Obsessed or Hot Mess: Vote on These Daring Looks

We've seen crush-worthy celeb style and cringe-worthy celeb style. But what happens when some outfits defy definition? (See: Rihanna's silly slashed sweats and Chrissy Teigen's built-in arm-tie dress)

We watch So You Think You Can Dance for the performances, but last week we couldn’t keep our eyes off judge Paula Abdul’s bold pearl collar. To bead, or not to bead? That is the question.

We thought that all the Furbies from the ’90s were dangling from the Jenner girls’ purses, but apparently snagged a couple for a snuggly lobe look.

We thought we knew what a “wrap dress” was until we saw Chrissy Teigen’s cozy blanket-like contraption, which is, quite literally, a wrap dress.

We were as surprised as you are to see these necklaces anywhere besides the Jersey Shore boardwalk in 1999. Thank you, Keke Palmer, for reminding us that they’re still in production (and also, how much we don’t miss our necks itching from wearing ‘em).

Elizabeth Olsen’s top looks like it either came from her Martha Marcy May Marlene rural cult-member attire or from ’60s icon Jean Shrimpton’s wardrobe. How you vote depends on in whose closet you can see the shirt.

Hailee Steinfeld’s Miu Miu getup is the next logical step in the “sheer skirt” trend: A perforated piece of material that allows you to see what exactly is or isn’t underneath the “fabric.”

Sure, we’ve all been in that position where we think our shorts might be a little too short for the occasion. But we’ve never done what Lucy Hale has here and added a few extra inches of tatting to up the modesty factor.

You’ve probably seen a less-shiny variation on this look on Dave from accounting. But you’ve also probably seen it worn over a button-up shirt, unlike Greta Gerwig’s geeky-meets-cheeky take on the top.

Are Greta Gerwig’s trousers a smart way to show off the thinnest part of your leg (the ankle), a way to make athleisure work with a formal top, or both?

MAMIE GUMMER

Mamie Gummer got the memo on the “sheer skirt” trend of 2015, but gave it her own spin, revealing not high-waisted briefs but a second skirt instead. It’s decidedly demure, but you decide if it’s wearable.

DOUBLING UP ON BELTS

Who says fashion has to be practical? Take Kendall Jenner’s outfit, for example: One leather belt holds up her jeans, while the other (by Lovestrength) is strictly ornamental. So does that make it a waist necklace?

The model-off-duty look practically requires a pair of chic sneaks, but the overall aesthetic tends to be athletic (see: Karlie Kloss). Is Alexa Chung managing to mix sweet and sporty, or should she confine her kicks for more tomboy-esque ensembles?

We barely bat an eye when celebs choose to rock briefs under a sheer skirt, but Gigi Hadid’s peekaboo panties definitely had us doing double takes. It’s like she’s a living, breathing Calvin Klein ad.

Pulling off this tricky trend is anything but easy-breezy. And case, we mean that literally, since she’s opted for a leather Zac by Zac Posen pair. So either she’s immune to the summer heat in N.Y.C., or she’s simply demonstrating the way we’re going to want to transition the trend into fall.

These fancy fanny-packs appear on celebs from time to time (Rachel Zoe and SJP are fans), but each time we see them we have to wonder, is it hip to adorn your hips like FKA Twigs, or do you consider it a flashy fail?

Creative cleavage baring is practically an Olympic sport among the Kardashian/Jenner/West family, so it makes sense that Kendall had to take it to the next level with this super-low-cut tunic.

If the latest in updos and boyfriend jeans are any indication, it’s chic to look just a bit undone. But is Amber Heard (and her fabulous scarlet gown) taking that effortless look just a little too far with her solo statement earring? (PS: Lest we forget, Lena Dunham did this once too.)

Thanks to quirky accessory, we will no longer solely associate lady-ties with tomboy wardrobe from the early-2000s.

Model Kendall Jenner is trying to make skirt-pants happen – she even wore them to church on Easter – but if even a supermodel can’t pull these off, what hope do the rest of us have?

FISHNET BOOTS

The Kardashian/Jenner clan’s footwear never ceases to amaze us (we’re still reeling from Kim’s fur-soled heels). Which is why, even though Kylie Jenner’s just a teen, she clearly already has a leg up when it comes to wacky shoes.

