    Our Favourite Dresses of 2012!

    December 29, 2012

    Ah 2012, you have gone so fast, we have been having a look over our top red carpet moments of the year. Such pretty, pretty dresses! Here are our favourites. Above, we ADORE everything Diane Kruger wears, she is our top style icon of the year and the sparkly Vivienne Westwood dress she wore is our top pick. We also love Jessica Biel (above right) standing out from the crowd in Giambattista Valli Couture.

    In no particular order, we loved Gwyneth Paltrow in her caped Tom Ford number, Blake Lively channeling a 1970’s Jerry Hall in Zuhair Murad Couture, amazing Alexa always pulls it out of the bag, this time in Chanel and Emma Stone looks stunning in Gucci.

    Looking good ladies!
