Jennifer Connelly

Once again, this picture is a couple of days old, but I have to voice my doubts.

Because they're doubts, not screams of agony. I really love Jen, and I think she's almost rocking this fashion-forward outfit. But not quite. The coat is rather fetching, although I'm not sure about the bracelets...and then we get to the leggings. Ouch. Sheer leggings, especially with sharp-toed shoes like these, are just too much for me. If they had been tights, I would have loved this look. But no matter how hard I try, I can't bring myself to like semi-opaque leggings of any form, color, or style. I apologize to all of the legging lovers of the world.

Mariah Carey

I've heard tons about how this is her "signature look" and all, but seriously?

Nobody can look possibly look good in something this short and this tight and this low-cut. Usually people have the common sense to go for one of those attributes, or maybe two for an extra-sexy outfit. But when you're about to pop right out of your dress, it's usually a sign that you've taken it just a smidgen too far. Or, in Mariah's case, a heck-of-a-lot-more-than-a-smidgen too far.

The winner/loser!

The results are in, ladies and gentlemen, and the readers of Fashion Poirot believe that Rihanna's outfit was the worst of 2007!

This outfit won with 30% of the votes. Click here for the original post, and thanks for reading and voting! Come back tomorrow for more fashion victims...

Pamela Anderson

Aw, Pam. You never really were one for the whole understated, subtle look.

No, please don't hitch your dress up any higher. It's okay. We get what you're trying to say; yes, you still have legs and breasts. Usually the idea of a cut-out neckline is for a sort of peep-hole effect. But here, the effect is more of Pam cutting out a huge chunk of her dress and draping the excess material around her neck. And gluing on a big tag proclaiming "CHANEL" onto her dress. Because I know all designers come up with some wacky stuff, but they usually refrain from attaching their names to their clothing by way of huge, ill-fitting signs.

In any case, I would hesitate before decisively linking my name to such a fashion monstrosity...but that's just me.

Come back later tonight for the officially worst celebrity outfit of 2007, as chosen by you, the readers.

Sienna Miller

Wow. There's a lot going on here, Sienna.

Grey cap, black leggings (or tights, I hope), tan croc-skin boots, a loud black/orange/silver patterned top, a black bag, and a fur wrap. It's almost bearable in a "so-good-it's-bad" kind of way.

Almost, but not quite. It's just bad. Not even wacky Ms. Miller can get away with this mismatched palette of colors, textures, and confusion.
