The article includes various celebrity images that are hot topics throughout the year.
Among them, BTS Jungkook was mentioned among various global top stars.
In particular, Elle France mentioned Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. It is reported that back in March, Will Smith got violent after comedian Chris Rock made a joke about his wife’s alopecia. In return, the actor is banned from the Academy Awards for the next 10 years.
Then, the death of Queen Elizabeth the II also made an appearance on Elle France.
Queen Elizabeth II, who was like a symbol of British modern history, passed away on September 8th at the age of 96. Having ascended the throne on February 6th, 1952 at the age of 25, Queen Elizabeth II held her throne for 70 years, which is the longest reign in British history.
The scene of Princes William and Harry, who gathered together after the death of Queen Elizabeth, was also chosen as a representative scene of the year.
The brothers, who have been in conflict for a long time, appeared together in public for the first time since March 2020. According to the British media, the scene of Prince William, Duchess Catherine (Kate Middleton), and their younger siblings, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, greeting the mourners, was “the most striking and unexpected scene in these gloomy days”.
Other photos mentioned in Elle France’s list include: Rihanna’s pregnancy announcement, Kim Kardashian wearing Marilyn Monroe’s dress at the Met Gala, the first French influencer to be invited to the Met Gala, Johnny Depp – Amber Heard legal battle, Jennifer Lopez – Ben Affleck’s wedding, Tennis star Serena Williams’ retirement, Selena Gomez – Hailey Bieber photo together, Emily Ratajkowski – Pete Davidson date, and Netflix documentary “Harry and Megan”.
Finally, BTS Jungkook, who decorated the opening ceremony of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar was also considered an iconic moment.
