Top 15 WORST Celebrity Looks of 2011: Part 2

Posted on December 28, 2011

Second verse, same as the first, ladies! Hit it!

10: Rose Byrne in Christine Alcalay

We’re pretty sure that this set of pictures singlehandedly killed the 5-minute Frankendress trend on the red carpet and for that, we have to thank Rose. Sometimes, someone’s got to wear the absolute worst example of a trend in order to kill it dead.

 

9: Sienna Miller in Emilio Pucci

Sloppy, dirty, fringy, and awkward, it was nice to see Sienna again. Or at least, it was nice to get a reminder why we all hated Anna Wintour for telling us this mess was a style icon.

 8: Julianne Moore in Lanvin

Julianne Moore in Lanvin

She’s talented, charismatic, and gorgeous, but she still dresses like an utter crazy person. Oh Julianne. We wish we could quit you. Alternately, we wish we could pick out dresses and shoes for you.

 

7: Adam Lambert, Dressed Like Gay Frankenstein


Uh oh! T Lo’s gonna get quite the shitstorm on twitter today! But really, Glamberts, can you blame us? Even if you like Adam’s fussy goth/rockabilly blend, this awkward look is not doing him any favors. And we’re not normally this rigid about animal skins in fashion, but those smurfs didn’t have to die to make you a pair of shoes, Adam.

6: Christina Aguilera in Dolce & Gabbana and L’Agence

Christina Aguilera attends “The Voice” Press Conference at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California in a L’Agence blouse and Dolce & Gabbana skirt. Belt by Barbara Bui. Boots by Alexandre Birman.

Let’s all thank Christina for helpfully reminding us all that dressing at 30 like you did when you were 18 is at best a mistake, but at worst, a tragedy. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which one this is.

    Oh my god, I can’t wait to see the worst 5. I am distracted from the hideousness of Rose’s dress, however, by the shininess of her hair and her lovely face.

    • foodycat

      She is so very beautiful and yet gets it wrong so much more than she gets it right.

    • BerlinerNYC

      Yes. She’s like a glamorous spy, except of course she’s so conspicuous that she’d be useless as a spy. Maybe she was actually in character as a Bond Girl for the next film in the franchise?

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

      I’m thinking the shiny “hair” is not hair but a synthetic wig. For sure, the bangs are not hers.

      she weirdly looks like kate hudson in that first picture to me. does anyone else see it?

    If nothing else, someone needs to buy Julianne Moore a pair of pantyhose.

      Yes! As we age we need something to cover the spottiness of the discolorations of our skin and something to hold all the itty bitty lumps and bumps in properly. And well those shoes didn’t help.

          Point taken, but having submitted to [women on the red carpet in general, not specifically Ms. Moore] diet, exercise regimes, botox, surgery of various kinds, and spanx or more specialized underpinnings, it seems silly when these women don’t embrace the flattery hosiery can provide.

    I’ve seemed to have blocked most of these horrors off my memory.  Rose’s dress, hair, make-up are really bad. *mentally preparing myself for the top 5*

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    I don’t think Christina’s look is horrible – at least she’s wearing something that fits, for once, and her boobs aren’t trying to escape confinement.  Julianne Moore is just tragic.

    • Anonymous

      I agree.  It isn’t her usual trashy, traffic light girl get-up.  But, but, but, girl that is not your dress!

    • Anonymous

      But Christina’s doesn’t fit—at least not in the back. The yoke on the blouse is doing weird things, and you can clearly see back fat over her bra band.

      But at least she’s wearing a bra, so points for that.

      the worst part about christina’s look is the fact that her makeup/tanner/bronzer/whatever is bleeding onto her hair–time to ease up on that shit. and fire your makeup person.

    Now we’re getting to the good stuff. I think my absolute favorite in this bunch is Julianne with her Quasimodo dress and Hobbit feet. It’s a killer combo.

    And how little boy blue Glambert is managing to look farty while wearing bright neon shoes, 80 lbs of foundation and a Bart Simpson head is beyond me.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Rose, from her expression, realizes just how horrifying this is.  She is NOT happy.  Sienna has so much going on, from the too pouty face, to the tap shoes instead of regular footwear, to even really begin.  I actually like Julianne’s dress, its those SHOES with the drying kelp attached to them that are so utterly crazypants.  Adam. I can’t. I. simply. can. not.  And finally Christina, there are so many ways to dress an ample bod and look like Hottie McHotterson, this is NOT one of them.  It marks her shape at every single wrong spot.

    Oh, dear God–these are all classics.  Or whatever “classics” are in hell.   I thought I had developed immunity to the Julianne Moore getup–the weird, sacky dress and the shoes out of Davy Jones’s locker–after having gawked at it for long minutes when it was posted here earlier, but that is one powerful fashion virus. My eyelids are twitching, I have hives on my hands, and my windpipe is closing up.  I really thought that would be #1 this year. 

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Oh but there were many thing SOoooooooo much worse.  Wait till tomorrow and you will be reminded of some of them by our esteemed bloggers, T and Lo.

