Alyssa Milano
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!

Alyssa Milano wore this dreadful top that features not one, but three different animal prints. She then paired it with a striped skirt that didn't match at all.

Ruth Wilson tried on this artistic dress to the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. We definitely don't get it, especially the flaring skirt.

Kate Nash is all set for the Renaissance faire in this poofy red gown, matched with fishnets and combat boots.
