Dame Helen Mirren is proof that style improves with age. The 74-year-old British actor only grows more fashionable as the years go by - as 2019 showcased. The London-born star has celebrated a truckload of sartorial wins this year including a super chic winter white ensemble in New York City last night. Clad in an ensemble by The Row - the fashion label launched by former child stars Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in 2006 - Mirren was every inch the Hollywood style sensation. It’s not a cheap get-up, mind up. The Nika Draped Cady Maxi Skirt rings in at £2,360, the Hern Asymmetric Cashmere-Blend Cardigan at £1,680 and the Olive Cashmere Sweater at £1,220. A statement pearl necklace and a made-to-order £1,746.54 bag by Tyler Ellis completed the look. Other winning looks the actor has sported this year include a canary yellow, custom gown by Lady Gaga-s go-to designer Brandon Maxwell and a polka dot semi-sheer look by the British brand Goat, which both the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex have previously worn. And who can forget the gorgeous, pink Schiaparelli gown Mirren wore to the Oscars in February. But, it was a teal, puff-sleeve, floor-length satin jacket by Badgley Mischka that the Oscar-winner wore to the ‘Catherine the Great’ TV show premiere in October.
This month, Keira Knightley made her post-baby red carpet debut, Angelina Jolie wowed in numerous dresses while on her 'Maleficent' promo tour and Anne Hathaway dressed her baby bump in a gorgeous, Oscar de la Renta top.
Supersized dresses seem to be having a moment. The red carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2019 is covered in frothy, attention-grabbing gowns, with stars including Indian film star Deepika Padukone and Thai A-lister Sririta Jensen posing for photos in outrageously over-sized creations.
If we ever got to walk the red carpet at the Oscars, we can imagine it’d be hard to strike a balance between elegant and a bit dull, or striking and garish. But through the years, celebrities and their stylists weren’t thinking about these things at all, and instead defied both the rules of fashion and, seemingly, gravity. Here are some of the worst Oscar dresses ever to have graced the red carpet. Brace yourself.
