Sigourney Weaver landed on plenty of Worst Dressed Lists at this year’s SAG Awards, ours included. Between the black satin fabric, high neckline, and armpit ruffles, the Lanvin dress was a flop. But the sharp eyes over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards noticed that Weaver actually wore the dress backwards. Backwards! But does that change our mind about Weaver being one of the worst dressed stars that night? Eh, not really.
The front of the dress (when worn correctly, we mean) features a deep cross-over v-neck, with a faux waist-belt detail and an asymmetrical hem, and the back is a plain high neckline with no detailing. On the red carpet, it appears that Weaver wore the top part of the dress backwards, but kept the bottom half as is — perhaps she got Alber Elbaz to customize it?
At least Weaver is in good company – Amanda Seyfried and Angelina Jolie have done the same at previous fancy events. Seyfried wore a futuristic mini by Bodyamr backwards in 2010 to showcase the dress’ exposed gold zipper, and Jolie did the same to a blue Max Azria gown at the SAGs in 2009.

Update: Thanks to readers Joy Yoon and Chel for giving us the heads up on this red dress, which seems more in line with what Weaver wore to the SAGs, and not the v-neck gown that we previously referenced. The dress is available at Net-a-Porter and FarFetch, which we actually linked to in our original article and overlooked.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
