Tonight’s 92nd annual Academy Awards are sure to be the biggest celebrity fashion parade of the year, but in the past, the prestigious show has been marred by bizarre outfits!
Singer Bjork‘s infamous “swan” dress from the 2001 Oscars, complete with an egg at her feet, is the most extreme example of a fashion no-no, but many believe she meant it as a joke.
Cher‘s 1988 Academy Awards headdress paired with a midriff-baring dress was polarizing, with some fans thinking it was over the top and others praising her daring.
“As you can see, I did receive my Academy booklet on how to dress like a serious actress,” she deadpanned into the microphone about her ensemble at the time.
Today, most celebrities use stylists to help them get Oscar-ready.
But that might not have been the case back in 2006 for model/actress Lauren Hutton, who actually wore a fanny pack on the red carpet with her pantsuit!
“My Heart Will Go On” singer Celine Dion is known for following her own fashion drum, and in 1991, she made an odd statement in a white tuxedo with a jaunty hat and sunglasses.
Another hitmaker, country star Faith Hill, looked like a rainbow popsicle in her ghastly 2002 Oscars dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow shocked onlookers in 2002 by wearing a black sleeveless gown which was sheer on top, revealing she wasn’t wearing a bra.
She accentuated her shocking Heidi-meet-goth look with ghoulish eye makeup that just made things worse.
