All The Style News That Rendered Us Speechless In 2014

While this year feels like it went by in a flash, it was filled with plenty of jaw-dropping fashion and beauty moments. 2014 started off with a bang -- or should we say hat, thanks to Pharrell Williams' Vivienne Westwood topper that quickly went viral -- and is finishing up with a little mayhem, as in Mayhem, the 4-year-old who just inked a design deal with J.Crew.

Other reasons to rejoice (or recoil) this year came courtesy of Kim Kardashian's butt-and-center Paper magazine cover, Anna Wintour's ice bucket challenge, and Solange Knowles' wedding, to name a few. Sadly there were also some lows, like the loss of several fashion icons, including Oscar de la Renta, Joan Rivers and L'Wren Scott.

But, all in all, it was a fabulous year and we're looking forward to what 2015 has in store.
