Ezra Miller

Miller has been hailed as one of Hollywood’s most promising young actors for years, but he really came into his own and broke new ground with his fashion choices in 2018.

Meghan Markle

Markle made dozens of best-dressed lists long before she became Duchess of Sussex, but she constantly made the headlines by breaking royal protocol with her outfits this year – and that’s how she deserved a place on our list.

Kaia Gerber

It was just a matter of time before Gerber became a successful model just like her mom Cindy Crawford, and 2018 was her year to shine.

Chadwick Boseman

King of Wakanda also ruled the best dressed lists this year and proved the world men’s red carpet fashion can be much more innovative and playful than we’ve ever thought.
