(1) KRISTEN STEWART vs. (2) KIM KARDASHIAN
A clash of two transparency titans. Kanye clearly wishes we’d keep him out of it. Sorry, sir. Should’ve thought of that. RECONSIDER.
Archives: Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian
Kristen all the way! Kim may be tacky but at least she doesn’t look dirty, bored and pathetic in everything she wears (and as a matter of fact I think several of KStews outfits are pretty tacky aswell.)
Amen! And honestly, this particular selection of Kim’s fuggery isn’t even that bad, considering some of the unflattering crap she’s worn recently (maybe the Fug Girls are giving her a pass on the obviously preggo outfits?). KStew’s fug is just so dour and joyless, even though she clearly spent a lot of time with a stylist. And how many times could she wear the same nude slip/granny panties with a sheer top? It’s both fugly AND repetitive.
They aren’t eligible. Contest always only runs oscars to oscars.
Agree x3! I can’t believe kim is crushing stewart. Stewart is a movie star who must have access to amazing designer pieces – NO EXCUSE. She looks dirty and unkempt and miserable. I think people are projecting their hatred of the kardashians into their voting.
Glimmer Bunny you said everything I was thinking. Kim is bad no doubt about it, but at least she owns it.
KS pales in comparison to the unflattering trash Kardashian wears. AND THOSE RUFFLE PANTS, OMG.
The ruffle pants clinched it for me. Those pants are like Kim K pointing to the bleachers and calling her shot. Fug Madness home run all the way.
the ruffle pants. omg. i…. just no. never.
i know … PUT A RUFFLE ON IT!
I feel strongly that KStew should be in the Final Four, but I cannot hate on anyone who voted for the ruffle pants. In a Fug Madness of worst single outfits, that might come up the winner (I’d put it in the Final Four with KStew’s blue old-timey bathing suit, Rihanna’s mesh bike shorts and, hmm, either the Biebs overalls or one of Zosia Mamet’s worst pants. Or the first dress KimK is wearing in this slideshow. This is tougher than I thought.)
Vagkin. Vagkin clearly rounds out the Final Four of single outfits.
Even then, the ruffle pants with the cropped turtleneck (for it WAS cropped, even if you can’t see it in this shot) would win.
I’m surprised that KStew isn’t in the lead here… Her surly expression alone should put her well ahead of KKard.
I think this was the hardest one yet…….. I went with Kristen purely because of the nude/sheer dress…. but Kim is so so bad too. Bahahha Fug Madness, you have outdone yourself this year!
SO. HARD. I detest that skanky ho bag, Kim K. Everything she wears is fug. Her very soul, I believe, is fug. She is nasty incarnate. I want her to go away because she is a plastic, fame hungry, fuggly dressed, soul crushing mess.
However, KStew is a highly visible actor who should know better. She is on the world stage for actually doing something (admittedly, not that well but at least she didn’t achieve her fame through a sex tape – AHEM, KIM). KStew has access to top designers and stylists and she be shutting it down on each and every red carpet. She fails at almost every turn. That is an unforgivable. You can AND should do better, Kristen. Fug fail, KStew FTW.
Jen310, my sentiments exact-a-mundo! K-Kard makes a career of bad taste and I am convinced she does not know better. K-Stew is an actress who should know better and possibly even has advisors telling her not to wear these hideous get-ups. K-Stew should reign supreme.
The transparent/lace/oil slick outfits on these two should win a special mention in FUG Madness … is there a category for worst stand-alone fug outfits?
A difficult choice. I never would have thought of those two as clothing kindred spirits, but there you go. I went with KStew, but I won’t be mad at KKard if she takes it. Really, they’re representing the same team, same brand of fug.
Do you know what I realized while looking through the archives for these two? KStew actually shows her undergarments more often than KKard. Think about that for a moment. How bad does your styling have to be if you’re an A-list actress who is showing more bra and panties than Kim Freaking Kardashian?
