WTF Was She Thinking? Bad Celeb Fashion Week in Review

April 24, 2008 • Celebrity Style

We love a good British Red Carpet! Thank God the British Academy Television Awards 2008 were this week! Such tragic fashion. Have no fear, there was plenty awry stateside too!


Claudia Winkleman at the British Academy Television Awards 2008 in London

Comment: I have no idea who she is, but her pants are too long! Besides, this an outfit for work (sans ugly bag), not a red carpet! I just can’t get over those pants. How hard is it to have something tailored? Seriously. It’s London for Pete’s sake. Don’t they live for that stuff?

She’s thinking: I don’t have a thing in my purse, so there. OK, a toothbrush, but what am I doing here?


Charity Wakefield at the British Academy Television Awards 2008 in London

Comment: The problem with this gown is that it is too long and hanging too low on her. She needed to have the halter tied a little higher…a simple fix. That band of gold should be up higher on the ribcage. Is it horrid? No. But, it’s a good example of how a little tailoring can go a long way.

She’s thinking: Does anybody even know who I am?


Misha Barton at MTV Australia Awards 2008 in Sydney, Australia

Comment: Oh Misha, Misha, Misha! First of all, what was she doing there? Secondly, what the hell is that gold nightmare she is wearing? She has been batting a goose egg lately. Not only is this drop-waist (a trend we hate seeing back) gold number unflattering and just plain hideous…the shoes are dreadful! Women with size 11 feet should never wear white shoes. Never. It makes your feet look larger than they are (trust me with a size 8.5 I had a pair once (in the 90’s) and rarely wore them). It screams…

She’s thinking: Look at my giant feet!

Were these the FUG Fragrance Awards? This gown made of very unatural fibers is tres ugly! Oh my goodness. Something stinks…this dress!

She’s thinking: I may dress like hell, but I sing like an angel.

What’s with the Monty Python and the Holy Grail hood (see picture above)? The bright red trademark lipstick really does nothing for her. She needs to softer it up a bit. I have a visceral response to this outfit and white shoes. Make it stop!

She’s thinking: "Ah don’ wanna talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food-trough
wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and
your father smelt of elderberries!" – Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Comment: Kim sure has been a busy girl in La, la, land this week. I have to admit, I think she always dresses horribly. Why? Well, her clothes are just too tight (as evidenced here). Contrary to popular belief, too small clothes make you look heavier! We get she likes to show off her ample booty and chest, but come on! We love fashion too much to see it abused this way! The top half of the dress on the left is not so bad, but the bottom half is pulling (see the line folds) and it just makes her thighs look chunky! I also really hate the white sandals and bag she has chosen. The outfit on the right is a total disaster.

She’s thinking: I like (my) big butt(s) and I can not lie!

    Such a good point about the tailoring. It can make or break an outfit. And Misha: retro gone so, so wrong!
