Celebrities are celebrated people because they’re not quite like the rest of us. Celebrities are generally a little more unique, a little more talented, a little better looking, and in many cases, a lot more outrageous. A LOT more outrageous.
If there was ever any doubt to this truism about the celebrity knack for attention getting outrageousness, one quick look at some of the most eye-popping celebrity outfits worn at red carpet events over the past ten years will surely put any doubts to rest.
“The Meat Dress” is now part of the modern vernacular, due to the flamboyantly out there pop icon Lady Gaga, who wore an incredibly outrageous dress made of real meat for the 2010 Grammys. The flavorful dress was made of slices of raw beef, and it was later preserved into pieces of jerky and displayed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.
Pamela Anderson, almost there dress
It isn’t really hard for Pamela Anderson to wear an outrageous outfit, as long as it reveals her eye-popping cleavage, but we choose the very sheer, skimpy white dress she wore at a recent arrival at LAX in Los Angeles.
Sometimes pink-haired, Hip-Hop Diva Nicky Minaj seems to have redefined the term ‘outrageous,” as far as her fashion choices go. For truly strange outrageousness, we chose her red dress and cape outfit, which she wore to the 2012 Grammys. The Versace dress was apparently an homage to the Pope. We don’t know why.
Pretty pop star Katy Perry is another celebrity known for her flamboyant outfits, usually matched to the color of her ever-changing amazing hair. Like Minaj, it’s hard to choose between the many colorfully outrageous outfits Perry wears, but we’ll pick the “Candy Girl” outfit from her “California Gurls” video.
MIA at the 2009 Grammys
Perhaps it’s just that pregnancy and outrageously revealing outfits don’t quite go together. That seemed to be case when British singer MIA appeared at the Grammys in 2009 wearing a black and white mini dress with a see-through mesh top. Since the singer was due to give birth, the dress certainly highlighted her the pregnancy in a very obvious way.
The singing, dancing Jackson sister made fashion history when she experienced a ‘wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Superbowl. Janet’s black leather gladiator/motorcycle gang outfit was fetching, but the malfunction, which revealed her naked breast, made it one for the books.
Yes, celebrities are outrageous but also outrageously entertaining, which is why we keep paying attention to them, especially when what they are wearing if pretty outrageous.
Some Final Notes To Ponder
Notes to ponder as we think again about outrageously out-there celebrity gowns?
• Rethink revealing outfits when close to a baby due date
• Keep the salami in the fridge
• Try to decide which hair colors go best with your outfit, in advance
