The 10 worst looks from Toronto Fashion Week

As per usual, we're following up the top 10 looks from Toronto Fashion Week with my picks for the ten worst ones, because you've got to take the good with the bad and the happy with the very, very sad. Of course, "worst" is subjective, so feel free to disagree and maybe check out the other more promising looks in our Style section. Here are the 10 worst looks from Toronto Fashion Week.

toronto fashion week melissa nepton

Maybe each of these Melissa Nepton pieces aren't so terrible on their own, but when paired together I just kept thinking "bag lady, bag lady, bag lady."

toronto fashion week bustle

When trend forecasters told Bustle tourist-wear would be all the rage next season, he took it a tad too literally and ended up with some sort of safari bird-watching costume mess.

toronto fashion week joe fresh

I tried to forget those god-awful nylon leggings from Urban Behaviour with jeans printed on them, but Joe Fresh did a really good job of bringing them back. In gaudy gold, no less.

toronto fashion week lauren bagliore

Perhaps it's the frumpy skirt length, modestly suffocating neckline, slicked veil-like hair, or the general discomfort in the model's face, but this dress from Mercedes Benz Start-Up contender Lauren Bagliore reminded me of a nun. In a bad way.

Not even Pat Cleveland could save this chaotic, optical illusion-esque look from Joe Fresh. In fact, I think her sassy walk in combination with the print made me a tad more nauseous.

toronto fashion week soia kyo

This Soia & Kyo outfit must have been part of a competition where they had to throw on as many different fabrics together without knocking over the model. They won.

A Bustle ensemble inspired by Van Pelt, the hunter from Jumanji. On acid.

toronto fashion week lucian matis

I totally understand the conceptual/creative aspect that Lucian Matis was gunning for, but this dress looked as though a sexy nurse costume met the Spice Girls and then imploded.

toronto fashion week evan biddell

I could handle the pop-art prints at Evan Biddell, but when it was all over a floor-grazing dress with a hood and a super low cowl neck, my eyes felt more than a little bit violated.

Joe Fresh brought out some sort of textured ski jacket paired with...um...underwear. What type of weather is this getup appropriate for, exactly?
