Diane Kruger in custom Nina Ricci at Cannes International Film Festival
From awards shows to movie premieres to fashion parties, it’s been quite a year on the red carpets. We saw new sartorial heroines emerge, like Jennifer Lawrence during her Hunger Games promotional tour, as well as established greats like Michelle Williams and Diane Kruger continue to bring their A games. With stunning look after stunning look to choose from, selecting a short list of the 10 best dressed of 2012 was a near impossible task. With much deliberation, we finally settled on the 10 that made our jaws drop and raised the red carpet bar.
What do you think of our top 10 best dressed of the year – did we nail it, or did we miss some of your favourites? Do tell!

Kirsten Dunst wore a swimsuit in Mexico last week, and I find this to be 100% newsworthy. Why? I get a lot of flak from the Mister for the mini collection of one-piece bathing suits I’ve been building up of late. But surely if they meet the high sartorial standards of Kirsten Dunst, who ingeniously wore this impeccable canary yellow ensemble earlier this year, then they’re more than fine for little ol’ me.
Besides, a keyhole and cleverly-placed cutouts, plus that cute hat, more than make up for the extra bits of fabric elsewhere, wouldn’t you say?

Diane Kruger in Chanel Resort 2013
After 12 days of nonstop celebrity red carpet fashions, the 2012 edition of the Cannes Film Festival sadly came to an end yesterday. Because we’re obviously already in withdrawal, we thought we’d relive our favourite sartorial moments with – what else? – a best dressed list.
Leading the pack with a perfect run at Cannes this year was Diane Kruger, who wore three of our most memorable looks. She donned an ethereal mint green Giambattista Valli couture gown on opening night and continued to blow us away throughout the festival. Her Nina Ricci dress at the “Killing Them Softly” premiere was divine, while her Chanel frock at the amFAR Gala was quite possibly our favourite look of hers ever. Her hair, make-up and accessories were impeccable too.
Models Liya Kebede and Natasha Poly looked nothing short of fabulous in a sharp Roberto Cavalli suit and head-to-toe Gucci respectively. Actress Bérénice Bejo was a lovely surprise in a printed Giambattista Valli dress with Olympia Le-Tan book clutch in hand, while Paz Vega looked fierce in a feathered Stephane Rolland couture creation.
Vogue Nippon Editor-at-Large Anna Dello Russo stunned in white Alberta Ferretti, Chinese actress Yao Xingtong looked gorgeous in blue Elie Saab couture, and Kirsten Dunst was picture perfect in a to-die-for Dolce & Gabbana dress and Charlotte Olympia shoe pairing.
There you have it – our 10 best dressed at the 65th Festival de Cannes. Who made your list?

Kirsten Dunst showed up to a dinner in honour of Rodarte at the Chateau Marmont last week in head-to-toe canary yellow. The Melancholia actress paired a Stella McCartney Resort 2012 blazer with metallic jacquard pants from Rodarte’s Spring 2012 collection. She accessorized with a black clutch, Jimmy Choo sandals and even more yellow, dangling from her ears.
A tad on the bright side? Not at all. Kirsten took a risk with this ensemble, and I absolutely adore it. It’s vibrant, joyful and incredibly chic. A ray of sartorial sunshine, if I may.
