While Beyoncé’s announcement that she was pregnant with twins was the most liked Instagram post of 2017, the singer’s performance look at the Grammys where she debuted her baby bump was just as epic!

It’s safe to say that 2017 was the year of Cardi B, and the female rapper also showed off her versatile style from the stage to the red carpet. We think Cardi B’s biggest standout fashion moment of 2017 was the princess-inspired Christian Siriano gown she wore to Rihanna’s Diamond Ball.

Zendaya’s best fashion moment of the year was her appearance to receive her Style Star Award at the InStyle Awards. While the star’s Schiaparelli gown was stunning alone, her decision to wear her hair in a beautiful Afro nailed the gorgeous look.