I voted KStew. She has both the ‘tasteless’ and the ‘terrible yet pretentious high fashion’ things going for her.
THIS. Everything about this.
This is Kim all the way. Granted I’ve picked the loser in every other round but I’m right here. That outfit that, I assume, she wore when she audition for Tron looks a concept design from Nissan. There’s never a moment when you can even pretend to try to empathize with what she’s trying to do. P.S. I’m frowning while typing this. It totally works.
I just love Long-Suffering Kanye.
I hate KStew which is why I don’t want her to win.
I argued vehemently in defense of Kristen Stewart during the last round, which exhausted me. I have no more to give.
But I will just quickly remind folks that if you search her, you’ll see that she had some awesome clothes this year, as well, including a neon yellow mini-dress, a terrific LBD on Kimmel (I think), a perfect Balenciaga/ALC outfit of chic menswear slacks and a white button-down, just to name a few. I think she goes wrong in that for many of the red carpet events, she puts on whatever her stylist picks out; she’s has basically admitted such. Her stylist had a bad year with sheer and lace, and should be punished accordingly. I have a hard time punishing K. Stew for it, given that I think she often looks great in clothes that seem more to her taste and personality; I can’t really blame her for being easygoing and mellow about wearing clothes selected by her stylist, especially if she feels that she’s not so great with clothes. It’s not an excuse – just a factor I consider. Kim, on the other hand, is deliberate and purposeful in her choices and thinks she has great taste (that family’s shtick is clothes and styling); in reality, it’s putrid and comical, without a shred of self-awareness.
TL;DR – Kim K all the way.
YES. K Stew has admitted she doesn’t know a thing about fashion. She also had some high moments this year, and looked a lot better this year than she has in the past.
Kim THINKS this is fashion. And on top of it, she thinks she is going to revolutionize the way a pregnant woman dresses. *eye roll* Just go for the maxis, leggings and loose fitting tops sweety, they are popular maternity clothes for a reason.
Exactly. Kim and her sisters own actual clothing boutiques yet she dresses horrendously. That doesn’t make any sense and I do believe Kim thinks she looks fab. I have hard time voting for Kim because I don’t want to further perpetuate her presence in pop culture, but the archives don’t lie.
I have to agree. I don’t hate Kristen. Along with the horrendous outfits, she’s also worn some really great ones. Can you say that about Kim? I don’t think so. Plus, even in a couple of the too naked ones, at least Kristen looked good. That naked Liza Minelli get up? You have to admit, she rocked it, as stupid an outfit as it was. Again, you cannot say that about ANYTHING Kim K wore. So Kardashian all the way.
K Stew may not know diddly about fashion, but even a child knows that you shouldn’t look naked even after you’ve put on your clothes. I might give her a pass on random fuggery, but there is just SO. MUCH. UNDERWEAR.
I would argue that her visible granny panties were less offensive to me than seeing Kim K’s flesh consistently squeezed into clothing at least three sizes too small (even before she was pregnant). That’s grotesque. As Annie S. points out below, at least Kristen has the figure for naked, if one must be naked (which, let’s be honest, was a trend this year and she is far, far from the only offender). Kim K. abuses her curves to the point of calling to mind yeast infections, bursting seams, and camel toes.
Agree with every last vowel and consonant of every word you say, Pantsonfire. YES.
I don’t even KNOW how I’m going to vote Bieb vs Kim, though, I think I might implode.
Aw, Mel, a kindred spirit!
Yes. Also why I voted Kim.
Whoops! That was in response to pantsonfire.
Yes! I agree with all of you. I chose Kim K based solely on the fact that she is actually trying. Whereas KStew puts on whatever is handed to her.
You can always say no to your stylist.
