A Look Back at 2012 Style
The year 2013 is just on the horizon which means it’s time to look back at the most popular styles of 2012. This past year has seen some breakout stars especially when it comes to men’s styles, and some questionable choices even from our favorite celebs. It’s also seen some stars who have matured and grown into their own style and who have become standouts on the red carpet.
Solange Knowles was one style star that everyone kept an eye on this last year. She came out from under the shadow of her famous sister, Beyonce, and became a fashion star in her own right. Her casual chic, city style was always slick and colorful and her own unfussy beauty always shone through. She has been named as the ambassador for Giorgio Armani’s brand designed for younger customer, Armani Jeans, and no doubt will continue to make a name for herself when it comes to fashion.
The daughter of pop megastar Phil Collins, Lily Collins has also come out from under the shadow of her famous father to emerge as a very talented actress and fashion diva. Lily was featured in the films The Blind Side and Mirror, Mirror, and has written columns for Elle Girl, Seventeen, and Vogue Teen. Lily’s talent for knowing just the right outfit for any event or occasion is what makes her a fashion star; when casual, she might wear Capri jeans with platform sandals and a fun scarf, but for red carpet appearances it’s always the best designers and lots of sparkle.
Another breakout style star is American football player Tom Brady, known also for being the husband to supermodel Gisele Bundchen. It may be his wife’s influence but Tom has been showing quite a flair for fashion when off the field, wearing the best tuxedos and dapper suits that put any male model to shame. His casual style is just as enviable, with soft sweaters over button-up shirts and loafers paired with jeans.
One star whose style has seemed to suffer a bit this year is actor Brad Pitt. Once considered a major heartthrob for his California good looks, Brad these days is often seen with long, shaggy hear and a beard and mustache to match. While some may appreciate the roughhewn look on him, others are wondering if he’s spending too much time with the children and not enough time on his own looks! His recent commercial for Chanel was mocked mercilessly on the internet, partially because of Brad’s rough look.
The year has seen some style breakouts and some head scratchers, but the year has given fashion lovers something to watch. No doubt 2013 will hold its own surprises and bring with it a few new breakout stars as well.
