Since 1997, the Barbara Dex Award has paid homage to the fashion disasters that help make Eurovision so memorable. The winners regularly choose outfits so unflattering and unattractive that they make viewers shout “WTF?” From their barely-there dresses that could be described as lingerie to the misuse of tin foil and leotards, these “winners” look truly heinous.
This year offered plenty of thrills. Germany’s Jamie-Lee looked like she’d fallen out of a Halloween flick. Switzerland’s Rykka showed up with smoke emanating from her bra. And Finland’s Sandhja wore a jumpsuit that showed us her camel toe. But who of this year’s acts had you calling the fashion police the quickest?
As Europe debates the winner of the Barbara Dex Award 2016, we decided to run our own poll to preview the potential winner. According to the House of Eurovision, 2016 will be the final instalment of the award that honours Belgium’s 1993 contestant, who famously made the mistake of sewing her own costume and ended up looking like a lampshade. So let’s get behind them and take this out with a bang!
You can vote for as many acts as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time — so make it count! Then sound off in our comments box below.
