Tuning into pre-show red carpet events or celeb-street spotting lets us peek into the lives of the fabulously-dressed and beautifully-coifed stars we love—or love to hate. And it’s even more fun when these women take their look to a level we might not get. Here are a few that are a little, shall we say, non-traditional.
1. Wacky Beauty: Paz de la Huerta
Paz De La Huerta
We applaud the TV star for taking a risk but the frosty stare and frosty lips are a bit much for our taste.
2. Wacky Beauty: Fergie
Waiting for your blowout to set? No problem. A confident demeanor will help you pull the look off in public.
3. Wacky Beauty: Kelis
We’re all about bling but we can’t tell if she’s wearing a grill or braces.
4. Wacky Beauty: Shakira
Seems like no matter what the superstar does, she always looks gorgeous. But since not everyone can pull off her Bride of Frankenstein hair and makeup, we’re partial to her signature bouncy curls.
5. Wacky Beauty: Jennifer Lopez
A fun take on an updo, this look channels our Star Wars nostalgia.
6. Wacky Beauty: Christina Aguilera
Cornrows, purple shadow, dark lips—oh my! Sticking to just one statement look is always the safest route.
7. Wacky Beauty: Snooki
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
Although the Snooki bump of hair is almost as recognizable as Audrey Hepburn’s in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, we’re thinking it won’t be as long-lasting a trend.
8. Wacky Beauty: Rosario Dawson
We love that the A-lister pushed boundaries and moved away from the standard loose curls we have come to expect on the red carpet. The look is modern, edgy and totally on-trend.
9. Wacky Beauty: Vanessa Bryant
She’s come a long way since her days of penciled-in brows and lips: a look best left in the 90s.
10. Wacky Beauty: Nicole Richie
Maybe it’s her perfectly-done makeup, but somehow she makes silver locks work in a chic, couture way.
