Author: Vladislav Railes
It is always a delight to see celebrities show up in events with strikingly beautiful and eye-catching attires. From the red carpets to award ceremonies, celebrities never fail to amaze us with their dashing looks. Let’s dive in the celebrity fashion and explore the most fascinating looks!
Lady Gaga meat dress
Let's start with the biggest fashion statement made by Lady Gaga at 2010’s MTV Music Awards.
Lady Gaga's iconic meat dress, designed by Franc Fernandez in collaboration with House of Gaga and Brandon Maxwell, made a powerful statement about the US's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Gaga wanted to demonstrate that if people were willing to die for their country, it didn't matter how they identified. The dress, which was made of 50 pounds of rib and steak, received much attention, becoming an instant hit. The look was so popular that it catapulted Gaga to international fame and many have tried to replicate it, but none have been able to truly recreate the statement it made.
The lesson to be learned from this statement is to include details that reflect your message or personality, that mean something, in your look. Catch eyes and be excitingly beautiful!
Lady Gaga's Egg Dress
Lady Gaga’s history of fashionable moments has been nothing short of egg-cellent. Let's cover another fascinating look of hers!
The “House of Gucci” star has made countless impressions with her looks, but there is one particularly iconic look Gaga revisited for British Vogue — and it’s not the meat dress. “We would call this an outfit,” she said of the infamous 2011 entrance, which featured a vessel designed by Hussein Chalayan. “I was very particular about the way the fashion looked for this performance,” Gaga added. She explained the crew had to find the correct latex material from a bus company, who used it to cover the seats of their busses.
The singer shared that she was in the egg for three days ahead of the awards show, and she would avoid talking to people in order to stay focused.
In the early days of her career, Gaga wore the same three outfits for five years as she couldn’t afford the high-fashion pieces. She also wanted to be instantly recognizable. And that mission was achieved, as she demonstrated when she won three trophies at the award show for her performance of “Born This Way”.
Anya Taylor-Joy's green dress
Anya Taylor-Joy stole the show at the 2021 Golden Globes when she appeared in a stunning emerald green creation custom-made by Dior's creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. The eye-catching ensemble was expertly styled by Law Roach and consisted of a gorgeous lurex gown with an alluring plunging neckline, delicate thin straps and a curve-hugging fit. The floor-sweeping cape and classic court shoes were crafted from the same fabric as the dress.
To complete the look, the Last Night in Soho star accessorized with $1 million of Tiffany & Co. diamonds and sky-high heels. It took three Dior workers 300 hours to craft the belted silhouette in the atelier, which was inspired by a look from the autumn/winter 2018 couture collection. The dress also featured a low, scooped back with cross-over straps that drew even more attention to the actress' beautiful look.
Jennifer Lawrence's wedding dress
Jennifer Lawrence recently tied the knot with her fiancé Cooke Maroney in a stunning, exclusive ceremony with 150 guests at the luxurious Belcourt of Newport, a mansion designed by renowned American architect Richard Morris Hunt. The bride wore a dress from French fashion house Dior, which was held in its own room at the Hotel Viking. The Dior design team flew in the day before the wedding and loaded the dress into a car the morning of. Jennifer had previously chosen a L Wells Bridal gown for her engagement party - her cousin Lauren Wells, known as L Wells in the industry, had shown at the One Fine Day Bridal Market the previous year, and Jennifer had gone along to help her bump in. It was assumed that L Wells was a shoe-in for the gown, but Jennifer also had a long-standing relationship with Dior, which ended up being her choice. The dress was heavily embellished and paparazzi photos revealed the top half of the design.
Scarlett Johansson's red dress
Scarlett Johansson wowed her fans at the 76th Venice Film Festival when she showed up wearing a dazzling red sequinned strapless gown by Céline. Her hair stylist, Davy Newkirk, added a modern touch to the look with slicked-back hair, and makeup artist Franke Boyd used Tom Ford beauty products to create a bronze smokey eye. The overall effect was stunning, and left many of her fans in awe.
Johansson also revealed that her personal experience of going through a divorce had informed her performance in the movie “Marriage Story”, which follows a couple through a breakup. During a press conference, she shared that when she first met with the director Noah Baumbach, she had just gone through the divorce and couldn't help but complain to him about it.
Overall, Johansson's look at the Venice Film Festival was praised by her fans, who appreciated the effort she put into her outfit and admired the way she used her own experience to add depth to her performance.
