2012 saw fashion’s highest highs and lowest lows; there were a series of hits and a series of misses and while some celebrities amazed us, some committed the worst fashion faux pas.
So who were these fabulous celebrities who captivated us in 2012 with their fashion sense? Who gave us a series of memorable hits and who inspired us to find our inner divas and walk out into the world wearing the best of clothes? Let’s take a look and find out.
Counting down to the top 10 best dressed celebrities of 2012, enjoy!
10. Miranda Kerr
No we aren’t talking of the best dressed celebrities in lingerie. If you keep aside Miranda Kerr’s Victoria’s Secret angel status and stop thinking about her million dollar bra, you can see Miranda for what she is – a good dresser.
Models do have a natural penchant for fashion and Miranda is always well dressed whether she takes to the street, goes out shopping or graces the red carpet. Her dresses, casual wear and accessories are to die for. She is one celebrity who certainly knows how to work up a great look for any occasion.
9. Olivia Palermo
Olivia Palermo effortlessly exhibits grace in everything she wears. You could pick up any piece of clothing and give it to this pretty girl and be sure she will transform it to come up with a great and fashionable look. And the best part about Olivia’s look is that this lovely lady sure knows how to accessorize well and you will see her amazing fashion sense manifest through her shoes, bags, clutches and jewelry.
8. Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez’s high profile personal life being played in public can stretch a bit too far at times, but Selena sure does have a closet filled with awesome goodies. Not only does this girl have a great skill at singing and acting, but she also has a great fashion sense.
Selena knows well what is supposed to be worn where and that’s why she always manages to catch our eyes everywhere she goes (besides Justin Bieber of course).
7. Kristen Stewart
Kristen surely has given us some memorable fashion faux pas in the last few months with her obsession for sheer fabrics, but you can’t deny the fact that she knows how to dress well. Although it does seem like Kristen pulls off a great ensemble only when she is in the mood to do so, she does it nevertheless and manages to come up with something fabulous most of the time.
6. Reese Witherspoon
If we had to define Reese’s fashion sense in a few words it would be graceful, cute, trendy, youthful and sparky.
Reese knows how to turn on the charm with anything she wears, so much so that even when the actress was pregnant lately, she didn’t use it as an excuse to step out dressed in anything she could lay her hands on.
5. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow is best known for her amazing red carpet appearances, but this star sizzles even when she is not dressed for the red carpet. She keeps it simple and that’s what works for this beauty each and every time.
4. Angelina Jolie
Is there any best dressed or best looks or most beautiful or the sexiest list that Angelina Jolie doesn’t make it to? Never! And we’re sure you’re not surprised with her appearance on this list too. It’s not that people who make these lists are fixated with Angelina, but it is just that this star always gives us a million reasons to include her on these lists.
And this time again, Angelina’s clothes and fashion sense bring her to our list of the best dressed celebrities of 2012.
3. Kim Kardashian
Although Kim could get pretty controversial at times (with her clothes too), but it is her very clothes that we love (hate sometimes). Kim could tutor curvy women on how to dress to flatter your body and she would rock at it, just as she rocks in everything that she wears.
2. Emma Stone
Emma Stone hardly goes unnoticed these days and it’s not only for her acting skills or the number of movies in her kitty, but it is also because of the way this beauty dresses up. Casuals, formals, evening gowns and cocktail dresses; Emma confidently carries herself in everything and that’s probably what adds to her look.
1. Kate Middleton
And the Duchess of Cambridge is finally here. Ever since Kate Middleton has come into the limelight pre and post her royal marriage, there are many women all over the world who have fallen in love with her clothes. The Duchess seems naturally gifted with a royal fashion sense and she effortlessly brings grace, poise, beauty and zing to everything she wears. Her dresses, shoes, clutches, gowns and even her casual wear are always complete with a touch of royalty. We really hope that we could win free passes to the Duchess’ closet someday.
We have got to hand it over to some of our celebrities for putting so much effort and thought into each and every look of theirs and coming up with something fabulous each time. We wonder if some of these are naturally gifted with an amazing fashion sense or is there a prescribed book from where they pick these tips up? We’d love to have both!
