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?

ok… I think people are overdueing the whole brit.. (no panties) situation.. People choose not to wear underwear becuase they might be more comforable that way.. whatever her excuse is thats fine with me because its her body and she should be able to make the decision for herself.. seems like people are just looking for any little thing to pin on her and i think they should lay off of her for a while.. I mean, she deserves to have fun and enjoy her life but what people are turning it into is way more than what it should be..Beyonce??? thats my girl… I’m a huge fan and yes that hair was a bit much but hey.. that reflects on her style.. if she was comfortable with it then hey!! yo go girl!!!

I love how you all get so defensive over the comments of your fav stars. You act like you know them personally. Well, you don’t! We are all allowed are own comments. And besides, it’s not like these stars are going to read them anyways. You can tell b/c they are still dressing bad.

Britney’s look in her interview with Matt Lauer was absolutely hideous…..the hair, the outfit, the fake eyelashes and that gum…..Eww!

In the words of the great Dolly Parton,
“It costs a lot to look this cheap!”

At least Dolly admits it, whereas Beyonce does not!

I really hated this outfit that Gwen Stefani wore which consisted of brown leather short shorts and white stockings. Why does she hike her shorts up to her chest lately? Yikes. And Christina Aguilera needs to get out of the time machine and rejoin the rest of us. Hopefully 2007 will usher in a more modern look for her. Let’s see, who else, (I feel like Joan Rivers ova hea!

J.LO: If you’re pregnant, congrats, if not, stop dressing like you are
Beyonce: Dreamgirl better wake up and dress more sophisticated
Vanessa Minillo: just which beauty pageant are you in?
Britney: TOO EASY

I’ll keep:
Katie Holmes: love her look lately, she’s a wife and mom, she’s not Joey anymore. Kudos to her classy looks!
Jennifer Aninston: the best revenge is looking good!
Christie Brinkley: Ditto! And girl, you are ageless!
Jessica Simpson: how’d she get on this list??? It must be the shoes! I love this girl’s shoes and bags, clothes are so so but gotta have those shoes!

Oh yeah, and Britney has been pretty awful this year, what with her t!ts hanging out at all ends. Get a bra. And some panties!

This isn’t that bad I have seen other celebrity’s look worst but when it’s someone of another ethnic background people tend to be outraged. At least she’s never been caught without her panties like The Slut BRITNEY! Speaking of Britney doesn’t she have kids why is she never with them any more. K-FED needs to take custody maybe that will wake her up! Lets face it, it doesnt matter who these kids stay with they’re screwed!lol

the girl next door on

i think b need to fire her mom and dress her self
