In order to say a proper goodbye to 2017, we created a small list of the most stylish moments of the year.
- Kate Middleton, full stop
Kate Middleton has always been so glamorous that we absolutely adore her. One of our favourite stylish moments of 2017 was her appearance at the BAFTA awards where she wore Alexander McQueen. Kate is currently giving a third round of maternity style while expecting her third child in April.
- Royal engagement
While we’re talking about the royal family, we must also mention the latest member-to-be. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November. The future wife of the prince definitely has style; their engagement photos are the latest proof of that.
- Supermodels reunited for Versace
Donatella Versace honoured the 20-year anniversary of her brother Gianni Versace’s death at Versace’s Spring/Summer 2018show. But she was not the only one. Supermodels Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni, Helena Christensen and Cindy Crawford took the catwalk hand-in-hand in glittering golden gowns.
- Kaia Gerber hit the runway
Cindy is not the only fashion marvel in her family anymore. The supermodel’s 16-year old daughter Kaia Gerber made her runway debut for Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. It was followed by défilés for Alexander Wang, MiuMiu, Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs.
- The most-liked post on Instagram
To sum up – Beyoncé got:
a. pregnant with twins
b. most likes on Instagram (11.2 million of them, to be exact) for her first photo announcing the pregnancy.
Queen B really has it all!
- MET GALA 2017
This edition of the MET Gala was the first one to honour a living designer – Rei Kawakubo and her brand Comme des Garçons. The gala was a blast – not from the past, but from the future. Rihanna walked one of the most emblematic looksof the night: a design from Kawacubo’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
- The legacy of Azzedine Alaia
In November 2017, iconic designer Azzedine Alaïa unexpectedly passed away at the age of 82. Alaïa was a master of creating dresses that fit and flattered the female form, worn by everyone from Grace Jones and Madonna to Rihanna and Victoria Beckham.
- Stranger galaxies and top brands
Luxury brands paying tribute to TV series or fantastic space opera series? Yes, it is already happening! Louis Vuitton sent down the runway a T-shirt dedicated to Stranger Things, and Christian Louboutin made a special line of Star Wars shoes.
- Impractical shoes to the rescue (literally)
Melania Trump wore what are considered to be the most impractical shoes for a visit of the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. What does a pair of exotic stilettos imply to people that have just lost their homes, one might ask? We still don’t know the answer.
- Sustainable decisions
Fortunately, our list ends with pleasant news in terms of sustainable living: three of the world’s most iconic brands – Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors – decided to go fur-free. With this decision, they join Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Armani.
