Who exactly ruined fashion in 2022?
The New York Times has revealed the 93 most stylish personalities in 2022. This is a list based (heavily) on beauty, fashion and influence, but not exclusively.
Some celebrities have truly shaken up the fashion codes in 2022, breaking all sorts of conventions and preconceptions in the process.
From Rihanna to Margot Robbie, see 10 stars who changed the fashion game in 2022.
Although more discreet of late, Rihanna has been the subject of much attention since her pregnancy was announced earlier this year. And the 30-year-old ditches convention by showing the world she doesn’t care, flaunting her baby bump, pregnancy figure and stretch marks, aging tops, see-through dresses and skimpy skirts. What can anyone say? Forget the sanctimonious clichés surrounding maternity wear, Rihanna has changed the game – and paved the way for others to follow – all while revolutionizing the world of maternity wear.
Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet
In the year At the end of 2021, Harry Styles, who is considered to be the epitome of a free-thinking generation, has not stopped criticizing and breaking the rules of gender-based fashion, even promoting his own gender-neutral beauty brand. But he is far from alone in this mission.
Timothée Chalamet has also liberated many of the norms associated with masculinity, embracing non-binary fashion and style. For example, check out her backless dress at the Venice Film Festival that set social media on fire. Lil Nas X, David Banda and Billy Porter can be added to the list of celebrities helping to break down some of these limitations.
Margot Robbie was not included in the New York Times list, which chose to include Ryan Gosling as Ken in the upcoming “Barbie” movie. However, it is the Australian actress – playing the role of the most famous doll on the planet – who finally brought one of the key trends of the year, “Barbiecore”, an unexpected pink wave to fashion. Many other sectors.
The star of the film – which is scheduled to be released in summer 2023 – is undoubtedly one of the celebrities who will make a big mark on the fashion world in 2022.
The return of ‘normcore’ could clearly position Mark Zuckerberg as a fashion icon later this year, but the fact that the icon has been seen sporting luxury clothing by Tom Brown – among other designer outfits – allows for a meta boss. Although Metavas has not met the expected level of success (so far), he can be considered as one of the most beautiful personalities of the year.
However, the entrepreneur can be proud of launching his first digital clothing store Meta Avatars Store this year and making an unexpected foray into the world of fashion.
While some may be throwing out stereotypes and preconceived notions related to gender or age, Lizzo is on a mission to remind everyone that the body positivity movement is not just a passing trend — it’s here to stay, even if there’s some frequent backlash. Not content with regularly checking in on the red carpet, the American singer and flutist is at work behind the scenes.
In the year In 2022, she launched her own brand of shapewear, Yetti, with creations designed to fit (absolutely) all women, body positivity and self-affirmation.
There’s no denying the impact of the hit show “Euphoria,” the second season of which aired earlier this year. Madeleine Perez, aka Maddie, played by Alexa Demi, is one of the show’s main characters who helped spark a 2000s fashion revival with low-rise pants, crop tops, butterfly accessories, chokers and overalls.
Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid picked up the torch to make this trend one of the year’s highlights.
You might be wrong to think that the era of star models is coming to an end – but it’s not. Anyway, not for a few like Bella Hadid who shines all year round. But the spring-summer 2023 runway show from Copernicus — the fashion house helmed by designers Sebastian Meier and Arnaud Valant — was when the supermodel really stood out. This is because of the couple’s spray-on dress on Bella Hadid’s body.
Almost naked, the model was sprayed with a liquid that turned into fabric on contact with her skin. Gigi Hadid’s sister was the real deal that brought her into the limelight. In fact, she was named “Model of the Year” by the British Fashion Council.
It might not be the smartest thing to say, but Grace Ganem just celebrated her 57th birthday. And she decided to break her preconceptions, this time is related to age. Invisible, she certainly doesn’t dare to try on all the clothes and makeup she wants, and proves that age really is just a number.
A style icon for all women, she now has almost a million followers on Instagram, and is never known to be in the front row of a fashion show. She didn’t make the New York Times list, but she did appear at Fashion Key this year, helping to bring women over 50 out of the shadows and into the limelight.
Queen Elizabeth II
There is no way that Queen Elizabeth II would not climb this ladder. The Queen of England who passed away on September 8. She marked 2022 – as well as the last seven decades – with her signature style. Her colorful dresses designed to make her stand out in public, her iconic hats, her pearls and her famous handbag, all made the late emperor a long-time fashion icon.
The evidence? The dress the Queen wore for her last public portrait in June was the talk of the world – and the internet – within minutes, reflecting the intense interest surrounding each of the Queen’s chosen designs.
