The actress opted for a NSFW outfit for the red carpet. What was she thinking?!

Madonna in 2008

Nice try! While we appreciate the look Madge was trying to for in this dress, the Old Hollywood-inspired number underwhelmed.

Larisa Katz in 2010

Talk about making an entrance! Katz's look is truly a work of art -- in a bad way.

Linda Marraccini in 2010

Wowza! We never realized lime green could look that awful.

Bjork in 2010

Of course the pop star never fails to turn heads with her outrageous looks. This time, she looks like a gigantic flower.

Adriana Karembeu in 2011

This gown is a big pink taffeta mess! Karembeu looks like a giant fluff of cotton candy in this outrageous dress.

Florence Welch in 2013

Polka dot patterns are incredibly hard to pull off -- and we think Welch realized that after this red carpet disaster.

Larisa Katz in 2013

Wowza, she looks like a giant molecule!

Laetitia Casta in 2013

We have no words for this totally weird ensemble. If only Casta could use those wings to fly away ...

Elena Lenina in 2013

This teal ensemble was ruined by Lenina's incredibly bizarre hairstyle. How much hairspray was needed for this look?!

Paris Hilton in 2014

This black-and-white frock is an example of how to not rock patterns.

Karlie Kloss in 2014

The American model was totally feeling herself in this look, but unfortunately we weren't feeling it at all.

Larisa Katz in 2016

The fashion designer reappears years later with this horrific dress, with an even more horrific head piece to match.

Elena Lenina in 2016

Yikes! We don't know what's worse, her gaudy pink dress or her outrageous hair.

Elena Lenina in 2016

Of course one outrageous look wasn't enough. Here is Lenina again in a hair-raising outfit.

Irina Shayk in 2014

The model raised eyebrows with this mismatched look that was super revealing on the bottom and super covered up on top.

Cameron Diaz in 2002

Woah! Cameron Diaz rocked a see-through look that exposed everything underneath her dress.

And if you needed a closer look ...

While we've seen some gorgeous gowns through the years, there have also been some very iconic fashion disasters. International stars make up a significant chunk of our list (of course Bjork made it), but some Americans also managed to make it too.

Paris Hilton's black-and-white mini dress from 2014 was a total miss, while Karlie Kloss also left us shaking our heads with her gaudy getup.

Milla Jovovich missed the dress code memo in 2003 and hit the red carpet in a NSFW look. Bruce Willis, who was still married to Demi Moore at the time, was photographed next to Jovovich and his facial expression perfectly describes how one may feel if they were to see what she was wearing.

Check out the other hair-raising (literally!) looks in the slideshow above.
