2. How'd she get tricked into this?

Is this the celebrity's version of "what was I thinking when I was drinking last night?" Instead of like, "what ex-boyfriend did I text," what crazy-looking red people did I pose for photos with?

3. Gail Simmons

I think she was there to plug tea that comes in a salad dressing bottle — an occasion that makes this outfit absolutely outstanding. (I'd have shown up in a tracksuit were this my duty.)

14. Sharni Vinson and Kellan Lutz

She is one of the best-dressed of this whole thing. He looks like he raided Tom Brady's closet. But he's so attractive he can pretty much get away with anything.

21. A model wearing an outfit made of roses.

Apparently stringing some roses together and wearing a few strands at once qualifies as a top. How have slutty Halloween people not figured this out yet?