This is certainly true. That’s why this is a factor for me, but not a total excuse. There are many other things that went into the calculation for me, including that overall I find Kim K’s fashion more offensive and like nothing she wears, but tend to like what Stewart wears. I do think it’s fair to consider that Kristen Stewart doesn’t pretend to be a fashion expert, and gamely has her share of hits and misses, probably based a lot on her relying on a stylist she trusts, versus Kim K. carefully selecting (and having custom made, in some instances) those heinously fugly clothes–it’s conscious and deliberate. Is Kristen’s trust misplaced? To some extent, yes. Bad decision there. But it’s a matter of negligence rather than true intent, in my opinion.
I want Kristen to win this whole damn thing soooo much! Come on people, vote for Kristen! That last photo says it all!
I had to vote for Kim – KStew may have had a lot of bad, but she also had some good in there. Kim had no good whatsoever. I’m gearing up for a Bieber/Kardashian battle.
And by “good in there”, I mean at other points during the year, not in this slideshow.
Kristin gets designer dresses flung at her and THESE are her selelctions?
I agree with pantsonfire, Kristen has some terrible outfits there, but at the same time she’s worn things I’ve really liked. I even like the flowery dress that the Fuggirls think should be a mini. I voted for Kristen in every other round, but when up against the tragedy that is Kim Kardashian, Kristen loses. If what she wears is sheer and lacy and overly revealing, at least she tends to look okay in it. Kim’s fug isn’t flattering at all.
Agree with all of this – I liked that dress too. Kim, however, I’ve never seen look good in anything.
I REALLY wanted to vote for K.Stew – the chapless-ass pantsuit alone is worthy of a title, IMO – but at the very least her horrible, horrible stylist dresses her in stuff suited to her body type. She’s young, she’s thin, she’s got great legs, and her clothes show those off, even when they’re terrible. KK is a sartorial hot mess who has a great, curvy figure but insists on dressing like she’s K.Stew’s size. Which results in her looking dumpy, silly, and/or pathetic. Km for the win.
there is nothing difficult about this choice. KStew was styled in all of these looks. Kim styles herself…
I repeat: You can always say no. And if you don’t, you’re only hurting yourself.
The ruffle pants win every time. Every time!
I had no idea these two had such similar taste in clothing. I felt as if they equally deserve to win this round – so I went to the comments. As soon as I saw the Kard was winning – i knew what I had to do, vote for the Stew in the hopes of evening it out a bit. (Give her the recognition to which she and the granny panties are due.) That said – I can’t believe how badly she’s behind. (Pun intended).
KIM FOR GOD SAKE! Kristen has this uber-trendi style, that often comes on as off-putting, but at least she is trying to do something original and she own’s the stuff she wears (in her own frowny-way), where as even though Kim has all the money in the world to put on her fashion, she looks tacky, trashy and trying-too-hard. Kim should own the fact that she has a figure and wear her own sizes.
And I see that as Kim presents just bad taste, Kristen presents fashion in avant garde way. So of course I voted Kim.
I was aiming for Kim until I went through them all again, and ended up voting for Kristen. She had so many unbelievably ugly outfits. Not just one or two mishaps, but reams of bad ones. And she, compared to Kim, ought to know better.
Just curious – why should Kristen know better than Kim Kardashian? Kim used to be a stylist and her family owns several clothing stores, as I understand it. Kristen has confessed to not knowing much about fashion; she’s an actress, not a model or a fashionista.
This was hard because I think Kim is worse, but I wanted to vote Kristen because I’d really rather not see Kim in the last rounds. I just don’t want to have to look at her anymore.
Still, Kim does deserve it, for her thorough devotion to her fug, so I voted for her anyway.
Not that it would have mattered! This is shaping up to be a real landslide.
I’m voting for Kim on the principle that Ke$ha was robbed. That would have been a far worthier matchup than this one. Go home, K Stew!
Amelia, I’m right there with you. K$ WAS ROBBED.
