Top 5 Worst Trends of All Time

5. Celebrities unique names for their children

Don’t these celebs understand their child has to live with this name for the rest of their life.  Like a cheesy character from the year’s worst horror movie–or worse like Rebecca Black’s one-hit-wonder, these horrific names will haunt these children well into adulthood.

Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Rob Morrow’s daughter, Tu Morrow
  • Gwen Stefani’s daughter: Zuma Nesta Rock
  • Bob Geldof and Paula Yates daughters:  FiFi Trixiebelle, Peaches Honeyblosson, Pixie

4. Jeep Denim Interiors

Who decided it would be a good idea for the interior of the car to be constructed of the same fabric my pants are made of?  Better yet, why are some of these gems still around today?  The black, grey or blue denim interior of early Jeeps — and AMC’s Javelin and Gremlin among others — remains a fad that, like the pants proper, just won’t go away for good. While original Jeep denim interiors are rare, the Levis custom interior — complete with trademark copper buttons and rivets — offered in Jeep models in the mid-to-late 1970s is in high demand among enthusiasts and on auction websites.

3. Fake Wood Paneling for Cars

Adding to the horrible car trends, is the fake wood paneling from the 1960′s.  Made popular by Mike Brandy himself, wood paneling was a hit until the 1980′s and surged back onto the market in the 1990′s.  Enthusiasts are adorning their Smart cars, Hummers, Ford Edges and, perhaps most commonly, their PT Cruisers with the distinctive retro vinyl paneling.  YUCK!

2. Bedazzled Hairstyles

If you went to prom in 1997 and your updo wasn’t bedazzled with a thousand butterfly clips, you were probably the one skulking solo on the sidelines when “End of the Road” came on. Be it tiny braids, stick-on gems or cascades of crimping, hot 90′s hair was all about embellishment and excess.  These trends spurred on business for the crimpers, hair braiders, and Conair hair clips… but come on, how many trends can one head of hair hold.

1. Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress

At first glance, many viewers may have thought that Lady Gaga was dressing on the conservative side for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards… that is until it became apparent that her outfit was made of raw meat.  The 50-pound dress was created out of 100% meat from a local butcher shop near Los Angeles, California.  Lady Gaga remarked that it was the most comfortable dress she wore all night.   Well at least you got something out of that disaster
