Y’all may have noticed by now that I have kind of an obsessive quality in me. Anything ‘cool’ is ‘the coolest thing ever‘; Marion Cotillard is never just ‘a great actress’– she’s ‘glorious’ and she ‘redefines my life.’ LOL. Being obsessive and having the tendency to exaggerate is great fun… unless you’re trying to pick, like, 50 great red carpet looks from the past year. And then it’s not fun. Because 50 becomes 75, and 75 becomes 100, and here we are with the most ginormous gallery of photos in the history of photo galleries, lol! Join me inside as I try to explain why-oh-why you’re about to spend the next 35-45 minutes staring at 100 of THE most unforgettable celebrity fashion looks of 2012!!!
Okay, so here’s what happened. I tried. I really tried to just pick ONE Blake Lively look. But how was I supposed to do that when she had 72 that I luuuuurved? And was I actually supposed to pick ONE Jennifer Lawrence, look when she was looking all kinds of amazing at her various Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook premieres? LMAO, it wasn’t gonna happen. So you’ll notice that some of my favorite celebs to ogle over (like Solange, Taylor Swift, and Kristen Stewart) have, like, 5 unforgettable looks from 2012. There was nothing I could do about it, so we’re all gonna have to deal with it… and try to enjoy the gallery, lol.
At one point, when I had about 130 photos, the love of my life was all like, ‘Just pick one Rihanna pic.’ I looked at him like he had 8 heads (and all I could see on each of those 8 heads was a pic Rihanna in some dress I wanted) and I was like Yeah. Sure. Then I’ll just pick ONE J-Law look. And ONE Miranda Kerr look. And ONE Kate Winslet movie to watch for the rest of my life… when there are 7 that I love! NO! I won’t do it!
So yeah, please enjoy this photo gallery that took me longer than I’ll ever talk about (okay, it took most of yesterday, and some of today). Trust me, you’re gonna wanna make it to the end. Queen Britney closes it out, so yeah. Get there!
And if there are any looks you love, love, love, and you wanna know who the designer is, just let me know and I’ll try to find it for you! Sooo many awesome looks had to get left out– the biggest omission for me is Ashley Greene‘s Donna Karan Atelier gown, which was actually one of my faves for the year, but by the time I realized I’d forgotten to put it in the gallery, I’d already sworn a blood oath to stop adding photos! Had a similar sense of regret over the lack of Julianne Hough; she’s had some great looks this year. So if you can find a pic of one fashion look you loved that’s not in the gallery, feel free to add it in the comments! Oh, and this is a very sexist post. There are, like, no dudes, lol! But I think we’ll have a Best Of 2012: Hot Guys list coming soon ;)
How crazy was this year in fashion?!?! So much fun, so much fab! And in case you want a few more comprehensive ‘Best Of’ fashion lists, do go to Red Carpet Fashion Awards. They make a huuuuge deal of categorizing the year’s fashionistas (and fashionistos) and their lists are really fun.
Don’t forget to check out our Top 10 That-Ish-Cray stories of 2012! Sooo much cray!!!
