Model and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo is drop-dead gorgeous. It seems wild that any guy would break up with her, but alas, even she isn’t immune to heartbreak. Her relationship with singer Nick Jonas ended in 2015, and Olivia served not one but two revenge looks. Olivia’s first dose of revenge was at a “50th Birthday Celebration” for Cosmopolitan Magazine.
She wore a seductively sleek pinstripe suit sans a shirt underneath. She kept the Hollywood glam vibes going with a luxurious red gown only a few weeks later when she attended InStyle’s award ceremony. Both “revenge looks” proved that Olivia keeps it classy when it comes to breakups. Nick was no doubt feeling “Jealous” with these red hot red carpet looks.
Rock Steady Revenge
Gwen Stefani went through a painful divorce from her now ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, the year before this playful red carpet look. After two decades and three kids together, Gwen and Gavin got divorced amidst rumors that Gavin cheated on her with their nanny. Yikes. Thankfully, Gwen didn’t let that devastating news get her down.
She attended the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards with one of her kids and her new beau, Blake Shelton, at her side. She wore a colorful mini dress that captured her signature off-beat style, as well as her famous “victory roll” hairstyle. Everyone loves a good comeback story, and there’s nothing better than a celeb showing off a revenge look alongside a new relationship.
Demi’s NYC Revenge Look
Demi Lovato hit the New York City talk show circuit after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama in 2016. The two had dated on and off for six years, but by the time she went out in this dress, it looked like they were done for good. Demi wore this cute mini dress for her interview with “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which she attended alongside Nick Jonas.
Demi looks well-rested and happy in this short but sweet dress. The long-sleeved dress looks professional but flirty, striking the perfect chord for a late-night TV show interview. Demi put herself out there, reminding us all that a little breakup wasn’t going to keep her down.
A Fashion Week Slay
Ciara had to attend Paris Fashion Week alone in 2014. She had broken off her engagement to musician Future amid cheating rumors just months after giving birth to their son, Future Jr. Ciara was no doubt feeling tons of conflicting emotions, but she didn’t let anyone see her shed a tear over Future during Paris Fashion Week. Instead, she made headlines for her amazing revenge looks.
One of her most memorable looks from that week was this red lace Valentino dress that she wore to the designer’s runway show. The dress is entirely see-through, but Ciara toned it down with a calf-length coat worn over her shoulders. Despite her tumultuous year, Ciara managed to look happy, radiant, and refreshed. We would be, too, if we got to attend all those fancy fashion shows in Paris!
Katy Perry's Feeling Blue
Katy Perry kept a pretty low profile after news of her divorce from Russell Brand became public. As we later learned, Russell informed Katy that he was going to file for divorce via a cold and formal text message. Ouch. Ever the stellar performer, Katy put on a brave face and attended the 54th Annual Grammy Awards a few months after the news broke.
Katy was bruised but not broken in this simple but chic revenge look. She wore a light blue floor-length gown that brought attention to her aquamarine-dyed hair. This look is more toned-down than other infamous revenge looks, which maybe gives us a clue that Katy was, in fact, feeling blue about the breakup.
