What Were the Year's Biggest Fashion Disasters?

12/28/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

We’ve come to expect certain stars to always look good. But, no one — the normally flawless Beyonce included — is mis-step free. Every celebrity suffers from moments that make us wonder, “What were they thinking?” It pains us to see any star who is typically well-coifed and sumptuously attired go wrong — and Beyonce is only the tip of the iceberg. As we reflect back on the past year in style, we called out the year’s most headscratching moments. Starting with Beyonce and her unfortunate Barbarella-inspired getup, we count them down in our year-end Top 5 “What Were They Thinking” gallery. Tell us: What did you think was the biggest fashion faux-pas of the year?

I wouldn’t be caught in that outfit!!! Yikes!!!

i think jlo’s silver head wrap with the matching dress was pretty bad!

KT from Cda on

This is bad but no the worse. Brit’s barely there black doily takes the cake. She is so trashy.

i am a HUGE beyonce fan and i think that she is absolutely gorgeous! however, this outfit/hair is definetley not attractive!!! the important thing is that she looks confident and healthy, which to me is more beautiful than any outfit. that picture of eva mendes, on the other hand is terribly- she looks totally unhappy and uncomfortable in that disasterous updo and stiff edwardian nightmare!

Beyonce’s getup was pretty bad, but I think Mischa’s diaper shorts were the worst thing I’ve seen in a long time!

NOTHING can be AS BAD AS……….

“Opps, I did it again, I forgot to put on my thong.”
(or underwear)

Britney is a disaster!

Beyonce is fine she WILL recover UNLIKE some morons!

1.act you´re age.
2.fire your stylist,(that´s you´re real enemies not the paparazzis)
3.look in the mirror before you go out.
4.sometimes less is more don´t over do it with accesories,hair, make up…

OK, am I the only one who saw Selma Blair’s new haircut? The diaper shorts were god-awful, and Beyonce did stumble a bit, don’t get me wrong, but that HAIR! A publicity stunt for sure, but it’s just hideous.

Misty on

Britney Spears was an entire fashion disaster, the entire year. I agree, Mischa’s diaper shorts were pretty awful also. But Brit takes the cake….she needs to learn how to cover up.
