It’s safe to say summer is in full swing, and we can’t stop gushing over the celebs bringing their sunny threads front and centre across red carpets and busy city streets. As July begins, we’ll be sure to bask in the warmth of more bright colours, intricate patterns and show-stopping styles that make the thought of winter feel so far away it might as well never show its icy face again!
While June was jam-packed with Hollywood events like the MTV Movie and TV Awards, Tony Awards, and BET Awards — July takes on a much calmer tone with zero award shows in tow. But who says you need a ceremony to show off your best look? Not celebs! They treat every day like their private runway, and we are cool with just sitting back to see how it all takes shape. So whether you’re searching for mid-summer style inspo or simply love the gratification of a deep celebrity scroll — we’ll be here to show you the best of the stylish best, week after week.

Keke Palmer, July 26, 2022
She’s back to claim another spot on the best-dressed list and honestly — we’re not shocked. Keke Palmer has been busy promoting her role in the acclaimed film Nope, written, directed, and co-produced by Jordan Peele. We love how easy she makes weaning a strapless dress seem — and the mirrored detail down the slit reflects her subtle flair for detail.

Fran Drescher, July 26, 2022
Fran Drescher left her highly fashionable mark across the television screens during the ‘90s as the lead role in The Nanny, and it would seem her impeccable taste has translated IRL. The actress appeared at the premiere of the new Netflix series Uncoupled in a stunning two-piece that still has our jaws dragging on the floor.
Audrina Patridge, July 24, 2022
We’re not entirely sure about that dated flower crown, but everything else Audrina Patridge was wearing while the nagging paparazzi casually photographed her is on point. The former star of the scripted reality series The Hills was snapped candidly by the cameras wearing a neon pink slip dress that she expertly dressed down in black chunky boots and a button-up tied around her waist.
Lupita Nyong’o, July 24, 2022
The San Diego Comic-Con weekend capped off the end of July, and actress Lupita Nyong’o was bright and ready for the Marvel Cinematic Universe press line. We are huge fans of this colourful piece and how the fabric drapes so delicately that it feels like it’s just begging to be taken out for a night of dancing on the town.

Rosario Dawson, July 24, 2022
Another Comic-Con attendee that was dressed to impress was actress Rosario Dawson. She arrived at the Funko: Pop Talk Live! panel in a summer dress that looks like the next vacation we want to book. The leafy pattern, bright pops of orange and ’70s-inspired white booties created the ideal outfit for a casual chat with her adoring fans.
Sabrina Carpenter July 20, 2022
It’s been a year since Olivia Rodrigo gave us the heartbreak anthem “Driver’s License,” but the drama isn’t over. The song was rumoured to be about a love triangle between Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett and Sabrina Carpenter, and now, Carpenter has released her rebuttal. Despite the heat, Carpenter looked adorably innocent while prompting her new record, emails i can’t send at SiriusXM Studios in New York City.
Joey King, July 20, 2022
Joey King is busy promoting her latest film, Bullet Train, where she shares the screen with an impressive cast including Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Brian Tyree Henry, Bad Bunny and more. The actress had an opportunity to show off her style chops when she attended the UK gala screening of the film, wearing an outfit expertly suited for the nearest fashion runway.

Gigi Hadid, July 20, 2022
Another star with impeccable fashion sense and an expert taste for the runway is Gigi Hadid. The model and mother arrived at the British Vogue X Self-Portrait Summer Party in London, England, in a fitted lime green dress that lent itself further to ‘90s fashion with a hairstyle that has earned its comeback.
Sarah Niles, July 18, 2022
There is speculation that the third season of the heartwarming television show Ted Lasso could be the last, but the cast is staying mum as they wrap up the final episodes and continue to promote its success. Actress Sarah Niles who pays Lasso’s fickle-but-sweet therapist in the series, appeared at a recent event looking stunning in a black sparkle gown with flawless ruching.
Simone Ashley, July 13, 2022
We spotted a very elegant-looking Simone Ashley at the world premiere of Netflix’s The Gray Man in Hollywood. The Bridgerton actress kept things simple with swept-back hair and timeless jewellery, but what impressed us most was her ability to prove that a good bandage dress can never go out of style — if you wear it right.

Karen Pittman, July 11, 2022
The Barbie hot pink hue we’ve seen across fashion week stages has translated to red carpets, as seen here on Karen Pittman. The actress attended the New York City premiere of Where The Crawdads Sing in a gorgeous pink slip dress, but it’s the oversized blazer we have our eyes on in this shot. The bold print and colours stood out in all the right ways, adding the perfect addition to an already stellar ensemble.
Anne Hathaway, July 8, 2022
Anne Hathaway arrived at the Valentino Haute Couture show in her chic attempt at Barbiecore, thanks to stylist Erin Walsh — and we can’t get enough of it! She wasn’t the only celeb who appeared to pay homage to the Valentino Pink PP collection during PFW. Others included Ariana DeBose and Ashley Park, but Hathaway’s look, in particular, had some extra sparkle.

