Now that it’s the new year and award season is quickly upon us, I figured it was a good time to look back on some of my favourite red carpet looks in 2012. Here it goes:
#1: Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford at the Oscars. Not only will this go down as one of the best looks of 2012, it will for sure go down as one of the best looks in Oscar history. She totally nails it with the long & sleek look. The cape is awesome and super dramatic. The accessories also worked really well – love the diamond cuff. Gwyneth’s best look ever.
#2: Jane Fonda in Stella McCartney at Cannes. At 73, Jane’s never looked more amazing. And she totally rocked this Stella McCartney optical illusion dress. Love the long emerald earrings as well – very flattering. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Jane on the red carpet this year.
#3: Diane Kruger in Vivienne Westwood at Cannes. I thought this was the best dress at Cannes this year. Such a good colour and the fit is perfect on her. So glamorous and sexy. Love the minimal accessories as well. You don’t need much with a dress like this.
#4: Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen at TIFF. Such a good look for Kate. Very modern and sexy. The super high slit works so well because of the long sleeves. And love the split in the middle with the sparkles. This is a really good looking dress. And her hair and make-up look awesome too. But I would have picked different shoes.
#5: Charlize Theron in Christian Dior at Snow White and the Huntsman premiere. Totally stunning. The way the dress is constructed and flows as she moves is so beautiful. It’s obviously not for everyone and is pretty dramatic but I think this dress could for sure be in a museum. And she’s styled perfectly as well – the hair, shoes, jewels, make-up. This is fashion.
