The Best Red Carpet Looks of 2012

Happy New Years Eve everyone! 2012 has been a year to remember. From surviving an "apocalypse" to Beyonce's becoming the world's coolest mom, well, It's been an interesting year. Let's take a look back through the many red carpet reports of 2012 and reminisce on the truly  noteworthy looks of 2012.

When I saw Rita Ora in this red Marchesa dress, it was an absolute no brainer that she would make red carpet history for 2012. Not only is this dress gorgeous, it's hard to pull off. Major props to Rita for having the fashion balls to don this dress, I'm just so glad someone wore it! 
Dior's front woman Charlize Theron has closets full of the brand, so I wasn't particularly shocked when she wore this blushing pink gown to the Golden Globes. What I love about this look is the whole princess fairy vibe it emits, from the elegant hair and nude makeup to the perfect strappy heel, this dress was made for little girls that love to play dress up.

It's not really a years best dressed list if Beyonce isn't on it, right? This new mommy and fierce hip hop mogul turned heads in this custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown at the MET Ball. Honestly, who else could wear this BUT Beyonce?

This was the dress that made me love Zuhair Murad. Blake lively channeled old hollywood at the premiere of her movie Savages, and had fashion critics over the moon. The main thing I love about this look is that its so unique. No one in 2012 has worn anything quite like this. Years from now, I think this will be looked back on an iconic look for Blake, and the designer.
Everyone knows I'm a sucker for pretty colors, and this dress is no exception. Diane Kruger is often known for her extraordinary fashion choices, so when she chose this pretty and ethereal Giambattista Valli gown for the Cannes Film Festival, I was pleasantly surprised. You don't often see a color like this grace the red carpet, so when you do, it's definitely a memorable occurrence.
Never underestimate the power of simplicity. Gwyneth Paltrow's simple yet elegant Tom Ford gown and statement cuff was a huge sartorial success. She's positively glowing, proof that a good dress can be magical ( and a professional crew of makeup artists, but whatever.)
One look at Karolina Kurkovas MET Ball dress and several designer names will pop through your head.Valentino? Dior? Carolina Herrera? Nope, much to everyone's surprise it was a custom Rachel Zoe creation. This glittering gold gown took my breathe away, it's absolutely stunning. While I don't understand the whole head wrap situation, it's almost goes by unnoticed due to the glamour of the dress.
Girls everywhere were gasping with jealousy when Kate Middleton hit the red carpet in this stunning  blue Jenny Packham dress. This dress is just undeniably beautiful, and the fact that its being worn by royalty just adds the icing on top of the cake.
Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev sparkled in her custom black and gold Donna Karan Atelier gown at the MET Ball. Another beautiful custom dress that makes little girls want to play dress up. (sigh)
Since I am a princess at heart, Eva Longoria's Marchesa dress at the Cannes Film Festival had me in awe. This has to be one of my favorites, she looks like pure royalty, I love how the train has a lavender tint, it complements the silver beaded bodice flawlessly.

So that's what the stars offereed us in 2012, hopefully 2013 is full of memorable fashion and even more surprises.
