Cassie the Fisherman.

What in the world was R&B singer Cassie thinking, arriving to the 2009 BET Awards, wearing this... this monstrosity! The good news is that after the show when everyone became hungry, Cassie whipped off her dress and caught a whole school of fish for everyone to eat. Hmm, sushi.

Seriously Cassie, trying to be ''hard'', really isn't a good look for you. Between the half shaved head and this dress, I'm just waiting for the straitjacket to appear. What I really don't get are those boots, was she expecting rain and put on her handy dandy...galoshes! Alot of people are saying that Cassie is trying to compete against Rhianna. Well, if that rumor is true then Rhianna has won. Sorry Cassie but, you've lost this battle.

Controversial Dresses That Made Headlines.

No actual swans were hurt or used in the making of this oh no she didn't. Please proceed with caution.

Bjork: hey, know what would be cool? If I a bird...with it's head...placed on one of my girls! This is gonna be the best Oscars ever!!!!!!!!

I think I can safely say that we all remember when Bjork wore this dress to the 2001 Academy Awards. We did a collective gasp when Bjork stepped onto the red carpet wearing...a swan (sigh). I just don't understand how a friend, her stylist, heck anyone who loved her, let her wear this. Everybody in the fashion industry talked about this dress (people outside the fashion industry too) for days, for weeks on end. After the dress had served it's purpose (getting attention for Bjork) she carefully removed the swan and placed it back in the pond where he spent the rest of his days in peace.

Michael Jackson: King of Pop and Style Icon.

On Thursday June, 25 2009, America lost one of the greatest musical icons in history. Michael Jackson.

Born Michael Joseph Jackson on August 29, 1958 to Joseph and Katherine Jackson in Gary, Indiana, Michael was the seventh child of nine children. Michael first started singing and dancing at 5 years of age for classmates one day. Michael's professional music career debuted when he was 11, performing with his brothers who were known as the Jackson 5. Michael and his brothers suffered through their father's physically and verbally bouts of rage off stage but sang and danced their way to the top of the charts on stage.
In 1971 Michael began his solo career though he was still a part of the Jackson 5 group. In 1978 Michael starred as Scarecrow in the film musical The Wiz where he met Quincy Jones, who agreed to produce Michael's solo album Off the Wall. It was the first album to generate four US top 10 hits, including the chart-topping singles "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" and "Rock With You''. Off the Wall reached number three on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified for 7 million shipments in the US and eventually sold over 20 million copies worldwide. In 1980, Jackson won three awards at the American Music Awards for his solo efforts: Favorite Soul/R&B Album, Favorite Male Soul/R&B Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Single for "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough". That year, he also won Billboard Music Awards for Top Black Artist and Top Black Album and a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for 'Don't Stop Till You Get Enough'.
Michael's next album Thriller, would be the album to break all records and to be held as
possibly the greatest album ever created. Thriller remained in the top 10 of the billboard 200 for 80 consecutive weeks, 37 at the peak. Michael's album Thriller, sold upwards of 109 million copies, making it the best sold album of all time. Thriller was and still is a very important part of music around the world. Michael's music influenced us, and still influences us today. Michael also changed the way we danced. With moves like the 'Moonwalk', the 'Robot' and the 'Lean' he single handily changed Hip Hop, R&B and Pop dancing into something incredible. Although Michael faced a lot of scrutiny for his looks and his legal troubles, Michael remains the greatest dancer and singer to ever grace this planet.

Michael's style was complex. Simply by pairing white socks with black shoes, he created a trend that is still popular. One of Michael's most famous outfits, was the red jumpsuit (seen in Thriller) Or the most famous, the glove. Now everyone imitated Michael by wearing just one glove (admit it you wore it too) Maybe you were influenced by some of his other more... eccentric outfits. Many thought Michael went to far by wearing pajama bottoms to a court meeting in 2005. Michael was Michael. If he wanted to wear a sequins jacket with matching pants that was his prerogative. Michael was the King Of Pop and a Style Icon and he will be forever missed.

Mariska Hargitay

At the White House Correspondents Dinner we all knew that President Obama was a gift from God, since he so graciously sent down one beautiful snowflake to bless us with. Aah, so lovely.

Mariska Hargitay is definitely one of the most glamorous women alive, her acting skills are amazing and most importantly, she's a Mom. I just can't understand why she wore this dress. If the feathers were gone maybe, just maybe she could have gotten away with this dress but with them... it just looks like she was involved in a pillow fight and sadly, lost. I do like this off the shoulder style on Mariska though, and her hair and makeup are beautiful. Better luck next time Mariska we are all waiting.

Controversial Dresses That Made Headlines.

