Being a fashion icon is not fun.
Yes, you have admirers that copy your looks and create fan accounts, but you also get haters that go out of their way to pick on you and your outfit! So if your goal is to gain popularity, you should be prepared for merciless criticism. The only way to deal with it is to admit your mistakes and laugh them off. And never to repeat them, just like the celebrities on our list of “screwed up but not broken”.
So many fashion failures can be attributed just to Kim alone! But all of that was not for nothing, since now our reality queen is totally living up to her title as a first-rate celebrity. The online community regularly reminds Kardashian of her vulgar look at the premiere of her show in 2007.
"I don't know what I was thinking back then, with all those smokey eyes and open-toe shoes," Kim laments. But that is just nothing compared to the failure at the first Met Gala!
In 2013, while still married to Kanye West, Kimberly chose a Givenchy gown to dazzle on the red carpet. She was talked into wearing this floral print by Riccardo Tisci himself, but that was a big mistake. After the event, the Internet had been joking about Kardashian for years, comparing her outfit to couch material. "I cried all the way home," the star is still upset.
When asked which of her looks she regrets the most, Gwyneth always replies, "That Alexander McQueen look."
Of course, we are talking about the famous nude dress that showed us everything possible and impossible on the Oscars 2002 Red Carpet.
Photographers swarmed around the actress that night, forgetting about the other celebrities. As a matter of fact, Gwyneth likes the dress itself, the problem was in the way she wore it, "I should have worn a bra and I should have just had simple beachy hair and less makeup. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to – a little bit of punk at the Oscars."
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Nowadays Kendall is extremely careful with her image – after all, she is one of the highest-paid models in the world. Kylie, too, has undergone a major transformation and has no desire to reminisce about her "good old" days. But how can you forget a teenage fail when your followers are constantly reminding you?
"It's still so embarrassing to look back at old pics! I cringe," Kendall admitted.
It's hard to believe, but even Lady Gaga regrets some of her crazy experiments. And no, it is not the meat dress and the steak beret – the singer is upset about her look with a lobster on the head. And it's not the pictures that upset her, but... the wasted time! Lady Gaga reluctantly told journalists that during the recording process her team was constantly distracted by the lobster on her head and could not concentrate.
“I’ve been in the studio with boys. You can't make music with a bunch of boys who are staring at a lobster on your head. They're going to be distracted," the singer advises.
The rebel Miley doesn't just regret an outfit, she regrets an entire period of her life. She says the time from 2008 to 2013 was weird. Which is funny, because that's when she released her hit song “Wrecking Ball” and its legendary music video. Can you forget the scenes of naked Cyrus swinging on a giant ball?
The singer wishes she could, but she can not, "Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever. Once you do that in the mass that I did, it’s forever. I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball."
