It’s been a whirlwind year for red carpet events: There were box office hits with massive movie premieres, the annual Met Gala that brought out the best in fashion, and an awards show season that proved to be more meaningful than ever. Scroll on to see who had some of the most memorable red carpet moments of the year.

Ezra Miller

Miller’s edgy fashion choices are hard to miss. The actor spent the last few months making headlines for his experimental fashion choices. His most memorable look?

Golden Globes Black Out

A sea of black dresses flooded the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards in January. At the height of the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up initiative, women in Hollywood stood in solidarity against sexual harassment and gender inequality by embracing an unofficial all-black dress code.

Priyanka Chopra

After she turned heads on the 2018 Met Gala red carpet wearing Ralph Lauren, who would have known the designer would be making Priyanka Chopra’s wedding gown just seven months later? The custom Met Gala piece made specifically for the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” took more than 250 hours to hand bead and was one the best looks of the night.
