In 2019, Sarah Jessica Parker appeared on the red carpet wearing a stunning pink floor-length dress paired with equally stunning shoes. The actress chose to wear mismatched heels, one of which matched the color of the dress, while the other was a golden yellow version. Perhaps she was trying to recreate a fashion faux pas of her famous character, Carrie Bradshaw, who once wore mismatched shoes in an episode of Sex and the City.

2. Zendaya


At the 2019 Met Gala, Zendaya redefined red-carpet fashion with her enchanting appearance. She dressed up as Cinderella, wearing a breathtaking Tommy Hilfiger gown that paid homage to the beloved Disney character. Onlookers were left spellbound. The gown’s powder blue tulle overlay, corseted bodice, and exaggerated sleeves mirrored the iconic outfit of the animated princess. Zendaya’s look stood out thanks to her stylist Law Roach’s magical touch. He attended the gala dressed as the Fairy Godmother.


Roach waved a ’wand,’ emitting smoke, and Zendaya’s gown came to life. The dress twinkled and gradually illuminated from the bottom, capturing the essence of Cinderella’s magical transformation. This innovative and imaginative approach to fashion not only showcased Zendaya’s style but also demonstrated the theatrical and transformative power of couture on the red carpet.

Elle Fanning is known for her quirky fashion choices. She stepped out in a pair of unconventional egg-shaped heels that turned heads and defied the norms of conventional footwear. The unique creation blended eccentricity with style and added a touch of campy charm to her chic outfit from The Row. Despite their unique shape, Fanning effortlessly paired the heels with her outfit, demonstrating her natural ability to pull off even the quirkiest fashion statements with grace and confidence.

8. Elsa Hosk

The Swedish model wore a stunning dress by Viktor & Rolf that turned heads on the red carpet. The strapless bodice was adorned with two elegant bows cinched around the waist, and the full-layered netted skirt gracefully pooled on the floor, creating a mesmerizing silhouette as she walked.

She wore a sophisticated and extravagant gown, complemented by exquisite yet understated accessories. The dazzling silver necklace from Messika added a touch of sparkle to her look, leaving a lasting impression on fashion enthusiasts and critics alike.

9. Heidi Klum

At the Avatar: The Way of Water red carpet premiere, Heidi Klum wore a stunning silver tulle gown by Lever Couture. The gown featured sculptural sleeves and an asymmetrical bottom half, with excess tulle material cut into thick fringe strips, creating a sense of movement and fluidity.

A daring thigh-high slit added allure to the ensemble. The gown’s silver fabric and architectural structure created the illusion of cascading water, perfectly aligning with the film’s theme. Klum completed her glamorous look with clear heels and diamond-encrusted studs. Her commitment to the Avatar theme extended to her hairstyle.

At the Madrid premiere of her film No Hard Feelings, Jennifer Lawrence wore a beige midi dress designed by Loewe that played tricks on the eyes. The dress, which is part of the brand’s Fall/Winter 2023 womenswear collection, showcased a blend of 2D and 3D effects, captivating onlookers with its visual intrigue. The strapless dress created a puzzling illusion: when viewed from the front, it appeared completely flat, resembling a 2D image.

However, when Lawrence turned sideways, the dress revealed its true 3D nature, creating a noticeable gap between the fabric and her body. This unique design challenges conventional perceptions of fashion and demonstrates Lawrence’s penchant for avant-garde style. She paired the dress with black stilettos and emerald-colored earrings, maintaining a minimalist yet captivating aesthetic, making her a standout presence on the red carpet.

11. Pamela Anderson

These sculptural heels, a true fusion of art and fashion, are constructed from a clear perspex wedge, creating an illusion that challenges the boundaries of conventional design. What makes these shoes truly extraordinary is the placement of a striking red stiletto heel, deliberately positioned to give the illusion of being broken. The deliberate dissonance between the elegant red heel and the transparent wedge creates a captivating visual contrast, making these shoes a genuine work of art.
