Take a moment to appreciate the BEST of the WORST outfits real, fashionable women would NOT want to wear. Feel free to chime in on what you could like and what is completely silly for Spring 2012.

Not for the Modern Princess

Puff sleeves make a comeback in a pink princess gown by Oscar de la Renta. Is there an occasion where you’d don this off-shoulder gown?

A Denim Don't

Powder pink hair, denim with shiny appliqués and an unflattering silhouette – we’re guessing this Thakoon ensemble is a definite “don’t” for any event, but what do you think?

Anna Sui takes layering to a whole new level in a pink, purple and gray outfit. Though the colors are gorgeous, the hat, fur stole and dip-dyed socks are a little much, no? We’ll let you be the judge.

The Bird's the Word?

Though we’re fans of Reed Krakoff’s collection, the bird’s the only word in this head to toe collage of prints for Spring 2012. What do you like and/or dislike about the look?

Betsey Johnson goes vamp with a lime green and hot pink dress in her Spring 2012 collection. Would you wear it? How about those lace-up booties?

Ralph Rucci knows how to work his ruffles and feathers with clothing that is more art, than ready-to-wear. This nude cocktail number is more sculpture than dress, but maybe you’d like to take it out for a twirl?

Hammer Time?

You’d be channeling your inner genie in a bottle with this lime green look by Oscar de la Renta. Though the separates may be ravishing on their own, would real women want to wear lime green hammer pants? Cue debate.

Too Blue

Thakoon hits a blue note with baby blue hair, a paisley top and pants that would be pretty on their own. Yet, the combination is a bit jarring. What (if anything!) inspires you about this outrageous outfit for Spring 2012?
