It’s hard to explain why some celebrity looks go viral and others don’t. I think a lot of it has to do with who the celebrity is and what else is going on at the time. Some weeks are so filled with high-profile events that epic looks get lost in the shuffle, unfortunately. Other weeks, it seems like every outlet is covering the same random look. And for every Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez look that goes viral, there are a dozen others that didn’t—but could’ve. I’m here to discuss the “could’ve” looks.
I combed through more recent-ish celeb outfits than I can even count in search of those with viral potential but for one reason or another, didn’t quite get there. So let’s give them the attention they deserve. Scroll on to see looks from Anne Hathaway, Kate Moss, and more, that you won’t be able to stop thinking about.
