10 Worst Dressed Starlets

10 Worst Dressed Starlets

Some girls try way too hard...and that's how they end up on the Worst Dressed List. As a general rule of thumb, it's never a good idea to dress for the sole purpose of having your picture taken and circulated (I'm looking at you, Christina DeRosa), nor to forgo pants when you're wearing fishnet stockings (Ms. Marsh). Forgive us our loose interpretation of the word 'starlet,' and enjoy our list of the worst red carpet offenders.

10. Christina De Rosa

Christina DeRosa is an actress whose biggest roles thus far have been "Stripper" in two Reno 911 episodes and "Hannah Bendenhall" in Skinemax's softcore porn series Sex Chronicles.Somehow she snagged an invite to the 2008 Emmy Awards and scorched our eyeballs with that toilet paper explosion dress. Other attempts at red carpet fashion have been similarly disappointing.

9. Taylor Momsen

In 2008, Taylor Momsen's stylist decided to start dressing her client exactly like the Jenny Humphrey character Momsen plays on Gossip Girl. While there's nothing particularly wrong with the way little J dresses, the whole kohl-eyed, thigh-baring, razored hair hipster look got a little tired - especially since she rarely stepped out of the house in anything that wasn't black, white, or gray. A 15-year-old should never look this bored.

8. Katy Perry

It's not really fair to call a performer's stage costumes in for critique, but "I Kissed a Girl" singer Katy Perry is almost always in costume. While her cheeky showmanship is somewhat refreshing (if you love being screeched at for several minutes at a time), Gwen Stefani she is not.

7. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus may be growing up (she celebrated her 16th birthday this year!), but she still hasn't learned how to dress her age tastefully. Attempts at high fashion (like the Roberto Cavalli dress she wore to the CMAs) were way too old-looking for the teen star, while her age-appropriate outfits are consistently cheesy.

6. Courtney Love

What to say of dear Courtney that hasn't already been said? She wrote on her MySpace a few weeks ago that she was learning how to cut on the bias and was feeling remarkably creative - she even plans to create some clothing for herself sometime soon. Given her choices of ensembles, we're eager to find out exactly what shenanigans Ms. Love has in mind.

5. Lindsay Lohan

She managed to keep herself out of serious trouble, but failed to produce any noteworthy performances, with the exception of the epic public fights she and girlfriend Sam Ronson reportedly have all the time. Her fashion sense seemed just about as stale as her career - can someone please get her off the fake tanner and the tights?

4. Rihanna

Rihanna somehow lands on a lot of critic's best dressed lists, presumably because she has a killer body that looks good in almost anything. But really, no one should ever wear what Rihanna does. She's very consistent at wearing things that should only exist in one's imagination.

3. Katie Holmes

Since her wedding to Tom Cruise, actress Katie Holmes has received a lot of attention for her sleek, sophisticated style transformation. She's friends with many in the fashion elite, includingVictoria Beckham and Giorgio Armani (who designed Holmes' wedding gown). Perhaps that's why Katie decided to try her hand at design this year, producing one of the most bizarre silky jumpsuits the flashbulb has ever illuminated.

2. Jodie Marsh

'Starlet' is obviously being used loosely. British "glamour model" Jodie Marsh deserves a slot on the worst dressed list, however, as she is clearly trying her hardest to make sure makes the cut. Congratulations Jodie - your hard work is hereby rewarded!

1. Solange Knowles

My antipathy towards Solange Knowles' sense of style is well-documented. She's dead-set on setting herself apart from her older, more-famous sister, and part of her plan for superstardom seems to involve creating a "unique" image that hinges on Big Bird fabrics and an unhealthy love of fuschia.
