Red carpets, catwalks, streets, stages…when you're a name like Beyoncé or Taylor Swift all of the world is really is a stage. Actually no, it's a runway. A long, decadent runway with the paparazzi duking it out for a single photo. This year we've seen it all: blue hair, nip slips, neon and enough sequin to satisfy the Miss America Pageant.
Needless to say, there were some definite awful moments which were so horrendous you really just had to laugh. However let's focus on the best and those specific moments that made us clamor for more (some pop stars even had more than one star-studded, fashion moment).
She's America's sweetheart and we wouldn't want it any other way. Swift's knack for pretty and prim with a splash of glam keeps her a consistent favorite on the red carpet. While red is her signature color, it was her white that really made these looks hang around our subconscious all year.
Beyonce does glam in only a way she can: she takes it to the max. Feathers, fringe, sequin...it's all fair game and this drop dead gorgeous number she wore to the Met Gala was Queen Bey in purest form.
Rita has quickly catapulted to the top of the charts and her style is no different. Bold color and the occasional statement accessory made her a standout this year on more than one occasion. We also love her signature red pout.
It's Gwen. For the most part, she can do no wrong. Heck, now that we think about it, has she ever not given the red carpet justice? While the mid-maven shelved the tummy this year at the AMA's we love that she kept it simple in Balmain.
