 While the colour of her Vera Wang gown was absolutely stunning at the 2010 Academy Awards, Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron got fashion followers jumping out of their seats with the designer's rendition of the 'boob buns' on her costume. It was definitely one of the 'what was she thinking moments!'.

[caption id="attachment_786850"] This musician from Iceland is know to sport outrageous outfits in general, but what she wore to the Academy Awards in 2001 was the ultimate dress disaster. Her skirt was made of feather, and the strap of the dress was a swan's neck and head. Perhaps, she wanted to audition for a role in 'Swan Lake' right then and there. [/caption]

 Of her YSL gown that she wore to the 2009 Oscars, Kate Winslet's daughter Mia reportedly told the actress that she didn't approve of the dress. Interestingly, Kate dismissed the criticism saying that during the then-current global economic meltdown, she chose to wear whatever the designers created for her, instead of being overtly choosy.
