Patricia Arquette looked like the prom queen of the ’90s in her early red carpet outfit


Patricia Arquette is known for her acting skills and has won an Oscar, multiple Emmys and multiple SAG Awards throughout her career. Arquette’s stint in Hollywood has made headlines over the years, so let’s take a look back at where it all began.

Arquette’s latest red carpet look

One of the actress’ recent red carpet appearances was for the 3rd Monte Carlo Gala for Global Ocean. Arquette has been dedicated to environmental work for years and even founded GiveLove, a non-profit organization that supports ecological sanitation and community development.

Arquette wore a stunning red dress to the gala, accessorised with a small black clutch bag and matching glasses. Her glamorous look was perfect for the European charity event.

Her whirlwind relationship with Nicolas Cage

While Arquette is known for her elegant looks on the red carpet and her work as an actress, her personal life once made headlines. In 1995 she married actor Nicolas Cage. The two met in the late ’80s and Cage told Arquette that he would marry her.

The actor asked Arquette to give him a list of things to find and give her to win her hand in marriage. She gave Cage a list of extremely hard-to-find items, including reclusive writer JD Salinger’s autograph and a black orchid (which doesn’t actually exist).

Cage’s commitment to giving her every item on the list impressed Arquette, and she agreed to go on a trip to Cuba with him. However, after being stranded in Mexico due to a ticket problem, the actor had a meltdown and Arquette went home without him.

A few years later, the two met again and realized that they still had feelings for each other. Cage and Arquette married just two weeks after their reunion. The couple eventually divorced in 2000, but the true timeline of their relationship is a little murky.

While some claim the couple split nine months after their wedding and have been filing and backing out of divorce papers for five years, Arquette claims the rumors are untrue. “There were times when we didn’t live together because we were fighting, but it wasn’t how it was reported and I didn’t feel like I had to explain it,” she said The Telegraph in 2015. “There were times when he was out working on a film. It was our thing. I still don’t feel like I owe it to anyone. It’s funny when people get so wrong and put you in this position and decide who you are.”

The Arquette siblings

Her tumultuous marriage to Cage wasn’t her only connection to another actor. Arquette has two famous siblings: actors David Arquette and Rosanna Arquette. Both have found fame on the big screen; David im Scream Franchise, Rosanna in movies like pulp fiction and Desperately looking for Susanne. They had another sibling, Alexis, who was also an actor. She died in 2016.

Today, photos of Arquette on the red carpet show her in elegant dresses and unusual jewelry. A picture of her at the 1993 premiere true romance reveals that she was just as glamorous in the early days of her career. Her slinky, high-necked dress and beautiful updo are classic Old Hollywood.

Arquette has had a long career, with many awards for her excellent work on screen. Looking at images from her early days in Hollywood, it’s easy to see why the world has long been captivated by her.
