Icelandic rock star Bjork is as famous for her unconventional outfits as she is for her eclectic musical style.

So her fans likely weren’t disappointed last weekend when she took to the stage at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival dressed in a shiny black dress that was covered with what appeared to be tubes intertwined.

The Sun newspaper described her costume as “a frock adorned with strange robotic-looking snakes.”

The dress was the creation of Iris van Herpen, an avant-garde Dutch designer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The “Hunter” singer’s multicolored, bouffant hairdo seemed to match the strangeness of her attire.

Bjork, 46, turned heads and made headlines in 2001 when she hit the red carpet at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles wearing a dress that was shaped like a swan. The head of the swan wrapped around her neck and rested on her chest. The bodice and skirt were designed to evoke the swan’s feathers.

The singer carried a matching egg purse, and she even pretended to lay an egg on the red carpet.

Bjork later auctioned the dress for charity.