Besides selling albums that go platinum, Lil Kim is also known for her um...different approach to fashion. Let me think of an example... Oh I know, Lil Kim is like the only person who showed up to the 1999 MTV Music Awards with just a pastie covering one of her breasts.

Well, I believe I can safely say we all remembered this outfit (maybe that was the idea) with it's side breast baring split, this already shocking outfit was made even more so with the pasties. Who else but Lil Kim would wear pasties as a um...shirt? This outfit graced a couple of headlines ,but we were all surprised when she arrived wearing it, but seriously it was Lil Kim. What did we expect? Well, at least it was better than the outfit she wore to the 2001 MTV Music Awards. Back to the drawing board Kim!

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is perhaps the best women's tennis player in the world (also one of the most highly payed players) So why is she dressed like a solid gold dancer?

Serena and her sister Venus have changed women's tennis, with their serves fast enough to set you on fire and their out of the box style on the court. When it comes to fashion though, Serena doesn't always hit the ball. Serena dear, what were you thinking when you put this on? It kind of looks like she just came from practice and just threw on some gaucho pants made out of brown sugar and a sports bra. Just please tell me Serena, that this ensemble is not from your fashion line Aneres. Please tell me!

Ashley Olsen

Sadly, even though they make millions (if not billions) the Olsen twins fashion sense, or lack there of, kind of makes us all wonder what they spend their money on.

At the CFDA Awards, Ashley Olson's dress wasn't as bad as her usual attire is, it just wasn't very exciting or beautiful. Ms. Olsen's dress was way too long for her petite figure and the top of the dress looks like a whole bunch of yellow jackets decided to land on her. You can do alot better Ashley. We are waiting for you to arrive in a gorgeous dress one day to blow us all away. In the mean least we still have Halle Berry to observe.

Paula Abdul

I was looking at the 2009 Grammy Award's show pictures and came across this jewel of a messed up outfit. Oh, Paula what have you done?

While Paula Abdul is not exactly known for her fashion sense, we all did a double take when she arrived at the Grammys looking like a canary terminator. Paula's big hair and futuristic ensemble are a gigantic NO! Paula is one of those women that no matter what, you can be sure she will show up wearing something so out the box, it's a circle. All I can ask is... Why?

Controversial Dresses That Made Headlines

This was the dress that started controversy everywhere, at the 42ND Annual Grammy Awards.

This palm print sheer silk chiffon dress from Donatella Versace, turned everybody's head when Miss Lopez arrived with then boyfriend Diddy (or was he Puffy then?). The dress, while covering the most important lady parts, was one of the most revealing, controversial dresses in the history of the Grammy's. Some loved JLo's dress and were green with envy, others...not so much. The point is the dress had you talking about JLo, which pretty much put her on the map. So did you love this dress or hate it?

Kelly Osbourne

At the Terminator Salvation Premiere, a ghost like figure claiming to be Kelly Osbourne arrived wearing an aluminum siding dress while sporting a Billy Joel hairdo. Scary huh?

Oh Kelly, Kelly ,Kelly. Why do we continually believe Ms. Osbourne has finally gotten all her styling issues resolved, when we know out of the blue, she will come looking like Casper. I will say that I do love those peep toe pumps though. Alas, we can't all be perfect.

Vanessa Williams

While promoting her new album 'The Real Thing', Vanessa Williams wore a jumpsuit designed to make Catwoman squeal with jealousy. Eat your heart out Catwoman.

I'm a huge fan of Vanessa Williams,and I absolutely adored her in A Diva's Christmas Carol, but in this 80's inspired
jumpsuit I don't. Vanessa seriously, a trash bag jumpsuit paired with big purple hair, is not exactly what I would wear to promote my new album. We really do expect more from you Vanessa, I mean what would Wilhelmina say about this ensemble? I rest my case.

Band Aidlicious

Fergie (or the Duchess) isn't so Fergalicious in this band aid inspired dress and uber straight hair.

Now I love Fergie's out of the box music and clothes but other times (like this one) I'm thinking Oh no she didn't! This electric blue...dress? is so wrong on all accounts. What makes the dress even worse is the black fabric peeking out at you underneath the bandages. Come on Fergie, this is so not delicious. Cute shoes though.

There's Something About Cameron

At the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, authorities arrived and charged Cameron Diaz for poaching. Doesn't Cameron know that it's illegal to hunt Muppet's and make shoes out of them?

Cameron Diaz's fashion sense has gotten lost in translation somewhere along the way. Consequently she has been seen wearing outfits entirely too young for her and not very flattering for Cameron's modelesque form. Cam's hair just looks so flat and unkempt, everbody's like, where's her stylist when she needs him? Hopefully for the next red carpet event Cam will be looking like her regular self, with a stunning ensemble.
