Most Bizarre Celebrity Red Carpet Looks From The 1980s


Nowadays, it’s rare to see a truly terrible fashion faux pas on the red carpet. Most 21st century celebs hire full-time stylists and have qualified glam squads who ensure they never have a hair out of place. Back in the 80s, however, red carpet fashion was much more of a free-for-all.

Back in the day, actresses and singers would turn up to glamorous events wearing some truly chaotic looks. Here are some of the most bizarre celeb red carpet fashions from the 1980s.

10. Cher, 1986

Pictured above is Cher at the Academy Awards in March 1986. To mark the occasion, she wore a (large) black feather headdress, a jewel-encrusted harness, and a side-slit skirt paired with black boots. The outfit was created by designer Bob Mackie.

Although this is undoubtedly an iconic and memorable look, there’s a lot going on here. Arguably too much. At least Cher liked it, anyway: “This was one of my favourite outfits […] I loved the whole thing,” she said.

9. Jessica Lange, 1983

Jessica Lange won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress back in 1983 – but she wasn’t winning any awards for her fashion sense.

It takes a lot to make Lange look bad, but this dress managed it. This shapeless, shiny, and sage green number made her look frumpy and thoroughly unstylish. Thankfully, this proved to be a little blip at the start of her career – the majority of Lange’s red carpet looks have been much, much more flattering.

8. Meryl Streep, 1983

Like Jessica Lange, acting legend Meryl Streep turned up to the 1983 Academy Awards in a dress that resembled a sack.

The dress certainly doesn’t do beautiful Streep justice. The gold sequins look garish, while the fit isn’t doing her any favours. Streep went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actress that night, a huge achievement which thankfully overshadowed any talk about how awful her outfit was.
