Friday’s Fashion Fails: Demi Lovato and Olivia Palermo

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

Demi Lovato

We love us some Demi Lovato, but we’re not feeling the all-black, ’80s-inspired getup she wore to the Season 3 premiere party of The X Factor in Los Angeles. The 21-year-old singer chose a Topshop corset, Dion Lee blazer and some MC Hammer-esque pants by Vince.

Perhaps the judge was trying to make a bold statement in her power suit ensemble, and from the waist up, we think her look totally works. The zipper detailing on her jacket is on trend, the chunky necklace is a nice touch and her blond locks look fab. But from the waist down, this is a disaster on poor Demi. The blazer flares out oddly and the baggy pants are adding unnecessary bulk to her butt and legs. It’s not flattering her figure at all.

The final verdict? Demi’s in great shape but we imagine these terrible trousers would be tough for anyone to pull off, no matter how tall or leggy they may be. These should get “exed” from her closet and replaced with a pair of skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, pronto.

Olivia Palermo at NYFW

Olivia Palermo

OMG, stop the presses! Olivia Palermo is actually wearing something we don’t like, and during New York Fashion Week, nonetheless. We usually lust after every fab creation the former reality starlet is spotted in, but this outfit she wore to sit front row at the KaufmanFranco show is more frumpy and less fashion-forward than we’d expect from the trendsetter.

The whole ensemble seems very “school mom attending the PTA bake sale” to us. Her navy dress has a long hemline, turtleneck top and cap sleeves. We think this would look more chic sleeveless and without the turtleneck. Then there’s the white blouse layered underneath the dress, which we’d ditch altogether. It’s too stuffy.

The final verdict? Olivia finished her look with black and white striped shoes, which don’t match the dress at all. Although this definitely isn’t our favorite outfit on her, it’s sort of refreshing to know that even Olivia isn’t perfectly on point all of the time, right?
