It's difficult to hate on the sartorial choices of writers because they typically stay away from the spotlight and tend not to have stylists and/or the attendant glam squad. That being said, everyone at the Writers Guild Awards was outdone by a 12-year-old girl.

I don't know who the fuck Nadeea is so I Googled her and learned that she's a singer that actually nobody else really knows either. However, it's universally understood that she's generally the worst dressed at any given event. (Link NSFW due to areola.)
