AS OSCAR fever is still hanging around, fashion lovers like myself are already looking forward to examining and scrutinising what our favourite starlets and leading men will be sporting to top the style stakes next year. But as fantastic as some of the frocks and suits will be on the red carpet, we have to look back on some of the blunder those A-list celebs made back in the day. I don’t know about you all but it gives me a certain sense of satisfaction when the faces we know and love/loathe get it SO wrong!
Geena Davis has never been high up on the list of fashionistas but my goodness, 1992 was definitely not her year. Someone didn’t explain to the poor lass that although it was a special night, it wasn’t her special day and she needed to put the bizarre wedding dress back in the wardrobe. Or better, just burn it.
You know, we complain about what Madonna wears now, I’m a repeat offender of this but back in 1999 she looked even worse. Her Bollywood look mystifies everyone this year and I don’t know whether she looked older or younger than she does now. Thumbs down Madge!
Cher. Babe. Just no. A woman that can take a fabulous dress and make it look awful, Cher decided she was going to wear double denim in 2000. To the Oscars. There are no words for this outfit, just awful!
Probably one of the most memorable Oscar outfits of all time is Bjork in the horrible swan dress. Have you ever seen that scene in White Chicks when they have those awful dresses in the fashion show? Yeah, they were actually made for real people, and Bjork looks…just horrendous!
This outfit is a prime example of ‘just because its designer doesn’t mean you should wear it’. Uma Thurman sporting Christian LaCroix like something out of a pirate movie is just a tad too much for our liking and this was less than ten years ago!
Before Anne Hathaway was a style goddess, she was like all of us, but to be honest, I don’t think many of us would have picked this dress. Satin, flowery and orange – not a great combination and she looks incredibly uncomfortable in it!
So celebrities are just like all of us, no matter how amazing they look now, they will never escape the horrendous pictures of red carpets past. Now to sit back and wait for the next Oscars where we hope the delightful celebrities will have an ounce of fashion sense!
