If there were such a title, Miley Cyrus would be the queen of crop tops. This girl wears so many half-shirts, you'd think she was starting a belly button-baring revolution. And in some ways, she has. Everyone, no matter their age, has been rocking the super short shirts this year. Sometimes, a little crop top works, but let's pull back on this one, ladies. Everything in moderation, right? {Photo Credit: Jody Cortes/Wenn}

Even a gorgeous gal like 'Les Miserables' star Amanda Seyfried looks like Morticia Addams in super dark red lipstick. We're all for a darker take on the classic red, but when it gets this close to the Goth look, we start begging for starlets to pull it back a bit. {Photo Credit: Spash News}

Beyonce may be the closest thing we have to royalty, but she can still commit crimes of fashion.

Alright, we'll be honest. The Biebs isn't actually wearing harem pants, but the deliberate crotch-drop in his pantaloons is reminiscent of another trend that has survived throughout 2012: ladies with billowy genie pants. It's not flattering on you... or compact Canadian pop stars. {Photo Credit: ABC}

Dear consumers of the world, most things Lady Gaga wears don't belong in real life. Clearly, Lucy Liu doesn't get that. Either that or she's just jonesing to trip in those impractical shoes and twist her pretty little ankle. Safety first, fashionistas! Lady Gaga style isn't worth risking a fall at every turn. Especially when they don't even look all that sexy. {Photo Credit: Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images}
