The Oscars 2015 red carpet is where the big names in film pull out all the stops to look glamorous for the big night - but sometimes things go terribly wrong. Here were the weirdest dresses from the 87th Annual Academy Awards, from Lady Gaga's bright red dish gloves to Julianne Moore's cookies 'n cream dress.

Lady Gaga: The pop singer who performed a stunning tribute to Julie Andrews' "Sound Of Music" didn't look so stunning on the Oscars 2015 red carpet. While she did wear the most popular color of the night - white - the custom-made, cracked-texture Alaia gown was shimmery, had stiff, T-shaped sleeves, and red pleather gloves. Those gloves briefly took over Twitter, with many saying that Lady Gaga looked like she was ready to wash some dishes with those bad boys. And what's up with that red scrunchy?

Julianne Moore: Though the "Still Alice" snagged the Oscar Award for best actress, she certainly didn't win any awards for that dress. The one-of-a-kind Chanel dress was made by Karl Lagerfeld himself and featured 80,000 "small white hand-painted resin sequins and flowers made of ivory, beige and black organza, tulle and sequins," according to Chanel. It took 27 workers 987 hours to create the exquisite dress, and though many were a fan, the strange appliques reminded some of a certain kind of dessert treat.

Keira Knightley: The "Imitation Game" actress' Valentino dress was embroidered with flowers and hard-to-read phrases in French, giving her a bohemian, flower-child princess look. While the countless layers of tulle were likely strategically hiding Knightley's baby bump, the gown looked like something you'd pick up at a thrift store.

Marion Cotillard: Marion Cotillard may just be one of the most graceful ladies in Hollywood and while her Oscars 2015 dress was gorgeous from the front, the back reminded many of the onigiri rice ball emoji. The white Dior couture gown had a beautiful texture to the fabric, but that black band just below her butt that cinched a lot of material looked like a piece of seaweed. Felicity Jones: The "Theory of Everything" star has a very petite frame and this dress nearly swallowed her whole. The massive silver Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown featured a high neck with pearl embellishments in a dusky gray shade. But the huge satin train, thick halter neck, and flower appliques took away from Felicity's natural, elegant beauty.

Solange Knowles: The 28-year-old musician wore a billowing, scarlet red Christian Siriano creation with a satin finish. Part gown, part jumpsuit, this look just had way too much fabric and made Solange look double her real size.

Dana Perry: Perhaps our favorite look of the night, the 'Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1' Oscar winner and producer wore an elegant black dress - but what on earth was going on with that wrap? The netted addition to her outfit featured fuzzy black balls that reminded us of the sootballs in Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away."
