Jennifer Lopez wore this Green chiffon Versace dress to the 42nd Grammy Awards. The dress along with Elizabeth Hurley’s Black Versace dress is what made Versace a household name after the media attention this classic look received! Lopez still owns the dress and a duplicate has been on display at The Grammy Museum since 2015.

When Elizabeth Hurley wore “THAT” Black Versace dress to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994, she immediately became recognised worldwide as the dress got global media coverage. Hurley said that the dress (which is now one of Versace’s most famous dresses), was actually a favour from the designer brand as she could not afford to purchase one! The dress was one that was left in Hugh Grant’s press office as they didn’t have any other evening wear.
2. Elizabeth Hurley
Lady Gaga wore the infamous meat dress to the 2010 Video Music Awards. The dress was designed by Franc Fernandez and styled by Nicola Formichetti. The look was voted as Time’s top fashion statement of 2010, beating Kate Middleton’s engagement dress that same year!

Angelina Jolie’s leg caught the most attention when she wore this Black Atelier Versace gown to the 84th Academy Awards. Her leg became a trending topic on twitter instantly, with a twitter account even being made dedicated to the pose called Angie’s Right Leg!

Björk wore the iconic swan dress to the 73rd Academy Awards and even mimicked laying an egg on the carpet! The dress was designed by Macedonian designer Marjan Pejowski and Björk even wore it on the cover of her album Vespertine in 2001. The dress has been parodied countless times from an episode in Hannah Montana, to Sonny with a Chance, White Chicks and even in animations like Fairly Odd Parents and Kim Possible!
Former supercouple, Brit and JT made an iconic statement at the 2001 American Music Awards when they BOTH wore denim on denim! Their look is one of the most famous red carpet moments of the 00s – and even in the top 10 most famous fashion moments EVER!
6. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake
The 2002 dress which Halle Berry wore to the 74th Academy Awards, known as the net dress was designed by Elie Saab. Cosmopolitan cited the dress as one of the best Oscar dresses of all time for showing Halle’s figure but not revealing too much!

The Navy Blue dress Hilary Swank wore to the 77th Academy Awards is best know as the backless Guy Lorache dress. That night, not only did she win the red carpet but she won her second Oscar for Best Actress in Million Dollar Baby!
8. Hilary Swank
Lil Kim wore the purple pasty ensemble at the 1999 Video Music Awards and to this day, we still can’t get over it! It’s one of the most outrageous VMAs red carpet looks but that didn’t stop Miley Cyrus recreating the look as her Halloween costume in 2013!

Cher’s belly dancer inspired outfit which she wore to the 58th Academy Awards is one of the best red carpet fails! (Yes we said BEST FAIL!) Maybe if she wasn’t wearing the hideous wig, she might have (nearly) gotten away with the look.
