Gallery: The Worst Oscar Fashion In Recent Memory

Celine Dion at the 1999 Oscars. Not quite a dress, but not quite a look you'd want wear either.

With the Oscars just around the corner, it’s fun to make predictions as to who will win and even more fun to sit down and watch the red carpet dresses. What an actor wears the night of the Oscars is perfect fodder for the next morning as the media and celebrity magazines tear apart the outfits from the evening before. What a darling world in which live!

Since there’s no escaping the inevitable fact that there will be a bad dress (or two or three) on Sunday night, we might as well pay homage to the outfits of the past that really made us question the sanity of these actors. It’s easy to blame it on their stylists, but as some point you have to take responsibility for the fact that you have eyes and a mirror and you refused to use both of them.

Here are some of the “winning” looks from the past couple decades.

    I don’t get why Bjork’s swan dress is ugly when Lady GaGa where shit like that on a regular basis and people just kinda roll with it.

    wears*** wow, what an embarrassing typo. sorry.

      Haha. And isn’t it annoying that you can’t go back and fix your typos?!

      I agree with you. Although I’ve always had a soft spot for Bjork and Gaga not so much.

    I will defend the swan dress till the day I die. It livened things up and 11 years later we are still talking about it.

    A lot of it comes down to presence and personality. I am also a fan of the swan dress, and she can pull it off, because she is freekin’ Bjork. I also kinda dig Uma Thurman’s peasant thing.

    The other things are hideous, yes, but we need red carpet don’ts, because they make the show interesting.

    Uma Thurman had a great outfit while Bjork’s outfit was terrible.

    One guy’s opinion but I think Bjork looks hot in that dress. Now Helen, on the other hand, could dress up in a potato sack, and I would still think she looks beautiful.

      Yep, big typo. I meant Helena of course.
