From the Grammy Awards to the Golden Globes and the Oscars, 2012 has already given us plenty of opportunities to assess the year's best-dressed women. From daring dresses to classic silhouettes, the best-dressed women of 2012 sure do know how to flaunt what they've got. Read on to discover which five female celebrities are of-the-moment fashion icons.
Sofia Vergara already looks incredible as Gloria on the hit series "Modern Family," but she looks especially lovely at red carpet events. At the 2012 Golden Globes, she wore a strapless Vera Wang gown with a mermaid-like silhouette that was perfect for her hourglass figure. Sexy without being too over-the-top, the dark blue gown featured a sweetheart neckline and an exaggerated train. Her hair was worn down and her makeup was minimal, creating a fresh, sophisticated look. Want to replicate Sofia's style? Don't worry about putting too much effort into your hair and makeup. Instead, invest in some dazzling cuff bracelets and focus on the fit and form of your outfits.
Angelina always seems to be topping best-dressed lists, and 2012 is no exception. Her incredible all-black velvet Atelier Versace dress was a big hit at the 2012 Oscars, namely because of the funky asymmetrical neckline and the thigh-high slit on the right side. She looked classic, stunning and sophisticated, and wore her auburn-toned hair in loose waves. Bold red lips finished the look, and though she wore zero accessories, her black peep-toe pumps added plenty of drama to her head-turning outfit.
America's funny lady Tina Fey has a knack for looking sweet and sophisticated, and she did it again at the 2012 Oscars. She wore a strapless, peplum-style black gown with a matching belt at the waist. Her hair was in a classic up do, and a blue cocktail ring and blue beaded earrings finished the outfit. Dark, smoky eyes and subtle lip gloss added just the right amount of romance to the queen of comedy's look.
Adele won a whopping six Grammy Awards in 2012, including Album of the Year. In addition to talent, she's got killer style, too. The star showed up in a beautiful black gown with subtle sparkle. It had a boat-style neck, three-quarter sleeves and a form-fitting waist, and the hem fell gracefully down to the floor. She wore her blonde hair down in vintage-inspired ringlets and topped off her look with cherry red lipstick and smoldering black eyeliner. Talk about smart and sophisticated!
Natalie Portman is no stranger to best-dressed lists, as she always looks elegant and put together. She turned heads again at the 2012 Oscars, sporting a vintage polka dot gown from Christian Dior. The sleeveless dress had a sweetheart silhouette, a fitted waist and a gorgeous train. To play up the look, she wore a stunning, v-shaped diamond necklace and matching earrings. Her hair was worn down in a vintage style, with side-swept wavy bangs and gently curled ends. Her outfit proved that sometimes the best styles are those that are inspired by the past.
