10 Famous Women Who Turned Their Backs, Leaving Everyone in Awe

6 months ago

On the red carpets, celebrities showcase breathtaking evening gowns. While some stars prefer dresses of a classic cut, others strive to impress the audience with original designs. Our heroines today have decided to leave a lasting impression by captivating the public with their looks from behind.

The singer caused a sensation with her original back jewelry. The silver spine looked as if it were seamlessly integrated into Rita’s back.

This actress chose an ivory-colored dress with a plunging neckline and fully pleated for the 88th edition of the Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars. The design, by reputed Italian designer Valentino, had a modern and innovative touch that did not take long to catch people’s attention. Even more so after seeing its back cut with covered shoulders but framing an open back in two subtle pleated ruffles.

We have seen her in short dresses, long dresses, with all kinds of cuts, pants, and suits, but nothing compared to this stunning red dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival. It almost made her look like a goddess from Olympus. This work of textile art by designer Alexandre Vauthier is just fabulous.

Thanks to her Versace dress, Kate proved that being a mother twice has not dented her figure on the red carpet. It had a plunging neckline and slits decorated with rhinestones on the sides, delicately highlighting her shape. To top it off, a small white tail, similar to that of a bride. And if she exuded luxury and elegance from the front, the back could not be less.

Cate Blanchett

A dress as fabulous as this one deserves to be seen, so this actress skipped that unwritten protocol that you can not repeat an outfit and wore it more than once, even at the risk of being criticized. The dress was made by Armani, who chose to contrast her sober but magnificent front with an original deep neckline of soft shapes in the back.

Lily Collins


This young and beautiful actress wore a dress by designer Zuhair Murad to the Golden Globes, which was worthy of a fairy tale princess. It was a lovely pale pink dress full of details; flowers, tulle, rhinestones, flight, and transparencies, all so well-structured and combined that it was not overloaded. And as a finishing touch, a delicate open back which almost seems tattooed on the model’s soft skin.


Karlie Kloss


This dress by designer Prabal Gurung that Karlie chose to wear at the Vogue Awards didn’t seem so special at first sight. However, looking at it from other angles, you can quickly tell it’s a masterpiece. This chameleon-like outfit, white on one side, tricolor on the other, and with an exquisite deep-draped back, is the perfect combination of sobriety, asymmetry, and femininity.

Rachel McAdams


For such a special occasion as her first Oscar nomination, she chose an outfit totally up to the task and the color of hope. Perhaps it was an unconscious way to show everyone how much she was looking forward to the award. The August Gett atelier design, although simple, without details, and light and comfortable, had an extremely feminine cut, which fit like a glove on the actress’s body and looked dreamy.

With this beautiful design of the London house Alexander McQueen, the actress confirmed that you could look stunning without revealing too much. No neckline or openings in front, totally closed and without any decoration other than a few gold rhinestones on both shoulders. A demure and stately front for an opposite back; modern, open, and fitted. A dress that is as unique as she is.

The singer opted for a daring dress for the Vanity Fair party. Ciara showcased her stunning figure, but people on the internet immediately started discussing whether it’s acceptable for a wife and mother to step out in such a way.

These stars took a risk by wearing bold outfits and looked stunning. However, sometimes mishaps happen right on the red carpets, and celebrities have to improvise on the spot.
