45 Memorable Award Show Outfits

From Disney-Inspired Dresses to Modern Mermaid Frocks

— January 8, 2015 — Pop Culture
These memorable award show outfits range from Disney-themed ball gowns to modern mermaid frocks that were seen at a number of prestigious events. With the 2015 Golden Globes just around the corner, fashion fans are in anticipation for what's to come on the red carpet this Sunday.

Whether reminiscing about the most sophisticated or outrageous red carpet looks from the last few years, this list celebrates opulence. While its music award show examples appear more daring and youthful, its more polished award show outfits are associated with SAG, Golden Globes and Oscars ceremonies. These events call for a more formal and mature look that is classically elegant overall.

From the vintage-themed to the sculptural, these memorable red carpet ensembles push boundaries with interesting shapes, electric hues or outrageous styles that will garner press attention.
