Last year saw the red carpet goers set the glamour stakes high as they sizzled at events from weddings to the Oscars.
Neat up-dos, tumbling curls, pixie crops and intricate plaits were favourites amongst A-listers and royalty in 2012.
Anne Hathaway and Emma Stone defined elegance as they teamed flawless up-dos with sophisticated crimson lips.
While brunettes Penelope Cruz and Kelly Brook paid tribute to Fifties glamour with tight curls.
Diane Kruger and Angelina Jolie kept things simple with tidy, effortless buns.
Accessories featured heavily too – Kate Middleton and Charlize Theron made sparkly tiaras their crowning glory while Jennifer Lawrence imaginatively wove a twinkling necklace through her loose bun.
