Its been a stellar year for style in 2011 and we cannot believe its halfway over! Between the Golden Globes, Met Gala, and the Royal Wedding, we have seen some jaw dropping iconic looks that will be remembered for a long time. Here are our choices for the top six style moments for 2011...so far.
1. Duchess Catherine
The Royal Wedding was the most anticipated event of the year! On April 29th Kate Middleton emerged from her Rolls Royce at Westminster Abbey in this stunning custom Alexander McQueen ivory satin gown. Catherine's V-neck gown, with a long-sleeved lace overlay, was designed by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. Catherine's dress will go down in history as one of the most iconic wedding gowns ever and is set to go on display at Buckingham Palace this summer.
2. Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton became a style icon the day her sister Kate married Prince William. Pippa wowed in a figure flattering cream cap-sleeved Alexander McQueen bridesmaids gown and the fashion world quickly took notice. Pippa continued her winning style the day of the royal wedding and wore this elegant Alice Temperley emerald green gown to the post-reception party. Since then, there's just something about Pippa and we just can't seem to get enough.
3. Mila Kunis
Red Carpet MVP, the brunette beauty made quite a splash during awards season making her an instant celebrity style favorite. When Mila walked the red carpet at the SAG awards in the stunning red Alexander McQueen abstract print gown, she set the fashion bar that night. The Black Swan star did not disappoint the rest of the award season. At the Golden Globes she opted for single shoulder emerald green Vera Wang gown and selected a lovely lavender Elie Saab scoop neck gown with flowing train for the Academy Awards.
4. Jennifer Lawrence
The young star showed she had true style on the red carpet wearing a fabulous fuschia Oscar de la Renta gown to the SAG Awards and then the curve hugging red Calvin Klein dress to the Oscars with her blonde hair cascading over her shoulders. In May she made an appearence at the "Late Show with David Letterman" and showed off her new darker "do" for her upcoming role in The Hunger Games. Jennifer flaunted her fabulous physique in this navy Altuzarra dress with belted waist, paired with YSL black heels. Blonde or brunette we feel Jennifer is making a statement and proving to be quite the style icon.
5. Diane Kruger
Diane has impeccable personal style and always graces the red carpet in something captivating and often daring! The German beauty exudes elegance and glamour,while having fun and taking risks with her style. It's no suprise that Diane turned heads at the Met Gala in this stunning slim-fitting Jason Wu gown with a thigh high slit and floral embesllishments. Diane is truly Hollywood glamorous, and she does it so effortlessly.
6. Jennifer Lopez
It's been quite a year for the multi-talented star. Jennifer started the year off by joining the judging panel on "American Idol" and instantly won over the viewing audience with her gentle critiques and amazing fashions. J Lo also released her first album since 2007, entitled Love?, and the single "On the Floor" is still topping the charts. In April she was named People Magazine's World's Most Beautiful and it's no wonder, because even in her forties Jennifer looks fabulous! Jennifer's defining style moment of the year came in February when she hit the red carpet at the Grammy's looking incredible in this sparkling, silver Emilio Pucci mini paired with a Swarovski crystal clutch and spiked stilettos.
