    12 Iconic, Completely Over-Dressed Pop Stars

    Some of these makeup advertisements are downright LEGENDARY.

    The MAC AIDS Fund began in 1994, and continues to raise money for HIV/AIDS-related causes through the sale of limited edition makeup collections endorsed by celebrities.

    Here are some of the best Viva Glam campaigns starring pop stars, in order of most ordinary to totally eye-popping.

    12. Fergie

    Like, why?

    11. Missy Elliott

    Via martehassel.blogg.no

    Pretty, boring.

    10. Christina Aguilera

    Shuddering at those eyebrows.

    9. Eve

    Via fanpop.com

    You can't even see her face!

    8. Debbie Harry

    Via bwgreyscale.com

    And here the make-up is kind of meh, but it doesn't matter because anything Debbie Harry is a part of is immediately legendary, so.

    7. Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin

    Via mtv.tv

    Who better to shill vibrant make-up than human Crayola box Nicki Minaj? Ricky Martin is an added hunky bonus.

    6. Boy George

    Via trash80s.com.br

    Pink and red discoloration on one's neck has never looked so chic.

    5. K.D. Lang

    Via trash80s.com.br

    This is so amazing because Lang is a famously non-lipstick lesbian, which makes this particular campaign extra witty and adorable.

    4. Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga

    Via trendland.com

    Blonde beauty.

    3. Lil Kim and Mary J. Blige

    Via bwgreyscale.com

    The strategically-placed mirror, spangled ankle cuff/shoe scenario, and baggy, thigh-high, WHITE LEATHER boots are just SOME of the reasons why this ad is everything.

    2. Shirley Manson, SIR ELTON JOHN FOR GOD'S SAKE, and, again, Mary J. Blige.

    Via macaidsfund.org

    Too much gorgeosity for one photo.

    1. And finally, RUPAUL. *bows down*

    Via worldofwonder.net

    Has anyone else ever looked this perfect in their LIVES? RuPaul was the very first Viva Glam spokesmodel and remains the one to beat. #rupaultaughtme
