[Top 10] Craziest pop star outfits!
Becoming a music star can push people to be a bit extravagant or to be over the top, especially in terms of style. Some artists, however, are so creative that even before becoming famous, wore very strange clothing...
Lack of taste or master piece? These wacky experimenters or fashion geniuses (sometimes misunderstood), have understood that their outfits allowed them to stand out from other singers. Sometimes they are laughed at, then at other times they make fashion History by inventing a charismatic character for themselves. An attitude that makes them all more unreal and unreachable, and can bring up admiration - not to say obsession – from some fans.
A brief overview of the most fanciful outfits, for better or for worse, with this Top 10 made by our SongTrivia team. Enough to give you some ideas for your guess the song parties with friends, if you want to dress up of course...
The musical universe of the Icelandic singer Björk is surrealist and often deals nature. So nothing could suit her better than this incredible swan dress, designed by Marjan Pejoski and worn at the Oscars ceremony in 2001. Dazzling!
Billie Eilish will have surprised the 2020 Grammys ceremony as much by her style as by her multiple awards. Her famous black hair with green roots, her ultra-chic, fluorescent streetwear outfit caught everyone's attention. What will she come up with next time?
The singer Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, was a real sensation at the 2018 Met Gala. She had the audacity to wear a gothic dress and a metal necklace featuring Tesla, the company of her billionaire husband Elon Musk. Musk, who accompanied her, even designed the dress!
No one could forget Lady Gaga's provocative dress, invented by Franc Fernandez and Nicola Formichetti, for the MTV VMA's 2010. Covered from head to toe with slices of raw beef, the singer caused an outcry with animal protection associations. However, she defended her gesture by explaining that it was a denunciation of human rights violations. Would you ever imagine yourself going to a friend's house with this for a musical quiz night? Come on, let's open our fridge and find out something we can wear... cheese dress?
Miley Cyrus' outfit at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, and her failed twerk with Robin Thicke, caused a scandal, and unfortunately overshadowed everything else... Even this very daring Versace outfit, worn 2 years later when she was the hostess of the evening.
The MTV VMA's saw the craziest outfits on their red carpet. The rapper and singer Nicki Minaj made a strong appearance in 2011 with this child-ish dress, straight out of a comic book. Maybe a bit "too much"? If you show up with the same outfit at a friend's house for a musical quiz, don't be surprised if they think you've stolen their teddy bear!
The different themes at the Met Galas are the best occasion to go above and beyond. So it was no surprise to see Rihanna make a notable appearance at the 2017 Met evening with this floral dress crated by the house: Comme des garçons. Visually stunning but... can she even sit?
The pop and R'n'B singer Rita Ora apparently didn't have time to choose her outfit before the MTV Europe Music Awards ceremony in London in 2017. Fresh out of the shower, she decided to wear her bathrobe as a dress and kept her towel on her head as a hat!
Katy Perry always wore extravagant outfits on stage. So when she is invited to a Met Gala on the theme "Camp" - a kind of queer humour, associated in particular with drags -, the singer let herself go! Dressing as a chandelier, not the brightest idea some would say…
For the very same ceremony, Nicki Minaj's rival made people talk, with a padded dress so heavy that it needed several men to carry the train! She could easily replace the blue alien singer in The Fifth Element, remember her?
As you can see, there's still a long way to go before you find such an extravagant look for your Guess the song party with your friends... No stress, I'm sure we have something we the cheese dress or toilet paper pants jacket? Let those pop stars be your muse...
