From Rihanna To Kylie Jenner: 8 Celebrity Fashion Trends The World Just Isn’t Ready For Yet
Get back to us in 2028.
We’re all for celebrities making giant steps for mankind when it comes to pushing beauty boundaries but occasionally – just occasionally – we can’t help but feel that progress for progresses sake is a pretty bad move.
From the time Kylie Jenner wandered outside in an acid yellow towel dress to the time Rihanna attempted to reinvent the skinny brow that everyone would rather leave in 2005, these eight fashion/beauty trends are controversial to say the least.
Thin Eyebrows – Rihanna
Just when we’d all thrown out our tweezers and embraced our natural bushy brows, Ri-Ri came through on the cover of British Vogue with a set of pencil-thin brows that could potentially change the beauty game forever. Tbh, we'd rather not be reminded of our terrible teenage decisions ever again.
Towel Dresses – Kylie Jenner
Proving that literally nobody out there should ever leave their house in a repurposed bathrobe, the 20-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has either jumped on the towel trend *too* soon or proved that it will just never have the legs to become a fashion staple.
Flame Wedges – Kendall Jenner
Not going to lie, these are actually pretty breathtaking. Even so, does anyone out there have the right outfit or the sheer confidence to head out to the shops wearing a pair of literal flamethrowers on their feet? Ask us again in 2028 and our reply might be different.
Thigh-High Boots – Ariana Grande
It’s something that only Ariana Grande or another pint-sized superstar could ever carry off. Trust us. When we’ve attempted this sexy look IRL, we look like we’re channelling Puss In Boots in the Shrek series. Not something we usually aspire to when it comes to a good outfit.
Luminous Tracksuits – Kylie Jenner
Ah, the second time the Life Of Kylie star has appeared on this list. While this particular look is definitely striking, it kinda brings to mind our favourite lollipop lady rather than being an ensemble that might have bae swiping right on our Tinder profile.
Belted Boots – Jennifer Lopez
Do our eyes actually deceive us or is Jennifer Lopez wearing a pair of boots that look like they’ve fully slipped down from her waist? We’ve got to give this creation a 10/10 on the imagination scale, but we’re not sure the world will ever be fully ready to recreate this look IRL.
Bandanas – Kaia Gerber
Ready to relive those Avril Lavigne days? It looks like Generation Z have fully adopted the bandana trend, which – on the plus side – means we don’t have to worry about any more upkeep on our dark roots. Hmm. We can't say it's our favourite resurrected 90s trend.
Waist High Boxers – Dua Lipa
It was the look that every skateboarder rocked back in school, and Dua has proved that there’s still some interest around making a pair of boxer shorts the key element of an outfit. Is this something we think looks good on the right person? Yes. Would we ever try it ourselves? Nope.
Celebrities. Gotta love 'em.
