From the Oscars and Golden Globes to the Met Gala and Venice Film Festival, 2021 gave our favorite celebrities a chance to unleash their A-fashion game. Some of them truly understood the assignment, and these five ended up giving us some of the best red carpet looks of the year.

Gemma Chan

Gemma Chan’s fashion choices have always been on point, but she outdid herself this year, especially while attending press tour events for Eternals.


We can count on Zendaya to stun on each red carpet event that she attends. She was on top of her game throughout 2021, while promoting both Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Lil Nas X

If we had to pick a single best-dressed male star of 2021, the crown would definitely go to Lil Nas X. He pulled no punches in 2021 and he broke boundaries between masculine and feminine with each look he rocked this year.

Anya Taylor-Joy

Anya Taylor-Joy became our new fashion muse thanks to Queen’s Gambit and she’s proven to be as stylish as her iconic character at several high-profile events—from Golden Globes to the Venice Film Festival.

Jodie Turner-Smith

If we had to pick the biggest rising fashion star of 2021 it would definitely be Jodie Turner-Smith, who gave us several unforgettable red carpet looks since becoming a Gucci ambassador.
