The Met Gala is one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Each red carpet gives celebs an opportunity to send a message through their avant-garde fashion choices. La La Anthony did just that when she attended solo in 2017. She showed up without her husband, NBA player Carmelo Anthony, in a showstopping black gown.
The dress, designed by Thai Nguyen Atelier, was completely sheer and embellished with delicate crystal veins and a tiered skirt. This see-through dress is not for the faint of heart, but La La was up to the challenge. “Unbreakable #metgala” she captioned her Instagram post featuring the gorgeous revenge dress.
An Absolute Cougar
Diane Kruger and her long-time partner Joshua Jackson called it quits in 2016. The couple had been together for a whopping ten years and were considered one of the few “successful” relationships in Hollywood. Sadly, their relationship just wasn’t meant to be. After publicly announcing their breakup, Diane did what many of us do when newly single: she tried her darndest to look as hot as possible. Obviously, it worked.
Diane is an absolutely gorgeous person, so it’s no surprise that all of her revenge looks from the time are stunning. She wore this shimmery silver minidress to the Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Ironically, her neck was the most covered part of her body. That dress leaves little to the imagination. If we looked like Diane Kruger, we’d definitely be rocking this look, too.
A Disick Diss
Before Travis Barker, there was Scott Disick. If you know anything about the Kardashians, you know that Kourtney’s years-long relationship with the father of her three children had its ups and downs. After documenting their entire relationship on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kourtney and Scott split up for good in 2015. That summer, Kourtney didn’t hold back in showing Scott what he was missing.
Kourtney had so many amazing revenge looks that tabloids started saying Kourtney was rocking her “revenge body” instead of simple one-off looks. We’d have to agree. No matter what Kourtney wore in 2015, she looked amazing. She wore this bright pink halter jumpsuit to the MTV VMAs and totally slayed. She looked elegant, chic, and effortlessly sexy. Bye, Scott.
Pretty in Yellow
2016 was a big fashion year for Selena Gomez. She really came into her own and started rocking some incredible high-fashion looks. Her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber may have helped her gain some inspiration in the fashion department because 2016 has some of her best revenge outfits on record.
When Selena attended the WE Day California event in April, rumors were swirling about whether she and Justin were back together. Instead of addressing the rumors, Selena was all sunshine and rainbows with this bright yellow duster jacket. She somehow made some casual jeans and a white tank look effortlessly chic.
Nobody Compares to Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige knows how to rock a revenge era. She reentered the public eye in 2017 after splitting from her husband and recording a brand new album. She used the breakup to her advantage, letting fans and her ex alike eat their hearts out as she revealed her toned abs and immaculate legs.
When she performed a song at the BET Awards, she wore this breathtaking silver outfit that featured a shimmering bikini top, platform heels, and an intricately constructed bikini bottom. “Getting older is inevitable, but aging is optional,” she told “Healthy Living” in an interview at the time. Wiser words have never been spoken, Ms. Blige.