As some have said already, KStew had some good things this year. (And some really horrible jumpsuit/anti-smoking ad dresses/mint malarkey/underwear exposures)
Kim had nothing good. Those peplum pants. That thing in slide one that looks like licorice melted on a gothic fishing net. The hairy foolery in many incarnations and that stupid white dress (I think slide 19) looks like she stuck a Tegaderm bandage over a strapless dress. There is not one thing right.. Not to mention it is 98% unflattering as hell and makes her look horizontally and vertically the same dimension. And she’s not.
Count how many time’s KStew wore Chuck Taylors and one’s choice will be clear.
I was totally voting Kartrashian until the last photo.
Me too! That last photo is so much aargh!
Had to go with Kim on this one, although Kristen made a good (bad) show. I will point out that although I agree that I have seen far too much of KStew’s underwear this year, AT LEAST SHE’S WEARING UNDERWEAR!! Are we forgetting the infamous transparent-pants bare-ass shots of KK getting in/out of a limo not that long ago? While I heartily endorse Looking Into Pants, a necessary precursor is Looking Into Underpants.
Wow, that sounds really wrong…
LOL! Looking into Underpants!
for one if them it’s red carpet choices, for the other just wannabe. Red carpet gives you stylists, designers showering you with free dresses and shoes, hairdressers, cosmeticians, jewelers, and THAT’S what you come up with?
Devastated…I am just devastated…Devastated…There are no words to tell you how devastated I am that Kristen Stewart will not make the finals. (Blanche Devereraux would understand though.)
I sort of feel like on clothes alone, they’re tied. But Kristen has the benefit of being a size 2. Some of Kim’s outfits probably wouldn’t be that bad on someone smaller. It’s just that nothing fits or is flattering. But still, when it’s close, I give the bigger girls more slack since their job is tougher. So I’m voting KStew for a year of skankwear and bad hair.
Or…she could just go up a few sizes. It’s not like they don’t make those clothes in larger sizes. And if they’re just inherently clothes that don’t work on a larger frame, she should make different choices. She has many resources, including her family’s line of clothing stores and is present at many fashion shows.
For me it came down to this: exposed underwear (the last slide) vs. The Ruffle Pants.
I gave it to Kristen.
This is the most difficult match-up ever! I honestly don’t know who to vote for because their fashion crimes are equally heinous. Guess I’ll have to toss a coin.
I have liked some things Kristen has worn this year, while I hate everything that Kim puts on her body. This one is easy for me.
Kristin sometimes looks good and occasionally looks great. Kim is all fug, all the time. Anyone who buys and wears a Cruella Deville skunk coat deserves to win, but I do love the look on Kanye’s face.
The sad thing is, you just *know* some idiot will buy that stupid cruella DeVille skunk coat off Kim’s “charity” eBay resale page. Just hope that that idiot doesn’t live in your hometown.
UNLESS they are buying in order to burn it, in which case, I have a medal to mail out…
Kim revolts me, but in a can’t-look-away-from-the train-wreck kind of way. She’s like the super trashy girls I see at one of the upscale malls around here. They provide excellent people watching, and so in a way I never want them to stop.
Kristen’s permasullen angsty teenager faces just make me want to forcibly wash her hair and put her in actual clothes. Nearly Nude Emo is not a good look on anyone.
That was like watching a fierce tennis game. My neck hurts. I gave it to Kim because the depth of her fug is contemptible, plus she has that heinous accessory, Kanye. Kristen’s fug gave Kim a hell of a run for her rags and riches, though. Excellent commentary, as ush.
I think that this was actually the hardest decision I’ve made in my life. They both deserve the title. But! Kim’s Kim Kostume took the cake for me.
Arrrrggghhhhh! I went with Kristen, but am not mad that Kim is winning. Money can’t buy taste. Srsly.
The damaged lung caption made me spill coffee on my keyboard.
Here’s why I’m going with Kim all the way: Kristen is 22 years old. I know she has a stylist, but, whatever, I made some pretty terrible fashion choices when I was 22 and if I had had a stylist I would have more choices from which to make more terrible decisions. Kristen needs to tone down the see-throughness for sure but a few of her simpler choices are great. Kim is 32. Her face looks like a wet barbie doll.
