We’ve enjoyed hearing Bravo star Tabatha Coffey’s take on star styles this year — and don’t worry, she’s coming back for more in 2013! But she recently took time out of her busy shooting schedule to critique the best in star style this year, and we have to say, she made some very solid picks. Read on to find out who earned top honors!
How can I sum up 2012? It was a very, very colorful year for fashion, to say the least. We saw vibrant shades of red, tangerine and yellow, and soft pastels like robin’s egg blue and dusty lilac. It was refreshing to see a broader spectrum this year since in past drab neutrals have made starlets and musicians appear washed out and aged beyond their years.
Hair consisted of unpretentiously styled updos, whimsical braids, topknots and classic old Hollywood-esque chignons. Makeup was clean and fresh; less smoky eyes, more natural and effortless. It was a year to control the overall look and not let the overall look control you. With that said, here are my five favorite red carpet looks for 2012:
1. Emma Stone. Undeniably my all-time favorite look for 2012; Emma looks absolutely ravishing in red at the Oscars. This is the epitome of old Hollywood glamour. The length, draping and striking color of this Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown is perfection. Most importantly, her hair is styled exactly as it should be. When you have a collar like this, the hair needs to be up and off the shoulders. What you can’t see in this image is how beautiful the hair is pulled back into a twisted chignon. The accessories have the right amount of bling and I’m in love with this Louis Vuitton clutch.
