The Most Unforgettable Australian Celebrity Style Moments of 2016

This year cemented the fact that Australian style is the best in the world. Okay, we're a little biased, but it's true! We do everything really well. Red carpets, off-duty weekends, and event dressing. 

Australian style trends to sit on the more relaxed end of the spectrum, but that doesn't mean we're all thongs and denim shorts. It means elevated separates like straight-leg jeans, slip dresses, and brogues. Or it perhaps undone waves and a soft lip stain for the red carpet. 

If there's anything we take with us into 2017, it's our mission to take our fashion cues from these ladies.

Jen put her own spin on this Talulah frock when she let one strap slouch off her shoulder. This subtle styling trick transforms the look.

Margot Robbie had a big style year. It's hard to pick one favourite look, but this felt really new for Robbie. And the Givenchy heels are everything.

Jess Hart's style normally lends itself to a more preppy vibe. It was refreshing to see her step out during the second half of the year in this more 'edgy' look.

Nicole Trunfio can do a red carpet very well, but it's her off-duty style we love the most. When she teamed these Gucci loafers with embellished jeans and a Chanel sling bag, we almost fell off our chairs.

It's no secret we're obsessed with Worthington's style. But it's this look, with the coming-together of two of our favourite accessories of the year (Dior booties and Prada bag), that makes it a winner.

This is how you do winter layering in Australia. Ash proves that while we sometimes need to rug up, you can still show a little skin.

Sure, she might be a Victoria's Secret model, but we can all learn a little something from Shanina Shaik. A denim skirt, leather jacket, and stripe top will never go out of style.

Carissa Walford has had a stellar style year. From this red suit, to this Christopher Esber dress, it's hard to pick a favourite, but when she wore this Macgraw dress earlier this month, we knew this pretty/preppy mix was everything.

Phoebe Tonkin

Phoebe Tonkin is normally in relaxed basics, so it was refreshing to see her trial a little feminine frock for an L.A. luncheon.

This floral bomber jacket and metallic silver pleated dress are heavenly together. Actress and fashion blogger Sarah Ellen clearly knows what she's doing.

Jesinta Franklin is a regular at the spring racing carnival, but this Rachel Gilbert dress stood out above all the rest.
