Fashion designer Whitney Port said it best: "I really don't believe in fashion fails. I think people take risks, but I didn't love some of the looks." She thinks a few stars didn't quite hit a high note.

Which celebs missed the mark?

Fashion designer Whitney Port said it best: "I really don't believe in fashion fails. I think people take risks, but I didn't love some of the looks." She does think a few stars didn't quite hit a high note.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez definitely set out to get attention with her black Anthony Vaccarello dress, but Whitney isn't so sure it's the right kind of attention.

"Her slit dress was super shocking," Whitney told us. "It left literally nothing to the imagination. Just so unflattering."

Lisa D'Amato

America's Next Top Model winner Lisa D'Amato just overcame a horrific face injury, but that doesn't explain her strange attire.

"She looked very bizarre in a milkmaid-style outfit," Whitney said.

Janelle Monáe

Whitney wasn't feelin' Janelle Monáe's custom suit look.

"It looked like she was in a mariachi band," the designer told us.

Well, knowing Janelle, that's probably the look she was going for.

Bonnie McKee

Singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee went a bit crazy with her look — and it didn't quite work.

"Her half-blonde, half-pink hair was a bit of a risk!" Whitney said. "I didn't love this kind of look. Although I do love colored hair, this one was too much."



Beyoncé's black-and-white crepe pantsuit from Osman was underwhelming for Whitney.

"I always expect so much from her," she said.

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's Roberto Cavalli creation was on trend at the Grammy Awards — it was black, after all — but it wasn't right for this show, according to Whitney.

"She was too simple and overly sophisticated for this kind of an event," the designer said.
