Nowadays the boundaries of “being weird” are definitely stretched far. Thanks to the extravagant celebrities like Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Bjork being weird has become a must and more has become less, so to speak. Up to now, there were a lot of celebs who stirred up some talks with their extravagance and weird outfits and dresses. Here are some of the, probably, weirdest dresses the celebs put on for the red carpet or other grand events.
Who doesn’t remember Macy Gray’s totally subtle message about her new album coming out, plastered on the dress she was wearing to the 2001 Video Music Awards. Some called it fearless, other thought it to be shameless and with a complete lack of taste. No matter what it was, Macy managed to get the public to talk about it for weeks.
At the 2001 Academy Awards, the world has witnessed one of the weirdest dresses a celebrity has worn to the Oscar’s ever! Known for her unique sense of style and a taste for strange and extravagant, Bjork still managed to leave everyone completely speechless when she put on a swan dress by a Macedonian creator Marjan Pejoski. The white swan dress has become iconic in both positive and negative ways.
When Lady Gaga first emerged, it was clear the she will continue the tradition of Cher and Madonna, and that she will move the term “being weird” on to a whole new level. And she proved those predictions by showing up in a few crazy outfits for the Music Television Awards and the VMA’s in 2009.
Another weird dress moment was the work of Christina Aguilera, who wore a pretty tacky and see through number at the Grammy Awards in 2001.
Miley Cyrus maybe the next best thing happening to the weird dress fans. Known for shocking the public over and over again, Miley’s weirdness isn’t going away any time soon, as she has managed to stunt us with a white fishnet number while attending the iHeart Radio Music Festival in 2013.
Katty Perry is also known for quite a lot weird outfits, but her floral dress and cape combination, she wore at the ‘The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles’ in January 2014, is something to think about.
Little Red Riding Hood dress that Nicki Minaj wore to the Grammy Awards in 2012 definitely counts as being weird.
Cher is a pioneer of weird red carpet dresses, and she set the pace during the Oscar’s in 1988, when she wore an almost completely see through dress by Bob Mackie.
Lady Gaga again brought weird fashion to the next level by presenting the public her meet made dress at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Another weird celebrity outfit was worn by Britney Spears, when she showed up for the 2001 American Music Awards in a denim outfit.
Another weird dress was worn by Lara Flynn Boyle at the Golden Globe Awards in 2003. It was rather a ballerina costume, then a dress.
The 1998 MTV Video Music Awards will be remembered by the turn up of Rose McGowan who wore a see-through dress and a thong beside her equally weird partner Marilyn Manson.
Gwyneth Paltrow also couldn’t resist the trendy weird wave as she appeared in a dark goth number by Alexander McQueen.
Known for her rather stylish outfits, Victoria Beckham surprised us in 2007 when she showed up in something looking more like a pin up suit that a dress.
We are used to Pink’s strange dress pick, but the choice for the 2001 Billboard Awards left us with no comment.
Sharon Stone made it to the weird list with her bat like costume of a Dior couture dress.
This wouldn’t be a complete list if Madonna wasn’t on it, and she made it with her Can-Can inspired dress , that she wore at the 2009 Met Costume Institute Gala.
Charlize Theron brought out the weird when she appeared with a set of roses on her breasts at the 2010 Academy Awards.
We are used to Renee Zellweger’s stylish picks, but the Herrera she wore to the 2009 Golden Globe’s was definitely weird.
Singer M.I.A. is also one of the many celebrity fans of weird fashion, but the House of Holland dress she had put on for the 2009 Grammy Awards was too much, even for her.
There you have it, a kind of a weird hall of fame. Well, even celebs are humans. Do try to learn from the mistakes of others.
