My Favourite Fashion and Red Carpet Moments of 2012


Mulberry had, in my humble opinion, the best advertising campaign with their eccentric, tongue-in-cheek Brighton Rock spring summer 2012 campaign. The oversized props and ice-cream coloured items still has been wishing I was by the seaside. Read the Mulberry post here.



Ah, February. The home of Autumn Winter Fashion Weeks the world over. How can I pick just one catwalk show to sum up AW 2012 fashion weeks for me? Well I can't! From Jason Wu and Badgley Mischka in New York, to Jena.Theo and Clements Ribeiro in London, they were all different and fabulous in their own way. 

The baroque, decadent drama we saw at fashion week was so apparent on the high street this season, with velvet, baroque embellishment and dark berry shades. Read all my autumn winter 2012 fashion week posts here.




We had Paris Fashion Week, including a stellar show from Alexander McQueen via Sarah Burton. But I had a great month as I was nominated for the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards. Sadly no awards, but got to catch up with lots of my favourite faces. Click here to read the Compang Blogger Awards post.




Coachella got us in the mood for festival fashion, with A-list stars showing how to do festival chic even in desert heat. BFF Rihanna and Katy Perry led the fashion pack and showed that 90s fashion is definitely back in town and reminded us how much we did love our bomber jackets. Read the Coachella fashion from the fields post here.



One of my favourite red carpet events of the year is always the Cannes Film Festival, and in 2012 we had some amazing looks from Cannes favourites Eva Longoria and Dianne Kruger, but also some surprises from new-comers like Jessica Chastain in Gucci - fluid, floaty red carpet perfection. Read the Cannes Red Carpet post to see all the dresses.



The Spice Girls reuniting on the red carpet for the launch of Viva Forever, their new musical with all their 90s hits, has to be a highlight. Any child of the 90s will share the joy of seeing all 5 of them back together (no matter how bad the reviews are now the musical is out!). Read the Spice Girls Red Carpet post here.


As we swelled with pride during the Olympics, people showed their Team GB spirit with their nail art. We saw GB print nails and athletes and DIY tutorials on blogs around the world as people wore their sporting hearts on their nails, not their sleeves. Read the Olympic Nail Art post here.


Jessica Biel was a new Red Carpet Queen on her Total Recall promotional tour. Wearing lots of nude and white shades with feminine, classic silhouettes and delicate fabrics she added a romantic flair to the red carpet. My highlight was the Dior number seen above, pure old school glamour. Read the Jessica Biel Red Carpet Queen post here.


Can it be Fashion Week time again already?! Of yes it is, September means it's time for the spring summer fashion weeks to start and the fashion pack will be rolling into town again. Summing up spring summer 2013 perfectly for me has to be Marc Jacobs and his psychedelic stripes and 60s inspired collection. Darker colours than usual for summer, but I'm hooked. Read all the spring summer 2013 fashion week posts here.


Another year filled with stunning wedding dresses was topped off by Anne Hathaway in Valentino. The delicately pink toned gown had off the shoulder detail and endless lengths of tulle and crystals. The sketch that Valentino released was almost as beautiful as the dress its self. Read the post about Anne Hathaway's Wedding Dress here.


After catching my eye earlier in the year as the covergirl of asos magazine, Elizabeth Olsen (little sister to Ashley and Mary-Kate), remained a firm favourite of mine thanks to her sleek red carpet style and laid back everyday style of tees, classic denim and perfect accessories. Read all about Elizabeth Olsen's style here.


And we're back to December! Where has the year gone?? So as December and 2012 comes to an end, all that's left to do is pick your New Year's Eve outfit. I've picked some of my favourite looks for all budgets for New Year's Eve. See all the New Year's Eve outfit ideas here.

What was your highlight of 2012?
