The red carpets of 2022 have been littered with experimentation, self-expression and also the blurring of codes and genres. Singer Rihanna has added maternity fashion to her style bow. Harry Styles, Timothée Chalamet and Lil Nas X avoided classicism, preferring to play with trends. The pink has spread like a trailer for the upcoming release of the Barbie movie. Jodie Turner-Smith and Taylor Russell have joined the ranks of icons Zendaya, Tilda Swinton and Bella Hadid overnight. Archival, vintage outfits are increasingly coveted choices. Review of the most beautiful outfits of the year.
Blake Lively wowed the gallery as he climbed the stairs for the MET Gala. She literally transformed in front of the cameras, her Versace dress was transformable while being a tribute to Grand Central Station, the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty, oxidation included!
2022 was the year of pink Valentino under the monochrome vision of Pierpaolo Piccioli and Barbiecore for others! Among all the stars who have adopted the current, the singer Saweeti embodied the young and dynamic spirit of the house with this two-piece illuminated by a choker necklace in diamonds from Messika haute joaillerie.
For the MET gala, Kim Kardashian had the idea of slipping into Marilyn Monroe's famous Happy Birthday dress. "It's the original naked dress: that's what was the most shocking," says Kim Kardashian about her big moment. The reality star's choice proved more controversial than others who have worn vintage pieces over the past few months. It must be said that this Marilyn dress is a mythical piece.
Zendaya is always flawless when she walks a red carpet. On the occasion of the Time 100 party, highlighting the most influential people of the year, the star's stylist delved into Bob Mackie's archives, circa fall 1998, to choose this dress that gives the impression that she was braided.
At the Cannes Film Festival, Bella Hadid looked stunning in every outing, but it was this dress from the Schiaparelli collection that was the most memorable of them all. The black creation with a plunging neckline framed a gold necklace imitating the alveoli of the lungs.
Lil Nas X has once again taken a maverick approach to attending the MTV Video Awards. The rapper appealed to the extravagance of designer Harris Reed to design him this outfit consisting of a headdress of black feathers matched with a crinoline and shiny pants.
At the evening celebrating the world of beauty Fenty, Rihanna continued in her momentum to reinvent the wardrobe of the pregnant woman. In an interview, the star pointed out that “pregnancy is a long nine months. You have to have fun”, and that’s exactly what she did, among other things, in this fringed The Attico outfit decorated with Chopard earrings and Messika rings.
It is wearing this Schiaparelli creation with an elongated corset, draped skirt and bolero that required more than 150 hours of work that Taylor Russell carved out a place for herself among the most beautiful outfits of 2022. She attended the premiere of Bones and All at the BFI Festival.
A few weeks ago at the British Fashion Council Awards, Tilda Swinton paid a double tribute with her outfit from designer Charles Jeffrey Loverboy. The prints are based on works by Scottish artist and playwright John Byrne, her former partner and father of her children, whose dress references Byrne's mural for Edinburgh's King's Theatre.
It was a banner year for Harry Styles who took on two film roles in Don't Worry Honey and My Policeman. His Gucci wardrobe allowed him to explore the aesthetics of the 1970s to which he sometimes injected a so-called more feminine touch, redefining the contemporary dandy in the process. In shades of green, here he wears a mismatched suit next to his skin, accessorized with a huge flower in his buttonhole, a handbag, a manicure and pearl rings.
Jodie Turner-Smith has become in recent months the star that we look forward to on premiere and gala evenings. Like a superheroine, she was dressed in a Balmain dress adorned with a frame of golden sequins at the premiere of Background noise.
Timothée Chalamet has a weakness for singular pieces and during the Venice Film Festival, it was his friend, the designer Haider Ackermann, who made him a halterneck blouse coordinated with metallic red pants. Once again, the actor has shown that he likes to play with codes and genre.
At the Oscars after-party, the Vanity Fair Party, Jessica Chastain became one of the most beautiful of the year for the Hollywood elegance that emanates from her head-to-toe Gucci-branded silhouette; not to mention the complementarity of the color of the dress and its fiery hair.
For the hyper-present fashion aspect in Emily in Paris, let's highlight the sensual look of Lily Collins at the premiere of season 3 of the series. She had opted for a Saint Laurent caramel dress and Cartier bracelets.
