Happy New Year! I'd thought I'd start the year with a look back at some of the best dressed celebrities from 2012...
Emma Stone firmly cemented her position in the fashion stakes in 2012. She was one of my ones to watch on the red carpet during awards season and was my best dressed at the Golden Globes in a scarlet Lanvin dress paired with a leather belt. I like how she favours tailored pieces alongside more feminine gowns as seen at the People's Choice Awards back in January and on the red carpet for the 'Amazing Spider-Man' London premiere where she chose an embellished Elie Saab jumpsuit. One of my favourite looks was her outfit for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards held in New York in November. She wore a sparkling emerald green skirt paired with a midnight blue satin bustier with a peplum waist from Burberry Prorsum's Spring 2013 collection.
Kate Middleton is one of my top style icons. She always looks so glamorous! The Jubilee tour provided a wealth of outfits to lust over, one of my favourites being the teal LK Bennett dress and jacket with a peplum waist styled with a gold buckle belt. I like how she wears pieces from the high street along with designer items and isn't afraid to wear an outfit more than once! Like the duchess I'm also a big fan of Jenny Packham gowns. Kate was snapped at an Olympic gala concert in London wearing a stunning jewelled dress from her SS12 collection with an elegant lace back and shoulders. The Jubilee weekend saw Kate stepping out in red, white and blue. My favourite look from the celebrations has to be the ivory long sleeved lace McQueen dress custom made by Sarah Burton that she wore to St Paul's Cathedral.
I'm a big fan of Florence Welch and love keeping up with what the flame haired beauty has been spotted wearing! She started the year gracing the cover of January's US Vogue Magazine. I admire how she embraces bold prints and statement pieces. I loved the patterned Moschino suit she wore to the NME awards in March. Florence is a renowned Alexander McQueen fan, she wore one of my favourite pieces from McQueen's AW12 collection to the Met Ball in New York in May. I loved the couture style of the dramatic tiers of the gown. Her impressive tour wardrobe for 'Ceremonials' has been designed by Gucci.
