A-list fashion fails we'd rather forget about

The biggest crimes against fashion committed this year. See gallery

For every fabulous style moment the celebrity world gifted us this year, there was a fashion fail that makes us wonder where all the star stylists disappeared to.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Katy Perry at the I Create Music Expo, April 2013

Katy Perry at the I Create Music Expo, April 2013

This dress isn't necessarily a fashion disaster in itself – we can see the shape working for the likes of Zooey Deschanel – but it makes Katy look like a shapeless little girl. It even makes her stand like one. The print doesn't make sense to us either – 90s mobile phones trimmed with what looks to be blue marijuana leaves. Katy, help us out here?

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Kim Kardashian at the Met Ball, May 2013

Kim Kardashian at the Met Ball, May 2013

It was a tough decision to include Kim Kardashian in this line-up, so impressed are we by her new mother-chic style, but there's only so much we can overlook – and this ensemble from May is burnt into our retinas for good. Givenchy was the design house responsible for dressing Kim and her massive bump in top-to-toe floral. It just didn't work, to the point that Vogue cropped her out of their best-dressed list, leaving Kanye to hold his own.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Madonna at the Met Ball, May 2013

Madonna at the Met Ball, May 2013

The argument for giving Madonna a break is that we should be used to the singer disregarding any boundaries of acceptable style. However, a fishnet body stocking, suspenders and studded collar takes the ball's punk theme and knocks it out of the park. We couldn't forgive this fashion travesty on a 30-something, so 54-year-old Madge definitely can't avoid our disappointed head shake.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Cate Blanchett at the Blue Jasmine premiere, July 2013

If it wasn't for the after-party photos, we would never have seen this gorgeous Balenciaga dress in all its simple glory – without that weird futuristic cape thing on top of it. We don't know what Cate was thinking, but this episode should be left in 2013 and never spoken of again.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Rihanna at the Chanel AW13 show, July 2013

Rihanna's given us a lot of food for thought with her outfit choices throughout 2013 but this one sticks in our mind, mainly because it's not even edgy or cool. At least the singer is usually pushing fashion boundaries, whereas here she looks as if she's thrown on her grandmother's cardigan without realising she's got nothing on underneath.

What do you get if you mix duck tape, nude pop socks and a sewing machine? This dress, unfortunately.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Miley Cyrus at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, September 2013

Miley Cyrus at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, September 2013

It's becoming increasingly difficult to pinpoint exactly where Miley Cyrus went wrong on the style front in 2013, but this outfit says it all. Perhaps it's when she decided she was going to go for a mix of Madonna, and burlesque dancer.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Lena Dunham at the Emmy Awards, September 2013

Lena Dunham at the Emmy Awards, September 2013

The most offensive thing about this outfit is not the ill fit or the garish print but Lena Dunham's clear awkwardness at wearing the Prada gown. Comfort is key on the red carpet, as well as style, even if celebs constantly try to persuade us otherwise.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Iggy Azalea at the EMAs, November 2013

Iggy Azalea at the EMAs, November 2013

Sidestepping the wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions, this black dress shows far too much of parts of Iggy that we'd love never to have witnessed. If only the skirt wasn't split three ways, this would have been a red-carpet winner.

Miley Cyrus at the EMAs, November 2013

You know those days when you wake up and think 'Wouldn't it be awesome to wear a dress that looks like a G-string emblazoned with pictures of dead rappers'? No? Us neither, but then we're not Miley Cyrus and we weren't invited to the MTV Europe Music Awards.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Jodie Kidd at the British Fashion Awards, December 2013

Jodie Kidd at the British Fashion Awards, December 2013

This Marios Schwab number looked positively warrior-like when we first saw it on the catwalk, but on Jodie the reality looks like a badly dressed extra in a historical drama. It's all we can do not to rip those stupid sleeves off her immediately.

2013's biggest fashion disasters: Joanne Salley at the Mandela premiere, December 2013

Joanne Salley at the Mandela premiere, December 2013

Reminiscent of Bjork and her swan frock, the Irish model decided to dress herself in what appears to be an homage to our feathered friends. We can't quite tell which animal she's showing love for, or why she chose the London premiere of Mandela to do so, but we do know that it was not a good choice. Not a good choice at all.
