Top 10 Best Dressed Stars of 2022: Florence Pugh, Sadie Sink, Jodie Turner-Smith, & More!


As 2022 comes to an end, let’s take a stylish look back at the most stylish & best dressed stars of the year! This list, in no particular order, showcases entertainers whose red carpet choices have pushed boundaries, made headlines, & furthered their stylish legacy!

First, actress Jodie Turner-Smith turned heads in a variety of bold, powerful, & modern looks, channeling old Hollywood with a futuristic twist. Most notably, the White Noise star dominated the Venice Film Festival red carpet. Additionally, she wore designer names to other star-studded events, such as Gucci, Christopher John Rogers, Christian Siriano, & more!

The 36-year-old British star can be seen next in the Jennifer Aniston-Adam Sandler comedy sequel Murder Mystery 2, which will surely invite more breathtaking style to the red carpet.

Next, Pam & Tommy star Lily James rose to a new level of bombshell that we hadn’t previously seen in such quiet, sweet period depictions the actress presented in Downton Abbey, Cinderella, or The Pursuit of Love; however, portraying Pamela Anderson in the Hulu miniseries showed the British leading lady’s sultry, dramatic, & mature style.

Whether she’s decked out in Valentino, Burberry, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, or Miu Miu, she’s constantly appeared on best dressed lists throughout 2022. Up next, Lily will be promoting the romantic comedy What’s Love Got to Do with It? & starting alongside Willem Defoe & Joe Keery in Finalmente I’alba. Also, Lily is nominated for a Golden Globe, so she’ll continue her style streak into 2023!

Academy Award nominee Florence Pugh is unstoppable on the big screen with such masterful performances in Don’t Worry Darling & The Wonder. Time & again, she’s proven her enduring, youthful, & dazzling sense of style on the red carpet, especially during her nipple-baring appearances. She’s not just another British star topping our list, but a force who kills it in Victoria Beckham, Valentino, Dior, Emilia Wickstead, & more!

There’s so much buzz about Florence, which is no surprise after she ruled the Venice Film Festival, British Independent Film Awards, 13th Governors Awards, & 66th BFI London Film Festival. For 2023, Florence has multiple projects in the works, including A Good Person, directed by former beau Zach Braff, & Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer.

It’s no secret that I adore everything that Cuban actress Ana de Armas wears. The ease with which she graces the red carpet is reminiscent of Grace Kelly…or dare I say, Marilyn Monroe?! The Blonde star is far from resting on the stylish path she’s forged as she’s nominated for a Golden Globe Award, which will surely present the opportunity to sport more Louis Vuitton!

The Oscar hopeful is currently I production opposite her Knives Out co-star Chris Evans in Ghosted & will portray a dancer-turned-assassin with Keanu Reeves in Ballerina.

One of 2022’s major breakout stars is Bridgerton actress Simone Ashley, who seemed to pop up everywhere there was a camera & red carpet, & for good reason too! Also, appearing on Sex Education, Simone pushes the line between elegance & temptress in designs by Giorgio Armani, Jacquemus, Moschino, Gucci, & Burberry, adding some much-needed fierceness & poise at every turn!

Also, Simone will be lending her voice to some upcoming animated productions, including 10 Lives, as well as appearing in the third season of Bridgerton.

Actress-turned director Olivia Wilde may have been splashed across headlines in 2022 for criticism of her relationships, but that did stop her from proving her style prowess every chance she had. While promoting the controversial futuristic thriller Don’t Worry Darling, as well as walking the red carpet of the Women in Film Awards, ELLE Women in Hollywood Celebration, 2nd Annual Academy Museum Gala, San Sebastian International Film Festival, or the Venice Film Festival, Olivia’s boho goddess gowns stunned.

Often going for a deep-v, long sleeves, or crop top, Olivia’s fashion was designed by YSL, Vera Wang, Alexandre Vauthier, Valentino, Gucci, & more! Up next for Olivia, she will direct Perfect about Olympic gold medalist gymnast Kerri Strug & can currently be seen in Babylon with Margot Robbie & Brad Pitt.

Stranger Things star Sadie Sink has not only ruled 2022 because of the hit sci-fi/fantasy Nextflix show as the brooding & tortured Max Mayfield, but the 20-year-old is gaining major attention for her big screen performance in The Whale, opposite Oscar front-runner Brendan Fraser. The Texas native sparkled on the red carpet, for press appearances, & on magazine covers, especially wearing unforgettable looks by Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, & more!

As we’ve already seen from Sadie’s Stranger Things role & tour-de-force portrayal in Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well: Short Film,” her style is only getting better & she’s one to watch in 2023 with an upcoming role in Berlin Nobody opposite Eric Bana.

Next on our list is comedian, actress, & writer Mindy Kaling who took 2022 by storm via red carpet & her Instagram with confidence & a major style turnaround from what we’ve previously seen. Whether she’s presenting at the Emmy Awards, posing for photogs at the Met Gala, turning heads at museum galas, heading out to a boutique opening, Mindy is all about showing off her style & happiness in an array of classic gowns with bold colors & patterns for outfits that we’d kill for!

Some of the famous names she’s worn this year include Oscar de la Renta, LaQuan Smith, Tory Burch, Magda Butrym, & more! We can’t wait to see what Mindy has in store for us in 2023!

