes. There is still plenty of fashion fails to be had — even for those who enjoy the luxury of a warm climate year-round. March also sees the end of Paris Fashion Week, which means what we witnessed on the runway could inspire celebrities to step up their wardrobe game — taking risks at every stylish turn. So, grab your favourite pair of sunnies because we’re ready to throw some shade.
Carmen Electra, March 22, 2022
There is nothing wrong with Carmen Electra’s outfit showcased at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. See-through, diamond-detailed dresses and jumpers have been popular since 2003 when Britney Spears rocked it in her “Toxic” music video. And that’s precisely why we’d like to see something else on the red carpet for a change.

Aston, March 22, 2022
Whether inspired by a pink wedding or an ’80s costume party, pretty in pink lace was the vibe Aston emulated at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards. Some may say the pop star’s outfit is a smash hit, but all that matching might be too much to bump her off this list.

Sofia Carson, March 22, 2022
There’s no arguing that Sofia Carson brought a lot of colour to the iHeartRadio Music Awards. The actress and singer walked the red carpet in a floor-length gown that appeared to be fashioned by her former kindergarten class’s arts and crafts table, and we’re going to give her an A just for trying.

Sandra Bullock, March 21, 2022
Oscar award-winning actress Sandra Bullock arrived at the premiere of her new film The Lost City looking like a confused cupcake. The stunning gown certainly caught our attention, but our appetite was lost when she added the blazer and black knee-high boots to the recipe.

Dakota Johnson, March 18, 2022
Actress Dakota Johnson attended the premiere of Cha Cha Real Smooth during the 2022 SXSW Conference, looking like the couch someone owned during the mid-70s. It sincerely makes us wonder if Johnson’s intentions were true or if it was all just a meme.
Julia Fox, March 17, 2022
Julia Fox took fashion into her own hands again, destroying several pairs of perfect jeans to create this barely-there ensemble. From the bag to the boots, top and pants, this denim on denim outfit has us demanding she gives back the glue gun that brought it all to life.

Yamaneika Saunders, March 16, 2022
Rising comedian Yamaneika Saunders stars alongside Amy Schumer in her new series Life & Beth. The outfit she selected for New York City premiere gives us more than heart eyes. Her adorably festive dress looks like the Valentine card that never made its way to our inbox, but the fuzzy pink Ugg booties helped her make her debut on our fashion fails list.

Diane Kruger, March 14, 2022
Celeb stylists are always finding new and exciting ways to repurpose individual clothing items, so we have to imagine that’s where the idea for this off-the-shoulder sequin collared shirt came from. The creative effort notwithstanding, sometimes the risk isn’t worth the fashion reward. At least, that’s how we feel about Diane Kruger’s look at the premiere of Swimming With Sharks during the 2022 SXSW Conference.
Courtney Eaton, March 13, 2022
The cast of Yellowjackets was in attendance for the 27th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, including Courtney Eaton, who plays Lottie in the series. The spooky drama may have garnered widespread popularity from viewers, but we can’t say the same about this ‘80s-inspired wedding dress Eaton pulled on for the awards show.

Hailie Sahar, March 13, 2022
Actress Hailie Sahar may have been channelling her inner Star Wars character with this look. Whether by choice or chance, Sahar arrived at the 27th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards in an outfit that makes us believe she is a powerful queen disguised as a Jedi.

Margaret Qualley, March 13, 2022
She’s the daughter of model and actress Andie MacDowell and a rising star on the big and small screen with roles in popular films like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the Netflix series Maid. But none of that clout can keep Margaret Qualley safe from a fashion slip, and that’s how her mixed pattern and texture outfit landed her here.
Christina Aguilera, March 2, 2022
Popstar Christina Aguilera was in attendance for the Billboard Women in Music ceremony in an outfit that didn’t seem to suit her. The jewellery sparkles perfectly — but the oversized pantsuit has placed us in the judges’ seat — a role she knows well from her time on The Voice. If only she had a “Genie in a Bottle” to wish this look away.

Olivia Rodrigo, March 2, 2022
The sweet and innocent side of singer Olivia Rodrigo took “1 step forward, 3 steps back” with this grunge-inspired dress she rocked at the Billboard Women in Music event. The black belts and cutesy diamonds take us all the way back to the days of shopping for the perfect accessories at Claire’s, which reminds us why some things are not meant to last forever.

Zoe Kazan, March 1, 2022
Actress Zoe Kazan appeared at the world premiere of The Batman and lost her fashion footing. We appreciate the prestige and poise this outfit represents but if this Batman film was a part of The Dark Knight Trilogy we’d be asking — “why so serious?”

Molly Sims, February 28, 2022
Fashion model and actress Molly Sims attended the New York premiere of The Adam Project wearing an oversized dress. There’s nothing specifically wrong with her choice of dress, but when the sleeves act as a flotation device, you might consider bringing it to shore.

Naomi Watts grabbed the internet’s attention when she arrived at the 28th Annual SAG Awards with her rumoured partner and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor nominee, Billy Crudup. What she may not have planned was catching the attention of this list, too.
