Best dressed 2012 - Chanel-wearing, accessory queen Diane Kruger (with a few Joshua Jackson pics thrown in for good measure)

Ooh, 2012 has been a stylish year! From now until Christmas enjoy a round up of the ten best dressed celebrities, as chosen by heat's StarStyle team. It was our pleasure. Really.

First up, beautiful Inglorious Basterd Diane Kruger. We've included a few pics of her hot boyf Joshua Jackson just to make looking through this gallery even easier on the eyes.

Can our style icon be wearing a green dress with a monochrome striped skirt over the top? Well, sort of. Diane Kruger took a chance and stepped out in this 10 Crosby Derek Lam dress, tackling the tricky trend of OTT-layering. Yellow Guiseppe Zanotti heels and soft waves finsihed her easy-chic look.

Looking dramatic works very well for Krugs who rocked up to the Berlin premiere of Farewell My Queen in black Giambattista Valli. Is that really a jewelled Wildcat clutch? Yep.

Diane did jawdropping at this year's Academy Awards Vanity Fair party in a floor length red Calvin Klein gown, featuring a plunge-front showing off a lacy bandeau bra. A clean high pony, flawless make up and sparkly Fred Leighton jewels gave her standout dress extra wow.

Dramatic and so fashion, we adored this amazing Jason Wu embroidered cape teamed with simple Gucci strappies and a vibrant satin box clutch.

Where on earth have you been hiding those, Di? Krugs showed off some impressive cleavage in poppy coral Calvin Klein paired with bright white Givenchy ankle-strap heels.

Could this couple be any more stylish? We don't think so. DK contrasted her beau's sharp navy tux beautifully in shimmering golden Vivienne Westwood in Cannes this year.

Ooh, aah, eee. This is just so pretty! Kruger had a wonderful Cannes time this year, this Prabal Gurang feathered dress being one of the many highlights. Super-strappy gold Nicholas Kirkwood heels and a Roger Vivier clutch added extra glam.

Diane looked divine in this ice white Chanel creation at the amFar Cinema Against Aids gala in May. Sparkly Louboutins and smokey eyes added edge.

Even away from the red carpet the actress rocks. Here she showed off her casual style in a Comme Des Garcons tee whilst out on a date with her handsome beau.

Would you wear a fashion-forward mix-sheer Alessandra Rich outfit to the hockey? No? Well, you're not Dk. We actaully let out an audible sigh when we saw this. That might have had a little to do with the presence of Josh.

More Chanel, this time a powder blue uber-flared dress played down with elegant Christian Louboutin pumps and a cute bakerboy cap. The red lips add just that little touch of glamour this look needs. Even Joshua can't keep his eyes off her!

Err, you've got a little something-something on your shoulders...

Never one to shy away from the more 'out there' couture gowns, Diane pulled this textured column dress by Marchesa Resort off with style at a gala dinner in Monte Carlo this July.

For the Farewell My Queen screening in NYC Diane showed off her Hollywood skills in this beautifully-cut silver Azzedine Alaia gown, made modern with a coral colour-pop pout. Joshua gave us a peek of his manly chest, for which we are ever thankful.

Dk and pals Emma Stone and Amy Adams hit the Calvin Klein show at New York fashion week looking suitably fashionable. Cute glimpse of midriff, Di.

Krugs shimmered like a fashion princess in this easy Chanel tube dress, covered in glittering pailettes. Loubs and a satin yellow clutch finished her party look.

At a store opening in Paris in November Di chose a Jason Wu navy jumpsuit, adding retro glam with coiffed waves and a statement red pout. Simple and chic.

To turn on the Christmas lights at the Champs Elysees in Paris (nice!) Diane opted for a gilltering Lanvin long sleeved dress but, for once, it wasn't her frock we were taken with, it was her gorge party plaits! With her long blonde locks looped back in twin plaits, the star looked stunning. Definitely one hair 'do we're going to try this party season.
