Worst Red Carpet Fashions at the Oscars
When it comes to the Oscars, it’s less about the awards and more about the dresses especially when they’re bad and 2009 was no exception making it a banner year for some frightful fashion. Beyonce certainly showed off her curves in this black dress with gold accents but she looks like she’s wearing her grandmother’s curtains. The same goes for Jessica Biel in this unflattering frumpy strapless ivory colored floor length gown.
Amy Adam’s choice of a deep red dress looks great against her skin and hair but did she dig this out of Spiderman’s closet. The usually sheik Sarah Jessica Parker is 45 making her a little too old for the Disney princess look in this belted chiffon ball gown. Miley Cyrus on the other hand continues to not dress her age as well trying too hard to look a lot older than 16 in this silver and white tiered gown.
And celebrities haven’t fared well on the red carpet at previous years events either Gwyneth Paltrow went with this transparent number in 2002. The dress did make headlines but not for the right reasons. Uma Thurman must have been wishing for an Oscar when she hit the red carpet in 2004 wearing this Jeannie style layered number. Scarlet Johansson absent of a smile made this sad dress look even worse.
The crinkles on the front put this dress on our bad frog list minus the broken foot, Melanie Griffith made a fashion fault part in 2005 with this mermaid inspired gown but at least she matched the nail polish. Naomi Watts looked colorless walking the carpet in this skin toned gown in 2006. It’s not offensive but it’s not glam enough for this ultra posh event.
Another 2006 blunder was Charlize Theron’s not too sexy Batman look and that shoulder ball, don’t even get it started. Kristen Dunst look beautiful from the neck up at the 2007 Oscars but going down wasn’t as pleasant of a sight. Ann Hathaway looked more like a wrapped gift at the2007 awards, a pretty delicate laced dress spoiled with this over sized bow.
Helen Bonham Carter got some tough comments from this look at 2006, the 80’s hair and unmatching dress bag and shoes made this look such a disaster, we’re not even going to show you who made it. Let’s hope that woman of Hollywood fair better in 2010.
