Celebs wear outrageous outfits at Cannes Film Festival 2016

Is this lingerie or a belly dancer's bad dress? A guest attended the closing ceremony of Cannes in this purple eyesore comprised of lace panels and ruffles.

We commend this guest for her bold color choice, but the one-shoulder heavy dress seemed completely disproportionate and almost too top heavy.  (Photo by Venturelli/WireImage)

We love Marion Cotillard, but this look has us scratching our heads. The whole look from head-to-toe is just off with it's dark, metallic, sheer and ruffled features. It almost looks like she combined every hot trend into an oversizes skirt and metallic top combo, resulting in an overall disastrous look. (Photo by Kristina Nikishina/Epsilon/Getty Images)

Susan Sarandon didn't have the most outrageous look on the red carpet, but it was definitely a touch on the revealing side. The nautical look definitely had people standing at attention.

The top half of Bella Hadid's outfit was sexy and stunning with a very revealing plunging neckline. However, the bottom half of her outfit has us thinking she looks like Carmen Miranda. The ruffled, side belt skirt is a lot of crazy.

Elena Lenina went for a lot of pink power in an outrageous gown and sky-high hair shaped like a heart. We don't know what's worse -- her wild 'do, her over-the-top dress, or her clutch which looks a bit like TNT.

That's definitely sheer! Model Elena Bazan posed in a very sheer, lace gown at the Majestic Hotel. The look left little to the imagination with only her chest covered up with what appears to be a pastie. Wowza!

This unfortunately show-stopper might be Elena Lenina worst outfit of the festival. The ill-fitting blue blazer, teamed with the two-toned, pink, tulle, ruffle skirt and the hair piece done to match has us screaming, "Ahh!"

Purple lipstick is definitely a bold choice for someone over the age of 10. Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai turned heads in her intricate ballgown with a fitted silhouette accented with a large skirt, but her funky lipcolor nearly ruined the entire ensemble. Don't you agree?

Elena Lenina had not one, but three outrageous looks at Cannes this year. This outfit started out okay with a demure gray dress with lovely draping, but her super curls atop her head made her look like a character out of Dr. Seuss.

Riley Keough's dress at the premiere of "American Honey" started out just fine -- and then it took a serious turn for the worse with the funky color combination. Putrid pink and yellow didn't do her any favors.

Model Kendall Jenner looked hotter than ever at the premiere of "From the Land of The Moon," but that doesn't make this look any less outrageous. The sheer bottome showed off her pert derriere and was just as shocking in the front.

Singer Li Yuchun looked a touch like the Wicked Witch of the West in this intense ballgown, which included a plunging velvet neckline and very intense sleeves.

Cannes Film Festival is known as the spot to show off your fashion prowess, but not every star is nailing the style game. Several big names, and some lesser known faces, have showed up to the French film festival in looks that will make your jaw drop in all the wrong ways.

This year's biggest fashion offender appears to be Russian TV personality Elena Lenina, who has been hitting the carpet in a series of wild looks that go from head to toe. All of her outfits begin with sky-high hair coiffed into varying styles and shapes and then finish with bright, wild dresses. Check out all of the wild looks above, and the arrivals at the film festival below.
