This white-and-silver gown with blonde, curly hair is very Grecian goddess on her way to Mykonos for Gay Pride — and we love it.

Rick Ross: C+

This look would be perfect for a wealthy, retired oil tycoon floating about on his yacht. More is more but it’s never enough.

Blac Chyna: C

Blac Chyna as Ivana Trump circa 1995 is priceless. If they ever do a biopic Lifetime documentary, they need to cast her.

Lil Nas X: A-

This gender-fluid, glam cowboy look is everything you’d hope for. It is so wrong that it is so right. It’s purely amazing. He owns it, and it looks great on him.

Offset: B+

The yellow harness and excessive diamonds make him into an S&M-blinged minion — even more fantastic.

The exaggerated horn shoulders and drapey tail would be more fitted for a satanic cult initiation ritual than a red carpet. We are waiting for the flames.

Yara Shahidi: C-

She is an ice skater on a break; she’s just finished her performance and has put on a sweater to warm up. It gets really cold in the ice skating rink — we don’t blame her. Let’s hope she nailed the triple lutz.
