We're pretty convinced that if you had replaced the Times Square Ball with Fergie, in this insane dress, you'd have the same full-on sparkle effect.
We just can't understand why the new mom traded her typical rocker look for this Rubin Singer diva dress. We expect this bedazzled column gown on Mariah Carey, XTina, or even Beyoncé, but The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman more commonly dresses like Steven Tyler than the big belting divas!
Thrilled as we are to see the "Big Girls Don't Cry" singer get a little glitzy, we're not in love with this design. The high mock collar literally makes it look like she doesn't have a neck! We know she already has her post-baby body back, yet the simple middle doesn't cinch in her waist. And much as we love basic black, it's a little too dark on the golden-skinned celeb.
We prefer the lucky Mrs. Josh Duhamel in something flowy, fringed or tie-dyed. So here's hoping the last day of 2013 was the last time she'll bring out the diva duds.
