Talk show co-host, Hollywood legend, and fashionista Whoopi Goldberg has a charming personality and is proud of what she represents, despite the naysayers. She is a no-nonsense woman who calls out wrongdoings on the "The View" talk show and is not scared of having a different opinion.

Recently, she showed her fearlessness while attending the 2021 Met Gala. The confident actress opted for a customized piece from Valentino created by Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The head-turning outfit was a magnanimous purple dress fashioned in layers that wrapped an inner green fabric. She added a set of alien-like gloves to the look, while the length of the outfit made it impossible for fans to view her shoes.

However, many could see that Goldberg opted for a natural facial look with only her transparent orbit framed glasses settling in front of her face as her heavy black locks cascaded down over her shoulders.

When asked about the appearance, the actress revealed that it was a bit challenging managing such an outfit but complimented the fifty people who helped out.

Goldberg, who revealed she would not be able to get into a taxi with the dress, also hinted that despite the hands involved in her getting ready process, it was not all that easy, and she found it hilarious.

WHAT GOLDBERG FANS THOUGHT

After FashionBombDaily shared the look, many fans thought that it did not make the pass mark. One person wrote:

"Wow the worst look."

WHOOPI GOLDBERG ON FASHION

Although many may not have agreed with her choice for the grand event, lovers of the actress know that she is an incredible fashion person who also has a brand known as DUBGEE, for women of every size, on any day. While speaking about the brand, she told an outlet:

"The philosophy behind this line is you should never have to worry about what's in your closet. Some days you're wider, sometimes you have water weight...You want to not have to worry about that."

Goldberg has never been one to worry about the critics either. Instead, she opts for comfortable looks, whether it is trendy or not.

In 2018, the talk show co-host appeared in a stunning off-shoulder floral-themed Christain Siriano gown and supported the look with dark sunglasses and hiking shoes, caring less about the naysayers, which made her top headlines, as usual.
