Janelle Monáe at the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party on March 4, 2018

Janelle Monáe is famed for her love of capes on the red carpet and for the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party, the actress wore a slick red co-ord by Christian Siriano. The bejewelled bow, sweeping cape and slick shirt all caught our attention and for that, it’s one of the most memorable ensembles of 2018. [Photo: Getty]

20 celebrity outfits that left us scratching our heads in 2018

We often turn to the A-list pack in search of sartorial inspiration whether it’s a red carpet ensemble that’s made our Pinterest board or a street style pap shot that’s inspired our latest shopping list.

Yet although armed with a celebrity stylist and wardrobe team, Hollywood’s biggest names don’t always hit the right fashion notes.

This year, the near-naked trend reigned the headlines and although a major talking point, the likes of Bella Hadid and Rita Ora failed to make some of our best dressed lists as a consequence.

2018 has also been a time of experimentation for a bunch of celebrities with Amber Heard trialling a couture swimming cap on the red carpet to Lady Gaga making Shakespearean ruffles a thing.

But if we had to give the award for this year’s most unusual wardrobe, actor Ezra Miller is a sure-fire winner thanks to that Moncler puffer dress.

From Rihanna’s pope-inspired Met Gala ensemble to Robert Pattinson’s twist on the traditional tux, these were this year’s most unusual (and wonderfully weird) celebrity outfits.
