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.

5. Tyra Banks scared the crap out of everyone with this up-to-the-brows eye makeup (and creepy exaggeration of her signature smize).

6. Demi Lovato took the wrapped-ponytail concept to uncomfortable new heights. Was that a leather whip in her hair?

7. January Jones showed us all how to shrink our eyes by wearing tons of shimmery eyeshadow sans eyeliner.

8. A cow came along and licked/gnawed Zac Efron's head, but even though his hair looked ridiculous, you still wanted to make out with him.

9. Debra Messing's lash curler turned against her.

So there you have them--the most memorable celebrity beauty misses of 2012. We can only imagine the wacky moments that 2013 will bring, but in the meantime, I'm pretty sure that image of Tyra Banks will continue to haunt our dreams.

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
