After quarantine has deprived us of the joys of dressing up, many have vowed to never again take for granted an opportunity to turn out a look. If the weekly grocery run is the biggest event we have to look forward to, we're going be the best-dressed shopper in Whole Foods. And if picking up a Starbucks order marks the peak of human contact we'll reach each day, we'll wow the barista time and time again.
Yes, the events of 2020 have everyone dreaming about main character fashion. You know, like when Carrie Bradshaw walks the streets of New York in a tutu or Cher Horowitz wears a matching plaid skirt suit to school? It's the art of overdressing and putting everyone else's ensembles to shame, regardless of the occasion. It's no surprise that celebrities have mastered the art of main character fashion more than us mere mortals, whether that means donning a Dolce & Gabanna gown for community service or platform boots for a Sephora run. Here, L'OFFICIEL rounds up 14 of the best celebrity fashion moments serving main character vibes.

At the beginning of 2007, Naomi Campbell threw her cellphone at her maid when the woman couldn't locate a missing pair of the model's jeans.

In an interview years later, Campbell said, "Why shouldn't I have done? Why should they expect me to go looking bedraggled or something?"
