Amanda Bynes' Mugshot, Mitt Romney's Tan: The 5 Worst Looks of 2012
While many stars set trends this year, a few sported looks that no one wants to imitate.
1. ASHLEY JUDD'S EMMYS BEEHIVE
Even the Missing nominee acknowledged the gaffe of this high-reaching hairstyle, tweeting the day after the awards: "Most hair-dos from a special event I can fluff & recycle for a few days. I'm not sure this #Emmys haute couture look can have a second life!" Unfortunately, it shouldn't have had a first one.
2. AMANDA BYNES' MUG SHOT
Two years after announcing her retirement, the 26-year-old tweeted about her new lilac hair. The look sparked a tabloid frenzy when it was featured in a mug shot after an April DUI arrest. As her legal troubles mount and her agent, publicist and lawyer have dropped her, her locks have never looked better than her current auburn.
3. MITT ROMNEY'S TAN
The candidate didn't just lose the White House, he lost credibility with Univision's audience, for whom he wore a bronzer overdose. "I prefer the 'less is more' look when it comes to tan skin," says St. Tropez VIP Skin Finishing Expert Fiona Locke. A more natural tan, with St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse, would've been believable.
5. MILEY CYRUS GOING BLADE RUNNER
It's hard to believe that the mane man behind Jennifer Aniston's "Rachel" haircut also created Cyrus' choppy crop. After receiving criticism for the look, Cyrus went to the Twitterverse to defend it: "If you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all. my hair is attached to my head no one else's and it's going bye bye."
4. LADY GAGA'S GRAY-ORANGE HAIR PILE
Never one for subtleties, Gaga seemed to gain the most weight on her head, where she piled absurd teased bicolored hairpieces for her arrival at SongShan airport in Taipei, Taiwan, a Born This Way Ball tour stop. Even her electric green cutout dress couldn't distract from her WTF? hairdo.
