Over the years, the Oscars red carpet has seen its fair share of unforgettable looks. And while some of the dresses have gone down in fashion history, others were remembered for all the wrong reasons. In fact, we're pretty sure a number of these throwback ensembles received more attention than the films and stars that were honored on Hollywood's big night. 

One outfit, in particular, is so iconic you only need to say two words when referring to it: swan dress. Yes, we're talking about Bjork's infamous look she wore to the 2001 ceremony. From intricate beading to voluptuous trains and embroidered details, there's no doubt a lot of time and effort went into crafting these designs, they just happened to unfortunately miss the mark IRL. 

You might also be shocked to see A-listers like Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson in this roundup, especially since they've graced the best-dressed list at the Academy Awards more than a few times. Everyone makes mistakes, right? 

Other celebrities that have lived and learned? Gwyneth Paltrow has admitted that she "should have worn a bra" under her 2002 Alexander McQueen frock, while Uma Thurman told InStyle that her 2004 Christian Lacroix creation was one of her “most embarrassing experiences" on the red carpet. 

Ahead, see the throwback Oscar dresses we can't believe stars wore.
