Premieres and parties may be far and few between, but the first few months of the year still delivered plenty of glitz and glamour

This year has been full of lots of things; baking banana bread, Zoom quizzes and hand sanitiser, for example.

One thing it's been lacking, however, is the usual lashing of glitz and glamour.

The global pandemic struck a blow to red carpets across the world, with traditionally A-list affairs either taking place virtually – such as the Emmys – or cancelled entirely – including the Met Gala – as the coronavirus took hold.

However, it hasn't been an entirely quiet year, with events such as the Oscars and Golden Globes taking place before restrictions were introduced around the globe.

While we may not have as many premieres and awards bashes to pluck breathtaking gowns from in 2020, stars including Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Priyanka Chopra and Janelle Monae gave us plenty of sartorial inspiration before lockdowns struck.

Bold, block colours in minimal silhouettes, ethereal creations emblazoned with shimmering sequins and avant-garde approaches to eveningwear all impressed throughout the year, with labels such as Versace, Dior and Valentino dressing many a celebrity.

Regional labels including Georges Chakra and Zuhair Murad also stole spots on numerous best-dressed lists, worn by the likes of Kerry Washington and Youssra.
