Like wine, celebrity style only gets better with age. These stars prove that time heals all things—fashion faux pas, in particular—and that glamour is always attainable.
Together, the shapeless dress, straw hat and tiny floral print say one thing: frumpy.
Subtle sparkle and a one-shoulder silhouette make for a timeless look.
Bleached blonde hair and a motley crew of tribal prints are more hippie than hip.
Classic polka dots add just the right amount of detail to a sweet A-line dress.
Not even a sharp black and white palette can compensate for the dizzying print on the pants and a too-big jacket.
A warm pink hue and discreet ruching make this dress universally flattering.
The gaping armholes seem trivial in comparison to the clogs, which flatter just about no one.
A body-skimming, cherry-red number gets an extra dose of glam from oversized ruffles.
A grandpa sweater can be chic at the right time and place, but never when paired with a formal strapless dress.
Reminiscent of Old Hollywood, this sparkling green gown is modest but alluring.
Not even a glowing smile can make up for this satin halter vest.
Lace edging and a flattering cut make for a delicate and elegant LBD.
Floor-length jackets only make petite women appear...more petite.
Thanks to sexy cut-outs and unique textures, this dress has "glamazon" written all over it.
A disheveled, ill-fitting suit is a prime example of menswear gone wrong.
Simple accessories and natural makeup accent the intricate, romantic print of the dress.
With a sweater tied around the waist and clunky boots, the look takes a nosedive from casual to sloppy.
Lady in red, indeed—an elegant neckline and slight train make this dress a show-stopper.
An oversized cardigan is laid-back and comfortable, but the color washes out paler skin tones.
A glittering belt and gleaming earrings perfectly complement a no-frills black dress.
A tomboy look may have been the target, but baggy jeans and patent oxfords are a clear misfire.
Discreet lace paneling and sheer ruffles give a flirtatious edge to this LBD.
