Pin-thusiasts everywhere use Pinterest to plan out pretty much everything in their lives — from their home décor to their gluten-free pancake recipes. But in addition to the everyday style inspiration users find and share on the platform, they are getting inspiration from red carpet fashion too. And even though they may seem like eye candy, the year’s most popular celebrity looks went hand-in-hand with the biggest search trends. Here, check out the gowns that made it onto thousands of mood boards in 2017, according to the visual inspiration platform.
