Brave and regrettable are the only words that can describe early aughts fashion. Brave because people stepped out in bikini tops, velour sweatsuits, and jersey dresses, yet regrettable for those same reasons. But that isn't stopping fashion from embracing those early 2000s nostalgic trends once again. Right now, slip dresses, chokers, and dresses over jeans are having a moment, though we're still hoping to leave camouflage and asymmetrical anything behind.

We found photos of some of the most outrageous looks celebrities wore on the red carpet in 2000, from Mary J. Blige's bright pink fur to Sisqo's head-to-toe Coogi outfit. Let this serve as both a warning of how bad things can get and some outfit inspiration for any New Year's Eve parties coming up.
