Whether you love these iconic looks or not… you will never forget them. They leave an imprint on the red carpet because they are so pretty or just strange. Below are the most iconic looks.
1. Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress
Alexander McQueen created this amazing dress for the Duchess of Cambridge. We absolutely love the lace sleeves with the simple yet stunning gown. The stunning diamond covered tiara is the cherry on top.
2. Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress
This may have been the first appearance of food on the red carpet. Franc Fernandez designed this strange outfit. Not only is the dress meat but but her shoes and her headpiece. She actually wore this dress with a message behind it. She stated, “if we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights pretty soon, we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones. And I am not a piece of meat.”
3. Bjork’s Swan Dress
Another weird dress is this swan dress from the 2001 Oscars. This unforgettable dress is found in every costume store. It is designed by Marjan Pejoski and Valentino has recreated it recently in the fashion show.
4. Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress
Princess Diana deserved nothing less than a wedding dress that had 10,000 pearls and a 25 foot train. This Emanuel silk dress is an iconic look that is still in the bridal world today.
5. Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack Mini Dress
Geri Halliwell thought that her original dress was too boring, so she asked her sister to stitch on a Union Jack Tea towel to her Gucci dress. Absolute legend.
6. Lizzy Gardiner’s Credit Card Dress
Lizzy Gardiner’s innovative dress is made out of 254 gold American Express cards that all have her name on it. All the card were real but expired. When she was wearing this dress, she won the best costume design award for the movie, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
7. Lil Kim’s Purple Jumpsuit
Lil Kim ditched the normal dress look and a bra. She wore a nipple cover with a seashell design and sequins. Misa Hylton designed the jaw dropping jumpsuit. I guess there is no chance for a nip slip.
8. Princess Diana’s Revenge Dress
Princess Diana looked like an absolute G the night that Prince Charles admitted to cheating on her with Camilla Parker Bowles. Christina Stambolian designed this exquisite black mini dress and she paired it with a beautiful necklace. Prince Charles was crying when he saw her in this dress. Princess Diana? More like Queen. Bow down.
9. Audrey Hepburn’s Golightly Black Dress
We all have seen Audrey Hepburn in this memorable dress. Is it just me or does it seem like this outfit is absolute everywhere? Well, it’s probably because she wore it in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Givenchy designed this dress but Edith Head fixed it up to make it look more appropriate (it had a high slit on the side).
10. Jennifer Lopez’s Jungle Print Dress
This iconic Versace dress gives such good vibes. She originally wore a dress just like this in 2000. Everyone was too stunned to speak because she looked amazing. She wore this dress when she closed a Versace show. Bravo, J Lo.
11. Rose McGowan’s Fringe Dress
Rose McGowan might as well have gone naked because the dress really was just a lot of strings. Nothing was left to the imagination. I applaud her for going out of her comfort zone and dressed in a way that no one really has. Rose wore this to the 1998 MTV Music Awards with Marilyn Manson.
12. Britney Spears’ Boa Outfit
Britney looked like an absolute badass on stage. Her outfit complimented her body and the snake was just a great addition. No one that I can remember has brought a big snake on stage while performing. She later explained that she was scared when she was holding it on stage.
13. Rihanna’s Naked Dress
Absolutely, stunning outfit. She looked exceptional. The outfit incorporated 230,000 crystals, a tan thong, and a headscarf. This was the moment when she had the famous line, “she can beat me but she cannot beat my outfit.” Damn. Right.
14. Cher’s Black Sequin Dress
We need a moment of silence for this dress because it is the prettiest thing I have ever seen. Cher looked like a supermodel strutting down to get her Oscar in 1988. Her feather headdress was made for her 2 years prior.
15. Katy Perry’s Angelic Outfit
The Met Gala brings out the best, most creative outfits ever. This Met Gala theme was “Heavenly Bodies” and Katy showed up in angel wings and a gold dress with gold boots. The wings were so big that she struggled to get through most doors.
16. Marilyn Monroe’s White Dress
This William Travilla dress was shown in the Seven Year Itch, when she was standing over a subway gate and the air picked up her dress. She looked absolutely stunning.
17. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake Matching Denim Outfits
Britney and Justin had their denim moment in 2001 at the American Music Awards. Most people did not enjoy their outfits but still unforgettable. They made their couple debut in these outfits.
18. Madonna’s Cone Bra
Madonna wore this at her Blonde Ambition World Tour in 1990. It was perfect for her song, “Like A Virgin,” because it had sex appeal. Jean Paul Gaultier designed the corset. When people think of Madonna, they will think of this bodysuit.
19. Kim Kardashian Wet Dress
Kim wore this at the 2019 Met Gala. Even though she could barely breathe, there was no doubt that it was one of her best outfits that she has ever worn. That is truly saying something because she is one of the most iconic influencers of all time.
