10 Worst Dressed Celebrities of 2012

Due to your awesome response to yesterday’s article on best dressed celebrities and your interest in reading about the worst dressed celebrities, here we present to you the article you wanted to read most.

One of you mentioned this in your email, “Don’t the celebrities’ outfits sometimes make you stop to wonder ‘what on earth were they thinking’?” Well, yes, we feel the same when celebrities go wrong with fashion. The worst part is that they are hardly ever given the space to forget their fashion faux pas because once a fashion disaster is created it goes down in history as Hollywood’s fashion misses.

What we have lined up for you today are the worst dressed celebrities in 2012. We have picked up outfits by those celebrities who manage to go wrong almost every time and even those who have faltered only on a few occasions. So if you are looking for something to educate yourself on what not to wear and lighten your mood at the same time, then this is the best place to be.

10. Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer Goodwin is always dressed up so well in all the movies she stars in; it makes us wonder what happens to her outside the movies. Guess that is the extent to which a professional stylist can influence your look.  Do you think that Ginnifer has no mirror in her home and therefore cannot judge how good or bad she looks before stepping out? Or do you think it’s just her fashion sense that makes her falter most of the times?

9. Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is one celebrity who can easily swing between the best dressed and the worst dressed celebrities of 2012 (don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post where she features in the best dressed celebs list). There is no denying that Kim sure knows how to flaunt her curves, but when this girl goes wrong, she really goes disastrously wrong and you can see that for yourself.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

8. Miley Cyrus

We could get a little dicey about Miley Cyrus because this wild singer has given us some really fashionably memorable outfits in the past. However, once she lost her precious locks to the scissors, the singer seems to have lost her sense of fashion as well. The outfits that she wears to her performances are the latest topic of controversy of Miley’s life.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

7. Mariah Carey

What seems up with Mariah Carey lately? The singer no longer possesses her earlier charm and fashion sense that made us fall in love with her when she rose to fame. It looks like Mariah is content with the number of fans she already has and doesn’t want to increase her fan-base based on her style.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

6. Demi Lovato

The problem with Demi Lovato is that she doesn’t dress up appropriately for her age. She manages to either look like a tiny tot or at times like an old lady. And for the times that she tries to look youthful, she goes wrong with it. It’s the choice of colors, patterns, hairdos and accessories that she messes up with.

5. Tilda Swinton

If you take one good look at Tilda Swinton, you can tell this actress is indeed a very pretty lady; however, she always opts for pale outfits, making her entire appearance look rather pale. Her beauty is hardly enhanced with the pale, dull, boring and ill-fitting clothes that she opts for and this is what works against her.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

4. Britney Spears

The worst possible outfits hit this baby all the time. Whether it is what she wears on stage for her performances, on the red carpet, on reality shows or in public, Britney sure needs some serious fashion tutoring to avoid creating blunders time and again.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

3. Rihanna

Rihanna’s outfits can sometimes get as controversial as her love life. Although Rihanna manages to charm us at times with her ensemble, she does give us quite a few ridiculous moments with hideous patterns, wrong color combinations and totally wrong choice of outfits. And the worst part is that Rihanna manages to go wrong even with her accessories and while on stage, her undergarments are on display 90% of the time.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

2. Nicky Minaj

Nicky Minaj is dressed for Halloween all through the year. We wonder if this singer is trying to catch up to Lady Gaga’s level. Well, that doesn’t concern us much. What does concern us is that Nicky Minaj really does have quite a creative sense of visualization to come up with the most hideous outfits and the confidence to strut about in public dressed in them.

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

1. Lady Gaga

There are some celebrities who manage to go beyond every level of human imagination and reach another world and no other celebrity manages to get as outrageous with their outfits as Lady Gaga does. A picture is worth a thousand words and with so many pictures of Lady Gaga and her disastrous fashion sense, need we say anything more?

Worst Dressed Celebrities 2012

It is true that celebrities cannot really afford to go wrong with fashion because their work revolves around fashion, but as humans tend to err, we’ve got to forgive them for their fashion errors. However, we would really love it if all our celebrities undertook a tutorial on how to dress well, for their own good.

10 Best Dressed Celebrities of 2012

2012 saw fashion’s highest highs and lowest lows; there were a series of hits and a series of misses and while some celebrities amazed us, some committed the worst fashion faux pas.

