Whether it's on the red carpet or a fashion runway, there are always designers and celebrities whose ideas make for unique fashion statements that are nothing short of extraordinary.

From an LED light dress to a haute couture creation completely made out of soap, here are a few head-turning moments that took the world of fashion by storm:

1. The LED Dress

American singer Katy Perry turned heads when she arrived at the red carpet of the 2010 Costume Institute (MET) Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.


She arrived wearing a pink and white creation designed by wearable-tech company CuteCircuit complete with rainbow-colored LEDs.

2. The Soap Dress

In collaboration with "Lux" and inspired by the brand's fragrances, Lebanese designer Abed Mahfouz designed the world's first soap dress.  

The creation showcased last month at Fashion Forward Dubai and is a breathtaking, unique fashion statement in its own right.

3. The Meat Dress

When Lady Gaga arrived at the 2010 MTV awards she certainly made jaws drop.

Her outfit was completely made out of raw meat, heels included. 

4. The Lego Dress

Fergie stole the show at the 2011 Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards with a Lego dress designed by Los Angeles designer Michael Schmidt.  

5. The American Express Card Dress

When Australian costume designer Lizzy Gardiner won an Oscar at the 67th Academy Awards in 1995 for her work in the film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, her win wasn't the only reason she made the news.

The other reason? She was wearing a dress made of 254 American Express Gold cards.

6. The Cape Dress

Nicki Minaj's red Versace Cape dress at the 2012 Grammy awards caught everyone by surprise.  

She also caused quite a stir after arriving at the event with a date dressed up in a papal costume. 

Talk about unique fashion statements.

Singer Z Lala arrived at the 2016 Billboard music awards dressed in a crinoline-inspired dress that got everyone talking.

8. The Christmas Tree Dress

Lebanese singer Lady Madonna makes a fashion statement with every single one of her appearances.  

Things weren't so different in a 2014 television appearance when she wore a dress/Christmas tree, complete with ornaments and decorative lights.
