By now, donning a face mask in public has become second nature for much of the US population, as many cities continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, which has spread to more than 6.5 million people across the United States of America. In an effort to help stop the spread of coronavirus and lead by example, celebs have begun to wear face masks while running errands or out on the town. Many celebrities wear a face mask with style.
While some of them wear typical blue medical masks (think Kate Hudson), countless others have expressed themselves in colorful, patterned, or texturized coverings that keep them stylish and well protected. While many of those masks are created by fashion designers and artists, others are worn with the intent that buying them will bring in donations to charities. Like pieces of a fashionable wardrobe, masks come in an array of styles but also prices. Some couture-like coverings are going for hefty sums and others remain stylish and budget-friendly.
This is the new normal. As we get used to it, let’s check out more celebs who currently set the standard for stylish mask-wearing amidst the ongoing health crisis.
Celebrities Who Wear A Face Mask With Style
Jennifer Lopez: Disco Ball Face Mask
How does one describe the style of Jennifer Lopez? Would you say it’s tight-fitting? Sexy? A little bit over-the-top? I would suggest that Ms. JLo loves the glitz and the glam, the flashy sequins and the sparkle. A sequined Katie May face mask has all of these characteristics and more. So it’s no surprise that JLo recently wore these masks in both ivory and pink during bike rides with fiance Alex Rodriguez in the Hamptons.
The non-medical covering, cleverly titled the Disco Ball Face Mask, is double-layered and made of nylon mesh with a glitzy sequined exterior. The inside has a soft lining. It’s perfect for JLo and it’s certainly perfect for any person that wants to feel a little more glam, even when covering their face.

Jessica Alba: Happy Prints Face Mask With Style
Jessica Alba knew that when it became important to wear face masks during the coronavirus crisis she would want to do it in style. That’s why her business, The Honest Company, created face masks for kids and adults in “happy prints” to make the current pandemic (and the annoying aspect of wearing a face mask) a little more bearable.
Alba’s non-medical grade masks are offered in three prints, including a colorful cactus print, and are available to purchase in 2-pack, 6-pack, or 8-pack units. The reusable cotton face masks come with a pocket so you can insert a filter. Five filters are included when you buy a 2-pack.
The cactus one worn by Jessica in the picture above also comes with a solid green option. The prints are fun for all ages, and the price, well it isn’t so bad.

Lizzo: Matching Facemask Set
Back in January, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Lizzo said bluntly, “My body is not a trend.” The rapper has been certainly been vocal about body image, accepting your body, and not conforming to societal demands. Since then, she’s become popular for more than just her music. She’s also the queen of body positivity.
So it’s no surprise that the performer recently modeled a statement-making swimwear look – aptly titled pankini (for pandemic bikini.) It’s loud, bright, bubbly, and sexy. And it comes as a set. Matching gloves, bikini top, and bikini bottom are part of the package. I’d buy it just for the mask.

Brie Larson: Floral Face Mask
Brie Larson is an Oscar winner, a superhero, an actress and a filmmaker, but I never thought of her as a style icon in the way I looked at fashion figures like Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Kate Middleton, or Cardi B. Still, she’s had her moments on the red carpet, opting for ruffled blue Gucci, streamlined Celine or silk and tri-toned tulle from Rodarte.
She also grabbed my attention in the face mask department by opting for a Roses Face Mask by Eagle Rock Werkshop, a non-medical grade face mask currently in need of restocking as it was sold out after being seen on celebs like Charlize Theron, Hilary Duff, and Alessandra Ambrosio.
These fashionable face coverings, also called “date night masks” by the company who makes them, are made of comfortable athleisure fabric and have unisex adult sizing. All proceeds for the mask will be donated to COVID-19 disaster relief.
This could be Miss Larson’s most stylish decision yet.

In May, singer Katy Perry joined the coronavirus charity bandwagon, so to speak, by announcing she would be selling merchandise to support COVID-19 charities. This time, it was a face mask with title of her latest single Daisies, which would benefit the Santa Barbara-based aid organization DirectRelief.
The face mask features a striking design, which is a picture of the singer and an image from the song’s video. The mask featured the fashionable singer as we know best — bubbly, carefree, and beautiful, just like the daisies she was surrounded with. Little did we know at the time that she and actor Orlando Bloom would come to call their first child Daisy Dove.
