They say April showers bring May flowers, so it’s time for a fresh spin on celebrity style reviews for the summer ahead. This month, we’re embracing the warmth of the impending sunshine by shining some light on the best celebrity looks to hit red carpets and city streets around the globe. The beginning of May is always buzzing with excitement as the first Monday of the month kicks off fashion’s most coveted (and judged!) event — the Met Gala. As celebs face their harshest critics right off the top, they can soon breathe a sigh of relief and return to less overwhelming themes and events to show off their best threads.
We’ll be here as the fashion world turns to seek out the best outfits and serve them to you with positive takes on what makes Hollywood so damn stylish.
Cynthia Erivo, May 26, 2022
Cynthia Erivo has stunned us as usual in a flawless gown. The actress walked the carpet at The Red Sea International Film Festival and perfectly mixed shades of black and pink to create a stunning dress that demands zero accessories — and all of our attention.

Coco Rocha, May 26, 2022
Model Coco Rocha has been serving a series of breathtaking looks during this year’s Cannes Film Festival run, but this one stopped us in our tracks. The over-the-top costume gown features a gorgeous appliqué with enough protruding ruffles to make us think that Rocha could take flight in the form of an elusive butterfly at any moment.
Shakira, May 25, 2022
Singer Shakira was snapped at Hotel Martinez during the Cannes Film Festival and we couldn’t pass on adding this outfit. The black gown features a sweetheart neck and a pair of delicate mesh gloves, and it’s giving us gothic Jessica Rabbit vibes in all the right ways.
Léa Seydoux, May 24, 2022
We’re willing to bet that Diane Keaton would provide her seal of approval for this modern take on the look she once made famous in the film Annie Hall. This time around, we see actress Léa Seydoux bringing classic androgyny to life again in a summer suit while attending the photocall for her upcoming film Crimes Of The Future alongside Kristen Stewart.

Kylie Jenner, May 21, 2022

The silk gown hugged her in all the right places and brought a level of elegance that felt necessary among a sea of try-hards.

Anne Hathaway, May 19, 2022
If anyone is going to make a sequined tube top and matching skirt look like a million bucks — it might as well be Anne Hathaway. The actress brought her elegant sense of fashion to the Cannes Film Festival, and while her hair and makeup may have been subtle, the impact of her white gown and heart of the ocean-inspired necklace gave the cameras what they wanted.
Hilary Duff, May 18, 2022
Hilary Duff looked perfectly sun-swept when she was captured going about her business in New York City. Her black dress featured gold vine and floral details that feel very nostalgic — especially during a time when ‘90s fashion continues to have its moment. The delicate gold earrings, handbag and strappy sandals created the perfect addition to this look.

Doja Cat, May 15, 2022
Let’s just say it — Doja Cat has a strange sense of fashion! But, it’s strange in a way that makes you want to place her on the top of a pedestal like a fine piece of art. The singer took home three awards at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards and showed up to receive them wearing a truly out-of-this-world black dress, complete with a gold Saturn purse.

Julia Fox, May 15, 2022
We bet you didn’t expect to see Julia Fox land on our best-dressed list in her grocery shopping attire, but honestly, how could you not? Fox is quickly becoming a fashion icon in her own right thanks to her DIY approach to dressing herself, not to mention her complete disregard for what people think — regardless of how wild her outfits become.
Millie Bobby Brown, May 14, 2022
Millie Bobby Brown has grown into a stunning young woman dominating red carpets with her impeccable taste for fashion in the blink of an eye. As anticipation builds for the release of Stranger Things season 4, Millie Bobby Brown walked the red carpet premiere in Brooklyn, looking incredibly joyful in a gorgeous black and white gown fit for a superstar.

Florence Welch, May 11, 2022
A Florence Welch Fashion Protection Group should be in place (if it doesn’t exist already). This ethereal rock star can do absolutely no wrong when it comes to her seemingly endless array of flowy dresses — as proven here once again when she performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Julianne Hough, May 11, 2022
We have another lady in red to add to the list! We’re honouring Julianne Hough and her ability to make a relaxed suit look incredibly easy to wear. The colour palette pops in all the right ways, and her attention to detail with delicate makeup and accessories has us taking notes.
Brandy, May 7, 2022
Singer Brandy is looking the opposite of mellow in this stunning shade of yellow. She debuted the sunny look at the 5th Annual Best Buddies Celebration of Mothers, and honestly, if this bright and cheery floor-length dress doesn’t get you in the mood for summer garden parties — we don’t know what will!

Saniyya Sidney, May 5, 2022
Saniyya Sidney, who played young Venus Williams in King Richard, a biographical drama about the famous tennis-playing sisters, attended Variety’s 2022 Power Of Women event in a perfectly tailored summer suit. From the stunning satin print to the tiny purse and strappy sandals — we can’t decide which part we enjoy most from this look!
Amanda Seyfried, May 5, 2022
Oversized yet untailored pants are the new big trend this season, but we prefer when there’s at least a bit of consideration for walking ability. Luckily, we feel safe reporting that Amanda Seyfried enjoyed a beautiful pair of aqua blue trousers that perfectly hid her feet without forcing her to trip over her look.
Sarah Jessica Parker, May 2, 2022
It may not be everyone’s taste, but no one should mess with miss Met Gala herself — Sarah Jessica Parker. The actress and fashion lover called out the importance of following the theme during a video with Vogue, where she reviewed her past Met Gala looks. Not one to fail the assignment, SJP impressed the crowd with her take on the Gilded Glamour theme while honouring Black designer Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley.

Emma Stone, May 2, 2022
Actress Emma Stone brought us all the way back to La La Land with her take on the gilded era at the 2022 Met Gala. Looking like a precious ballerina, Stone joined the iconic Gala carpet in an unassuming white dress that had just the right amount of detail to showcase her version of the theme and the simplicity of dressing to impress at one of fashion’s most iconic events.
Rachel McAdams, May 2, 2022
She may have landed on our fashion fails list in the past, but Canadian actress Rachel McAdams brought her A-game this time around. She arrived at the premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness looking like an ethereal goddess in a delicate lime green frock with beaded detailing and a matching sheer cape that perfectly captured the sun.

Kim Kardashian, April 30, 2022
She failed to honour the theme at this year’s Met Gala — but for better or worse, Kim Kardashian brought the correct level of glitz and glamour while attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. We can only hope that if this outfit lands in a museum one day, no reality star will change themselves to wear it.