  • Anonymous

    Yes, Rose’s dress is hideous, but I’ll give her a break because the haircut makes me think vintage Vidal Sassoon.

    As for Christina, those middle two pictures don’t even look anything like her. Aside from that, I think she needs a make-under. I’m guessing her big problem is, she doesn’t have anyone around her who will say no to her. And when it comes to aging gracefully with your clothes, I don’t think most people do it gradually. I think you develop a style, or a manner of dressing, that you feel comfortable with and then sometimes get stuck in a time warp, and need to wake up. For me, the wakeup call came when I was in my mid-30’s and attending the Sweet 16 party of a young cousin: There was a 16 year old at the party who was wearing the exact same outfit I was. I decided it was time to update my look.

      I’d like to see a celebrity edition of What Not to Wear.  Christina could be the 1st celebrity.  Re-do her to look modern, hot at her age, and clothes that flatter her body and about 1/4 of the makeup–just think of the $$$ she could save on horrid extensions, foundation and eye makeup.

        If so, I’d like to see Trinny and Susannah rather than Stacey and Clinton. I think T & S would pull considerably fewer punches than S & C.

          Yeah, I used to like them until I noticed that. And no, not everyone looks good in a short, sleeveless cocktail dress, S and C.

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            I’m kind of fine with that, actually.  Because we’re not talking about celebs who have free stuff handed to them constantly, or women who spend a fortune on their wardrobes.  The people who go on that  show are looking for the kind of staple pieces that they can build a wardrobe on and have the versatility to dress them for every event — most of the middle class live fairly similar lives in terms of what they need from their wardrobe fundamentals.

    The crazy thing about Siena Miller’s dress is that Helena Bonham Carter could have pulled it off.

    Wowie zowie…I’d forgotten all about that hideous patchwork dress Rose Byrne wore earlier this year.  Truly gawd-awful.  Christina Aguilera looks amazingly awful as well….kind of like a skater pirate gone bad.  That puffy shirt is awful, and what the hell is that piece of fabric sticking out of the back yoke?

      is that just the sleeve on the other side?  not sure either, and she looks like a hunchback too in that shot…

    Rose’s looks like when my grandmother gave me scraps of fabric from her sewing projects, and I draped and tied them on my dolls to “make” dresses.

      I own a vintage smoking jacket in that one patterned fabric, so I get nostalgic when I look at her left side.

    Even wearing a fugly dress Rose’s hair manages to be shiny and pretty?  Do you think they spent extra time on the hair to hide the hideousness of the dress?

    Blue is not so much Lambert’s color. It clashes with his orange skin.

    Blue suede shoes are in style this year!  Didn’t you get the memo?  I love Adam in blue.  At least he dared to try something different than his fabulous, signature black ensembles.  As far as the hair goes, well it only stays the same for about 2 weeks.  His McQueen shirt is gorgeous!

      You can like Blue Suede Shoes and still find HIS BSS ugly and a poor choice for the outfit.   (as I do, as I just  got a very cute pair yesterday!)

    What amazes me is how these ridiculously attractive people can make themselves look so bad. On purpose! By dressing up! I mean, it’s not like they’re average looking people who ran out of the house in pajama bottoms and Crocs to go to the store to get milk and bread before a blizzard hits. Nope. They choose these looks (often with a stylist’s help), looked in the mirror and honestly thought they were hot  noodles.

      Exactly right. What’s even more amazing and baffling is that average looking, non-famous people somehow manage to make themselves look great when it’s called for. Most of the women I know are perfectly capable of pulling themselves together and looking fabulous, even though they don’t have stylists or access to the kinds of clothes that famous, ridiculously attractive women can get on a moment’s notice.

      I can imagine that some of the women rely too heavily on a stylist’s judgement & the stylist relies too heavily on a designer name or on what is “on trend.”  And I can imagine that some rely too much on their own judgement & wishful thinking and don’t realize they lack skill with color & proportion and above all, have no sense of how a look will photograph.

      But I’m baffled that the problem continues look after look for some of them. You’d think there’d be a regular revolving door of stylists being hired & fired until a good match was found.

  • Cathy S

    I still like the blue suede shoes. But yeah, the rest is horrid. I wish I hadn’t been subjected to Rose Byrne’s dress yet again. I’d forgotten about that yellow panel in the back.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Z3B3CYXXCEALAIOUEBCL5UMWQM Linda

    Actually, Lambert wore that same suit with a black top later that evening and the look was soooo much better :)  We tend to agree on the shoes tho. ;)  The hair, well no comment. hahaha It’s gone already :) 

  • Emmy

    Lucky for this fan the red carpet look was effectively bleached from my brain when Adam and Queen brought the house down with their EMA performance.

  • Call me Bee

    Christina’s outfit shows the frustration I have with current fashion.  I wore almost this same exact blouse–to the office–through the late 70s and early 80s.  It was ‘nécessaire’ with your power suit.   So now it’s high fashion?   Oh yeah–it’s not cuz she’s on the worst dressed list–HA! 
    Poor Jullianne.  She’s one of my fave actresses, and  always looks like a nursing home rejectee on the RC.  As does Sieena Miller in the piano scarf. 
    Thanks for the memories….

