Celebrity Style: The Stars Are Wearing Major Graphic Prints

In Hollywood, there are the stars known for wearing wild, crazy outfits (read: Rihanna, Gaga, and Nicki Minaj, among others), and those stars who have a more elegant — some would say traditional — approach to fashion. Rarely does one side cross over to the other’s style turf, but when typically polished actresses start incorporating some fun, excitement, and a little bit of risk into their beautiful outfits, it's always a site to be seen. And that’s exactly what Hollywood’s hottest have been doing recently with their big, bold, graphic pieces. And we’re not talking about little polka dots or sweet floral prints. We’re talking large-scale, attention-grabbing printed sweatshirts, dresses, and more. Check out eight stars who are making these major graphic pieces the next big trend to try.

Camilla Belle

With her bold brows and porcelain skin, Belle is one of those women who just screams sophistication, with a wardrobe to match. But when the actress experimented with this two-piece Dior outfit that featured a curved neckline, a subtle cutout in the back, and a stunning flower-and-nature portrait, she had us wishing she’d dress outside the box more often.

Jessica Alba

Nailing the best work-meets-play look ever, the actress looked amazing at the East Meets West event on February 5 with a tiger-print Kenzo sweatshirt tucked into a sleek leather skirt. Finished off with booties, a statement necklace, and a studded clutch, Alba has given us all the inspiration we need for our next date night or day in the office.

Olivia Wilde

The hot mama-to-be looked polished as always at a 2013 Hollywood Foreign Press Association event, all while wearing a bold 3-D printed Canyon Clover dress and emerald green accessories to match.

Anne Hathaway

With a new stylist in tow, Hathaway is getting a little more adventurous with her everyday style, looking casual-cool in this panel-printed Givenchy sweatshirt, ripped jeans, and moto boots at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Rashida Jones

Not one for showing much skin or rocking bold prints, Jones changed up her game at a recent movie premiere and had heads turning to catch a glimpse of her street art–inspired graphic Prada dress.

Lupita Nyong'o

She may be making a name for herself with perfectly tailored and minimally chic gowns on the red carpet, but the 12 Years a Slave actress is proving she can have fun with patterns, too, wearing this pleated, parrot-printed Miu Miu dress to a movie premiere last fall.

Lily Collins

This Givenchy Bambi-print sweatshirt definitely made its rounds — it was seen on everyone from Amanda Seyfried to Elle Fanning — but Collins did it justice at Paris Fashion Week with nothing other than ankle-strap heels, slicked-back hair, and a bold burgundy lip.

Michelle Dockery

With a face this pretty, we don’t know why you’d want to show off another one, but the Downton Abbey actress manages to do it quite fashionably in this graphic Prada dress at a 2014 SAG Awards pre-party.
