Most Outrageous Accessories
Sarah Jessica Parker’s Hat
For the London premiere of Sex and the City in May, Parker had milliner Phillip Treacy create this dramatic hat using peacock feathers that matched the ones on her Alexander McQueen dress. Treacy worked for two straight days to finish the dramatic-and quite memorable-headpiece.
Beyonce’s Metal Glove
In November, at the MTV Europe Music Awards, the singer drew attention to her left hand-and not for a glimpse at her wedding ring. All eyes were on the metal glove, designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, which also makes an appearance in Beyonce’s latest video for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).”
Victoria Beckham’s Heel-less Boots
Who needs heels? Not this fashionista. At a Macy’s appearance in N.Y.C. in September, Posh stood tall (and well-balanced!) in thigh-high heel-free Antonio Berardi PVC boots.
Nicole Kidman’s Necklace
At the Oscars, Kidman topped off her black Balenciaga dress with L’Wren Scott diamonds (nearly 1,400-carats worth!) that dripped down her front and back, creating a spectacular site from all angles.
Madonna’s Gun Shoes
No stranger to controversy, Madonna set off another round of chatter when she arrived at a film premiere in September wearing gun-heeled Chanel shoes that many deemed insensitive.
Mary-Kate Olsen’s Headband
For a charity event in New York in April, the pint-size trendsetter donned a Marc Jacobs velvet headband, worn in a halo-like manner.
Rihanna’s Gladiator Boots
Leave it to this fashion-forward songbird to dare to wear these black-and-white tribal gladiator boots from Balenciaga when she appeared on BET in June.
Pharell Williams's Bag
The music mogul calls his $67,000 custom-made Hermes Birkin his travel bag. The jetsetter has been spotted with the oversized purse quite often-including on a magazine cover and in Madonna's video for "Give It To Me."
Kelly Osbourne’s Sunglasses
Osbourne, in Luella frames, is not the only famous face spotted in heart-shaped sunnies this year-Britney Spears and Evan Rachel Wood also embraced the loving look.
Dita Von Teese’s Top Hat
Hats off to the performer for sporting this high topper to a photo exhibit in Paris in September.
