A lot of people know Lorde as a great music sensation. Well, that is mainly because she is one. She is one of the most talented artists in the industry. However, people often forget that this musical sensation loves to wear vintage fashion and go thrifting. One of her favorite pieces of thrifted clothing was this St. John’s suit that she got for $50.
Even though that might seem like a bit much for a thrifted item, Lorde clarified that it is only the upper end of what she would pay. Now you tell us, how can this extraordinary woman wear something that costs less than 100$ and look like a million?
Who Said a Hat Won't Work? - 1999
Celine Dion has always been a fashion icon, and she has never been afraid to try something new – even if it doesn’t quite work. She did just that at the 1999 Academy Awards when she wore this white Galliano pantsuit. Rather than wearing it the way that it was designed, Celine decided to mix things up and wear it backward instead.
This meant that she was left with a plain front section, while the buttons and the lapels could be seen on the back. Fans just didn’t quite understand her fashion decision on this occasion, but who cares? We love her anyway.
When Uma Thurman Went Lacroix - 2004
Fashion is subjective, but it’s fair to say that most people can agree when something falls short of the fashion mark. There is a limit to what one can wear, even if you are a mega superstar. This was the case for Uma Thurman’s outfit to the 2004 Academy Awards. Dressed in a Christian Lacroix gown, it featured all kinds of lace, embellishments, and numerous forms of layering.
The whole thing was finished off with a blue belt – and people weren’t convinced. She quickly made her way onto the “Worst Dressed” lists, and many thought that the whole thing just missed the luxury mark expected of a red carpet event.
Going to the Opera - 1992
In the early ‘90s, Geena Davis was at the height of her career (and that wasn't a tall-people joke, she really was one of the busiest actresses in the industry). While many expected her to turn up to the Academy Award ceremony in 1992 in a sleek and luxurious gown, the opposite happened. The actress instead donned a dress designed by Ruth Meyers and Bill Hargate that was short at the front and long at the back.
As if that wasn’t enough, there were a lot of ruffles and opera gloves to contend with. The whole thing shook many fans to the core, and they couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
Gaga Going White - 2010
We can't have a list of dresses without including Lady Gaga, no matter what the color of the dress is. If we could, we would have added all of her outfit choices to the list of the most uncomfortable red carpet looks. We're just lucky that what seemed to be the most uncomfortable of them all happened to be white.
Gaga donned this weird and wacky ensemble to the 2010 Brit Awards, and the Francesco Scognamiglio design certainly went down a storm. As if the giant wig wasn’t enough to weigh Gaga down, we have a feeling that this huge amount of material probably did it for her.
