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.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
