Self Esteem Boost: Bad Celebrity Style

| January 6, 2011 at 8:43 PM

Before we indulge in too much celebrity style worship, we felt it was our duty to remind you that celebrities don't always look their best in public. We're not talking about when they're going out for coffee in their pajamas, or walking their dog in their every day clothes. Those paparazzi snaps of celebs trying to unwind and live a normal life reveal our unhealthy celebrity obsession in today's global culture. What we ARE talking about is when a celebrity is dressing up for an event or for the red carpet; when a cadre of stylists helped them get ready and when they still get it wrong.


Sometimes, it helps to see "flawless" celebs with ridiculous outfits on to remind us that underneath the glamor, they're not perfect. Therefore, we're taking pictures of celebrities who are usually so "together" and compiling a Worst Dressed list. These are celebs who are known for having impeccable style incorporating just the right amount of fashionable trends. There won't be any Snookies or Keshas on our list because they are always (reliably) poorly dressed. We're looking for bad outfit anomalies. Why? Because it's fun! It's like a scavenger hunt!


Kirsten Dunst looks matronly, and about 15 years older than she really is in this dowdy ensemble.

The "dowdy" virus must be in the air! Looks like Heidi Klum caught it, too!



Not even Mischa Barton can make lederhosen look good.




This is a major departure from Anne Hathway's normally glam look. Mismatched and strange.




You lost us with that hoop skirt, Uma.




Madonna either got lost in 2001 or has been raiding her daughter's closet for inspiration. This look is dated and doesn't fit at all with Madonna's normal style.




Being cuter than a button does not excuse the typically stylish Selena Gomez from those pants! Horrendous!




Drew Barrymore is wearing a sad sack dress in a happy shade of yellow for a look that results in a confusing mess.




Christina Aguilera has NEVER heard the phrase "less is more."




Is this really Gwyneth Paltrow at the Country Strong Premiere? Gwyn, we know you can do so much better. This 90's lace up dress throwback is atrocious!



Rihanna is normally so incredibly stylish! We even wrote a blog about her gorgeous style. Everyone makes mistakes, though. This is one of hers.

    I think the worst fashion offenses were done by Uma, Drew, and Gwyneth. Eeek.

    I love Uma’s coat, if it were a half size bigger and not over a ball gown.
