Following her split from NBA player Tony Parker in 2010, Eva Longoria decided to hit the Golden Globes red carpet in one of her most memorable looks. She stepped out in a breathtaking Zac Posen gown, proving that a revenge look doesn’t have to be all short hemlines and skin-baring cuts.
The actress exudes Hollywood glam in this classic and refined look. The mermaid silhouette, plunging v-neck, and elegant updo put Eva on the fashion map. In classic Princess Diana fashion, Eva Longoria went with an all-black look that perfectly complimented her skin tone and chic makeup. Forget Tony. Eva’s the true baller.
Love Don’t Cost a Thing
Jennifer Lopez looks great no matter what, but this 2011 revenge look is one for the books. The singer posed in this mod minidress during the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, after announcing that she and husband Marc Anthony were calling it quits. Allegedly, Marc Anthony was the one who initiated the separation.
Jennifer went all out with this tight, minimalist dress that hugged her signature curves. Her bright pink killer stilettos gave the whole look a fierce edge, which she played up with her smokey eye makeup. Coincidentally (or not), the dress was designed by the label Camilla & Marc.
An Atypical Dress for Reese
Reese Witherspoon turned heads and made headlines with this memorable revenge look. Instead of a sultry, all-black ensemble, Reese went for short, sweet, and bright yellow. She made her first public appearance after announcing her divorce from Ryan Phillippe at the 2007 Golden Globes. Instead of her usual cute and wholesome look, Reese turned up the heat.
If she was having a tough emotional time with the divorce, she didn’t let it show while on the red carpet. This Nina Ricci dress showed the tabloids that Reese was rising from the ashes of her divorce and starting a new era as a sultry fashionista. The strapless bodice showed more skin than Reese ever had before, telling us that she was back and better than ever.
A Model Revenge Dress
Clothing designer and model Nadia Bartel showed fans what was what when she hosted the 2019 Brownlow Medal event. She had just announced her divorce from former Australian soccer player Jimmy Bartel a few months earlier and wanted to show him what he was missing. She attended the Brownlow Medal in a stunning light blue J'Aton Couture gown that was teasingly semi-sheer.
The strapless dress featured a sky-high leg slit, allowing Nadia to show off her legs. Some people took issue with the fact that Nadia was hosting a soccer-related event after divorcing Jimmy, but fans cheered her on and showed their support on social media. Many praised her for getting back out there and stealing the show with her gorgeous revenge look.
Sun-Kissed and Unbothered
As we all know, Jennifer Lopez has more than a few revenge looks under her proverbial belt. And why shouldn’t she? Jennifer would look great wearing a burlap sack, so it only makes sense that she would want to flaunt it while she’s got it. The sherbet-orange Michael Kors gown that she wore to the 2004 Golden Globes was anything but heartbroken.
Around the time of this iconic look, Jennifer and Ben Affleck had just broken off their highly publicized engagement. “Bennifer” was no more. Jennifer wanted everyone to know that she was totally fine with it, at least on the outside. She looked sunkissed and glowing in this strappy dress that made her look like a real-life goddess.
