2012 Celebrity Trendsetter Forecast

Rachel McAdams
Rachel McAdams
Rachel McAdams has always been cool, ever since she made us laugh in Wedding Crashers and cry in The Notebook (mostly tears of jealousy since she got to make out with Ryan Gosling). But her style choices in 2011 made us cry in a different way—the girl looked pure glam. Her red lips, perfect blond locks, chic jumpsuit, amazing silk organza and tulle Marchesa dress—we can’t get enough. This is how all movie stars should dress.

Elle Fanning
Elle Fanning
Elle Fanning is definitely the hippest young star in Hollywood, and she’s not even old enough to have her driver’s permit. Whether she’s wearing a funky short sleeved shirt, tap shoes, or a sheer, bubbly Louis Vuitton dress, she always looks fashion forward and totally at ease in her clothes. We can’t wait to see what she wears in 2012.

Beyonce
Beyonce
Beyonce showed us in 2011 that pregnancy chic is not just wishful thinking. In fact, the girl looked so good that people thought her pregnancy was a fake. Can you blame them? She was wearing plunging, sequined black catsuits, after all. Thankfully she’s really expecting, as we can’t wait to see the new mama chic she’s gonna rock on the red carpet in 2012—as well as the fabulous blinged out baby threads she’ll put her little superstar newborn in.

Carey Mulligan
Carey Mulligan
Carey Mulligan was awesome in Drive, and proved in 2011 that she has a coquettish charming style all her own. From her all pink W cover to her darling baby doll dresses to her little clutches, she always looked refreshingly sweet. We can’t wait to see more of her pretty style in 2012.

Elizabeth Olsen
Elizabeth Olsen
Elizabeth Olsen, sister of fashion darlings Mary-Kate and Ashley, strutted onto the big screen with her groundbreaking role in Martha Mary May Marlene. She has several more roles coming up in 2012, which we are excited about—but we’re even more excited to see what she’ll wear on the red carpet. Her fashion choices have become more and more glamorous with each event, reaching a pinnacle with her dazzling, slinky crystal gown.

Emma Stone
Emma Stone
Emma Stone made us laugh in Crazy Stupid Love, and luckily her sense of humor transferred to the red carpet as well. Whether she was giggling for the paparazzi, wearing a wild poka-dotted dress, or strutting in hot pink pumps, Emma Stone was fun fun fun in 2011. Here’s to more fun with Emma in 2012!

Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton left the whole world breathless when she stepped out in her stunning Alexander McQueen wedding gown last year. From that day forward, she’s stepped out as the first lady of style—whether in elegant coats, quirky hats, simple dresses, or admirably high heels. And all while doing good for others. We can’t wait to watch her help the world in style in 2012.

Katy Perry
Katy Perry
Poor Katy Perry. She may have kissed a girl long ago, but it’s Russell Brand she married—and is now divorcing. But don’t forget the girl is a firework! If there’s anyone who can bounce back from trauma by harnessing the power of fashion, it’s Katy. If you thought her so-pink, crazily printed, kitschy couture was over-the-top in 2011, just wait for 2012. This firework show is about to go grand finale.

Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner
We’ve been so busy watching Kim’s divorce drama that we almost missed how fashionable little Kendall Jenner has become. Whether she’s wearing a dress that would put women twice her age to shame, heels only the daughter of a celebrity could afford, or a whimsical pink and white cape dress, Kendall has burgeoned as the most fashionable Kardashian. Watch out for catfights over which sister gets to raid her closet in 2012.

Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian
With Kim’s recent divorce drama we can’t say we blame her for wanting to hide from the public eye these past couple of months. However, we were pleasantly surprised when she showed up on New Year’s Eve at Tao Nightclub in Vegas with an incredibly adorable new haircut. The blunt bangs suit her well. New year, new look, new outlook on life and love, Kim? Here’s hoping you rock the red carpet and put the past to bed in 2012.

Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst won Best Actress at Cannes this year for her remarkable performance in Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. Kirsten has always had fun street style, but she’s started to grow up more on the red carpet. We love the red coat, chain Chanel purse, and cream and black pumps she recently wore to Good Morning America, as well as the stunning strapless silver and tulle Chanel dress she shone in at Cannes. Here’s to more fashion wins in 2012, Kirsten.

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga ruled the red carpet in 2010 and 2011 as the most daring of fashionistas. Whether she wore a hot pink Philip Treacy hat, or a bright yellow dress with gold heart shaped Lolita sunglasses, Gaga never failed to give us something interesting to look at, and to think about. She’s always one-upping herself too. We’re gaga for gaga, and can’t wait to see what new looks she rolls out in 2012. Maybe she’ll even surprise herself this year!

Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton stole the show at her sister Kate’s royal wedding—or at least, her bum did in her figure-hugging white dress! From that day forward, she’s had the whole world talking about her fabulous British street style. Whether she’s rocking knee-high boots, funky-printed scarves, bright peacoats, or skin-tight mini skirts, Pippa’s one to watch for all the newest and most wearable trends in 2012.

Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt has reigned as king of the red carpet for years now, and we’re confident he’ll take his crown once again in 2012. After all, what better accessory can a man ask for than Angelina Jolie on his arm? We’re also digging both his sunglasses and his black hipster frames—do you think those are prescription? Either way, they’re a fun move for a “man of his age.”

Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling would probably look good wearing a paper bag over his crotch, but we dig how much of a young gentleman he is. The man loves his suits! Whether brown or black, tie or no tie, he always appears in pants and jackets that are supremely well-fitted. Here’s to a well-suited red carpet in 2012, thanks to Ryan.

Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel was the breakout TV star in 2011 with her hit show The New Girl. She’s always dressed super cute—to the point where news articles ponder whether she is “too cute.” We don’t think there’s any such thing, and can’t get enough of her quirky, vintage-inspired red carpet choices. Here’s to cute overload in 2012—bring it.

Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo may be the most talked about movie of the year, but actress Rooney Mara has got us talking about her bold, sleek style choices. If her recent choices on the street and red carpet are any indicator, this girl’s got mod beauty down pat. Here’s to more sleek white capes and little black dresses in 2012.
