In the last full month of summer, celebrity fashion has continued to both dazzle and disappoint. is rounding up the best and worst style moments of the month, starting with this look… Though we loved the checkered print, the silhouette of Lady Gaga’s Christopher John Rogers dress lost us. The superstar stepped out in New York City on Aug. 5 in the funky frock, which featured a strapless neckline and an exaggerated skirt. She paired it with equally dramatic platform boots for a classically over-the-top Gaga ensemble.

We have no idea what was going on with this Iggy Azalea look! The rapper stepped out in Los Angeles on Aug. 5 in quite the puzzling ensemble. Despite looking bare, her ensemble was actually a full jumpsuit featuring strategically placed bands of color woven onto completely sheer fabric. She finished off the optical illusion with fuchsia pumps. 

Jennifer Hudson was pretty in purple at the “Respect” premiere in Los Angeles on Aug. 8. The star arrived in this show-stopping Dolce&Gabbana number, which included a strapless sweetheart neckline, a thigh-high slit and an all-over sequin design. It also featured a matching purple veil for another touch of glam, all elevated by jewels from Bulgari. 

Tinashe scored a fashion miss with this lime green design. The singer stepped out in Los Angeles on Aug. 5 in a look comprised of a minidress and bizarre coat with dramatic sleeves. Perhaps the strangest element of the ensemble? She carried around a bright pink boombox (complete with antenna) to finish off her look. 

A black velvet jumpsuit? Sign us up! Jodie Comer rocked this killer Giorgio Armani look at a photocall for her movie “Free Guy” in London on Aug. 9, pairing the one-piece ensemble and its plunging neckline with strappy black heels.

Kat Graham arrived at the “Cooking with Paris” screening event in Los Angeles on Aug. 5 in this emerald green frock. Though we loved the hue, we weren’t fans of the high-necked, three-quarter-length sleeve silhouette, or the way it ended in an asymmetrical hemline, but we did love those matching pointy-toe pumps. 

Minnie Driver’s bright orange Carolina Herrera confection was one of the biggest hits of the month! She wore the look to the premiere of “Modern Love” on Aug. 2. She paired the spaghetti-strap frock with a sweet bow detail at the neckline with a bright yellow clutch by Roger Vivier and silver strappy sandals.

Jeans for a movie premiere? Strike one, Sadie Sink! The actress kept things casual at the premiere of “Free Guy” in New York City on Aug. 3, adding a bralette and a blazer resting atop her shoulders. Her topknot hairstyle was similarly casual. The only dressy element came from her cute black-and-white heels. 

Ashley Greene donned a pretty black gown by Berta at the premiere of “Aftermath” on Aug. 3. The Berta dress included subtle feathered detail at the shoulders, a peplum layer at the waist and subtle sheer patterns down the bodice and skirt. 

Audra McDonald underwhelmed at the “Respect” premiere in Los Angeles on Aug. 8. We weren’t fans of the dull shade of her long-sleeved dress, or the way she added those funky multicolored pointy-toe pumps. 

Jordin Sparks sported this cute floral minidress with an unexpected color combo — a teal and red flower print — at the premiere of “Respect” in Los Angeles on Aug. 8. We loved the long-sleeved frock and the way she paired it with simple black sandals. In fact, it was one of our favorites from the premiere.

A whole lot of fringe! Though we didn’t love the silhouette of the gown Brenda Nicole Moorer wore to the “Respect” premiere on Aug. 8 — the funky frock included a halter-style neckline, a ton of cut-outs and a miniskirt with a floor-length fringe overlay — we did love the pretty pink shade.

Skai Jackson stepped out in Los Angeles on Aug. 6 in this cool street style getup — a sleeveless blue dress with a geometric print that she paired with shiny silver combat boots.