Not only did Kylie Minogue opt for a funky shade for her shades, but she coordinated her purse with the red lenses. This is like the street-style version of matching your eyeshadow to your dress.

It might look like is wearing her mod Moschino coat sans pants, but there are actually teeny shorts under there. We’re pretty sure this look only works if you’re a rockstar (or have the legs of a rockstar). RiRi, of course, checks both boxes.

Over-the-knee lace-up sandals are hard to pull off on their own, but would take the tricky trend a step further and add a layer of denim underneath à la Bella Thorne?

Sure, we logically know that Elizabeth Banks isn’t wearing a spaghetti-strap tank under her businesslike Roland Mouret sheath, but doesn’t it look like she be?

FRAY-BOTTOM FLARES

FRAY-BOTTOM FLARES
AKM-GSI

There are lots of celeb-tested ways to wear wear flares, but are the rough, sneaker-trodden hems we remember from the early aughts the way you’d want to try the trend, or is Alessandra Ambrésio way off base?

THE VEST-HOLSTER HYBRID

THE VEST-HOLSTER HYBRID
Splash News Online

We’re always looking for ways to spice up an LBD, but we can’t say we’ve seen the “holsters that don’t hold” vibe tried before (though we fondly remember boho version of the accessory). Then again, Rose McGowan has always been one to go for totally risky fashion over function, so this isn’t super-surprising.

THE MAN-PEPLUM

Image
Splash News Online

Just when we’d written off the waist-defining silhouette as “meh/over,” it surfaces on an unlikely fashionista (fashionisto?), Snoop Dogg, whose frill just may be the bottom of his leather button-down poking out from under his sweatshirt. Regardless, we’d love to see him put his spin on some of-the-moment looks. Snoop, will you please try ripped boyfriend jeans next?

INVISIBLE SHORTS

Yes, if you had legs you’d want to show them off too, but just peep those peek-a-boo pockets sticking out underneath her super-long top. It looks like she’s channeling on the top and on the bottom!

THE HALF-BLAZER

Rita Ora’s asymmetrical jacket by Jean Paul Gaultier is technically double-breasted, but we kind of want to classify it as single-breasted because of that shiny sequined bralette you can’t ignore.

The singer is no stranger to a statement fur but latest coat actually is decorated with actual statements (including a giant Rolling Stones logo).

There just might be a school of people who believe that if one thigh-high slit is sexy, two must be really sexy. And it looks like may be an honors student at that particular school.

Oh, you don’t have a stole that goes with your sweats? Call up and ask if you can borrow hers for a run to the fanciest grocery store in town.

’70s-inspired scarves have been spotted on the runway and on magazine covers, but does seeing it in real life on make you want to go groovy?

SPLIT SLEEVES

Don’t let her beautiful face draw the attention away from what we’re really discussing here: Are Naomie Harris’s not-really-sleeves so chic or just chilly?

STAR-PRINT PANTS

We already knew Jenna Dewan-Tatum was a star, but in case you missed the memo, her jeans will broadcast it for you.

STIRRUP PANTS

We were thinking bubblegum look was beyond chic – but we heard a mental record scratch once we got to the underfoot attire.

FRINGE SHORTS

We once heard someone describe cutoffs as “frames for your thighs,” which makes these DL1961 fringe shorts (seen on Jamie Chung) “leg curtains.”

FLARED KHAKIS

Flares are back in a big way for spring, but we’re not sure we’re mentally ready for the tan version that brings us right back to a middle school dance. (We never looked like then, though.)

Is Kendall Jenner taking style cues from quick-change artist Kristen Stewart? Maybe. Or maybe her feet just need a break from her fashion month marathon.

Olivia Palermo’s outfit proves that she’s not only a master at mixing patterns, but textures too.

TEES WITH BALL-GOWN SKIRTS

You’ve probably heard this style tip before: Slouchy white tees go with everything. But would the one Olga Kurylenko paired with a fancy, flowy skirt go better with, say, boyfriend jeans?

STATEMENT CLUTCHES (LITERALLY)

Solange Knowles’s funky wardrobe is loud and proud. For example, while her wedding dress cape might’ve metaphorically said something like “I’m so fly,” this clutch speaks for itself: “Woof.”