  • mrspeel2

    As I said when you originally showed her, if Christina dyed her hair black she could have been mistaken for Snooki’s twin.

    Sloppy, dirty, fringy, and awkward, it was nice to see Sienna again. Or at least, it was nice to get a reminder why we all hated Anna Wintour for telling us this mess was a style icon. I disagree. Although it is fringy, I don’t see Sienna’s outfit as “sloppy, dirty or awkward”. I agree with Anna: it IS a style icon because it’s a throwback to the NYC Bohemian era of the late 50s/early 60s and I love it.

      I’m not positive, but I believe TLo are referring to Anna Wintour declaring the mess that is Sienna Miller a style icon.

  • Alloy Jane

    These are all so beautiful.  In that “thanks for the morning laugh” kinda way.  Christina needs a hard reboot, big time.  And I totally forgot about Julianne’s shoes.  How could I?!  They’re so terribly, hilariously hideous.  I don’t know who Rose Byrne is, but her hair is shiny.

  • http://twitter.com/Tribyen Brittany (Tribyen)

    As someone who’s normally a big fan of Adam Lambert, I definitely agree that this is his worst look to date.  I would have liked him in that blue suit if it were a more flattering cut and/or if it were less “boring office employee”. I like the shoes & the McQueen shirt together, but w black pants or something, not with that suit.  And luckily that haircut didn’t last long, it made it look like his ears were trying to escape down the side of his head!

    Rose Byrne can vye for the sexiest woman alive title — but my God she’s almost unrecognizable here. The dress is whack and cheap-looking, but honestly, the hairstyle alone (shudder) takes her to 1970s PTA meetings.

      I thought the same thing when I first saw Sienna Miller. I mean, I love Chelsea Handler. She’s looking pretty good these days and she makes me laugh out loud. But Sienna looked like Chelsea-from-several-years-ago on a very bad day.

    Rose B. *couldn’t* have gone out in public in… whatever that is on purpose, could she?   

    Sienna Miller… *this* is what the Olsen twins will look like in a few years after they have gone full-on Grey Gardens!  If you can snap their pic as they pop their head out the broken window.

    Xtina must be judged on a curve.  Any time she doesn’t look like a 40-year-old Vegas dancer at 3 AM is an improvement… office party or no.

    Adam Lambert wins. Hands down. To say that he looks like a gay Frankenstein isn’t fair to gays or Frankenstein. Between his ridiculous hair and the silly clothes…and it’s all topped off with that insanely abnormal skin color. I don’t know if he hits the tanning bed, spray tan, or make up, but it really sets the whole horrible look off. While the others might be wearing bad outfits, his whole look is bad. He needs a make under.

    Christina has morphed from fresh faced and cute to Dee Snyder’s little sister to Snooki’s swedish meatball cousin.   Sadly hot mess does not even apply any more.  Pull yourself together.  Mariah even managed to for f’s sake.  

  • marilyn

    Rose-beautiful girl, ugly dress.  Hippie finery on the front, and gatorade color on the back.   Sienna-sloppy hair, washed out makeup.  Correcting those two things would have improved the situation a lot.  Dress-might have worked if she were wearing tights, like her lace top, and sexy black shoes.  Or, if dress had been floor length.  Black tights with black flat shoes=prison matron look=not for evening.  Julianne-Trash bin shoes and puse that matches her legs.  Yuck.  Summer shoes/winter dress.  Colors too extreme for her (black/off white)  She needs moderate jewel colors to shine.  Black okay if wearing heavy makeup.  This dress is a black sack with prsicilla curtain sleeves.  The purse that matches her legs (not her sleeves) grosses me out.   Adam-pick of the litter.  Contrasting shoes make his legs look short.  Great makeup.  Christina-too old for this look from the neck up.  She is trying to be Brittney Spears at 18, and for all her shortcomings, Brittney had the sense to give it up.  Prison matron tights and boots, matronly evening top and cheerleader skirt.  Did she just grab random stuff from her closet to get dressed or what?   The skirt/blouse combo makes her look thick through the middle and short waisted.

    Oy gevalt. I’m remember another Frankendress, one worn by Julianne Moore, and a Bottega Veneta worn by Julianne; I wonder if they’re going to make it into the top 5. How can someone so gorgeous dress so terribly? Just search on her name on this site alone and while there are one or two hits, it’s mostly a tragic parade of misses.

    Ahhh, these are all gloriously bad. Out of all of them though, the most tragic is Christina who not only can’t find flattering clothes but also can’t find anyone professional or amateur to do her makeup or hair. Somewhere under all of that is a pretty girl. It’s bizarre how much effort is expended on making her look haggard, sloppy and cheap.

    I cannot believe Lancel had the idiocy to call their November 2011 event ‘135 Years of French Legereté’.

    In September 2011, Dominique Strauss-Kahn had his big return-to-France interview on French TV, and in response to how all that had happened had changed him, replied: “I’ve lost my legereté.’, which was an epic, memorable and much-reported on understatement for (at the very least) persistent sexual harassment across two continents.

    You really want to associate your overpriced purses with that.
