The Golden Globes are this Sunday, and we can’t wait. The show signals the official kickoff to awards season, which also happens to mean the beginning of red carpet season—our favorite time of the year.

But for every breathtaking gown that makes its way down the red carpet (and to the top of worldwide best-dressed lists) there’s also a slew of total misses—dresses that have us scratching our heads and wondering WTF the starlets (and, more often, their stylists) were thinking.

We know fashion is totally subjective, and we love that—the infamous ballerina dress Lara Flynn Boyle wore to the 2003 Golden Globes was a choice, and it was at least memorable—but we would like to forget Jessica Alba‘s boy-band white tux in 2002, or Jessica Chastain‘s ill-fitting halter gown in 2013. Among these ladies, and many more, we’ve definitely seen our fair share of Golden Globes fashion faux-pas.

Blake Lively, 2009

Paris Hilton, 2004

It is Paris, and it was 2004, but Paris definitely should have nixed the prom theme and gone with something a little cooler—at the time, she was it.

Beyoncé, 2003

There was a dark, dark period of time when Bey's wardrobe choices were determined by her mother, House of Dereon creator Tina Knowles. That is all.

Okay, fine, she gets a pass because she's Courtney freaking Love.

Michelle Williams, 2011

Michelle normally never makes a false step, which is why this beige daisy dress is especially disappointing.

Lara Flynn Boyle, 2003

Boyle's ballerina ensemble is the stuff of legend, but that doesn't exactly make it understandable.
