2014 has been a big year for the fashion world. With events like the Cannes Film Festival, the British Fashion Awards, the Clooney wedding and more glamorous red carpets than you could imagine, we have pulled together some of the most stylish celebrity outfits of 2014.
A couple of years ago, Jennifer Lawrence shot to fame as Katniss from the Hunger Games, and after that the starlet has been hitting it big with movies such as American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook. This year she topped GLAMOUR’s Best Dressed list, and it wasn’t for Katniss’s jumpsuit and combat boots that helped her battle her way through the arena. One look at the quirky star’s attire at this year’s Oscars and you will understand why she is every bit deserving of that title. Wearing a bold red Christian Dior column dress with a peplum detail, she stuns the crowd with class and sophistication. Her hair and minimal jewellery adds to the elegance of her outfit.
Jessica Alba has long been known for her sex symbol status, and she lived up to the world’s expectations at the Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards in California earlier this year. The gorgeous mother of two wore a bold little black dress by David Koma, which featured leather cage detailing and mesh cut-outs. She emphasised her strapless dress with black strappy heels by Hugo Boss and a Diane von Furstenberg clutch.
Hart of Dixie star Jaime King attended the God’s Love We Deliver 2014 Golden Heart Awards wearing a glamorous canary yellow dress by Michael Kors. She paired up her cutout dress with gold python sandals and a matching clutch, both from the same Michael Kors Spring 15 collection.
Taylor Swift seems to always find herself as the centre of attention, whether it be for the latest ex-boyfriend she is singing about or for her super close friendship with Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss. However, this dress deems her worthy of attention for all the right reasons. She donned this gold metallic Gucci gown to this year’s Grammy Awards, and she looked so enviably glamorous.
British movie star Emma Watson has come so far from her Harry Potter days, and when it comes to the world of fashion Watson gets it right every single time. She was recently awarded with the British Style Award, and no one deserved it more than her. The style queen stepped up the usual red carpet frock with a modern, tailored suit by Saint Laurent, which she wore to the Late Show with David Letterman this year. And there is something to be said about a woman who can even make a pants/dress combo look good, as with the vibrant Christian Dior ensemble that made a huge statement at the 2014 Golden Globes. It was a daring move, but she pulled it off beautifully.
Kate Hudson was blessed with natural good looks. Pair that will a super stylish ensemble and what more could you want in the world of fashion? The 2014 Oscars saw her in a stunning white cape gown by Atelier Versace, with beading, woven detailing, a deep plunging neckline and elegant train. The sophisticated detailing made this gown a stand out amongst all Oscar frocks at this year.
Blake Lively may be pregnant, but that hasn’t stopped her from looking super glamorous on the red carpet. She showed off her baby bump and pregnancy curves in this pale yellow Gucci gown at the Angel Ball in New York. The dress had a plunging neckline and was skin-tight in all the right places for Lively. She proves that maternity wear can be every bit as glamorous as any red carpet frock.
French actress Marion Cottilard radiated with elegance at the Dior Fashion Show during this year’s Paris Fashion Week. She wears Dior’s version of a little black dress, which just happens to be super sophisticated. This ensemble made Harpers Bazaar’s list of The 100 Best Little Black Dresses of 2014.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr knows all about glamour and is known for her stylish flair in the fashion world. This ensemble from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 collection shows a bolder side to the model’s typical style, and was perfectly fitted to the event and venue. She donned this at the Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Celebration at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
With her own esteemed fashion line, one would always expect Victoria Beckham to look glamorous. At this years British Fashion Awards, the former Spice Girl wore a baggy, backless black jumper paired with a long black and white shirt from her own brand. Though her ensemble wasn’t as dramatic as some of the other celebrities, she looked amazing and her outfit was put together with such flair that only Victoria Beckham has.
And of course, there’s Amal Clooney’s wedding dress. It was one of the most talked about weddings of the year, and the bride looked stunning in her Oscar de la Renta gown. “George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” Mrs Clooney told Vogue. And the couple made this seem almost effortless.
Model Cara Delevingne deserves an honourable mention in any fashion related piece, for always looking stunning regardless of the event. She wore a Stella McCartney ensemble to this year’s Met Gala, and looked like quite the fashion icon in white pants, black cut-out crop top and heels.
Also in attendance at the Met Gala is Gangster Squad star Emma Stone, looking super feminine and delightful in a red and pink Thakoon outfit. Simple but so effective, she manages to look effortlessly classy, which is topped off by her very minimal accessories and braid.
Rosie Huntington-Whitely looked stunning at the Cannes Film Festival that took place earlier this year. The model wore a strapless silk chiffon gown with beaded detailing from Gucci Première, and looked absolutely flawless. Her gown was the standout without distraction from any unnecessary accessories.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland proved that crop tops can be super glamorous with her custom Christian Siriano coral and white two piece outfit. She wore this to the 2014 Emmy Awards, looking mature and sophisticated.
Actress Kate Beckinsale wowed crowds at this year’s Golden Globes, looking as elegant and glamorous as ever. She donned a strapless, silver Zuhair Murad gown with embellished detailing. Her hair and accessories were amazing with her ensemble, right down to her black nail polish.
