By Liz Calvario
2017 has come and gone, and with it, a slew of celebrities who have turned heads and dropped jaws with their incredible red carpet ensembles and stylish street style.
The year included some top-notch fashion newcomers and stand-out stars, icons who dressed to impress, and couples who stepped out looking like they just walked off a runway.
ET is rounding up the most stylish celebrities of 2017. Scroll down to see who made the list.
Queen of 2017: Zendaya
The 21-year-old starlet made headlines and ruled the red carpets with her show-stopping style. Never afraid to take risks and experiment with her look, Zendaya is a chameleon who excites fashion lovers with her unique and unexpected options. From her gold and coral Dolce & Gabbana gown and full hair at the 2017 Met Gala, to her fro and ruffled Schiaparelli dress at the InStyle Awards, to her blond pixie cut wig and sexy Vivetta dress at the Fashion Awards 2017, the Spider-Man: Homecoming star reigns as queen of 2017.
King of 2017: Harry Styles
No suit was ever too wild for the 23-year-old singer, who took men's fashion up a notch in 2017. Channeling David Bowie and Prince on many occasions, Styles was never afraid to wear flamboyant styles, floral prints, wild colors and out-of-the-ordinary wide-leg trousers and cuts. This year, we bow to Styles' fierce and fun wardrobe.
Most Stylish Sisters: Gigi and Bella Hadid
Whether on or off the runway, the Hadid sisters SLAY the fashion game with their own individual styles. Gigi, 22, has a sweeter and classic look that involves softer shades and more feminine selections. Meanwhile, Bella, 21, oozes sex appeal with her sultry attire, which usually consists of comfy street style, leather and darker tones. Their style is the best of both worlds!
Risk Takers: Jared Leto and Margot Robbie
Jared Leto loves his Gucci and lets it be known. The Oscar winner and musician has a flair for the eccentric and wild, yet can still clean up for a black-tie affair -- and every look includes his signature touch of fun. While not all of his ensembles may be winners, it's Leto's willingness to wear whatever he deems worthy that is admirable.
As for Margot Robbie, the 27-year-old actress oozes confidence with every selection she makes for a red carpet event, press day or afternoon out. Robbie's style is unique in that she dares to wear what most don't expect her to. Whether it's a pantsuit for a movie premiere, a minidress for an interview or a pencil skirt for a special appearance, the Aussie-born star keeps it 100% authentic.
Icon Turned Fashion Royalty: Celine Dion
No one made more headlines this year with her radical style than Celine Dion. The 49-year-old singer took the fashion world by storm in 2017, starting with her custom-made Versace Met Gala gown. Then she took our breath away in a white Stephane Rolland Haute Couture dress at the Billboard Awards.
"Everybody thinks it's my clouds [that get in the way]," she joked. "It's my train! This is Stephane Rolland Haute Couture, who is the creator of this dress, and of course Law Roach is my stylist who brought it to me. I said, 'Forget about the rest of all the 15 racks you brought me, this is it.'"
Most Stylish Couples: Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez & Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade
Dubbed J-Rod, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are one of the most fashion-forward twosomes that we’ve seen in years. The two instantly fell head-over-heels for each other, as did fans for their elegant and head-turning style. And, as two successful business owners, J-Rod kept things classy and sexy at the same time.
As for Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, the 45-year-old actress and the basketball player redefined couple goals with their coordinated and sophisticated outfits. Whether they were attending a fashion show, red carpet event or were just out and about, Union and Wade took their style to the next level.
At the CFDA Fashion Awards in June, Wade gushed to ET about his lady's style, saying, "It's everything. It's the hair, it's the big hair. You know, my wife don't normally go for the big hair. She's been doing it lately, so you know, it's the whole thing. I love, like she said, I love the jacket as well. It's chic, you know. She look relaxed, but it's still sexy. I like it!"
"We never get dressed in the same room," the NBA champ explained. "We always come out and be like, 'Oh! OK.' We oddly coordinated in some way, so it worked!"
Classiest Movie Star: Nicole Kidman
When you think of elegance, Nicole Kidman comes to mind. The blonde beauty has a knack for wearing whimsical, feminine and stunning gowns to all the major events. This year, the Oscar winner brought fashion lovers some of the most romantic red carpet looks, like her Palm Springs Film Festival Dior gown and her Emmys A-line red Calvin Klein dress. She also spiced things up with a handful of sultry styles, including the shimmery Gucci dress she donned at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Most Likely to Copy Their Style: Donald Glover and Issa Rae
Whether he's on stage as Childish Gambino or accepting Emmys for his series Atlanta, Donald Glover is an A-list dresser. The way that he styles himself truly shows how committed he is to his individuality and also proves that's he's not afraid to get playful. Everyone can look to Glover for inspiration on a casual outing or a formal event, because he always brings it!
Issa Rae truly had an amazing year, so it's no wonder the Insecure creator and star's stunning style made the list! Among her stand-out moments was her daring white Leilou by Aleksandra Dojcinovic sheer dress with a black bodysuit underneath, and her multicolored bespoke Vera Wang dress, as well as her red Emmys gown from the same designer. We can't wait to see what next year's ensembles look like!
Best Young Hollywood: Brooklyn Beckham and Millie Bobby Brown
Brooklyn Beckham's style takes after his famous father, David, perfectly rugged and put together all in one. The 18-year-old photographer has an appreciation for fashion, which stems from his stylish parents.
"My favorite outfit is like a Peaky Blinders kind of look,” he shared earlier this year in an interview with GQ. "I have a really old-man style. I’m also really into skateboarding outfits, like the baggy Vans jeans? But I don’t like dressing saggy, like American my-age kids do."
What's charming about Millie Bobby Brown is that, at 13 years old, the Stranger Things star dresses her age and keeps things flirty yet age-appropriate. The actress knows what works best for a certain event or appearance, and whether it's an all-Gucci ensemble or a feminine pants and crop top pastel look, Brown is the coolest and best dressed kid in Hollywood.
Newcomers: Timothée Chalamet and Kaia Gerber
Say hello to your newest crush! Call Me by Your Name star Timothée Chalamet has had everyone talking since he stepped foot at the Berlin Film Festival in February. Since then, the 21-year-old actor has subtly showed off his killer style, which includes minimal jewel-toned colors, cropped trousers, sleek coats and sweaters. In 2018, Chalamet will not only be breaking hearts, he'll also be topping the best-dressed lists at all the awards ceremonies.
Kaia Gerber comes from supermodel royalty -- her mom is Cindy Crawford -- and has hit the ground running since she made her runway debut at 2017 New York Fashion Week. The 16-year-old model's style instantly became the hottest look of the season, and she also became the must-have model on the runways. Make sure to keep your eye on Gerber, as she's not going anywhere anytime soon.
