Voting for Eurovision 2015's Barbara Dex Award begins!

Voting for Eurovision 2015’s Barbara Dex Award begins!
Emma Kiernan

Every year, a Eurovision contestant is honoured with the Barbara Dex Award for the worst dressed of the year.

This year is no different, and the voting has now opened to find out who perhaps should have hired a different stylist.


Who is Barbara Dex?

Barbara Dex took to the Eurovision stage in Millstreet back in 1993. She finished in last place for Belgium with her song “Lemand als jij”, however, it’s not her song that stays in the memories of Eurovision fans, but her outfit.

Barbara’s homemade greenish-yellow dress earned her the honour of having the award for each year’s worst dressed contestant named after her.


The contestants of this year

Each of the participating Eurovision artists from 40 different countries are eligible for the award. If you need a reminder, check out our gallery from the dress rehearsals below.

Could it be Eduard who lost his shirt? The vest and jean combo from Finland? The British light-up outfits? The baggy piece that Trijntje chose over the extreme neckline?



Cast your vote now!
