When summer comes along, a lot of us look to Hollywood for some guidance on the season’s latest looks for hitting the beach or chilling by the pool. Here are 16 looks that might make you think twice before you start emulating your fave celebrity!
Katy Perry’s cupcake bikini from the “California Girls” music video, also known as the outfit that launched a thousand Halloween costumes, starts out our list of least practical beach outfits for the summer. Who wants to try sunbathing with frosting melting all over you?
Nicki Minaj looks totally hot in her “Starships” music video, but her neon green hair may not be exactly the pop of color you’re looking for this summer.
Lady Gaga’s meat bikini makes a pretty bold statement; I’m just not sure what that statement is. I do know that meat would get pretty rank if you tried to wear it in the sun.
Rihanna participated in a Barbados parade in honor of “Kadooment Day,” which is apparently a holiday that celebrates pop stars dressing up as Vegas showgirls.
Fuchsia is definitely Zach Galifinakis’s color.
Rachel Zoe may be famous for her celebrity styling abilities, but she looks way uncomfortable in this stifling sarong and floppy hat, even if she is practicing proper sun safety!
Katy Perry’s whipped cream bikini in “California Girls” also deserves some attention, since it has all the sugary appeal of the cupcake look but can also be sprayed all over the screen for an instant party atmosphere!
Nicki Minaj rocked this aqua bikini in “Beez in the Trap,” but she took a wrong turn on her way to the coast and ended up at the club!
Sandra Dee as Gidget was totally not dressing for her petite body type!
Rihanna’s rainbow bikini is cute but those hot pink heels are a little more than most of us are willing to trudge through the sand in.
Snooki is known for her big personality, but this pool party look might just have a few too many things going on at once.
Supermodel Grace Jones is probably the one woman way too glamorous and intimidating for anyone to question this wild beach look.
As Marilyn Monroe’s character in Some Like It Hot pointed out, Jack Lemmon’s “Daphne” at least knew how to show off “her” muscular arms!
Ariel in The Little Mermaid may have thought she looked pretty good in her first human clothes, but this is more of a DIY project gone wrong than a fashion statement.
Sorry, Justin, but I’m pretty sure Beyoncé was the only one working this suit on Saturday Night Live.
One Direction is way cute in their “Kiss You” music video, but Hawaiian shirts aren’t exactly this summer’s latest look.
