Announcing the 20 Most Stylish Celebrities of 2017
This was an unpredictable year . . . to say the least. But one thing we could always count on in 2017 was our favorite stars coming through with red carpet and street style looks that we could all agree upon.
Whether it was a Hollywood MVP, a surprise newbie, or a certain Titanic singer, these 20 stars delivered plenty of eye candy to sweeten up the last few months. Look back on the boldest moments from this year's best dressed as we reflect on 2017 and anticipate the many stunning dresses, suits, and more to come!
Millie Bobby Brown
Not just a breakout for her acting chops on Netflix's Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown has had a defining red carpet year — all by the age of 13. Capped off by Calvin Klein's appropriately demure tea-length dress at this year's Emmy Awards, the star's style is playful, daring, and, much like her roles, wise beyond its years.
The best part of news that Yara Shahidi landed a spinoff to ABC's Black-ish is the promise of more style moments to look forward to in the coming year. Smart not only refers to her intellect (she didn't get into Harvard for nothing), it applies to her personal style too, which ranged from pretty, sparkly gowns to thoughtful graphic tees.
Kaia Gerber didn't just burst onto the runway this year, she also made quite the impact off of it too. It's no shock that this genetically blessed model could nail catwalk-worthy looks, but her street style's where she both brought us back to the days of Cindy Crawford and led the way for a new generation of model-off-duty dressing.
Evan Rachel Wood
This might go down as the year of the suit, and so too Evan Rachel Wood as its reigning queen. With a vow to forgo gowns on this year's red carpets, the Westworld star made both a fashion statement and a statement.
It's almost cheating when you look this good in everything you wear, still Priyanka Chopra officially dominated Hollywood with her bold and fearless red carpet picks. Not only did she look gorgeous in her glamorous gowns, but she also had fun while doing it.
This one came out of the blue like an iceberg in the Atlantic (we couldn't resist). With a little help from superstylist Law Roach, Celine Dion had her arguably best and definitely most stylish year, whether it was strutting on Instagram or stepping out on the streets of Paris. Much like the singer herself, her look is sultry and quirky in a way that makes our hearts go on and on.
Not to be outdone, Gigi had a pretty stellar year too — from an ongoing collaboration with the hotter-than-ever designer Tommy Hilfiger to magazine covers galore. Whether she was dressed up, dressed down, or even borrowing from the boys, one thing was for sure: she looked good doing it.
Elle Fanning must have been taking some notes on the set of The Beguiled, because this was one seriously stylish red carpet circuit. Wearing age-appropriate yet sophisticated designs, this young star promises to remain on the best dressed list for years to come.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Never one to play it safe, this fashion royalty took her own place on the throne this year. Mixing bold prints, bright color palettes, and sparkle, the playful dresser makes fashion fun.
Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz
This was the year that we fell for another royal, Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia. A bona-fide street style star, this glamorous dresser earned a brief stint as the editor in chief of Vogue Arabia for its recent launch and continues to turn heads with her modest yet opulent Fashion Week looks.
Pardon the pun, but this American Horror Story actress quite simply kills it every time. Willing to take risks and step outside of the box, much like her acting choices, this fashion-forward star had some of the year's most unexpected and winning red carpet looks.
