above: Sally Kirkland never fails to wear some sort of monstrosity to the Oscars
As I watch today’s Red Carpet for the 85th Oscars, I’ve decided I have to share with you the absolute most hideous dresses from the past – in no particular order. Several sites and blogs feature the ugliest dresses ever worn to the Oscars, but, as is typical, I disagree with many of them. So, I’ve decided to post my own pics of what I feel are the 20 most hideous frocks ever worn to the Academy Awards.
Ugliest Oscar Dresses Of All Time
View at your own risk.
Helena Bonham Carter:
Lara Flynn Boyle:
Bonus: I initially didn’t include this because I don’t like mocking someone who is not around to defend herself, but Anna Nicole’s tight turquoise velour dress would be my 21st pick. It looks cheap – and more absorbent than a Bounty paper towel:
You don’t see many dresses this ugly anymore, especially on the likes of big celebs who, after making the worst-dressed list for that year, wised up and hired stylists. Demi Moore and Kim Basinger (both of whom designed the dresses you see them wearing here) never made as bad a fashion faux pas again.
During tonight’s Oscar’s broadcast, I’m expecting the ugliest visual offenses to be Botox injections and plastic surgery.
