The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

I always look forward to the award season and the fashion that comes with it – most celebrities choose tasteful attire, but there are always a few questionable outfit choices that turn heads for all the wrong reasons. So here we look back at some of the most shocking dresses (or costumes) to ever grace the red carpet.

Lady Gaga is well known for stepping our in some shocking attire but this meat dress that she wore to the 2010 MTV Music Awards really took the cake. Made from raw meat the dress was meant to be in protest of gay soldiers who had been discharged of service. She said about the dress “Dead meat is dead meat and anyone that’s willing to risk their life and die for their country is the same. You’re not gay and dead, straight and dead. You are dead.”

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

Nicki Minaj is another celebrity who loves to make us gasp when she steps into the limelight and this little red riding hood inspired dress was no exception. At the 2012 Grammy Awards she was slammed for this dress for unsuccessfully trying to compete with the crazy style of Lady Gaga.

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

Sasha Gradiva is a Russian singer and wore this bizarre terminator-style ensemble to the 2012 Grammy Awards. On her official website she stated that she loves fashion that makes her stand out from the crowd and this dress teamed with the odd fake gun accessory definitely had the desired effect.

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

Baring all and leaving nothing to the imagination, Rihanna set tongues wagging at the 2014 CFDA Awards, there to accept her CFDA Fashion Icon award. She was heard telling reporters that “you will never be stylish if you don’t take risks.” I agree with her statement, but disagree with that dress!

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

Former Playboy model Tess Smith left us all asking one question when she stepped out on the 2005 Emmy Awards red carpet – WHY? All it would have taken was one gust of wind and the crowd might have seen more than they bargained for. Tess Smith took the phrase less is more way too literally on this occasion.

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

Stepping back in time to 1999, Lil Kim shocked many at the MTV Video Music Awards in this purple mermaid-inspired jumpsuit. Many years later in 2013 controversial Miley Cyrus recreated the look for Halloween and set the media into a frenzy once again.  I can’t really decide who wore it better because it’s just so… wrong.

The Most Shocking Red Carpet Dresses

When Amber Rose stepped out in this skimpy dress (if you can call it a dress) at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards she certainly turned heads. Wearing a Laura Dewitt design she didn’t leave much to the imagination in this sparkly, bejewelled number.

Golden Globes Worst Dressed

It wouldn’t be the Golden Globes without a red carpet disaster – or 10! From Charlize to Elle, what were their stylists thinking?

Jessica Biel

Turns out being newly-engaged to Justin Timberlake brings out your inner Victorian.

Elle Macpherson

Is Elle walking down the aisle after walking down the red carpet? Way too frou from bride for my liking.

Charlize Theron

While we’re at it, is Charlize Theron channeling her inner ballerina? Charlize usually aces the red carpet but not in this part gown, part tutu (complete with satin headband).

Lea Michelle

Dynasty called, and they want their wardrobe back. A few days ago, Lea was looking fun and pretty at the People’s Choice Awards. Here, she’s looking way older than she should.

Meryl Streep

This button-down black gown makes Meryl look frumpier than she should.

Sarah Michelle Geller

I love tie dye, but the combination of the billowing gown and severe ponytail turned this potentially-fun look into a horror story.

Jane Lynch

Completely, utterly boring. I’d stay home if this was my only option.

Kelly Osbourne

Last week Kelly premiered powder grey tresses. Tonight, she’s showing off an ’80s peacock blue disaster. Way to go.

Amanda Peet

Looks like Amanda raided her local haberdashery story for metres of dust ruffle and made a red carpet dress out of it.

Emily Mortimer

Are you there Emily? I can see your head but your dress is blending in with your skin. An example of how not to do nude.

Who is your Golden Globes worst dressed?

People’s Choice Awards Best And Worst Dressed

We’re not really sure what the People’s Choice Awards are about, but the celeb-packed event kicked off awards season with some stunning red carpet looks – and a few shockers too.

Lea Michelle Love the bright lips juxtaposed with the spider web lace flapper dress, paired with sparkly Jimmy Choos.

Emma Stone Who says you need to a wear a gown to an awards ceremony? Especially when Gucci are dressing you in a playful tux.

Vanessa Hudgens Love the Old Hollywood gown, but it just feels too old for 23-year-old Vanessa.

Ginnfer Goodwin I’m biased: I adore neon. Plus Ginnifer is too cute for words. Love a bit of quirky fashion at awards night!

Miley Cyrus I never thought I’d say this, but I love what Miley Cyrus is wearing. This off-white illusion dress makes her look grown up for a change.

Kristen Bell Not sure if this lace and leather Valentino dress is naughty or nice?

Kelly and Sharon Osbourne “Mum hates my hair” tweeted Kelly hours after premiering her new powdery grey locks. For what it’s worth, I hate it too.

Portia and Ellen DeGeneres Portia and Ellen make one fine-looking couple. And so happy! Who is your best and worst dressed from the People’s Choice Awards 2012?
