A lot of things can go wrong on the red carpet and most of them involve fashion. When celebrities experiment with their dresses, it can be the source of their embarrassment. Taking a close look upon all the dresses that the female celebrities wore on the red carpet, we have compiled a list of some of the most awkward dresses that came as a shock for the fans.
H.E.R. aka Gabriella Wilson wore a shiny purple dress to her first Grammy awards in 2019. We believe that she missed out on the memo that said that you had to dress to impress not express when you are walking the red carpet.
María Conchita Alonso, Grammy
María Conchita Alonso is a star on Desperate Housewives and she decided to flaunt a skull necklace on the red carpet. While her Grammy-nominated song may not have made the fashion news, the skull necklace certainly did.
Halle Bailey & Chloe Bailey, Grammy
The contemporary R&B duo wore excessive sleeves to the red carpet and the overly flowing white parts certainly got quite the attention but in the wrong way.
Katy Perry, Grammy
This fluffy pink dress makes Katy Perry look like a piece of pastry. This even sparked a debate on Twitter. On one side, there were people saying that she looked like a pastry while the others said that she looked like a mermaid. It is actually a Balmain gown from the spring collection of 2019.
Lilly Singh, Grammy
Lilly Singh is a YouTuber with the channel name Superwoman. Her debut at the Grammy awards was a disaster when she wore a shining jumpsuit that was more of an eyesore than an eye candy.
Andra Day, Grammy
Andra is a passionate singer and she sometimes brings that passion to her fashion as well. However, the dress that she wore for the Grammy awards looked more like a Halloween costume and less like a dress worn to a red carpet.
The stitching of the gold to the black seems to be rather an unfinished and hurried project. Also, the gold was too much for the eyes and it was a dress that was not at all appropriate for the red carpet.
Ella Mai, Grammy
Ella is a new winner for the Grammy award but her debut to the red carpet was in a totally disastrous dress. The blueberry colored dress with a giant fluff was a rookie mistake and we believe that she could have done a lot better.
Cardi B, Grammy
Cardi B is known to be an eccentric dresser and that showed at the Grammy awards when she came as a blooming flower. One question comes to the mind when we see this dress. How would she sit in that loud dress?
Hennessy Carolina, Grammy
Cardi B’s sister is just as eccentric as her. She wore a tangerine dress to the event where her sister won an award. If the color was not enough, the extravagant sleeves were just too much.
Dinah Jane, Grammy
This dress would have been too boring if it were not for that golden jacket. Also, her makeup was too bland for the red carpet as well. It looks like she did not get enough sleep.
Chaka Khan, Grammy
Yvette Marie Stevens, also known as Chaka Khan, wore this dress to the red carpet at the Grammy awards. The metallic suit is not appealing to the eyes and it does not help that it is a tight fit either.
Nina Dobrev, Grammy
The actress from Vampire Diaries was at the Grammy awards to present an award but the blush gown was something just too simple. The nude full length gown made her look rather plain and it was not something we would have expected from the 30 year old star.
Kylie Jenner, Grammy
Kylie Jenner walked the red carpet at the Grammy awards in a Balmain gown that was rather confusing. She had come straight from the celebrations of Stormi’s first birthday and was wearing an elaborate jumpsuit with oversized gloves.
St. Vincent, Grammy
Annie Erin Clark, aka St. Vincent, received quite a lot of criticism over her dress to the red carpet of the Grammy Awards. Fans on Twitter had a lot to say about her dress and one of them even remarked that three costumes could have been made from that single dress.
Kate Hudson, Golden Globes
Kate Hudson is like royalty in Hollywood and people expect a certain standard of clothing from her when it comes to the red carpet. However, she showed up at the Golden Globes in a Valentino Haute Couture and Harry Winston jewelry. The dress was see-through and tight, and was one of the most unflattering dresses that the Titanic star had ever worn.
Heidi Klum, Golden Globes
Supermodel Heidi Klum was highly criticized when she wore this black dress to the red carpet at the Golden Globes. The gown was a low high and her hair were all laid back, something that is not at all suitable for the red carpet.
Barbara Meier, Golden Globes
During the 2018 Golden Globes, the theme was the Times Up movement. Everyone was supposed to wear black and Barbara broke that sacred rule. Also, the dress was all too much with the frills, the colours, and the studs.
Margot Robbie, Golden Globes
Everyone loves Margot Robbie and watching her on the big screen is one of the loveliest things in the world. However, the deep neckline and the laid back hair were not a match for the red carpet. The metallic embroidery did not help either.
