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.

The 2013 Oscars are just starting & there’s so much to talk about from tonight’s red carpet, including the anticipation behind the performances from the cast of Les Miserables, as well as the tribute to the James Bond series.

Other notable hits include Jessica Chastain (in Giorgio Armani), Nicole Kidman (in L’Wren Scott), Jennifer Garner (in Gucci), Kerry Washington (in Miu Miu), & Charlize Theron (in Dior Haute Couture).

Red Carpet Review / Runway Rundown: Style Darling’s Top 20 Best Oscar-Worthy Gown Predictions!


We’re less than a month away from the 2013 Academy Awards & the SAG Awards are this weekend! The speculation behind the results inside those envelopes & what the nominees are going to wear have been bouncing around all over the web & for the first time, I’m going to share my fashion predictions, based off the Pre-Fall 2013, Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear, Spring 2013 Haute Couture, & Resort 2013 collection runways. Of course, Oscar-nominated celebrities like Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams & Naomi Watts are subject to one-of-a-kind custom-made haute couture gowns, but it’s been a lot of fun to click around & find the most gorgeous gowns that wowed on the runway. In addition to the nominees who are celebrating their achievements in film, possible presenters like Rachel Weisz, Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner & more will be turning heads on the red carpet.

Surely there will be lots of glitz & glamour, but predictions of trends are hard to tell. There was so much going on at this year’s Golden Globes, including black, black & gold, white, pink, long sleeves, cut-outs, high slits, & nude illusions. Starting off is a gold lamé & embellished gown from Michael Kors Resort 2013 Collection, which was recently featured in a Runway Rundown post. From Carlos Miele‘s Resort 2013 Collection comes this beautiful embellished sweetheart gown with an animal print under-lining. Some might call the white & black-leather accented Emilio Pucci dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 Collection is too safe for the Oscars, but I think it’s a modern & refreshing take on a white gown.

Michael Kors, Carlos Miele, Emilio Pucci, Monique Lhuillier, & Jenny Packham.

For the risk-taking Style Darling, I can see the metallic long-sleeved gown from Monique Lhuillier‘s Pre-Fall 2013 Collection making an entrance on the red carpet. I picked this tangerine Jenny Packham Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collection gown b/c of its unexpected color, but on the right skin-tone, it will certainly set some trends on the red carpet for the rest of the year.

Next, we have a floral-embroidered belted gown by Temperley London, which was featured in the Pre-Fall 2013 Collection. This has a very classic, Zooey Deschanel look to it, which is why I loved including it! Badgley Mischka is a name synonymous with red carpets & perhaps we’ll see this all-over embellished metallic gown from their Pre-Fall 2013 Collection on one of the front-running Oscar nominees. One of my favorite designers forever & always is Marchesa & I wasn’t surprised to see so many red carpet candidates in their Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collection, including this sari-inspired sheer-overlay blue & gold confection.

Temperley London, Badgley Mischka, Marchesa, Collette Dinnigan, & Roberto Cavalli.

I love the feminine softness from the short-sleeved Collette Dinnigan gown from the Resort 2013 Collection. The coral / fuchsia hue is perfect for an ingénue like the ever-changing Dakota Fanning or the retro Krysten Ritter. Roberto Cavalli‘s black sequined & lace overlay corset-structured gown is a stunning choice for a more dramatic look on the red carpet & it’s from the Pre-Fall 2013 Collection.

Designs by Alexandre Vauthier made a style statement at the Golden Globes since both supermodel Heidi Klum & Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery both donned looks, but I picked this leg-baring halter gown from the Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collection. J. Mendel‘s Pre-Fall 2013 Collection was a dreamy mixture of texture, detail, flowy fabrics, & strong silhouettes, including this lace-accented spaghetti strap gown with off-the-shoulder tiers. Also, Giambattista Valli‘s white & gold ball gown took my breath away from its Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collection & would certainly wow fashion critics if worn on Isla Fisher, Julianne Hough, or Kerry Washington.

Alexandre Vauthier, J. Mendel, & Giambattista Valli.

Valentino, Christian Dior, & Elie Saab.

There ought to be room on any red carpet for a Valentino red gown, like this strapless & effortless gown from the Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collection. Also, Christian Dior‘s Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collection featured the pink puffy mermaid ball gown. In addition, someone like Diane Kruger or Zoe Saldana can wear an floral-embellished, dramatic gown like this from Elie Saab‘s Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collection.

After Lucy Liu‘s splash at the Globes in Carolina Herrera, I knew I had to look further into her Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, which included this gorgeous black & white graphic print gown, perfect for fans of the label including Renee Zellweger, Emmy Rossum, or Olivia Wilde.  Next, from Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear, this aqua tiered dream of a gown is borderline bridesmaid, but the color is just so pretty & it reminds me of the Romona Keveza ball gown that Kaley Cuoco wore at last year’s SAG Awards.

Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, & Jason Wu.

You can’t have a look at the best from the runway without talking about American designer, Zac Posen, & his Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, which is a dramatic statement that will change the way black gowns appear on the red carpet. Lastly, a daring look for the Oscars comes from Jason Wu‘s Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collection & perhaps a young starlet like Emma Watson would wear this will some extra lining to fill the skirt since the ceremony is so formal.

Which designers are you hoping to see on the red carpet? Which gown is your favorite? Which nominees are you rooting for during this year’s Oscars?
