Oops... even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We're telling you why Brandi Glanville and Olivia Palermo's fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars' sartorial slip ups!

Call the fashion police!

Brandi Glanville

Did Brandi Glanville think she was going to an S&M club or the launch of McDonald's new McWrap in this head-to-toe leather look? Although she's not usually the most demure real housewife of Beverly Hills, this outfit is pushing the envelope, even for her.

The leather leggings are totally fine but we're not wild about the peplum top. Since it has a slit in the front, we think throwing a black tank under it would have been more appropriate since this is sort of a family-friendly event and not a night out in Vegas.

The leather gloves are serious overkill as well, although the single mom had a good excuse. She tweeted a picture of her seriously burned hand and said she was trying to cover up the injury with the gloves.

The final verdict? This is just too much leather! If Brandi had to wear the gloves to hide her hand, we would have kept the leggings and chosen a different top, like a solid silk flowy one or a bright blazer to offset the dominatrix vibe she's giving us.

Olivia Palermo

We never thought we'd see the day when Olivia Palermo would wind up on our worst dressed list! The City starlet is one of our favorite fashionistas and usually looks effortlessly chic at all times, but this leather dress is a disaster.

We love a good leather dress, but this one by Whistles is way too big and simply not flattering on Olivia's petite frame. We didn't know it was even possible to make leather look frumpy, but this frock singlehandedly accomplished it. The sleeves and skirt are so baggy!

As a red carpet veteran, Olivia should really know that tailoring is key. If she liked this dress, she should have had it taken in so she's not swimming in it, or gotten a smaller size.

The final verdict? Leather doesn't always have to be skin tight, but it should be fitted at the very least. Her hair also looks messy here. We guess no one's perfect, not even Miss Palermo.
