The hot spring trend every celeb is trying — spaghetti'ing it up!

Spring is here — um, yes queen! But how do you avoid looking super basic while you’re sipping rose on a rooftop bar posting pics of the sunset to Insta? Take a cue from celebs and trendsetters and pour a big old jar of spaghetti sauce all over your clothes!

We saw this cool look ALL over the runway back at New York Fashion Week, where it set fashion editor tongues everywhere a-WAGGING:


The best part? It’s totally chic and high fashion but also totally down-to-earth and simple. And celebs are on board for this totally cool and delicious trend.

Kate Hudson


Here’s Kate Hudson rocking a boho look all splattered with sauce!

Here’s a great way to make that sauce pop and grab some attention right off the bat — mama mia!



And Rihanna rocks her sauce off with an all-white outfit.

Zooey Deschanel


Here’s Zooey Deschanel rocking fierce vintage marinara — she found it when she was helping her parents clean out her grandmother’s kitchen pantry!

Cate Blanchett

But if your taste is a little more muted, you can be cautious with those s’ghetti spills.

Here’s Cate Blanchett pulling off a more understated look with her trademark elegance.

Miley Cyrus

Even alt fashionistas can get in on the action.


If you’re one of those gals who LOVES trends but you ALWAYS have to put your spin on it, how about rocking it out with some pasta still in the mix like bad girl Miley Cyrus?

Damn Daniel!

This trend isn’t just for the ladies.

Damn Daniel! Back at it again with the white vans … covered in wet spaghetti sauce?!

But beware! Trends are like express trains — you can take them too far! You might be tempted to try chili, but it’s harder to pull off. The meat starts to smell after a few hours, and the color is WAY duller than a classic marinara. Most of the time it can just end up looking like a soggy stew and that’s basically the complete opposite of spring and everything it stands for.

Marion Cotillard

Alfredo is a fun spin but only for darker colors — don’t even THINK of wearing it with a cream-colored gown because it will blend right in with the fabric.


Even Marion Cotillard’s ephemeral beauty can’t save this literal hot mess!

Ready to try it at home? Albertson’s, Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s — all these stores are stocking the look this spring. You definitely don’t need to go with a brand name (most store brands are perfectly serviceable), but if you like some flash, Prego and Ragu are both super solid options and spill smooth onto any fabric. If you’re working with something more delicate (like silk or satin) a chunkier sauce will cling better, so try Newman’s Own (amazeballs in Garlic Roasted).

And if you’re feeling super crafty you can make your own. This recipe is so so good and so so simple. Added bonus? Throw the leftovers on some noodles and you got yourself a nice little dinner.

At the end of the day, this trend is all about HAVING fun — so rock it!
