12 Times Celebrities Wore Such Bold Outfits That They Caused a Stir Among Their Fans

year ago

We are used to seeing celebs wearing stunning dresses and other clothing at public events and in photos. However, sometimes celebrities appear in front of cameras in some very bold gowns — some of them get a round of applause, others get snowed in under an avalanche of critics.

We at Bright Side recalled the cases when famous ladies appeared in public in provocative outfits. The bonus at the end will tell you about an unusual image of a famous singer and actor who also caused quite a stir.

Anne Hathaway

The 39-year-old actress showed up at a fashion event for Valentino in a Barbie look. The pink mini dress with a high collar and a skirt that cinches at the waist were complemented by very high platform shoes and a small bag.

Fashion magazines noted that Anne has changed her style completely. Instead of conservative floor-length dresses, she now opts for bold and bright outfits.

Emma Watson, who rarely attends fashion events, turned up at Paris Fashion Week in 2022. Her look caused a stir. The celebrity appeared in ripped skinny jeans and a wide-shoulder 80s-style jacket.

One famous magazine said that Watson was demonstrating the office look of a millennial.

Kate Hudson

Sheer tops made a comeback to the fashion world in 2022 and Kate Hudson decided to “catch the wave.” The 43-year-old actress showed up at Valentino’s fashion show wearing a thin black blouse with lace, and trousers.

Critics liked the bold look and they claimed that despite the bold top, the overall image looked quite elegant.

Alexa Demie

The star of the series Euphoria attended the fashion show by Balenciaga in a pretty creative look, which was not hard to notice. Her overalls resembled big jeans that the celebrity pulled to the neck, having made special holes for her arms.

Internet users agonized over the celebrity’s look, offering their old jeans for her next look. We, in our turn, believe Alexa’s outfit was very unique and nice.

Bryce Dallas Howard

Bryce turned up at the Golden Globe Awards in 2021 wearing a tight shimmering dress made from thin fabric. This model had remainedtrend for more than one season already, but it didn’t stop the actress from getting piled under a bunch of critics. Internet users think the actress shouldn’t have opted for such a design because it enhanced the imperfections of her body.

The actress herself didn’t regret her choice. She said that she had bought the dress in an online marketplace for resale luxury goods because she prefers not to complicate things when it comes to choosing a dress she will only wear once. She also added that the dress looked perfect with the color of her hair and it’s true.

Rachel Brosnahan

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star appeared donning an unusual orange and yellow ensemble at another premiere. The combination of a classic coat and pants tucked into patent leather boots looked modern, but not everyone found the look interesting.

One fashion internet site called Rachel’s outfit a fashion fail and also compared her look to a canary. We, in our turn, believe that donning bright accessories deserves applause.

The French actress managed to surprise everyone when she appeared at the 2022 Cannes Festival, donning a green outfit with sleeves that visually merged with gloves and tights that merged with shoes.

Fashion internet magazines compared her to Kim Kardashian’s style. The image of the actress resembled the spectacular show-ups of the star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The actress opted for quite a controversial look for attending the premiere of The Tragedy of Macbeth. She decided to complement the white coat with sandals that she donned over socks.

Critics didn’t find this bold solution interesting, having said that even the names of famous brand designers on her clothes don’t decrease the insult that Frances has inflicted on fashion.

Noomi Rapace

In 2020, Noomi Rapace arrived at a public event donning an unusual look with a bottom part that was quite ambiguous. Many people wondered whether it was a skirt or pants.

The actress’s outfit caused a sardonic grin among some journalists. They wrote, “It started off as denim, bedazzled straitjacket before she realized she couldn’t get it off, so her legs decided to cut their way out. And don’t even get us started on the (faux?) fur/pinstriped nonsense on top.” However, no matter what critics said, we believe this bold look was great for the actress.

Jennifer Connelly

The outfit that Jennifer donned at Paris Fashion Week 2019 caused a lot of debate. A plaid sweater paired with a pleated skirt and leather flared trousers were considered ridiculous by some fashion magazines.

Others, on the contrary, referred to Connelly as one of the most stylish celebrities who attended the event.

Marion Cotillard

The representatives of the new generation would definitely approve of the look that the French actress wore at the premiere of Little White Lies 2. She put an oversized chunky knit vest over a dress covered with pics of little crocodiles. Her hair was styled in a high bun.

Some people liked the look of the actress a lot, others called it the worst outfit a human has ever worn.

Alessandra Ambrosio

The former Victoria’s Secret angel attended New York Fashion Week in 2019, and not everyone liked her look. The model appeared in a black bodysuit and low-rise baggy jeans that seemed to be almost falling off of her hips.

Perhaps, the critics simply don’t like the trendy looks of the past decades. We, in our turn, think that Alessandra looked stunning.

Bonus: Justin Timberlake made a splash in Paris

The singer and actor recently attended a fashion show in Paris. As an outfit, Justin opted for a bright short-sleeved shirt, which he tucked into palazzo trousers with a pleated waist.

Fashion magazines said that despite the presence of other famous people at the event, all eyes were on Timberlake and his partner, Jessica Biel.

Which celebrity’s look seemed interesting to you? Whose look, on the contrary, did you dislike?

There's some very creative and eclectic clothing styles in this article. I'm not a fan of most of them but I do think the Lacoste alligator dress is super cute, though I wouldn't really wear the large Lacoste sweater vest over it.
