Lists of 'worst dresses' worn by celebrities to Oscar awards

Some stars aren’t afraid to get a bit wacky with their Oscars looks! There have definitely been a number of looks that stood out for being ‘out-there’ at the Oscars over the years, whether it’s due to bold colors, crazy cutouts or interesting accessories. Here are lists of the worst dressed celebrities in the Oscars awards.

St. Vincent

St. Vincent took a risk at the 2018 Academy Awards in this Saint Laurent look. It is hard to hate anything coming from the iconic fashion house, but this runway ensemble didn't make that much sense.

Faith Hill

Faith Hill dress for the 74th Academy Awards resembled a rainbow cake explosion. I'm not sure what made Hill decide on this look, but it's a hard pass from me.

Uma Thurman

The actress looked like she was drowning in her dress at the 76th Annual Academy Awards. And you might want to ask: Are the gold and blue embroidered pieces remnants of a vest? I'm confused.

Whoopi Goldberg

This is a very poor colour display. When I saw this dress I was like " Sorry, Whoopi.


Icelandic artist Bjork's swan dress is probably the most iconic on the list of worst dressed celebrities. The look was designed by Macedonian designer Marjan Pejoski, who actually made two copies of it as it could not be dry cleaned. One was auctioned off for $9,500 in 2005.

Kate Hudson

Kate hudson looked unrecognizable (not in a good way) at the 2001 event, when she stepped out in this gray dress with a fringe neck shawl.

Sally Kirkland

There's a laundry list of things that aren't great about this dress. But the rhinestone bindi was an extra layer of WOW. The designer who selected this dress for Sally Kirkland did not do well

Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren was the "Belle" of the ball in this yellow ruffled number at the 2009 Academy Awards.

Lizzy Gardiner

Lizzy Gardiner, a costume designer wore a dress made out of gold American Express cards to the 1995 Academy Awards and stole the show (not in a good way). The cards were real, but had expired. That same year, she won an Oscar for Best Costume Design for The Adventures of Priscilla and Queen of the Desert, but in an ironic twist of fate, this dress saw her made it into the worst dressed lists.

Edy Williams

This is probably the most ridiculous outfits worn by a celebrity to an award. The year was1974. The outfit is a leopard printed bikini underneath a spotted furry coat.

Kelly Ripa

The star wore a strapless Christian Siriano creation to the 2018 Academy Awards. From the front, the gown looked great. From the back? It looked like something else, something not cute.

Susan Sarandon

Susan sarandon arrived to the 1996 Oscars in a Dolce & Gabbana gold gown. She matched the Academy Award statue.

Sally Kirkland

Sally Kirkland made it into this list for the second time. The actress looked like she was ready to fly away in this semi-sheer multi-colored dress at the 2007 Academy Awards.

Geena Davis

Geena Davis looked like a bride who ran away from the church at the 1992 Academy Awards.

Demi Moore

This is a disaster outfit. At least Moore can say she was an early adopter of biker shorts.

Kim Basinger

The write up on her right sleeves should make this dress an uncomfortable outfit for anyone.


Cher wore this dominatrix-meets-fortune teller outfit to the 1986 Academy Awards and it was just as memorable as you'd expect.

Hilary Swank

Hilary Swank's Dior dress was more suited for prom than the Academy Awards.

Lady Gaga

The highlight of the 2015 red carpet was definitely Lady Gaga's red gloves, which spawned plenty of memes. The red gloves didn't match up with the gown

Lizzy Gardiner

Lizzy made this list for the second time. It was 1995 and apparently plastic was really in for this costume designer.
