Whether it was Jennifer Lopez parading in style with beau Alex Rodriguez or Lady Gaga on the arm of Bradley Cooper at the premiere of “A Star is Born,” fashionistas had a stellar year when it came to style in 2018. There were a few that stood out on the “Best Dressed” lists. While some of them have graced those lists before, 2018 was an especially standout year for each. We predict them to be the most stylish celebrities of 2019 as well.
As 2018 has come to a close and we get ready to ring in our most stylish year yet, let’s take a look at four celebs who made a fashion forward impact in 2018 with their style.
Predicted To Be The Most Stylish Celebrities of 2019
Rachel Brosnahan in Rodarte
Anyone who has tuned into The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel knows Rachel Brosnahan is a star. While Season 1 premiered in 2017, it’s obvious that the actress has stepped up her fashion game, wearing gorgeous outfits from the likes of Prabal Gurung, Erdem, Oscar de la Renta and Rodarte. But more than just bold colors and feminine silhouettes, Brosnahan has stood out from the pack with metallic brocades, sharp tiger stripes, and daring patterned frocks. The Rodarte ensemble (above) is a great example of all of the stylish things Brosnahan does best including a romantic silhouette and and an appealing texture.
Priyanka Chopra in MaxMara Coat
Priyanka Chopra has had quite a year. From her stylish appearance at the wedding of Meghan Markle to her numerous appearances in Vogue and of course, her own wedding to boy bander Nick Jonas, the former Quantico actress has had numerous displays of fashion-savvy prowess. She has been spotted wearing the likes of Ralph Lauren, Dior and a bevy of Indian designers. She’s had plenty of stylish moments, but the one above is probably one of her more casual ones. In a Nili Lotan sweater, Lorod skirt, MaxMara coat and Pierre Hardy boots, Chopra shines even in something that’s less shiny.
Cate Blanchett in Mary Katrantzou
How many times has Cate Blanchett been on a “Best Dressed” list? More times than I care to say. And she shows no signs of stopping. The great thing about Cate Blanchett is that she can pull off a sharp, architectural suit or wear a lavish dress with a loud print like this one by Mary Katrantzou, as seen above. She’s also a risk-taker and it typically works in her favor. Wearing designers like Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, Cate Blanchett will continue to be a sophisticated style star.
Janelle Monae in Christian Siriano
Janelle Monae is known for her unique, fashion forward looks mainly in black and white. She stood out in 2018 because she started to wear more color. Celebrity fashionista followers will remember her colorful Nicolas Jebran gown worn to the BET Awards and her gray Gareth Pugh suit with the sleeves cut open. I especially love the red Christian Siriano suit (seen above) for its bold red color and the sculptural nature of the cape at the bottom of the blazer. Whether it’s graphic black and white or pops of bold pigment, Janelle Monae will likely be on many “Best Dressed” lists well into 2019.
