One thing we never do is to doubt the photographers’ ideas or concepts for their photo shoots for celebrities. However, we can’t help but cringe and laugh at these photo shoots that some celebrities have done in the past. And it makes us wonder why they agreed to do these photo shoots in the first place. Of course, not all of them are bad but some are just so bizarre that it’s hard to imagine anyone who think they looked good in these photo shoots.

Forget about candid shots, just take a look at these non-candid shots and try not to laugh or cringe at all:

1. Leonardo DiCarpio


First things first, why was he holding those bananas in one hand and a melon in another? Second of all, are those real fruits? And most importantly, what is the concept for the photo shoot?! Until today, we still can’t figure out why he was involved in these strange photo shoots in the past. Very puzzling indeed.

2. Matthew Gray Gubler

Oh, Gubler. We hope you have a jazzy Thursday too! Don’t forget to put your hands up for Friday and if you’ve got a feeling that you’re going to have a bad day on Saturday, Gubler got a bad case of Saturdays too. But that’s okay because eventually he will get a magical Sunday! Having Monday blues? Cuddle with your pets or your loved ones because it’s cuddly Monday! When Tuesday comes, just relax so that you can have a wistful Wednesday.

Thanks for the heads-up, Gubler! 🙂

3.  Ryan Gosling

Move over, Gotye! Ryan Gosling is the king of camouflage and there’s no way you can see him as a competitor.

4. 2NE1’s CL

We love CL. We really do. After all, she is one of our favourite stylish K-Pop stars to follow on Instagram. But with this furry outfit, we just weren’t sure how to feel about the whole photo shoot she did for Jeremy Scott, in collaboration with i-D magazine. Perhaps it’s a form of art or tribute to Sesame Street’s Big Bird?

Oh hey! It’s the most wonderful time of year so let’s put string some Christmas lights on our outfits. Because why the hell not, right?

6. Mischa Barton

“The O.C.” actress Mischa Burton just had to follow in Lady Gagy’s footstep because apparently, raw meat is the new black? But instead of wearing a meat dress, Burton tried to bite off the raw meat while posing for the fashion photo shoot.

7. Mila Kunis

It’s okay, Mila Kunis. All is forgiven because you were in a commercial for Lisa Frank! Plus, you looked adorable with that plushie in your arms! Maybe someone needs to fix that hair, or the outfit, or the whole photo shoot.

8. Jennifer Anniston

The hand gesture says it all. Jennifer Anniston had no idea what she was doing there either.

9. David Duchovny

Too much porn, Agent Mulder. Way too much. And also, why are you wearing those silver leggings while trying to balance yourself on that giant yoga ball?

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

That pose. That hair. ‘Nuff said.
