Verka Serduchka, you are not Lady Gaga. Looking back at some of ESC’s fashion anti-icons

Over the years, plenty of singers chose to showcase their talent and their (lack of) taste in fashion on the ESC stage, often their outfits outshining their singing skills...

Russian Babuskas flaunt the folk

Polish duo Donatan & Cleo do their (sexy) laundry

Ukraine’s Ruslana x Xena the Warrior Princess

Life’s a... peach? What was Armenia’s Eva Riva thinking with this apricot-inspired costume?

There can only be one Lady Gaga. Dear Verka Serduchka, you aren’t her

We are all about the glitter on Eric Papilaya’s jacket... not sure about the red adult Elmos (?) though...

Looks like Svetlana Loboda’s budget went all into her outfit (it’s those boots) while her dancers had to go on stage half-naked. We didn’t complain though

Rebeka Dremelj goes fifty shades of cray-cray with this silver, chains and whips piece

Ireland’s Jedward tin-men took us right back to Wizard of Oz

Here they go again, this time with the faux-hawks. Looks like Jedward started the pineapple haircut craze that was originally wrongly attributed to Justin Bieber!

It’s a bird! It’s a turkey... It’s a toucan? Well whatever it is, it made for a memorable fashion prop for Ireland’s performance in 2008

Wow! That’s pretty. Also kind of weird. But hey, it’s ESC

Hmm... not sure we are feeling Rodolfo Chikilicuatre’s sideburns all that much

Albania’s Kesja Tola looked dreamy. Her blue-man-disco-ball-head dance partner was however more something out of a nightmare

But even though we fans have been subjected to a wide variety of fashion mishaps, there were stars who were simply f-l-a-w-l-e-s-s <3
