10 Celebrities Who Transformed Their Red Carpet Looks

year ago

When they appear at important events, many celebrities can make a big splash with their clothes. Some ladies use clothes they’ve worn before — they either redo them or add some new details. Others change their outfits right on the fly when nobody expects it.

We at Bright Side are really impressed by such ingenuity, and we’d love to see more of this type of thing happen on red carpets. And in the bonus feature of this article, you’ll find a celebrity who went to incredible lengths to surprise everyone.

The actress regularly shows up to big events wearing clothes she’s worn before. She reinvents her outfits and adds new details. For example, in 2016, she wore a bright top with a skirt — and 4 years later, she wore it with pants.

During the premiere of Alice in Wonderland in 2010, the actress looked as if she came straight out of a Tim Burton film. She was wearing a red dress, a long black vest, and a tiny top hat. And several months later, during the BAFTA ceremony, Carter wore the same dress but with a corset instead of the vest.

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion wore long dresses with tight pants underneath.

Designer Donatella Versace went on stage herself to remove the skirts from the ladies and show the pants. It was an homage to the time when Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey did something similar.

Rita Moreno wore the same dress for the Oscars as she did 56 years ago. She changed it only slightly.

In 2019, Victoria Beckham wore a beautiful suit. And in 2020, the singer showed how to make this outfit more romantic. She wore a big blouse with a tie and added the same jacket on top.

Keira Knightley redesigned her wedding dress and now wears it from time to time.

In 2013, Keira Knightley wore a white Chanel dress on the red carpet. What was interesting was the fact that she had already worn it at her wedding to James Righton. After the wedding, she added long transparent sleeves to the dress and a neckline with beads.

The most attentive fans noticed that Knightley also wore this dress during a BAFTA ceremony, with a jacket on top.

Princess Diana redid her glorious dress.

Princess Diana, like any royal person, often had new additions to her wardrobe. But she always came up with something original: she combined old clothes and even redid some of them. For example, the formal pale-blue dress with long sleeves turned into a light strapless one with a heart-shaped neckline.

Bonus: Lady Gaga transformations

In 2019, Lady Gaga hid several more outfits under her dress. On the Met Gala red carpet, she was wearing a big pink dress. A bit later, she took it off, showing a black outfit. And under it, there was another dress, to which she added glasses and a phone-shaped purse.
