Whether dressing up or down, your natural inclination is to always look your best. We're pretty sure no one walks out of the house purposefully looking like a fashion disaster. But according to Sienna Miller, bad dressing sometimes goes beyond an occasional poor choice -- it's a conscious form of rebellion. In this month's Nylon, she claims her "fashion icon" status drove her crazy - so much, that she started wearing bad clothes to get away from the label. Remember the leotard with no pants? She swears that was part of it. Likewise, when Mary-Kate Olsen was hailed as a "fashion hero" by the Times, she adopted even crazier looks just to see whether pajamas-under-fur coats would really catch fire. They did. And when Uma Thurman defended her 2004 Oscar gown, a billowing Christian Lacroix number, she used the old "stand out" argument: "Everyone had it down to such a perfect tee in their spaghetti-strapped, sequined or chiffon, body-hugging, gym-hour promoting things. You get bored. That's when you have to say, 'I will be worst dressed.'" That's fine for famous people. But if you're "rebelling" against the safe masses by playfully donning an aerobics outfit to a swank party, is there a way to regain your usual fashion cred, or will you be black-listed as a leo'tard forever? -- NATALIE GUEVARA
