These stars are among the most recognisable in the world, although you wouldn’t know it from their dubious courtroom sketches. 

Celebrities like Rihanna, Katy Perry and Catherine Zeta Jones have all had their famously flawless visages butchered by an artist’s pen, leaving them looking decidedly ordinary. Or even – dare we say it – ugly. 

The latest victims of an unforgiving portraitist are the Kardashian family, who are appearing at a downtown Los Angeles court to defend themselves in a $108 million defamation lawsuit brought by Blac Chyna.

The sketches of Kim, Khloe, Kylie and Kris are so bad that they have gone viral, with Twitter users claiming the artist must ‘hate’ the Kardashians to make them look so ‘deformed’. 

It isn’t helped by the fact that the Kardashian clan are among the most photographed women in the world, so even the smallest error in their plumped up lips or meticulously defined brows jumps out. 

Mona Shafer Edwards, the veteran artist behind the viral sketches, defended her work, telling DailyMail.com that her job isn’t as simple as some might think.

But, as these courtroom sketches prove, she’s far from the only one who has failed to capture Hollywood good looks on paper. 

Here, FEMAIL rounds up a selection of the most questionable sketches for you to put your star-spotting abilities to the test. Scroll down to see them all – then check your answers at the bottom…
