It’s not a secret to anyone that celebs spend a lot of time trying to look their best. They work on their bodies, they have multiple people doing their hair, nails and makeup. Their outfits are carefully selected and they spend weeks looking for that perfect dress to rock to a red carpet or a special event. And sometimes the choices they make are truly unexpected. Whether they go for something absolutely crazy or just way too weird it’s always entertaining. So let’s take a look at the 9 most unexpected red carpet appearances.
Lara Flynn Boyle Ballerina Dress
On one hand dressing up as a ballerina can look very graceful and feminine, so we see what Lara was going for. On the other hand, when a grown woman wears a pink tutu it can look a bit weird, don’t you think?
The Infamous Meat Dress of Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga has worn a fare share of outrageous outfits, but this one remains to be the most shocking one. Weird fabrics, plastic bubble dresses, crazy hats and strange hairstyles are all fine and dandy, but a dress made of actual meat – that’s just going too far.
Bjork’s Swan Dress
Bjork was the original red carpet rebel. Her swan dress is still one of the most iconic and memorable red carpet appearances.
Claire Danes’s Glow-in-the-Dark Cinderella Gown
Claire’s glow-in-the-dark dress was one of the most stylish and most mesmerizing red carpet appearances we’ve ever seen. It was one of those rare moments when someone’s dress was memorable not because it was too short, too vulgar or too weird, but because it was the epitome of style and beauty. She looked like a real life Cinderella.
Lizzy Gardiner Gold Dress
We gotta say, Lizzy Gardiner’s American express gold dress was one of the tackiest things we’ve ever seen. Like just wearing a gold dress would’ve been too much, but making it out of American express gold cards took it to a whole new level.
Rihanna Met Gala 2017 Look
At this point Rihanna has solidified her status of a celebrity badass. Whatever she wears – instantly becomes a hit. So while this flower bomb dress that has been described as “imagining punks in the eighteenth century” might’ve looked ridiculous on someone else, Rihanna rocked it with style and grace. She looked incredible.
Cee Lo Green In Gold From Head To Toe
Cee Lo Green has been known to wear some pretty loud outfits, but this all gold everything look was just insane. It’s hard to decide whether he looks like a weird alien that’s come to take over earth, or just a giant Ferrero Rocher. Either way it’s not a good look for him.
Shia Labeouf With A Paper Bag
Depending on who you talk to Shia Labeouf is either crazy or a genius. We like to think he’s a mad genius. Remember that time he showed up to a red carpet wearing a paper bag on his head that said “I’m not famous anymore”. As if it’s that easy.
Solange Knowles Wearing Giles
Solange Knowles has been gracing us with some incredible outfits lately and this Giles dress was one of them. It’s strange, it’s futuristic, yet incredibly beautiful. It’s probably not the most comfortable dress to wear considering the shape and stiffness of the fabric, but Solange looked so graceful and gorgeous in it we couldn’t tear our eyes away from her.
