About Barbara Dex Award
Barbara Dex Award was initially introduced in 1997 and was named after the Belgian entrant in 1993, Barbara Dex, whose dress had stirred negative reactions and had been considered as one of the worst stylistic choices of all times.
This year marks the 2nd Barbara Dex Award for a Portuguese entry, following the awarding of the female group Nonstop, which flew the country’s flag in Athens in 2006.
