With all eyes on celebs, watching their good and bad days, A-listers are always under pressure to look good. But trying so hard, is often times, a futile move. We don’t blame the celebs for putting a wrong foot forward, rather it’s their stylist who should be blamed.
Here, we ring the alarm bells for those celebs whose stylist need a lesson in fashion. In excruciating detail, we explain why it takes more than just good looks to carry off an outfit. These ten stars, for starters, should get someone else to pair their clothes, someone with their head on their shoulders – because remember, we are always watching you!
We know its summer, but that doesn’t give you the fashion license to dress like a stripe-less yellow bee. Olympian Lindsey Vonn is one of the hottest athletes out there and she’s known to make the boldest fashion choices when it comes to red carpets. But this time, it’s a definite miss. This yellow turtleneck Christian Siriano creation paired with the white running shoes and the ballerina bun is what scary fairy tales are made of. It’s like the outfit is pretty in parts – the buttercup yellow tulle skirt and the high bun, along with her warm glam makeup complement each other and the turtleneck would look great with the sneakers. Vonn probably decided to keep the sports side of her intact as she decided to go princess – sadly, not winning any medals this time.
It’s one thing to show up at a music festival looking like a total free spirit – it’s completely another thing to look like a wannabe cheetah in the desert. Coachella concluded this weekend, but not before Nicki shocked us with this pantsuit which is safe to say an ensemble of atrocity. While the tank looks like it’s a size too small to hold her voluptuous bosom, the pants look more like something you’d sleep in. The outfit has too much gold – overdone shiny boots, bangles that are as many as a centipede’s feet and that hideous envelope clutch. As though this wasn’t enough, Nicki went ahead and added a mask like tasseled band to her face, that hangs on the side of her face like pillars of bad taste. This is a no-brainer – too much of everything, especially leopard or cheetah print, is a terrible thing.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen! Once the queen of fashion, Paris Hilton now seems like she’s a has been who is trying too hard to stay relevant. This maxi dress has us looking for real stars, so that we have an excuse to look away from the ones on her dress. What were you thinking Paris, or were you too intoxicated to notice? Aside from the fact that it looks like as if a 5-year-old picked out the outfit – disco ball jacket, crystals on her chest and face and tiara type floral headband – we must really ask, what is up with the gloves? Are you driving? Is Chris Zylka’s hand too sweaty? Did you just get back from a fight with your stylist for dressing you up this way? We want answers!
Nicole Kidman gave us pointers on how to do gold wrong at the recent Country Music Awards red carpet. She stepped on the carpet wearing a custom made Michael Kors golden gown and we didn’t know whether to wipe our eyes on her massive sleeves or get her a cloak, pronto. It’s a great color for a red carpet when combined with a little skin. The sequins on this one look like little cells that will ooze alien serum anytime now and her dark eyes, bronze lips and washed out super white makeup do not help. It looks she’s put less than no effort to put this outfit together and it shows – the hair is messy and her foundation, mismatched and cakey. She could have dressed up in a fun casual chic outfit for the ACM awards, especially since Keith Urban looks so chilled out in his blazer and pants combo, instead of looking like rich Aladdin.
Kylie Jenner can usually pull off literally anything – from strange one pieces to a hidden pregnancy but this was one thing that looks like it could have been avoided. Kylie and baby daddy Travis Scott decided to take some time off parenting and catch a game but it appears as though Kylie forgot to leave her maternity clothes at home. These black pants are ill fitted to say the least and they clearly do no justice to her amazing figure. The material looks cheap and sloppy and it ruins what could have been an on-point ensemble.
Amber Rose is no stranger to shocking fans with her outrageous fashion statements but what she chose to wear at the Neon Carnival in Thermal, California is the most heinous attire worn till date. At least, during other times we see her skin and well-maintained body to forget the woes, but this time there is no excuse. A multi-colored diving suit with printed nipples and abs (of a man). The graphic bodysuit has confusing prints, from blue legs stocking in black vines to polka dots and yellow circles, the design meets an abrupt end with a purple plain inner thigh design. While we examine the outfit upwards, it only gets worse. Muscular abs on a racer outfit in orange and marking the breasts with same block prints. Rest is blue and black-out, just like our eyes when we see that outfit. If careers could die because of bad fashion choice, we would be seeing the last of Amber Rose.
Just when we though Athleisure would never run out of style, here comes Rita Ora in her ill-fitted tee with crumpled sleeves and out of place cat-eye sunglasses. Or maybe it is her thin unshaped eyebrows that is making her shades look so out of her face. But since I am here to talk about her fashion sense and refrain from remarking on her facial features, I will stick to the point. Her t-shirt is way off to sync with her grey Burberry trousers. This is a perfect example of how one t-shirt is a ride or die to determine the look of an entire outfit. Sorry, not sorry, we just wish the singer had opted for a plain white t-shirt with straight sleeves than doing this walk of shame.
Just because she is not reprising her role to sing at the royal wedding does not mean she can ruin the red carpet. Even a child would know that balloon sleeves aren’t meant for elegance, especially if it comes with a bodycon. When a stylist presents the one-sleeve balloon bodycon dress, you ought to fire her immediately. This is one statement where the legacy of a little black dress is murdered forever. She showed up for a preview at The V&A looking armed and muscular in one hand and toned and slim in the other, literally. RIP little black dress. The unrecognizable Ellie Goulding murdered you.
A portrait picture of Theron at the premiere of ‘Tully’ looks ravishing as she dons black silk dress with butterfly art on the chest. Then you see the full picture and.. cringe! What on earth is that? Looks like the metallic butterfly pooped on her skirt and left an unfathomable design. Or maybe the butterfly just flew out of a continent located on the center of the earth and drew a map. The black ensemble was good enough with one butterfly but we don’t know why the print on the skirt was necessary or even more importantly, we don’t know why Theron would opt to wear this. Her ravishing makeup and accessories were ruined by her outfit choice but we are hoping she will make amends with her next red carpet event.
Dust your boots please. Even if Nicole wants to show all the fun she had at the desert fest, nothing can pardon the fact that she was attending a neon-themed party at Coachella wearing nude shorts and crochet cardigan combo. If she was not the Pussycat Dolls lead, she would have been kicked out of the party. Debunking a dress code is rude but it would still be okay if she would look good in the party. We can’t say she did. Bordering mediocrity in paperbag shorts and fringed vests, she looked like she would rather use a good bed rest.
