Best Dressed of 2012

So who was the best dressed this year? We picked our faves …but did your favourite make the list? 

Kate Middleton

Royal fashionista Kate Middleton was at it again, this time sporting a timeless and sophisticated Roland Mouret dress. The Duchess remains loyal to European designers, and with this dress it was the clean lines (and that split!) that made it conservative yet sexy. 

Gwyneth Paltrow 

With legs that go for days, Gwyneth rocks the short sharp and sexy look of this little Prada cutaway satin dress. She balances the sleek precision and form-fitting cut with her selection of accessories and pulled back hair.

Jennifer Lopez

With a clear sign that she knows what works for her, Jennifer Lopez flaunts her curves in this sexy figure hugging Zuhair Murad gown, a designer she seems to favour. The strong shoulders, plunging neckline, fishtail skirt, and glitzy fabric all scream 80’s glamour, in a good way!

Kate Moss

After dark, our much loved supermodel Kate Moss commands our attention in this sculpted Stella McCartney dress. The curved lines of the black panel on the front seem to echo and follow her amazing bone structure and shape, whilst showing off her mile high legs. Sigh.

Kate Bosworth

Is there anything Kate Bosworth can’t wear? Kate shows why she’s a fashion favourite as she dons this bedazzled Prabal Gurung little black dress. She lets the glamour of the frock to do all the work.

Emma Stone

Emma strikes a pose as she shows off her Hollywood look; screen-siren hair and red lips, coupled with this stunning Gucci gown. She keeps her accessories minimal and sophisticated alongside the glamorous detail of this slinky number.

Victoria Beckham

The highly acclaimed designer steps out in one of her own gowns that displays elegant modern minimalism. The  fitted silhouette and the double belt prove less really can be more.

Zoe Saldana

Looking stunning Zoe in this amazing Givenchy Haute Couture creation. To match the soft and pretty piece, Zoe keeps her hair gently tied back in a sophisticated up-do. Simply gorgeous.

Nicole Richie

Shining from head to toe, Nicole Richie struts her stuff in this Lorena Sarbu gown, complimenting it with a smoky eye and tailored finger waves hairdo. This shows why we loooove Nic ole and her style so much.

Gwyneth Paltrow 

Gwyneth (yes again) solidifies her reign as queen of the red carpet bringing something few have brought before – a cape! This defining moment in fashion history made us stop and stare. This sophisticated Tom Ford gown is made for Gwyneth – she symbolises everything a Hollywood star should be. 

Kate Hudson

Kate gives a soft and feminine twist to this bold Atelier Versace gown. The allure of the ornate detailing in this dress takes centre stage due to the sophisticated shape and cut. Minimal accessories and her  up cement the look as a 2012 standout.

Emma Stone

Emma exudes her feminine beauty in this Chanel Resort dress. Leaving no doubt that she deserves her place on the best dressed list, this was just one dress that confirmed Emma is the newest fashion force to hit our radar.


Diane Kruger

Looking nothing less than an elegant princess, Diane Kruger romanced us at the Cannes Film Festival in this mint Giambattista Valli chiffon gown. The aqua  silk draped one-shoulder gown was perfect for her colouring and complemented her natural beauty. So easy to see why there a constant comparison to Grace Kelly.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is a golden gal on the red carpet at the 2012 American Music Awards. The 22-year-old singer/actress wore a Zuhair Murad long sleeve, floral embroidered dress featuring gold beadwork detail and an open back. Sexy yet age appropriate. More starlets should take notice.

Jessica Alba

Yummy mummy Jessica Alba does what she does best – serious, smouldering  glam. The  white silk crepe dress and shoes by Narciso Rodriguez  are seemingly simple yet so sexy.
