Without A Doubt, These Are The 14 Worst Outfits Of 2014

This year we've seen a lot of questionable trends take flight. Birkenstocks have become cool, Tevas are all the rage and even fashionable labels like Rag & Bone showed overalls during their runway shows. And while sometimes ugly trends are fashionable, other times ugly clothes are just ugly.

And in the past 12 months we've seen some seriously awful red carpet ensembles. While some outfits were less egregious than others, many left us running for cover. Between the belly chains, the dresses that looked like costumes and the ill-fitting satin rompers, we've gathered the 14 worst outfits from 2014. Here's to a new year with (hopefully) better style.

    This looks like a Disney princess costume gone wrong. Not only does the actress resemble Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" in her mustard yellow gown, but she is drowning in all that fabric.

    You may want to consult Rihanna next time you try the pajama trend, Jessi J, as this just looks like you're wearing your PJs. And no, those gold wedges aren't helping matters.

    Benson's romper seems to be pulling in the crotch area which looks wildly uncomfortable and also unflattering. The fabric is very wrinkled, the plunging neckline that practically reveals her belly button is too low and that sagging bow just looks sad.

    Duff took a fashion risk, and it's not paying off. Between the short, strapless leather dress, the cut-out and the metallic ruffle, there's a lot going on. The fit is also odd. This outfit may have been intended for someone with a slightly smaller bust.

    This looks like a tutu gone wrong -- or like something an angsty teenager might wear to piss off her parents. The top is wrinkled and ill-fitting, and the bottom is simply overwhelming the petite actress.

    Paulson fell victim to haute-couture gone wrong. While this may have worked on the runway, in real life it's simply scary. We're experiencing tulle overload.

    Milano's outfit does not do her any favors. Not only is the corset giving her an odd shape, but the length of the dress is all wrong-- it should be a few inches shorter, so it sits above the knee and makes her legs appear longer. Also, those bell sleeves have got to go.
