Most Worn Dress 2012 – Stella McCartney’s ‘Saskia’ Dress

Not only was Stella McCartney the most worn designer of the year, her ‘Saskia’ cut-out side gown was the most worn dress of the year.

The gorgeous piece from the designer’s Evening Collection was first worn by Gwyneth Paltrow to the 2012 Grammy Awards, then by Shalom Harlow, followed by Brooklyn Decker and Kira Miro, before making several other red carpet appearances in navy-and-white and all black around the world.

Katherine Jenkins was the only one to ruin the look by not wearing it with the gold waistband.

It even came in a shorter knee-length version which was just as popular.

Most Worn Designer 2012 – Stella McCartney

While you may not agree with this award, I’m sure many of you are not surprised that Stella McCartney is the Most Worn Designer Label of 2012.

What’s her appeal?

Could it be her Savile Row-trained tailoring skills, the fact she’s a girl’s girl, or her undisputed fashion cred which sees every celeb want to be part of Stella’s cool gang?

One thing is for sure, she has many devotees including Liv Tyler, Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna, who are usually the first to be seen wearing her Spring, Fall, Pre-Fall and Resort collections, before being taken up by celebrities all around the world from Tokyo to Madrid and Australia.

Breakout Star 2012 – Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev is hot on the heels of that other vampire starlet, Kristen Stewart; Nina’s really come into her own this past year.

She has the hunky boyfriend (Ian Somerhalder), the sexy star quality (‘The Vampire Diaries’ series is a smash hit), and continuing buzz about her next film or TV move, all of which keep this breakout star at the top of gossip columns.

But it’s her smart fashion sensibility that is the most exciting. Nina is learning the ropes of the red carpet, turning heads whether she’s in a sophisticated Elie Saab, a spicy Reem Acra or a sexy Zuhair Murad.

However, her game-changing look that had everyone cheering was her Donna Karan Atelier gown, backless and with a wow-factor train, at the 2012 Met Gala.
