Katie Holmes was the celeb to watch in 2008. Her style was always changing and she definitely started many trends, the most popular being rolling up your jeans.
She accomplished with look with baggy, loose-fitting denim, flats and grandpa style cardigans. Many other celebs followed suit, like Sarah Jessica Parker, but no one pulled off this “love it or hate it” look quite like Katie.
She was also one of the first stars to carry the black python Chloe Paraty purse. Mary-Kate Olsen and Jessica Biel also got the bag.
And pantsuits were in again too.
We were super inspired by the stars of Lipstick Jungle like Lindsay Price and Kim Raver.
Lipstick Jungle is of course, by Candace Bushnell, the author of Sex and the City. And that was quite a fashion moment of 2008 - The Sex and the City movie premiere!
We liked the looks of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis best at the London event.
Another movie that was shot in 2008 and premieres in early 2009 is Confessions of a Shopaholic staring Isla Fisher…although we doubt we’ll be as inspired by these outfits.
Many of you were interested in the similar looks of Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel (left and middle). Lizzy Caplan (right) and Alexis Bledel have the look too.
Our favorite look this year had to be Marion Cotillard in Gaultier at the Academy Awards. Fish scales are in! The new Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko also rocked the look.
And she made a fashionable debut at many red carpet premieres.
Of course some of the most high profile celebs this year were involved in the presidential race. Politics and fashion went hand in hand for Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama.
Here she is in a stunning Tahari suit on election night.
And Michelle wore Narciso Rodriguez on election night to mixed reviews.
Ruffles were a huge trend, specifically at the Costume Institute Gala.
And Britney Spears made a shocking style comeback. Here she is wearing Rodarte for her successful 2008 album cover.
Happy New Year!
