In the competitive world of style, there are many contenders for the Best Dressed of 2012 list. Savoir Flair celebrates the world’s most fashion-forward women who combine style prowess, personality, and charm. There are no rankings here, only straight-up glamour.


ALEXA CHUNG Style Enigma

Though it’s hard to say exactly what Alexa Chung does, she seems to be in the business of looking fantastic. A consummate “It” girl, Chung cleverly combines the old and the new for a smart, tomboyish look that holds mass appeal.


CATE BLANCHETT Eternally Elegant

Cate Blanchett’s style is as flawless as her starring film choices. With no missteps and an audacious sense of dress, Blanchett is a permanent fixture on best dressed lists everywhere.



Even a shaved head can’t diminish the beauty of this amazing actress. Her sensational face is everywhere you look, and her tawny limbs have inspired melatonin-envy in the pale brigade. She tends to stick with classic looks that enhance her intimidating height.


DIANE KRUGER Regal and Refined

The secret to Kruger’s red carpet success is her reliance on her own style intuition. When you have an eye for fashion as keen as Kruger’s, it would be nonsense to call in a stylist. A regular sighting on front rows, her knowledge of fashion is reflected in her breathtaking public appearances.


EMMA STONE Sweet Stunner

Emma Stone is intelligent, kind, and talented – capable of balancing large-scale film roles with a quiet personal life. On the red carpet, her style choices are as perfect as her precious personality.


JESSICA ALBA Mother of Street Style

She’s perfection incarnate, which is hard to believe given her busy home life raising two young children. This supermom is a constant favorite because of her perfected street style and her approachable attitude.



Girl-next-door turned high-fashion starlet, Jessica Biel is having her best year of style yet. Her look has matured to the point where she’s considered a leading tastemaker, favoring designers the likes of Giambattista Valli and Dior Couture for the red carpet.


JOAN SMALLS Setting the Curve

Model and House of Style host, Joan Smalls is a trendsetter unto herself. When the runway isn’t dictating what she’s wearing, you can look to her for street style inspiration, or incredibly sexy, confident, body-conscious dresses for the red carpet.


KATE BOSWORTH Maven to Mogul

Kate Bosworth has turned her well-honed sense of style into a fashion business with the launch of JewelMint, but her busy schedule hasn’t stopped her from searching high and low for amazing looks. In fact, she looks better than ever.


LEELEE SOBIESKI Artistic Expressionist

We couldn’t have predicted that this name would be on our best dressed list at the beginning of the year, but LeeLee Sobieski’s embrace of avant-garde style has firmly secured her place.


MIRANDA KERR Model Behavior

She may appear sweet and angelic, but she has a fiery sense of style that inspires awe in every onlooker. She’s one of the few who can pull off sensual looks without looking trashy or overdone.


MIROSLAVA DUMA Petite Princess

She looks like a doll and dresses like a star. Miroslava Duma is everywhere right now, and for good reason. Her fashion sense is among the best in the industry, which is why everyone is clamoring for her to wear their clothes.


POPPY DELEVINGNE Socialite Scene-stealer

Delevingne has an uncanny sixth sense of what will be “in”, which means she sets the bar so high that it’s hard for others to catch up. Her style sense eschews traditional fashion choices for more daring looks.


ROONEY MARA Bold and Beautiful

Rooney doesn’t back down from daunting roles or daunting fashion. She favors neo-gothic trends with a hint of high-end glamour, and she does it all with a “What, this old thing?” attitude that is so Old Hollywood.


ZOE SALDANA Ethereal Elegance

Her fragile frame and exquisite bone structure mean that Saldana can pull off almost any look. Thankfully, she strives for excellence when it comes to fashion, so you’ll mostly see her in stunning column gowns and body-conscious, one-shoulder dresses.
