From Fashion Offenders to Hollywood's Best Dressed List: Our Red Carpet MIP's

What do we expect from our celebrities when they step onto the red carpet? Fierce fashions, immaculate hair and complimentary makeup. The celebrities listed here have made questionable choices along the years but have seemed to find their style groove. That or they’ve hired a fabulous stylist – we don’t care either way. So who has arisen from the depths of red carpet ridiculousness?

Jennifer Hudson:

This Dreamgirl looked more like a nightmare during her American Idol days back in 2004. This casual outfit is better suited for a trip Costco, not a red carpet engagement. Flash forward to 2010, and this Oscar winning actress is hitting fashion high notes in this slimming Victoria Beckham number.

Get the “after” look:

Try the black, skirted dress look with this Alice + Olivia – Victoria Peplum dress ($264) – it’s a big trend for fall.

Jessica Biel:

We’ve already told you about how far Jessica Biel has come since her days of 7th Heaven – and here is a not-so-friendly reminder. Jessica’s high-waisted, silk banded slacks paired with a matching crochet halter are more like 7th Hell if you ask us. A few years, and a hot boyfriend, later and Jessica was one of the hottest ladies on the Oscars red carpet in this Oscar de la Renta gown.

Get the “after” look:

Try Jessica’s pretty pink red carpet look at home with this Splendid Jersey maxi dress ($93, down from $155). It’s the perfect party hostess dress – bold, comfy and glamorous.


In 2000, Pink, complete with a spiky pint ‘do, appeared at the MTV Movie Awards in one of the worst red carpet looks we’ve ever seen. A decade later, the singer still marches to the beat of her own drum, but does so occasionally in knock-out floor length gowns, like the one she wore to the Grammy’s this year.

Get the “after” look:

Adrianna Papell Ombré Chiffon Sheath dress ($188)

Victoria Beckham:

In the days of Spice Girls, Victoria wasn’t very Posh. In this too-tight skirt, fur-everything ensemble she looks more trashy than posh-like. Fast forward a few years, and Beck’s wife is the hottest, sveltest woman on the red carpets and elsewhere. She is always in 4 inch heels and done up – just the way we like our celebrities.

Try her polished look at home with this chic Walter Linen-blend shift dress ($134, down from $268)
