We have mixed feelings about clogs being back. Can they really be rocked, or should they remain part of Dutch folklore? Actress Jessica Szohr makes a great case for clunky shoes at the screening of Twelve in New York, but we remain somewhat unconvinced.

Edible Attire

Sure, we love the lady, but do not try this at home kids! The carcass couture Lady Gaga sported to the MTV Video Music Awards definitely deserves a warning label. While her extreme ensemble prompted other celebrities to follow suit (Ellen DeGeneres offered her an animal-friendly vegetable bikini), this stinky style should be kept in the freezer. (Unless you're Lady Gaga, of course.)

Fluorescent Faux Fur

One of the best ways to make a classy piece look cheap is by dying it fluorescent. Fashion designer Cecilia Cassini sports this over-sized, bright dress at New York's Fashion Week, making us wish she'd gone with boring, basic black instead.

Printed Pants

Model Naomi Campbell looks like she grabbed a bunch of household items and put together one train wreck of an outfit. While it's hard to find any part of this look forgivable, some elements are more offensive than others. The wrong print on a pair of pants can look like you tore down your living room curtains a la Scarlet O'Hara and refashioned them for your wardrobe.

Oversized Ponchos

We love a poncho now and then, especially if it's a Louis Vuitton. Yum! However. We can all agree that too-big knits in public can easily turn your look from homey to homely. British pop singer Lily Allen looks like she'd be much more comfortable on her living room couch.

Thick Bangs

While bangs are definitely back, like ponchos, they can cover up too much if done the wrong way. You can barely see actress Jada Pinkett Smith's eyes through the black drape over her face.

Raccoon Eyes

Easy on the eyeliner, Taylor! There's a fine line between smoky and raccoon eyes. Actress Taylor Momsen is a pretty girl, so why is she going with the footballer look?

Parachute Pants

These pants may be useful if you're trying to escape from a burning building, but when it comes to flattering the female physique parachute pants fall flat. J. Lo looks more like a South American gaucho in this photo than a sexy diva from the Bronx.

Shoulder Pads

Welsh singer songwriter Marina Diamandis certainly doesn't hit the right note with this outfit. Reminiscent of the late Michael Jackson's stage costumes, this top takes shoulder pads to another level — one she should never revisit.

Embellished Hips:

Leona Lewis, another pop star from across the pond, isn't striking the right tone either with this black dress, which exaggerates all aspects of the female form, especially in the hips.

Feather Overload

Feathers in a fashion spread? Sure. A plumed headband? Love it. But with this ensemble, DJ and model Leigh Lezark proves that there is such a thing as more is less. While feathers can take an outfit from plain to posh, too many overshadow the entire look.
