Between the slew of award shows and big red-carpet events, it was a busy week for some of our favorite style setters. We got a glimpse of the one and only Karl Lagerfeld on set at a photo shoot, and hung out with Alexa Chung as she posed for Maje. Bar Refaeli bowled us over with her jaunty hat and glasses getup, and Rachel Zoe took her throne as the chief stylist at ShoeDazzle.
December is almost over, but don't worry; we're recapping the most memorable social snaps you may have missed. Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson shared pictures from their Hawaiian vacation, while Judd Apatow ran into Tom Cruise backstage at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Miley Cyrus shared a Christmas kiss with one of her pups, and Rihanna got a hug from The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons. Join us as we reminisce over this month's greatest pics!
Thanks to social-media sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, we were able to get a glimpse inside the private lives of some of our favorite snap-happy celebs this year. Kim Kardashian kept the close-ups coming over 2012, while stars like Victoria Beckham and Sofia Vergara shared photos from various trips. Ryan Seacrest took us behind the scenes at American Idol and the 2012 Olympic Games, and Justin Bieber kept us up to speed on his world tour while also throwing in sweet snaps of his loved ones. Bar Refaeli was a social-media force to be reckoned with, and fellow model Miranda Kerr let us in on her moments of work and play at industry events.

Whether they were on a beach vacation or lounging by the pool with friends, lots of our favorite female stars made time to flaunt their bikini bodies this year. Sofia Vergara took the top honor in our 2012 Bikini Bracket, but there were several other ladies who were hot on her heels. Bar Refaeli spent most of the last 12 months in a swimsuit, as did a bevy of bikini-wearing actresses including Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, and Natalie Portman, who showed off her postbaby body in a black two-piece. We also saw the toned physiques of more hot moms like Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani. It may be hard to choose, but we want to know — which sexy star gets your vote for hottest bikini body of 2012?

Bar Refaeli brought one of her three brothers to Germany for the GQ Men of the Year Awards on Friday. She was honored with the Gentlewoman of the Year statue and shared her excitement about bringing a family member along on Twitter, writing, "Couldn't ask for a better date! The one and only, most wonderful brother in the world, love you!" Her sibling wasn't the only special guy on hand, since Shaun White, whom Bar was romantically linked to this Fall, was also there accepting his own title.
Before dressing up for the big night, Bar was seen shopping around Berlin with friends. She traveled overseas following a stop in NYC, where she made multiple glamorous appearances last week. Bar attended the Angel Ball and donned a leather look at a cocktail party for Versace.
Between a long list of parties, premieres, and store openings, you can bet the week was awash in celebrity glamour. In just the past seven days, we've been treated to an onslaught of cocktail dresses, from the likes of Erin Heatherton and Alexa Chung, no less, while dressier occasions, like this week's Angel Ball, drew out a stunning look from Bar Refaeli in a plum-hued Roberto Cavalli gown.

Bar and Stacy were dropped off at the event in Range Rovers, while Kim and Kanye arrived hand in hand and made a quick getaway afterward.
Stacy's been without her main squeeze, George Clooney, during Fashion Week, but she's been hanging out with Jenna and pal Odette Annable.