So who were these fabulous celebrities who captivated us in 2012 with their fashion sense? Who gave us a series of memorable hits and who inspired us to find our inner divas and walk out into the world wearing the best of clothes? Let’s take a look and find out.

Counting down to the top 10 best dressed celebrities of 2012, enjoy!

10. Miranda Kerr

No we aren’t talking of the best dressed celebrities in lingerie. If you keep aside Miranda Kerr’s Victoria’s Secret angel status and stop thinking about her million dollar bra, you can see Miranda for what she is – a good dresser.

Best Dressed Celebrities

Models do have a natural penchant for fashion and Miranda is always well dressed whether she takes to the street, goes out shopping or graces the red carpet. Her dresses, casual wear and accessories are to die for. She is one celebrity who certainly knows how to work up a great look for any occasion.

9. Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo effortlessly exhibits grace in everything she wears. You could pick up any piece of clothing and give it to this pretty girl and be sure she will transform it to come up with a great and fashionable look. And the best part about Olivia’s look is that this lovely lady sure knows how to accessorize well and you will see her amazing fashion sense manifest through her shoes, bags, clutches and jewelry.

Best Dressed Celebrities

8. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez’s high profile personal life being played in public can stretch a bit too far at times, but Selena sure does have a closet filled with awesome goodies. Not only does this girl have a great skill at singing and acting, but she also has a great fashion sense.

Best Dressed Celebrities

Selena knows well what is supposed to be worn where and that’s why she always manages to catch our eyes everywhere she goes (besides Justin Bieber of course).

7. Kristen Stewart

Kristen surely has given us some memorable fashion faux pas in the last few months with her obsession for sheer fabrics, but you can’t deny the fact that she knows how to dress well. Although it does seem like Kristen pulls off a great ensemble only when she is in the mood to do so, she does it nevertheless and manages to come up with something fabulous most of the time.

Best Dressed Celebrities

6. Reese Witherspoon

If we had to define Reese’s fashion sense in a few words it would be graceful, cute, trendy, youthful and sparky.

Best Dressed Celebrities

Reese knows how to turn on the charm with anything she wears, so much so that even when the actress was pregnant lately, she didn’t use it as an excuse to step out dressed in anything she could lay her hands on.

5. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow is best known for her amazing red carpet appearances, but this star sizzles even when she is not dressed for the red carpet. She keeps it simple and that’s what works for this beauty each and every time.

Best Dressed Celebrities

4. Angelina Jolie

Is there any best dressed or best looks or most beautiful or the sexiest list that Angelina Jolie doesn’t make it to? Never! And we’re sure you’re not surprised with her appearance on this list too. It’s not that people who make these lists are fixated with Angelina, but it is just that this star always gives us a million reasons to include her on these lists.

Best Dressed Celebrities

And this time again, Angelina’s clothes and fashion sense bring her to our list of the best dressed celebrities of 2012.

3. Kim Kardashian

Although Kim could get pretty controversial at times (with her clothes too), but it is her very clothes that we love (hate sometimes). Kim could tutor curvy women on how to dress to flatter your body and she would rock at it, just as she rocks in everything that she wears.

Best Dressed Celebrities

2. Emma Stone

Emma Stone hardly goes unnoticed these days and it’s not only for her acting skills or the number of movies in her kitty, but it is also because of the way this beauty dresses up. Casuals, formals, evening gowns and cocktail dresses; Emma confidently carries herself in everything and that’s probably what adds to her look.

Best Dressed Celebrities

1. Kate Middleton

And the Duchess of Cambridge is finally here. Ever since Kate Middleton has come into the limelight pre and post her royal marriage, there are many women all over the world who have fallen in love with her clothes. The Duchess seems naturally gifted with a royal fashion sense and she effortlessly brings grace, poise, beauty and zing to everything she wears. Her dresses, shoes, clutches, gowns and even her casual wear are always complete with a touch of royalty. We really hope that we could win free passes to the Duchess’ closet someday.

Best Dressed Celebrities We have got to hand it over to some of our celebrities for putting so much effort and thought into each and every look of theirs and coming up with something fabulous each time. We wonder if some of these are naturally gifted with an amazing fashion sense or is there a prescribed book from where they pick these tips up? We’d love to have both!
