Editors Note: Phew! Can you believe we're exactly one week away from Christmas? And only two weeks away from New Year's? The time is FLYING and it's probably because we're having so much fun sharing our 2012 faves with you (sorry, we had to). Yesterday we brought you a sillier one, our the biggest cat ladies of 2012, and tonight we bring it back to something you might have expected a little more of us, which is the best red carpet beauty looks of 2012. To narrow down our immense list of much-loved looks, we enlisted beauty correspondent Annamarie Tendler, who you might know from The Daily Face, and her halloween makeup tutorial on House Of Style! We commend her for being able to pick her top 5. There were so many good ones, we were about going crazy just thinking about having to choose!
While the dress reigns king when stepping out on the red carpet, we can't forget how hair and makeup can make or break a look. A bad chignon or over done face can destroy everything, while an amazing updo or knockout red lips can save a boring dress. Here are my top five favorite beauty looks from the red carpet this year. Oh, and the dresses aren't bad either.
CAMILLA BELLE, THE MET BALL
Camilla Belle at The Met Ball.
This is a gutsy look and it totally worked, not many woman could pull off something this harsh. This is a perfect example of dress, hair and makeup complementing each other perfectly. Camilla Belle looks like she walked out of a party in The Great Gatsby. I want to dress like this every day.
