It's no secret this year was not an ordinary year when it came to award shows — or anything, really. But with things slowly returning to normal, we were lucky enough to enjoy a handful of red carpets. And boy did celebs lean into them with their stand-out fashion choices that screamed: "Finally, it's time to shine!"

Here, we gathered the most daring dresses worn this year. What do we mean by daring? It could be a loud color, a scandalous slit, an unusual silhouette, a sheer fabric, or a wild print. Basically, it's the dresses that left us speechless yet had everyone talking.

Zendaya was the queen of the Oscars in a chartreuse Valentino gown with a striking cutout in the bodice. Lizzo ruled the Grammys in not one, but two shimmering Balmain dresses that reminded us of the '80s in the best way possible. And Maren Morris made appearances at both the ACM Awards and the Grammy Awards wearing gowns that made her look like an absolute goddess. Then came the Met Gala with stars like Megan Fox, Kendall Jenner, and Zoe Kravitz stealing the show with their flashy barely-there designs that showed off their incredible figures.

But don't take our word for it, from award shows to premieres, keep scrolling to catch a glimpse of 2021's most unforgettable red carpet style moments.
