There is this unique quality in stars; they can shine the brightest whenever they want to and leave the world star struck. This year, we compile a list of all the stars who impressed us with their jaw-dropping styles.

Our list includes new names and old ones who bedazzled the glamour industry by simply following their unique style. 

Most Stylish Female Celebrities

Taylor Swift  In the past 12 months,  "Love Story" singer Taylor Swift has impressed with her looks on the red carpet as well as off-duty. She could carry glittery designer gowns with the same ease as a casual t-shirt and a pair of jeans. It must be mentioned that her most impressive look was when she stunned the industry by looking amazing in the Gucci Première designer gown that she wore to the Grammys.

Blake Lively – Soon-to-be mother Blake Lively looks fabulous despite her pregnancy weight-gain. The actress, who has stopped dyeing her hair, seems to have become style-perfect as she uses dazzling jewels to pair with her gowns and dresses. Her Gucci Première Met Gala gown deserves a mention.

Cate Blanchett – This Australian actress has the ability to carry anything with confidence and looking amazing. Be it a ginger-coloured wig that she wore during a shoot in Berlin or her very-famous Golden Globes look, where she donned a black lace-and-tulle Giorgio Armani Privé gown, she can leave everyone smitten.

Lupita Nyong'o  It's not been long since this Oscar-winner actress entered the industry, but she has proved that she knows fashion better than many in the industry. Making several fashion hits, this young star has managed to steal the show at major events like the Golden Globes where she wore a Ralph Lauren Collection gown. Maybe, her stylist Micaela Erlanger deserves some credit too.

Emma Watson – This "Harry Potter'"alum has earned the reputation of being a fashionista as she sits on the front row of major fashion shows and wears clothes that make a style statement of their own. She carries clothes in a sophisticated, yet glamorous manner. Her most stylish outfit of the year is the Christian Dior Couture combo gown-over-pants that she donned for the Golden Globes.

Most Stylish Male Celebrities

Benedict Cumberbatch This British heartthrob gets hearts racing by donning any outfit. Whether in his trademark scarf or without it, Cumberbatch can make a style statement. Be it a casual look – open-buttoned full-sleeve shirt over a T-shirt paired with a three-quarter pants and flip-flops – or the famous 'Sherlock' long coat, he looks absolutely breathtaking.

Matthew Mcconaughey – This star would never disappoint his fans when it comes to style expectations. You cannot miss him at any event. His surprising and amazing tux choices leaves women mesmerized. But don't think he will let you down in a casual outfit. He looks equally adorable in a button-down shirt and a pair of jeans. And wait till you see him sporting a sunglass, you will certainly take a long time to recover.

Chris Pratt – Post "Guardians of the Galaxy", this American actor let go of his everyday-jeans-and-tee look and upgraded his wardrobe to some amazingly stylish outfits. Even though he took some time to reduce his action-hero physique, he now looks absolutely remarkable in his three-piece suits.

Idris Elba  This 42-year-old British actor is known for carrying his suits better than most in the industry. Not ditching his trademark smile, Idris Elba of the "Luther" fame manages to look sophisticated and handsome. He has revealed that his favourite designers are Ozwald Boateng, Gucci, Burberry, Armani, and Prada. We hope he continues to dazzle us for a long time.

Eddie Redmayne – This British actor of "The Theory of Everything" fame says "My Pa" is his style icon. Carrying long coats and scarves in a perfect manner seems to come naturally to this star. With his favourite item of clothing being Thom Browne button-down shirt, Redmayne reveals that he loves shopping at Liberty London. Well, we can say he does a good job with that!
