Red carpet moments of 2012
The year's most memorable moments.
by Tracey Lomrantz Lester
The year kicked off with a bang, starting with January's Golden Globes and Charlize Theron's drop-dead-gorgeous Christian Dior gown. The styling took this look from fabulous to OMG unforgettable.
Remember that time the Duchess showed some decolletage? She took a bit of a risk in this gorgeous teal lace gown by Jenny Packham at an Olympics event back in May.
Kristen Stewart took a sophisticated departure from her usual minidress obsession in this sheer Zuhair Murad dress--and won your vote for her best look of a very busy week. It was also a brilliant way to make people go, "What cheating scandal!?"
What the what is this, you ask? Just Nicki Minaj trying to cause a ruckus on the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards. She was wearing Little Red Riding Hood by way of Versace, and her date was the pope. It's almost like she was saying, "Your move, Gaga."
Then again, even the blonde beauty couldn't steal the spotlight from the night's true star, Angelina Jolie's right leg. Her Atelier Versace number--and the gorgeous gam sticking unusually far out of it--made for the year's most memorable red carpet moment and a meme all its own.
It was a rough year for Heidi Klum, not least of all because someone told her this Versace number was a good idea. Thankfully she made up for it with a slew of other wardrobe changes while she was hosting the MTV EMAs.

Things we learned backstage at the fall 2014 runway shows: Bold brows aren’t going anywhere, bright green can actually look subtle, and glitter is amazing almost anywhere (within reason). Here, our favorite makeup looks of the season so far.
The fall runways showcased a broad range of hairstyles—braids, buns, ponytails, and even wigs. But there were unifying themes, too: A pervasive sense of ease; experimentation with texture; and an apparent belief that anything goes.

So, it hasn’t snowed in nearly a week—does that mean it’s summer yet? Well, almost. But alas, just because you’re confident setting aside your trusty Sorel boots unfortunately doesn’t mean you get to hop right into an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie yellow polka dot bikini just yet.
