Below, in no particular order, we round up our 10 Best Dressed Women of 2022.
Ever since she first set foot in the White House, Michelle Obama has been praised for her style, and has been credited by many as an inspiration for how to master the dress code, up-and-coming designers, and nail polish in the workplace. But this year we’ve seen a different side of Obama, one where she’s managed to embrace a more casual (and dare we say ‘cool’) look.
The former first lady In the latter half of 2022, she made a number of public appearances while promoting her new book The Light We Carry – and we’ve seen her take on a more fashion-forward wardrobe than she’s done before.
From double jeans to head-to-toe leather, lots of sequins and even sportswear, Obama and her closets led the way, away from political dress codes and into a more relaxed and free-spirited way of dressing. She’s worn Ghani, Balmain, Brandon Maxwell and even animal-print Versace. She looks like she’s having more fun with fashion than ever – and it suits her.
Every year, there’s always at least one red carpet star who breaks out, and in 2022, that was undoubtedly Taylor Russell. The Canadian actress – who starred opposite Timothée Chalamet in one of the year’s most talked-about films, Bones and All – used her promotional tour to put herself on the fashion map.

In many ways, she’s a breath of fresh air in Hollywood, happy to step outside her comfort zone and embrace some of the most outlandish trends of the moment. This has made her one of the most exciting faces you’ll ever see on the red carpet, and we’re sure this is just the beginning.
When it comes to effortless street style, Hailey Bieber has long been building her reputation as one of the most influential names you’ll ever know. The model – who has inspired countless beauty trends this year – has carved out a niche when it comes to street style, often with a muted color palette, professional dressing and a touch of perfectly groomed beauty. In the year In 2022, with a new stylist on board, she refined her uniform and brought it to the red carpet, with much success.

It could well be argued that the Venice Film Festival had its most successful, headline-grabbing year to date – at least certainly in fashion. It was in large part thanks to Tessa Thompson and Jodie Turner-Smith as stars (more on that later) who created some of the biggest – and most unexpected – red-carpet moments of the year; The former in dramatic Elie Saab, poofy Marc Jacobs and sculptural Armani Prive.
But, it wasn’t just in Venice that Thompson shined. While promoting Westworld and Thor’s Love and Thunder, the actress stepped out in a number of memorable looks, including a flowy cut-out dress by Armani and a fully stretchy long, gold gown in an up-and-coming interior.
A lot of credit goes to Thompson and her stylists Wyman Deon and Micah MacDonald for creating some of the hottest red carpet fashion in 2022.
Some actresses really enjoy dressing up for the red carpet, and Anya Taylor-Joy is one of the best examples of this right now. Whether she’s attending award shows, fashion week or film premieres, she never sticks to a straight fashion formula, and always promises to look her best, which is a joy to watch.
This year, Taylor-Joy played with personal style, embracing different looks for different events. We spotted her ensemble daring to wear black sheer Dior ball gowns, oversized Schipparelli sweaters, hugging Alexander McQueen latex, and even stepping out in a Dior oversized hoop dress. Very few can pull off all these outfits.

The actress turned heads at Cannes wearing a beautiful white sequin Armani Prive gown and Gucci mini dress with sunnies, while she once sported Valentino Rose and arrived at the premiere of WeCrashed in a sheer David Koma dress.
She radiated confidence at every opportunity. Hathaway seems to be on a new chapter with her personal style, and we can’t wait to see where she takes it.

All in all, Turner-Smith’s fashion in 2022 is fun to watch.

The British actress seems to have found her style effortlessly with such confidence at every event. Her style is very unapologetic – she’s usually feminine (she loves a pretty taffeta dress) but there’s always an edge to what she wears, whether it’s her slicked-back hair, dark make-up or vampy accessories.
Her many headline-grabbing looks make this point perfectly. Pugh wore a Barbie-pink Valentino dress at the House of Coats show in July; It was a girl, petite and made of tulle, but also completely flat. She had the perfect response when trolls decided to criticize her “two cute little nipples”.
“Whenever anyone in this industry expects my body to be hot or sexually attractive, it’s always been my mission to say, ‘Shut up and get that shit.’ Respect women.”

During her pregnancy, Rihanna wore sheer, tight or skimpy ensembles that refused to hide her figure. Although this may be While it may not be considered a big deal in 2022, and she’s not the only star to stray from traditional maternity fashion in recent years, her determination to show the world her flexible body and embrace her sexuality while pregnant is definitely something to behold. Honored.
From that Dior negligee to a crop top and low-rise jeans, Rihanna has embraced her personal style throughout her pregnancy and paved the way for us all to do the same.
Her final outfit of 2022 may have divided opinion – she wanted a very Knotties-inspired dress-over-jeans jingle bell ball – but Katie Holmes is one of our favorite celebs when it comes to street style and front row looks. .
Ever since she was photographed hailing a taxi in that kite cardigan (and matching bralette) a few years ago, Holmes has been known for her outfits, always looking impeccably put together. This year at Fashion Week, we spotted her master in a white suit and hooded gown, where she continued her style by going low-key, pairing ballet pumps with wide-leg jeans and skin-hugging skin.
