Walking the red carpet is a daunting task for any celebrity — the fear of wardrobe malfunctions, interview snafus, and worst dressed lists loom . But while most sartorial slip-ups eventually fade, a few live on forever. In honor of the upcoming Golden Globes, we’ve put together a list of the all-time worst dressed celebrities to ever attend these tony awards. And while some entries are obvious — ahem, Lara Flynn Boyle — some may surprise you. Who would have thought the words Diane Kruger and Marchesa would go together so terribly.
She’s multiplying! Just when you thought the world had more Snooki than it could handle, the Jersey Shore’s tiniest guidette is now adding makeovers to her list of (non)talents. If you feel like starting your day with a heavy dose of bronzer, pink lipstick, hairspray, and leopard print all applied to a confused-looking 11-year-old girl, well, then this is the video for you.
Because it’s Friday, because exhaustion is preventing a more thorough examination, and because there really are no words to describe it, we hereby present to you: The Cap-Sac, which arrived graciously and inexplicably in our inbox a few short minutes ago.
Some of the best designer collaborations come from unexpected pairings, like Reebok’s Basquiat sneakers or Lanvin for H&M (who really saw that one coming?), but that said, there are some things that just aren’t meant to be combined. Like Teva sandals and stiletto heels.
Blake Lively might be as famous for her acting as she is for her style, but one of the most well known facts about Ms. Lively is her insistence on styling herself solo. And while we normally credit Lively with having some seriously enviable ensembles — and we’re not alone — the outfit she put together to unveil Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree topper was almost more than we could handle.
What is with those Gossip Girl girls this week? First Blake has a bra faux pas, and now Leighton looks all sorts of crazy in a lace jumpsuit. What would the people at W think?! Seriously, let’s discuss Leighton cuckoo outfit choice for last night’s Harry Winston cocktail party.
Just when we thought gag gift underwear couldn’t get any more offensive, we were proven wrong by the folks over at David Shorts. Now you too can rock the package of Michelangelo’s David — in both normal and, erm, extended versions.
Blake Lively — though she maintains she’s stylist free — usually manages to ace the fashion gauntlet that is a red carpet. But at Thursday night’s opening of Realm boutique in NYC, Lively arrived in one of the strangest outfits we’ve seen in a while — Lady Gaga and her ilk not included, of course. You’ve seen the top half. Just wait for the bottom.
Oh, dear. Mischa Barton went out on Sunday to watch the 1st Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic – a signature summer event from across the pond — and while celebs like Rachel Zoe and Minnie Driver managed to pull off vintage chic style with aplomb, Barton stumbled in her attempt to channel flapper fashion.
Dear Alexa Chung’s Flats, Why do you exist? No, really: why? How did you, an extremely pointy, creamy beige-colored flat featuring a studded t-strap with no less than three cross-straps including an ankle one, come to be? I’ve done some looking, and I haven’t managed to uncover who designed you, but I’m sad for them.
Critiquing Rihanna’s outfits is starting to get a little Lady Gaga-esque. While they’re not bad, per se, they’re usually not good, and they have a tendency to be just crazy enough to render any criticism a moot point. But when we saw her out and about in London while wearing a tea-length crinoline skirt, ankle socks with heels, a statement tee tied at her midriff, and an oversized grey blazer, we couldn’t help but bite.
We normally don’t see much harm in two celebrities wearing the same dress, but when the dress is Chanel, the first wearer is Blake Lively, and the setting is Chanel’s Spring 2011 show, one can’t help but wonder what Chanel’s PR department was thinking when they let Alexa Chung wear it earlier today.
Every now and then one of our favorite style stars will make a sartorial decision we can’t help but regret on their behalf. Sometimes its a bad dress, an unsightly ‘do, or garish makeup — but today’s offender are these studded, strappy, and pointy-toed flats that we spotted in the front row of Monday’s Chloe show. Can you guess who they belong to?
Katie Holmes joined fellow fashion plates Anne Hathaway and Eva Mendes at Variety’s 2nd Annual Power of Women Luncheon this week, and while they all went with day-ready prints, Holmes’ Louis Vuitton number looked a little off.
Normally, we don’t pay that much attention to Taylor Momsen‘s attitude — despite her distaste for clothing that covers the lower half of her body, we can relate: we were all 17 once. But Momsen looked so downright miserable at last night’s launch of Macy’s Material Girl line that it actually gave us pause.
Part of the stress of Fashion Week is figuring out what on earth to wear. But, unless you’re someone like Carine Roitfeld, the editor in chief of French Vogue, or blogger Bryan Boy, no one actually cares. So you can imagine why it’s hilarious for us to see that those two exact people wore the same leopard print Givenchy blazer to New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
We love Whitney Port, but it’s a sad day for fashion when she’s in the running for best-dressed at a red carpet event. Which isn’t necessarily a criticism of Giuliana Rancic — though we’re not necessarily used to seeing her on the good lists either — but of their fellow guests at last night’s OK! Magazine party.
Nothing makes us happier than seeing a group of famous, beautiful people looking fabulous. But we can’t lie: we get a secret pleasure from seeing them look awful, too! And at the Emmy Awards last night, there was no shortage of awful looking ensembles. From dresses that were way too short and tight to printed fabrics that looked like something you could only see in a kaleidoscope, this year’s worst-dress list looks as bad as the best-dressed list looks good.
At most stylish red-carpet-y events, we’ve been trained to expect to see clothes that look good on the stars we love. At last night’s Women in Film Pre-Emmy Dinner, we saw Elisabeth Moss look stunning, and everyone else looking, well, not-so-stunning.
Kim and Kourtney Kardashian stepped out Wednesday night for the launch of Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s Fall Fashion issue and both their outfits left us totally confounded.
