Who is the reigning 'Idol' Fashion Victim: Paula, Kara, or Randy?

Idoljudges_lI had difficulty concentrating during the ”holding room of doom” portion of last night’s American Idol episode. Maybe it was the blinding glare coming off Paula Abdul’s torso-sized metallic necklace, which was so cumbersome the ”Straight Up” singer seemed to be struggling to keep her head up. Or perhaps it was Kara’s lace-and-fringe blouse, which kind of resembled a crow caught in a giant spider web. Then again, it could’ve been The Dawg, who proved there is a look more frightful than the painted-on-tuxedo t-shirt: Behold the appliqu├ęd-necklaces V-neck! Who looked most absurd?

    in these tough economic times, we must try to be sensitive and understand that the wardrobe department for AI, due to budgetary constraints, has now been relegated to shopping in the bargain bin over at Forever 21. :-)

    Oh dear. This is such a difficult vote. All were ridiculous. As much as I would love to give my vote to Randy’s chains, I have to go with Paula’s Tin Man necklace. She could barely hold her head up wearing that monstrosity – and I think on occasion failed at that.

  • Fashion Diva

    Anyone know whether Paula’s necklace is part of her new jewelry collection she is selling on QVC? If so, I’ve got to tune in to see how much of a train wreck that collection is!

  • Tom Strong

    Absolutely horrible.

  • smoochie

    Kara is hot and a welcome addition to the show. Paula should be phased out of the show and sent back to rehab.

  • LisaMama

    Hmm, I kinda liked Paula’s outfit — it was a pretty green and the necklace made a statement (though I don’t know quite what it was saying). Kara just looked…wrong, and Randy was only a little weird. My vote goes to Kara.

  • Kim

    Honestly, Kara’s outfit bothered me the entire episode. I just thought it was so inappropriate for a woman like her. As for Paula, I think that she’s known for wearing outfits that people deem awful. It’s become who she is now. And Randy, well.. who cares? He’s a man and men usually don’t give a damn of what they are wearing, so why should we?

  • Minutiae

    Paula looks like she’s about to fall over in that screencap. Heh.

  • pinkpanda

    their outfits were all hideous!

  • Stephanie T.

    I pitty the fool who wears that shirt, Randy!

  • rerun

    Without a doubt Paula. I could not not look at that hubcap she was wearing. i didnt even notice what the other two were wearing. It looked like a windchime.

  • Stephanie T.

    And as for the other two:
    Kara: Madonna called and said, “just because you went on EBay and bid on a costume that I wore in 1984, does not mean that you should wear it!”
    Paula: Heavy Metal is a style of rock music, not a piece of jewlery. This is why you are slouching.

  • Gregor1

    Paula looked like she had a huge piece of shrapnel in her chest. Did the Tin Man explode in front of her?

  • Brian

    Kara and Neleha from Survivor Marquesas. Separated at birth

    Hey Randy where is your china wall dog! It looks the best on you!
