15 Red Carpet Looks That Changed Everything

Getting one woman into one outfit for one evening can be a multi-million dollar affair… so why is it that as more money, resources, and star-power is being pumped into the system, red-carpet looks feel like they're becoming more and more blah?
When the economy of "playing it safe" feels pervasive at every star-studded event, we're particularly thankful for the few iconoclasts who make fancy-pants dressing a daring, whimsical, and mega-fashionable event. Just because the invite says black tie, that doesn't mean you can't wear a see-through pajama set (We love you, Babs!) or lay an egg before the wall of paparazzi (We love you too, Bjork!). Here's to the 15 trailblazers who do the red carpet the way it should be done.
