Face mask inspo: 7 celebrities slaying face mask fashion

These celebs are our new inspiration for face mask fashion

Monday, May 18, marks the first phase of easing lockdown restrictions, and as stores begin to open, it’s looking more and more likely that face masks will become a necessity for public outings.

But wearing a mask doesn’t have to be such a stark and stringent necessity in your daily life.

Many celebrities have been embracing masks as a new type of accessory to their wardrobes, even choosing ones that match their outfits.


And it makes sense. If we have to wear one for protection, we might as well look fabulous in it by choosing masks that show off our unique flair.

Here are seven celebrities that are inspiring us to glam up our face mask game.

As usual, the fab Cindy Crawford is starting a new trend — matching face mask ensembles.

Billie Eilish was a stunner in her Gucci face mask outfit at the Grammys back in January, so she's kind of become a fashionable face mask icon.

@bradfalchuk and I were grateful to learn our local farmers market was open this morning; we walked there (keeping lots of distance) and donned masks and gloves once we got nearer to the market, only taking them off when we were almost home and there were no other pedestrians in close proximity. Yesterday I heard tales of crowded hiking trails and parks. Although we are all on a learning curve and aren’t always perfect as we figure out this temporary new normal, we must take the orders seriously and not abuse the freedoms we still have; grocery store and essential errand runs, bike rides or walks (being disciplined about correct protocol). It’s not the time for denial. We must take this seriously and shelter in place. It’s time for nesting, reading, cleaning out closets, doing something you’ve always wanted to do (write a book, learn an instrument or a language or learn to code online, draw or paint) going through photos, cooking, and reconnecting on a deeper level with the people you love. I find hope in the generosity, love, protection and care I see and feel through out our country everyday and my heart goes out to everyone directly affected or simply in fear. We will get through and I bet you our humanity will shine like never before ❤️

NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION. #MaskingForAFriend. Let’s talk about masks. I’m masking for my friend Doctor Robbin Cohen, my UPS man JP, the staff at my local grocery store, my immuocompromised poppa, and my mom of course, my best friends, and YOU! Why? Well, these little face coverings matter, in a big way. We’ve seen some incredible effects of the early adoption of face masks (look up the stats in the Czech Republic!) at dramatically slowing the spread of COVID-19. Here in LA, I’m so grateful for every person I see on essential errands who is wearing a mask, which is almost everyone I see! And because I know that their masks protect me, and my mask protects them, I know I’m doing my part to love and support my neighbors and essential workers by wearing mine. • As some states are considering opening back up slowly over the next few weeks, it’s TRULY ESSENTIAL that we ALL do our parts. Y’all! The universal use of face coverings -- not PPE grade, let’s leave those for healthcare +  essential workers -- is an important step to add to our practices of not touching our faces, extended handwashing, keeping to safe distances if we’re out, and of course, staying home! (We can’t get lax on those either.) You can make your own cloth mask out of a handkerchief -- @colinhanks has a great tutorial on his page -- an old fabric sample -- like my pal @ianparkerdesign did for me, with fabric from his studio! -- old tote bags, or whatever you have access to. Follow my sister wife @hilarieburton to learn how to sew them! • Now! MAKE SURE, when you wear your mask, YOU DO SO CORRECTLY!! Per an epidemiologist: 1) make sure the mask covers your NOSE AND MOUTH! 2) Do not touch the mask portion with your hands when removing it (meaning only touch the ties or ear straps). Wash your mask like you’d wash your laundry!! Keep that baby sterile. Be mask-smart! • So. Will you join me in committing to wearing a mask whenever it’s absolutely essential for you to be in public? Who are YOU masking for? #MaskingForAFriend #COVID19 @who @cdcgov @PandemicActionNetwork 📸 by my iso pod partner @samanthamarq, obvi

Sporting a steely blue bandana, the Big Bang Theory star is certainly a lot more fashionable off screen than her alter ego Amy Farrah Fowler.