BELTS THAT DON'T HOLD ANYTHING UP

Image
Splash News Online

We tend to think of belts as a utilitarian accessory: Sometimes they hold up pants, sometimes they cinch in the waist. But clearly they can take on unconventional roles, like minimizing the bare midriff on model Gigi Hadid’s Balmain ensemble.

THE BOY BROOCH

Image
Karwai Tang/Wireimage

Hey, we feel for stylish guys: It can be tough to make your suit stand out in a sea of similar black tuxes. So it was just a matter of time before a fashion-forward gent like Nick Jonas (in DSquared2) decided to make his mark with bold lapel decor.

After taking a tumble in her sky-high stage heels, it’s no wonder wants to stay firmly planted on the ground via these Alexander Wang boots.

We’re the first to admit that clothing can be an artistic statement, but what about when that statement is “Oh, I just came straight from the studio” (when, like , you didn’t)?

KRAZY KOUPLES OUTFITS

AKM-GSI

Sure, the couple that shops together, stays together. But is it adorable when they coordinate their kooky ensembles, or do you wish either (in a shredded sweater) or (in a Fleur du Mal kimono) had ceded the spotlight to their significant other?

COLLARBONE DOUBLE-CUTOUT

Karwai Tang/Wireimage

We’ll always applaud Karlie Kloss for taking a fashion risk, but at some point, it seems like there may only be so many iterations on the neckline before things start to get silly.

THE BALL CLUTCH

THE BALL CLUTCH

Now that is going to become Taylor Kinney’s “old ball and chain” this Jill Haber clutch makes so much more sense. Well, just about as much sense as such a tiny, unusually shaped clutch can make (can you even fit an iPhone in there?).

JAILHOUSE-INSPIRED JUMPSUITS

MediaPunch/REX USA

If horizontal stripes are widening, then vertical stripes like Kendall Jenner’s are slimming by default. But something tells us the desired elongating effect just might not work on us everyday folks – you know, the ones who aren’t hitting the runway during fashion week.

EMBELLISHED SIDE CUTOUTS

Image
Charley Gallay/Getty

Usually cutouts are employed to help up the sexiness factor in a body con gown, but we’re almost positive that’s not the reason for Rooney Mara’s shark-bite-esque side slits. Perhaps she sticks her hands in there to keep warm?

THE ELEGANT BODY CHAIN DRESS

Celebs like and have shown that body chains can go from day to night – or beach to black-tie ball – but Ivanka Trump’s pearl version has taken the look to a new, ladylike level.

Obviously isn’t going to adhere to the standard fashionista jacket-drape, nor is she going to pull something out of the back of her closet for Fashion Week. This out-of-the-box Julia Seamann ensemble debuted on the runway the night before she wore it to Kanye West’s Adidas show.

THE SPORTY PONCHO

When you hear “leather jacket” you might automatically think you’re in for a tough moto moment, but not so for model Gigi Hadid, who picked a pigskin-patched cloak for the Tommy Hilfiger show.

SHEER STOCKINGS AS PANTS

Considering leggings as pants are a total wardrobe staple, it was only a matter of time before the star graduated to straight-up nylons, which she wore to her Adidas Originals x Kanye West show. (And yes, we bet the rapper designed the look with Kim as his muse.)

Model-length legs are required to pull off a sassy skirt like Kendall Jenner, but would you rock this Tamara Mellon leather mini even if you had the stems?

BLUE BROWS

Lots of ladies crave thicker arches, but Catherine Giudici’s cobalt hue is the most attention-grabbing version of the statement brow yet.

THE FRONTAL CORSET

There’s a lot going on with Lily Aldridge’s dress here, but the thing that has us really alarmed is the fact that it looks like what Princess Aurora might wear on Valentine’s Day (post-super-long beauty sleep, of course).

THE SKORT

is bringing back the skort by wearing not one, but two versions of the skirt/shorts hybrid. It’s a practical approach to a super-short hemline, but it’s also giving us flashbacks to pre-K.

One bonus of wearing Jaime King’s open-heeled Sol Sana booties (consider them the not-as-well-known cousin of the peep-toe) is that you don’t have to get a pedicure, which is something we can support.

Annalynne McCord must love this blouse a lot, since she’s worn it twice in two days. That, or she wants to make sure she’s fully prepared if someone asks her to a lobster dinner.

