After a period of pandemic-related social restrictions, the world was deprived of incredible celebrity style – but 2022 more than made up for that. As fashion week and award season returned to usual scheduling, we were blessed with a plethora of celebrity fashion, and it felt as if A-listers and their styling teams made up for the lost time.

In honour of this exciting shift, we couldn’t help but bring back our Definitive Best Dressed list featuring stars that served unforgettable red-carpet moments, nailed a tricky theme or made day-to-day dressing look effortlessly chic. Africa’s most stylish celebrities were here to entertain and inspire us with sartorial decisions that reminded us just how fabulous fashion can be.

Earlier this month, we opened our polling lines with best-dressed categories that covered all spheres. We are talking Street Style, Red Carpet, TV, Music, Best-Dressed Celebrity Couples, and much more. The voting process was simple, vote for your best-dressed personality in their respective category and just like any fair poll, the celebrity with the highest vote wins!

As voted by you and in no particular order, below are the 2022 winners of the Definitive Best Dressed list.
