As most celebrities’ red carpet is about making a striking statement, many stars nowadays are willing to experiment. From Emmy Awards to elegance at Cannes Film Festival, these women made fashion statements that were the talk of the town. Look at the bold and beautiful dresses from the past decade in our article below.
The see-through trend is popular among stars, but they can face criticism if done wrong. However, such a case didn’t happen when someone like Gwyneth decided to wear it. The actress chose this look for the 2013 ‘Iron Man 3’ premiere. She was wearing a sheer-paneled Antonio Berardi gown. The sheer design is provocative but still elegant. As her gown couldn’t be worn with underwear, she needed to be extra careful since one wrong move would have caused a scandal.
Paris Hilton stole the spotlight at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival event with this glorious dress. The socialite appeared on the red carpet for the movie ‘Inside Out premiere, wearing a backless sheer fabric gown by Yousef Al-Jasmi. Of course, what is Paris without breaking some rules? She took a selfie with actor Sun Zu Yang at this strictest no-selfie event.
Wearing Giambattista Valli Couture, Kendall stood out at the ‘120 Beats Per Minute’ premiere. Moreover, the model also accommodated the alight, airy silk chiffon with Chopard jewels. The beautiful florals made a dreamy impression and raised the heartbeat of many fashion lovers. She stole the show at the Cannes Film Festival of 2017.
Who remembers this iconic “meat dress” of the mother monster herself? The design came from Franc Fernandez and was suggested to Gaga by Nicola Formichetti. After the superstar wore it, she faced many backlashes from animal rights groups. Nevertheless, the singer stated that there is a big reason for such a decision. The outfit made it into Time magazine as the top fashion statement of 2010. After that, it was preserved by taxidermists as a type of jerky.
This time, Lady Gaga went old-school glamour with this beautiful metallic custom gown by stylist turned designer Brandon Maxwell. During the Grammy ceremony, Tony Bennett accompanied her, so the dress was spot on—old-school glamour for old-school charm.
Rita Ora wore not one, not two, but three gowns throughout the 2015 Oscar. After the official ceremony, she went to Post Oscars Vanity Fair party wearing her most eye-catching outfit. The see-through asymmetric single-sleeved dress by Donna Karan Atelier suited the quirky star the best.
German model and actress Diane Kruger surprised us by wearing this Marchesa design at the Golden Globe Awards in 2005. Diane later confessed that while she loved the dress, it might not be the perfect fit for the occasion. She told one magazine: “You could see my belly button, and everybody else was in long, flowy gowns.”