THE ONE-SHOULDER VEST DRAPE

Keith Hewitt/GC Images

Fashionable girls all over Hollywood have been draping jackets over their shoulders for a few seasons now, but we have to admit that British popstar Jade Thirlwall has elevated it to the next level: by doing the drape with a sleeveless top.

VEILED WINTER HATS

Cold-weather gear has never really been considered dainty until now! Model Chanel Iman’s modern tiger knit beanie (by BCBGMAXAZRIA) gets a delicate spin thanks to its birdcage veil.

SEE-THROUGH MESH PANTS

Image
Pascal Le Segretain/Getty

Kris Jenner’s entire outfit is essentially made up of statement pieces, but it’s her sheer harem pants we can’t look away from. To be clear, this look is polarizing even on the quirkiest celebs, but it’s even more shocking because Kris appears to be impervious to the below-freezing temperatures outside.

STRAY-HAIR SWEATERS

Image
GVK/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images

Our moms always told us not to pull on loose threads (or gray hairs, but that’s another story), because it would just make things worse. So that’s just another fashion rule Solange chooses to ignore, considering that her airport ensemble is covered in tons of little pesky feather-threads.

154 of 178

LINGERIE-INSPIRED DRESSES

Image
David M. Benett/Getty

Satin is an impossible fabric to pull off, because even the tiniest bulge on the tiniest person gets magnified. That’s why we’re hoping to classify lingerie-inspired slip dresses, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s, as FMO (For Models Only).

THE HALF-UP TOPKNOT

The model-off-duty mainstay updo was all over Hollywood last year (even tot Harper Beckham tried the trend). But how do you feel about stars like Margot Robbie only partially committing to the chic style?

In no way do we fault any Kardashian for trying to put a new spin on their ultimate wardrobe staple, leggings, but something tells us style is not Kris Jenner-approved.

THE WONDER WOMAN DOUBLE CUFF

Image
Michael Buckner/Getty

Jaime King’s silver bracelets would’ve made an impact individually, but when worn together, she’s basically reached super-hero status. When you’ve chosen such a futuristic gown, your accessories have to be just as space-age, right?

JEWEL-TONED LIPS

A range of wine-toned hues fall under the “purple lipstick” umbrella, but we’re not talking about a Merlot or a Cab Sauv here – model Jessica White’s lip is straight up lilac. It’s so dramatic that we can’t help but wonder which came first: the makeup or the jumpsuit?

THE JAGGED-EDGE CLOCHE

We can safely say that “mod Teletubby” is a phrase we’ve never used to describe a red carpet look before. So, Rose McGowan, you certainly gave us a new experience today!

THE HARNESS BELT

THE HARNESS BELT
AKM-GSI

First shock: That retro-loving would ever go boho. Second shock: The queen of quirky suspenders has picked a pair that doesn’t hold anything up! Although we shouldn’t judge so quickly. Perhaps the torso-only harness allows her to easily snap into a rock-climbing harness or a bungee-jumping line.

Going to so many fashionable events must make so tired. Tired enough to, say, want to rock silk jammies to a W Magazine dinner. We don’t blame her – how comfortable could this have been, after all?

Would you rock a denim mini? Sure, it’s a throwback. A tri-color fur? Eh, maybe. But what about stockings that shine like Alexa Chung’s? Are they stylish – or childish?

Perfect pattern-mixing is every fashionista’s dream (right?), but Sienna Miller’s advanced stripes combo is either making you dizzy or making you want to nominate her for“Love Her Outfit”.

This look came back a few years ago, but it involved celeb hipsters and flannel for an ironic vibe. On , in cableknit, the look is a little more “I brought layers in case it gets breezy in line at Disney World.”

Paris Hilton’s see-through oversize shrug gives us “I Dream of Jeannie” vibes – but it’s up to you to decide whether this look should go back in the bottle.

When you’re trying to ensure maximum warmth this month, you might opt for a hat, gloves, a scarf – but what’s protecting your forearms?! Olivia Palermo’s appendage embellishments attempt to address that problem, but we can’t decide if we like the solution.

Say what you will about tunic, but he is wearing leggings, and thus he is following the PSW regulation that requires you to cover your butt while wearing any non-pant bottoms. What a relief, right guys? Guys?
