About This Quiz

Celebrities and fashion go hand in hand. When we watch award shows, we watch just as much for the fashion as the awards themselves. After the shows are over, we watch fashion commentators talk about who got it right and who got it wrong. 

Celebrities famously get it wrong sometimes. Lady Gaga, who was fashion's award-show darling this season, really got it wrong in 2010 with her infamous meat dress at the 2010 MTV Music Awards. She wasn't the only pop diva to make an awkward statement on the red carpet. Songstress Celine Dion wore a too-big fedora and backward suit to the Oscars one year. Some of the men can cause double-take moments too, and not in a good way. In the early '90s, Jon Bon Jovi channeled his inner Prince with a purple velvet tux with too-long leather lapels and cuffs. 

It happens. We all win some and lose some when it comes to our fashion choices, even celebrities armed with personal stylists and glam squads.

We've put together some images of fashion missteps that celebrities have made. Have a look and tell us the names of the stars who made them. Show us how much of a celebrity fashion expert you are! Enjoy!

Alma
Fanny Andersen

For ill or for nil, Bjork's "swan dress" for the 2001 Oscars was a standout on the red carpet. Over 18 years later, the notorious dress was featured in the Met Gala "Camp" exhibit.

Jennifer Aniston
Kate Hudson
Tilda Swinton
Gwyneth Paltrow

Paris Hilton "The Simple Life" star went a little skimpy with this ocean-blue number at the 2003 MTV Awards. Can you name her?
Paris Hilton
Glamour Magazine called this particular look "cringeworthy" in 2013. Socialite and former reality star Paris Hilton must have thought she was headed to the beach instead of an award show.
Nicole Richie
Lindsay Lohan
Hilary Duff

Keira Knightley
Kate Beckinsale
At the 2018 Toronto Film Festival, Kate Beckinsale remembered her vampire roots in a little black cocktail dress with one extra-long flowy sleeve. Fashion pundits didn't know what to make of it.

Christina Aguilera Can you tell us who this R&B/pop diva is?

Victoria Beckham What's the name of this "Posh" lady attending the 2007 MTV Movie Awards?
Katie Holmes
Jessica Alba

Robert Downey This "Ironman" didn't have a solid look at the 1989 Oscars. Who is he?
Ted Danson
Kevin Costner
Sam Rockwell
Robert Downey Jr.
Even having co-presenter Cybill Shepherd on his arm didn't help Robert Downey Jr.'s doomed Mariachi look. The Marvel superhero's loud tuxedo didn't sing and was just a head-scratcher.

Lara Flynn Boyle Can you name this "Twin Peaks" actress?
Lara Flynn Boyle
At the 2003 Golden Globe Awards, Lara Flynn Boyle made a statement on the red carpet when she arrived. It was probably not the one she wanted to make. Not many got the prima-ballerina thing.

Mel B This "Scary" look is brought to you by whom?
Rose McGowan
Mel B
"America's Got Talent," but Mel B didn't have a talent for picking an outfit for the show's live broadcast on August 15, 2017. The peacock-inspired bodysuit looked more appropriate for the Ice Capades than for a fashion moment.
Naomi Campbell
Geri Halliwell

Jennifer Lopez Who is this megastar "from the block?"
Mariah Carey
Shakira
Jennifer Lopez
At this year's Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez underwhelmed fashion critics with the sparkling gown from Ralph and Russo she chose for that evening. The hat just threw people for a loop too.

Amber Heard
Scarlett Johansson

Harry Styles This singer went the wrong direction with this suit. What's his name?

You would think wearing a Gucci suit is a fool-proof way to get on a Best Dressed list. That wasn't the case for Harry Styles when he donned a white Gucci suit with black flowers on it. He even said he regrets it.
Joe Jonas
Niall Horan
Zayn Malik

David Beckham Who is this footballer?
Wayne Rooney
David Beckham

Demi Moore Full "Disclosure" is that this outfit was a fashion no-no. Who wore it?
Mare Winningham
Demi Moore
In the '80s, many people went big or went home when it came to their fashion choices. But Demi Moore's 1989 Oscar look still didn't fly. Bike shorts and a corset top were too much even then.

Molly Ringwald

CeeLo Green Maybe this artist would like to forget this outfit. Could you name him for us?
Big Boi
Ludacris
CeeLo Green

Nicole Kidman Can you tell us who this Australian actress is?
Reese Witherspoon
Mimi Rogers
Naomi Watts
Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman seldom gets it wrong on the red carpet. The 2004 Golden Globe Awards seemed to be an off year for her with this flapper-inspired number. It didn't translate well to the 21st century.