Sometimes I really don’t like what Kristen wears, but she does get it very right sometimes. There was a bright yellow dress she wore, another time a cropped white t-shirt and a cute skirt, etc. I think her style was really skewed after mini-coopergate, but overall I don’t think her year was as consistently horrific as Kardashian. Kim just has horrible style 24/7.
Easiest vote EVER!!! I like half of what Kristen is wearing… I can’t say the same about KK!
Voted for Kristin, but the pages took so painfully long to load I have to admit I didn’t take the 30 minutes required to look at 22 photos. But Kristin gets the fug for wearing dresses that I can see her undies through. Kim doesn’t have good taste, but lordy. At least I’m not peeking at her patooties.
I’ve worked out why I am finding it so hard!!
For me it’s like the tortoise and the hare – K-Stew swiftly ran almost to the finish line early in the year with her lung-cancer/jumpsuit of horror/granny-pant-evening-gown triple play, but then kind of got distracted and started wearing some acceptable outfits… leaving the tortoise that is Kim to just toil away all year wearing heinous outfits, ultimately claiming a crushing victory.
Aesop’s teachings have NEVER been so relevant to my life, tortoise Kim for the win!
Good lord, has there ever been a pair of competitors more evenly matched? Literally everything each woman wore I could see the other in, no problem. (Well, except maybe the fur. Kristen doesn’t strike me as a fur girl.)
In the end I voted for Kim, because I get the feeling that at least half of the get ups Kristen wore, she wore because her stylist handed them to her, rather than being proactive and choosing something to wear herself. While that’s still not a very good excuse – seriously, girl, I know you hate everything associated with the red carpet, but you could at least TRY to be professional about it – it’s still not as grave a sin as deliberately choosing to clothe yourself in peplum pants and a couture carwash.
Truly unsavoury as they are, I can’t 100% blame Kirsten for the visible granny panties. It’s a stupid trend that designers created and stylists picked for half the celebrities out there this year. It’s yucky, it needs to go away and it will.
Kim just wears ill-fitting, ugly, look-at-me-me-me monstrosities year round, every year. No contest.
How is Kim Kardashian blowing out Kristen Stewart?
I mean, I settled on Kim, but that was DIFFICULT. I mean, yes, the pants ruffle heard round the world (and I reiterate – if KATIE PRICE rocked a midsection ruffle better while WEARING A PANTOMIME HORSE ON HER ASS, you done fugged hard), but at least Kim never wore a see-through jumpsuit.
What pushed me was, incidentally, the pants. Apparently, Fug Madness is all about the pants now.
As an aside, if Yeezy isn’t allowing his babye momma to wear anything that actually fits her, I’m not going to buy his album, I’m not gonna download that motherf’er, and I’m certainly not gonna shoot a bootlegger.
Speaking of all about the pants. Or no pants:
My Take-Away from this is: Neither Kristen or Kim is as Sexy as She Thinks She Is. That is All.
At least Kim smiles.
Kristin Stewart was the highest paid actress in Hollywood last year. She can afford to buy some taste. KKard is a tabloid goddess, why does anyone expect more from her.
Granny Panties ATW.
Thank you thank you thank you a thousand times for alternating the pictures! It was much easier to choose and not give up mid-way. Kim got my vote for overall tackiness. I think Kristen Stewart had a bad year, but transparent seems to be a thing right now and she was promoting three movies so was out and about wearing the latest trends. And she’s never dull, except for her hair.
Kim just lacks …something. Restraint? Eyeglasses?
I cannot believe that Kristen isn’t winning. I mean, Kim was bad (especially the ruffle pants), but Kristen’s crazy sequin sheer crotch-tacular jumpsuit is so so so soooo fug.
