This year was jam-packed with what-the-heck-is-going-on-here red-carpet beauty moments that made our jaws hit the floor--or just really confused us. Here are the top 10 craziest celebrity beauty looks of 2012, in no particular order. (Oh, and in the spirit of solidarity with the stars we're picking on, I included a couple instances where we originally actually called the look a Do before promptly being told otherwise by our readers. Hey, just like these celebs, we can't get it right every time!)

1. Jennifer Love Hewitt starred in When Fake Eyelashes ATTACK! Seriously--these enormous, spidery fake lashes could scare a Kardashian.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today.
