From Mallika Sherawat to Mariah Carey, here's a look at the least stylish ladies of the past year from India and across the world!

We already brought you the best-dressed celebrities and the biggest red carpet fashion risks of 2012.

Now, here's a look at the spectacular sartorial disasters that ruled the headlines this past year -- be warned, it's not a pretty sight, even if the contenders are all beautiful women!

Mallika Sherawat

With her Hollywood obsession, you'd think Miss Sherawat would hire a world-class stylist so that her international appearances would enhance her image.

No such luck -- if she's not flashing some serious side cleavage, she's donning gowns with hoods that were probably the 'in' thing for Greek priestesses back in 500BC.

RiRi is also fond of flaunting her bootylicious bod, but came up with some spectacular fashion fails last year. Case in point: wearing a pyjama suit on the red carpet.

Sam has dared to be different from the rest of the B-Town brigade, we'll give her that. Unfortunately, most of her style risks have bombed bigtime, like this citrus maxi skirt and glittery knee-length sleeveless jacket.

More undressed than worst-dressed, this one! American model Erin thinks nothing of stepping out in ensembles that can make a bikini look voluminous and this is just one of her many jaw-dropping 'outfits' of 2012.

Sigh. This is just one of several terrible choices. Mrs Dutt needs to look to her fellow Bollywood wives for inspiration, like maybe Suzanne Roshan or Mehr Jesia Rampal.

Mary-Kate Olsen

When you're 26 and wind up at an event looking 62, you know there's a problem! Mary-Kate runs a flourishing fashion empire worth millions along with twin sister Ashley, but that hasn't done anything for her personal sense of style.

Manyata Dutt's BFF is also on this list, thanks to her penchant for all things low, short, tight and eye-searingly bright. Ameesha stands out at most dos -- and we mean like a sore thumb.

Nicki Minaj

She may go hoarse denying it, but it's obvious that this diminutive bottom-heavy rapper wants to compete with Lady Gaga in the bizarre style stakes. Unfortunately, where Gaga comes across as creative and artistic and gets the fashion world buzzing, Nicki just comes across as a pinata.

Meet Nicki's Indian counterpart. If it's sparkly, ugly and utterly unwearable, you can be sure Rakhi will snap it up for her next big event.

Taylor Momsen

The actress-singer looks like a million dollars, but dresses like ten. Taylor's obsession with goth get-ups has her looking like a Morticia Addams impersonator most of the time.

Tiaras are for five-year-olds. Prom dresses are for teenagers. And heels like those are for...nevermind! Let's just say Anusha has not met with approval in 2012 -- let's hope this is a better year for her.

Sometimes celebrities try to do high-fashion and end up looking highly hilarious. Like Ciara in this atrocious get-up. Thank heavens that jacket isn't white or she'd be pinned to a stretcher and hauled off!

Looks like she's seen a ghost or like a ghost? Hard to tell with that terrible makeup and one-sided sack. Whatever were you thinking, Tara?

She's a world-famous supermodel, but Polish beauty Anja had us shrinking in horror from this terrible slashed number. Protruding hip bones and ribs are not a good look -- someone looks like she needs a sandwich (or ten!).

Even a Chanel handbag can't save you when you're badly dressed, Preeti.

That shapeless dress and those blah shoes are just a sampling of the many 'ugh' outfits she's been seen in this past year.

Mariah Carey

It's not so much Mariah's outfits as the fact that none of them are ever suited to her body type. Enough of the heaving cleavage and two-sizes-small dresses, dear -- they have you looking like a wrestler most of the time!

We have no advice whatsoever for Payal. After taking in this -- er -- 'ensemble', it looks like she's beyond help. Completely and utterly so.

Another model who likes maiming fashion. No Jessica, not even you and your amazing figure (that we're seeing rather too much of here) can carry off garments like this.

When you're a celebrity, you dress like one. Apparently, Mugdha never got that memo -- she loves wearing unremarkable, mediocre outfits and teaming them with equally boring accessories. Learn to turn a few heads already!

And finally we come to former Pussycat Dolls band member Melody, who thinks less is more. That's true, but not in the way she thinks -- the less you put your wares on display, the more classy you look!
