“WTF Was She Thinking?” Bad Celeb Fashion Year in Review. Looking Through the Rear View Mirror

December 20, 2007 • Celebrity Style

What is a year without a review of superlatively bad celebrity fashion? We have not been publishing this feature for a full year yet. But trust us, we have more than enough material. Here are some of our favorites, er the year’s worst!

Kat Kramer at the "Superbad" cocktail reception at the 7th annual Hollywood
Life Breakthrough of the Year Awards in Hollywood.

This outfit is super bad. The dress, the matching colored bag, the
leather gloves and the out-of-date shoes. Oh and let’s not forget the
sheer black hose.

She’s thinking: I’m a cougar. I’m hot. Meeoooow! It took me a week to put this ensemble together.

Keyshia Cole at BET’s "106 &
Park" in New York City

Comment: It’s never a good idea to wear roadkill. Though the belt is a nice touch
try, this vest screams "CAVEMAN"! I love the exposed arm tattoo though,
god forbid there is a shirt under this vest, she’d boil to death! Don’t
even get me started on the heels on the boots. They are just wrong! Her
stylist needs to be fired. Fast!

She’s thinking: It’s 55 degrees in Manhattan today. I’m burning up! Get me some ice water!


Rachel Deland at the Love N’ Dancing Cast Party in L.A.

Comment: What
the heck is this (she says slapping her hand to her forehead)? Let me
see if I have this straight…furry boots in L.A., shorts, a silk
negligee top and a shawl pashmina thing. Oh and tattoos, let’s not
forget those! How can we? I give up.

She’s thinking: I have about an inch to spare on this forearm so I’m booking for another tatt tomorrow!

Shauna Sand Lamas at Dr. Rey’s Shapewear Instant Shape launch L.A.

Comment: Speaking of nightmares, the ex-Mrs. Lorenzo
Lamas is a testament to bad plastic surgery. Sad considering she’s at a
plastic surgeon’s event. You have to give her credit for having three
kids (they must be embarrassed as this is her normal attire). But,
that’s really all the credit you have to give her. Only in L.A. would
you see a woman over 25 dressed like this. If I have to explain what is
wrong with this outfit then I give up.

She’s thinking: Shapewear my ass! This is all me, baby. OK and some plastic. "I’m a Barbie Girl in a Barbie World."


J. Lo performing at the Taj Majal Casino in Atlantic City

Charo called. She wants her Love Boat costume back. Those pants are
ridiculous. Seriously. You have to admire her gumption though.

She’s thinking: I love Vegas! Vegas baby! I’m so money. Wait. I’m not in Vegas?

Mischa Barton at Hamptons SOCIAL in the Hamptons

Oh Mischa. What has happened to your sense of style? Did you lose your
stylist once you lost your show? The dress isn’t bad. It’s just the
choice of  a head-wound wrap I don’t get, and those damn Keds! If the
dress were a little longer and paired with a great heeled sandal (oh
and natural hair) we would not be talking about her.

She’s thinking: I love the Hamptons! My Keds rock.

Camilla Franks at the ’30 Days of Fashion & Beauty’ Launch in Australia

What is so tragic here (besides the dress) is that this is a FASHION
and beauty event! This dress is horrid. Personally I’d use it for rags.
It’s see-through at the top (I swear I see nipple) and bunches out at
the hip. Just horrid. What a pretty girl. She got the beauty part
nailed. Such a shame.

She’s thinking:
Maybe I should not have worn this dress my nephew tye-dyed at camp. What was I thinking? Elle McPherson looks so much better.

Savanna Samson at the "Stood Up" release party in NYC

A bikini and some silly string does not an outfit make. Yikes. Don’t
try this at home. OK, at home, but don’t leave your home wearing this.

She’s thinking: I am so hot. Thank God I decided to laser my pits!


Posh at the 4th Annual Glamour Women Of The Year Awards in London

I really don’t understand the fascination with this woman. Frankly I
find her freaky looking and  totally severe. She is Scary Spice. Aside
from the kick-ass YSL Tribute pumps this outfit is a joke right?
Seriously. What is with the fingerless leather gloves? Did she really
ride a Harley to the event? Somehow I doubt it.
She’s thinking: Only 10 more lbs. before I hit my goal weight. Take that America!

Victoria Beckham Chanelle (from Big Brother) arriving at her birthday party in London

Wow, she has not only mastered the look, but the smile-less pose devoid
of personality. This is even worse because it is a totally cheap
imitation. Be careful when reading and then buying those "Celebrity
Looks for Less" because you could wind up looking like this…a cheap
fashion victim.

She’s thinking: Now all I need is a hot, super wealthy football player and I am on her heels (those would be YSL heels).


Debra Messing at the opening night of Shakespeare in the Park 2007 production of Romeo and Juliet.

I normally dig most of her outfits and I love her, however, this is the
sad reality of wearing maternity dresses when you are not pregnant. YOU
LOOK HUGE! In this case, she looks as if she is wearing a nightie. Oh
and if you are pale and are going to wear white…load on the lipstick
or add some color to your face.

She’s thinking: I just rolled out of bed, think anyone notices?


Whitney Port at the Diesel Grand Opening in L.A.

Well isn’t she just the cutest? All ready for a hoedown. I just love
the denim on denim look (not) and the boots just add a certain flair.

She’s thinking: Hi Ya’ll!

Patricia Fields at the New York City Opera and Brooklyn Academy of Music Benefit Gala 

Comment: It
is so hard to force myself to remember that this woman styled the
chicas on my favorite show ‘Sex in the City." I mean the skirt on this
carwash dress is sending shivers down my spine. Add to that, she’s well
over 50 and the tube top is hideous on everyone.

She’s thinking: Take that beotches! I’m laughing all the way to the bank!


Rachel Dratch at Magnolia Pictures "Crazy Love" New York Premiere

The funny lady looks funny dressed like a girl or rather a pirate.
Maybe it’s time for a stylist. She looks like Debbie Downer.

She’s thinking: What am I doing on a red carpet? Get me outta here. Hurry up will ya?



Fran Drescher at Lambertson Truex’s Melrose Place Boutique Opening

Is there really anything  not annoying about her? The voice, the
clothes. When it comes to cloying tackiness, nobody else compares. A
leopard print headscarf? Axle Drescher’s coat might not have been too
bad had she matched it with a skinny pant. The wide legs with (are
those?) cowboys boots. Yeesch. 

She’s thinking: Brilliant! Nobody can see the Botox marks on my forehead.



Alesha at the New York launch of Vanessa and Angela’s New Sneaker "Pastry"

Yes, the songstress is adorable, but this is a woman! She is not 12.
Even though the boots are Chanel, they are fuuuuugly. Sorry. I don’t
know bugs me more…the pink bag or the black bra.

She’s thinking: Baby, I am one hot baby!



Avril Lavigne promoting her New Album "The Best Damn Thing" in Tokyo.

This clearly is not the best damn thing she has ever worn. Suspenders,
bermudas and (are those) hose? Oh and what the hell is on her feet?
