The Most Controversial Celebrity Red Carpet Outfits

Red carpet outfits are celebrities' way of presenting their bold style. It's time of year when people wait to see some experimentation. Subtle and standard dresses usually go unnoticed or disliked for a red-carpet look. Yet some celebrities have gone overboard with their choice of outfit, creating a controversy. 


For some, it's just another way of getting fame – negative publicity is a publicity. For us, these are nothing but dressing fails. Not every experiment turns out successful, we understand. But failures on red-carpet are a big NO.

Here we have compiled some most controversial outfits celebrities dared to show-off on red-carpet. 

  1. 1 Katty Perry

    Over the years, Katty Perry has also gained a reputation among the media for being unpredictable regarding her dressing sense. Here she is dressed as a red priestess with side mirrors on her ears. This look is not even fit for a Halloween party.

  2. 2 Lady Gaga

    Lady Gaga is known for her bizarre and unexpected dressing. She's done it so many times that something like this is expected of her now. Here she can be seen making an attempt to pull off a pink burqa.

  3. 3 Kim Kardashian

    Kim Kardashian's is a queen of controversy. Her revealing dresses and strange romantic relationships are all the billionaire girl is famous for. But this red-carpet look is revealing things that are best to be kept covered.

  4. 4 Jennifer Lopez

    J-Lo is always in the highlight for her perfect dressing sense. However, this one time at the Oscars, she decided to show a little extra skin. The look, that seems to be inspired by nymphs, is short of grace and poise J-Lo is famous for.

  5. 5 Madonna

    At the Grammys in 2015, Madonna wore a revealing dress designed from leather and lace only. She was put in the line of fire for many days by the media.

  6. 6 Nicki Minaj

    Nicki Minaj decided to stand out at the Grammys (not for the right reasons) by wearing a head-to-toe leopard print dress. Her matching hair, leggings, and shoes made it even more unbearable.

  7. 7 Beyoncé

    Beyonce can always be found in the top ranks of best-dressed celebs. However, she often does rather bold experiments with her dressing that land her into trouble.

  8. 8 Bjork, 2001

    Whilst Bjork wore a swan dress to the Oscars red carpet which received criticism for being revealing and weird at the same time.

  9. 9 Lizzie Gardiner

    American Express provided Lizzy's designers with 254 expired cards to be used in this dress. We still don't have any idea how she sat while wearing this.

  10. 10 Roselyn Sanchez

    Roselyn decided to show her features in a rather bold fashion on the red carpet.
