Celebrities always seem to look awesome, except when they don’t. Clearly having a team of professional stylists on hand and a wardrobe that almost never repeats itself is not a foolproof system for looking great. It certainly wasn’t enough to keep these famous faces from donning some very hideous outfits. Even stars like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian may occasionally push at the fashion boundaries a little too much.
Here are some photos that show what happens when ugly outfits happen to lovely people.
Even the couch that was sacrificed to make this dress knew it was ugly. The dress knows it’s ugly. Does Kim know? With the relentless and unforgiving nature of the pattern, and the matching, harsh middle part, plus the high reaching collar that makes her head look like a potato sitting atop an uprighted sofa, Kim looks strict, matronly, inflated, and unflattered.
When Kim Kardashian was pregnant with North, she forced herself into designer dresses that haven’t been created with the pregnant body in mind. Here she is in her $3,000 blush-colored Lanvin dress. She did not look good.
Icelandic singer Björk, who ruffled many a feather at the 73rd annual Academy Awards with her frothy swan gown.
Yes, really. A four-legged pink horse. This can officially be labelled a ‘new low’. But at least Katie Price isn’t baring her breasts this time.
Ke$ha is a classic shock factor star, but even shock factor can be attractive… just not here. The sneaky pink bustier peeks out from under what we would guess is her grandfather’s golfing button-up, and then (what we would guess is) her mother’s ‘casual stroll in the park with the gal-pals’ jacket, with matching (fake) pastel braids, and gaudy, 25-cent-box jewelry.
Ke$ha looked like her back garden threw up on her with an ensemble ENTIRELY covered in flower petals, and it’s making us wish spring was over ASAP.
Justin Bieber can’t possibly have seen A Clockwork Orange, so we’re not quite sure how he concocted this outfit… or why he continues to wear elongated, zippered shirts that resemble dresses.
Ciara took things to the next level, donning an all-white space-like number from Givenchy’s Spring 2013 Menswear Collection.
Demi Lovato was seen boop-boop-a-dooping in a baffling outfit. Wearing her signature black hat, Demi paired a black dress with cut out stripe embellishments and a pink Betty Boop jean jacket by Topshop along with black ankle boots with spikes all around the cuff for her shopping trip.
Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea didn’t look too “fancy” in this eyesore-inducing ensemble that featured a parachute-inspired jacket, matching pale-peach shorts, and tacky, tightly laced heeled boots. Needless to say, the 24-year-old would have “one less problem” were she to wisen up and fire her stylist.
Later, Iggy put her toned tummy on display while performing in a garish crop top and curve-hugging leggings. We realize Ms. Azalea has only been on the scene for a little over a year, but we’re already over her signature “style.”
Ivana Trump did not seem to care that her all-encompassing green and brown fur wrap resembled Sigmund the Sea Monster.
At one time she was an in-demand model, who was happy to show off her figure at the drop of a hat. But these days Jade Jagger is keener on covering up and it seems she will not stop until she is completely swamped in fabric. Wearing a belt wasn’t enough from saving the unflattering frumpy gold dress from being too much.
There are 10 things we hate about Julia Stiles dress… It’s hideous x10!
Twilight alum Kristen Stewart recently reemerged to promote her new flick, Camp X-Ray, at the Soho Apple store in leather lederhosen and a tweed top courtesy of Chanel. Let’s just hope she was heading to an Oktoberfest party following the press conference.
Here’s Lady Gaga unsuccessfully attempting to rock her latest gag-inducing wig while out and about in NYC. Enough already.
Lady Gaga Bubble Machine Dress
Lady Gaga didn’t disappoint her London fans as she stepped out in a white mini dress made up of bubble blowing machines. The 27-year-old singer left a trail of bubbles in her wake as she tottered down a Camden street in vertiginous platform heels.
Lady Gaga Meat Dress
Who can forget this one?
Perhaps TV mastermind Ryan Murphy should consider casting former Voice contestant Melanie Martinez in an upcoming episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe opted for a homeless-chic ensemble for the New York premiere of Dracula Untold. Losing his religion, or losing his mind?

Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice
Were Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie inspired by Cinderella’s ugly stepsisters?
Power-clashing queen Rita Ora was photographed out and about the other evening in this eccentric getup that featured a medley of prints that must have come from the sale bin at Mood. Too bad she can’t “make it work.”
A few days later, the pop star left little to the imagination in a plunging blouse and chain-link skirt at a Kate Moss-hosted soiree in London. Cheers?

What was Mad Men star Christina Hendricks thinking when she mistakenly decided to don this mustard-hued mess? And don’t get us started on those terrible trousers.
Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood could give TOWIE‘s Nanny Pat a run for her money…
Helena Bonham Carter
Helena Bonham Carter looks like she’s scared of her own ensemble. We wouldn’t want to meet her down a dark alley.
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler popped a pose in yet another one of his quirky ensembles upon arriving at the re-opening of the Stella McCartney flagship store in Milan. The 66-year-old rocker — who has never shied away from questionable couture — paired his layered, caftan-like look with a multitude of necklaces and a big bushy grin. He may be smiling, but we’re not quite sure he’s stylin’.
Now this outfit would’ve been fine if not for that tacky clear raincoat imitating coat. It’s just all types of WRONG!
We love the Olsens, but this ‘vintage dress’ isn’t doing anything for us. Actually, yes it is, it’s hurting us.
Color us shocked: Malibu Barbie is real!
You are what you eat, and Amanda Peet is clearly her multi-tiered wedding cake.
There is nothing in this world that can even begin to explain what made Julianne Moore think this choice was acceptable… and look at her toes!
Flannel around the waist? See-through top? Long pendant? Did someone dig up a time capsule from 1992? Dimitrios Kambouris
Oh, Madonna. She really should have chosen to wear pants!
LeAnn was trying desperately to class things up. Too bad her green caped dress reminds us of a mullet.
Can someone do us a favor and look up the antonym of body-conscious?
C’mon Tyra, you’re the host of America’s Next Top Model. You should know this by now! Fishnet stockings are meant to be worn on your legs darling. No, not your face.
Miley Cyrus tries a little too hard. She’s a pretty girl. If she just stopped wearing such ugly fringed boots and torn tights, she’d be ok.
If Diane is wearing this, does that mean Joshua Jackson is wearing a red carpet dress?
Katy Perry needs to get her outfit checked.
Clearly, these celebs have been struck by a case of anti-fashion behavioral order. What do you think? Are there any other celebrities who need to fire their stylists? Share these fashion faux pas with others below!
