We’re talking cold-shoulder tops (practical!), full designer looks (extra!) and even a gold sequinned gown.
Sure, you could wear a t-shirt and leggings to get a shot in the arm, but folks like Marc Jacobs, Dolly Parton and Jeff Goldblum are here to provide some delightful alternatives for vaccination day. Sporting everything from a blinged-out face mask to a velvet robe, these celebrities have made getting their COVID-19 vaccines a veritable style statement. (And honestly, who can blame people for wanting to make an event out of anything that gets you out of the house?)
Although adults, including politicians, celebrities and athletes, began receiving their vaccines as early as December 2020 in the U.K. and January 2021 in the U.S., each country has its own vaccination roll-out plan, including for us Canadians, with the elderly and essential workers receiving priority at the time of publication.
So while it may be some time still until we all get our moment in the chair, in the meantime we can plan what we’ll be wearing for the big day by looking to our famous neighbours to the south. And, in these continuously unprecedented times, we’ll hold on to that, thank you very much.
Here are a dozen celebrity vaccination fashion statements to inspire you.
To get a dose of the COVID vaccine, comedian Amy Schumer wore a gold sequinned gown with what look like DIY cut-outs in the upper arm. We love the enthusiasm for the special occasion!
It’s hard to beat Marc Jacobs’s recent look, which included everything from bright pink, sequinned Comme des Garçons shorts, a matching pink Balenciaga button-up, a leopard print coat hanging off the shoulder (to accomodate the jab, of course) and white platform Rick Owens boots. All in all, he somehow topped the almost-as-glam look he sported when he went for his first dose in early March.
Parton went in sparkling when she got “a dose of her own medicine” in early March, after donating $1 million to fund Moderna research toward a vaccine in 2020. Sporting a glittery top with aptly placed cut-outs on her upper arms, Parton also had on a matching indigo face mask.
In a rare casual look, Fonda opted for a white sleeveless button-up — convenient! — along with a double face mask, what appear to be vintage tinted sunglasses and her impossibly chic natural grey locks. During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said, “I do [like my hair] too. I tell you, I’m so happy I let it go grey.”
For his vaccine appointment, Goldblum donned a plush black robe, fitted sweatpants, grey socks and a pair of leopard print slippers. “This too shall pass. Grand things are ahead,” he wrote in the caption. In Goldblum we trust.
Samuel L. Jackson
Jackson had fans in a flurry when he posted his post-vaccination selfie in which he’s wearing an animated Avengers face mask featuring Captain America, Thor and Hulk. That’s how you make it fun.
The fashion designer wore a Vera Wang white tank along with black leggings and gloves, keeping her arms vaccine-ready.
One of the very first celebrities to get vaccinated, McKellan had many of us smiling when he shared his post-vaccination selfie, complete with a thumb’s up and a rainbow flag scarf. He wrote, “It’s a very special day. Anyone who has lived as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations, the take up amongst the older generation will be 100 percent — it ought to be — because you’re having it not just for yourself but for people who you are close to – you’re doing your bit for society.”
However you feel about her politics, one thing Pelosi knows is polished style — and good posture. The U.S. Speaker of the House posed like a true politician while wearing a dark plaid shift dress with matching heels and perfectly highlighted hair. Now that’s a photo op.
Stone kept the vibe eclectic for her outdoor jab, wearing a black corduroy button-up, a colourful silk scarf and a black-and-white face mask covered in poodles. We love a layered personality!
Almost unrecognizable with her curly bright red hair, baseball cap, oversized glasses and burgundy face mask, Hyland got her vaccine in a green tank and matching teddy coat. She wrote, “As a person with comorbidities and on immunosuppressants for life, I am so grateful to receive this vaccine. … Thank you to the amazing Drs, nurses, and volunteers working every day to help save people’s lives.”
While this look might be the most basic of the bunch, we always appreciate a man who takes a moment to give his wife props. Look a little closer and you’ll see the Stranger Things actor is wearing a black and green t-shirt with wife Lily Allen’s name across the front, tagged and all.
