Bjork lays an egg on the red carpet | 2001

Icelandic musician Bjork's 73rd Academy Awards dress is not only one of the most iconic red carpet outfits ever (the ruffled number even has its own Wikipedia page), but also among the most awkward. Folks who thought she dropped her clutch while walking toward the ceremony venue were surprised to see she dropped a sizable egg, on purpose, out of her swan dress. We'll let you argue about how good she looked in the ensemble, but we will say this: Bjork's Oscar cameo sure reminded us of Hans Christian Andersen's tale of a duckling that didn't quite fit in.
