Oops... even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We're telling you why Lena Dunham and Heidi Klum's fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars' sartorial slip ups!

Call the fashion police!

Lena Dunham

Oh, Lena... we just love your HBO hit show Girls and we get that you play a quirky, awkward character on TV, but this is reality and the red carpet, sweetie. Actress-writer-director-producer and now author Lena Dunham attended Glamour's Women of the Year awards wearing this sad sack of a dress.

Her Roksanda Ilincic designed gown desperately needs a tailor. It's so baggy and shapeless, and the excess fabric in the middle does absolutely nothing flattering for her figure. The different colored sleeves remind us of our tee ball jerseys back in the day, and the mid-calf length hem isn't doing her any favors, either.

Lena should also learn how to pose! Even if your dress is hideous, standing up straight, putting your shoulders back and placing a hand on your hip would do wonders for her silhouette.

The final verdict? Lena, you can't be good at everything, so do yourself a favor and get a stylist. Your star is only rising from here on out, so you may as well learn how to rock the red carpet. Ditch the dress, but keep those shiny high heels.

Call the fashion police!

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum was so bummed her annual Halloween party in NYC got cancelled due to the hurricane this year, she decided to wear a costume while hosting MTV's EMA awards in Frankfurt, Germany. Because the Project Runway host and fashionista couldn't seriously think this getup was OK, could she?

Don't get us wrong — Heidi has an amazing body and would look gorgeous in almost anything, but the lace-up bodice and super high thigh slit scream Vegas streetwalker to us. Besides all that skin showing, the printed, embellished, one-sleeved ensemble looks cheap. And the matching lace-up blue shoes are the icing on this tacky cake.

The final verdict? If you've got it, flaunt it... but don't overexpose it, Heidi! We know you're a single, sexy hot mama, but please say Auf Wiedersehen to this garish gown. We love your hair and makeup though!
