Gigi Hadid

  • Go To

One of this year's

It Girls was

without a doubt

Gigi Hadid, the

model favouring

cut-outs, cropped

tops and Seventies

styling. Her most

jaw-dropping look

though was the

gold jumpsuit

she had custom

made for the

CFDA Fashion

Awards in June.

Kate Hudson

Another gilded goddess,

Kate Hudson's Michael

Kors gown at the

Met Gala was an

absolute showstopper

- to be expected from

the 36-year-old

style maven.

Julianne Moore

Known for her love of sequins

and pale colours, 55-year-old

Julianne turned heads at the

BAFTAs in a bright red

Tom Ford gown with a

low-cut neckline. Red lips

completed the redhead's

daring look.

Taylor Swift

If there's a

woman that can

rock a short dress,

it's Taylor. The

sparkly mini-dress

she wore to the

iHeart Radio

awards was edgy

and sexy all at once.

Emma Stone

Never one to be


Emma's Lanvin

jumpsuit was an

eccentric choice for

a major red carpet,

but showed off her

toned arms and

quirky sense of

style to perfection.

Cate Blanchett

Black doesn't have to be

boring as emphasised

by Cate's Maison Martin

Margiela gown at the

Academy Awards.

She accessorised with

a stunning turquoise

statement necklace

that turned heads.

Vogue Williams

She works out

six days a week,

so who can

blame the

Irish model

for wanting

to show off

those ripped

abs? Her crop

top and skirt

combo was both


and sexy.

Meryl Streep

She doesn't always

wow on the red

carpet, but Meryl's

sapphire gown

at the Suffragette

premiere made

sure she outshone

her much

younger co-stars.

Monica Bellucci

She's the oldest Bond Girl

ever, but you'd never think

it to look at Monica

Bellucci in emerald

velvet at the Spectre

premiere. Simply stunning.

Lea Seydoux

Monica Bellucci's Spectre

co-star also brought the

fashion drama to the

BAFTAs in a stunning

mustard Prada gown

with cut-outs and

capped sleeves.

Jennifer Lopez

It was the year of barely-there

ballgowns, with everyone

from Beyoncé to Miranda

Kerr baring almost all in

sheer dresses. J-Lo was

consistently the most

outrageously stunning -

at 46, she makes it look easy.

Kim Kardashian

You either love or loathe

Kim's style, but

the coat-style

Jean Paul Gaultier

dress she wore

to the Grammy

Awards in


was definitely

a fashion


of 2015.
