Take a trip down (short-term) memory lane with our celebration of the past 12 months, from Brexit to Bake Off. Whether you’re sad to see 2016 go or simply can’t wait for 2017 to (ahem) trump it, here’s a recap of the year…
January Goodbye, Starmen
Sorry to start on a downer. David Bowie’s death came as a terrible shock after it was revealed that he’d been fighting cancer for 18 months before he died on 10 January. Just four days later, the beloved Alan Rickman also succumbed to the illness. Gone but not forgotten, these powerhouses of talent are sorely missed.
Hollywood’s new Power couple
At the Golden Globes on 8 January, Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender sat next to one another before attending the after-party together. The world swooned and so did we – but for a slightly different reason. Alicia’s red carpet outfits – mainly consisting of custom Louis Vuitton gowns (well, she is the brand’s style ambassador) – were some of the best we’ve ever seen. Bring on the 2017 Oscars.
