Call The Fashion Police!

Oops... even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We're telling you why Lady Gaga and Mindy Kaling's fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars' sartorial slip ups!

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

Ohmygaga! What in the world is this furry mess that Lady Gaga wore in London? It's Fashion Week in London and this monstrosity is what Mother Monster donned to watch the Philip Treacy show.

Apparently Gaga thinks burqas, dead animals and dirty words are super trendy this season. The singer, who's come under fire from PETA for wearing fur in the past, upped the ante in this flesh-colored ensemble and accessorized with raccoon tails. No word on if they're real or fake, but one thing's for sure: They are really ugly.

Her clutch, which is embroidered with the infamous C word (slang for a certain part of the female anatomy), is also pretty offensive. We'd like to suggest that Gaga look up another C word in the dictionary since she's clearly lacking in it: class.

The final verdict? We're certainly not the only ones finding fault with Gaga's fashion this week. Muslims were also insulted that she'd wear a burqa (their traditional religious garment) while carrying a purse bearing a bad word.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling

We loved Mindy Kaling on The Office, and we bet her new show, The Mindy Project, will be great, too. But perhaps Mindy can find time in her busy schedule for another project: finding a new stylist!

The comedienne headed to a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman in this wine-colored getup. Winter isn't here just yet, so there's no need to dress in layers. Mindy wore a polka dot print collared blouse underneath her high-waisted tank dress. The wide cut of the skirt adds bulk to her small frame. A pencil skirt would have been more slimming.

And what's with her leopard pumps? Animal accents are hot but they really don't match her outfit. There's just too much print going on here.

The final verdict? Hey, at least she didn't offend any religious groups with her fashion mistake! Mindy should stick to trying one trend at a time and go for cuts that flatter her figure. We love her lipstick, though.

I rarely comment on such articles, but I feel a need today. Lady Gaga's outfit, yes, offended religious groups and can pretty safely be labeled as "bad." However, you're flat-out body-shaming Mindy Kaling, while also sending the message that women should be strictly restricted in their clothing choices to what society deems "flattering" -- a constructed notion, by the way. Mindy Kaling doesn't need to be stuffed into some pencil skirt to be seen as beautiful (which, by your definition, seems to mean "skinny"), and hey, maybe she gets colder a little easier than some folks. Personally, I think she looks fabulous, and you, Cristina Gibson, look like you might need to reexamine the way you critique women.

I 'm getting used to see Lady GaGa in her outrageous outfits, but this new one is not pretty, sci-fi or nuthin'-- it looks like she was cleaning out the bed of an old hunters pick up truck and decided to wear it. not impressed. She should pull it back a few notches and try something really beautiful.

Oh Gaga. I know everyone is flipping out about this, but is it really any weirder than a meat dress or a plastic bubble suit? She's always going to be a bit weird and out there, that;s kind of her thing.

Mindy definitely over did it in this look! But from the neck up she looks amazing! She really is a beautiful woman, but needs to wear things that are a little more flattering.

Mindy Kaling's outfit isn't flattering on her necessarily, but isn't wine colored clothes the new thing for fall? And Lady Gaga...don't even get me started with her. I've never understood her sense of fashion and I don't ever think I will.

Omg what in the world is Lady Gaga wearing? I understand making a wrong fashion choice every now and then...but that's not even an outfit!!!!
