Celebrating Fashion Failures at the Oscars


We all know that the Academy Awards are all about movies and glamour. But that doesn’t stop us from keeping ourselves amused by some of the more far-out fashion faux pas that have struck the red carpet in recent years.

This year’s selection of gowns, dresses and tuxedos was actually pretty constrained, especially when you consider what went down at the 2017 Grammys. So here’s a look back over some of the more outlandish fashion creations from Oscars history.

We all love the Bjork, but most of us were scratching our heads when the Icelandic singing star turned up at the 2001 Academy Awards wearing what appeared to be a swan. Although it’s still not known exactly why she wore such a bizarre outfit, it’s clear that it’s one of the most iconic red carpet moments in Oscars history.



But there’s something about the Oscars that seems to let even our most stylish actresses make an almighty mistake. And we all admit that we kind of enjoyed the Academy Awards in 2010 when Charlize Theron seemed to think that it was a good idea to wear a weird purple dress with what looked like two lilac cinnamon buns positioned very strategically.

And it’s been great to see that even Gwyneth Paltrow has a sense of humour in talking about some of her Oscars fashion fiascos. Whether it was that weird Alexander McQueen dress that could have definitely used a bra in 2002, or the gaudy pink Ralph Lauren gown from 1999, it seems that the actress could use a little assistance in her fashion choices.



All of these style failures show what happens when our stars get a little too creative in their dress selections. Perhaps they would be better served by keeping their looks more traditional and classic like you’d expect to see at a glamorous casino. Some online gaming sites like New Jersey Online Casinos have included a blog post about which celebrities love to hit the casinos, and whilst Ben Affleck might not have the best fashion sense, his two Academy Awards and numerous blackjack adventures show that there’s more to life than getting dressed up.

So rather than trying to be too avant-garde by wearing swans and see-through tops, perhaps our stars could take tip from a movie icon like Molly Ringwald who used the 2010 Academy Awards to show off a chic, original and glamorous outfit that wouldn’t look out of place at a casino!
