Ah, 2015. It's been quite the year style-wise, with plenty of ups and just as many downs (most of those courtesy of a certain Ms Miley Cyrus wearing nothing much at all).
Among the fashionable celebrities who never fail to deliver, such as Cate, Kruger and co, a few up-and-comers have caught the eye, like silver to a magpie.
From models of the moment to emerging actresses, these are the women to watch in 2016.
If 2015 has been anyone's year, fashion wise, the crown must surely go to Ms Johnson. Bursting out of her famous parents' shadows, the Miss-Golden-Globes-girl-turned-bona-fide-actress has proven herself to be one heck of a style chameleon in just 12 short months. The never-predictable 26-year-old can do pretty and prim high necks, oversized rock'n'roll leather jackets, red carpet glamour gowns, tailored 80s jumpsuits, androgynous tuxes... in fact the only thing I've seen her in that I disliked was Fifty Shades of Gray. Add to that her Pinterest-board-worthy knack for a good fringe, and this is a woman who looks set to provide plenty of sartorial inspiration for years to come.
The 29-year-old actress effuses that sort of old Hollywood charm that's near impossible to replicate, even with an armful of hot rollers and MAC's Ruby Woo. Thanks to her killer turn on this year's Cannes red carpet, Heard showed she's the master of bombshell dressing, pulling out statement dress after statement dress. Whether slinky satins, 50s-infused tea frocks, or frothy bow-tied numbers, each A+ choice is complemented by her shampoo-ad hair - yet she never looks over-styled. It's all down to the slightly bohemian, slightly punky, slightly gothic edge - as befits the wife of the eyelinered, trilby-wearing Johnny Depp - her makeup and updos add. Pulled together, you have that kind of effortless je ne sais quoi that suggests she was born with her baby hair twisted into a chignon, a flick of liquid eyeliner, and a pair of Louboutins on her teeny feet.
Her new album is called Revival, and it looks like the Spring Breakers star really took that title to heart over the last 12 months. Gone are the tweeny Frankendresses of lace, chiffon, sequins and saccharine-sweet pastels. Instead, 2015 is the year Gomez went grown-up with a Scandi-meets-Parisian wardrobe overhaul of sleek and chic separates and minimalistic gowns. Shaking off the remnants of her Disney past, the singer's new style mantra is modern, clean and pared-back - and by George I think she's got it. From leather joggers and layers to a modern Audrey Hepburn combo of grey-toned wool, the 23-year-old
Sure, she's not new on the scene, and absolutely, she's always been pretty flawless on the fashion front. But 2015 heralded a new evolution in the Suffragette star's style files. Shrugging off the confines of her previously mostly black wardrobe - and no judgement, mine is the same - the 30-year-old is embracing a newfound appreciation for sherbet shades and snazzy tailoring. With her typically British way of knowing how to clash prints and add just the right amount of embellishment, Mulligan makes these potentially sickly shades look classy and demure but with a quirky touch. If only this were the norm when it comes to post-baby dressing - sadly I feel the only newfound appreciation I'll embrace is the muumuu.
now favours a muted - but in no way dull - palette that's making me want to throw out everything in my closet that's not white, black or charcoal.
Crazy Eyes sure scrubs up nicely when let loose from her beige polyblend jumpsuit (for any non Orange is the New Black fans, that's her character name - not a personal diss). The 34-year-old - who is possibly one of the best actresses of the last 10 years - has been steadily climbing up the style ranks recently thanks to a myriad of award nominations and subsequent red carpet appearances. Much like Johnson, this is a woman who can comfortably morph from slinky sequinned sheaths to demure shift dresses and hot white jumpsuits, all while looking totally timeless. Renowned for her expert touch with vivid brights, Aduba knows what works for her (read: everything) and is not afraid to take risks - though I'm yet to see one fail. Always fresh, always colourful, and always guaranteed to brighten every red carpet she stands on.
On days when sporting anything other than activewear seems too difficult, I've been thinking: "What would Gigi do?" (And then still pulling on sweats anyway). With her formula of sexy and sultry dresses by night and It Girl bomber jackets and metallic brogues by day, the model of the moment consistently nails that insouciant, "I just chucked on whatever was clean" vibe that is incredibly tricky to pull off without looking like you've actually tried really, really hard. Breaking free from the usual model uniform of jeans and a plain tee, the 20-year-old glamour puss is open to experimentation, as the divisive marigold-yellow number above proves. And whether you love or hate her more out-there looks, you can't deny she makes everything she dares to wear look runway ready and just bloody darn cool (seriously, even the scraggiest of gym gear).
She may have risen to fame thanks to some granny pants, cellophane shorts, and not much else in the Blurred Lines music video, but the model-turned-actress refreshingly doesn't (always) go hyper-sexy on the red carpet. Yes, there's a penchant for a plunging neckline (and why wouldn't you with that bod?), but the 24-year-old can just as often be found in edgy culottes, baggy linen sweat pants and structured cashmere coats. Part of the key to Ratajkowski's sartorial success is her unfussy hair and makeup, choosing instead to let her trophy gowns do all the talking. Plus a woman who wears Topshop (yes, that cheongsam-inspired midi on the right is high street all the way) to the Met Ball, one of the fashion world's most prestigious events, gets a big thumbs up from me.
If I had to sum up the Game of Thrones star's style in just one word it would be FUN. And if I was allowed a second, it'd be eclectic. A champion of both the high street and niche designers, the actress has an assured, easy confidence with dressing that belies her tender 18 years. Swapping her sword and taste for revenge for a wacky accessory or a quirky fabric, Williams' ultra contemporary approach may veer too close to comic booky for some, but we believes she always remains delightfully whimsical and age appropriate. While getting outstyled by a teenager - particularly when I was sporting "boho" belts and homemade flares at the same age - could sting a bit, but her relatable, kickass vibe just makes me bow down instead. (And I'm not just saying that because she's pretty nifty with a weapon.)
Patterned mini + jazzy sandal = photo call perfection. Whether clad in laser-cut leather or metallic tweeds, the insanely beautiful Swede - and fashion editor favourite - has found an elegant and poised formula that really works for her. Unfortunately the actress, 27, has had some pretty epic fashion fails this year (she's almost exclusively dressed by Louis Vuitton which can be very hit or miss) but her understatedly chic and relaxed choices outside of big red carpet premieres fills me with hope for the future. Whether its down to those glossy curls and "how is it not Photoshopped" skin or those flirty-yet-office-appropriate frocks, The Danish Girl's Vikander certainly deserves a place on your list of style muses for 2016.
She's the Mother of Dragons on Game of Thrones, but it turns out the 29-year-old's fashion game is also on fire. Whether doing go-big-or-go-home (like the dizzyingly hypnotic black-and-white number) or restrained and graceful (such as the Dior tux dress to the left) Clarke has mastered an exemplary blend of the feminine and dramatic. Add to that a constant megawatt smile and some of the best eyebrows in the business, and you have someone I'd happily worship - no slave liberation required.
