Julia, whoever told you a scarf was a woman's best friend was lying. If it was your stylist, fire her immediately. {Will Hart/NBC}

Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) on 'Ugly Betty'
Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) on 'Ugly Betty'
ABC Television Network
From the title alone we know that something is going to have to be done to make gorgeous America Farrera 'ugly,' but did we have to sacrifice so many perfectly good clothes? On their own, Betty's wardrobe items are just fine, it's just when a blind four-year-old in the dark pairs them together that's when we have a problem. {ABC}
3
Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) on 'The Nanny'

Screech (Dustin Diamond) on 'Saved By the Bell'
Screech (Dustin Diamond) on 'Saved By the Bell'
NBC
The whole cast of 'Saved By the Bell' could use some styling, but the worst offender is definitely geeky Screech. Beneath those ugly clothes he's probably a cute kid, but no one would ever know. {NBC}
5
Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) on 'Revenge'
Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) on 'Revenge'
ABC Television Network
Take two parts Chuck Bass, one part Hamptons douche, and three salmon colored polo shirts and throw them in a blender. The result? Nolan. It's not a good look. {Jim Bridges/ABC}

Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert) on 'Little House on the Prairie'
Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert) on 'Little House on the Prairie'
NBC
Just because it's 1870 and you live in the woods does not mean you can wear braids and the same blue frock 365 a year. Okay, maybe it does, but stay away from the red carpet! {NBC}

Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) on 'Gossip Girl'
Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) on 'Gossip Girl'
Hollywood.com
Serena regularly forgets the cardinal rule of fashion, which is that you should choose either cleavage or legs. If your legs are showing, you should cover up on top and vice versa. The only rule (fashion or otherwise) that Serena follows is "I don't give a f***k." Which is why she usually looks like a tramp. {CW}

The Cast of 'Glee'
The Cast of 'Glee'
FOX
From the track suits to the cheerleader uniforms to whatever it is exactly that Rachel Berry wears, the cast of 'Glee' would be hauled away from the red carpet by the Fashion Police should they take one step too close. {FOX}

Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) on 'Friends'
Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) on 'Friends'
NBC
Phoebe, Phoebe, Phoebe. Such a pretty girl, such an ugly wardrobe. You should burn your shapeless skirts and hippie vests in a ceremonial bonfire. {NBC}

Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) on 'Family Matters'
Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) on 'Family Matters'
Warner Bros.
Suspenders have been a black tie staple for ages. However, the way that Urkel wears his suspenders is lightyears away from classy. {Warner Bros.}

Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) on 'Dexter'
Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) on 'Dexter'
Showtime
Everyone's gotta have a signature look, but Dexter takes that to the extreme with his "kill henleys." He must have a closet full of the skintight knit shirts. And while they highlight Dexter's killer (you're welcome) physique, they should not be allowed anywhere near a red carpet. {Showtime}

Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet) on 'The Cosby Show'
NBC
Looking back a fashion from '80s TV shows, we can usually chock the awfulness up to the ill-advised trends of the time. But Denise Huxtable's were bad at the time, and they are even worse now. {NBC}
14
Clarissa Darling (Melissa Joan Hart) on 'Clarissa Explains It All'

Nickelodeon / Viacom International Inc.
We've got give Clarissa props for finding a personal style at age 14, but those vests should probably be burned. {Nickelodeon}

Walter White (Bryan Cranston) on 'Breaking Bad'
Walter White (Bryan Cranston) on 'Breaking Bad'
AMC
We know you love your Heisenberg hat, Walter, but can we tell you a secret? It looks awful. That is one ugly hat. Top hats and fedoras are much more red carpet-friendly anyway. {AMC}
