A former Disney star's belly-button baring cut-out, more fashion hits and misses for May 2022

_

Happy May! Wonderwall.com is rounding up the best and worst dressed stars during this stylish month, kicking things off with this young actress-singer… Dove Cameron took a fashion risk at the Billboard Music Awards on May 15 that didn’t quite pay off. The actress arrived at the Las Vegas event in this wild Ashlyn gown with one of the strangest cut-outs we’ve seen lately (and that’s saying a lot!) — a plunging neckline that fell below her belly button. The bold red strapless gown also featured a sheer panel down the center, which we’ll see closer next…

Dove Cameron’s strapless gown included a funky neckline that cascaded down past her belly button and included a sheer overlay. The star opted to keep her hair simple after picking such a risky frock, parting her dark locks down the center.

Kim Kardashian served up a serious fashion hit — with plenty of history — at the 2022 Met Gala on May 2. The reality star got permission from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum to borrow the iconic dress worn by Marilyn Monroe as she sang “Happy birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy 60 years ago. The shimmery golden frock, which Ripley’s purchased in 2016 for nearly $5 million, required a lot of work to wear — Kim lost 16 pounds to fit into it and dyed her hair platinum blonde to really get into character.

Why, Maren Morris? The country singer turned up at the iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas, on May 7 in this disastrous combo — black leather trousers and a sequined crop top with a tie detail. Tying things together? Equally shiny silver pointy-toe pumps. 

_

A better take on silver this month? The slinky and sparkly Givenchy gown Michelle Dockery wore to the “Downton Abbey: A New Era” movie premiere in New York City on May 15. We loved the gown’s high neck, long sleeves and column-style, floor-length skirt in a bold metallic fabric.

_

We’re still trying to figure out this next look! Carrie Underwood rocked this puzzling pick at the iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas, on May 7. The country music singer appeared to be sporting a denim vest over top a high-neck purple tank top, purple acid-wash denim cutoffs and… well… some wild embellished denim boots to boot! When she turned around, things made a little more sense…

_

Oh! Carrie Underwood was rocking this strange getup because it was inspired by the title of her upcoming album, “Denim and Rhinestones,” which she had emblazoned in rhinestones on the back of her sleeveless jean jacket. 

_

Another disappointment in the country style department? Miranda Lambert’s Billboard Music Awards look on May 15 — this dark denim pantsuit sans undershirt paired with pointy-toe denim pumps.

_

Megan Fox brought some serious glam to the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on May 15. The beauty rocked this custom off-the-shoulder gown by David Koma complete with a thigh-high slit, built-in gloves and a very dramatic rhinestone flower detail at the shoulder. Let’s take a closer look…

Silver-embellished flowers topped the shoulders of Megan Fox’s black gown, balancing out the structured neckline of the piece. She also showed off blunt bangs and some very dramatic eyeliner.

_

It’s hard to believe Millie Bobby Brown is only 18… especially when she wears mature gowns like this disappointing Louis Vuitton look. The star turned up to the season 4 premiere of her show “Stranger Things” in New York City on May 14 in this snoozy frock with one black shoulder detail and a belt on the otherwise white gown.

_

Jennifer Lopez gave us a delightful fashion surprise while out in Los Angeles on May 3 — suspenders! She rocked gray trousers with the odd accessory over top a white T-shirt and added sneakers for a very un-J. Lo look (that she still pulled off!).

_

We didn’t love Billie Eilish’s polarizing pick at the “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”-themed Met Gala on May 2. The music superstar opted for this corseted gown by Gucci complete with a bustle, sheer green lace sleeves and a massive floral embellishment at the neckline. At least it was on theme?! Plus it was eco-friendly — Billie told Vogue it was made completely of “existing materials.”

_

At this point, it would be a surprise if Kylie Jenner walked a red carpet in a look we loved. She continued her strange fashion streak at the Billboard Music Awards on May 15 in this bizarre long-sleeved Balmain illusion dress.

_

A vision in Valentino! Nicola Coughlan arrived at the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards in London on May 8 in style in this hot pink ballgown. The “Bridgerton” star’s selection included plenty of ruffling, bow details and a full skirt with a pleated hemline for an overall fabulous, feminine frock. Next up? A look at her accessories…

_

Nicola Coughlan also killed it when it came to accessories, adding diamond details like stunning drop earrings and a unique multi-finger ring.

“Selling Sunset” star Christine Quinn always makes fashion statements on her hit Netflix show, so we weren’t surprised she was wearing this over-the-top ensemble when she visited the Empire State Building in New York City on May 16. The reality TV star’s strange futuristic getup — an electric blue pairing of a long-sleeved crop top and high-waisted stirrup pants — was completed with equally odd clear heels.

_

Elizabeth Hurley was pretty in pink in this Naeem Khan design, a long-sleeved sparkly floor-length confection with a plunging neckline, at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party in New York City on May 10. The ageless beauty added equally stunning jewels…

_

Elizabeth Hurley added even more pink to her look with these stunning gemstone earrings.

_

Well, those are some baggy jeans, Maria Menounos! The star arrived for a taping of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in New York City on May 11 in these unfortunate dark jeans — wide-legged with giant holes at the knee — and topped them with a white T-shirt and cropped black leather jacket.

_

Gwen Stefani turned heads in this eye-catching highlighter-yellow Vera Wang combo of a crop top with a full skirt and matching opera-length gloves at the Met Gala on May 2. We appreciated the bold color choice in a sea of black that night, and the way it proved neons are seriously trending. Next up? An example of neon not working as well…

_

Neon yellow that didn’t work as well? Heidi Klum’s Toni Maticevski dress, which the “America’ Got Talent” judge rocked with some odd accessories at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on May 15. The star sported the bold yellow strapless frock with a super high slit with the bizarre additions of black opera gloves and over-the-knee boots.

_

Julianne Hough rocked the controversial color combo of red and pink while visiting the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” studios in New York City on May 11. She really pulled off the unorthodox duo via a cheery red pantsuit and a silky pink tank, completing the ensemble with red sandals.

_

Though it was certainly elaborate, Emily Ratajkowski’s bizarre Met Gala pick on May 2 left us with more questions than answers. Mainly: What did this have to do with the theme “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”?! The beauty rocked a vintage Versace number that first went down the runway in 1992 — it featured a multicolored beaded bodice paired with an equally vibrant high-low skirt crafted from various fabrics, textures and shades plus and a neckline that didn’t require her to wear any jewelry…

_

Emily Ratajkowski’s 2022 Met Gala look by Versace included this stunning high-neck detail in the same stones as the bodice of her dress. She wisely opted for an updo to put the intricacies of the couture on display.
