2021 has been quite the year, and that is something we can all agree to. The good, the bad, the fashionable and more, this year has been an eventful one. Many awards shows and events decided to resume in-situ red carpet appearances. That was before the Omicron variant decided to make an unwelcome entry.
Having to physically be on a red carpet means giving everything to your appearances, and the stars don’t play with that. They showed up and showed out. From the Grammys, to the Oscars, Met Gala, British Fashion Awards, the Headies awards, and Emmy Awards. Then to the countless movie premieres and more, 2021 presented ample opportunities for a fashion showdown. Not to forget to mention our exclusive weekly top 10 best dressed stars fashion list that has been a hit back to back. See it all HERE.
