Adriana Lima is a Victoria’s Secret Angel, which means she’s best known for strutting her stuff on the runway in a bra and panties or starring in a photo shoot while wearing skimpy bikinis. If she looks good doing this, Lima is likely to look good doing just about anything. She recently proved that she even looks amazing when she puts her dress on backwards!
Lima attended the II BrazilFoundation Gala Miami 2013 at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami, Florida earlier this week. She walked the red carpet in a white gown from Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2012 collection, but it didn’t look quite the same as it did during the runway show. The 31-year-old model wore the gown backwards.
The sleeveless gown has geometric cutouts down each side and on a band around the waist. When worn correctly, the dress has a high neckline and a cowl back.
The gown wasn’t like any other white dresses, so maybe Adriana was confused about how to wear it, or maybe the model wanted to create a cowl front to show off more of her famous cleavage. Either way, Lima still looked gorgeous.
Adriana isn’t the first star to make us wonder whether they realized they were wearing something backwards or not. Sigourney Weaver wore her black Lanvin gown backwards at the 2013 SAG Awards earlier this year. The actress cleared up rumors about the mix-up by stating that she knew it was backwards. “As if you don’t get dressed with 40 people taking care of your hair and makeup,” she exclaimed.
Angelina Jolie purposely wore her blue Max Azria gown to the 2009 SAG Awards backwards in order to make it “more blouson,” according to her stylist. Amanda Seyfried also once walked the red carpet at a movie premiere with her dress on backwards. Because of where the zipper stops, her flub was much more noticeable than the others. Plus, Seyfried offered no explanation for the backwards dress, which makes this seems more like a mistake than an intentional alteration!
What do you think of these stars’ choices to change their dresses? Should gowns be worn how the designer intended, or should celebrities switch it up if they think it looks better backwards?
