VOTE: Do these celebs need a MAKEOVER?

Either their looks are done to death, or they're constantly slipping up with the wrong styles on the red carpet -- vote and tell us whether you think these famous ladies need a makeover!

In the following pages, we bring you a bevy of beauties whose sense of fashion seems to be taking a consistent beating of late.

Vote for their looks and let us know whether you think they need to go in for a complete appearance overhaul -- new hairdo, new stylist, new trends and of course, a new wardrobe!

Veena Malik

The Pakistani bombshell is as alluring as ever in the glossies, but when she decides to step out (and cover up!), her choices couldn't be more wrong. Too much makeup, dowdy dresses and tacky pink seem to be Veena's favourite picks and inevitably, she ends up looking a complete wreck.

Britney Spears

Pop princess Britney's penchant for lifeless blonde hair extensions, peeptoe boots and thigh-grazing, body-fitting outfits has to be nipped in the bud! Instead of highlighting her super-toned curves, she ends up looking too stocky.

When a 20-something siren chooses gowns and hairdos that would suit a 50-year-old, you know something's wrong. Whatever happened to the 'oomph' factor, Jacqueline? Or is Simi Garewal your secret stylist?

Christina Aguilera

Here's someone we wish would dress a little older! Christina, you're no longer a waifish, petite teenybopper and we do wish you'd realise it. The peroxide blonde mane, the red lipstick and the ill-fitting outfits with unsightly bulges are almost becoming a trademark!

Groan. One of the most beautiful women in the world, but Sush stopped dressing the part a long time ago! If it's not hideous bling, it's jarring colours or unflattering cuts, but we haven't seen her sizzle in a loooong time.

Mariah Carey

Diva Mariah has snapped into good shape again after giving birth to twins last year. Now if only she would step out in ensembles that complemented her body, instead of ones that draw attention to its flaws.

Gauri Khan

No, it's not that Mrs Khan is expecting again. It's just that she insists on stepping out in bandage number after bandage number, even though they all only succeed in having her look terribly out of shape. It's time for a completely new look, we've seen this one enough times!

Nicki Minaj

Not everyone can get away with crazy couture like Lady Gaga -- and even she can't, sometimes. So we wish the world's most successful female rapper would let her skill do the talking (pardon the pun) instead of her fruitloop fashions. Really Nicki, they're not amusing anybody and your lyrics are too explicit for children to be added to the fanbase!

Ekta Kapoor

You can't see them, but Ekta did wear her favourite, butt-ugly pair of platforms underneath this, er, 'gown'. And aside from it being downright tacky, she added on a cape to worsen matters. Czarina of telly she may be, but most times she dresses more like Gandalph the Grey -- in mysterious robes!

Lindsay Lohan

With Lindsay, it's not so much the clothes as the rest of her. The actress seems to have gone under the knife and her hard-partying lifestyle is taking a toll on her face, making her look old beyond her years. Add to that the lacklustre outfits and boom -- makeover time for sure!

Mugdha Godse

You'd think with her modelling background, good taste in clothes would have rubbed off on the starlet. But no such luck -- we've yet to see Mugdha look like a supermodel on the red carpet, instead of off-trend and ordinary, as always.

Amber Rose

The glamour model's voluptuous figure drives men all over the world wild with desire, but if she'd tame her wardrobe a tad we'd be grateful. Amber's always in skintight, cleavage-heavy clothes that make only one statement -- unclassy.

Tabu

Considering she's one of the nation's most talented actresses, we wish Tabu was a little less unassuming, at least fashion-wise. We've seen her glam up so rarely -- she usually prefers this kind of plain Jane appearance!

When you're 25 and aim to look 63, something's wrong. Particularly if it's not a one-off thing and even more so if you're running a fashion empire. Are you listening, Mary-Kate?

A fashion designer's best friend you may be, Urmila, but we're wondering why Manish Malhotra has not staged an intervention for you yet! It's dearly required -- can't remember the last time you laid off the bling and opted for timeless elegance.

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten seems to have a thing for retro glam, but since when did granny gowns (and hair) become haute couture? The lovely actress should drop the vintage trend like a rock, pronto -- it clearly does her no favours!

Payal obviously doesn't own a mirror, because no one in their right mind would step out of the house looking like that. We've never seen her in anything extraordinary -- unless it's extraordinarily disastrous!

She runs one of the biggest fashion empires in the world, but we're wondering when the Versace head honcho is going to reinvent her own look. The atrocious hair, the makeup overkill, the bling -- it's time to drop it all, Signora Donatella!

And finally we come to R'n'B singer Ashanti, who likes to flash so much flesh we wonder why she wears anything at all. This particular number is by Falguni and Shane Peacock, but...sigh. The design (or lack of it!) speaks for itself.