This year’s Oscar-winner for Best Actress was awarded to Jessica Chastain & she’s definitely not slowing down her style, nor should she! The gorgeous redhead continues her glamorous fashion streak in fitted gowns in hues across the rainbow & plunging mini dresses! The actress has previously been nominated 3 other time & she’s no stranger to the red carpet, having donned every style of ball gown for last decade & more! She’s true to who she is, taking risks in neon tones, but also playing with lace, feathering, & ruching, which suits her shape.

This year, Jessica was seen wearing a whole lot of Gucci! Currently, Jessica can be seen portraying country singer Tammy Wynnette in the Showtime miniseries George & Tammy, opposite Michael Shannon. Coming up, Jessica stars in Memory with Peter Sarsgaard & Mother’s Instinct with Anne Hathaway.

Last, but not least is Zoey Deutch, who stole hearts in the Netflix holiday romantic comedy Something from Tiffany’s, wearing looks inspired by the Tiffany & Co. signature blue box! The 28-year-old blonde certainly knows how to steal the scene & rule a red carpet in designers, such as Oscar de la Renta, Giambattista Valli, Valentino, Carolina Herrera, & more!

2022 was really just the beginning for Zoey, a natural Style Darling, but I can’t wait to see what she wears next. Some of her future projects include the comedy Most Dangerous Game with Glen Powell & the drama Hound.

07/01/2022 Darling of the Day: Stranger Things Star Maya Hawke Does Denim-On-Denim in Dior for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!


Stranger Things breakout star Maya Hawke is brilliant, charming, disarming, & super talented–not to mention that she is an advocate for women’s rights, as seen on her recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she not only discussed the highly anticipated second volume of Stranger Things‘ season four on Netflix, but she spoke about the recent overturning of Roe V. Wade by the Supreme Court.

Also, the actress recounted a 2021 essay written by her mother, Academy Award nominee, Uma Thurman, for the Washington Post, regarding her own experiences as a teen having an abortion. I’m so impressed by Maya’s wherewithal & forthcoming advocacy for this human rights violation, & speaking about her mother’s right to freedom of choice, on such a visible platform to educate & inspire young people–not just women–everywhere to take action to own their bodies.

Additionally, Maya attended the interview all smiles, even in its most sincere moments, but also in head-to-toe denim by Dior with a jacket (shop here), jeans (shop here), & closed toe gladiator flats (shop similar here), appearing relatable & comfortable with Jimmy Fallon, who stated that he held young Maya as a baby while spending time with the Thurman-Hawke family.

To recreate Maya’s look, you don’t need a Dior budget, especially when high quality denim from reliable retailers is available, along with a beige tee & options for footwear, inspired by Maya. Check out the on-sale suggestions below to recreate this casual, but chic look for any age:

SHOP: 1. Long-Sleeve Cropped Jean Jacket in dark wash @Old Navy (available in sizes XS-4XL, on sale: $25.00), 2.

A classic look never goes out of style & is always a go-to for nearly any occasion, which was the case for Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron who celebrated her Africa Outreach Project 2022 Summer Block Party in head-to-toe Dior, which took place at the Universal Studios Backlot this past weekend. While Dior isn’t a brand that all of us budget-friendly Style Darlings can depend on on the regular, we can take inspiration from Charlize’s stylish white button-down shirt (shop here), flared jeans (shop similar here), black pointy toe pumps (shop here), black quilted clutch (shop similar here), & Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

SHOP: 1. Mya Curvy High-Waisted Barely Bootcut Jeans in Light Wash @New York & Company & 2. Higher High-Waisted Side-Slit Flare Jeans in Rite @Old Navy.

Cover Craze: Emma Stone for Marie Claire’s September Issue!


I. Love. Emma. Stone. My nose is glued to the screen whenever Emma Stone is promoting a film & has countless red carpet premieres to attend. She’s not only an iconic fashion chameleon, but her all-around girl-next-door goofball vibes makes me feel like we really could be best friends. I’m obsessed with her sense of style & will almost always vote her best dressed, no matter the competition. So, when it came to seeking out what she’s been up to, I was super excited that she was Marie Claire’s September cover star. Emma’s currently promoting her new film, Battle of the Sexes, all about tennis-legend Billie Jean King in 1973 & co-starring Steve Carrell, Emma’s Crazy, Stupid Love on-screen dad, who plays her rival, Bobby Riggs.

The interview for Marie Claire is conducted by funny lady Sarah Silverman, who has a girl crush on Emma that reads quite equal to mine, where Emma discusses the power each of our voices have in times of controversy & political uprising, but also the challenges that the Oscar-winning actress (for of course, La La Land) faced when becoming Billie Jean King for the new film.

The photo shoot (led by Greg Kadel) includes Emma wearing some gorgeous pieces from Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Bulgari, to name a few!

Battle of the Sexes premieres on September 22nd, just in time to kick of awards season & you can be sure that I’ll be on the lookout for Emma’s highly anticipated press tour fashion!

Are you going to see Emma Stone’s new film? Do you like the styling of her Marie Claire cover shoot? Which stars do you love to see on magazines? Happy Styling!
