These days trends come thick and fast on social media, but there’s no doubt some celebrities still have the power to make certain ones go viral – even turning what they touch or promote into a genuine fashion phenomenon.

Such was the case for these three celebrities who left their mark on the fashion and beauty history books this year.

Margot Robbie

Even if you didn’t see the “Barbie” movie, you would at least have heard of it as it was nigh impossible to miss the year’s highest-grossing feature film. This also meant a neverending series of pink outfits worn by the film’s lead star, Margot Robbie.

Not content with showing off her exceptional outfits, including numerous dresses by Chanel (of which she is a spokesmodel) at screenings of the Greta Gerwig-directed comedy, Robbie also shone on the red carpets of multiple fashion events.

From the Oscars, where she caused a sensation in a long black sequinned dress by Armani Privé, and the Met Gala, where she wore a vintage creation by Chanel, to the Chanel Cruise 2024 fashion show in Los Angeles, where she stood out in jeans and visible lingerie, Robbie shone in the spotlight this year.

Beyoncé’s musical fashion show

It wasn’t on a catwalk that the platinum-album bestselling US singer made her mark this year, but on stage. During her Renaissance World Tour, Queen Bey treated showgoers to a veritable wardrobe marathon, with hundreds of outfits custom-designed by top fashion designers and couture houses.

In total, this series of concerts enabled her to put on no fewer than 56 musical “fashion shows”, a record for the “Break My Soul” performer who has over 319 million followers on Instagram.

Among the multitude of outfits in which Beyoncé appeared on stage were clothes and accessories specially designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, Balmain, Schiaparelli, Mugler, Jacquemus, Marine Serre, Paco Rabanne, Loewe, and Alexander McQueen.

Pamela Anderson goes natural

It’s an image that shouldn’t have caused such a stir: why point the finger at a woman who doesn’t wear makeup? But it did propel Pamela Anderson to the top of this year’s beauty trends.

The Canadian-American former “Baywatch” star catapulted the no-makeup trend into the spotlight, an aesthetic choice that prompted even more questioning of societal beauty norms.

Anderson confided to Elle magazine that she abandoned her beauty routine after the death of her makeup artist, Alexis Vogel.

This flash of attention dates back to Paris Fashion Week, where the 2024 spring-summer collections were on show: Anderson made several appearances without a trace of makeup, causing a sensation in mainstream media and on social networks.

And this was not a one-off move: the actress repeated this earlier this month at the Fashion Awards 2023 – an “act of courage and rebellion”, as Jamie Lee Curtis described it on her Instagram account.
