The Worst Celebrity Fashions of 2014
Celebrity fashion icons can be a source of style inspiration. They start and carry trends. However, you cannot just blindly follow what they wear. Sometimes those in the public eye, even those who are usually well dressed, get their fashion very wrong. Here is a selection of some of the worst celebrity looks of late, which you should not be caught dead imitating.
If you have not heard about Pharrell’s hat, you must be living under a rock. The sizable Vivienne Westwood hat he wore to the Grammys in January is famous in its own right. It even has its own Twitter account. The one thing it should not have is your allegiance. While there is nothing inherently wrong with hats, there is something wrong with a hat that is literally larger than your head. Such a hat makes it look like the wearer is using his headgear as storage space. Pharrell’s style is usually on point, but this is not a look that you want to copy.
It has not been a good year for poor Pharrell. At the Oscars, he showed up in a tuxedo with shorts instead of pants. Shorts that cut off exactly on the knee, like Pharrell’s, make the wearer appear short and stumpy. As well as being visually unappealing, wearing shorts instead of suit pants is also reminiscent of a private schoolboy. Your hairy calves are not a good accessory for your suit. Keep your formal look classy by always wearing full-length pants.
Actor David Burtka graced the 2014 Met Gala with an eccentric outfit that is not so much ugly as it is confusing. His long, cropped, argyle patterned tuxedo paired with vertically striped trousers is not a look that you should take style inspiration from. While he was not too out of place at the high fashion event, this look should not be tried at home.
There is nothing wrong with a bit of hair color experimentation, but Nick Cannon has gone too far ?(as usual). His ostentatious hairstyle consisted of many dark circles on a bleach-blond base. It looks like a horrible accident, but what’s worse is that it was on purpose. It would take a lot of effort to achieve Cannon’s look, just in case its boundless ugliness was not enough to put you off. You have to hand it to him for originality, but aesthetically, his hairstyle leaves much to be desired.
Jared gets points for being brave enough to wear animal print on his bottom half at the 2014 Coachella music festival. If anyone could make zebra print pants look good, it was going to be him. Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it, especially not with a tartan patterned shirt. His look comes across as very 1970s. If even a celebrity cannot get away with zebra print pants at a low-key festival, then zebra pants should certainly not for civilian use.
