The 10 Ugliest Christmas Sweaters Ever Worn by Celebrities
Ah, the ugly Christmas sweater. Such a storied, dubious article of only seasonally appropriate clothing. So widely seen, so widely regretted. They are worn by the masses — both the hipster variety and your elderly relatives who just think they look cute as heck — and, as we know, celebrities are just like us, just with bigger checkbooks and much prettier faces. So, in this time of seasonal cheer, let us revel in the unfortunate bunches of holiday-related scratchy yarn that sometimes finds itself gathering around the torsos of beloved (or, well, at least recognizable) celebrities.

Ryan Gosling as Lars Lindstrom
Oh, Gosling. We knew we could count on you for this list. No adorable hipster can resist an ugly Christmas sweater.

Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter
It hurts our souls and our childhoods to call this one ugly, but it IS a Christmas sweater and it DOES say in the books that it is a lumpy one.

Kevin McHale As Artie, Feat. Chewbacca

We’re honestly surprised we didn’t find a group pic of all of One Direction in various semi-matching Christmas-themed atrocities.
