Best Red-Carpet Looks of 2012

Best of 2012: Who Is This Year's Red-Carpet Queen?

The time has come to choose 2012's red-carpet queen! Presenting five very deserving nominees: Emma Stone, Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Middleton, and Kristen Stewart. While they all look great in casual jeans and flats, there's something truly showstopping about when they slip into a gown and high heels. Who can forget Gwyneth's ultrachic Oscars moment in white Tom Ford? We also witnessed Kristen Stewart come out of her shell, embracing her role as a total Hollywood — and red-carpet – star in gowns like this fiery Reem Acra. Meanwhile, Emma Stone proved her fashion-darling status while promoting The Amazing Spider-Man in high-wattage gowns from Chanel and Giambattista Valli, and Diane Kruger gave us a plethora of wow-worthy gowns on every red carpet from Cannes to Beverly Hills. Of course, we've also been captivated by the lovely Kate Middleton's red-carpet turns in an elegant array of dresses from the likes of Jenny Packham and Temperley. Take in all five stars and their red-carpet moments, and then cast your vote below.

Emma Stone. Her style is experimental, generally flattering, and she looks like she's actually having FUN with her closet, not just sticking to safe bets to look sexy. It's surprising how Kristen Stewart is in the overwhelming lead, given the recent affair.

I have to say the Dutchess' turquoise gown was the most beautiful gown I've ever seen. But for me, Emma was the best dresses in general. Kristen is so awkward that no matter what she puts on, it always looks like something is wrong.

My fashion heart will always belong to Diane Kruger but I've got to give credit where credit is due. Emma Stone killed it this year.
