List Rules Vote up the most cringeworthy looks that celebrities wore to the 2016 Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globe Awards is famous for being a night of glitz and glamour and a parade of untouchable talent and beauty that is wondrous to behold. While there is always a mass of celebrities that exceed expectations on the fashion front, there are also the inevitable fashion FAILs and misses that land stars on the 2016 Golden Globes worst dressed list. For every fashion home run, there are the cringeworthy awards show looks that make you wonder if the celebrities are in on the joke or just terribly misguided. 

 
While it's always great to see celebrities take risks on the red carpet, sometimes these looks fall completely flat. 
The worst-dressed celebrities listed here all have at least one glaring issue with their outfit - whether it be a bizarre print, a gross lack of fabric, or an oddly placed embellishment that didn't work. Some of the celebrities on this fashion disasters list were surprising (Rachel McAdams, what happened?!), but there are also some repeat offenders in the mix (we’re looking at you, Amanda Peet!) From the wacky, to the downright distasteful, all of these fashion fails missed the mark.

 

In keeping with the beloved 21st century tradition of being incredibly critical of anyone under the public spotlight, we have composed this list of the 2016 Golden Globes worst dressed. Give a thumbs up to whoever you think has the worst awards show fashion and a thumbs down to looks that you didn't think were that bad.

The only way Tracey Edmonds' feathered navy dress would be appropriate is if she actually wanted to look like a large bird.

Some people might think that a lingerie model look good in anything, but not even a body like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's could make this sad gold Atelier Versace dress look good.

She might be new to award shows, but that doesn't forgive the painfully frilly ice-salter-esque dress.

She's a young and fresh teenage star, which is why she looked so sad drowned in the massive ruffles of her maroon Marchesa gown.

Tierney took home a statue for her work on steamy drama The Affair, but her nude lip and snooze-fest of a dress left more to be desired.
