Mariah Carey, however, did not seem to understand balance at the 2009 New York Film Festival's screening of <i>Precious</i>, where she left very little to the imagination. Sorry, Mariah, but this look is trashy.

Lauren Conrad's minidress at the 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards was flattering and fun. She kept the look sassy by cinching the waist and wearing a fuller skirt.

LiLo stunned us all with a dress that was surprisingly chic. Unfortunately, white dress + spray tan = oompa loompa effect. We commend your effort, regardless, Lindsay.

Quite the sultry duo, <i>High School Musical</i> meets <i>Transformers</i> as Vanessa Hudgens and Megan Fox show off their side-by-side minidresses. We love the midnight blue number on Vanessa, but why does Megan look like she wore her dress through a car wash?

We're not sure if it's the inner-thigh cellulite or the drooping bows down her left side, but this dress is doing Sharon Stone no favors.

We want to applaud Rumer Willis for taking a fashion risk with this stained-glass inspired minidress, but we can't. It's just too hard on the eyes.

Oh, Mischa Barton. We can only hope that this hot mess of an outfit is a costume and not something you picked out on your own accord.

Oh, Taraji P. Henson. Didn't anyone tell you that once you've been nominated for an Oscar, you don't have to Scarlett O'Hara your minidresses out of curtains anymore?

Where did you think the nickname Sasha Fierce came from? Beyonce sparkles in this curve-hugging minidress that sports a train. Definitely an improvement from the Sharon Stone version seen earlier.

Geri Halliwell has come a long way since her days as the tacky one-piece clad Ginger Spice. Whatever caused the wake up call, we're grateful, because with a flattering gold shimmer and a daring scoop top, we're happy to look at Geri in this dress all day long!

There are so many things that could have gone wrong with this dress, but why does it look so right on <i>The Big Bang Theory</i>'s Caley Cuoco? The Native American inspired print combined with the pockets somehow look...dare we say it? Adorable.

It seems that no matter how much time passes, Mariah just can't let go of the black minidress. Let it go, Mimi. Let it go.

Who invited Auntie Mame to dinner? Wait...that's Kate Moss you say? The roman inspired metallic minidress is quite a stunner, but the turban kills it for us, evoking images of an especially stylish grandmother.

We acknowledge that Khloe Kardashian looks great since dropping those extra pounds, but just because she's no longer eating black-and-white cookies doesn't mean she has to dress like one.

Milla Jovovich turns up the sass with this minidress that sports a little surprise in the back that's so cute, it makes up for the fact that she looks like a walking doily from the front.

Latin popstar Paulina Rubio takes an already too-'80s-for-our-liking hot pink dress and makes it even more obnoxious with some horribly mismatched accessories. Yuck.

These stars are so wrapped up in themselves. Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Stam, and Reese Witherspoon all seem taken with these bandage dresses, but the question is, does it work?

Bar Rafaeli is so hot, she could make a dress made of tinfoil look good, which is fortunate, because that's kind of what this minidress looks like.

Does anyone else see visions of a young Courtney Love here? <i>Gossip Girl</i>'s Taylor Momsen moonlights as lead singer of the band, The Pretty Reckless. It's quite apropos when you consider her fashion choices.

Pretty in pink? Not so much, Amanda Bynes. When will Hollywood learn that a brightly colored dress on an over-tanned body is blinding?
