The awkwardly over-the top, eclectic and later-regrettable phase of fashion is inevitable for any teen idol.
It appears now that Justin Bieber's in the thick of his "look back later and cringe" era. The 18-year-old pop star stepped out Wednesday in London wearing an oversize, studded, neon-yellow hat (!) and purple leopard-print pants.
Of course, this ensemble (reminiscent of Justin Timberlake's double-denim, cowboy hat-wearing period) isn't half as bad as the Biebs' wearing a gas mask earlier this week.
Hey, you live, you learn. Still, we're patiently awaiting the day Bieber graduates to a Suit & Tie.
BABY BABY BABY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
