Picking a red carpet look can't be easy—from the countless eyes that will see you to making sure you know exactly the statement you want to make. But, some of Hollywood's biggest heavyweights know how to push the boundaries, often using the red carpet as a means of making a political statement, while others use it to purposely deliver home a point.
But, of course, with those said statements comes its fair share of controversy. Below we've rounded up some of the most controversial (both purposeful and unintentional) outfits of all time. Scroll down to read the stories behind each look.
Lady Gaga at the MTV Video Awards, 2010
The Lady Gaga outfit that needs no introduction. The Rain On Me singer's meat ensemble sparked extreme controversy in the animal rights community when she wore it to the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010. "No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal," said PETA president Ingrid Newkirk. "Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that's the look they were going for, they achieved it." Gaga explained following the awards ceremony that the dress was a statement about one's need to fight for what one believes in, and highlighted her distaste for the US military's don't-ask-don't-tell policy.
