Star fashionistas once and for all put a fat end to their unsuccessful relationships and proved to themselves and the whole world that no parting will break them.
Amber Heard, Reese Witherspoon, Rihanna, Princess Diana
Parting is always difficult and painful. After this, I want to lie low for a while, hide with my head under the blanket and not see the white light for several days. But not everyone can afford such an unplanned vacation. Many celebrities, part of whose job is public events and performances, had to swallow resentment and show up in public immediately after the news about their scandalous breakups and divorces. And the main weapon of these strong-minded women was clothing, namely the “revenge dress— – the spectacular image of celebrities in which they first appeared in public after the news of the breakup with their loved ones. We tell about the brightest and most popular in our material.
Princess Diana, 1994
This is, of course, one of the most iconic images of the princess, forever included in the history of fashion and the royal family. Then, in 1994, Charles confessed to his wife that he was not faithful to her. True, the couple has not lived together for two years, but to hear such a confession is unpleasant for any girl.
Interestingly, the princess originally planned to appear at the Vanity Fair gala in a Valentino dress, but information about it leaked to the press, and Her Highness preferred the Christina Stambolian model, which had been waiting for its finest hour in the princess’ wardrobe for three years.
Of course, all eyes and cameras were glued to her. And Spencer understood that such an audacious image of a monarch would be widely discussed and even condemned. But you must agree that it was the most spectacular and truly royal way to put all your detractors in their place and show the cheating husband who he lost.
Reese Witherspoon, 2007
Lady Di’s example will later be followed by many stars who will use their unlimited budget and luxurious figure to arouse the envy of the former and secretly get even with the offenders.
For example, Reese Witherspoon’s appearance at the 2007 Golden Globes was also actively discussed, including because the actress had just divorced Ryan Phillippe, and this was her first public appearance in a new status. The star chose a spectacular gold strapless dress with bright sandals in a contrasting shade.
Nicole Kidman, 2001
A little black dress is a classic for all time. It was this length and color that many women resorted to, who dreamed of taking revenge on their exes. Nicole Kidman did not stay away either. In 2001, the actress broke up with Tom Cruise after 11 years of marriage. But like a true professional, the star gathered all her will into a fist, put on a seductive black strapless dress and came to the premiere of the film “Others” in Los Angeles. If people didn’t know what the celebrity was going through, no one would have guessed that Nicole had any problems with her personal life.
Jennifer Lopez, 2003
If there is such a star in Hollywood, the appearance in front of the cameras of which always knocks down, then it’s definitely Jennifer Lopez. And even when a star is going through hard times, she still looks amazing.
In 2003, Ben Affleck and Jay Lo canceled their upcoming wedding almost a few days before it. Then Ben could not stand the pressure from the public, but rehabilitated almost 20 years later — now the couple is back together, but Jennifer’s iconic dress remains in history, in which she came to the premiere of the film “The Hour of Reckoning” after parting with her beloved.
Jennifer Aniston, 2005
The story of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s breakup will be discussed for a long time, but then, in 2007, the official separation of one of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood had just become known. Jennifer could not afford to slack off and for the first time after the news appeared in public in a spectacular gold Chanel dress, with sandals and a bag to match the main outfit. And, it’s worth noting, she looked amazing then.
We are not used to Rihanna’s “naked” images. Right now the star doesn’t need an excuse to put on a provocative outfit, but in 2014 her grand appearance on the red carpet of the CFDA in a translucent shiny Adam Selman dress was due to the breakup of her short-term romance with Drake. Yes, the couple did not meet for so long, but even then the singer wanted to take revenge on the rap artist for treason.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 2014
The actress chose a spectacular black Monique Lhuillier set for her first public appearance after breaking up with Chris Martin. The actress lived with the singer for 10 years and decided to put a bold end to their relationship beautifully .
Jennifer Garner, 2016
Another black image in the list of “revenge dresses”, the culprit of which was Ben Affleck. In 2016, the actor broke up with Jennifer Garner. The former lovers had their first meeting after parting at the Academy Awards. And it seems that the inspiration for Jennifer’s outfit was just the same outfit of Princess Diana. Only Garner had it turned out to be a floor-length evening dress, but the hint and references to the original source were clear to everyone
Amber Heard, 2016
Scandals in the family of Amebr Hurd and Johnny Depp have stirred up the whole world. Only last year, the actor won a court case against his ex-wife, whose divorce became known in 2017. Then the Network got information about the festive party of Emebr in honor of her 30th birthday, where a fight happened between her and Depp. A week after that, an important event in the fashion world took place, the Met Gala, which Heard, of course, could not miss. Then the actress dressed in a satin Ralph Lauren floor-length dress. Shortly after the ball, Amber Heard filed for divorce.
Bella Hadid, 2017
The American model had several spectacular meetings with a former lover after their breakup. For example, on the catwalk of the Victoria’s Secret show in 2016, where The Weeknd performed, and Bella went to the podium in her underwear.
After that, the couple managed to get together and split up again a year later. Another iconic appearance of Hadid after the breakup was at the Christian Dior ball in a luxurious semi-transparent dress. Then Abel was not around, but we are sure that he saw the photo report from the event.
