As 2012 comes to a close and the 2013 red carpet season starts later this week, we will leave you with our summary of the fashion highlights of 2012. From the best dressed to the worst dressed and the sexiest fashion event of the year, there hasn’t been one dull moment.
Yahoo Lifestyle UK! via Grazia, on December 30, 2012, listed its picks for the best dressed women of 2012. The judging panel included fashion gurus like designers Zuhair Murad and Manolo Blanik. The panel chose Kate Moss as the No. 1 best dressed in 2012. While we love Moss's style, our list focuses on red carpet fashion events.
From the People’s Choice Awards in January 2012 to the last award show of the year, each red carpet was filled with stars rocking latest trends, styles and runway threads. Just because the gowns were expensive doesn’t mean they were all gorgeous. Some were great, some were bad and others were downright ugly.
The Fashion Examiner’s list of the top fashion highlights of 2012:
The most popular fashion moment of 2012: This award goes to Angelina Jolie for the most photographed right leg in red carpet history. Who knew that Jolie’s pose would be the most buzzed about fashion moment this year? The thigh high slit, the jutting of the right leg and that lush, velvet black dress made for the most memorable moment this year. (Click here for photos and to read the full article).
The worst red carpet look of 2012: Twilight star Kristen Stewart nabs the award for this title. It was Stewart’s sheer Erdem dress on the ‘On the Road’ red carpet that did her in. The actress deserved a fashion ticket and fine for wearing the ugly dress, paired a pair of ‘few sizes too large’ orange Christian Louboutin heels.

The sexiest fashion event of 2012: There is only one event that can be classified as the sexiest fashion event of 2012.
