Abe’s Not Best Dressed List

Welcome to my unofficial official Not Best Dressed List. Each week, I will paw through a plethora of red carpet arrivals in search of starlets and fashionistas who arrive in looks that deserve a shout out, as in, I am shouting from the rooftops that this was not the best choice. Let’s just say that we can attribute this column to that famous Alexander Pope quote: “To err is human; to forgive, divine.”

Be sure to visit Abe’s website, I Mean…What?!? for your daily dose of things that make you go “Hmmm” and follow us on Twitter @imeanwhat.

NOTE: This list does not represent the opinions of the editorial team of Avenue.

Look, I am obsessed with Lisa van Der Pump, however, this dress is ill-fitting at best. She usually does no wrong and I feel guilty for adding her to the list.

Tyra Banks may be considered a brainiac now that she goes to Harvard, but somewhere between New York and Boston, Miss Banks has lost it. For the record, It = Better Judgment.

Glee's Jayma Mays looks cute however one and a half more inches to the length would have kept her off this list. Can we retire this Hootchie-Mama look once and for all?

I guess not because then Coco would have nothing to wear, except her husband, Ice-T.

Heaven forbid mentioning Kim Kardashian for fear of being struck by lightening, a.k.a. her mother, Kris Jenner. But Mom, this empire waist meets I Dream of Jeannie jumpsuit is fairly unflattering.

Katy Perry has actually become a cartoon character, but here she takes to the next, wrongest level. And I am not feeling the "back to blond" story either.

Ana de la Requera, star of Cowboys & Aliens, must know the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve". However, this get up looks like she is wearing her heart on the outside of her chest. And that sheer skirt is breathtakingly wrong.

Olivia Palermo is extremely lovely, however, this ensemble is unflattering. Period.

Clare Grant is Seth Green's plus one. She has been known to dress very Mandee Shops and did not disappoint at the Cowboys & Aliens premiere.