Alison Sudol, Golden Globes
Alison Sudol, also known as A Fine Frenzy, made a huge mistake when she decided to wear this dress to the red carpet of the Golden Globes. The patches of the flowers were a sore to the eyes and the open neckline was not too great either.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Golden Globes
If you have watched all seasons of Sex & The City, you would expect a lot from Carrie Bradshaw. However, this dress was not at all what you would have expected from Sarah Jessica Parker. The dress is of an awkward length and there is a lot to dislike.
Lena Dunham, Golden Globes After Party
This is a rather simple look for Lena and it is not something that you would have expected from the director. An after party is all about glamour and this dress is not glamorous at all.
Emily Ratajkowski, Met Gala
A minimalistic look can be quite amazing but Emily showed us that it is not always the case. Her signature brunette locks with a diamond headband coupled with a silver backless dress was quite an awkward look for the Met Gala.
Amal Clooney, Met Gala
This dress is made by the British designer Richard Quinn. The metallic top with a billowing floral train was quite criticised by the fashionistas, all of whom said that it was not something that they would have thought Clooney would sport.
Miley Cyrus, Met Gala
You do not expect Miley Cyrus to always keep in line and follow the rules. However, this dress was too shocking for all the people since it was a bit too loose and the plunging neckline made her seem a bit fat.
Kendall Jenner, Met Gala
Kendall Jenner has made some wrong choices when it comes to the red carpet in the past. This was one of them too when she decided to wear a rather simple jumpsuit, designed by Virgil Abloh, that was not at all aligned with the theme of the Met Gala.
Penelope Cruz, Cannes
Penelope Cruz is known to have stunned everyone with the dresses that she has worn to the red carpet. Keeping them in mind, this time she was quite the disappointment when she wore a dress with truffled frills and divisions that were not made for her.
Dascha Polanco, MTV VMAs
When you look at this dress, you know that it is just a total catastrophe. The star from Orange Is The New Black thought that the gunmetal look would be good for her since she wore it everywhere, from her eyeshadow to her shoes.
Tiffany Haddish, MTV VMAs
This is a quite bold dress and it was rather see-through and tight on the body. Tiffany should not have chosen this dress for the red carpet since it does not go well with a minimal makeup look.
Busy Phillips, People Choice Awards
Turtlenecks are not the right choice for the red carpet and Busy should have known better than that. The necklace tried to redeem the dress a little but when you lower your gaze to the skirt, the shock comes back all over again.
Yara Shahidi, Emmys
Yara usually makes it to the top of the lists when celebrities with the best dresses are being counted. However, she proved to be quite a disappointment when she showed up for the Emmy awards in this bubblegum dress. The flower in the center and the stitching of the beads did not help her case either.
Emma Stone, Oscars
Emma Stone is the celeb crush of many people around the world but when she showed up to the Academy Awards in this rather boring Louis Vuitton pant suit, everyone was rather disappointed.
Nicole Kidman, Oscars
Fashion is a game of chance and when you are on the red carpet, the stakes are as high as they get. However, Nicole Kidman was wronged with this huge central bow and everyone was shocked at the dress that she chose for the red carpet.
Kelly Ripa, Oscars
The front of the dress is quite dull and the colors flowing behind are even duller. Kelly was named as one of the highest earning hosts but this dress was a wrong choice for her since her fans did not like it at all.
Andra Day, Oscars
This dress is wrong for the Academy Awards red carpet and we are not sure why Andra Day decided to go with it. The tone of the dress does not suit the red carpet where one usually goes with an elegant dress.
Blanca Blanco, Oscars
Blanca Blanco is a fashionista but the dress that she chose for the Academy Awards leaves us in dismay and disbelief. She looks rather tired in the dress and her side slit is something that she can never come back from.
Lupita Nyong’o, Oscars
Black Panther’s Lupita decided to wear a Versace dress, Alexandre Birman shoes, and jewels from Niwaka. However, the black and bronze beads were a bit too much for her and she should have gone with something simpler.
Salma Hayek, Oscars
This is one of the rare moments when a Gucci dress went wrong. The number of slits is quite insane and it spells out as a fashion failure. Salma is known for being a bold actress and she was expected to come in a classy dress rather than this flowy number.
St. Vincent, Oscars
If it had not been for the right sleeve, this look might have been somewhere near perfect. However, the anchor ending to the dress also did not do good for her and she should have rather gone with something more elegant.
Haley Bennett, Oscars
Haley did not have to bring the jungle with her when she was wearing this dress to the red carpet of the Oscars. She makes us think that fashion should be something in which we should put more of a thought of.
