Fashion guru Wintour tops fashion faux pas of 2008

January 2, 2009

SUPERHERO-COSTUMES/Anna Wintour may be all-powerful in the world of fashion as editor of Vogue magazine but it seems even the almighty can get it wrong when it comes to frocks. Wintour topped a list in Time magazine of the fashion faux pas of 2008, wearning a silver dress to the Met Costume Gala that “makes her look like she’s encrusted with ammonoid fossils.”

But the stylish Wintour had some good company on the list. Coming in second place was Janet Jackson in a gold jumpsuit she wore to open the concerts on her RockWitchu tour which Time said did not seem to fit quite right and made her look like she came from another planet.

Christian Siriano, who won the fourth season of “Project Runway,” came under fire for wearing a gold, ruffled satin shirt while others in the firing line included Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, Paula Abdul, Katie Holmes, and Kate Bosworth whose Chanel ensemble looked “like stacked muffin tins.”

Think of any others?
