We really, truly hoped Heidi Klum's same-color combo was the last we'd see of something so matchy-matchy this year, but Fergie swooped in just before Christmas with an equally horrendous ensemble.
We get that red is the shade of the season, but there are ways to tastefully incorporate a piece or two into a look without going overboard like these two ladies. For once we're flipping this face-off on it's head and asking who looks worse, the Project Runway star in her skirt and blouse or the "Here I Come" singer in her skintight pants and jacket.
We feel like the battle can be waged in three categories:
1. The mismatch effect. Simply, which reds look worst together? While the new mom may be wearing too much of the shade, her individual pieces go together much better than the America's Got Talent judge who appeared to be colorblind when choosing that skirt.
2. The style, color aside. In a different palette, Heidi's look would be more unique and chic. Fergie is essentially wearing work-out clothes with a giant coat.
3. The footwear. Red thigh highs or red booties? Booties all the way, but only because Heidi's option looks like it belongs in the Broadway show Kinky Boots.
So Heidi wins, by losing. Or is it that Fergie loses by winning? Let's just make it easy and say they both lose, but Fergie loses less. Agree or disagree?
