It’s that time of year when we look back and reflect on the best (and worst) of the last 12 months. A good roundup just wouldn’t be complete without the red carpet looks that left us in awe this past year, so take a look back at the stars who got it oh-so-right.

Kate Hudson sparkled-literally-in a sequined Chanel minidress at the Nine premiere in New York City.

Earlier this year, Esquire magazine named Kate Beckinsale the Sexiest Woman Alive. We agree she’s pretty gorgeous-she was especially stunning at the Whiteout premiere in L.A. in this strapless Jil Sander dress.

If you’ve got it, flaunt it. And that’s just what Sarah Jessica Parker did at the Did You Hear About the Morgans? premiere in a fuchsia L’Wren Scott minidress, which she paired with purple suede pumps. We loved the dress, but we also loved the coat she wore over it.

Christina Hendricks was positively glowing in a navy gown at the Emmy Awards. Maybe it was that bride-to-be glow or perhaps she just knew how amazing she looked.

Proof that you don’t need to show lots of skin to turn heads, Victoria Beckham looked stunning in one of her own designs at the British Fashion Awards.

Watching Eva Mendes confidently strut down the red carpet, you would have never guessed all the drama that went into her getting gorgeous. Thankfully, The Rachel Zoe Project documented it all for us in detail.

january jones

January Jones gets major point in our book for pulling off Betty Draper’s look every week on Mad Men, but we were delighted to see her step into modern times in this vibrant cutout dress at the Oceana Partners Awards Gala.

kate winslet oscars

We loved everything about Kate Winslet’s Oscar look from her retro ‘do to her gorgeous gray gown.

michelle obama jason wu

Though there wasn’t technically a red carpet, we just couldn’t omit Mrs. O from our list of best dressed stars in ’09. She wooed us in this amazing asymmetric Jason Wu gown at the Inauguration Ball in January.