Apart from her Hurricane Sandy Relief ensemble, KS doesn’t look stupid. Naked and sour but not stupid. (And I have to put in an adore for pic 16)
However, the Kwaste of Kspace looks ridiculous in every single pic. I’m staggered that her taste is so appalling. I can’t begin to imagine what opening her wardrobe(s) must be like.
Two wenches, equal in fuggery . . . yeah, this one boils down to, “Who annoys me the least?”
Jeebus. That slideshow was a whole lot of serious fug. A buffet loaded down with platter of bad idea after bad idea. I hope someone wears something pretty tomorrow so we can all get a bit of visual alka seltzer.
Kristin Stewart should have won this by a LANDSLIDE. I just don’t get it.
I’ve never seen KStew look as good as in slide 16 when it looks like someone actually took the time to do her hair and makeup.
And now I feel like my mother: “See how pretty your are when you BRUSH your hair.”
Honestly, I feel like these two, Beibs, and Lindsey should have been Final Four. That said, Kirstin still wins it for me- Kim at least doesn’t look dirty and dour.
I have this policy that I won’t vote for fuggery when the fugger is (a) crazy or (b) on the job. Nicki Minaj? It’s HER JOB to show up places looking like a pastel clown. And since it’s KimK’s JOB to show up places looking like a blow-up doll, I opened this page assuming I’d vote for KStew.
Except … I … actually … kind of love several of KStew’s outfits. She rocks that ridiculous pantsuit. I have no idea how. The bathing suit abomination is super cute on her. I don’t know what’s happening to me. Maybe her total lack of affect means that there’s no “oh honey no” reflex?
As for KimK … she’s wearing stuff that is not just ugly, not just trashy, but that is really, really unflattering. Her outfits are interfering with her work. Aside from the insane sexbot dress, that is, which is awesome and can stay.
the horror of it all … i seriously can’t decide.
No contest–I found this one the easiest yet–has to be Kim, hands down. Even though her stuff is, I’m sure, expensive, it always, always looks cheap. She has more money than God, but it’s wasted! At least Stewart has looked cute on occasion. Kim–NEVER!
Not even close. Kristen may be sulky and blah, but Kim is the driver of the train wreck known as the Kardashian family. It’s a pretty damning indictment of U.S. popular culture that these non-entities have become (in)famous after achieving absolutely nothing. The one redeeming thing about the Kardashians is they make us Canadians feel a tad less guilty for having inflicted the Beeb on the world.
Was on the fence. Ultimately, I went with KK for the Fug.
My thinking: KStew really doesn’t care. I mean, she puts on the dresses and the heels for events, but doesn’t that hair say it all? It says “F.U., red carpet. I am doing this, but it’s an afterthought.” In real life, she is a tee, jeans and converse girl. Which is not fug, just normal. For the red carpet, she seems to put on what someone else has picked out for her. Sometimes good, sometimes great, sometimes incredibly fug. Ultimately, I can’t fug her for having a bad attitude. KK, on the other hand, must spend LOADS of time trying to look like this. My god, she puts her makeup on with a trowel. There is A LOT of thought and time that goes into each and every fug.
How is Kristen not taking this? LOOK AT THE PANTIES AND SHEERNESS.
I missed the poll yesterday so I just went through the slideshow and thought Stewart was an easy choice. Surprised to see her losing by such a wide margin. They both wore a lot of terrible outfits, but hers were worse by a mile. I find her unattractive in general, which may have swayed me. On second thought, nope, it really was just the extreme clothing fug. Kardashian’s seemed mild in comparison – ruffle pants notwithstanding. Hey, at least she can blame hormones for some of those questionable decisions.
Kim K has no talent and a perennially bad choice in accessory – Kanye. Also she wears fur.
How is one expected to choose between these two obviously impaired individuals? Both of them are pretty, and could be SPECTACULAR, given a good stylist–or even a good best friend who would pull them aside and say, “Honey, No. Just.No.” These pictures make me sad for both of them, because they apparently do not have anyone in their lives who truly loves them and looks out for their best interests. Poor Babye and Future KSpawns.
