14 Celebrities Who Sent a Curious Message to the World Without Opening Their Mouths

8 months ago

We never cease to admire the stunning outfits donned by celebrities. However, these clothes often carry deeper significance. Through subtle details, stars convey their love for those dear to them, show respect for their national culture, and serve as reminders of the memorable characters they’ve brought to life in movies and TV shows.

While visiting the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Duchess of Cambridge donned a cream dress designed by Self-Portrait. An interesting detail on the dress caught attention — intricate pineapple-shaped embroidery adorning the pockets. This choice wasn’t merely about her affinity for exotic fruits. On social media platforms, pineapples have evolved into a symbol in the battle against infertility. Women use pineapple images in their avatars and within dedicated groups related to in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Julia Roberts


For the premiere of Ticket to Paradise in 2022, Julia Roberts wore a dress that had a print of chalk drawings. There were hearts on the fabric with letters and numbers, and all the symbols had a meaning.

For example, JR+DM are the initials of the actress and her husband (Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder). Also, there were the first letters of the names of her children — and the numbers are a series of dates that are important to Roberts, like 2002, which was the year of her wedding.

Blake Lively


The transformer dress Blake Lively wore at the 2022 Met Gala was a reference to Gossip Girl. This series made the actress famous, so she reminded everyone about it with the details of her dress.

When she revealed the dress’s underside in turquoise, you could see constellations on it. They are the same as on the ceiling at Grand Central Station.

Blake explained, “Grand Central felt like a sort of really neat full-circle moment because [in] the first shot of Gossip Girl.”

Jennifer Lopez

The dress the star wore as she promised Ben Affleck forever had a special meaning for both of them. Jennifer Lopez said it was just a dress from an old movie. The old movie was definitely Jersey Girl, which she and Affleck starred in at the beginning of their relationship.

Margot Robbie

In 2018, Margot Robbie wore a floral dress with an unusual rabbit-shaped purse. It was a tribute to the film she was in, Peter Rabbit.

Emilia Clarke

For the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke wore a dress with the inscription, “Leave your door open for me. I might sleepwalk into your arms.” Fans didn’t know how the story would end yet, and Clarke posted the photo of this outfit on social media and said that it contained a spoiler about the fate of the Mother of Dragons.

But the inscription was just an idea a Valentino designer had. It had no connection to the George Martin universe. But the color of the dress looked like the Night King and his Army of the Dead. Maybe this was the spoiler because her character died at the end.

Meghan Markle

For an event in 2018, Meghan Markle wore a cape dress and had an acrylic clutch. Look at the pattern on it — born on August 4, Markle is a Leo, and the embellishment on her clutch recreates that very constellation, with crystals tracing out the stars.

Claire Danes

For the premiere of The Essex Serpent, the actress wore a dress with a certain mythical creature on it. Of course, it’s a reference to the series. Claire Danes’ character was looking for information about the sea creature people in Essex believed in.

Taylor Swift


Fans of the singer saw a special meaning in the outfit she wore for the 2022 VMAs. They thought it was a tribute to the video for her song, “Look What You Made Me Do.”

In the video, she was in a bathtub full of diamonds. Also, in 2022, the song turned 5 years old.

Elizabeth Olsen

The dress Elizabeth Olsen wore for the 2021 Emmy Awards had a special meaning. She meant to say that she was finally confident about herself and her name. Over the course of her entire career, she tried to keep a distance from her famous sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. She tried to make sure that her name was never near her sisters’ names.

And today, she is no longer afraid of saying that she’s related to the legendary sisters. So she wore this dress, which was developed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Serena Williams


The tennis player donned a highly symbolic outfit for her latest tournament. The bejeweled bodice was meticulously designed to resemble the night sky under which the match unfolded. Meanwhile, the six-layered flippy skirt served as a tribute to Serena’s six previous victories in the tournament. Adding to the significance, her Nike trainers featured diamond-encrusted Nike swooshes, which cleverly incorporated the words “mama” and “queen.”

Elle Fanning

Elle Fanning wore unusual Charlotte Olympia shoes to the Maleficent premiere. The model is referred to as Sleeping Beauty, and Elle’s character, Aurora, is on the shoes.

Elle reminded her fans about this role with her casual clothes. For example, she was seen in an airport in Japan in a dress with Aurora on it.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker, known for playing Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, recently made a big fashion statement at the New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala.

She wore a stunning Zac Posen dress and caught everyone’s attention with her unique choice of shoes — mismatched heels from her own collection. This reminded fans of a special moment from the show and showed how Carrie Bradshaw’s style still inspires Parker.

Each time she walks the red carpet, Sarah Jessica Parker wows us by blurring the lines between her real-life self and her famous TV character, making a lasting impact on the fashion world.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

For the premiere of the Wednesday series, the actress made an entrance in an elegant floor-length dress that hugged her figure gracefully. The choice seemed to pay homage to her character, known for donning similar silhouettes in darker hues. Sharing her thoughts on Instagram, Zeta-Jones remarked, “My Maticevski gown was my ying to my Morticia Addams yang.”

When it comes to clothing with hidden messages and meaningful details, it appears that royals have a particular penchant for such attire.
