We wondered if Serbia’s Moje 3 candy-coloured outfits brought them down. We sneered at Robin Stjernberg’s questionable fashion sense. We pointed and laughed at Cezar’s black dress. We didn’t like the skin-tone skimpy number worn by Cascada’s Natalie Horler. We even wondered whether Anouk’s outfit was right for the show. It’s time for YOU to decide who had the most unfortunate dress sense at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest!
Every year, the Barbara Dex Award is bestowed upon the artist with the most unfortunate outfit. Past winners include, apart from last year’s Rona Nishliu from Albania (seen at the top of this article), a string of notable names, such as Ukraine’s Verka Serduchka in 2007, Romania’s Sanda Ladosi in 2004, and Russia’s t.A.T.u. in 2003.
The award is named after Barbara Dex, who represented Belgium in the 1993 contest wearing this hideous see-through number:
In order to vote for this year’s worst dressed contestant, all you have to do is go to the Barbara Dex Award website and choose your “favourite” from among the 39 contestants. You can only vote once, for one contestant. The ballot will close on Saturday the 25th of May, at 23:59 CET. You have plenty of time to vote and come back and report to us. We will of course update you when the results of the voting are announced.
