How often do you see a pic of a celeb looking like a hot mess and wonder how, with all of the stylists, designers, makeup artists and Hunger Games-style prep teams behind this girl, did this happen? We do it a lot. That’s why we’ve created a game for just such moments where we get to reimagine celeb style snafus—if only we were their stylists.
Ke$ha Introduces the World to the Side-Butt
Unpredictable Ke$ha shocked everyone at the Billboard Music Awards when she arrived in a surprisingly conservative Givenchy dress—until she turned to the side. The side boob is something we (unfortunately) know well, but Ke$ha had the honor of debuting the side butt. Only a few well-placed safety pins could’ve saved this look.

Eliza Doolittle Follows Suit
Not one to be upstaged, British pop star Eliza Doolittle rode the crest of Ke$ha’s side-butt wave at the Esquire and Stella Artois Summer Party. Nothing says summer like one half of a jumpsuit.

Jena Malone’s Bad Bangs
Jena Malone has always seemed like such a cool girl—despite her many illustrious roles, she’s totally avoided the mega-star drama. I always forget about her until I see her on some red carpet in a striking look, like the beaded Prabal Gurung cocktail dress she wore to the Vogue and MAC Cosmetics dinner… but the bangs she wore with it were unfortunately unforgettable. I haven’t seen just-off-a-hot-roller bangs like this since Hailey Duff’s in Napoleon Dynamite. But since I like Malone so much, let’s just consider this a case of ‘when bad hair happens to good people’.

Turn Down the Volume, Stana Katic
It seems that bad hair is catching, and it caught Stana Katic at the Billboard Music Awards. Everyone loves a little volume, but the Quantum of Solace actress’ style goes all the way up to 11.
To the Left, To the Left
The topless protestors will probably be the most noted element of the Germany’s Next Top Model finale, which is fortunate for host Heidi Klum because nobody will remember this dress and what it did to her bust. Her typically strappy and slashed Atelier Versace number pulled everything awkwardly to the right—I’d be so happy if I could just give that sleeve a tug to the left.

Blake Lively Needs a Hair Do-Over
Blake Lively showed off her legs at the Chime for Change event in a short white Gucci dress with a cape that’s very of-the-moment. Too bad her hairdo can be best described as ‘of the moment she left the gym’.
