Fans across the globe believed that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, the queen and king of 90s pop royalty, were meant to be together forever. Alas, the two broke up in 2002 after a highly publicized three-year relationship. The ensuing breakup was very public and very emotional for both of them. When Britney attended the London premiere of her movie “Crossroads,” she knew that she had to look her best. And look her best she did.
She rocked a metallic silver halter dress that made her the shining star of the red carpet. The asymmetrical hemline showed off her toned legs, and the silver color perfectly complimented her famous blonde hair. Britney strutted her stuff at the premiere of her film, looking happy, healthy, and totally unbothered by her recent breakup.
Feeling Blue? Nope!
Selena Gomez has had quite a few memorable revenge looks over the years, but this has to be her most iconic dress to date. Selena and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber, were on the rocks in 2016. When Selena hit the Grammy Awards red carpet after yet another breakup, she didn’t come to play. She served one of her hottest red carpet looks EVER in this cool-as-ice Calvin Klein gown.
This shimmering sequin dress fit Selena like a glove. The sexy cut-outs, the midnight blue color, and the plunging neckline all worked together to create an absolutely perfect revenge look. Selena attended solo but posed with her bestie Taylor Swift during a photo-op. Why stay home crying about an old relationship when you can go out and steal the show at the Grammys?
Mel B Bares it All
Former Spice Girl Mel B officially divorced her husband, Stephen Belafonte, in 2017 after ten years of marriage. The separation was an ugly one, with tons of petty Instagram posts, gossip, and tabloid speculation galore. Mel B, who was a judge on “America’s Got Talent” at the time, decided to cause a stir of her own during the show’s season 12 premiere. She attended the event in this daring catsuit that left little to the imagination.
The sheer black bodysuit was cleverly encrusted with blue and white crystals. We truly can’t get over the rainbow-shaped crystal explosion on the bottom half of this outfit. While many considered Mel B’s look to be a “miss” in the fashion department, we can all admit that it did its job as far as revenge looks go.
An Absolute Cougar
Diane Kruger and her long-time partner Joshua Jackson called it quits in 2016. The couple had been together for a whopping ten years and were considered one of the few “successful” relationships in Hollywood. Sadly, their relationship just wasn’t meant to be. After publicly announcing their breakup, Diane did what many of us do when newly single: she tried her darndest to look as hot as possible. Obviously, it worked.
Diane is an absolutely gorgeous person, so it’s no surprise that all of her revenge looks from the time are stunning. She wore this shimmery silver minidress to the Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Ironically, her neck was the most covered part of her body. That dress leaves little to the imagination. If we looked like Diane Kruger, we’d definitely be rocking this look, too.
A Disick Diss
Before Travis Barker, there was Scott Disick. If you know anything about the Kardashians, you know that Kourtney’s years-long relationship with the father of her three children had its ups and downs. After documenting their entire relationship on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kourtney and Scott split up for good in 2015. That summer, Kourtney didn’t hold back in showing Scott what he was missing.
Kourtney had so many amazing revenge looks that tabloids started saying Kourtney was rocking her “revenge body” instead of simple one-off looks. We’d have to agree. No matter what Kourtney wore in 2015, she looked amazing. She wore this bright pink halter jumpsuit to the MTV VMAs and totally slayed. She looked elegant, chic, and effortlessly sexy. Bye, Scott.
