Celebrity Airport Outfits That Make Absolutely No Sense
For us regular people, standard airport attire is our comfiest sweats and sneakers—perfect for catching a few zzzs while squeezed into a seat designed for a doll. But when it comes to celebrities, many choose fashion over function, and most times, the looks make no sense. From Lady Gaga to Miley Cyrus, these celebrities have made some questionable choices when it comes to airport dressing. Click through to see some of the wildest travel looks over the years.
Rihanna, 2019: The star touched down at a NYC airport while wearing a sweatsuit set (casual) and a pair of Manolo Blahnik silver heels (not so casual).
Victoria Beckham, 2019: Not only did the star wear white heels, she also wore leather bottoms. Her idea of comfort is drastically different than what most of us have in mind, but hey, she’s the Victoria Beckham.
Anne Hathaway, 2019: Sunglasses can be great disguises and help stars avoid making eye contact in public, but pair it with a chic coat and a hat, this ensemble becomes more of a “look at me” put-together outfit. There’s no hiding here!
Cardi B, 2018: The singer showed up to the airport wrapped in a giant purple throw blanket and sported sparkly oversized frames.
Cate Blanchett, 2018: We did not get the pantsuit at the airport memo. Though the off-the-plane look seems polished, is it actually comfy in flight?
Izabel Goulart, 2019: The model wore a bralette underneath a floral pantsuit set as she landed in Nice for the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival.
Brigitte Bardot, 1965: Arriving at Paris’ Orly airport after a trip to Mexico, Bardot’s all smiles. But something tells us her seat mates were less than thrilled about her choice of hat?
Lady Gaga, 2015: Didn’t even make it to curbside check in before tripping in these shoes.
Phyllis Diller, 1968: When this photo was taken, American comedian Phyllis Diller had just arrived at London’s Heathrow airport with 35 (!) suitcases. Which is perhaps why she’s wearing an absurd amount of fabric around her neck…so she doesn’t have to check a 36th bag?
Lady Gaga, 2011: At Tokyo’s Narita airport in a monochrome look with maniacally high stilettos.
Lady Gaga 2014: Two years later and again at Tokyo’s Narita airport, still wearing ankle-breaking airport shoes.
Lady Gaga, 2014: At South Korea’s Gimpo Airport, this time, wearing cheeks appliques that makes her look like a Pokémon character.
Bella Thorne, 2018: At Los Angeles International Airport. Is this the biggest hood on a jacket….ever?
Ariana Grande, 2015: She’s also wearing The Practical-Until-You-Have-to-Pee Jumpsuit, but it’s her footwear that kills us.
Miley Cyrus, 2015: Sunflower-shaped pasties. Do we even need to say more.
Kim Kardashian, 2012: Having to carry your skirt as you walk is glamorous when you’re strolling a red carpet. When you’re hustling through the airport, it’s just dumb.
Kesha, 2015: Honestly worried about her getting caught on that escalator. Turn around and look where you’re going, Kesha!
Paris Hilton, 2016: The heiress needs to take her sunglasses off and watch where she’s stepping in this gown and heels situation.
Lady Gaga, 2011: She really is a master at somehow overcomplicating the airport outfit, even when she’s wearing something “normal” for her.
Lady Gaga, 2014: Arriving in Istanbul in…this…in 2014. She’s in a league all her own.
Candice Swanepoel, 2012: Shearling and short shorts. If she’s trying to confuse us about where she’s heading, it’s working.
Jessica Simpson, 2014: Not only are her shorts insanely small, but, also, absurd shoes. (Though her legs look amazing.)
Halsey, 2018: Teeny shorts and an even teenier crop top to go with it.
Paris Hilton, 2015: A gown? Really?
Kim Kardashian, 2015: Did Kim K come straight from the red carpet?!
Victoria Beckham, 2015: Don’t get me wrong, Victoria looks great here. But a matching two piece suit and heels to the airport feels like she’s doing the most.
Pixie Lott, 2016: When life gives you lemons, you make….a lemon-printed ensemble, down to the bag and shoes?
Khloé Kardashian, 2015: I get it: jumpsuits SEEM like practical airplane wear, very Top Gun and casual chic! But then you have to pee and you’re topless in an 2×2 plane bathroom or gross airport stall with your sleeves around your ankles and…never again.
Demi Lovato, 2016: Super cute! But a denim jumpsuit combo sounds rather uncomfortable.
Kim Kardashian, 2016: Should’ve worn one of those Wolford bodysuits. At least they snap at the crotch for easy bathroom trips!
