Gemma Ward is wearing some particularly bad stuff here. Now, is this one hideous thing or pieces of a lot of hideous things? I think that there could be a slip sticking out, but there also seems to be a lot of layering going on. What makes me so sad is that this kind of ingenuity is respected in any other creative craft besides wearable fashion. In other words: great crazy quilt. Bad dress.

Maria de Medeiros scared me with the ironed hair, thick necklace, and general spookiness, but then my eyes drifted to the thing in her hand. Would you dare to carry your silver doughnut pillow around with you? There’s no way that thing could be a purse, so it’s got to be a hemorrhoid inflatable cushion. . . or an accessory that I simply don’t get. But… um, what? It’s about as unexplainable as that dress.
There’s flared, and then there’s flared. Katie looks like an absolute giant here, but not model-giant, just scary-giant. She also looks madly disproportionate, because her jeans half and her jacket half don’t seem to be anywhere near the same size. Adding irony is the fact that Katie was actually at a wardrobe fitting for Mad Money. I wish they has taken an extra 5 minutes and hemmed her jeans. Or something.
Apparently Courtney Love is causing a stir with a Chanel copy from the runways last month. Karl’s supposedly totally. pissed. off. and the fashion house “is concerned clients might mistake the fake for the real thing,” according to WWD. I bet it’s not really the dress that they are angry about. Courtney looks so bad that if even if it were the real thing, it would still be insulting for Chanel. How is it staying up, anyway?
Oh wait. It is.
I couldn’t let the Grammy Awards pass us by without making at least a tiny bit of commentary on Best New Artist nominee Imogen Heap. As in Heap o’ Mess.
If you look just a bit closer at the look that says “Mary Poppins in a Garbage Disposal” you will take note of the applique lily pads on the dress. The lovely parasol. The circa 1990 Whitesnake video boots. And clutched in her hand? Yes, that’s a frog. In case you are just not hip enough to get it.
…to the question that Rachel Bilson asked herself before walking out the door…”Does this look good on me?” Points for Daring, but definitely not for Flattering.
In fact, the more I stare at it, doesn’t Rachel look like a paper doll? The collar’s creating a no-neck effect, even though she looks like she’s daring us to say she looks bad with a face like that. Very well. Rachel wins, but just barely. The earrings, purse, and shoe selection save her from a smock of terror. It’s the kind of outfit your mom would have killed to have you wear on your first date: shapeless, sack-like, and thick.
The members of Juicy Rumors’ style police keep a sort of fashion file, and every once in a while (like any good photo album!) we like to page through it and giggle. Now is one of those times. To start your week off right, simply feast your eyes on this: one of the greatest fashion disasters we’ve ever seen!
Yikes. While that turtleneck could be considered slimming, it’s certainly not doing anything nice for Jessica Simpson. At all. What a dumpy little dress, and sad, sad makeup. She really looks like she’s had a bad year. Why can’t Jessica get out of this style rut? Hairstylist Ken Paves and her wardrobe stylist are always close by! Well, one thing’s for sure: walk around looking like this and no one’s going to buy anything from the Jessica Simpson line. *Shivers*
Little Ali is definitely my preferred Lohan, but we’re not on the same page right now. I know she’s really young, but she needs to avoid taking fashion advice from her sister!
Leggings can be one of the worst mistakes a girl can make, and that’s definitely the case here. Did she borrow them from Lindsay? I hate the way they’re bagging at the knees, and do they have stirrups or are they tucked in? Either way, one word: ug.
