We’ve been talking about cute headbands recently and how much they can add to an outfit. This braided chain headband? Not so much. It looks less like a unique accessory and more like a scalping gone awry. I like it when people say “Cute headband,” not “Oh my god are you bleeding?” Awkward.

This is a $148 designer shirt sold at Anthropologie, but if you told me it was a $5 novelty t-shirt sold at a seaside gift shop, I would totally believe you. Like, maybe the back would say “I took a bite out of Laguna Beach” or whatever, and surfer dudes would wear it to show off their sculpted obliques and kooky sense of style. Either way, it’s confusing. [$148, Anthropologie]
As we look forward to 2012, let us look back — back upon the ladies who faltered, ever-so-slightly, in the sartorial department with bad outfits, poor fabric choices and strange, rhombus-like headwear. Check out our list of (just some of) the worst looks of 2011. (And after the jump, the best red carpet looks of the year!) Keep reading »
Well Jared Leto, try as you might, you’ve made it to 40. That’s not very rock star of you, of course, but here we are — a 40-year-old man wearing sunglasses indoors and strutting around in pleather and sequins like it’s no big deal. It seems, Mr. Leto, that you’re primed to be America’s next Steven Tyler. Can a stint on a popular reality singing show be far behind? Either way, enjoy your special day as only you can – probably by bleaching your hair and decadently drinking bottle upon bottle of Patron. We’ll busy ourselves by looking at your worst fashions.
Dear Jared Leto,
J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My So Called Life.” Your turn as Jordan Catalano — (“Y Kant Jordan Read?,” never forget) — the frustratingly vacant love interest of Angela Chase (remember how darling Claire Danes was before Latisse?) broke a million teenage girl hearts. Which is why I find it especially egregious that you’ve grown up to be the Jared Leto that you are today. The douche-y, guyliner-wearing Jared Leto that fronts MTV2 mainstay band 30 Seconds to Mars and insists on dressing like an utter and complete tool.

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe and then every single pair you’ve produced is going to end up in a landfill somewhere. The phrase is “Earth first,” Converse, not “Hideous sandal/hightop hybrid first, Earth second.” Shame on you. [$40, Converse] Keep reading »
Katherine Heigl, you need to get your business straight, girl. Is this outfit a cry for help? Did you accidentally burn your stylist while you were trying to light your Pall Mall one day? Please tell us. Because if you continue on this way, we see only one terrible thing in your future… Keep reading »
Apparently, when I just walked to the deli to pick up a Diet Coke (the only one I’ve had all day, as I am trying to kick the habit), my outfit — which includes striped leggings tucked into Uggs — communicated to my doorman that I’m a trendy and spendy slut who forgot to put on pants. Oh wait, he knew that already. [I Love Charts] Keep reading »
I can’t really comprehend the thinking behind the Rachel Comey leather socks. You can get athlete’s foot for free from a really nasty locker room, so why would anyone pay $219 for an itchy yeast infection between your toes? [Creatures of Comfort] Keep reading »
Irregular Choice is quite a fitting name for a brand that manufactured the horribleness called the Space Snacks Boot you see above. What’s even funnier is that these atrocious boots are actually OUT OF STOCK. Darn! I really hoped to buy the ugliest boot known to man, but a bunch of people with offensive taste snatched them up before I had a chance. Shucks! [Endless] Keep reading »
