Elizabeth Banks – Our Fashion-Forward Choice 2 of 15
Elizabeth Banks wowed us when she did the world tour promotion of The Hunger Games, and she wowed us yet again with her bold choices for this year's Catching Fire promotional tour. She is not afraid to go with a fashion-forward look and to embrace structure. Whatever she wears is unique, stylish and very her.
Kim Kardashian – You Win Some, You Lose Some 3 of 15
Kim Kardashian may be a pop culture icon who has loads of money, but that doesn't mean her style is always on-point. Although she is friends with many of the world's top designers and has a baby daddy who is very hands-on in helping her decide what to wear, she makes some mistakes. She's a beautiful girl and really can look fabulous, but wearing denim with denim, outrageous floral gowns, and dresses that look more like negligee than cocktail dresses lands her on the worst-dressed list. There is hope that 2014 could be a fashion win year for her. Her 2013 was for sure a win in her life and love!
Angelina Jolie – Best Red Carpet Moment 4 of 15
Angelina Jolie was stunning at the World War Z premiere. Forgoing her standard issue black, she went with a stark white structured dress by Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo (founders of the London-based brand Ralph & Russo).
"She didn't want to go for a full-length gown," explains Ralph. "We wanted something very striking that wasn't too overdressed, but wasn't too understated. We wanted something modern, simple and elegant." And they did just that.
Jennifer Lawrence – Worst Red Carpet Moment 5 of 15
We ALL love Jennifer Lawrence, how could you not? She's talented, smart, and hilarious. But even though we love her choices on screen, she recently made a bad choice on the red carpet.
She has a deal with Dior to wear their clothing for premieres, but this particular dress wasn't a hit, and Jennifer Lawrence knew it. "I think any time a girl has to show her thighs it's never going to be her favorite look," she said. "I loved it, I loved the dress — if someone else wore it," she clarified. "It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it]."
Jessica Alba – Always Chic 6 of 15
Jessica Alba is an incredibly busy woman; she's an actress, a businesswoman, and a mom of two. But even though she has such a hectic schedule, she manages to always look effortlessly chic, whether she's running errands or working the red carpet.
Miley Cyrus – Oddest Choices 7 of 15
It's no secret that Miley Cyrus wants attention, after all, she has an album to promote! One way she's catching the public's eye is through her very unique fashion choices, from super short shorts to one-of-a-kind outfits that resemble a harlequin. Let's hope she tones down her look a wee bit in 2014.
Kerry Washington – Always a Vision 8 of 15
Kerry Washington always seems somewhat understated, even when wearing an over-the-top designer gown. She just has that confidence and grace that highlights her beauty — not just the beauty of the clothing she is wearing.
Julianne Hough – Shows Too Much at the Emmys 9 of 15
Julianne Hough wore this sea foam green Jenny Packham number to the 2013 Emmys, and although Jenny Packham's dresses are usually amazing, this one just was too over the top. The color was great, the sparkle was nice, but the sheerness and the appearance that it could fall down at any moment made it a bit too daring for a sweet gal like Julianne.
Victoria Beckham – Fashion Maven 10 of 15
Victoria Beckham has no choice but to be chic at all times. With a fashion design house to oversee, her image is everything. She does a wonderful job of always looking chic and stylish. We love that she will occasionally throw in bright colors (like the orange pants in the left), and makes neutrals look new (at right).
Lady Gaga – Craziest Dressed 11 of 15
Lady Gaga is by far one of the worst dressed stars of 2013 ... but it's all on purpose. She uses her outfits as an artistic expression — one that is totally unique and pretty darn crazy. The three above are just examples from last month. There was a whole YEAR of these fashion follies.
Gwen Stegani – Punk Chic 12 of 15
Gwen Stefani isn't letting being pregnant slow down her fashion choices; she is still sporting punky outfits with high heels everywhere she goes. This year she wore a lot of black but always in new edgy ways.
Anne Hathaway – The Last-Minute Dress 13 of 15
Sometimes last-minute decisions just aren't thought through. Right before the 2013 Oscars, Anne Hathaway ditched the Valentino dress she was supposed to wear (reportedly because it was too similar to the one that Amanda Seyfried was wearing), and went with a pink dress by Prada. It was a choice that put Anne Hathaway on many worst dressed lists. But her smile with her Oscar more than makes up for it.
Sofia Vergara – Every Inch a Woman 14 of 15
Sofia Vergara of Modern Family is every inch a woman. She is confident, cool, and oh so curvy. One thing she really knows how to do is to dress for her body, highlighting her best assets in a sexy way that always looks glamorous and gorgeous.
Julie Bowman – Bridesmaid Revisited 15 of 15
We LOVE Julie Bowman. She is hilarious as the matriarch on Modern Family, but this dress was just too much for such an "every woman" type of actress. While the color was great for her, it looked more like one of those bridesmaids dresses you'd rather forget.
