15 Celebrities Who Took Their Fashion Experiments a Step Too Far

year ago

Even the most stylish celebrities can choose an outfit that is not quite flattering for their red carpet debut. We all make mistakes, and perhaps many of us have a couple of dresses in our wardrobes that make us wonder, “What was I thinking when I was buying that?” But it’s never too late to learn from other people’s fails, for example, from the mistakes of celebrities whose fashion experiments happened to be relatively unsuccessful.

Usually, the actress’s style is flawless, but at the 2023 BAFTAs, she chose to don a brown velvet dress with bows attached and a matching shawl that looked like a blanket. And this outfit eventually topped the list of the worst dresses of the ceremony.

At the SAG Awards 2023, the actress hit the red carpet wearing an unusual dress embellished with gold sequins down the front. Unfortunately, her outfit caused a little turmoil online and among fashion critics who associated it with either French fries or paper left in a shredder.

Florence Pugh

The actress appeared at the 2023 Oscars in a rather contradictory outfit that consisted of mini shorts that resembled cycling shorts and a voluminous dress that opened below her chest. Internet users were so taken aback by her ensemble that they compared it with a duvet and crumpled bed sheets. “Me carrying my clean sheets back to my room from the dryer,” one of them wrote.

Zoe Saldaña

Fashion critics decided that Zoe’s dress, made from satin and lace, was inappropriate for the Oscars red carpet because it looked like a nightgown.

Halle Berry


Halle Berry missed the mark by wearing a black see-through tulle dress with a black bodysuit beneath it to the Vanity Fair event this year. The actress even topped the list of the worst-dressed celebrities at this event.

Elizabeth Banks

Elizabeth Banks walked the red carpet of the 2023 Oscars in this shapeless and asymmetrical gown with a long train that looked quite uncomfortable. In the end, she even tripped on stage because of the skirt, which was too long.

Allison Williams


The gown of the Girls star became one of the worst dresses at the latest Oscar ceremony. The outfit combined 3 different styles at once: a lace dress, feathers at the bottom, and a shapeless pink cape, which made fashion critics exclaim, “What is this pink disaster?”

Meghan Markle

In 2018, a pregnant Meghan Markle visited a care home in London. And her dress was so tight that some Internet users couldn’t help but comment on it, “This would have been fine 2 sizes larger. The seams are so stretched they are smiling!”

Heidi Klum

The funny outfit that Heidi Klum wore for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards ceremony was among the worst dresses of the event because of the hearts, especially the one stitched on top of her lower torso.

Olivia Cooke


Fashion critics disliked Olivia Cooke’s outfit that she donned at the latest BAFTA Awards. They even said that it looked like “a modified costume from the House of the Dragon closet.”

Anne Hathaway

The actress appeared on the red carpet for Paris Fashion Week wearing a total-leopard look, which was immediately named one of the worst outfits of the event. Fashion critics mentioned that it “wasn’t her best choice.”

Patricia Arquette


Patricia Arquette’s gown was included on the list of the worst dresses of the 2023 SAG Awards. Even though fashion critics didn’t consider it a disaster, it still looked weird because of the dress design and the tiny bag that the actress chose to wear it with.

Shania Twain

The Canadian singer’s outfit at the 2023 Grammy Awards didn’t impress fashion critics either. They described this Cruella de Vil costume as “silly and dated.”

Andreea Cristea

The dress of fashion blogger Andreea Cristea with floral motifs and huge voluminous sleeves that she donned at the 2023 BAFTA Awards was dubbed “a fashion disaster.” But Andreea wanted to steal the show with it, and she definitely succeeded.

Tallia Storm

Tallia Storm showed up at the 2023 Brit Awards in the most shocking outfit. The Scottish singer chose to wear a pink bikini set paired with a fur cap, a long shrug, and fur boots.
