Do you ever look back at a picture that one of your friends posts of you on Facebook and think, “Hmmm, I wasn’t exactly at the top of my game that night?” Well, when these eight celebs Google themselves in the morning, that’s pretty much exactly what they’ll be thinking about the 2011 Oscars. We’re not going to go as far as to call them the night’s worst dressed stars, exactly, but we’ll say this: James Franco, Fran Lebowtiz, Javier Bardem, Florence Welch, Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Williams, Russell Brand and Emma Roberts, step your game up! #tryharder
Remember when Demi Moore shocked the world by posing pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair? Yeah, well, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak’s appearance on the cover of this week’s Life & Style is pretty much nothing like that.
For starters, Demi Moore’s iconic photograph pushed the boundaries of how we, as a society, viewed female stars of stage and screen. While movie stars of the feminine persuasion used to literally go into hiding when they got pregnant, Demi and photographer Annie Leibovitz’s decision to put Moore’s swollen belly on the cover—hi there, Rumer!—made a bold statement not only about the beauty of the female form, but also about the traditional ways in which the bodies of female celebrities were objectified. Kim Zolciak, on the other hand, decided to don an ill-fitting pink bra and a pair of see-through lace panties as a fairly transparent way to land herself on the cover of Life & Style (not to mention a Hall of Fame spot in the pregnancy wing of Awkward Family Photos). This makes her RHoA castmate Phaedra Parks’s decision to deep throat a pickle while pregnant look positively resplendent in comparison!
Despite the seven plus years since The Simple Life—and her sex tape, One Night In Paris—made Paris Hilton into a bonafide star, it’s hard to believe the socialite is 30 years old. Sure, she’s been around long enough, with plenty of romances (and multiple engagements) under her belt, but thanks to an endless supply of trashy outfits, it’s hard to think of her as…well, an adult. Now that old reality pal Nicole Richie is a mother of two and World According To Paris co-star Brooke Mueller best known for having kids with Charlie Sheen, it might not be long before Paris starts a family of her own (she certainly seems happy with boyfriend Cy Waits). Say goodbye to Paris’ twenties by checking out some of the most age-inappropriate outfits she’s ever worn out. And we mean worn out.

Blake Lively may have brought the gown, but she wasn’t the belle of Elle UK’s Style Awards last night. Lively got a little too fashion-forward on the red carpet, with so much blue fabric pouring out of the front of her top that the Gossip Girl‘s outfit looked like flimsy maternity wear. Emma Watson had no such problem, wearing a short pink dress from Hakaan that hopefully reminded Blake that cut-outs should be flattering, not random (also, there’s “leggy” and then there’s a giant gap between the folds of your dress). Blake better hope Green Lantern is a hit—she can’t just assume she’ll be the ingenue anymore.
Get a closer look at both dresses in the gallery below.

Hey, look, it’s Jared Leto, off to buy a Valentine’s Day card for his poncho. We first spotted Leto wearing the winter wear at NYLON’s party for cover girl Leighton Meester, and he wore it all the way through the G-Star Raw Fashion Show Saturday night. Now the guy’s bopping around the Bowery in the middle of the day wearing this thing (and red sunglasses, naturally), looking like some futuristic Arctic traveler as he marches over what’s left of NYC’s dirty piles of snow. You just know he’ll be sad when it’s finally too warm for him to wear the thing.

The Hollywood award train isn’t going to stop just because of a little thing like the Grammys! The American Society Of Cinematographers threw a gala for Julia Roberts last night, giving her their annual Governors Award for helping to advance the arts or whatever (personally, we think the cinematographers were honoring her for marrying cameraman Danny Moder). Apparently being outshone by the music industry got to Julia a little, as she decided to try and get away with basically wearing a sailor suit sans jacket. Nice one, Julia! Way to look exactly like Robert Hays in the disco scene of Airplane!
See photos of Julia getting her groove on with presenter Tom Hanks in the gallery below. Hey, didn’t Julia give Tom a trophy from the American Cinematheque less than two years ago? That’s how it is in Hollywood: you award my back, I’ll award yours.

This year’s Grammy Awards were very good to Lady Antebellum and Arcade Fire (winners of Song/Record of the Year and Album Of The Year, respectively). They were not, however, quite as good to the ten people that you’ll see below. Whereas the likes of Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez scored high in our gallery of the Top 15 Sexiest Grammy Awards outfits, we had some reservations about some of the fashion choices made by Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson, Cee Lo Green, Lenny Kravitz and more this evening. Sure, some of these outfits weren’t meant to be taken seriously (hi Cee Lo!), but they still had us scratching our heads and asking ourselves, “WTF?!?”

We’ve grown to expect celebs to take fashion risks at the Grammy Awards. It seems no rules apply — human-sized eggs, leopard bodysuits and waist-high slits welcome. This year was no exception. Some of the music industry’s most popular artists, from Rihanna to Ciara to Katy Perry, were sporting ensembles ranging from revealing and sexy to over-the-line skanky (Miley Cyrus’ side boob and accompanying dreamcatcher tattoo). Check out plenty of celebrity skin and lots of trademark Grammy goofy below. [Photos: Getty Images]
Leona Lewis is not having a good week, sartorially speaking. Wednesday Lewis showed up at Essence‘s 2nd Annual Black Women In Music Reception wearing some kind of bright yellow Minnie Mouse bow as a shirt, already having worn giant lips over her breasts at the premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never the day before. Last night she took a chance on yet another unflattering top and the payoff was more sports bra than sex pot.
Lewis attended the “Unforgettable Evening” Benefit for EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund and, while the event was for a great cause, we’re completely confused once again by what the hell she was thinking wearing this Lycra-as-formalwear ensemble. Girl, do you need us to call Rachel Zoe for you? ‘Cause you need lesson in how best to flatter what God gave you, and you can’t do it alone.

There’s never a shortage of attention getting outfits when the Black Eyed Peas throw a party.Taboo did his part for the home team at the 7th Annual Peapod Benefit Concert, ingeniously incorporating his memoir (on sale now!) as an accessory to his Rhythm-Nation-meets-matador ensemble. But Ciara won the night with a dress both more subtle and not, featuring parallel holes cut out of her side of the slinky, skin-tight number. It’s an optical illusion: are snakes are going to eat her boobs, or is her dress shaped an alien’s head?
See the other stars who attended (including rehab vets Bobby Brown and David Arquette!) in the gallery below.
