Video: Dresses Of Revenge: 7 Stars Who Effectively Took Revenge With Their Former Outfits

We owe the appearance of the term "revenge dress" to Princess Diana - this is how the tabloids dubbed the little black dress Christina Stambolian, in which she appeared in public on the same day when Prince Charles spoke in an interview about his infidelities. Since then, almost every star girl has appeared in a similar outfit: it is a matter of honor to take revenge on her ex. We are talking about 7 celebrities who responded to the betrayal or the departure of their beloved not with hysteria or scandalous interviews, but with an impeccable appearance - and showed whom he had lost.
In 2007, Reese Witherspoon divorced Ryan Philip. Her first public appearance as a free woman happened at the Golden Globe ceremony. There she put on a bright yellow bodycon dress-bustier Nina Ricci - and looked just brilliant. The release of the actress got into all the ratings of the best outfits of that ceremony (and of the whole year), and then journalists nicknamed this dress "Who is Ryan?"
Rihanna's romance with rapper Drake was short and chaotic - but made a lot of noise and generated a lot of discussion. What happened between the two musicians is not fully known. But there are still rumors that Drake was unfaithful - and paid for it in parting. Rihanna decided to show whom he had lost as effectively (and frankly) as possible - and chose the sensational “naked” Adam Selman dress made of mesh embroidered with crystals to go to the CFDA ceremony in 2014. The degree of frankness was extreme: the naked body of the singer was separated from the audience only by a transparent curtain of shining Swarovski crystals - and a small fur boa. In one way, the singer not only took revenge on her unfaithful lover, but also set the standard for “naked” dresses, which so far no one has surpassed.
In 2001, Nicole Kidman broke up with Tom Cruise after 11 years of marriage. And, apparently, she was very happy about that (after all, everyone remembers the famous photos of the happy actress near the courthouse?). Be that as it may, the star had no choice but to accept what was happening with dignity - and continue to shine. She came to the first film premiere unaccompanied by her husband in a little black dress - almost like Princess Diana. And the whole world saw who Tom Cruise had lost.
Another divorce - and another little black dress. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin parted quietly and without scandals - no interviews about betrayal and scandalous details in the tabloids. And yet, any stellar parting is already an event, and therefore the first exit of the actress after the break was eagerly awaited. And she did not disappoint: for one of the events in New York, she chose a rather revealing Monique Lhuillier dress - and made the audience hold their breath in admiration.

Bella Hadid also had her own "dress of revenge" in her life. After parting (another) with Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, she came to the masquerade ball after the couture show of Christian Dior in a completely transparent dress from the French House with graceful embroidery. The outfit looked a little less revealing than the famous "naked" dress of Rihanna - but also practically did not hide anything. Needless to say that all eyes that evening were riveted only on our heroine?
Jennifer Aniston seems to be able to write a book, make a film and do a series of trainings on how to survive cheating and divorce - and not fall into the mud at the same time. Her first exit after the sensational divorce from Brad Pitt was awaited with special impatience. The actress surpassed all expectations: at the premiere of her film with the symbolic title "The Price of Treason", she appeared in a sparkling Chanel dress in champagne shade, which from all sides emphasized her flawless figure. Keep it up!
After breaking up with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner went not to cry in a pillow, but to the Oscar red carpet. There she appeared in a stunning black asymmetric Atelier Versace dress, which many compared that evening to Lady Dee's “revenge dress”. The effect was about the same - the actress made it to all the lists of the best outfits.
