TOPSHOP:10 Of The Most Iconic Fashion Moments Of The Decade

The 2010s have been a busy time in the world of fashion: brands have come and gone, most of the media has migrated online, rising stars have blossomed into a new generation of supermodels and Instagram has transformed the way we do fashion entirely. However, whilst it’s definitely been go go go, there are certain standout moments that we’ll never forget. So, with the new decade just around the corner, we thought we’d take a look back over the last 10 years and celebrate them all. From beautiful ball gowns and shocking runway debuts to memes and political style statements – here are the highlights…
2010: Lady GaGa’s meat dress…
This seems like a lifetime ago now that she’s a fully fledged Hollywood star, but we’ll always associate Lady Gaga with that meat dress she wore to the VMAs in 2010! Fashioned from raw flank steak, it was intended as a statement against the US military’s don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy and even has its own Wikipedia page. Iconic.
2011: The royal wedding…
The marriage ceremony of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011 marked the first Royal Wedding of the decade and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We can’t decide which was better: Kate’s unbelievably regal wedding gown or her sister Pippa’s super chic bridesmaid dress, both designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
2012: Angelina Jolie’s leg…
With a star studded guest list and an extravagant black tie dress code, we could marvel at the Oscars red-carpet roundups for days. But rather than the dresses and tuxedos, it was Angelina Jolie’s leg which took centre stage at the 2012 event. The paparazzi captured it sticking out of Jolie’s jet black Atelier Versace gown all night long and endless memes followed…
2013: Kim Kardashian-West’s Met Gala dress…
Over the years there have been many memorable Met Gala gowns that have been created to fit all sorts of themes from Heavenly Bodies to Camp. However, one that will forever stand out in our minds is the floral Riccardo Tisci gown that Kim Kardashian donned to the 2013 occasion. It was immediately compared to Mrs Doubtfire and in 2015 Kim made a joke at her own expense and dressed up in it again for Halloween.
2014: Kendall Jenner’s runway debut…
In 2014, Kendall Jenner – known primarily at the time for starring in her family’s dramatic reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians – made her catwalk debut in the Marc Jacobs AW14 show. Little did we all know that she would go on to become one of the highest paid supermodel in the world!
2015: Yeezy Season 1 at New York Fashion Week…
Although Kanye West had dabbled in the industry a few times before, it wasn’t until he dropped his Yeezy Season One collaboration with Adidas at New York Fashion Week in 2015 that his foray into fashion really kicked off! His Adidas Boost trainers skyrocketed in popularity whilst his slim-fit leisurewear aesthetic went on to noticeably influence streetwear trends worldwide.
2016: Dior’s ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt…
Maria Grazia Chiuri took over as the first female Creative Director at Dior in July 2016 and hosted her debut fashion show that September. The pièce de résistance was undoubtedly her ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt which tapped into the young Me Too movement and helped spark the logomania obssesion – in 2017 searches for ‘slogan tee’ increased by 105%!
2017: Edward Enninful appointed Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue…
The resignation of Alexandra Schulman and appointment of Edward Enninful as Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue marked a new era for the Condé Nast fashion bible. There had been uproar when, in honour of Schulman’s final issue, Vogue’s internal newsletter published a shockingly non-diverse staff photo. So, Enninful made it his mission to diversify the publication inside and out. British Vogue has since celebrated cover stars of all body types and from diverse ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds.
2018: Hedi Slimane’s Celine debut…
As creative director at Celine, Phoebe Philo had championed a new era of femininity in fashion with collections that could consistently be counted on for artful silhouettes, a refined colour scheme and a considered approach to design. Hedi Slimane, meanwhile, drew a thick indelible line under this when he took over in 2018 and presented his debut SS19 collection of rocker-glam, skinny-fit mini dresses in gothic colours. Within hours, the Instagram account @oldceline was launched to mourn the brands old aesthetic and the re-sell value of Philo-era products went through the roof!
2019: Timothée Chalamet…
Oh Timothée, what a year it’s been! Between the Louis Vuitton embellished harness he wore during awards season, the sequin hoodie he wore to London Film Festival, the overalls and lipgloss he sported in South Korea and the Eiffel tower keyring he recently used to accessorise a bright magenta two-piece – it’s almost impossible to pick our favourite look from the best-dressed boy of the moment. But, since we have to, we’ll go for this silver Haider Ackerman suit that practically broke the internet in February. Joined by Harry Styles and few others, Chalamet has spent all 2019 showing the world that there’s way more to menswear than the boring black tux.
