Celebrities Loved…The Dolce & Gabbana Star Print

Back in February, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sent models down the runway decked out in star prints ranging from fitted bustier dresses to floaty maxis.

Who knew that by the summer it would be the hottest trend around, with everyone donning that galactic print on red carpets around the world.

Asian actress Wei Tang was the first to start the obsession during Cannes Film Festival back in May.

Lily Allen and Jessica Alba dressed their baby bumps in the star print, Evan Rachel Wood and Solange opted for star-print pants, and, just this weekend, Helen Mirren (much to your displeasure) wore the now-famous Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 star print dress on the red carpet.

The trend wasn’t just confined to the red carpet, either: magazines around the world caught the fever with supermodels and actresses wearing the Dolce & Gabbana star print in their editorials.

Most Consistent 2011 – Diane Kruger

The one thing we admire most about Diane Kruger is that her style is all her own.

She never fails to deliver each time she hits the red carpet.

The German actress is rarely on any ‘Who Wore It Better?’ poll because she makes an effort to stand out from the Hollywood clones.

She continues to be experimental by bringing new designers to the red carpet like Alessandra Rich and No.21, whilst staying true to her favourites, Chanel and Jason Wu.

My personal Diane Kruger highlights this year were her Jason Wu Met Gala dress and short suit.

Best Street Style Of 2011 Award – Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr is known to us as a Victoria’s Secret supermodel, but we are now paying greater attention to her street style.

The yummy mummy has that knack, which most models seem to possess, of throwing on a simple everyday look and making it much more exciting than our everyday ensembles.

How does she do it? And with a young baby in toe most of the time.

From running errands, to walks with her family, to making her way to a runway show in Paris, the girl has a penchant for mixing blazers, leather jackets, maxi dresses, cropped pants, skinny jeans, maxi skirts, denim shorts, leather pants and slouchy tops with lustful accessories to create the perfect off-duty street style.

She’s Got Shoe Game Award – Leighton Meester

There’s something about Leighton Meester’s feet; they have charisma.

That’s because they were dressed in the most interesting, varied and fashion-forward shoes to tread the red carpet this year.

Not a ‘Trib Too’ or ‘Daffodil’ went near her no doubt well-manicured feet and we love her for that.

Now, if only her and her stylist could educate the rest of Hollywood, I would have one less thing to moan about.

Best Maternity Style of 2011 Award – Jessica Alba

In 2011 we saw more celebrity mothers-to-be than ever before.

Victoria Beckham, Kate Hudson, Selma Blair and Bryce Dallas Howard were just a few who were showcasing their maternity style on the streets and on the red carpet, but it was Jessica Alba whose style you loved the most.

Atelier Versace gowns, empire-waist frocks, brightly colour-blocked Diane von Furstenberg dresses, Dolce & Gabbana animal-print maxis, Lanvin separates and a D&G floral dress, which is still my personal favourite, put an impressive spin on maternity style.

Not an oversized sweater nor baggy pair of sweats was in sight.

Fashionista Of 2011 Award – Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo was your fashionista of the year.

She wasn’t part of the original choices, but you used the other option to cast your vote for the stylish New Yorker.

Even though some of you either don’t know who she is or don’t get the appeal, Olivia travels the world over in the name of fashion, and this year she became a style blogger.

She has collected many standout accessories along the way which instantly make a £40 Topshop dress look incredibly stylish, but her best accessory is always boyfriend Johannes Huebl.

Olivia has so much style that Stuart Weitzman commissioned her to create a shoe for their ‘Hollywood Cares’ collection.

She caused a stampede at Zara, as fashion lovers rushed to buy her floral print dress and her yellow Topshop dress sold-out online the very day she wore it.

Her favourite brands this year were Topshop, Charlotte Olympia and Giambattista Valli.
