Every year, the Eurovision Song Contest serves up a smörgåsbord of fabulous fashion. We all know about the infamous Barbara Dex Award, which is given to the worst dressed artist annually. But we wanted to know who you think nailed their Eurovision couture in 2015. Belgium’s Loïc Nottet danced and strutted in a structured black number. Spain’s Edurne rocked a red tearaway. And Georgia’s Nina Sublatti stunned us with feather and leather. But one lady rocked the runway like no other. After counting 4,462 votes, we are pleased to reveal that Russia’s Polina Gagarina has won the Vision Music Award 2015 for Best Dressed.
Too often we see over the top fashion on the Eurovision stage. Think costume rather than high fashion. Polina bucked the trend with a flowing white gown that was simple and exuded purity and beauty in every possible way. Her backing vocalists and band also jumped on the all-white bandwagon, and we could hear A Million Voices sing in rejoice as the Russian songstress nailed her song and her look. YES! Polina has subsequently put this dress to work, wearing it for performances at the closing ceremony of the World Aquatics Championships in Kazan, the closing ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2018 allocation draw, and at the Muz TV Awards. C’mon dry cleaning!
We add Polina Gagarina to the best dressed roster, where she joins Ukraine’s Mariya Yaremchuk from 2014 and Romania’s Cezar from 2013.
