2012 is almost at its fag end. And now that we are past the doomsday conspiracy theories, we can concentrate on some serious fashion. So who were the worst dressed celebrities of the year that is about to end? This question brings us to surprising answers this year. This is because some of the most hideous red carpet dresses were worn by the popular fashionistas.
Both Bollywood and Hollywood had their set of worst dressed celebrities. We spotted quite a few fashion mistakes in the red carpet dresses worn to award functions like Oscars, Emmy's and Cannes. We also spotted some terrible saree styles in the Indian award shows like Golden Petals and IIFA.
Some of the celebrities who are mentioned in the worst dressed list have also made it to the best dressed list this year. This shows that most celebs had their good and bad days when it comes to fashion in 2012. Many of the A-listers from Hollywood and Bollywood would like to forget the dresses they wore to the red carpet events this year. While some mature actresses choose the wrong outfits for themselves, there were also some new bees like Parineeti Chopra who made obvious mistakes out of inexperience.
So, these are the worst dressed celebrities of 2012. We have chosen them purely on the basis of these particular outfits and not their hollistic sense of fashion.
Where is the Sonam Kapoor who dazzled us with her style at Cannes 2011? Sonam's vintage style at Cannes 2012 went horribly wrong. This Alexander Mcqueen black lace gown is certainly not flattering our fashion queen.
This is not a frequent name in the worst dressed list. However, this white and red shaded dress with a tail looks fit for a fancy dress competition and not on the red carpet!
Rani Mukherji has her ups and downs when it comes to fashion. But she has put on some weight lately so she has limited choices now. This is certainly the worst boho-kaftan dress worn by any celebrity so far.
Mallika does not believe in leaving anything to imagination. But there is a difference between bold and being improperly dressed. We simply cannot stomach this nude coloured dress that shows most of her bosom.
She is probably the worst dressed bride of the year. We simply cannot agree with Vidya Balan's saree style on her wedding sangeet and mehendi ceremony.
Big Star Awards has many big and small stars in attendance. One such starlet is Payal Rohtagi and she got this beige coloured sequined dress horribly wrong.
It was a nice red dress that Emma Stone wore to the Emmy's this year. If only she could get rid of that huge bow!
We have nothing against Aishwarya Rai's post-pregnancy weight gain. But this midnight blue shimmering gown looks most unflattering on her.
Looks like the crown is slipping from Queen Khan's head. She wears too much makeup these days and her dressing style is becoming weird. Take this clumsy saree style for example.
Sometimes the urge to follow fashion too closely can be dangerous. Neon colours are 'in' but that does not mean a mature actress like Julianne Moore should wear a neon yellow Christian Dior dress like this one.
Weight is not the only problem that Sonakshi Sinha has. She also needs to wear Western clothes with more panache. This multi-coloured dress that she wore at the IFFA awards looks hideous.
It is alright to wear backless gowns as long as you can carry them. This outfit is making Isha look like an overgrown swan!
Kim Kardashian has got into the irritating habit of wearing high boots. But she just went totally overboard with this frilly tail dress!
She is young and inexperienced in the tricks of fashion. That is why, Priyanka Chopra's young cousin had an embarrassing moment when her extremely tight dress burst open from behind.
