Top 10 Red Carpet Dresses of 2012
The most remembered red carpet dresses of 2012
The new-year is coming so we thought it is time to look back and have a glance at some of the top red carpet dresses of 2012. Whether it is revealing gowns with plunging necklines, body conscious silhouette, or leg-baring thigh-high slits, the designs have always been about adding spice to fashion. This is substantiated by the trendiest clothes worn on some of the top red carpet events of this year, as listed down below:
Angelina Jolie’s Atelier Versace dress
This was the dress that defined the year. Angelina Jolie’s black Versace with its thigh-high slit was the most talked about dress on the red carpet and stole the show at the Oscars in February. She struck a saucy pose with her exposed leg extended, inspiring Twitter trends, photobombs and a whole sub-set of celebrities “doing an Angelina” on the red carpet in the months that followed.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford frock
Angelina and Gwyneth were the Oscar red carpet’s yin and yang. Gwyneth’s pristine Tom Ford dress complete with cape, reportedly inspired by Jackie Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural ball gown, jostled for top fashion honours with Angelina’s black dress.
Beyonce’s Givenchy Couture see-through dress
Daughter Blue Ivy was born in January and in May, Beyonce made a jaw-dropping red carpet return in this sensational black lace and feathered Givenchy gown at the Met Gala 2012. Flashbulbs popped, headlines were written and Beyonce went down in fashion history.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Elie Saab dress
Ash’s grey Elie Saab wouldn’t have made a this list if it hadn’t been for the fact that the new mother was very distinctly plus-size when she wore it on the Cannes red carpet in May. Ash wore the clingy dress with a big smile and a carefree wave of her hand, thumbing her nose at the critics who complained about her failure to lose her baby weight. Unmindful of the extra kilos revealed by the unforgiving dress, Ash’s message was clear – she wasn’t going to be thin for anyone else. We give her full marks for sheer attitude.
Maria Menounos’ Maria Lucia Hohan dress
Maria Menounos, American actress and journalist donned aa amazing mint green at Oscar 2012. She added heavy earrings and looked outstanding on red carpet.
Sofia Vergara’s Vera Wang mermaid dress
Her habit of picking eye-catching dresses included this midnight blue strapless Vera Wang she wore to the Golden Globe Awards 2012 held in January. The dress, and the Harry Winston jewellery she wore it with, placed Sofia firmly on the top of all best dressed lists.
Demi Lovato’s Marchesa dress
Demi wore a beautiful strapless form-fitting gown with golden embroidery at the bodice from Marchesa’s Resort 2012 collection to the People’s Choice Awards 2012 ceremony. The dress was beautiful and framed her new curves well, but I just wish it had been a little less snug in the bust. This is probably the only picture I could find where she wasn’t ‘busting out’ a little bit on the sides.
Charlize Theron’s Dior dress
Charlize Theron made sure all eyes were on her as she appeared on the red carpet of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards in a light rosy Dior Couture gown with a long train.
Taylor Swift’s Elie Saab dress
Taylor Swift wowed the paparazzi at the ARIA Awards in Sydney wearing an impeccably elegant, Grecian-inspired flowing cream Elie Saab gown. Taylor teamed the stylish gown with a retro-style, twisted hairstyle, while counterbalancing the dress’s cream color with a slick of bold red lipstick and dramatic blue eye make-up as she settled into her new metropolitan surroundings.
Jennifer Lopez’s Zuhair Murad dress
The actress-slash-pop star wore an eye-catching Zuhair Murad gown with a very low-cut neck and cutout shoulders. Yeah, she had some nip slip, but don’t you agree that she looked just fabulous! But I really wish she’d switch up her signature hairdo from that huge bun…
