They always get there first. Top celebs are always leading the way in the fashion world, most of the time looking flawless. But that’s what they’re there for. If a celeb isn’t wearing it is it a style worth bothering with? Probably not. So to get your celeb style for this year spot on, take a quick look at our celebrity style guide for 2012.
While we may not all be asked to sashay down a red carpet that doesn’t mean we can’t play things a little dangerously when we step out. Zoe Saldana may be known for her roles in Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Trek, but we love her for her red carpet risk taking too. Wearing anything from bold colours to ruffles with ease she’s proof that a little risk can often pay off. So be bold with colour this summer!
Chic and sophisticated
This may be the opposite of taking risks, but it all depends on the occasion. No other celebrity quite does chic and stylish like Kate Middleton. Famous for her demure style, she’s credited with last year’s boom in shrugs and boleros. Whilst we can’t all afford gowns made by Alexander McQueen, the Duchess is also famed for her love of high-street brands. If Kate can stay chic and stylish by shopping on the high-street, so can you!
The stunning Frieda Pinto shot to fame in Slumdog Millionaire. Since then she’s been seen on red carpets all over the world and always in daring glamorous outfits. But it’s her use of vivid prints that we just love. You’ll often see her wearing minimal classic white pieces and upgrading them with dazzling prints. Prints are huge this summer, but take care to really make the look work for you.
Classic evening wear
If you’re looking for the perfect evening wear you can’t go wrong with checking out the red carpet action. We just love Rosie Huntington-Whitley’s style. Yes she has that body and that face, but she also knows how to find a classic, under-stated evening wear look. Take the white dress she wore during London Fashion Week – perfect. If you’re looking for formal evening wear, follow Rosie’s lead and keep it simple.
