Fashion and style mean different things to different people. Timeless fashion is more appreciated as time goes on, however many prefer to create statement with their clothes. Whether you love to follow the latest fashion trends, or prefer to make your own, fashion is something that you cannot ignore.
When you are famous, these become of the utmost importance. Celebrities have the ability to start new trends, shut them down, or give them a new twist. Even if you do not take an active interest in the red carpet outfits, you cannot deny that some of them generate enough of a buzz, that you are bound to notice them. But in order to land on this best dressed list, it is not just about generating a buzz, but about the way the outfit looks as a whole! Many celebrities decided to push boundaries this year, and created some memorable outfits (some may even call them outlandish). They have inspired us to be bolder when it comes to making fashion choices, and have inspired some exciting outfits.

Naturally, people wanted to learn more about her sense of style, and speaking to InStyle, she said “When you are trying too hard to make a mark, it doesn’t feel as authentic.

These best dressed celebrities 2018 could never be finished without mentioning Rihanna. She has been a style icon for several years, and with her new foray into the make-up industry, we are able to get a better glimpse into her sense of style.

Instead of wearing clear plastic lined shoes Rihanna chose to put on a pair of pump heels by Gianvito Rossi which had PVC tinted in pink, as well as a slim ankle strap. Needless to say, Rihanna looked fabulous, especially since she paired her shoes with a simple form fitting black dress with a zipper running a quarter of the way down the front. She also donned on a silky black jacket that had a bright neon orange lining along with a mini black purse. She was the picture of sophistication. She added her fair to an otherwise simple outfit, and showed us yet again why she is a fashion icon that many look up to.
