(Fergie on the red carpet with Wild Orchid in 1998) This foily polyester disaster is ill-fitting and unflattering; when combined with the unfortunate late-90's trend of platform flip-flops, we have a messy blunder. This matchy matchy Destiny's Childish fit becomes instantly dated, and Fergie soon moves on to her solo career.

At the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards, Fergie drops the sidekick-b-girl facade. The outfit remains playful yet sexual. The nod to 1950's poodle skirt culture mixed with a wordplay on a legume is ridiculous but oddly likable.

In 2006 Fergie reverts to her original b-girl but adds some fancy footwear and a softer hairdo. The wavering between cutie to looking like she's about to do a head-spin dies down after the release of her solo album in 2006.

Another trend that received a lot of love/flak was that of the high-waisties. Fergie raised some conflicting opinions about this outfit, but overall these pants combined with another confusing fashion trend at the time--suspenders serving no purpose--flatter her figure.
