Below are our most popular headline looks for 2021.

While she coordinated her clothes The duo broke the internet for countless outings at the Billboard Music Awards in May thanks to Megan’s dazzling performance Detail of Mugler LBD and MGKs matching painted tongue. A bit freaky, but totally fascinating.

A look at the looks of the couple from her red carpet debut in Venice – a deep white dress by Georges Hobeika for her, a classic Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo for him – and it is clear how far these lovebirds of the early years have come.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
The Poosh founder has denies changing her personal style to keep up with her husband, but she’s certainly hugged darker, edgier ensembles this year. Case study? She chose the laced leather look by Olivier Theyskens for her first carpet with Travis at the VMAs, which happened to go perfectly with his studded Thom Browne suit. Keep rocking you crazy children.
Rihanna and A $ AP Rocky
After years of romantic rumors, Fenty Beauty founder and rapper F — kin ‘Problems finally got things official on fashion’s biggest night: the Met Gala, where they closed the carpet that looked like luxury snuggies. How’s that for a power move?
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Most people would go the formal route for a presidential meeting, but not the Biebers! For a rendezvous with Frenchman Emmanuel Macron in June, Hailey decided on a bodycon dress from LaQuan Smithwhile Justin outfitted his striped Celine suit with necklaces and Nikes instead of the traditional tie and dress shoes.
Her laid-back looks may have divided fans, but at least they weren’t boring.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Leave it to these two to further coordinate despite divorce. Kim who is long credited Kanye for introducing her for the fashion industry, apparently attending the Met Gala in a face-obscuring Balenciaga outfit inspired by her ex – so much so that fans assumed he was the mysterious masked man by their side. In fact, it was designer Demna Gvasalia, a mutual friend of the former couple, who happened to be overseeing the creative team for the rapper’s “Donda” events earlier this year.
“Kanye gave her the courage to nurture creativity and people’s imaginations through art,” a source told Page Six Style of the polarizing look. OK!
Zendaya and Tom Holland
We can’t imagine the pressure of standing on a red carpet next to Zendaya – or anywhere, really – but her “Spider-Man” treasure showed how at the LA premiere of the newest installment in her franchise, “No Way Home.” It’s going ok. Tom’s double-breasted Prada suit complements Zendaya’s Webby Valentino wonderfully without outshining him. As if anything could.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Since stepping down from royal roles and heading to California, the Sussexes haven’t had many reasons to dress up. So it was exciting to see them back in her best black tie at the Salute to Freedom Gala in November in NYC.
Meghan swapped the more conservative looks she preferred in the UK for a glowing Carolina Herrera gown with a plunging neckline and dramatic train, while Harry looked as dapper as ever in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo adorned with his military medals.
Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey
It doesn’t get any hotter than this absurdly photogenic (and largely private) Pair. While they don’t have to make their red carpet debut just yet – keep your fingers crossed for 2022! – Michael and Lori occasionally share snaps of their stylish date night looks on social media. This February highlight proves that black doesn’t have to be boring from head to toe.
