The 50 Best Dressed Celebrities of 2021

What does it mean to have style in today’s world? These fashion-forward thinkers set the standard with originality, glamour, and celebration. After a tough year, nothing turned the lights back on like celebrities stepping back on the scene (onto the red carpet?) following season after season of virtual ceremonies and canceled events. From Bella Hadid in gilded Schiaparelli lungs to Dua Lipa’s fun retro street style, these stars came back with the energy we’d been missing. Read on for the 50 best dressed celebs who brought their fashion A-game in 2021. Zendaya

It’s only fitting that the face of Maison Valentino would serve one of the most memorable looks of 2021 in an elegant gown from the luxury label. As if the moment didn’t already feel styled to a T, even the breeze came right on cue. Fact check: Did she bring a fan? "It was actually just the wind," says our November cover star , Zendaya.
