2. Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton —

This marriage has not produced any gorgeous red carpet results, so adding this to the list was a no-brainer… Because it didn’t take any brain cells to put together this double-atrocity.

3. Zoe Saldana —

The Star Trek star normally dazzles on the red carpet but unfortunately her outfit fizzles and fails to impress. She appears to look more like a member of a wedding reception than a potential Oscars Award nominee.

4. Jane Fonda —

You may not be able to read this because Jane Fonda’s outfit is currently blinding you. There is a positive to this aging actress’s outfit—it is powerful enough to solar power all of Hollywood.

5. Octavia Spencer —

The first-time Oscars Award winner may have split cinephiles’ sides in The Help, but it looks like she needs some assistance in choosing a better designer than Tadashi Shoji.

6. Melissa McCarthy —

The CBS funny lady proved that her improv game is on point during the 85th Academy Awards show. Sadly, her red carpet outfit looks more H&M than David Meister.

7. Renee Zellweger —

While walking down the famed red carpet, Ms. Zellweger probably thought to herself, “I have them all at ‘hello’.” Instead, we’re saying “goodbye” to this golden monstrosity.

8. Fan Bingbing —

According to her appearances on the red carpet, movie premiere and fashion shows, the media describes her as a fashion icon. To us, she looked like she hopped out of a Crayola Crayon box.

9. Sandra Bullock —

Dressing like you’re attending a funeral instead of a prestigious award ceremony is probably the reason why the The Blind Side star hasn’t been nominated since.

10. Naomi Watts —

Looking more like she’s attending a Battlestar Galactica gala than the 85th Academy Awards, Naomi Watts should thank her designer, ET, for making it look so dreadfully out-of-this-world.

11. Kristen Stewart —

There’s always something off about the Twilight star, but even worst is this Reem Acra outfit that makes her look disproportionate in all the wrong places.

12. Brandi Glanville —

Whoever decides that a reality TV star should be allowed access onto the hallowed red carpet must’ve thought that Housewives Brandi Glanville was Naomi Watts.

13. Shaun Robinson —

The Access Hollywood reporter managed to walk the red carpet and dress younger than Quvenzhané Wallis. Quite a feat, Ms. Robinson!

14. Norah Jones —

The next time you’re driving to or from work, look down and tell us if those floor mats in your car don’t look like the material that Norah Jones’ dress is made out of.
