Lady Gaga is known for her stunning and theatrical red carpet appearances. Although some find it strange and controversial we stand by them being memorable and iconic. The most recent and powerful one was at the 2019 Met Gala. She showed up on the carpet and started to gradually reveal more and more layers to her look.

One of our favorite things to ever happen on the red carpet is seeing celebrities wearing things that are so outrageous and so out of the box that it pleasantly makes us remember them in the best way possible. Who can forget Lady Gaga's meat dress at the 2010 VMA's? Jared Leto took Gucci to the next level at the 2019 Met Gala, holding his own head, inspired by Gucci's Autumn 2018 runway. Katy Perry also loves her theatrical looks and she was a walking chandelier at the 2019 Met Gala. Jaden Smith also caught everyone by surprise when he held his own cut off hair as he walked the 2017 Met Gala red carpet.

Sometimes you just have to take them off, even if it is at the Cannes Film Festival's red carpet. Heels are painful, and sometimes extremely painful. So we took our hats off to Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart when they didn't hesitate to take their heels off on the red carpet and continue walking barefoot at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and the 2018 Cannes Film Festival respectively.

One of the reasons so many of us love Jennifer Lawrence is her relatability and embracing of her clumsiness. She tripped as she was going up to accept her Oscar win and the next year at the 2014 Oscars, she fell on the red carpet. We feel you Jennifer, heels are hard and exhausting.
