Considering how many red-carpet events occur in a single week, you can imagine how tough a task it was for us to sort through all the best looks of 2012. Not that we're complaining — reliving every black-tie moment from Cannes to SoCal has been quite the sartorial journey.

Between the ball gowns, cocktail dresses, and festive frocks, we had quite the assignment on our hands. Peruse our lineup and let us know which leading lady takes the cake in your book. And, let's not forget — the 2013 awards season is quickly approaching, meaning we've got loads of haute happenings on the horizon!
