It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Aaron Carter makes a rare public appearance, complete with socks that make him look like a witch from Oz. We aren't crazy about the tank top, either. 

We're not sure what Andrew Dice Clay is going for here. Maybe's he's just teasing us with two inches of calves (something he may have picked up from Aaron Carter)? Plus, what's going on with that black leather fanny pack?

The "Oz the Great and Powerful" star showed up to celebrity stylist Kate Young's Target launch at The Old School in New York City on Tuesday with a very strange hairstyle. Every woman knows how tough it is to grow out short hair, but Williams' three-way parted bangs are a bit over the top.

Bangs are hot right now (First Lady Obama and Kim Kardashian are just a few celebs who recently started sporting the look), but we think Williams looks like she ha...

Best Oscar Fashion Of The Last Decade
The Academy Awards have always been the pinnacle of yearly fashion, an opportunity for the world’s most glamorous stars to slip into something silky and ham it up for cameras. Since the first annual instance of the event in 1929, the show has evolved from a moderate dinner party into an elaborate red carpet extravaganza. Who could forget some of Oscars showiest red carpet moments, from Cher’s feathered headgear and strappy leather get-up, to Bjork’s swan dress, to Gwyneth Paltrow’s elegant pink Calvin Klein? The last ten years have been decidedly less insane, but several stars have still ma...

There's nothing wrong with taking a fashion risk now and then, and Michelle Williams did just that at the "Oz The Great and Powerful" Los Angeles premiere on Wednesday.

The actress, who plays the Good Witch in the film, wore a pretty white short-sleeved dress embellished with silver flowers. But what makes the gown unique is the extremely high slit on the right side that revealed quite a bit of leg (and her black undies).

It's not too often the demure star shows so much skin, but we think she did it in just the right way without going over the line.

She was joined on the yellow brick roa...
