Demi Moore’s Best Red Carpet Moments Prove Good Style Survives the Decades

Ever since her breakthrough role in the 1985 cult classic St. Elmo’s Fire, Demi Moore has remained in the spotlight. Her run of successful roles in the ’90s in films like Ghost, A Few Good Men, and Indecent Proposal sky-rocketed her to A-list status, and made her the highest paid actress by the middle of the decade. Of course, Moore isn’t just known for her acting prowess, but her high-profile relationships as well, specifically with Bruce Willis, and then Ashton Kutcher.

But even when the actress was walking the red carpet with her arm candy, eyes were always on her look of the evening. Ever since the ’80s, Moore has been turning out interesting and unexpected ensembles, starting from when she DIY’d her own dress for the 1989 Oscars. Since then, though, she has left the designing to the pros, finding her style in the form of mini dresses, menswear-inspired ensembles, and column silhouettes. And it seems that in recent years, the actress has been experimenting more than ever, opting for brighter colors and unexpected textures when she hits the red carpet. A constant in the fashion week front row for decades, it has always been clear that Moore has quite the eye for style. Below, look back at the actress’ best red carpet moments over the past forty years.