Florence Pugh, July 8, 2022
Another celeb who caught the media’s attention by wearing hot pink at the Valentino show is actress Florence Pugh. Of course, that’s not the only reason Pugh made headlines during Paris Fashion Week. After debuting a stunning mesh gown that exposed her nipples, social media entered a frenzy. People responded with vulgar reactions that forced her to address the matter on Instagram: “It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body by a crowd of strangers, what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be,” she wrote. “Thankfully, I’ve come to terms with the intricacies of my body that make me, me.”

Bella Hadid, July 6, 2022
Model Bella Hadid knows her way around fashion week, and she more than delivered with this look. Her off-the-shoulder black and white polka dot suit draped her frame delicately and with class. We love how easy she makes this slightly oversized style look and can appreciate the minimalist attempt at accessories. Fashion week may promote over-the-top looks, but sometimes less really can give you more.
North West, July 6, 2022
The youngest celebrity turning heads during Paris Fashion Week was North West, the eldest child of former power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. North may have brought her best threads to the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture show, but unlike her mom, this celeb babe is fed up with the cameras following her every move. While seated at the show, North held up her invite with “Stop” handwritten on it and directed it at the cameras, which were more focused on her than the show.

Kate Beckinsale, July 4, 2022
Has there ever been an outfit Kate Beckinsale didn’t look stunning in? The answer is no — she looks great in everything she wears, including this sliver shimmery evening gown. The actress attended the National Film Awards in London, England, looking like her very own trophy, and that’s something to be proud to put on display.

Daisy Edgar-Jones, July 3, 2022
Where the Crawdads Sing star Daisy Edgar-Jones left her mark at The Championships, Wimbledon by keeping things simple and elegant. She selected a sunny Ralph Lauren slip dress while attending the Polo Ralph Lauren and British Vogue event and there is not one thing this summer minimalist look is missing.
Issa Rae, July 1, 2022
Writer, director and actress Issa Rae gave us the most while attending the Essence Festival of Culture. Her relaxed matching silk suit stunned in the perfect shade of orange — it made day pyjamas a whole vibe. Plus, we love a look that can take us from business to the beach on any given day.
Melanie C, June 30, 2022
Sporty Spice looked bright and classy in a matching shirt and blazer outfit as she attended day four of Wimbledon. The popular sporting event is regarded as the oldest tennis tournament in the world, but its prestigious reputation calls for the utmost taste in fashion. We feel confident saying Mel C served this look right out of the court.

Sofia Carson, June 29, 2022
Singer and actress Sofia Carson looked beyond stunning as she posed for photos during Taormina Film Fest. Of course, taking a risk on ruffles could bring out your inner pirate or birthday clown, but there was nothing silly about this look. Instead, Carson looked like a hand-picked flower from Grandma’s garden.
Margot Robbie, June 28, 2022
OK, so this might not be a best-dressed celeb per se, but could we really ignore the fact that Margot Robbie’s (and Ryan Gosling’s!) Barbie costume in the upcoming film had the internet jumping with joy? No — we definitely could not because this outfit has millennials weeping with nostalgia and likely digging through their childhood toy trunks for their beloved Rollerblade Barbie doll.
Megan Fox, June 28, 2022
Megan Fox, actress and noted partner of rocker Machine Gun Kelly, brought out her best fuchsia metallic fit for MGK’s Madison Square Garden after-party. She might be rocking enough shades of pink these days to rival Margot Robbie’s Barbie look, but we’re getting Y2K vibes and are definitely ready for more.

Tracee Ellis Ross, June 28, 2022

Jessica Biel, June 26, 2022
Justin Timberlake made comical headlines after performing some terrible footwork at a DC music festival, but he and his wife Jessica Biel made up for it with their outfits at the Kenzo Menswear spring/summer show. Of course, Biel easily took the lead by making cool-girl fashion look effortless in her casually chic black and white gingham pantsuit.
Janelle Monáe, June 26, 2022
This isn’t the first time Janelle Monáe has graced a best-dressed list, and we highly doubt it will be their last. The singer was in attendance for the 2022 BET Awards and had jaws dropping all over the place in this gorgeous sheer gown with tasteful leather details bordering on BDSM in a fashionably refined way.
