10 Times Celebrities Revealed Red Carpet Outfits That They Regret Wearing
Outfits are an essential part of celebrities’ image. People follow stars’ red carpet walks, discuss new dresses and suits, and remember the most iconic looks the red carpet has ever seen. However, not every outfit turns out to be celebrities’ best choice. Sometimes, it is the failure the stars can’t forget.
We at Bright Side found 10 outfits celebrities regret wearing the most, and we want to share them with our readers.
1. Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton, a singer and actress, has shown up on the red carpets in many iconic outfits throughout her long career. Some of them amazed people, while the others Parton didn’t even like herself. “I think, ’Oh my Lord, you must have thought you looked good,’ and I must have, or I wouldn’t have worn it,” she shares in one of her interviews.
“But I guess I didn’t have nothing better at the time — or I thought it looked good at the moment,” she adds.
2. Mariah Carey
Speaking about her style at the beginning of her career, Mariah Carrey remembers how she fought against the total-black outfits her stylists used to dress her in. “They did [put me in a lot of blacks],” she recalls. “It was just like, ahhh, such a long story. You don’t even wanna know.”
3. Diane Kruger
Fashion risks don’t always pay off, even when you work with a trusted design team. For her first Golden Globe, Diane Kruger wore a dress that she thinks was one of the worst outfits in her career. “I love [the designers], and I don’t know why we talked ourselves into this dress,” Kruger shares.
“It was gold, and my belly was exposed, but I decided to do retro hair — I had a short bob then. It was not a good look, and I think that will be remembered.”
4. Kate Hudson
Sometimes, it is not clear what is not working in the outfit. In 2001, Kate Hudson got the dress of her dreams. “I was 21-years-old and to have Stella McCartney dressing me — well, I felt like the hippest, coolest girl in the world,” remembers Hudson. However, the next day Kate “turned on the television to find out I was on every Worst Dressed list possible.”
“So I called Stella, and we just laughed, and she said to me, “Look babe, it was the hair, wasn’t it?” laughs Hudson.
5. Jonas Brothers
Searching for their unique style, the Jonas Brothers went through “dark times.”
“I think we all had an Ed Hardy phase, where you had the hat, and the T-shirt, and the shoes — and the jeans, if you were lucky!” shares Nick Jonas, speaking about his biggest fashion regrets. “Head to toe. Dark times. But we gotta go through the fire to come out knowing what to wear without looking insane.”
6. Ashley Tisdale
Sometimes, fashion failures are not a tragedy but rather a reason to laugh at yourself. Ashley Tisdale, for example, adores, as she says, one of the weirdest looks in her life. “I wore this really weird pink camo skirt and this pink furry thing, I don’t even know what it was, but I said, ’Ooh, put me in it!’” she recalls. “And instead of wearing it like you would normally wear it, I was like, ’I am going to do it, have one of my arms out and have it going across my body.’
“At that point, you just have to laugh at yourself!” she says.
7. Olivia Holt
The beginning of their career was a challenging time for the styles of many celebrities. Olivia Holt remembers one of the first red carpet outfits she ever wore with a little bit of fear. “When I first started, I remember wearing this ... I think it was supposed to be a dress, but I wore it as a shirt—long light blue, it looked like a baby gown almost, and I wore it with these brown leggings and knee-high lace-up boots,” she recalls.
“It was kind of scary, and I’m so sad that I did that to myself.”
Today, each time Zendaya steps on the red carpet, her looks are discussed, and fans are looking for another reference her outfit makes for the movies she stars in. However, even Zendaya had a fashion failure at the beginning of her career. When asked about her biggest fashion regret, “A long floral dress I paired with booties,” she remembered.
“It wasn’t very flattering—I hadn’t gotten that far in my style evolution yet. I was 13 at the time, but still.”
9. David and Victoria Beckham
David and Victoria Beckham often show up in matching outfits. Sometimes the outfits are classy, stressing the couple’s sense of style. However, the bikers-inspired full-body leather outfit the couple wore in 1999 was a whole another story. “Me and Victoria wore matching black leather outfits once,” recalls David.
“They were Versace. But that’s one when I look back and am like, ’What were we thinking?’”
10. Eva Mendes
Sometimes it’s not just because of the clothing that it looks wrong, it’s about the way the whole look works together. Eva Mendes believes that this was the case with the outfit she once wore. “It was a beautiful dress, but the way I put everything together, it was a Princess Jasmine gone wrong,” she shares. “The strapless, purple dress with necklaces and hair in a really high braid. It’s not a good look.”
Which outfit do you think was the worst? And maybe some of them were depreciated vainly?
