While the rest of us are getting our summer wardrobes together, it seems the warm weather vibe has stalled on the celebrity front. A few stars have tried out some looks that reflect the summer season, but they clearly have their heads in the sand, because their outfits aren’t cutting it. Who made this week’s list of style setbacks?
We don’t even want to go into the hair. There just aren’t enough hours in the 24/7 news cycle to discuss the half-shaved pink-and-lime studded business sprouting from Avril Lavigne‘s scalp at her Abbey Dawn fashion show in New York last night. Plus we don’t want to have to admit that we kind of like it. What we don’t like, however, is the greasy conjunctivitis-chic Avril chose to smear around her peepers. We guess you’d call it a smokey eye, in as much as our eyes started billowing smoke the second we looked at it. While we’d argue that Avril’s hotness still manages to shine through, that is not the case with these other makeup disasters…

We’d like to save the best for last, so we’re going to start with who didn’t hit the mark at last night’s Tribeca Ball in New York. The event was honoring Robert de Niro, FYI, and was held at the New York Academy of Art. We’ll start with Solange Knowles on the left. Love the coral lips and print blouse, but not exactly loving those high-waisted, shiny trousers. Taking “shiny” to a whole new level is Carla Gugino, in the middle. She’s such a beautiful woman, but that bouffant hair is all wrong, especially when paired with that red, satin dress. We get she was trying to go retro, but couldn’t get it right. Then there’s Paz de la Huerta on the right. We don’t even know what to say, or where to begin. Just … NO.
We’re moving on to the meh pile next, which comprises Padma Lakshmi and Helena Christensen. To see what they wore, and what we have to say, click after the jump. The best dressed lot also awaits you! Read more…
Paz De La Huerta has never been one to care what other people think; we all know that. That being said, her new Terry Richardson portraits sort of make us want to rinse our eyes out with hand sanitizer. Now, we know it’s not possible to pose for Uncle Terry without looking a little grimy; the man gets paid big money to make his subjects look like he just surprised them on the toilet. But at least Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga didn’t voluntarily sprawl topless on a dirty park bench for a series of NSFW photos. Get up offa there! There is probably broken class all over that bench! We meant to write “broken glass,” but the typo seemed even more accurate so we are keeping it!
In yet another NSFW photo, Paz smooshes her bare chest onto a store front window. Someone owns that window, Paz, and she or he has to clean it! They don’t need your boob leavings all over it! Girl, you are costarring in the upcoming film 4:44 Last Day on Earth with Willem Dafoe after getting canned from Boardwalk Empire and everyone knows you have a killer body. No need to give yourself ringworm to prove anything, particularly not to us.

Just like her eyes and mouth will occasionally disappear off her face on the red carpet, TVLine reports that model and actress Paz de la Huerta will soon be disappearing from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Despite her extremely convincing turn as Steve Buscemi‘s slightly unstable mistress Lucy Danziger, Paz reportedly did not get her contract renewed for the period drama’s third season. Good luck finding another actress who will commit to that much high-caliber nude acting, you guys, because she does not exist.
We’re not really that surprised by the news; if you watch the show (or don’t mind a spoiler!), you know that the end of season two featured Lucy walking out on her newborn child. We imagine it’s … sort of hard for a character to come back after that. Luckily, Paz has a number of upcoming film projects this year, including a role in Malin Akerman‘s Linda Lovelace movie, Inferno. Thank goodness. The idea of Paz’s lavender lips disappearing from the Golden Globes altogether chills us to the bones.

2011 brought along with it a host of new fashion trends, from long-sleeved gowns to daytime sequins to the ever-unfortunate mullet dress. The biggest trend of all, however, seems to have been stars looking like a volcanically hot mess. Yes, like a single strand of pearls or a little black dress, celebrities sashaying down the red carpet in cringe-inducing couture never gets old. After all, these are people who all have stylists. Who they pay real money. To make them look good. We know.
Without further ado, check out our Worst-Dressed Stars of 2011 gallery then vote on your favorite misguided celebs. Will it be Paz de la Huerta or Nicki Minaj? Katy Perry or Courtney Stodden? Lady Gaga or Snooki? As long as famous people continue to have little to no taste, we’ll all be winners here.
While the 2011 Emmy Best Dressed list might contain some undeniably gorgeous ensembles, the Emmy Worst Dressed List is equally long and illustrious. From Gwyneth Paltrow‘s midriff-baring goth prom dress to Paz de la Huerta‘s lavender lip gloss and runaway weave to James Woods‘ apparent Botox overdose, the stars were getting hot and sloppy at the 63rd Annual Emmy Awards. The question, of course, is: who was the hottest and the sloppiest?
Taking a short break from making brownish maroon lipstick seem like a reasonable fashion choice, earlier today Paz de la Huerta plead guilty to harassment of The City star Samantha Swetra. The charge stems from an incident back in March at a Manhattan hotel bar, where the Boardwalk Empire actress punched and threw a glass at the former reality star during an argument over whether Swetra should be technically considered a real actress: a conversation that, while important, typically shouldn’t result in a gushing nose bleed.
De la Huerta still has to reckon with a civil suit from Swetra, who’s lawyer Stephanie Ovadia said they would “pursue the case vigorously.” Part of Paz’s plea deal entails performing a day of community service and twelve weeks of alcohol counseling. “I’m extremely glad this is over,” Paz said after leaving court, hopefully to never, ever run into a Kardashian in real life.
OK, we know the article of clothing known as “jeggings” has gotten some serious flack. It’s definitely a tough look to pull off. But we gotta say, jeggings don’t look half bad on Paz de la Huerta. Is it just us? The Boardwalk Empire star rocked the risky fashion choice at the premiere of The Devil’s Double in New York City on Monday. Paz went into pin-up mode as she hit the red carpet, proving that she has what it takes to enter the cele-booty pantheon along with Kim Kardashian and J-Lo. We never thought we’d say this, but check the gallery below for more of the hottie in the jeggings!
We know that the word “fifi” doesn’t really inspire sex appeal, but the Fifi Awards are a pretty big deal, whether or not they sound frou-frou—this annual show is one of the most prestigious events of the fragrance industry. Halle Berry took at up a notch at the 2011 awards, yesterday in NYC, wearing an incredibly sexy asymmetrical cut-out dress by Halston with Christian Louboutin heels! Halle won the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year award for her scent “Reveal”, as well. So she dressed in honor of its name? Because this is pretty “reveal-ing”, no?
Don’t mind if we sound jealous. We aren’t really. We’re actually in awe of that stomach! And the rest of that body, for that matter. Halle was in good company at the show with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Fergie, Kate Walsh and Padma Lakshmi around, and we have to say, everyone was spiffily dressed. Fergie especially, in a flowing canary yellow BCBG Max Azria Atelier gown with a turquoise clutch. She won New Fragrance Celebrity of the Year Award for her perfume “Outspoken”. We don’t know why Paz de la Huerta decided to wear no make-up and scowl throughout, so we’re just going to focus on Mary’s awesome Gucci dress. Take a look at the pictures below and give us your verdict.
