Celebrities spark hilarious memes with their unusual outfit choices

And the Oscar for best meme goes to… Social media users poke fun at the worst-dressed stars, comparing Janelle Monae’s Ralph Lauren dress to The Tin Man and Elton John to the JOKER

  • The red carpet at the 92nd Academy Awards was awash with A-list stars in designer gowns on Sunday night 
  • Not everyone hit the right sartorial note, sparking hilarious memes and comparisons across social media 
  • Singer Janelle Monae’s hooded silver Ralph Lauren gown was quickly compared to The Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man 

The red carpet at the 92nd Academy Awards was awash with A-list stars in designer gowns on Sunday night – but unfortunately not everyone hit the right sartorial note, sparking hilarious memes across social media.

Arriving at the Oscars, singer Janelle Monae, 34, who opted for a hooded silver Ralph Lauren gown embelished with Swarovski crystals, was quickly compared to The Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man.

Meanwhile actress Kristen Wiig, 46, did not impress some onlookers with her red double ruffle frock, which drew comparisons to a lobster and a meat lasagna. 

And British star Elton John, 72, was also not immune to some lighthearted teasing, with his silk purple blazer featuring a statement collar likened to that of The Joker.

Meanwhile, despite impressing viewers with her performance in BBC hit Killing Eve, American actress Sandra Oh, 48, divided opinion in her larger than life Elie Saab couture gown.

And British actress Cynthia Erivo, 33, certainly made a statement in an asymmetric white gown, which unfortunately was quickly compared to a toilet roll commerical. 

Elsewhere Natalie Portman, 38, committed a fashion faux pas in a Dior gown covered by a floor length blazer – winning her unfortunate comparisons to Count Dracula.

Remarkling on the comparisons, one social media user remarked: ‘You keep me laughing out loud!’, while another added: ‘Omg I’m dying!’.

 And despite some of the fashion fails, there were some surprise wins on Sunday night.

Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite shocked fans when it became the first ever foreign film to win Best Picture at the 92nd Annual Academy Awards (Oscars), held at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Sunday evening.

The critically-acclaimed South Korean movie – which earned four total throughout the show, including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature – beat out the likes of Sam Mendes’ 1917, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Renee Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix earned the Best Actress and Best Actor prizes respectively, as they – along with Best Supporting Actress and Actor winners Brad Pitt and Laura Dern – completed their award season sweep.
