It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But not everyone is looking their best.

Fashionistas from across the world flock to New York to see designers’ spring-summer 2013 collections, but before the festivities officially kick off, celebs celebrated their most stylish peers at the 9th Annual Style Awards on Sept. 5, 2012 at The Stage at Lincoln Center.

And although Smash star (and American Idol Season 5 runner-upKatharine McPhee won the Female One to Watch Award on Wednesday, her pattern-heavy red carpet outfit was questionable.

Kath’s bright, multi-printed, short-sleeved Peter Pilotto mini-dress (from the Resort 2013 collection) clashed with her zig-zag patterned R&Y Augousti clutch and teal and gold Charlotte Olympia Dolly pumps. And to us, her attire seemed like it would be more appropriate at an outdoor, daytime event rather than inside at an awards show.

Do you think Katherine’s dress was a Smashing success, or was it a total flop? Weigh in below!
