Happy October! It’s time to check out the fashion tricks and treats of the month with Wonderwall.com, starting with this miss… Though we appreciated Posh Spice rocking some serious color, this strange ensemble that Victoria Beckham wore on Oct. 12 — a red-and-black blouse with high-waisted bright yellow pants from her own fashion label — was too much. And if that wasn’t enough color, she also added a bright green Bottega Veneta bag to the mix.

No one does crop tops quite like J.Lo! Jennifer Lopez arrived at the premiere of “The Last Duel” at Lincoln Center in New York City on Oct. 9 in rich chocolate brown Herve Leger coordinates — a long-sleeved, high-necked top paired with a high-waisted fitted skirt — that combined for a sleek ensemble. She completed her look with strappy metallic sandals and a matching clutch.

The Loewe look that Zendaya wore to the Women in Film Honors Gala on Oct. 6 — a gray sleeveless column dress with a bold gold breastplate — received rave reviews, but we weren’t as obsessed with this particular Loewe creation as we’ve been with others. Despite not loving the funky frock, we did appreciate the way her pointy-toe pumps matched the metallic detail on the gown perfectly.

One of our favorite looks of the month came from Ruth Negga, who sported this sweet pink Carolina Herrera number at a reception for the film “Passing” in London on Oct. 10. The midi-length dress, which featured puff sleeves and an otherwise fitted silhouette, paired beautifully with her killer matching Roger Vivier slingbacks.
Yikes! Cynthia Erivo attended the Los Angeles Philharmonic Homecoming Concert and Gala at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on Oct. 9 in this fringe-filled disaster. The pale pink strapless frock included an insane high-low hemline skirt with over-the-top fringe detailing that cascaded in a soft pink-to-orange ombre.
Cynthia Erivo’s cheery yellow Greta Constantine minidress was a much better pick. The star wore the sweet ruffled frock with pointy-toe black pumps at a screening of “Twenties” in Los Angeles on Oct. 11.
Socks with sandals? Hailey Bieber pulled off this controversial trend while grabbing coffee in Los Angeles on Oct. 5, adding leggings, a black crop top and a puffy leather jacket for a surprisingly chic streetwear fashion moment.
At the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week on Oct. 5, Kristen Stewart put her own twist on a classic Chanel set, wearing a black lace bustier underneath a pink, white and black jacket and skirt combo. To complete her edgy ensemble, she rocked slouchy socks and loafers, resulting in an underwhelming getup.
The cute and casual Louis Vuitton coordinates Alicia Vikander wore at the Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week on Oct. 5 scored her a fashion hit. The star’s black-and-white look included a leather-trimmed jacket over a cute minidress that paired perfectly with black studded boots.
Our next miss? That comes from Farrah Abraham, who arrived at the Women in Film Honors Gala on Oct. 6 matching her hair color to her odd dress — a bizarre feathered and spiked silver frock with strange chain detailing and gold embellishments. Next up, get a better look at her coordinated tresses…
Farrah Abraham‘s elaborate updo — complete with braids and jewels — corresponded perfectly to her dramatic silver frock, which included chain and spike details throughout.
Amber Tamblyn’s getup at New York Comic Con on Oct. 9 left a lot to be desired (mainly the absence of that cape!). Christian Siriano designed her gown, which featured long sleeves and a slinky pleated silhouette plus a seriously dramatic cape.
We adored the Louis Vuitton look that Phoebe Dynevor wore to the fashion house’s Oct. 5 show during Paris Fashion Week. The silver separates included a sweet pink lace detail, thick white straps and a black bow at the waist. She completed the chic look with simple black sandals.
Phoebe Dynevor gave us another great look at an event in Cannes, France, on Oct. 8. Her sleek take on a pantsuit included a black crop top, an oversized jacket and fitted trousers. We loved the way she completed her look with pointy-toe pumps and a simple belt.
Another pantsuit we adored this month? The caramel-colored coordinates that Olivia Thirlby wore at New York Comic Con on Oct. 9, to which she added a bright white shirt and white pointy-toe pumps to complete her sharp look.
