Today we’re continuing our Best of 2012 roundups with the Outfit of the Year!
This year you guys were very vocal (as usual!), and named quite a few stand out choices. Check out the nominees below.
1. Beyoncé in Givenchy at the 2012 Met Gala
It seems Beyoncé has these yearly jaw-dropping moments. After spending months in hibernation nursing her newborn, Queen Bey wowed the masses in this Givenchy lace gown as she hit the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala.
With such an extravagant frock, she knew it would be best to keep things minimal on the beauty front. She pulled her hair back into a sleek ponytail, and added coral gloss to her lips.
2. Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy at the 2012 Met Gala
Solange Knowles is always one to watch on the red carpet. She clung to yellow (a color that works beautifully with her skin tone), in this Rachel Roy strapless gown, and accessorized with Lady Grey cuffs at the 2012 Met Gala.
3. Rihanna in Tom Ford at the 2012 Met Gala
The 2012 Met Gala had many memorable looks, and here’s another. Rihanna had the crowd talking when she showed up in a form fitting Tom Ford crocodile dress.
A known hair chameleon, RiRi wore her tresses in an interesting set of knotted buns. Her makeup was muted, and topped with a nude lip.
4. Rita Ora in Marchesa at the 2012 EMAs
Rita Ora has been one of the breakout stars of the year, and as such has landed on our list for best of the year. We often watched her style go from tomboy chic to red carpet glam overnight. However, her red lace Marchesa gown worn at the 2012 EMAs left a lasting impression.
For the evening, she stayed true to her signature curls and red lips.
5. Rihanna in Armani at the 2012 Grammy Awards
Rihanna is well seasoned in shutting down the red carpet. The singer showed up to the 2012 Grammy Awards in a breathtaking black Armani gown complete with a daring deep V. She also jumpstarted our love affair with Christian Louboutin Unbouts.
Her makeup was fresh and without fuss as she allowed her shaggy blonde ‘do to take center stage.
Which outfit was your favorite?
Stay tuned for most Best Of’s as the year winds down!
