The Oscars are almost here, so it’s time for predictions! Not about the movies, of course, but about the dresses. We have Oscar dresses fever and we’re dying to see who wears what! We’ve already compiled a top 10 of the most amazing Oscar dresses and today it’s time for the worst Oscar dresses.
While looking at these beautiful ladies and the horrible outfits they wear, one thought crossed our minds (not the obvious: what were they thinking?), but did nobody see them leave the house like that? I swear, if my mother saw me in any of the dresses below, she wouldn’t let me take one step out the door!
We love Cher and we think she is a beautiful, funky lady who loves controversy and doesn’t allow trends influence her style. But in the case of the Oscars, we believe that she should have chosen something a bit less feathery and a little less revealing. Never mind, she and her crazy outfits probably was the reason behind why so many people watched the Oscars in the 80’s and 90’s.
9. Geena Davis
When Geena Davis was nominated for an Oscar in 1992 for her role as Thelma in Thelma & Louise nothing could have prepared the world for her dress. It was a hideous dress that looked like it came off the set of a low budget Western movie. The black stalkings and white sating gloves were a horrible addition, too. Everything was just a hot mess!
8. Hilary Swank
Hilary Swank is usually a fashion-conscientious lady who knows what looks good on her and what doesn’t, but in 2002 she made this huge faux-pas of a pink dress. We don’t have a problem with the color pink in particular, although we’re not too fond of it, but the sheerness of the dress is really disturbing.
7. Celine Dion
Celine Dion’s taste in clothes is peculiar and that, right there, is the understatement of the week. When she showed up at the Oscars in this white backwards suit, people were left scratching their heads. What was she thinking? The hat, the glasses, the awkward pants! What is really great is that she doesn’t seem to care too much about what people have to say about her and her bizarre outfits, which is great!
6. Angelina Jolie
We adore Angelina Jolie and we think she is one of the most beautiful movie stars that ever walked the earth, but there was a time, when she wore things just to irk people, it seems. We have nothing against this dress, but on her, it looks more like a costume, than a proper dress. When something you wear makes you think of a costume, then it’s a good idea to take it off.
5. Gwyneth Paltrow
It’s not just the dress that’s awful, but her makeup and the accessories. The dress is awful for many reasons: the different materials between top and bottom, the cheap tank top feel it has and the inappropriate length. It just looks as if Gwyneth put on a skirt and a tank top and went out the door in a hurry.
4. Lara Flynn Boyle
NO. That is pretty much all we have to say to Lara Flynn Boyle when it comes to this mess of a dress. That’s what something from her entourage should have told her. A tutu with ballerina shoes is something a 6 year-old girl would wear to the Oscars, not a grown woman!
3. Selma Blair
Dear Selma, it’s the Oscars, not a college party where you’re trying to get some guy’s attention! This has to be one of the worst Oscar dresses ever! A tip for anyone who is thinking about wearing fringes at the Oscars – don’t!
2. Pamela Anderson
We thought long and hard whether to include Pamela Anderson in this top, because this is about the worst Oscar dresses and she’s not wearing a dress, more like an outfit that would be appropriate for the Sweet 16 party. But we decided to include Pam, because she’s just too funny. We wonder what went through hear head at the moment she decided to wear this outfit. Not much, we believe.
We just had to feature Cher twice on our list of worst Oscar dresses, because of this outrageous costume/outfit. I mean, who in their right minds wears denim at the Oscars? Granted, it wasn’t for the Oscar ceremony, but an Oscar party, but still. That outfit would have been appropriate for some youth awards, not Elton John’s party!
What did you think of these worst Oscar dresses? Are they really that bad? Do you know any that are worse than these? How about you leave us a comment and tell us what they are?
