10 Times Celebrities Put a Secret Meaning Into the Clothes and Accessories They Wear


Celebrities spend weeks, if not months, preparing for major events. They plan their outfits down to the last detail, and their clothes and accessories frequently have significant value for them. Meanwhile, fans and fashion experts continue to speculate on what message their famous idols were attempting to express through various details.

Nicole Kidman donned a cascading Dior gown with embroidery picturing a woman with spread wings to the Glamour Women of the Year gala. The embroidery on the chest reminds us of a person’s boundless possibilities, which is why we chose this garment. “I’m wearing wings tonight, and I assure you, even if your wings are cut, you can rebuild them and soar,” the actress said in her address.

Scarlett Johansson attended the annual Met Gala in 2018 wearing a Marchesa gown. Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman, two women, run the fashion house. The actress wanted to support the brand of these female designers by wearing this outfit. Marchesa outfits, according to Johansson, make girls feel confident and beautiful like nothing else.

Hailey Baldwin is the queen of street style, so it’s no surprise that her wedding gown had some street style features. Virgil Abloh, the creator of one of the most well-known “street style” labels, designed the costume instead of a French couturier. It was, by the way, the designer’s first time designing a wedding gown.

The veil was embellished with embroidery components that read “Till Death Do Us Part” and “Wedding Dress,” as well as crossed arrows, the Off-White brand.

Laura Dern attended the 2019 Golden Globe Awards in a stunning red Valentino gown. A little handbag completed her ensemble. If you look closely, you’ll see a black ribbon with the “Time’s Up” sign wrapped around the item. With the help of this small detail, the actress later admitted that she wished to support the same-name female movement.

Gwen Stefani dazzled her admirers with a short dress adorned with strange seashells at the 62nd Grammy Awards Ceremony. The problem is that Blake Shelton, the singer’s husband, has been collecting them for his beloved woman for years. As a result, Dolce & Gabbana came up with an interesting technique to incorporate the shell collection into their designs.

Mariah Carey wore this outfit to the MTV Video Music Awards in 1997, which consisted of a black crop top and a maxi skirt with bold rips up the sides. The singer had broken up with her long-term boyfriend, Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola, a few weeks before the event. He was in complete charge of the celebrity’s public image. The daring ensemble symbolised the newfound freedom and rejection of the traditional image.

Representatives of the British royal family are revealed to the public with their babies just a few hours after giving birth, according to custom. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, not only risked breaching this unspoken norm by appearing in front of the press only two days after the baby was delivered, but she also wore a rather daring costume to do so.

The Duchess used a belt to draw attention to her large tummy, indicating that she was not afraid of her postpartum changes. If you look at images of other royals, you’ll find that they left hospitals wearing voluminous gowns that hide their stomachs.

Marilyn Monroe

The connection between Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, is shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Though their relationship was never officially verified, the actress and the president’s public appearances at Kennedy’s 45th birthday party, as well as Monroe’s renowned performance at the event, added fuel to the flames.

The actress wore a translucent garment adorned with hundreds of rhinestones to perform the seductive composition “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.” The dress, like Marilyn’s attitude toward the president, was so overt that it became a true challenge and a type of confession.

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles first announced their romance in 1994. Princess Diana swiftly exacted vengeance for the infidelity by appearing in an outfit that defied royal protocol: a black gown with open shoulders. The daring ensemble became known as “the revenge dress” and inspired many other renowned women.

Rihanna attended the Diamond Ball in 2017 wearing a dazzling black Ralph & Russo ensemble that mimicked Lady Di’s iconic image. This was the singer’s way of paying tribute to the princess.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish made an unexpected appearance at the Met Gala in 2021. Baggy clothes were replaced with diamonds and a feminine outfit in the best Hollywood traditions, leaving no trace of an insecure adolescent. The young singer’s new image turned out to be a watershed moment not only for her career but also for the Oscar de la Renta brand. In order to work with Eilish, the company had to fully avoid using natural fur.
