While I love to give helpful fashion advice on this blog, one of my favorite things to do is showcase and talk about the bizarre beauty and fashion trends. 2012 was no stranger to oddness, creepiness and unusual things. I culled through all my blog posts from the past year and present to you now, my 10 weirdest fashion trends of 2012, in no particular order.

1- The C-string
According to the Cstring website- “The CString is a completely new and exciting innovation in lingerie. Say goodbye to panty line and uncomfortable straps. Say hello to a sexy new freedom.”
Oh, and the site also claims that use of the Cstring can help you from getting tan lines. Um, does this mean that we’re expected to wear this contraption on its own out in pubic…um, I mean public???
Watch as this Leslie woman from the show “Big Rich Texas” minimizes something as sacred as a baptism to be all about the, not one but two, designer dresses,the poolside white-party rivaling P-Diddy’s and the multi-tiered cake.
To create a bagel head, a small needle and 400 cc’s of saline is placed into the forehead to create bump that resembles a hard hit to the head. To get the full “Bagel Head” effect, the technician then presses his thumb on the lump to create the indentation. Why? I don’t know.
Looks like a harmless t-shirt until you realize the neck-hole is a huge vagina. I can’t. Excuse me while I got hurl. I guess the c-section version of this would be a boatneck?
The Face-Kini was the latest craze to hit China’s beaches to protect the sunbathers from sun. Are you as creeped out by the image as I am?
It’s bad enough that we can’t get enough people to commit to being organ donors, but in 2012 Kerry Greville said she believed that we can and should extract chemical components from cremated remains. I’m all for recycling, but I just don’t know how I feel about wearing a coat made out of my dead Uncle Louie.
Can this image get any more creepy and disgusting looking? Thankfully, stiletto implants are not a real thing. However, I’m sure if there was enough of a demand some plastic surgeon somewhere would do it. The fact that someone even imagined this is disgusting enough.
8- The Beardo
Well, here’s something that no man should wear…EVER! It’s called the Beardo, for obvious reasons, and is the first bearded beanie to keep you head and face warm. I mean, come on dude, how cold can you possibly be to look this stupid?
According the the product description the iMaxi (get it?) “has a durable vinyl outer layer and plush, quilted-cotton sleeve, the iMaxi helps keep your iPad clean and dry. Plus, the advanced wing design wraps snugly around your device, so your iPad always stays where it should. Best of all, it shields it from all those unsightly and embarrassing data leaks that would make any motherboard worry!” You get the choice of all white…or a red interior. Oh, now that’s disgusting!
10- Scary Shoes
These shoes, which is a commentary on the impossibly high standards of beauty, are named “Scary Beautiful.” Scary, yes. Beautiful? Well that is debatable. Click the link to view of video of a woman trying to walk in them. It’s disturbing.
Ah yes, 2012 has been filled with creepy and intriguing oddities and some of the weirdest fashion trends. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in 2013. One thing you can count on is that I’ll be blogging about them!