Lena Dunham Maybe she should have talked to her "Girls" before she wore this dress. Who is she?
Allison Williams
Lena Dunham
In 2014, Lena Dunham tried to dress to impress with this Giambattista Valli dress at the Emmys. The poufy pink gown with the flowing train didn't quite do it for the style watchers, though.

Kylie Jenner Even billionaires make fashion mistakes. What's this one's name?

Cyndi Lauper Who is this unusual singer?
Belinda Carlisle
Cyndi Lauper
Cyndi Lauper has always wanted to have fun, but this American Music Awards look back in 2012 didn't get her fun fashion reviews. The half-leather, half-plaid jacket just didn't work.

Diane Keaton Do you know this member of "The First Wives Club"?
Faye Dunaway
Bebe Neuwirth
Diane Keaton
Diane Keaton may have tried to give a shout-out to her "Annie Hall" days with the suit she wore to the 2004 Academy Awards. The long jacket, wingtips, bowler hat and gloves were just a lot.

Shakira Do you recognize this Latina powerhouse?
Becky G
Shakira
Before the 2001 Grammy Award ceremony, Shakira's stylist lied to her beautifully when she told her this gold gown with matching gold boots would work with the fashion critics. They didn't.
Thalia
Paulina Rubio

Marion Cotillard Can you tell us who this French rose is?
Marion Cotillard
Marion Cotillard going understated for an Oscar luncheon in 2015 was understandable. The random green teardrop on her dress right in the middle of a royal blue, black and grayish Christian Dior dress wasn't.
Angelina Jolie
Audrey Tautou
Juliette Binoche

Janet Jackson What's the name of this singer who made you want to "Scream?"
Jennifer Hudson
Michelle Williams
Paula Abdul
Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson made the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show memorable more for her controversial wardrobe "malfunction" than her actual performance. The plastic-looking bustier with the red bra underneath was odd even before that.

Lady Gaga The "Paparazzi" love her. Who is she?
Katy Perry
Taylor Swift
Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga's 2015 Oscar gown wasn't the biggest offender for the fashion police. The super-large red gloves that extended up to her forearm were. Was she doing dishes before the ceremony?
Sia

Kelly Ripa Can you tell us who this morning-show host is?
Megyn Kelly
Kelly Ripa
Kelly Ripa's Christian Siriano gown from the 2018 Oscars landed her on Marie Claire's list of "The Worst Oscar Dresses of All Time." The large pink-and-green bow on the black dress made it pop but not in a good way.

Bebe Rexha Do you know this singer-songwriter?
Maren Morris
Dua Lipa
Kelsea Ballerini
Bebe Rexha
Bebe Rexha's velvet black gown for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards didn't earn her rave reviews with the fashion world. The black tulle fanning out over her shoulders and arms didn't make the statement she wanted.

Heidi Klum Who is this supermodel?
Heidi Klum
You would think supermodels and hosts of fashion shows would always get it right. Heidi Klum was definitely out with her Golden Globes dress this year. The bright flowers on a black dress didn't cut it.
Cindy Crawford
Christy Turlington
Alessandra Ambrosio

Serena Williams Can you tell us who this star athlete is?
Venus Williams
Sloane Stephens
Serena Williams
Serena Williams is Superwoman on the tennis court. But this look off the court may have been her kryptonite. At a Berlei event, she wore one of their sports bras, but the tulle skirt and fishnet tights were just a confusing pairing.
Naomi Osaka

Michael Strahan Could you tell us the name of this former NFL star?
Charles Barkley
Michael Strahan
Michael Strahan must have been remembering his days as a New York Giant with the blue suit. The navy-blue tie and lapels on top of the royal-blue suit didn't work for the 2016 Oscars or the fashion critics.
Sterling Sharpe
Sam Champion

Cameron Diaz Do you remember this "Charlie's Angels" star?
Eva Mendes
Drew Barrymore
Natalie Portman
Cameron Diaz

Cher Do you "Believe" you know her?
Cher
Cher is nothing if not bold and daring for her fashion choices. Her Oscar outfits always gave people something to talk about. At the 1998 Oscars, they talked about the beaded hat with matching dress by Bob Mackie, just not in a good way.
Meryl Steep
Barbra Streisand
Christine Baranski

Terence Howard Can you name this "Empire" star?
Terence Howard
