Yahoo's 2016 Top Searched Celebrities, News Stories, Fashion Trends, and More


Yahoo has announced its annual 2016 Year in Review report, which offers a detailed look into what intrigued the minds of millions of users worldwide throughout the year.



2016 saw the Olympics in Rio, new celeb feuds and unexpected splits, street style taking over the designer runways, Damn Daniel! and his white kicks?all capped with a seemingly endless election cycle. Based on interactions with Yahoo , Polyvore, Flickr and Tumblr , here is what captivated the world.

Election Drama and Global Atrocities Dominated Our News Feeds

It's no surprise that the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election and President-elect Donald Trump, were the most searched frontrunners this year. Women also dominated the list with six out of the 10 spots filled with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Jodie Sweetin, Megyn Kelly and the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. Kim Kardashian-West took the year off from "Breaking the Internet," which allowed Khloe, for the first time ever, to beat her sister as most-popular Kardashian on Yahoo . After being on the market for nearly a decade, the ever-popular role-play game, Roblox, also made an appearance on this year's most searched list.

The news stories that grabbed headlines and secured the most page views from Yahoo readers this year reflect 2016's political landscape, as well as the tragedies and natural disasters that unfolded across the globe.

Athleisure, Celeb Feuds and Superheroes Distract Us from the Real World

Polyvore's global community of fashionistas saw athleisure reigning supreme with style staples like Adidas Superstars, Nike Air Max Theas and bomber jackets gracing the top 10 list once again. Formalwear wasn't just left on the red carpet with tulle skirts, cape dresses and gatsby dresses making appearances.

Move over Brangelina. Arguably this year's most notable split comes from the music world, with Blake Shelton's former and current leading ladies, Gwen Stefani and Miranda Lambert making Yahoo's top celebrity list. Not to be outdone, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, and exes Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez showcase just how buzzy celeb feuds were throughout 2016.
