Just as the sunsets on the 2012 Red Carpet looks the kick-off for 2013 Awards Season is waiting just around the corner, so before we starting ohh and awe along with wondering what celeb X and Y were thinking in 2013, we present to you our picks for the Top 10 red carpet looks of 2012.
Starting at #10 we have Nicole Kidman in Lanvin at the 2012 Cannes Festival, after a few mishaps on other award show red carpets it was nice to see Nicole in this fabulous one-shoulder gown. We have watched Kristen Stewart go from funky cocktail dresses to couture gowns on the red carpet and our favorite just has to be the nude and gold corset Zuhair Murad gown she wore to the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere in Hollywood. This gown was all sex and just little bit of sass and was just the red carpet moment Ms. Stewart needed to make to signal the last Twilight Saga film.
Ginnifer Goodwin was somehow always managed to pull-off the unusual dress/gown choice when hitting the red carpet, but for the Emmy’s she hit it out of the park with our #8 pick, a bright red/orange graphic print gown from Monique Lhuillier was the breathe of fresh air the Emmy’s red carpet needed. We’ll admit to having a slight love-affair with Ashley Greene, the girl knows her fashion and has yet to look good on a red carpet. Our #7 pick is her custom made Donna Karan Atelier blush slik gown that we wore to the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere. The color and fit were perfect for both Ms. Greene and the event.
The Oscars always prove to show the best of the best in both awards and fashion, but when Gwyneth Paltrow hit the carpet in our #6 look, a fresh-off-the-runway Tom Ford Fall 2012 white dress and cape all our mouths did a gasp, this looks was pure perfection and was all the buzz on Twitter. Our #5 look can be summed up in three words: Charlize Theron (in) Dior.
Emma Stone had a big summer with the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man, she had so many red carpet and photo call looks we dedicated a whole best dressed article to her, but our hands down favorite and #4 look is the black Elie Saab jumpsuit she wore to the London Premiere. The Met Gala is what is billed as the Oscars for Fashion and while their were plenty of outstanding looks we once again tip our hats off to Ms. Donna Karan whose custom Donna Karan Atelier gown on actress Nina Dobrev looked like liquid metal and fit like a glove, it was so amazing we gave it our #3 spot.
Jessica Chastain has had a big year with several films, an Oscar Nomination and a play on Broadway so it is almost fitting that she get our #2 spot for the gold and nude Gucci gown she wore to the Cannes Film Festival.
It should go with our saying that our #1 look goes to Angelina Jolie, she cemented herself at the top of this list when she kicked out her right leg in that black velvet Atelier Versace dress at the Oscars. Her right leg was so popular it spawned it’s own Twitter account, thousands of meme’s, and even Jim Rash (who took the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay) spoofed the pose during his acceptance speech.
